U may have a problem with the display or....
Check the power settings in the control panel to make sure it is not set to blank, turn-off or put to sleep the display after one hour. Also when U reboot, goto the bios (F2 or del key) and check the power options there for the same things. If all looks good, have a repair shop check the display.

When I am downloading a film...I leave my PC on but when I go back to it after about half an hour it has switched itself off stoopping my download can you help please ty mike


There is little info on your problem but I think you mean the screen went black while downloading a film. Normally computer monitors turn themselves off (dormant) to save energy and the life of the monitor's screen if not used for 10 or 30 minutes, depending on the settings, but the download just keeps going. Mine is set to 10 minutes. All you have to do is disturb the Mouse and see if the monitor screen switches itself on. There is another power saving option, and that is the Computer itself. If the computer is not used for one hour, it too goes dormant, but can also be set to switch itself completely off after the download is completed. However, if a computer is left on for over an hour, it can switch itself off to save energy and the computer's own wear and tear. It all depends on the computer hardware and the settings. If it is hardware controlled, then it may or may not switch itself off but it still goes dormant. Or it can be set to whatever you wish it to do, stay on all the time, go dormant after a set time or switch off if there is no prolonged activity.

My Acer z5600 just shuts off while I'm doing something without any notice.I gets very hot at the top of the screen and then shuts off without warning.The screen just goes black and I can not turn


Your processor is overheating. Or the fan for the CPU is dead or the way to eject the warm air is blocked. Try to work with your laptop on a table, if the problem persists, is the fan other way you have to work everytime on the table.

My ASUS EEE PC900 shuts off about a minute after it is switched on. This happens even if the battery is full. Could it be caused by a virus or a hardware problem? Thanks.


Try hoovering around all the air holes in the case, sometimes a lot of dust builds up as the fan sucks air in and with the hot weather we have been having the fans have had to work hard. It sounds like it is overheating. My other half's did the same a few weeks ago ,
Hopefully this helps, if not, please give more clarification, how long has it been doing this, have you installed new software or hardware before the problem started etc.

My Gateway CX200 Laptop monitor is getting darker with a pinkish hue to it. is it my LCD display or the inverter chip or what?


Most likey, bad news im affraid, its the screen just going bad. Usually theres nothing that can be done. You can try reseating the ribbon cable and see if that improves it, but most likely it wont, they usually have only so many operating hours before the crystals or plasma goes out, depending which it is. Plasma usually goes out quicker than LCD.

Try finding a replacement on Ebay or online somewhere.

Good luck.

P.S. im asuming of course that you know a little about what you are doing and it isnt something like the display settings or contrast.

My acer laptop keys are sticking and to hard to push down. I need to replace them how do I do that?


no they don't need replacing they just need cleaning, you can remove the panel that goes accross the top of the keyboard (above the F keys) if you remove this panel you can remove the keyboard too, it is connect to the laptop with a ribbon cable that you can remove. when the keyboard is free all you have to do is run it under warm water (not hot) and clean the keys gently with washing up liqiud that you use for the dishes, keep on running warm water on it until the keys are free (you may have to repeat this process if the sticking persists) Now for the important part, you have to leave the keyboard to dry for at least 24-48 hours in a warm dry room before you can put it back in, press on the keys periodically to make sure they are free

Lines going across picture on plasma screen


Try connecting another screen (any other screen, doesn't have to be plasma) or try connecting the screen with the problem to another machine. Either way you'll eliminate one piece of hardware. Either the lines will still be there on the screen, in which case the screen is faulty and needs repairing, or they won't be in which case the problem most likely lies in the display card.
