Sounds like the heat exchanger is clogged. Try using canned air blowing in both the air intake and exhaust to unclog the heatsink and also make sure the system has the most current BIOS version.

Freezer not cooling


The clicking you are hearing is probably the compressor trying to run but shuts down after the minute. If your refrigerator has a fan cooling the compressor make sure if is running and the coils are not blocked with lint. A warm compressor is a good sign a hot one is not. The compressor start device or relay could be causing the problem.

Computer Randomly Cuts off


processor overheating. When it gets too hot it automatically shuts your pc down and boots it back up. Even if the fan is running, it could not be supplying enough cool air anymore.

I have a eu3000 overload safety shuts it down at about 1100 watts


Can you verify the amp draw on the output? This gen should handle 25 amps continuous. I wonder if you actually have a bit more that 9 amps? It would be nice to check the frequency and volts too...A Fluke multi-meter can read these values.

Laptop running Vista gets 'blue screen' and shuts itself down


This type of problem happens a lot. Usually its associated with heat and dirt(dust). A good cleaning will increase your air flow and probably fix your problem.

Either way you MUST see whats happening inside...it can certainly be insects clogging critical areas...I've seen it before.

Computer Shuts down


Well your processor may be damaged..

dont worry may be it is not damaged so what do you do is that open the cover of your computer.... Then start it and keep the cover opened making sure that you can see the processor fan running...

See that if the processor fan is running...
then with the help of a torch see that may be the fan is being restricted or it is moving slowly.

this slowness of the fan heats up the processor and makes it shut down you PC

if the is running slowly take out the fan using the user guide of the processor and then lubricate it with motor oil.

it IT Does not work then there is a problem with your processor so please check by placeing another supportive processor and check it!
