What resistance is required to run a 6V 75A light with a 12V 2.5A battery?

You can't run a 6V 75A (450W) light off a 12V 2.5A (30W) battery for any significant length of time. That battery is grossly undersized. I think that's supposed to be "0.75A" instead of "75A." I found a 75-watt light bulb on the internet, but 75 amps? You could weld with that much power. And I like the answer right below this one best: just wire two of these bulbs in series. The answer is simple by using the formular called OHM's LAW (V=IxR) The 6V,3/4 amp bulb has (approx) 8 ohms resistance which 'drops' the 6 volts across it. At the same current (thru the SERIES circuit) you need anothe 8 ohm resistance. Unfortunately, the bulb dissipates 4.5 WATTS of power, the same as your 'extra' resistor will have to handle. (Rather WARM!) The easiest trick to do would be to put two 6v bulbs together in series, this will put your 'extra' resistor (the second bulb's filament) inside of a protected glass shell. The second bulb will not waste any more power than the resistor, and will give you twice the light.

Does a driver have a reasonable expectation that the driver ahead will continue at the same speed and direction unless properly signaled?

== == No. Expecting such a thing is dangerous. Expect the unexpected, and drive defensively. Assume the driver in front is going to slam on the brakes without warning, and drive accordingly. The average car takes from 130-150 feet to stop at a speed of 60 mph in good conditions on dry pavement. Double that on a wet road, and triple it on snow. Tailgating is one of the most irresponsible things a driver can do, and that is why the driver in the rear is almost always legally at fault in a rear-ender.

Use the 3-second rule to never be too close, and have time to stop when that driver does something unexpected (which they will). Pick out an object in front of the car you are following. When that car passes the object, start counting, 1 one thousand, 2 one thousand, 3 one thousand. If you get to the object you picked out before reaching 3 one thousand, you are following too closely.

Use the 6-second rule on a wet road and 9 seconds on snow. Practice this and eventually it will become second nature. In the beginning you will think that you are way too far behind the car in front, but you are not. Most people drive too closely, that is why there are more rear-end accidents than any other. Driving in this manner will prevent you from hitting anyone in the rear no matter what they do. All it takes is 3 seconds to drive defensively. Most "good drivers," at least as defined by many Driver's Education programs, should be expected to do this except in case of emergency (e.g. a sudden engine failure or incident in front of them). Reality, though, says otherwise. The previous section describes reality all too well.

1988 4runner rear window wont work at consol or rear window motor works and clicking noise at relay behind drivers seat?

ive had the same problem i took the relay apart then put it back to get there and it worked fine or you might want to replace it if that dosent work. Had same problem. Turned out cover safety switch was bad. Switch is operated by first bolt forward of the pin on driver's side rear. Replaced and everything is now fine.

Had the same problem, there is also another safety switch that is located on your rear windshield wiper. If the wiper is not all of the way up in its home seated position then the rear window will not go down. If you move the windshield wiper up past the plastic holder and try to move the window down from the key hole in the gate it should work. you will just have to adjust the switch so that the wiper depresses the switch when it is home. Also your console switch might have a bunch of corrosion inside of it not allowing the contacts to touch. you can either replace the switch or clean it out.

How do you remove a partition on a hard drive running Windows 98 without reformatting the hard disk?

On a Windows 98 system, there is very likely to only be one partition on the disk. The difference between formatting the disk and deleting the partition would thus be a matter of semantics. Either way, all the data on the hard drive would be gone.

Is there any way to create a 'system restore' partition or CD with Windows 98 SE?

There are a number of programs you can buy to facilitate this. Both a partition and a CD are possible, but the partition is a bit riskier. I have not done this in several years, but I ran into problems with what to do when I decided I did not want the partition anymore. Anyway, try looking at buying a program. The CD method is sometimes called imaging the harddrive or ghosting it.

How can you properly shutdown Windows 98SE when you get a sign saying Windows is shutting down that hangs there until you manually push the off switch?

I had this problem consistently occur with my PC and this operating system. As I remember it appeared to occur after I installed a new modem (or some other hardware). I found that even though I had to turn the PC off at the switch it did not appear to be causeing any other issue eg corrupting the harddrive (which would be evidenced by a scandisk occurring at next boot up).

If in your case it is causing no problems other than being annoying I wouldn't worry about it. Did you always have this problem or did it coincide with the installation of some hardware and\or software.

You could spend a lot of time trying to solve the issue and still not fix it. It is nice to have your PC working perfectly but sometimes you just have to live with these things. There may just not be a fix.

