My acer laptop 4551 is blue screen after using for 30 minutes online


Blue Screen Error messages can have a multitude of potential causes, such as: Failed, failing or faulty Hard Disk Drives (HHD); Faulty or incompatible Random Access Memory (RAM) Modules (often referred to as sticks of RAM); Operating System (O/S) corruption; incorrect System Settings changes; Failed failing, faulty, overheating or overheated Graphical Processing Units (GPU - commonly referred to as Onboard Graphics Chips); Overheating of Central Processing Units (CPU) caused by Cooling Fan (CF), Cool Air Intake (CAI) or Hot Air Exhaust Vent (HAEV) blockage as a result of use of a portable computer on an inappropriate surface such as soft cushions, soft bedding material or thick, piled rugs or carpets; CPU overheating caused by a failed, failing or faulty CPU Cooling Fan; Registry Editing Errors; Page File Sizing Errors (Page Files are adjustable extra spaces on the HHD created and allocated by the System for essential Memory Operations that the RAM is either too small is size - measured in Mb/Gb -or too slow in speed - measured in GHz - to handle alone); Malware infections; Web Browser corruption; Device Driver conflicts, corruptions or accidental deletions; incorrect Device Interrupt Request (IRQ) settings in the Basic Input Output System (BIOS); Incorrect BIOS Settings; Incorrect System File compression decisions by a User trying to create extra space on a nearly full HDD; A full HDD with no room to store additional data; Accidental deletion of a cruccial system File; Accidental deletion of an essential Common File or Program shared by other Applications; Overheating of the CPU by the encrusting or layering of dirt, dust, grime, carpet fibers, pet hair, etc directly in the grille of the CF, CF CAI or CF HAEV, etc, etc., etc (as you can probably tell, I could go on and on).

Computers that freeze, crash (spontaneously shutdown an application, Web Browser or the O/S in mid-use) or Blue Screen, indicate a serious underlying problem that should be addressed immediately, rather than being postponed.

Continuing to try to Boot (launch the O/S) and O/S that refuses to Boot or repeatedly cycles back to a Blue Screen or continuing to use a computer that Boots successfully but repeatedly freezes, crashes or Blue Screens can lead to serious or, irreparable damage to vital hardware components or to the System Registry or System Files essential to the normal operation of the computer.

All Error Messages contain hints or information about the likely underlying causes that generated them. Since Blue screens also tend to result from only the most serious types of underlying hardware or software fault (hence the common, morbid reference to them as examples of the "Blue Screen of Death"), Blue Screen Error messages are amongst the most detailed, informative and educational of all Error Messages. Not only do Blue Screen Error Messages isolate and indicate what software or hardware issues might probably have caused them, they also propose a range of potential remedies to the underlying cause of the symptom itself.

The correct thing to do now (just one final time) is to use the computer until it Blue Screens again but not panic or ignore it and, this time, patiently read through the Error Message carefully taking notes with pen and paper for later reference, (this is important because a Blue Screening computer could well be on the verge of total failure), understanding the likely causes, thinking back about anything the User might have unknowingly done that might have unwittingly contributed to underlying cause of the underlying fault, and then carefully and systematically implementing each recommended remedy in the proposed steps in an attempt to undo any identifiable settings, configuration, hardware or software compatibility or malware download and subsequent infection errors that can be isolated by following the Blue Screen's troubleshooting guidelines.

If, even after considering and trying all of the above first, you still are unable to precisely pinpoint the underlying cause or rectify the fault, then please add a comment with a narrowed down list of potential causes, after having, by yourself, eliminated as many potential causes as possible from the long list above and possibly even longer final list, as indicated by the text of the Error Message.

Please include in any further comment here a brief list of the remedies you have attempted and the outcomes that resulted from each attempt (as you can see from my very long reply to your more-complicated-than-at-first-glance question, within reason, you will have no constraints of space here and, as a general rule, the more accurate, relevant background information you are able to provide a cost-free remote diagnostician and cost-free remote solution provider, the better the quality, relevance, accuracy and usefulness of the answer you will receive in reply).

Hopefully this will help you isolate, identify and remedy the underlying fault, either on your own or with a little additional guidance from myself or one of my fellow experts.

Canon rebel xt error messages


error 99 can most times be remedied by taking a standard pencil eraser and carefully cleaning the gold contacts at the back of the lens and the gold maching contacts in the lens opening of the camera... BE CAREFUL not to let eraser crumbs into your camera... keep it clean... reset the battery and give it a whirl.... did it solve the 99 issue?
for the CF it refers to the cf card... here's what I've found on this:
Canon reports that this error code may appear on your digital camera’s LCD (liquid-crystal display) when there is an error reading from or writing to the inserted CF (CompactFlash) card. This error code occurs most often after a user has tried to eject a CF card before the camera has finished writing data to the card.Solution:
Canon suggests that you first try to use a different CF card. If you do not see the error message when you use the new CF card, the first card is probably damaged.

Before you take the next step, drag the files from the CF card to a location on your hard drive to back up the files. Next, you can use Windows’ ScanDisk utility to check the CF card for errors. If you use a Mac, you can use Disk Utility (in Applications\Utilities\) in OS X.

If ScanDisk or Disk Utility fails to resolve the CF card problem, insert the CF card in your camera again. Then format the CF card. On most Canon cameras, you can do this by pressing the Menu button, selecting the Format tab, highlighting Format, selecting Format, and choosing Yes. Make sure you have backed up the data on the card before you do this. Formatting the card will delete the images from the card. After you format the card in your camera, use ScanDisk or Disk Utility to check the CF card again. If you still encounter errors while using ScanDisk or Disk Utility, you should discard the CF card because it is damaged.

