You need to exchange it. It just shouldn't be experiencing this problem this early in the game. It sounds like a power supply problem, but could be much more serious than that.
Best thing is to get another one- this one sounds like a lemon.
Hope this helps.

My dryer Bosch maxx 7 doesn't work


That is a bad motor. It is overheating and the overload is shutting it down. Check to see if there is lint buildup on the motor. If not, you will need a new motor.

I have the same problem with a Canon Powershot s20. Bought approx 5 years ago...


Many digital cameras (eg Samsung D53, Nikon 2100) have extremely poor battery life with alkaline batteries (under 20 shots!). Sometimes they won't even take a single picture.

Try using rechargeable batteries or "oxyride" disposable batteries. They perform infinately better.

MY PC RESTARTS WHEN IT SHOWS BIOS,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,IT ALSO SPEEDS UP PROCESSOR FAN AND SHUTS DOWN


I'm by far no computer tech, but I'm not a newbie either. I had a similar problem a few years back with my GX280. In order to keep my 1yr old son out of my computer tower, I had hast-fully and unknowing incorrectly installed a new stick of ram. Installed the ram powered the machine back up, "OK son time for bed" By the time I got half way down the hallway I knew something was wrong. I have never smelled boiling or burning bleach before, but thats what grabbed my attention. Immediately I ran back to the computer and literally pulled the power cord from the wall, but it was already to late. The problem... That unknowingly, improperly installed stick of ram was not fully secured by the hold down clips and was slightly raised half in, half out of the slot. The ram stick was hotter than the surface of the sun, yet undamaged. My mother board wasn't so lucky. I powered the machine on again, it beeped at me 4 times 1 long tone 2 short tones and 1 long tone blank monitor and did nothing else. The beeps I thought probably the computer cursing me in its own dll language. I again pushed the power button to reboot. when the computer rebooted, again with the beeping accompanied by the cpu fan exponentially. I didn't and couldn't see the physical damage to the board until I removed the board from the tower itself. I noticed on the underside of the mother board I had burnt a blazing trail from the ram bus slot to the main power slot where the wire harness connects to the board from the power cube. This problem the cpu fan running away with itself can also happen when a component is improperly connected, or not connected at all. Check ALL your CONNECTIONS. If that doesn't work, you might have some sort of hardware problem.

Hope this works for you, or at least helps you out.

Good luck, have a great day, and remember computers are like vehicles you own one and eventually your gonna have a problem.

I have power to motherboard connected to monitor using onboard graphics. Nothing. Connected my new video card still nothing. What else can I do?


Remove the ram and try to power on the motherboard. If the machine gives a series of long beeps when the ram is not installed, it is a good thing. This determines if the motherboard is posting.

If the beep code does not occur then the motherboard itself is bad, and short of using a multimeter to determine what component on the mobo is actually bad, a replacement would be in order.

Acer screen is black or blurry


If you've connected an external monitor to your computer and the image is coming up fine then that means your video card on the motherboard is good.

The only other parts it could be is the LCD Flex cable that connects to the LCD screen to the motherboard, the LCD Inverter that powers the LCD screen or the LCD screen itself. Usually you can find a used screen that is complete with all those components on ebay.

Bought HP S20 New in box on Ebay......installed software......powered up and linked USB......message "communication with scanner lost" cannot rectify


I use an older USB Powered Hub between my computer and the S20 scanner, a Belkin I found at a garage sale for $2 works fine. It is only rated for USB 1.1. The S20 is a USB 1.1 device. My computer was "too fast" with its USB 2.0 ports and it looks like I needed to "slow it down". There is no way it will worked plugged directly into the computer, but plugged into the hub, and then the hub plugged into the computer, it is very reliable.

Windows XP had nothing to do with it, from what I can see. I had Windows XP on a previous computer with only USB 1.1, and ran into the problem when I got a computer with USB 2.0 ports.
