Try taking the battery out and only hooking up the AC Adapter. If that doesn't do it then try hooking the laptop up to a different power outlet.

You can also try another known working AC Adapter as well to make sure the original is not losing power.

Try unseating and reseating the memory. Try different known working memory if you can, just to rule out bad memory in the laptop.

Unseat and reseat the hard drive and dvd drive as well, this will make sure there is no bad connections to the motherboard.

If these steps don't fix it then that means the motherboard is bad and it would need to be replaced.

What causes my dryer to stop after 20 minutes?

Sounds like a possible motor over heating. The main motor has a heat safety built in that shuts it off if it gets too hot. It will restart once it cools off some. Over heating could be from excessive lint around the motor or even from a blocked vent pipe. All you can do is clean it well and check again. If it still shuts off the motor will need replaced.

When I play a video on my laptop computer, it shuts down after a few minutes. Why?

No idea, But try to fine a (freeware) motherboard monitor program and install that. Then check what happens with the temperature on the main board and with the processor. When something is getting to warm in a short time, perhaps the ventilator(s) need to be cleaned or even the cooling past on the processor needs replacement. Don't start changing things, till you know for sure what is wrong.

Burping the cooling system

start the car let it run 4-5 minutes. shut it off , let it set 5 minutes check level, sometimes it takes 10 -15 time to get it to cycle all the air. even a short trip around the block a few times and always making sure to fill the reservoir. the new closed systems are a pain to get all the air out. also remember to have the heater on in full heat position to allow the system to circulate through the whole cooling system.

Microwave keeps shutting off

The magnetron is overheating, tripping the thermostat, which shuts off all power until it cools down.

This is usually caused by a blocked air vent, failed internal cooling fan, or failing magnetron.

If it's out of warranty, I'm sure you'll find it's uneconomical to repair, even if you could get parts for this brand.

Good luck.

Cooling fan runs continuasly even with ignition is no switched on

Even when the key is off with the engine cool after a few minutes? Or just a few minutes after it is turned off with the key?

Check or change your thermostat and flush the radiator with the heater running on hot as it can be. Can you see inside the radiator? If you can is the water flowing good? If it is not after you change you thermostat and it still runs hot then it is your water pump. Is it running hot?

Please answer the questions before you rate this.

My honeywell heater was working one minute and not working the next.

HI I have this heater and no manual , and I was doing research on the internet and found that these haeters have an automatic shut off if it gets too hot and it wont come back on for a while until it is cooled down. I just unplug mine awhile or turn it off and then it comes back on when it cools down.
