My aspire 5742z reboots at random times. it does it about 4to5 times in about 3to4 hours. its pretty anoyng couse i lose all my work every time. i only have the machine about 2 monds,maybe youl figure out...


From Microsoft:
Open Event Viewer by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Maintenance, clicking Administrative Tools, and then double-clicking Event Viewer.
If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

under windows logs look for system
in system the look for a message with a red icon, it will tell you why your computer is rebooting

For a computer that new get it repaired under warranty, if it is having problems now, they will get worse the older it gets and more expensive.

For GE- 15117, Mode acts as a controller called "an On or Off override..." "or sets events to Automatic or random" Random = a +/- program shift (that's understandable). You'd think...


I cannot make precise sense of your question.
However I agree, the manual for GE 17117 is not clear.

1) A number of folks are writing in about this particular timer, with same MODE problem as you.
Some folks, the timer skips over auto.
Some folks the timer just doesn't come on.
Facts are facts, some timers are busted on arrival.

But let's look at the problem from three different directions and see if it helps:

2) Steps from manual:
When you finish programming, press clock button to return to current time.
Next set MODE.

Press MODE button and timer enters override ON-OFF. Override reverses whatever program is operating at that moment.
Press MODE button again and timer enters RDM random mode, and lights turn on-off randomly.
Press MODE button again and timer enters AUTO >>> auto is correct setting that lets programs run.
Here's the trick: after setting MODE to auto, press clock button again and current time displays.
If timer will not perform these steps, then timer is suspect

If timer performs these steps, but programs won't work, the timer is suspect or programming is suspect.

3) Check programming for conflicts and overlaps that cause timer not to function 'as expected.'
Some timers skip over conflicting programs, some timers simply stay on, others stay off.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/GE-15117-Manual.pdf

Example of conflict is event1 ON at 7am TU > but event1 OFF at 11pm All-days. Both event1 ON and OFF events must have consistent days >>> so change TU to All-days.
Another example is event1 ON 7am OFF 11pm TU >> but event2 says opposite, or has overlapping times.

I suggest folks make a schedule of programs before starting.
To review and change programs, start with current time showing in display: Press PROG button and scroll through event1 ON, event1 OFF, event2 ON, event2 OFF, etc.
Write down the events and make a chart.
Look for overlaps, and check for days of operation, and make sure each event ON has corresponding event OFF

4) If events are correct, and timer MODE button functions, but timer still doesn't work, the final suspect before calling the timer busted, is circuit problem. Use circuit analyzer on receptacle. Or plug timer into receptacle on different breaker and see if problem persists.

I cannot shutdown my Windows 7 computer. It never shuts off so when I have to restart for an update, it never shuts down completely and just comes back up to the desktop.


Hi there,

Check if a particular program is slowing the machine when you switch on or shut down, e.g. an anti virus program.

Go to Control Panel > All Control Panel Items > Performance Information and Tools > Advanced Tools (in the left pane). On this screen the problem is sometimes shown. If not, click View Performance Details in Event Log (Event Viewer). Events in the 100 series are boot events and I believe those in the 200 series are shut down events. These can be followed up by double-clicking them, then clicking Event Log Online at the bottom.


Hope this initial information helps. Let me know for further instructions.

Thanks.

Keyboard locks randomly after login


Sound like you might have a virus - try running antivirus program - such as Avast or Antivir - which is free.
If that doesn't work, then try doing a System Restore - if that doesn't work, then do a System Recovery complete re-install - but back up your pictures and documents first as you will lose everything and you'll be starting over again fresh.

Instantaneous shutdown of my Toshiba Satallite A105 Laptop


Hi Sam,

What operating system are you using ?

If you remember what time it last randomly shut down on you, use the system event viewer to see what errors were given just before it turned itself off. You can access the event viewer in Windows XP by clicking on the Start button, then click on Run, and in the box that pops up type in "eventvwr" and hit enter.

Click on system on the left hand side to view the log files of the system. Browse down until you find the time when your laptop turned off. Hopefully there is a series of errors there. They should be able to tell you something about why it is doing it.

Hope this helps, feel free to post some of the errors back here if you find any!

Thinkpad R51 Blue screen


First:

does this also happen in safe mode boot. (press F8 just before windows boots). If not then go to your event viewer and check the messages at the specific time,hour messages. for example. computer booted at 23:30. in windows around 23:31:10 and then blue screen. Go to safe mode. and look in the logs what registered at 32:31:10(around this time).

If not possible to boot in safe mode. Try to remove one of the 2 memory dimm(if you have 2). so you boot with 1. maybe 1 of them doesn't work good anymore.
