The oven runs too hot...even at lower temps

If the oven is in temp runaway and just gets hotter and hotter, always on, then there is a failed component. If the temp is just somewhat hotter but is still being controlled then there is a user temp offset procedure to calibrate the oven temp. See your user manual. If a failed component it can be several things from a oven temp probe to the oven controller. There are electrical checks to determine which including reading the resistance of the temp probe at a known oven temp and checking this with a oven probe temp vs resistance chart.

My VAIO laptop freezes after a few minutes and I have to remove the battery and reboot. Help! Thanks

This seems to be a common problem with laptops over a couple of years old. Dust gets trapped in the copper fins and the fan of the CPU heatsink and reduces the efficiency of the cooling, which results in regular power off's by the laptop as it gets over it's upper temperature setting. The fix is relatively easy, just remove the heatsink unit, blow it clean with compressed air, clean the old CPU heatsink paste off with isopropyl alcohol (IPA) and spray a thin film of heatsink paste on the CPU.

Power loss after 2 seconds from booting up.

Best solution I can think of is Step by Step

Remove those items again and Step by Step, 1 by 1 install each item.

If each item installs ok one by one, then leave in one item at a time. Slow process yes, but you might find which item is causing the conflict.

If you install smething an the machine fails Remove it and the Item before it, then install the Item that failed and try it again.

If it fails then it could be the item not the PSU.

If it fails because of all the items... Then you may need to upgrade your PSU

Need to know cooking time and temp for a 7lb pork

You can assume 1.5 to 2 hours per pound at 225. If pulling take the internal temp of the meat to 190-200 with a digital probe. Do not let the probe touch the bone.

I hope this helps.

I just bought a new motherboard; basically new everything, well on my old motherboard there was a CPU and on this newer better motherboard there is not a CPU. Do I need to got one? What is a CPU exactly?

first, make sure that the new mother board support the old Processors, ask the M.Board supplier about it (or google it) , and make sure you know the old processors type.If you wasn't really sure, just remove the old Processor from old M.Board, then check for the ID (such as Pentium 4, Pentium D, etc ) on top of the processor.

If the new M.Board support the Processors, then you can re use the old processors, if don't, then you don't have a choice, buy the new one that match with the new M.Board specifications.

Hope you understand.

Computer won't turn on

check that the switch on the power supply has not been accidentally bumped.

It should be on the - side... not the o side.

There could be a variety of other problems including the power switch.

Possible reasons a PC will not power up:

Failed Power Button.
Power strip breaker tripped - are there other items plugged in that work?
Failed memory Module.
Failed CPU.
Failed CPU Cooling fan.
Failed power supply.

You will need to test each item with a Digital Multi Meter (DMM) and verify 12VDC at each item. CPU and Memory can only be tested externally by a shop with a reader.

Cpu fan noisy/chip fan fail error messages


Yes. This sounds like a fan issue. The noise often comes from bearings failing within the fan. Also, a failing bearing can make things harder on the motor as it brings the fan up to speed. This is likely the reason that you see increased warnings during the fan speed check while booting because it comes to speed more slowly as bearing wear increases.

I give this a 90% chance that your CPU fan is causing the issue. Since a decent CPU fan will cost you ~$20 online, it's not much out of your pocket if you happen to uncover another culprit.

I'll keep an eye on this post. Let me know how things go.

Cpu fan noisy /chip fan fail

You must buy a new CPU Fan. You can get them HERE or a zillion other places on the Internet. You need a Socket 939 type fan that will handle your cpu speed. If you need help installing it, it may be in the manual. You can read the manual by clicking on the picture of your MB at the top of this post and then scrolling down.

Hope that fixed ya...
