This could be a sign that your laptop is overheating. If you touch the laptop while it is running & you find it too hot, make sure that the fan is running properly & that the air ways are not blocked.
You can blow compressed air into the cooling vents of the fan. If you notice clouds of dust coming out, then it might be a good idea to disassemble the laptop, clean the fan & air ways, & reassemble it back. If the fan has failed & is no longer running, it might need to be replaced.

If none of this solves the problem, or is not the case, then you might have a bad motherboard.

How to bypass prndl sensor

Which part of ignition switch did you replace ? The key an lock cylinder or the electrical part behind the lock cylinder ? What year ,make an model vehicle do you have ? Most all newer vehicles from 1996 on have anti-theft systems . Is there a security light lit on your dash ? These same vehicles have a starter relay in the under hood fuse box that is turned on or energized by the PCM/ECM - engine computer . The switch the mechanic told you about is the transmission range selector or park neutral safety switch. Your best bet , rather then replacing parts is to take it to a ASE certified repair facility .

When the transmission is cold, when put in reverse, there is some hesitation and it goes in hard.

Hello, You may just need to have fresh fluid and have the internal filter cleaned or replaced. There can also be a problem with the Cold start sequence for the engine. The Cold start sequence keeps the engine idle higher for a short time like the old choke system.

If your idle is slower when cold, it will take longer for the fluid to move to where it needs to be. The hesitation and hard shift can be the fluid trying to flow when it is thick. Yet the hesitation is also the thing carbureted engines would do when the choke was not working.

The other thing you can do is have the Electronics analyzed to see if the shift solenoids in the transmission are working properly, but this will take a Dealer or better transmission shop to have the tools and do the testing. Your cheapest route is fresh fluid and a clean filter and go from there.

I hope my solution is very helpful to you.

Cold water fill is very slow and makes strange sound

check with the plumbing work if that is fine then better take it to the dealer to change the inlet valve. attempting to change by yourself can cause other complications.

1999 nissan quest will start when cold then try to take off then die wont start

Check your crank sensor. You might have an oil leak that is getting inside the sensor which is the reason why it wont start when hot. When oil is cold, its thicker so it leaks slower. Have a mech check it out.

Water flow slow on rinse cycle

the rinse cycle is almost always slower because it is only using cold water - if you try cold wash, cold rinse, they should be the same flow- cold is used for rinse because it reduces suds better
