If this machine is a few years old the most common problem is a failing power supply. The power supply starts to over heat and the internal switching breaks down causing it to not supply the correct voltages where neede (usually to the ram).
Power supply's are ver easy to test with the correct tool, if you have a PC repair shop near you ask them for a quote to test your supply and to fit a new one should yours prove to be faulty.

Haier 45-pint dehumidifier unit cannot be turned on. It has been running fine last few days.


The first thing that comes to mind, is have you emptied the water collection bucket recently? If so, be sure that the bucket was properly reinstalled and is making contact with the bucket safety removal switch.

If you haven't emptied the bucket in the past few days, it may simply be full and will not start until it's emptied.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

My HP netbook keeps freezing. I don't know whether its due to overheating. But everytime when it freezes, its very hot. Another problem is, when i shut down my netbook, it always restarts by itself....


Hi xinyi pang17,

I have heard of this problem many times and it is usually due to overheating and motherboard problem. But first thing that you need to check is if the fan is working properly or not. You can use a canned air to blow out dust and accumulated particles from the fan.

However, freezing may also be caused by faulty processor. The unit may freeze (and overheat) while booting up, while using the computer or before the operating system loads if the processor is failing. To verify if the processor is failing, just access the BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) setup and test if it will overheat from there. If it does, surely the processor and/or motherboard needs to be replaced.

Hope this helps.

It is not starting up


Hi,

Good day. I suggest for you to reinstall windows and use the repair options. Usually software encounter errors or some files might get corrupted causing your computer not to boot up properly. The repair option in Windows XP will help you to fix those issue. here are the steps to follow:

1. Rule out hardware issues. Windows Repair will only fix software problems. Hardware issues can also cause boot problems (i.e. bad hard drive, memory, CPU, or power supply).

2. Backup. It's always a good idea to backup your important data before making changes to Windows XP. Relax, if you follow these instructions your data will be perfectly safe.

3. Boot from your Windows XP CD. Insert the Windows XP CD into your computer's CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive, and then restart your computer. When the "Press any key to boot from CD" message appears on the screen, press a key to start your computer from the Windows XP CD.

4. A blue screen will appear and begin loading Windows XP Setup from the CD.

5. When completed loading files, you will be presented with the following "Windows Setup" screen, and your first option. Select "To set up Windows XP now, press ENTER". DO NOT select Recovery Console.

6. Then press F8 to continue

7. Next, Windows Setup will find existing Windows XP installations. You will be asked to repair an existing XP installation, or install a fresh copy of Windows XP.

8. Then just choose repair option to repair your Windows Xp

9 Then it should work. If iin any case that will not solve the issue, you might try to install fresh copy on Windows Xp


Hope this information will help you resolve your issue. Have a great day.

My Computer will turn on and go to the windows XP loading screen with the blue bars and will won't load up, it rarely does but when it gets to the log on user screen it freezes


Right after your POST screen goes off,before you get to Windows starting,try pushing the F8 key several times until you get the Windows boot options.Then try 'last known good configuration".
If that doesn't work,you can boot from the Windows installation disk and try to repair your Windows installation.Let me know what happens.
And good or bad, please rate my post?
