Fuse values for PC's

I'm doing the level 2 certificate in maintaining ICT equipment and systems one of the main things i have to know is what value should be used for the power plug for my PC's base unit and monitor as i have to keep a system electrical safety inspection sheet.  I have to calculate the value of each fuse and enter the values.  But i don't know the values.

I'm not sure that I understand your question..if you are referring to the AC  power at the receptacle or what. 


If you are asking what value fuse should be used for plugging in particluar equipment then you need to know the source VOLTAGE,  AMPS used bt the equipment and do a current calculation. 


Google on the "electrical power triangle" or POWER FORMULA and you can see the formulas.

My 2003 Astro vans rear heater works great but the front only blows cold air

temp. blend door actuator is probably bad .
Air Temperature Actuator
The air temperature actuator is a 3 wire bi-directional electric motor. Ignition 3 voltage, ground and control circuits enable the actuator to operate. The control circuit uses a 0-12 volt linear-ramped signal to command the actuator movement. The 0 and 12 volt control values represent the opposite limits of the actuator range of motion. The values in between 0 and 12 volts correspond to the positions between the limits.
When the HVAC control assembly sets a commanded, or targeted, value, the control signal is set to a value between 0-12 volts. The actuator shaft rotates until the commanded position is reached. The module will maintain the control value until a new commanded value is needed.

HVAC Control Assembly
The HVAC control assembly is a non-class 2 device that interfaces between the operator and the HVAC system to maintain air temperature and settings. The battery positive and ignition 3 voltage circuits provide power to the control assembly. Two integrated potentiometers control air temperature door position and blower motor speed. The integrated vacuum system controls the mode door position. The control assembly supports the following features:

I don't know how to graph absolute value functions on Casio fx-9750GII.

When it is time for you to put an expression in absolute value, press the OPTN key, then F5/Num, then F1/Abs. Open parenthesis, input expression, then close parenthesis.
For fractions, use the key with the symbol a b/c.
A little friendly advice, please do invest some of your time reading the manual. Most Casio graphing calculators work the same way. What you learn on one, works on another.

Where can I find the cruise control fuse on a 2008 hhr

The odds of a fuse being the problem with a non operating cruise control are astronomical . Knowing how the cruise control works is a must in trouble shooting . The different modules involved ,the GMLAN serial data network etc... Here is the factory repair manual description .
Cruise Control Description and Operation
Cruise control is a speed control system that maintains a desired vehicle speed under normal driving conditions at speeds above 40 km/h (25 mph). Steep grades may cause variations in the selected vehicle speeds.
The following are the main components of the cruise control system:
The accelerator pedal

The brake pedal position (BPP) sensor

The body control module (BCM)

The cruise on/off switch

The + RES switch (equivalent to resume/accel switch)

The - SET switch (equivalent to set/coast switch)

The engine control module (ECM)

The clutch pedal position (CPP) sensor, if equipped with a manual transmission

The throttle actuator control (TAC) motor

The vehicle speed sensor

The body control module (BCM) monitors the signal circuit of the cruise control switches, which are located on the steering wheel. The BCM relays the cruise control switch status to the engine control module (ECM) via the GMLAN serial data circuit. The ECM uses the status of the cruise control switch to determine when to capture and maintain the vehicle speed. The ECM monitors the vehicle speed signal circuit in order to determine the desired vehicle speed. The ECM uses the TAC motor in order to maintain the vehicle speed. For further information on the TAC system, refer to Throttle Actuator Control (TAC) System Description for the 2.2L engine or to Throttle Actuator Control (TAC) System Description for the 2.4L engine.
Ignition voltage is supplied to the cruise control switch from the 2-ampere EPS fuse located in the integrated BCM fuse block. The cruise control function switches are arranged in a resistive ladder design, with each cruise control function switch having a different resistance value. The BCM detects a specific voltage value that is associated with the cruise control function switch being activated. When the normally open cruise control on/off switch is turned ON, the switch closes and the BCM sends a GMLAN serial data message to the ECM indicating that the on/off switch is active. Similarly, when the normally open + RES switch or the normally open - SET switch are pressed, the switch closes and the BCM detects the predetermined voltage signal on the cruise control switch signal circuit. The BCM sends a GMLAN serial data message to the ECM indicating that the + RES switch or the - SET switch is active. The + RES switch or the - SET switch will remain inactive when the BCM has not received the predetermined voltage signal from the on/off switch.
Unless the air bag light is lit too , your best bet would be to take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop.

How to fix remote connection?

It depends on the problem you are having.
Most often remote connection problems are caused by firewalls

Are you trying to connect across the internet or are your two machines on the same LAN.

Are you only running windows firwall or do you have a third party firewall installed.

I suggest you run off the firewalls first and try to connect on the LAN and then add things back in one at a time until you solve the problem.

There may be more than one thing blocking you.

I hope this helps
