Open one browser and let the computer idle.

Right click on blue portion of the task bar.

Click on Task Manager

Look at application tab to see is there any application running beside your browser.

Performance tab will give you a good idea is what's going on.

Example: I got one bowser and 4 internet windows running and I am using 3% of the cpu processing power.

CCleaner.exe is one of the best cleaner out there.

BE CAREFUL when you get into the site because there are lot of advertiser on their web page.

I recommend you to wait for a friend who is experience with computer to be around to download and ran CCLEANER program.

I got a 3.5mm audio splitter to play my phone on my pioneer vsx-522k no sound what's up


Make sure that the volume on your phone is not turned down all the way. You should turn the volume up more than probably half though otherwise you may over-drive the amp in the receiver causing it to shut down

Why does slotomania shut down my computer?


Does it shut down the computer completely or it just restarts it?

This might be caused by overheating. Are there any signs of overheating in the computer? or outdated video driver. Try updating your video driver. You can also install Radarsync to automate the computer's updating mechanism.

I hope this helps!

I have a gateway nv79u and it wont stay on for more than 30 mins. It keeps shutting off with error code 41 kernal-power.


Hi Michael,

Kernel Power - Error Code 41 often times caused by conflicting drivers. If you are trying to play a game or watching videos then the computer suddenly turns off, you must first check the following:

1. Open Device Manager (click Start > type Device Manager) and go to Sound, Video, and Game Controllers and see you have two audio drivers installed and disable one at a time and see if it fixes the issue.

2. Boot into Safe mode (press F8 continuously upon boot up) and see if the computer still shuts down there. (If it doesn't try disabling start-up items using this guide

3. If you're pop-up error messages like "System services cannot be started" upon boot-up, you're operating system is corrupted and must be restored to default settings. (you need to press F11 upon boot up - remember to backup your important files)

3. If Step 2 above is true, check if the computer is overheating. If it does, the computer needs to be serviced. Contact gateway support at 1-800-846-2000.


Cheers.

During play yellow lite comes on where green lite is and station shuts down even on internet play wont stay on for more than 3 minutes or so..


Does the lights blink red? If so, You have the infamous YLOD, aka. Yellow Light of Death. (now it comes back on, eventually it won't) This is the number 1 cause of pS3's dying. It is an overheating issue linked to your CPU and GPU (the processor chips) You will need to find a local PS3 repair shop who can repair this. Do not try to attempt repairs seen on the internet yourself as some would suggest.You could make things much worse and render the unit totally unresponsive. The repair process takes about 3 hours.

I play my Wii for about 15 minutes and then it just shuts off. I have to unplug and plug back in the AC adapter to get it work again. When I start playing again, the problem happens again.


Sounds like classic computer problem with overheating. I know there is a stand with a built in fan for the Wii. But the normal stand should be enough. Have u dusted around you Wii? Everything with cooling has some amount of dust that finds it way into the machine. And all pc and consoles shut down when overheating, as a protective measure. Otherwise stuff would melt inside.

Can't get Audio tracks to play on any myspace page


I'm wondering if you can't play .mp3, .wav or other audio files on your computer, or just Internet Explorer, or just specifically myspace.

First try: Open Internet Explorer. Select Tools from the Menu list. (If you do not have a menu list, right click the gray area below the url bar and select menu bar from the drop down list)
Select Internet Options from the Tools Menu. Select the Advanced Tab. Scroll down to the Multi-Media heading. Make sure that "Play sounds in web pages" is checked. Close Internet Explorer, re open and test.

Hey,

the laptop is overheating and shuts down to prevent hardware failure. Use canned air to blow dust out from the fans that may improve it a little.

When we try to play dvd the audio/video vsx-1017txv-k turns off


If you remove the video and audio inputs to the reciever and select dvd does it still shut down? You may have a bad rca jack that is shorted and it is causing the reciever to go into protective shut down. You can try moving the input to anothe input say aux in or vcr and see if it does the same. If it does try changing your rca jacks. You can also try just the video in and see if it does not shut down or one of the audio inputs one at a time,you may be able to isolate the problem. Always check you have the gozintos and goesouttos in the right places. what happens if you disconnect the jacks completly does it stay on and if it does do the one at a time input yellow for video white next for left channel then red for right channel audio. Hope this helps

NP9890 shut down


If it is an overheating problem try turning the laptop off, turning it over and placing a vacum on the fan grill on the bottom. Many laptops get a dirt buildup internally and this will sometimes suck out the dirt.
