Depending on the make and model it probably requires a power supply repair. Replace all bulging capacitors with identical types and values.

hi I'm mhel, your 1st problem was your laptop is overheating, you may try to install a back case blower, which you can find anywhere. and 2nd your laptop doesn't show anything right? I guess you install your RAM in a bad way, try to eject your RAM and put it back again it should the trick. and next time when you tear apart your laptop get some anti-static case to protect your harware. good luck with that..e-mail me if this works...

The laptop must be taken apart and cleaned, remove fan and heatsink get a can of compressed air attach straw, now give a good few blasts to the heatsink fins to remove the dirt including fan, Next get rubbing alcohol and clean the old thermal paste from the processor and heatsink, when finished apply fresh thermal compound to both items and assemble.

My TV turns it self off after a few hour s of viewing


The most common problem that causes shut down after few hours is overheating. Overheating however does not necessarily occurr because a faun is broken or because a thermistor is defective. A devective IC may fail and overheat on its own. The fault won't be even called overheating in some case.

The TV must be taken apart and tested by a technician.

Common faults to be tested are:

Fans and tehrmistors.
Convergence ICs.
There are also a couple of test point on main controller board to be tested.

Over heating

This laptop is probably due for a deep cleaning. There is probably a dust build-up on the fan intake assembly that is not letting enough cool air into the laptop. You can try spraying it with compressed air, but it should be taken apart and cleaned.

I have a Viore RPT50V24DX/SMS TV, That just turns off after a few minutes. When it's on it's nearly perfect, but then it quits. The cooling fan is running, and there's not much dust inside. Any Ideas?

A: Check clearances for proper ventilation, as overheating can occur even with the fans running. B: If A checks out then replace the lamp as it is in failure mode. They do not usually just all of a sudden fail. They give symptoms such as this.

Ps3 is freezing after 10-15 min have taken mach. apart and cleaned, seems as if fan is running

Try new heatsink paste on the CPU and GPU. Sounds like you are having a heat problem. Check how hot the power supply box is getting as i have replaced a few that got extremely hot and would make the PS3 shutdown, no video, frozen screen ect. If it is the power supply there are a few places you can purchase them online. Good Luck.

Over heating

fan filter is probably plugged with dust, fan blades are also probably covered, unit will have to be taken apart and cleaned, lamp is overheating, probably a good idea to replace that lamp or at least order a new one and keep it for when it does finally die out, good luck with it, hope this helps
