General Discussion Area / Odd goings on with new PC
« on: 28 June 2018, 19:35:38 »
I've just inherited a Packard Bell M3700 integrated desktop, basically a big screen with a computer inside. It has this on screen touchpad thing which I don't need and it sits quietly in the top corner of the screen. It also has this peculiar problem where the mouse is jumping about the screen, right clicking and doing weird stuff. It also seems to change the tabs and if I am typing the cursor just disappears as if it had clicked off the screen' it's happened about 8 times while typing this. It also seemed to refresh this page when I was typing this out so had to type all again.

I've tried virus/malware scan, done all the updates, checked another mouse, turned off all the usual guff that was running in the background and it is still doing it. I even tried running in safe mode but was still doing it. I am going to try running virus scan in safe mode as I had that before on another PC where the virus could hide itself from the scanner in normal windows mode.

In the meantime any other things I can check?

Cheers

Block of wood between subframe bush bolt area and where rear chassis leg comes out from that area, jack up, then axle stand on rear sill jacking point. Doing that allows jack to be out the way enough to get axle stand on sill.

Getting back to the original point. Out of curiosity I have been out and had a look for the TPS on mine (assuming in the region of front of plenum) but cant find it !  ??? :-[

There is a plug on left side just under and to the left of bellows air intake bit, i think that's where it resides. My plug securing clip was broke off when i done TB so had to secure plug with tie wrap as it was actually causing running problems and codes

Biggest problem with the dealers on there, was regularly the parts had been sold, and the advert was months out of date.

Yeah i noticed that with quite a few bits, would make sense to link it to the national dealers stock so it was a bit more up to date.o

Boo hoo where we goning to get cheap dealer ex-stock now?

That'll be that damn PSA takeover probably! Have noticed a lot of parts suddenly becoming obsolete since that takeover - coincidence?

I had this on my 2.6 and it turned out clip holding plug onto throttle area was broke and the plug was drifting off causing intermittent connection and subsequent stalling. Just put a tie wrap round ot till i get round to splicing a new plug onto the loom.

New adjuster in drivers side and seems ok light level at that. Will be taking allen key socket and extension should it need adjusted a bit. Got new washer pump for 8 bucks from local factors after VX wanting 60+ and 5 day wait!

Have you made sure it's the washer pump that's fubar and not just the filter on it that's blocked?Sound like easy fixes as long as the headlight adjusters aren't broken/don't break.

Hlight adjusters are fooked, got spare light here in bits, otherwise ok except adjusters, I'm going to put the new adjusters in that and fling it in for MOT as tried adjusting the night and it's all over the shop, well everyway but up. Tested the pump supply and it's 12v and the pump isn't buzzing so defo that.

Just went through MOT there, everything fine apart from.....washer pump somehow gave up the ghost, never gave me issue except now, guess a pre-check of the silly things would have been pertinent!

Guy also said the O/S light is slightly low so I need to hope the adjuster moves it up a bit when I twiddle it round. I'll need to do that tonight when it's a bit darker and lights against wall to see if it is going up and also matching the other one somewhat.

Omega General Help / Re: Air con low pressure pipe hot
« on: 28 May 2018, 13:45:43 »
Hey Sir! , from what you have mentioned i can tell that you have a problem in the AC System , not sure where it comes from but i tell you from what i know , because i had an experience with this matter before , so the thing is as follows , the HP Line should be hot , i mean like real hot that is a normal thing , but the low pressure pipe should be significantly COLD to touch , when everything works as it should be make sure of the following as a checklist

- make sure the condenser fins are not clogged with Dust , particles and insects , make sure to clean it
- Make sure that the condenser fan kicks in at the right speed when you turn the AC system usually at the high speed but it could run in low speed
  depending on the weather and traffic ....etc
- the amount of R-134 (Refrigerant Gas) is the right amount as mentioned from the car manufacturer which i think is (950 gram)
- there is no water moisture in the system - this can be solved by taking it to AC specialist to suck all the moisture out and vacuuming the system and refilling it with the right amount of R-134 (Refrigerant Gas)
- the compressor is not working efficiently (could be a bad compressor) - it is recommended to change the Receiver Dryer when you change the compressor
- Faulty Expansion Valve
- Clogged condenser or evaporator

Thanks i will get these checked, i know from experience hp pipe should be warm, think it was too hot almost to touch, which led me to believe one of the things or a combination were at fault, a blockage, poor circulation etc.

You are more than Welcome   :) , about the temperature of the HP line i know that it gets too hot and it is normal that way, i noticed this with 3 different cars , that you cant touch it from its heat. so from my side i think that is a normal thing , i could be wrong but i said this based on my experience with it from different cars

Thanks!

I do know the lp pipe should be cold and gather condensation, and it definitely wasn't, lukewarm to touch.

Take it to be re-gassed.  Note how much comes out, as I think from memory there is should a 950g of R134a !!

Worth getting a new HP valve and LP core and get them to pop them on before filling  :y

At least you will know what is in there is what it should be.

Also, is the compressor spinning ? Should be easy to eyeball it  ;)

Yep was spinning. What do you mean LP core?
