Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC

1 Answer

My computer won't let me F-10 . I sometimes need to turn on and off my p.c. several times before I can get it to work. I am on dial up and I know that is slow. However I have this constant problem with p.c. getting an error and shutting down. I was told the F-10 option could help but when I try to use it my mouse or the keyboard won't let me do anything.

    make sure your PC has enough free space on the hard drive to run freely. if it is almost full, delete some files until you have like 10 or 11 gigs free. If you still have problems, run a good anti- virus and a good spyware program. it sounds like you have a virus that is shutting down your pc. Having a full hard drive will also make it crash.

My samsung galaxy pocket won't turn on!!!. please help.


It happens sometimes that a phone does not turn on. This is due to both mechanical or electrical problems.
Try the following:

- open the phone cover and detach the battery
- after 15 seconds attach it back
- try turning on the device

If it does not work repeat the above procedure at least 10 times.
If it turns on the suggestion is to not turn it off anymore if the procedure was tried more than 3 times.

Skill 7292 hand sander won't turn on


a lot of times sawdust gets into the switch contacts and won't allow the tool to operate. I would try turning the switch on/off several times and see if it temporarily helps. Also check the cord. Let me know if you need more assistance.

I have a Maytag LSE1000. The dryer and washer each have an issue at the moment. The dryer intermittently won't engage when it is turned in. When you press the "regular" button to start it,...


I really have NO idea what's causing your Maytags to misbehave, BUT I can tell you that the Maytag service centers have always been very accommodating when I've called about problems with dishwashers, dryers, and washing machines.They have explained the construction of the appliance and even told me the type of tools I needed to make repairs! If you still have your owner's manual, the toll free number should be in there. I hope this helps!

Hpm 24 hr manual timer , i dont know how to get it working


HPM 24 hour timer has segments located around dial.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#HPM-dial

http://waterheatertimer.org/images/hpm-24hr-timer-500.jpg

Segments appear to move up or down.
Other similar timers: Segments down = Load ON; Segments up = Load OFF
Press several segments down.
Plug timer into wall.
Plug 240Volt load into timer.
Manually rotate timer dial clockwise to see if segments down turn load on or off.

There is also a 2-position slide-switch located on top of timer.
Move slide switch to each position to see which is need for timer to turn load on-off.

After positions are defined, push segments down or leave segments up for times you want load to turn on.
Rotate dial clockwise until current time lines up with arrowhead located on inner dial.
Timer dial rotates as time passes, and segments move a plastic lever that turns load on and off

Add a comment for more free help.
Also take advantage of fixya phone service.
For a price, expert speaks with you over phone while you work on timer or any do-it-yourself project.
Fixya is always less expensive than a service call.

I lost my manual. My oven is over 10 years old and has 2 dials for automatic on/off. I never use these dials. Somehow, someone turned them and now I cannot manually turn my oven on. I feel really dumb. I'm...


Hi, You are NOT DUMB. Believe me, It has happened to every person I know that has an oven with one of those timers. It has happened to me and I am trained as a professional technician. Why, it even says here I am a Guru. The day your problem first stumped me, I didn't feel like I was a Guru.
There are several variations to those timers so I will try to cover all of the bases. If the clock has three dials, two small ones and 1 big one. Turn one of the the pointers of the two small dials to the same direction as the other. You will hear a clicking sound. Alternately push each one and then try the oven.
On the Fridgidaire, if my memory serves me correctly, there is a small know that is for time bake. It has a spot on it opposite the Zero that should say "MAN" OR "MANUAL". The that timer pointer to that position. See if that works.
Please let me know what happened.
Best Regards,
The dumb guru,
Mark

I have a intermatic ej351c indoor wall switch programmable timer that I have tried several time to program an on time for the lights to come on however the lights does come on. I have followed the...


There might be a couple things that are easy to overlook.

Press the button to see if lights come on >>> if light do not turn on with manual override, then light might be burned out or circuit breaker tripped. Sometimes a breaker is tripped but you can't tell by looking at it

1) The timer is used on incandescent bulbs only. I don't know why, but it says no
  • Compact Florescent
  • Energy Saver
  • Flood lights
  • Halogen
  • Mercury Vapor
  • Christmas lights
  • Candelabra bulbs
2) Is the red indicator light ON?
For programs to work, timer has to be in automatic mode and the red indicator light will be ON
The Switch Timer can be used in two modes. manual & automatic
To switch between modes, quickly press the dial twice:
AUTOMATIC MODE: The Switch Timer will turn your lights ON or OFF according to programmed settings. The RED indicator light stays ON when in Automatic Mode.

MANUAL MODE: Programmed settings are inactive, and
the Switch Timer will only turn the light ON or OFF when
you push on the dial.
RED indicator light stays OFF when in Manual mode.

3) setting current time> lets look at the red indicator light while doing this
Move switch lever to OFF-Clear
Move lever to ON >>> red indicator is flashing
Rotate dial to nearest current time (if it's 7:20 pm, rotate dial to 7:30pm)
Press the dial once to set current time > red indicator light goes off
Do not accidentally press dial or it will set the wrong time....ok we know that

4) overlapping programs/
Make a chart of the times you want to program with ON and OFF plus am & pm
Check your chart for overlapping times that tell the timer to do more than one thing

Rotate dial clockwise to the first ON time >> pay attention to am & pm
Press button and first ON time is set
Rotate dial clockwise to the first OFF time >> watch the am and pm
Press button and first OFF time is set
You can have 48 on-off times >>> which seems a lot for a 24 hour repeat timer

5) try the timer with one program

6) If timer still doesn't work, put switch back in and see if lights turn on that way >>> it could be a loose wire suddenly cropped up

Last step >>> timer is no good, you need another one. We tried.

Have Sentry 1250 safe. I have the combo but can't get it to work.


A1 locksmith will tell you.
If your safe doesn't have a key, skip Step 3.
Turn the dial to zero.
Insert your sentry safe key and turn it until the plunger pops out.
Turn the dial to the left (counterclockwise) three times to the first number of the combination (pass the first number of your combination two times, stopping on it the third time).
Turn the dial to the right (clockwise) two times to the second number of the combination (pass your second number once, stopping on it the second time).
Turn the dial to the left to the last number (stop the first time on your last number).
Pull the handle down; cracking sentry safe open.

Bought a Thor Fridge Freezer just over 10 months ago.


Last night put a bowl of water in the freezer section and turned the dial all the way to the right, Bowl is frozen over this morning so I am getting a themometer today and will set it at what other freezer makers recommend and see how it works then. I will try the water trick again and see how well it works.
