Have a old Pentium II MB and a 350 MHZ processor, when the computer in DOS the power bottom worked fine. However, with Windows XP the power button dose not work. When I turn off computer, and the point where it say "It is safe to turn off the computer". The power dose not worked!
Thank!
 

A:power button dose not work with XP

Firstly, u shouldnt be running XP on such an old computer, secondly XP wants 2 shut your computer, but the MOBO & BIOS are very old and won't let it, so the whole thing is stuffing up.

Solution: Buy a new comp or check for BIOS updates from the motherboard manufacturer.

I attempted to contact HP is regard to the issue that I am experiencing, but cannot as my warranty expired on 6/22/16.  I'm hoping someone e here can provide insight.  When I turned my Stream on this afternoon, it wouldn't boot.  Odd, since it was fully charged last night, so I went ahead and plugged it in.  Upon doing so, I encountered a black screen stating my internal battery was nearly at capacity.  What precisely does that mean?  I am able to use the notebook as long as I keep it plugged in.  Also, while plugged in I receive a message stating that it's connected to a power source and the battery is not charging.  The moment I unplug it, it shuts down. I'm more than upset in regard to this new and unwanted development.  The notebook is only 15 months old.  Is there any way to salvage it or am I looking at buying a new one?  I've always used HP desktops,laptops, and notebooks; now I will never purchase one again. Has anyone else experienced this issue?

My HP pavilion does not take charging after 80% and sometimes the charging light starts blinking. It shows plugged in , not charging.

A:My HP pavilion 15 notebook does not charge after 81%

Have you tried a battery diagnostic either in the UEFI diagnostics (F2 as you power on) or in the HP Support Assistant running from Windows? Stopping at 81% seems like it may be a dead power cell in the battery. Can we have the full model number of the laptop and an idea how old the battery is? Original?

Hello, I am in need of a bit of help. I have a old Gateway 7510GX notebook that wont charge, and will only run if plugged in to the wall. I am 99% sure that the charging circuit has gone bad, because the charge indicator icon stays at 66 percent for ever.

Do you think I should open up the laptop and check the board for burnt components, or what?
Also, External battery chargers for laptops go for big $$$. So would it be possible to remove the cells and hook them to a external charger. (I have a slow charger made for RC Li-Ion batteries that I think would be perfect).

Thanks,
Richard

I have purchased HP 15-AF114AU Notebook about 2 months ago. For the past one week, the battery doesn't charge beyond 90%. Once the bettery reaches 90%, the indicator shows "plugged in, not charging".Initially, it used to charge upto 95%, then it dropped to 94% and now 90% in a span of just one week. I have tried recalibrating the battery by draining it completely and charging it again, run tests using HP Support Assistant and the component test from BIOS, all show the battery to be OK. But still the battery doesn't charge beyond 90%, no matter what I do. Please help.

My notebook is not charging. I don't know if it's the charger that's not working or could it be the charging port on the notebook itself. I have been charging it for the past few days and it's doing pretty well until I plugged it on a socket and didn't charge anymore. Tried checking the charger, it smelled a little burnt on the blue end with the pin and also on the charging port. When I plugged it, there was no popping sound whatsoever that could lead to me assuming it had a short circuit. Checked the socket, it was compatible with the charger. What am I to do?

I got this Toshiba Satellite 32PFL3312/10 - But now there is some problems

The battery indicator says that the the charger is plugged in, and IS charging. but it doesnt charge the battery.. no charge is taking place :-/ Its says there is "0" battery left. I have triede everything.. i toke the battery out, made sure there wasnt any dust etc.. i have tried holdning the power key down in 30 sec and a lot more. everytime i unplug the charger the system instantly swiched off.. I have tried to change the power plan from balanced to saver.

Then i tried to delete the Microsoft ACPI Compliant control method battery from the decive manager, and made it search for it again. This step made the battery start to charge for about 10-15 sec, and then it stopped again.

