My frigidare affinity shuts down mid cycle , and has to be restarted many times in order to finish a load of clothes


Remove top of washer by removing screws in back of top. You should see the tech sheet. Use this to retrieve any error codes.
A common problem with these is a bad door switch. (The part the strike goes into. If this is the case you should come up with error code for it.

Satellite PSAGCA-06M01N keeps restarting when i try to upgrade windows


Computer randomly restarts is not something unique happened to you. Sometimes there is a dreadful total crash of the system and sometime it sends different errors, upon restarting nothing happens.

-- First of all disable the auto-restart option from your control panel settings
-- Remove any recently installed maliciously software/add-on or any other application or toolbar.
-- Try to cool down your PC as the overheating due to overuse of computer may result in system freezing and sudden restarting.
-- Update your BIOS.
-- Update the drivers
-- Make it sure the error is not caused by the deficient power supply. You may try to change the power supply.
-- Conduct the registry clean up scan for quick fix of the problem.
-- Remove flashy games and/or untrusted antiviruses/antispywares. Conduct the security scan through the most powerful scanners only.
I would recommend to use a system utility tool like PCFresher to fix windows errors and registry errors. Then try updating hope problem is fixed.

I have an Acer Aspire 6530 running Windows Vista and today it started shutting off at random. When it shuts off the bottom 2/3 of the screen has blue stripes across it, and on the blue is text I cannot...


Good question.

Does the computer feel hot when it shuts off?

Does it always happen at the same exact time?

Can you try booting the computer into Safe Mode? (What Happens?)

First thing I'd try is uninstalling the video adapter driver under device manager and restart the computer.

Let me know what happens!

Sony CRX835E CD-RW drive, Blue screen of Death on inserting CD-R


Bad Norton install. Actually bad Norton. Its causing driver corruption.The fact that it appears only when you insert a cd-r it's just random occurence, it could have happened as well when you would have tried to print something.
Best fix: just get rid of Norton , it's useless anyway. Get a decent antivirus for start. Otherwise uninstall it using the official uninstaller (not by using its uninstaller), run a registry cleaner, install it again using this time a diferent location and hope to gods that this time it won't screw your pc.

Presario desktop windows vista, shuts down unexpectedly


Windows Vista will not install on old computers. If this is your case try installing Windows XP, If this does not work you might want to try Linux (Ubuntu). which will run on almost any old computer with full capabilities.

My computer shuts down at random intervals, most of the time it happens when a larger program or someting with a large grafix demand is running, but their are times when it will shut off when nothing is...


Hi, Random shut down is usually the hard drive. You need to get it tested at a repair shop and ask if it could be repaired or if you will need a new hard drive. If it's not too big of a problem yet, they might be able to do a lowlevel format which will eliminate bad sectors and do a new install. However, if there's too many bad sectors, it might need to be replaced. Good Luck and let me know what happens.
