Hi I have a 2004 Holden Barina CD 5 speed Manual. I am having trouble getting into First gear and changing up and down into second gear. The motor is running well, have car regularly serviced and this...


Hi threre.
Have no idea about the cost but check the oil in the gearbox and also make sure you put the right oil grade in. If the oil level is right you might have a problem with the syncro. The cost depends on the damage. Good luck

It will freeze in the middle of game play a some games not play


I believe your device is overheating, you need to make sure that the Dreamcast is well ventilated, don't set it on a carpet or enclosure. BLow any dust from the unit, pull the Dreamcast out of whatever nook it is sitting in, and set it on a flat surface like a hard cover book, etc. See if your issues resolve themselves.

Freezing problem with Games


The Dreamcast is no longer supported because it was to easy to copy the games, but there are still a loyal few who keep the scene alive. I have no idea how much you want to put into fixing the problem, but the only way to fix your problem is flashing the Dreamcast BIOS.

The Dreamcast is basically a computer; with the right programming you can do anything; and having a Dreamcast Keyboard is nice.

Sega Dreamcast console problem


First off, NEVER store a game console on top of a subwoofer. It is like a giant magnet, and electronic devices do not handle magnetics. I don't think i've ever heard of a VGA box, Sega brand or not, killing a console. Millions use aftermarket AV cables and adaptors on all consoles without problem. I think it likely died from being on top of the sub. Relocate it and you should be fine. Running it for a few hours isnt likely either unless you had the vents entirely blocked.
To the guest who's drive isnt spinning, I would say your drive motor has burnt out. This doesn't indicate a defect in Dreamcasts, per se, it just means bad luck or excessive dust which killed it. Either buy a different Dreamcast or see if you can find a drive replacement.
Hope this helps.

Dreamcast Loading problem


you can get disks relayered at game stores.
there was a long period where this happened to me.
some games worked for a while, some didnt.
its the dreamcast.
you might wanna get anew power cable or just clear out the dust because that is the main problem with the dreamcast.
try playing with the console upside down
it sounds crazy but it worked for me.

My dreamcast randomly resets itself!


Its been a while since i've owned a dreamcast.My suggestion wouild be to make sure the parts on the inside are clean.Game consoles are known to collect a lot of dust over a long period of time.I would wipe it down with acohol, since it drys fast and leaves no residue.Your reset button might not be getting a connection.