If the error still occurs after following the steps above, your camera may need repair. Contact Canon’s technical support for further assistance.

hope this solves your issues....
let me know

Canon rebel xti says cf card replace i have replaced same fault


Check with a magnifier and a flashlight the conditions of the CF memory reader pins. Usually this kind of cameras have the common problem of have bent or broken the CF reader pins. This may caused the original CF error. If you tried to format a CF memory card, then the bent or broken pins may caused the Error 99. By the way, error 99 is applicable to a very open range of problems (lens contacts, faulty shutter, CF memory card access errors, etc). If is under warranty your camera, once you confirm the reason of the problem, send it to Canon for repair. If is out of warranty, you need somebody to repair it, which is not easy for the common person. If need help on repairing it, please contact the ID user Great_items_2004 at ebay. Regards and good luck.

CF Card


Please post back the error message you notice.

Error code 22


ERR 22: CF DRIVER
DESCRIPTION: This error occurs when image data cannot be written to the CF card. This error can occur when the CF card is not fully seated in the camera or if the D30 does not detect a card-ready signal within a specified time limit or when the CF card is not usable because it has been corrupted or physically damaged. It can also occur when the camera's battery level is insufficient to completely write the file to the CF card. REMEDIAL MEASURE: Use the DC Coupler or recharge the battery first. If the error continues to occur with sufficient power available to the camera, check that the CF card is properly inserted. If that's not the problem, then try replacing the CF card. If that does not solve the problem, have the EOS D30 and one of the CF cards that is causing the problem examined by a qualified service technician.

Err 99


Although you may have cleaned the lens contacts, did you clean the camera contacts? This is a bit harder but it’s doable: just hold camera so lens opening points down so no gunk falls in. Erase lightly. I used a lens cloth and dabbed at the contacts rather than blow them so as not to blow the erasings inside the camera.

1. Turn off the camera.
2. Remove the lens, battery, and CF card.
3. Allow the camera to sit without power for approximately 20 minutes.
4. Insert a fully charged battery, and turn on the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.
Does the “ERR 99′ message appear? If it does, then the camera should be
serviced. If it does not, then please proceed to the next set of steps:
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Insert the CF card.
3. Turn on the camera.
4. Format the CF card in the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.
Does the “ERR 99′ message appear? If so, then the CF card is the most
likely source of the issue. Try using a different card.
If the message does not appear, please complete the following steps:
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Clean the lens contacts by gently rubbing them with a pencil eraser
or soft cloth. Be careful that you do not let any debris fall into the
camera body.
3. Reattach your lens.
4. Turn on the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.
If the “ERR 99′ message only appears when one particular lens is attached, then that lens should be examined by a service technician.
If you see the “ERR 99′ with a different Canon lens attached, then the camera should be serviced.

Error 50


The "E50" error code indicates formatting a CF card has failed. Solution To clear the "E50" error, try performing the following procedure. 1. Try using another CF card. If you have another CF card, try loading it in the camera. If the error code is not displayed when the other CF card is loaded, there may be something wrong with the first one rather than with the camera. 2. Use your computer's ScanDisk utility to check the CF card for errors. Use ScanDisk to check the CF card for card error or card failure. Refer to the instruction manual for your operating system or Windows Help for further instructions. (If you are using a Macintosh, use the "Disk First Aid" program to check for card error or card failure. Refer to the instruction manual for your Macintosh OS for further information.) Be sure to back up the data on the CF card on the computer before you check the CF card. If a card error or card failure occurs when you use your computer's ScanDisk, there is something wrong with the CF card. Follow ScanDisk's on-screen instructions to solve the problem.

Memory card error - E50


Error Code "E50" (CF card formatting error) When a camera error occurs, an error code like "Exx" will be displayed, where the x's represent numbers. The "E50" error code indicates formatting a CF card has failed. Solution To clear the "E50" error, try performing the following procedure. 1. Try using another CF card. If you have another CF card, try loading it in the camera. If the error code is not displayed when the other CF card is loaded, there may be something wrong with the first one rather than with the camera. 2. Use your computer's ScanDisk utility to check the CF card for errors. Use ScanDisk to check the CF card for card error or card failure. Refer to the instruction manual for your operating system or Windows Help for further instructions. (If you are using a Macintosh, use the "Disk First Aid" program to check for card error or card failure. Refer to the instruction manual for your Macintosh OS for further information.) Be sure to back up the data on the CF card on the computer before you check the CF card. If a card error or card failure occurs when you use your computer's ScanDisk, there is something wrong with the CF card. Follow ScanDisk's on-screen instructions to solve the problem. If the same error occurs when you are using the CF card supplied with the camera, please contact the retailer where you purchased the camera or the nearest Canon service center. If the error code is displayed right after you took a picture, the image may not have been recorded. Switch the camera to playback mode to check if it was recorded. Precautions for handling a CF card: - Do not remove a CF card or disconnect the camera's power source while the camera is recording, loading, or erasing data on a CF card. - CF cards are high-precision electronic devices. Do not bend, force, or subject them to shocks or vibration. - Do not attempt to disassemble or alter a CF card. - Place the CF card in the supplied case for storage. - Moving a CF card rapidly between temperature extremes may cause condensation in the card, leading to potential malfunctions. To avoid condensation, place the CF card in a sealed plastic bag before moving it into a different temperature area and allow it to adjust slowly to the new temperature. If condensation forms on the CF card, put it aside until the water droplets have evaporated completely. - Do not use or store CF cards in the locations subject to dust or sand, high humidity, or high temperatures.
