Notebook won't charge using designated charger

Q: Notebook won't charge using designated charger

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?

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

The other day when I went to use my laptop there was a pop that came from the charge socket, then the laptop would shutdown if the charger was plugged in. Then the next day the laptop said it was charging when plugged in but the battery continued to drain until it won't turn on anymore. I checked that the fuse hadn't blown in the charger and also opened up the laptop and couldn't see any burns near the charge socket.

Hi All My Elitebook 850 battery recently stopped holding charge.  I took the battery out, and the AC Charger still provided power so was able to use without battery.  I then purchased a new battery.  Now, the AC charger won't show charging on the new battery, but when I take the battery out, I can use the laptop without the battery. When the new battery is installed, it doesn't say anything like "plugged in, not charging," it just says nothing at all.  But obviously the charger works as it powers without the battery in. Have tried uninstalling the drivers in Windows through Device Manager > Batteries > Uninstall Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Battery Method + Uninstall AC Adaptor, with no result.  Turned the computer off, took the battery out, then powered up without battery, uninstalled the drivers, powered back off, reinstalled the battery, powered back up off residual charge in the new battery, with drivers reinstalled, still no luck. Anyone have any thoughts?  Please and thank you. Mike

Well, my HP laptop charger is not working so I tried to charge with a Dell charger I had and it worked.

Now reading in the internet, I read that it might be dangerous especially since I am using less amps than specified. The specs of the 2 chargers are as follows:

HP Charger: 19 V, 4.74 A
Dell Charger: 19.5 V, 4.62 A

I read that the voltage difference should not cause a problem but using a lower Amp capacity charger than the original might. Will this small difference matter or can I still use the charger?

Thanks

Hi. I have a Toshiba Satellite L40. It's kinda old, but I've always been able to get it to work. It's battery is shot, so I've been using it plugged in all the time (which is okay, since I don't move it around that much). It's originally charger went bad a while ago, so I bought a new one from Toshiba (it's a better one, in my opinion since it has an LED indicator).

It's been fine for roughly a year, but suddenly went crazy an hour ago. It stopped providing power (the power supply light on the laptop is off), and the LED on the charger is blinking rapidly. When it's plugged in to the outlet, but not to the laptop, the LED on the charger is a steady, bright green.

But the moment I plug the tip in to the back of the laptop, it starts blinking. Since the battery is shot, I quickly lost power and now my laptop is completely drained and inoperable. I've tried removing the battery and plugging it in, but the same thing happens. Also, when I unplug it from the socket, the charger retains enough power to stay on for a maybe 20 seconds (and it's the same thing: steady if it's unplugged on both ends, blinking if it's still plugged into the laptop, even if it's unplugged from the socket).

Has my charger or laptop gone bad? Or is there just something to fix? I've tried unplugging everything for 45 minutes to let it discharge and cooldown, but no luck. Should I wait some more? Thanks.

This started almost a week ago. I would plug in my charger and it would blink orange but if I took out the charger and re-plugged it in it would charge normally. Currently my PC completely died and every time I try to plug in the charger the light simply blinks a few times and nothing happens. HELP!'

A:Charger blinking orange but computer won't charge

Blink orange is an indication of : The battery has reached a low battery level, a critical battery level , or there is a battery error. Try the following steps Shut down the system and disconnect all the external devices connected to the PC.Disconnect the AC power from the wall outlet. Remove the battery from its compartment.Hold down the Power button for 30 seconds continuously.Now put back the battery & reconnect it to the AC power wall outlet. If the notebook it coming on try performing battery test using F2 diagnosis?s. Turn off you unit ? restart ? keep tapping esc at startup Press F2 from the status up list and perform a battery test. Depending on the results we may suggest you. Please click on the below link to view the steps. http://h20628.www2.hp.com/km-ext/content-webapp/document?docId=emr_na-c01443317

Recently, I disconnected the AC power supply to be able to work elsewhere in the house.  When I reconnected the AC power supply and left the computer on the computer had gone into a hybernate mode.  It did awaken and I could continue until the task was finished.  Again I left the computer on.  When I returned the screen was dark and I assumed that it had reverted to the hybernate mode.  However it would not resume.  I checked the socket on the computer for the light which would indicate that power is being fed to the computer.  It was DARK.  Since the power supply is plugged into a power strip, I checked to make sure the strip was on.  The indicator light remained DARK.  I plugged to power supply into a known live outlet.  The indicator light remained DARK.  Using a volt meter, I found that the AC outlet was good and the output at the DC end of the power supply showed 19.88 volts DC.  At this point I assumed that the Power Jack Cable Harness had broken somehow. Searching the internet, HP support, and HP forum pages revealed no clear solution.  I left a message on "HP Support Forum Home>Notebooks>Hardware>Re: Charging Pin and Power Connector Broken"on 6-20-16 but have had no reply at this time except to offer a phone conversation. Since then, I needed to have access to the information on the hard drive.  Removing the hard drive meant that the top of the computer had to be removed. &nb...

A:Sudden computer failure - won't charge but AC Charger output...

