    My Sansa also overheated and wouldn't turn on for about 50 minutes. When it finally did turn on, the battery was dead. It is now recharged and working. I have had my Sansa e250 for about a week, and it has the new firmware installed.

Grand prix wont start after driving 30-40 miles

Could be ignition or fuel.
You would check for fuel pressure when it fails to start. The fuel pump or pump relay could be failing when hot.
Same thing with the coils and ignition module.

I installed a new battery into my HP G60 233NR. However sometimes when i power on my computer i get a black screen. Sumtimes after sitting for awhile it will boot. Other times I have to unplug the battery,...

I have a G62 that I've taken apart a couple times to fix issues. Right now the video card has an issue with turning on. I can get it to work by turning the brightness down before I shut it down; it will boot normally usually. If not, I can flip the screen open and closed a few times and it will finally get going. It's a backlight powerup problem that I haven't the patience to sort out. The battery has nothing to do with it, except it diddles the voltage a bit and might get the display working. I can't see the bootup screen, though; if I want to change anything, I have to connect an external monitor.

I usually blow the dust out of it with an air compressor every few months (I use it rarely). Otherwise the heat sink and fan cruds up with dirt and overheats.

I like the PC even though it's 6 years old. It runs all distros of Linux nicely. Mint, openSuSE, Ubuntu, Bodhi, Puppy, Manjaro.

When I tried to turn on my tv it made an odd noise, turned off and would not turn back on, even though it worked just fine about 10 minutes before I tried to turn it on again. Now it won't turn back on,...


A common problem for these is bad capacitors in the power supply, Remove the back from your Tv and look at the power supply on the left hand side.

You will see roughly around 9 x capacitors that are bulged / domed shaped on top usually these are valued at 3300uf 10V any that have bulged or leaked a brown like substance should be changed.
This will cure the problem as they overheat being sat next to a heatsink that gets very hot!
Try and change them for the same 3300uf but a higher voltage.
Hope this helps

Overheats wont turn on? is it dead for good?

Thats weird, they use flash memory so it shouldn't heat up...but you obviously have an internal electrical problem so I say bring it back or get it repaired.
