Question about Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop

1 Answer

What wrong? First and foremost I am sorry if there is another thread out there somewhere on this subject... I have a computer problem. When I play any games or music, it works fine but every like 45 seconds to a minute, the sound starts to stutter and the video follows suit. Then it clears up and I'm good again. What is wrong, I have already done a system restrore, bought a new sound card, and this problem still presists. any one know what's wrong?

My bobbin thread breaks too much. How do I fix it.

Be sure you are using the correct bobbin for your machine. Even though it appears to fit the bobbin case, if it is the wrong bobbin, it could cause major headaches.

Try a different bobbin. Try different thread.

Also check that the bobbin thread is wound smoothly and turning the correct direction in the bobbin case. Make sure the thread is threaded through the bobbin tension properly.

AVOID old and inexpensive, bargain bin thread!

There could be a nick or burr somewhere that is catching the bobbin thread and breaking it.

Try loosening the bobbin tension a bit. It could be too tight, especially if the bobbin thread is pulling the upper thread down to the underside of the fabric.

There could also be something wrong with the bobbin case itself that may be resolved by trying a new bobbin case (or borrow one from a friend, etc.)

I am using a finesse 356 sewing machine and the thread keeps on breaking off at the needle. What could be the problem?

Could be threaded wrong. Could be tension too tight. Could be a bad needle. Could be bad thread (avoid old thread or bargain bin thread). The fabric, needle, and thread may not be compatible, ie the thread is too large for the needle's eye, could be incorrect thread for the fabric, the fabric may be too coarse and is wearing the thread and causing it to break... There could be a burr or nick somewhere that is catching the thread. The thread could be hanging up somewhere in the thread path on the way from the spool to the needle causing it to break when it reaches the needle.

Bobbin is not catching needle thread resulting in a tangle of thread on underside of fabric

Have you started by pulling the bobbin thread up manually before you start sewing? Your tension is wrong somewhere, could be upper or lower.

..the right needle thread keeps coming out and I

Sounds like you have a tension problem. Have you re-threaded? Check tension discs for bits of broken thread which may cause jamming. The thread must be catching somewhere. Pull it through by hand to see if it is too tight.

My right speaker from my z-2300 stop working.

sounds like a loose connection somewhere inside that particular speaker. You could open it up to check for a loose or separated solder joint. The safe option would be to return to place of purchase and exchange for a new set.