Now im kind of frustrated... So i thought that maybe it was an windows update problem, so i tried to update - but i got several updates "hanging" but now it wont update.. ! Comes with update errors. tried microsoft fix it, it didnt help.

Then i thought, okay... then i will try to restore to the factory condition, But nothing happens, i have tried all the guides from the Toshiba forums, pressing "0" - I did nothing... Then i tried pressing "F8" it didnt nothing... Then i tried the "F12" still nothing.

Im going nuts now... Hope someone in here can help me....

Hello to all, I'm new to this forum.
Start of with a topic what was published many times before, only not the same as in my situation. The crazy thing is, at every startup from Windows the battery icon runs the charge bar 5 times, and than it stops.

Hi, Recently the main fan on my notebook failed. Thus, I found a new cooling assembly part on ebay, ordered it, and installed it. The installation process required the complete disassembly of the notebook. I followed a video guide for this. I am well aware that disassembly voids any kind of warranty, this machine was already well out of warranty. After re-assembling the notebook, it doesn't boot or show any signs of life. I have tried all combinations of powering on with and without battery, with and without AC adapter, and with and without the hard drive. The computer's charging light doesn't light up when the adapter is plugged in, but right after I insert the plug to the computer, I hear a very faint clicking once or twice where it plugs in. I am curious if possibly during the disassembly/reassembly process I broke a power component to the computer or possibly shorted out something on the motherboard. I didn't use an antistatic wristband during the process however in hindsight I definitely should have. I'm curious as to which part could possibly need replacing according to the symptoms described above. I double checked that all plugs were properly inserted as well. Hopefully someone can point me towards whether the problem is with the DC-in power component within the computer or perhaps the entire motherboard. If it's just the little DC component, could that be easily replaced? Thanks,Matt

Hey, Bit of a late answer, but I'll submit it in case anyone else has a similar issue. There is an issue with one of the BIOS version on the 210 G1, BIOS version F.03. If this is not updated to the most current version you'll find your batteries will drain quite quickly and will not charge properly. Also as your running Ubuntu, you may need to use the UEFI tool from HP to update the BIOS, here it's called the HP PC Hardware Diagnostics 3 in 1 USB Key: http://www8.hp.com/us/en/campaigns/hpsupportassistant/pc-diags.html?jumpid=va_r602_us/en/any/pps/pl_... Best of luck.

Hi EightForum,

I really hope you can answer this simply request.

Nowadays is pretty common to have a new Ultrabook, laptop or notebook for general purposes. A very important feature is to have a healthy battery. We all know that Lithium-batts do a terrific job and are more resistant than never, but after many years of experience, I've learnt that having a software like "Eco charge, Battery care, Smart charge...etc " is a clever and vital feature already present in major brands BUT HP, believe or not. I've just received a new Ultrabook Spectra x360 with windows 8.1, and so far I cannot find any special battery function for this request, even worst nobody can answer in their forum either; I really can't understand this flaw in HP. So, I'd like to know is there any reliable battery software that can allow me to keep the battery charge to 80% and no more, even connected to AC power.

I've seen several that keep info about battery and how to optimize but none with the simple function that I need.

Any help will be highly appreciated.

A:How can I set maximum level of battery charge for notebook

I honestly don't think it is possible to change what is built into the hardware and ACPI that ships with the computer. Would take a program that can access and change the settings in ACPI and this most likely would have to come from the manufacturer.

My wife has a two-year-old Samsung notebook. Recently when she unplugged it the machine cut off, even though the battery said 79% charged (it wouldn't charge any further). I figured that the battery was bad so I bought another one from Amazon.

This one charges to 100% percent and does exactly the same thing. I'm perplexed but think there's something going on with the motherboard that won't let it use battery juice, even if Windows 8.1 says it's 100% charged.

I've tried the hold the power button down for 1 min with the battery out trick to no avail.

Any ideas? I'm stumped and think I might need to get her another notebook.

