Sony PCG-F340 keeps shutting down

Hi, I have the above model that keeps shutting down within 15 seconds of it loading the windows desktop (win98). It also keeps flashing the LED nearest the number 1 on the battery indicator.  This notebook doesn't appear to want to run of the battery at all (it doesn't seem to hold a charge). The shutting down problem is still happening when plugged into the mains. It doesn't do it if it's booted in safe mode though. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thomas. hi the problem i am having is, the machine shut's down whenever i move it slightly, or hit a key and i am having serious trouble starting it. here's hoping Bob

Old Sony laptops do this when the battery is dead, or the charging system is below required voltage. A battery with a dead cell (which this sounds like) can damage your external PSU and internal battery/power regulator circuit. Remove the battery (shut down and disconnect PSU first). You can run the laptop forever, without the battery, if you cannot find a battery replacement, or do not like the cost. Obviously, though, the laptop will not run at all without the AC/PSU connected when the battery is removed.

Hi my computer wont start up and making beeping sound


Hi,

First of all you didnt mention how it gets shut down. So i can say 2 possible ways in which system gets shut down.

First thing is that when you boot windows it will get shut down constantly

Second thing is that it wont load windows. TO be more specific CPU wont get On.

So what you need to do is that If the problem is with the first case you need to see the windows need to be formatted and you can proceed successfully

IF the problem is with the second case you need to get repair the SMPS or you need to see the CPU interior circuits.

I hope it helps.

Thanks.

2002 bmw 530i key does not (remotely) unlock doors or trunk but they work fine manually.


Unlock vehicle. Enter vehicle. Close driver's door. Switch ignition ON and OFF. Remove ignition key. Press and hold unlock button. Press lock button briefly 3 times within 10 seconds keeping unlock button depressed. Release unlock button. Some models: LED flashes slowly for 10 seconds. Some models: Central locking system locks and unlocks rapidly to indicate correct programming. Repeat above procedure if central locking system does not work and LED does not flash or LED flashes continuously.

Can't reboot iMac and disc is stuck in the slot loading drive


Shut down the mac by holding in the power button for about 10 seconds.
Is the CD a system CD or something else?
If it's a system CD restart the mac and hold down the letter C on the keyboard. after about 30 seconds the mac should boot up into installation mode. If it does, click on the language then then at the next page go up to the menu bar and locate Utilities and disk utility. Run the disk repair then try and restart. (The flashing ? means that the computer cannot find a start-up drive with a valid system on it. The repair routine can sometimes fix that - it doesn't always though.)
If it's not a system CD and you obviously need to get it out before you can do anything else - restart the mac but this time instead of holding down the C key, hold down the click on the mouse. It takes 10 to 15 seconds (sometimes longer) but it will force the computer to eject t the CD.

HP530 shuts down within 15 seconds as it loads XP


Probabpy an XP problem, start XP in safe mode (press F8) as it is loading.
If it runs then it is probably a driver problem. Try restarting in the last good configuration. Keep posting until the problem is resolved.

Can't access desktop, windows won't load so pc won't shut down


Hold th epower button down on your tower for about 5-10 seconds and it should shut off. Then you can turn it back on. If that doesnt shut it down you can always pull the power cord.

I see two screens on my desktop.


You are using a screen resolution that is not supported by your monitor. Start the computer in safe mode and open display properties. What ever resolution and color depth is (usually 640x480 and 16 colors), click OK button. Restart the computer. Go to display properties and increase the color depth to the maximum value. Set the resolution to 800x600. Restart the machine. Do you see double screens? No? Great! Now try increasing the resolution to the next level. (1024x768). When you click 'apply' you will be give 15 seconds to say it is OK. So if you see double screens, do not click anything. Display will revert to 800x600 resolution (and you will see only a single screen!)

I have a Imation pocket flash drive and I'm trying to copy music files from my old computer (Windows 98) to my flash drive and I keep getting error message "unable to write". Any suggestions?


You need a driver for the flash drive to work in Win98. You can download it here:

http://driverscollection.com/?file_cid=393499707811d1cd9a955402f23 - if your win98 computer is connected to the internet use it to download the file, then your flash drive will work
