Question about PC Desktops

Janome MyLock 744D I have been loaned this overlocker and cannot work out how to thread the final loop/eye (before the 'needle') of the right-hand bobbin. The loop/eye is positioned under the footplate. How do I get the thread under there? (I'm accustomed to using an Elna overlocker where you acess that loop?eye by turning the hand wheel. On this machine the needle shaft doesn't come out far enough!) Thanks Elspeth

The 744D I have does not automatically thread. There is a tiny L shaped metal piece that you push toward that back of the machine and it pulls that little eye out so you can see it. When it is threaded, then you pull that little L shaped thing back. I wish I could show you, it's hard to explain since I don't know the technical name for parts!

Threading is simplified by color-coded thread guides and a self-threading lower looper. Simply lay the thread into the guide, flip the switch, and the lower looper is threaded. The guide is automatically returned to its normal position when you turn the balance wheel.

Hope this helps, Please Vote. Thanks and good luck!

What exactly is cash advance?


Money up front as a loan. Most times as a payday / check / car title loan as a short term (er...30 days), high interest rate (er...20%). Never take one. It's a slippery slope

How to thread the bobbin on an Elna 3005. I have lost the instruction book. (Your category does not include sewing machines)


This are the instructions from Wiki for Elna 1500, which is a similar model:
" First, raise the presser foot lever and turn the flywheel towards you to raise the thread take-up lever to its highest point.
Next,, place your spool of thread on the horizontal post and hold in place with the spool cap. You know that little nick in the spool where you tuck your thread so the spool won't unravel? Make sure that nick is pointing to the right.
Now draw your thread to the left and "click" it into the little silver loop. A 1" oval thread guide sits to the left of that silver loop; draw your thread around the left of the thread guide.
Now you're going to loop your thread through the tension discs. You'll see two "cracks" in your machine. First run your thread DOWN through the RIGHT crack, then immediately UP through the LEFT crack.
At the top of the LEFT crack is your silver thread take-up lever. This is probably the trickiest part of threading your machine because the lever is always kind of inside the machine. But you can do it! Pass your thread from RIGHT to LEFT through the back of the loop at the top of the silver lever.
Whew! We're almost there.
Now draw your thread right back down the same crack you pulled it up before. You now have two stationary guides above your needle. Pass it through the thick silver guide and then through the thin silver guide. Both of these moves are kind of a left-to-right motion.
Now thread your needle from FRONT to BACK.
You're done -- well, except for the bobbin.
Hold your bobbin spool above the bobbin case so that it looks like a letter "P" Draw the bobblin thread from RIGHT to LEFT through the small crack in the silver part of the bobbin case, then pull the thread straight toward the back of the machine.
Now turn your flywheel one revolution toward you so that your upper thread picks up the bobbin thread. Now close your bobbin cover, and SEW!
Congratulations! You did it!

Explain the term amortization


The process of paying off a loan through specifically structured periodic payments is known as amortization. Amortized loans are different from other loans due to the way the amount and the structure of each payment is determined.

mortgage payments are a common form of amortized loans, and interestingly enough, both the term mortgage and the termamortization find their meaning in the same root word "mort." This term means to deaden or kill, as in to "kill off" or eliminate the loan a bit at a time, via regular payments.

what you are describing is the blue screen of death, meaning theres a hardware or software problem, try to boot into safe mode and perform a system restore, if that doesn't work use your XP cd, let it load the drivers and the ask it to fix the existing XP installation, anything that you have saved in my documents should be safe and the problem should be solved. If the blue screen reappears then you have a hardware problem

Comes up in the selection of safe modes but nothing works, it loops to the Acer page and uninstall page for a mille-second than starts the loop again


it sound like there is something wrong with your hard drive. it eather has to be reformated and the os put back on there or get a new hard drive. but try this take the hard drive out, hold it about 5 inches off the floor ( flat floor) and drop it flat sometimes the needle gets stuck .then try booting the computer up

thanks
hope this works for you

I have a fairly new Bernina 440 sewing computer machine with embroidery module. While working on an embroidery project, I had a thread break. Fixed it and rethreaded the machine. Now the machine will...


It sounds like something in the controls loop got out of sync and made the thread break semi-permanent; try single-stepping and backscrolling through the stitches, and see if it can't memorize success instead.

   If you can skip that item for now; surely power cycling or resetting the thing, running self-test or updating its firmware can remedy the situation?

Alert chipset heat sink not detected system halted error message


This is a relatively common problem in the Dimension 4600c. The small, fan-less heatsink for the Northbridge chip (a memory/video-to-cpu communications chip) is held down by a spring, which is anchored by two small wire loops soldered to the motherboard at locations marked "HS2". The spring completes an electrical circuit between the two wire loops. The spring puts a substantial force on the minscule bit of solder holding the loops to the motherboard, and was a poor design.

If a loop breaks off, the circuit is broken, which tells the BIOS that the heatsink fell off. To fix this, you need to 1) secure the heatsink to the chip, and 2) reconnect the circuit between the two "HS2" locations on the motherboard. I have sucessfully used this solution. This solution will not necessarly stand up to a lot of abuse if the Dimension's enclosure is frequently opened and closed to replace other components such as RAM and hard disks.

0) unplug the computer.

1a) Recover the heatsink, spring, and loose wire loop. Discard the spring. Get:
- a fresh tube of thermal paste from Radio Shack or other electronics supply store,
- some epoxy,
- a round toothpick,
- about six inches of insulated 14 to 20 gauge solid copper wire,
- electrical solder, flux, and a soldering iron,
- and a box of cotton swabs.

1b) Using pure alcohol and lots of cotton swabs, clean *all* of the existing thermal paste off of the Northbridge chip and the bottom of the heatsink. When both are dry, apply a dab of paste to the center of the Northbridge chip. Use a round toothpick like a kitchen roller to spread the paste evenly across the small raised center square of the chip.

1c) Apply small daps of mixed epoxy just outside of the four corners of the raised center of the Northbridge chip. Place the heatsink onto the Northbridge chip, centering and squaring it as best you can. Press firmly to make good contact with the thermal paste. Allow epoxy to dry.

2a) Firmly seat one or both detached wire loops into their mounting holes at the "HS2" locations. While pressing down on the loop, apply a small dab of epoxy to one end of the loop to secure it to the motherboard. Allow epoxy to dry.

2b) Strip the ends of the copper wire, and bend the wire so that it can reach around (rather than over) the heatsink to the two wire loops. Solder the ends of the wire to each loop. Knowing how to solder is an exercise left to the reader. "Use head main ting": don't drip solder onto the motherboard.

You can now plug in the computer and restart. The BIOS and/or OS may have saved the error state and return a different message about the heatsink issue. You may need to reboot a couple of times to allow the BIOS to notice that the "HS2" circuit is (hopefully) now complete. When you've sucessfully booted the machine, shut it down and gently close the Dimension's enclosure.
