Thought about it and due to the fact that you've used an external keyboard (USB), it sounds as if you have corrupt drivers. Could be a sign of a failing hard drive, especially with the age of the machine. I'd have them mirror the HDD and then try to repair the original. If that works, re-mirror the ...

Last time I looked, they were MCM - Newark, and that was... last year? Yeah, saw that coming. I'll have to look at the new site and see what I'll be lamenting over.

Inkjets are the most expensive printing options out there, unless you get lucky. I'll expound. Went from a 9 pin (don't remember the brand) to an Apollo (HP clone) that lasted only about a month. Then 2 Lexmark photo quality units (maybe 2 years out of each), then the kids school sent a HP 2200 for ...

You don't have anything like Sticky Keys or some other aid turned on? It's been a while, but if you inadvertently hold down the shift key for too long, it can activate them.

Try a fresh, cold boot and tell us what happens. It'll only take a few minutes, what can it hurt?

I was on several Wikipedia pages, and the Max Current spec wasn't listed. Bizarre.

Thanks!

I have a project, possibly projects, that will run on USB power, but am having a rough time finding the "standard" current rating on USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 computer ports. I know the original (well, finalized 1.1 specs) max current was 500 mA, but subsequent specs have eluded my normally adro...

You have that book too??!! ;)

That was along my line of thinking, keep what you can as constant as possible, as even as possible, as minimized as possible, and let the probes do their job.

Okay. Wasn't sure if you were doing from scratch via a MicroController (software compensation) all hardware. All hardware based. ;) (Preaching to the choir, I know) I would think that a solid state relay would be the best option to minimize offset within the switching since there are no mechanical p...

Something to keep in mind for the future should you get a Bluetooth device while you still have this vehicle - there are standalone Bluetooth receiver to line out devices out there. I was looking for one for my current vehicle and most I had seen were in the $40 + range, mostly at Wally World and Pe...

I think the big question here is:
Is this an analog design or a digital (microcontroller) design?
This would greatly affect how you would deal with the issue at hand.

Also, since it was a sudden physical impact, have you tried pressing/moving components while the unit is on and can hear the weak output? Rubber / latex / nitrile gloves will keep you safe from any voltages present while powered. As has been said already, suspect the heavier / larger components as t...

^^And as in the case with my refrigerator power cord, the hot and neutral blades are at the tip of the plug while the ground is in line with the cord. The outlet for the fridge is about 3-1/2' -4' up on the wall and requires the plug be oriented with ground toward the floor, otherwise the cord would...

Not sure what modern Smoke Detectors use, but they used to use Americum within their little shielded boxes. I believe that you could get your detector near enough to the vent opening to get a slightly elevated reading.

Any one else know if this is true?