Keep in mind that Microsoft no longer supports this operating system, and hence a lot of application and hardware providers won't be bothering with this OS either so you wouldn't now what affect installing new applications will have on this old OS.

Another solution is to upgrade :)

AnswerThere is full information on Win98SE shutdown problems at http://support.Microsoft.com/kb/q238096/ It cured my problems AnswerYou may solve this problem by accessing in Control Panel > PM

Adjust the settings

Or go to your Boards Bios > APM or Power settings

AnswerYes, someone already answered the question, if you go to Microsoft you can download a patch, the reason this happens is because the sound card which controls the shutdown, becomes corrupt or damaged, 4756us8 is the file, or Q239887 is the actual file, but after the download it is 4756us8 on the desktop, even with this file, the shutdown can become corrupt, and may have to be installed several times during the year depending on your software environment. Answergo to control pannel System Devices open system remove Advanced power management or APM Witchever restart it will reinstall it "usually fixes the problem the VXD can get corrupt from power loss if someone just unpluged your computer ETC it will do that"Bonkerz T Bobcat Rebuild & Programed Computers for 5 years now Still not the GURU yet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Answerthere are many FREE softwares availiable on the net to do this job.if other things whiich you might try doesnt fix your problem then you should download one of these softwares.an example of softwares like this is REBOOTER which forcefully shuts down the computer.i used this software and it totally solved my proclem.

What are the unique features of a flagship?

It is the vessel that the fleet commander (usually a Flag officer or Admiral) uses while commanding. It is his office at sea and the location where his flag is flown, therefore it is temporary site. It usually provides added space for his staff and enhanced communications equipment. In war, an admiral has the choice to fly his flag from any ship that he wants. Admiral Perry's motto was "Don't Give Up the Ship," but he won the Battle of Lake Erie by doing exactly that, and transferring his flag to another ship after his flagship was put out of action.

Which Windows 98 updates will help an old slow PC and which ones will hurt it?

No updates will "hurt" it; but for space's sake, only apply updates to issues that you know will affect you. For example, if you play a lot of games, you will want the latest version of DirectX for Windows 98.

Updates aren't likely to seriously benefit performance. Some users have reported slight speed increases after installing the .NET framework, but this also uses a lot of hard drive space.

you don't have enough ram or memory If you take off your start-up programs, it may help. On windows XP go to the start button, run and type in msconfig. At the top of the window there are tabs choose the tab that says start-up. Uncheck everything it will not harm your computer. Click apply then ok. It will tell you to reboot your computer when it reboots a window will appear that states "You are using selective start-up" there is a box in the middle of the window that says "Do not show this messge again" click that. Open up internet explorer at the top go to tools then go down to windows updates, follow the on-screen instructions. When complete reboot your computer and do the windows updates again. Do this a few times to make sure nothing is missing. Right click on the internet explorer icon on your desktop and go to properties, click delete cookies, click delete files, click clear history, change the history to 2 days.

The Difference Between

What is the difference between Hibernate and Standby in Windows?

Hibernate saves an image of your desktop with all open files and documents, and powers down your computer. When you turn on power, your files and documents are open on your desktop exactly as you left them.

Standby reduces the power consumption of your computer by cutting power to hardware components you are not using. Standby can cut power to peripheral devices, your monitor, and even your hard drive, but maintains power to your computer's memory so you don't lose your work.

Standby reduces power consumption from about 50 to 2.5 watts, while Hibernate reduces it from about 50 to 1.8 watts, since modern computers are always using some power even when "off".

Since the difference in the amount of power saved is insignificant and users are more likely to get in the habit of choosing standby because it is faster, standby may be the best choice for environmentally conscious users.

How do you upgrade from Windows 98 to Windows ME?

Instead of getting to Windows ME from Windows 98 ... Why don't u go to Windows 2000 Pro with SP4 installed later on or Windows XP Pro ...

ME is just an illusion. Many things in ME does not work properly ....

Its very easy to upgrade ... Just install New Updated OS CD and boot your machine from it instead of booting from Hard drive. Then follow the instructions that's all ...

I personally recommend backing up your important DATA from your machine and then INSTEAD of just UPGRADING from Lower Windows OS to Higher Windows OS ...

REFORMAT while INSTALLING the FRESH copy of Higher Windows OS. Its always better to install a FRESH copy instead of just upgrading. Another thing with upgrading is that Windows copes older version system files onto the hard drive and then you may end up getting new problems ....
