Usually, this is a case of overheating of the processor or other component. I would get a few cans of compressed air you get at an office supply store and clean all the compartments out as well as paying close attention to the fan grills and vents, blow all the hair, dust and debris out and clear the cooling fins. If it has been running for a long time with this clogged up grills it may have overheated and dried out the thermal grease on the processor and heatsink, if this is the case, the heatsink will need to be pulled and new thermal grease applied so that the components can "bleed" off heat.

Camera comes on. screen shows OPTIO AND AT BOTTOM V1.01 THATS ALL- none of the funtions work. camera won't shut offf. have to open battery cover to shut off.

If you can get into the menu system, find "reset" in the set-up menu. If not, remove the card and every button....leave it alone for 20 minutes...insert the card and then the battery...turn it on.....this is called a "hard reset" and sometimes works.

Removed/charged @ reinstalled battery, security light & security system won't shut off,key won't start car or even turn over

Because you disconnected the battery you have set the security system on and it will have to be reset. Try putting the key in and leaving it in the on position for 20-30 minutes, shutting truck off and then try restarting. Short of that you may have to call the dealer.

Car wont start

I think you have a bad fuseable link. Also,
I suspect your alternator is not charging your battery.

You have power with the new one, and it ran for the 20 minutes on your old battery. There also may be a
starter relay unit under the hood.

Batteries last only 20 minutes?

NiMH batteries work on less voltage than Alkaline batteries, so the unit thinks the batteries are low when they are just the wrong type, put Alkaline batteries in {and turn off the backlight if possible} and you will get your 8 hours of use.

My new sony notebook is not detecting the battery.

First, try shutting down the computer, remove the battery for about 10 minutes, make sure the battery compartment is clean, put battery back in, and restart with ac plug not plugged in. If that doesn't work, I would try flashing your BIOS.
