Check your power supply. A beep every 5 seconds or so generally indicates a problem with power supply voltages.

Interior lights on 95 grand am done went slap stupid.

Power Output Diagnostic Mode
You may use a power output diagnostic mode in the multifunction alarm module in order to run a quick test on the operation of the following outputs:
• The courtesy lamps control
• The inadvertent power control
The power output diagnostic mode activates after you perform all of following actions:
• Close all of the doors.
• Set the park brake.
• Turn the ignition switch to RUN.
Before 15 seconds pass, perform the following steps:
• Open the right front door.
• Cycle the headlamp switch from OFF to PARK three times.
During a normal operation, the multifunction alarm module will flash the interior lamps until the ignition switch turns OFF. If an internal short occurs in the multifunction alarm module, the module will chime in the following patterns:
• One chime every 3 seconds implies an inadvertent output failure.
• Two chimes every 3 seconds implies a courtesy output failure.

Can I turn the beeper off on the end of the washcycle on the DDY062 Hoover dishwasher. I want to put it on timer delay and dont want to be woken in the middle of the night.

These are the instructions taken directly from the DDY062 manual:
Alarm mute for the PROGRAMME END
The alarm for the programme end may be muted as follows:
IMPORTANT The dishwasher must be ALWAYS off before start this procedure.
1. Hold down the "PROGRAMME SELECTION" button and at the same time switch on the dishwasher by pressing the "ON/OFF" button (a brief audible signal will sound).
2. Keep the "PROGRAMME SELECTION" button pressed for at least 15 seconds (during this time, 2 audible signals will sound).
3. Release the button when the second audible signal sounds (3 "PROGRAMME SELECTION" indicator lights will come on).
4. Press the same button again: the 3 indicator lights (which indicate that the alarm is activated) will start flashing (to indicate that the alarm is off).
5. Turn off the dishwasher by pressing the "ON/OFF" button to confirm the new setting.
To turn the alarm on again, follow the same procedure.

Mesh computer froze and now getting an audible alarm sound every 5 seconds. Computer will not load up now. How can I fix this ?

Could be several things You'll have to rule out each by using the process of elimination.

1. Unplug power from PC.

2. Pull all memory from motherboard.
  • Replace one stick at a time and try to boot each time.
  • If the PC boots with one of the sticks, it may be the other that's bad.
3. Check the processor fan and heatsink. Make sure the fan is running. If your PC will boot after sitting for a while and cooling, this may be the cause.

4. You 'll need to have an open PCI-E, AGP or PCI slot to rule out the on-board video, if your mothrboard has this. Otherwise, you will have to remove the old video card and use one that you know works to rule out your current video card.

Hopefully one of these will help you solve your problem. Get back to me and let me know the outcome(s). It can be solved.

Monitor switches on. shows screen for about 5

Make sure your computer is working properly. Hook up another known working monitor up to the computer and turn it on. If you get video on the known good monitor then that means the original monitor is bad. If you don't get video on the know good working monitor then that means the computer has no video output and the computer would need to be troubleshooted.

Dell B130 boots but nothing on screen and no boot up sounds

If you are seeing an shadow image on the LCD and you have video on an external monitor, then the LCD backlight has failed. The LCD will need to be replaced

I googled B130 LCD's and they generally run $125 to $200