So, I switched out the power cord, tried fn f2 f3, plugged in a different outlets and still the results are the same- giant paperweight. My trouble all started with downloading Windows 10. The computer crashed constantly, lost power out of the blue, and some other annoyances. I have uninstalled that beast from ***, but encountered issues though less frequently.
What I am getting from the previous posts is that I need a new mother board, right? That seems expensive or techie.  Is there some other means to just charge my battery that doesn't involve another computer?  I have hardly used this refurbished hunk of junk. I refuse to ever get another HP because of the problems I had with their laptops. I hope Dell isn't heading in the same direction.

The battery sometimes starts re-charging when wiggled about.
Most of the wiggling is unsuccessful,it only works momentarily [the screen

anyone had experience of this problem or know what can be done about it?

A:Power charge failure

Sounds like from regular wear and tear from plugging in the power adaper and taking it out has damaged the DC jack.

To fix this you must take it in and have them replace and resolder the new jack on there. However depending on how it was made it May be built into the motherboard which in this case they would probably have to replace the motherboard which is probably not worth the cost. So you may be looking at buying a new laptop.

But it is a very common issue with some laptops, you have to be very careful when plugging in and out the power adapter and not moving it around while its plugged in.

Last night I was confronted by a family member about an HP Stream 11 that I had purchased for them not powering on. They explain that they had opened the lid, and pushed the power button as normal. However, nothing showed on the screen, so they assumed the notebook was dead and went to charge it. The notebook still displayed nothing on the screen. This was the point where they came to me looking for a solution and I notice the light on the power button symbol is flashing. I press a few keys, waiting to see any sign of life, but there was none that came. I ended up holding down the power button to hard shutdown the machine and it turned off. I then proceed to click the button, to no avail. I told them to keep charging the device and I would mess with it today, as I assumed that it was a battery issue. Today the notebook still is not booting at all. I've noticed that when plugged in, the charging light - a dot right next to the cord input - is not even lit. This light will not light up no matter what outlet I plug the charging adapter in. Because of this, I suspect the issue may be worse and might be a motherboard problem, but I have no sure answer or way of finding an answer. I proceed to search Google to find solutions to my problem, only one forum post I've found and it was to hold the power button for 8 seconds and see if it would boot afterwards. That solution did not work. I am hoping that by posting here on the HP forums, I will get some swift advice on how I c... Read more

A couple of days ago my laptop decided not to charge.  I keep it in one spot and haven't unplugged it for a few months, and it's run fine.  I was busy with work so I wasn't able to give this the attention it needed before all the power drained. The hardware is 100% stock; I have not gotten a new battery or new charger.  I have made sure that the outlet I'm using functions.  Since it's used so little/gently, physical damage seems extremely unlikely. Now whenever I try to plug it in and turn it on, no lights or anything.  Occasionally a light will flash and I can get it to try to boot, but it'll power down shortly after the System Recovery screen.  A couple nights ago I managed to get it to boot and could watch Netflix, but sometime later it powered down again. I removed the battery and plugged the charger back in, there was a flash of light and I made it as far as the System Recovery screen again, but to no avail.  Now trying to boot with or without battery, or plugging the charger in with or without battery, does nothing. I have attempted a hard reset as described here, still no lights and unable to power up to BIOS.

I just got off the phone with HP Support and the diagnosis is just as I expected: I have a dead motherboard. I was using my Spectre x360 and all of a sudden I hear a pop and the computer shutsoff. A hard reset doesn't work; plugging in the AC charger elicits no response (no power on, no LED). All these symptoms point to a blown capacitor, which seems to be a reoccuring issue in these forums. I bought this laptop when it was first revealed at over $1000, and now its dead, just a few months after the default warranty expired.

Hi all,

This is my first post here/first Toshiba issue after owning my laptop for about 4 years!

I have a major problem with my Equium p300-190, with a Li-ion battery pack.

This morning, there appeared to be an issue with my power supply. The charger connection would rapidly change from charging and then not charging every second or so.

