This isnt for me a friend is having trouble with his lap computer shutting down why


Tell your friend,

A) The term 'Laptop' is really a misnomer.

If the laptop's air intake duct is on the bottom of the laptop, it should Not be set on a persons lap, a bed, couch, or directly on a carpet floor.

This blocks the air intake duct, and cause the laptop to overheat.


B) Any computer, desktop, or laptop, uses air to cool the hardware components inside the computer.

The fan that draws the air into the computer, also draws in 'foreign debris'.
Dust, dirt, hair, food crumbs, you name it.

Especially with a laptop, and even more specifically a laptop with it's air intake duct on the bottom.

(Some laptop designs have the air intake duct on the side of the laptop. They still draw in 'foreign debris')

The cooling system of a laptop is it's small fan, a finned Heatsink, and a Cooling Tube.

When these hardware components get clogged with the aforementioned foreign debris, the cooling capacity drops tremendously.

If the Processor overheats it turns off. (BIOS turns it off)
A Processor has a thermal limit. A certain operating temperature it can reach, and no more, or it turns off.

This is a Fail Safe feature to keep the Processor from burning up.

No Processor operating, No computer.

Laptop operating, have your friend quickly find where the air is drawn in.
This is the air intake duct.

ALL power removed from the laptop, AC adapter (Charger) and Battery, use a can of compressed air for computers, and clean the air intake duct.

Insert the provided plastic 'straw' into the nozzle of the can of air.
Break the plastic lock tab off of the top of the nozzle.

Laptop closed, on a table, and on edge.
Hold the laptop with one hand, and the can of air with the other hand.

Bring the straw close to the grille of the air intake duct, and use Short Bursts of air.
Squeeze the trigger in all the way, then let go quickly.

You do Not want to spin the fan inside too fast.
The fan is only designed to spin so fast.
Spinning the fan faster than it was designed for can lead to premature failure of the fan's bearings.

Once your friend is satisfied that the air intake duct is cleaned out, sit the laptop down with one side propped up on a book.

You are not supposed to tilt the can of air when using it. Doing so will let some of the propellant come out.

It is inevitable that the can will be tilted when trying to do a good job.
The laptop is propped up so the propellant can have time to dry out.
Around 5 minutes should be good.

Set the laptop down off of the book, plug the Battery back in, then the AC adapter.
Wait 1 minute, then turn the laptop on.

If this procedure leads to no avail, then it is time to take it to a professional computer repair shop.
The tech will open the laptop up, and physically remove 'foreign debris' that the can of air could not remove.

There are some laptops that have a real poor cooling system design.
For these types of laptops they need an additional cooling source.

Tell your friend they have to sit there with a fan, and wave it at the laptop.

NO JUST KIDDING!

Tell your friend that they may wish to try a Cooling Pad.

These are examples of a laptop Cooling Pad,

If the above search link doesn't work, here is one example of a Cooling Pad,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4242568&CatId=3486


If your friend feels technically inclined, I may be able to find a free Service Manual online, that states how to disassemble the laptop.

This way your friend can do the heavy cleaning themselves, and save money.
I would need to know the laptop manufacturers name, and Model Number. Bottom of the laptop.

Regards,
joecoolvette

When i plug up my ipod the computer recognizes it but my windows media player isnt picking up.


Hi ,

There can be a compatibility issue or the version for windows media player that you have needs to be upgraded so you can download the latest windows media player 7 even if that does not work then it means that the media player is not working rite and to correct it media player needs to be uninstalled and reinstalled and only a recovery can do that as it came with the Windows so the alternative is please download VLC MEDIA PLAYER which is better than the windows media player and it supports all type of file formats.

all the best

My sgc2909 profile editor doesn't work. even when used with word


Its not the controller, its the game... or more specifically any recent PC game Microsoft tried to advertise its Xbox controller in. I bought the same controller you did, and ran into the same problem for GTA IV, another game that claims to have game pad support but if it doesn't see you plug in an Xbox controller, there is a good chance you will be unable to play with that game pad due to controls being messed up. The controller was fine though but I instantly assumed it was broken.

Search for any game microsoft tried to promote their Xbox/360 controller with along with the words "problem" or "gamepad" or something similar, and you'll see that we are very much not alone. Always the same kinds of symptoms like buttons being opposite of how they should be or one of the sticks getting "stuck" in one direction for no reason so the camera is staring straight up or down or some other annoyance.

There are fixes for some of the games which aren't hard but annoying. You have to go into the game's input.ini configuration and figure out which control is repsonsible for the button(s) on your controller which are acting up. Then try to reverse it by changing 'right' to the word 'left' or turning a negative value into a positive one.

These 'bugs' will take the developers a very long time to put out a fix if they every do. Calling tech support will usually have them try to convince you your controller is broken and they recommend an Xbox controller to play. I can't see how this isn't being done on purpose with how long its been happening and how the same company and their controllers always magically dodge the bullet when it comes to affected game pads.

Its very unethical purposely make a product cause problems in a game you claim supports "gamepads" in general. The worst part about it is that its done in a way to trick consumers into believing they have a broken product when nothings wrong with it, just to push them into buying yours. Does microsoft really need money to the point they resort to this?

Anyway, sorry to rant. If you don't find any guides to fix your game through the ini file, you could look into something like SPADE which lets you disguise your controller so the game thinks its an Xbox controller and *gasp* wow, it suddenly plays bug free, amazing! It must be because Xbox controllers are just so awesome that just dressing a different controller will heal it, right?

... greedy corporate *bleeeeeep*

Here is a list of games on the "Games for Windows" label for anyone who wants see if those happen to have controller issues too: http://www.giantbomb.com/pc-games-with-xbox-360-controller-support/92-2465/

How to use gamepads with pc games


There are two types of gamepads you can connect to your computer. One is the game port on the sound card and the other is through USB port. Either way once you plug it into your computer you need to go to control panel and configure your device. Click on Switch to Classic View first if option is avaliable. Then double click on Game Controllers. Then you have two options, if a usb device has being detected then you will be able toclick on properties and configure the device. If not, you will have to click on add and select from a list of gamepads and select the one closets to your device. Then click on properties and configure the device. Follow on screen instructions.

Now once you have done the above you will also need to configure the controller gamepad in the game itself under options and under input devices/joysticks.

Good luck! Please rate after you are completed!
