Dimension 2400 Turns Itself Off

My 2400 turns itself off and trys to reboot itself, sometimes it works and other times I have to turn it off using the button. This can happen any time within the first hour of use or upto over four hours of being on. I only use this system for e-mail, internet and playing music through media player. I recently installed a new memory hoping this would cure the problem but no luck.

    I have run the Hard Drive Diagnostic and no error reports came back.

    I have recently reinstalled the old memory card, which I thought was faulty, along with the new one so my RAM has now doubled to 1g. Everything has been fine since then so I am keeping my fingers crossed.

    Thanks for your help.

I think you might have a failing hard drive. if you go into the Boot menu by pressing F12 while it is booting up you will see an option named Hard Drive Diagnostic. This is what you want to run. If it returns an error code of 7 then the drive is most likely failing or failed.

My Phillips 42PF7320/79 Flat Panel TV won't turn on, screen stays black but green pwr light is on, after a lil while the green light flashes a couple of times then goes off itself completely

This idea may be worth a try. Look at the buttons on your remote. If you see a button that is marked "TV" give that button a push and then give the "Power" button a push. Wait for a while! sometimes this takes a while to turn the TV on or off. You may have to do this a couple of times depending if the power was off or on when you started doing this. If you started with the set off, sometimes it takes a while for the set to turn on.