This continued throughout the day until the computer suddenly turned off.
Now even when the charger is connected, the lights on the front of the computer do not register it as charging the laptop.

I initially thought this was a charger problem, but the computer turned off when on 43% power. I was wondering whether anyone can help me determine whether this is a battery problem, or a motherboard problem, as well as suggested courses of action.

Any help is really appreciated!

A:Equium P300-190 power issue - no charge

> Now even when the charger is connected, the lights on the front of the computer do not register it as charging the laptop.

Does this means that the power LED and AC adaptor LED don?t light even if the AC adaptor is connected?

In such case the new, good working AC adaptor should be connected in order to check if it?s AC adaptor or notebook related problem.

Just for info: I don?t think that the problem is battery since the notebook should operate properly using the Ac adaptor only. Even if the battery is removed and Ac adaptor connected, the notebook should power up?

So either its AC adaptor or notebook?s hardware problem.

I currently have a XPS 12-9Q33 laptop that is not charging. The light at the end of the power adapter is no longer lighting up so it appears to be faulty. I've called Dell to purchase a new adapter but was told that they no longer sell replacements for them and was recommended to buy an adapter from a 3rd party source.
I purchased a replacement with the same voltage and amperage that is supposed to work on a XPS 12. The laptop now powers on but will not charge. The BIOS states that the adapter is unknown and will not allow it to charge.
What can I do now? I find it really frustrating that I cannot get a direct replacement from Dell themselves so I'm stuck with a laptop that is not portable at all since the battery is at 0%

Third party adapters usually do not have required logic circuit to complete the batter charging loop.  It's easy to find genuine, OEM Dell adapters:

So I'm fixing (or trying to fix) a friends laptop. It's a HP Pavilion zv5120us. The problem is that when powered on, the laptop will not accept power from the AC adapter (which should be low voltage DC power when it get's to it right?). It will however charge the battery when the computer is shut off. So it will run till the battery is dead, then charge itself and then you can turn it on again.

Apparently the zv5000s have similar problems like, no battery charge, no power whatsoever and most of these problems originate from the AC jack. I HAVE ALREADY BOUGHT AND INSTALLED A NEW JACK. My soldering was top notch. The problem persists in exactly the same manner. I have also tested the AC adapter. It has a green LED that comes on and with a multimeter it registered something like 40.9 on the 200 setting for AC volts. All these things make me think it's some software problem. Maybe there's some stupid setting that got switched so it won't run off wall power.

If anything triggers a thought for anyone please reply, I want to get rid of this thing.

I have the Dell Power Companion PW7015L (bought through my cost center from Dell retail) and a Del-issued (I work for Dell)l Latitude E7240.  When I charge my Samsung Galaxy S5 phone, things work fine. The Power Companion shows 5 bars for charge level and 5 for battery health.  However, when I plug in my laptop and hit the power button for the Power Companion, the "charging" indicator never comes on, and the "plugged in, not charging" icon comes on for 15-28 seconds, and then goes off (and the screen dims):  apparently the batter disconnects from the laptop, or the laptop disconnects itself.  If I hit the power button on the power companion, the "plugged in, not charging" icon will come back on, and then again go out after 15-28 seconds.  Help!  #IworkforDell.

i don't exactly know where the best place to put this tread is, or if this is even the right forum. But i'll make a post here anyways.

So two days ago my laptop was not able to turn on at all and so i checked the ac adapter and it was beeping so i got brought a replacement from Canada Computers.

So everything after here is with my new ac adapter:

Now it powers on but if the power is connected after the computer starts up then the ac adapter is beeping and the computer no longer receives power but after a random interval of time the beeping stops and computer is charging again.

However if i put in the power line before the computer starts the power line is beeping at first but once i boot the computer the beeping stops and windows shows the power as connected.

Also when i change the Battery Mode in the Lenovo energy management panel the power disconnects and the ac adapter starts beeping again and after another interval of time the power is recognized by windows again and the beeping stops.

As well if i plug out the power supply from the laptop and plug it back in it takes a random interval of time for the power to come and there is also beeping.
So is there anything that i can do to fix this problem.

Thanks,
Harry

Hello!

I have this problem, I occasionally use my USB 3.0 disk drive, and I'd really prefer not to plug it in and out every time I want to use it. But problem is, the disk is running at all times, and even when computer is off, I want it to automatically shut off when not in use. (I have Gigabyte On/Off Charge feature, basically all USB devices get power at any PC power state, if only there is power from the power supply)

I really need help to find where I can set that, but mind that I have a wireless mouse, which used to suffer because of the USB suspend option, it was sometimes disconnecting for a second or so, like lagging.

I am not even sure where to start, so any help would be appreciated, thanks.

If you can run off the power supply, but the battery won't charge, there is either something wrong with the battery, the charger or the charging circuits in the laptop. Possibly the voltage regulator. The power supply could power the laptop and still have something wrong with it.

I'm having an issue where custom battery charge thresholds aren't being respected on my E5550 when I plug my laptop into AC power.
Steps to replicate:
Using Dell Command | Power Manager, set custom battery settings such that the battery will start charging at 80% and stop charging at 90%.
Unplug from AC power.
Discharge the battery to anywhere below 90% but not below 80%.
Plug-in to AC power.
Result:
The battery will charge when the laptop is connected to AC power despite the battery charge state being above the custom 'start charge' point of 80%.
Desired outcome:
The battery should not charge unless it is is below the custom 'start charge' point.

Using V 2.1.1 of Power Manager and the A13 (latest) BIOS.
This looks like a bug in the battery charger firmware to me. Anyone else?

So, my issue that ive looked everywhere for a solution to is this.  I was about to give this laptop to someone and I reformatted the hard drive to clean it up before doing so.  After this I went to dells site and loaded up the drivers for this machine.  All is fine up till this point.  Then I updated the bios to the newest version a12, and all went fine.

Well, later that day I needed to unplug the laptop and go to a different room and It just turned off after I unplugged it.  It wouldnt turn on with battery power either.  Plugged it back in and it loads fine but the battery is stuck on 36 percent charge and says not charging.  Now im getting a message saying the battery needs to be replaced as well, which is *** because I know that the battery was working just fine before this day.  Not only that why wont a battery with 36 percent charge turn on the laptop?  Its got the flashing red battery symbol when powered on with the ac adapter but without the computer on, but still plugged in, the battery doesnt charge or have any lights. 

I have already tried the uninstalling of the acpi trick, as well as the taking the battery out while its running, or taking it out purging the power and reseating.  Ive tried all the common tricks to no avail.  Not sure whats going on but I know this battery was good, and it still says 36 percent but wont charge and wont power the laptop on.  Hope someone can help.

Thanks Gary

A:DELL VOSTRO 3500 BATTERY ISSUE (not charging and wont power on computer with charge) HELP!

First check:  make sure the BIOS (F2 at powerup) recognizes the AC adapter.  If it does not, the battery will not charge. 
If the AC adapter is not recognized, try another Dell OEM adapter.  If that doesn't solve the problem, replace the DC jack:
http://www.parts-people.com/index.php?action=item&id=9935
And if that doesn't solve the problem, replace the mainboard.
If the AC adapter IS recognized, but the battery will not charge, unplug the system, remove the battery and hold the power button for 30 sec.  Try again -- if the battery still won't charge, odds are the battery itself is bad.
If the battery is original to the system, it's about four years old - well past its expected lifespan.

Try to perform power drain and check for the issue, disconnect all the external devices connected to the system, shutdown the system and remove the battery and power adapter . Now press and hold the power button for 30 seconds and connect only battery and adapter and try to power on the system.
 
 Hope this helps. Do post back if the issue persists!

A:Power problem with notebook

A standard ethernet port would suffer only mechanical damage, not electrical damage in my view. Even then it would be surprising as the standard laptop DC jack is smaller than the opening of a network port.

Just tried it here and that is the case, perhaps you could be a little more specific about the nature of the port that you plugged the DC adaper jack into?

The network adapter may be combined with the modem card, or fully integrated with the motherboard. Unsure on that model.

If you have destroyed it somehow that I cannot imagine, then you may need to buy a PCMCIA network card, as repair of the motherboard may be uneconomic (replacement)

In March I posted about a notebook computer that when powered on, it immediately shuts back off within about two seconds, before anything even comes up on the screen. A few people suggested it was probably overheating, which I figured to be unlikely so I never bothered reapplying thermal compound.

I was recently given the notebook to sell on eBay as a laptop in need of repair. I had some extra time on my hands so I decided to take it apart, removed the old thermal compound, and applied some new Arctic Silver to both the CPU and GPU. I put it back together, hit the power button, and the same power issue still persists.

Does anyone have any other ideas? ...or should I just go ahead and sell it as a broken notebook?
Btw, the notebook is an HP Pavilion dv7-3060us.
Also, the battery clearly does not charge while the notebook is plugged in.

Lot of things were not working anymore (Power supply, Internet access, the mouse, USB ports, other stuff). I checked the Device Manager and notice that lots of devices had an exclamation point in the yellow triangle.

I found that the firewall was disabled and that is probably the way the virus got in :-((

I was then asked to reboot for changes to take effect and since then, impossible to reboot.

Help please!!

I just opened the case up to my Sony Vaio VGN S150 notebook attempting to fix a problem with the charge recepticle. (The plug - going into the notebook) would have to be wiggled in place to make a connection to charge the battery). After making an adjustment the notebook now appears to be charging just fine.

However, now it does not power up. When I press the "on" button, the "power on" led light indicator illuminates, my WLAN led illuminates, but the harddrive does not start up and it's LED light does not illuminate. Is there any way I could have knocked a wire loose that would have provided power to the HD?

When I removed the top half of the case, I disconnected the ribbon wire leading from the keyboard, and the smaller ribbon wire that I believe leads to the touchpad. I reconnected both, but since the system does not boot, I have no way of know whether or not these are making proper connections - but I am assuming they are.

Are there any other issues I could be overlooking?

It sounds like the plug in the back of the case is loose - if so, take it to a computer repair shop to see if they can fix it. If it's covered under a warranty, have them fix it under the warranty. Warranty repairs generally will cost several hundred (or more) dollars (they'll replace the motherboard) - the actual repair itself is usually under $100 (for the part and a bit of soldering). I understand that Dells are more difficult to repair than other laptops due to the construction of the motherboard and the manner of affixing the plug to it.

you can see that the adapter chord has one metal stick

its supposed to go into some sort of contraption for that will give a current to the two sticks in the laptop.


also, this item fell out and i was able to charge the computer but had to press hard on the adapter. after a while it stopped charging. iff that info gives any help

This notebook, a gift to my wife, suddenly will not power on.   Pushing the on button does nothing.  When the power adapter is plugged into the notebook the blue light is on so the adapter is working.  I've tried pressing the ON button with the adapter attached, and without.  I've held the ON button for over 10 seconds.  I've pressed the ON and the volume up for over 10 seconds.  I've pressed the ON and the volume down for over 10 seconds.  There are no other buttons on this device. I took it to a local laptop repair facility.  They would not work on it because it is a sealed unit with no obvious way to remove the battery or reset the device. I believe it was purchased, from the HP online store, in late 2013 or early 2014 but without the serial number I cannot check the warranty status. As a 35 year retiree with truly fond memories of HP I am surprised at how hard it is to get simple support.  The support page will not let you get past entering a serial number and this is the first HP device of any kind I have ever seen that does not have the standard HP label on it.  To get support I need the serial number.  To get the serial number I need to power it up.  To power it up I need support.  I detect a loop.

A:Pavilion Notebook power supply :(

8~9 weeks old?? Return it for warranty.
BTW I think what you are referring to is the pw connector NOT the pw supply which is internal.