Well, assuming the AC adapter is good (which appears to be the case) then it is either the power jack harness or the motherboard itself. I am a bit confused how the light on the AC adapter brick stays dark when the output is testing OK. I assume you have removed the battery and tried to hold down the "on" button 30 seconds. There are lots of power-related daughterboards like the power button board and it is so hard to test them. Do you have the Manual: Service Manual

Asus u45jc-a1 laptop. My laptop charger cable is in pretty bad shape. You see the wiring broken in the wires on the top part, thus you see the grey wiring inside.


When i charge my laptop recently, the charger would go on and off. Such as charging then not charging. I then took a look and the green light on the laptop charger is green then dims then green again over and over again. So the only way i can fix this issue is unplug the other part of the 2 charger, theres 2 parts then put it back together over and over again then connect it to my laptop. Many times it has same issue. However, few times i would get it to work and thus it would be charging.


However few times it would have same issue where problem arises again. But few times however if i make sure i dont move any part of the laptop charger cable... then it would always be charging which is good and thus working. So i figure it has to be my laptop charger as you see its broken the wiring part and its mainly at the top of the wiring near the place where you plug it into laptop.


Well i then read online that it might be the battery. So I then took out the battery and just connected my charger to my laptop without the battery. Obviously it shows no battery detected... however, the laptop doesn't have an issue with the power going out. Thus it shows green light all the time on the charger.


Does this mean i have to get a new battery as oppose to a charger? First thought was charger is bad since the broke... Read more

I recently bought a wireless 3G USB modem / hot spot. Although i use it primarily by plugging in my PC USB port, It just occurred to me that my smartphone charger also has a USB port. So i was wondering if i can use the modem by using the charger USB port or not. That way i will not have to keep my PC powered on all the time. My charger has a output rating of 5V and 830mA.

So one day I reset my phone due to my phone slowing down, and it would not turn on.
For info purposes I have a Lumia 640 updated to win 10 (originally 8.1)
After this I put it on the charger, it would load the Microsoft logo. then go to the charging screen with plug icon.
This is odd due to being at 80℅ of battery before I rebooted. Often it'll sit there with no result, sometimes it'll reboot multiple times.
If I remove the charger the phone instantly turns off. This has been going on for 5 days. Yesterday when I plugged the phone in it went back to tiles, but when I removed the battery to put my sim back in the issue came back. It also showed 72℅ charged so can't be the battery, and I don't know how that happened.
Windows recovery tool can't see the device and when I choose the find option the fix won't get to the phone. When I plug my Lumia via USB it reboots over and over and disconnects over and over as my computer keeps making the USB sound. The only time this doesn't happen is if i hold volume up or down when I plug it, sometimes, and that just freezes it on the ms logo. When I continue from there the phone will reboot as the installation is loading.
The issue is clearly not the battery. As it's 70℅ or so, yet Iget the 0 charge icon and the phone won't turn on outside the charger.
I have no clue what the solution to this problem is.

My Dell Inspiron 17R 5720 doesn't recognize charger any more. And unfortunately my warranty expired 2 month ago.It was plugged in and working in the morning, but then in the afternoon I noticed that it was running on the battery only. It wont start without battery (just charger plugged in).
1. So here what I have done to debug. Me and my brother, we have purchased the same Dell laptops at the same time a year and a bit ago. This is why for a debugging purposes it was good.I took my charger and plugged in to his computer. And it works. Definitely not the charger issue I guess. And when I plug charger in to my computer, green light is still on the charger. And I have the original charger that came with the laptop.
2. Now, laptop works on the battery only, so this means that motherboard is working. I guess.
3. Next thing I did was unplugged charger and removed the battery from the laptop. Then I pushed and hold "Power" button for 45 seconds to discharge a flea charge. Plugged charger back in but laptop wont start.
4. Next I started laptop on the battery, went to BIOS and checked if the charger is recognized in the BIOS. No, it doesn't recognize charger. So, if it is not a charger then what else can it be?

A:Dell Inspiron 17R 5720 doesn't work with charger. Charger is not recognized. Not charger problem.

Hi CJ777,
Thanks for reaching out with your query. You pretty much figured out all points of failure. Good job.
If the adapter is not detected in BIOS, it most likely is an issue with the mother board. In the BIOS set up, AC adapter should show up as 65w or 90w. If the adapter status is 'None' or 'Unknown Device Installed', it indicates that the mother board is not detecting the adapter for which the battery is not getting charged. Once the battery charge drains, I'm sure the adapter will not charge it again. Replacing the system board should resolve this issue.

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).

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.

Hi Everyone, I'm sorry if a similar question has already been posted here, but I couldn't find it myself. I'm having really weird problems with my brand new Y580. It doesn't detect the charger, and because of this - won't charge. I managed to figure out how to temporarily fix the problem, but it keeps on happening. Long story short: What's wrong: (after applying a temporary fix and the laptop IS charging) when I unplug the charger and plug it back in again, the laptop doesn't detect it (it keeps on draining the battery and does't prompt that a charger is connected). The same happens when I close the lid and open it again - the charger magically disconnects itself. My temporary fix: I somehow managed to get the laptop working when connected to the charger after applying these steps: OS shut downbattery removedcharger unpluggedpressed power button once (just for a second)charger plugged to a different wall socketcharger plugged to the laptoppower button pressed once (laptop boots up)when the OS loads up, battery inserted again As I mentioned, this fixes my problem only temporarily as I can't close the lid or unplug the charger without repeating the same procedure. I'm pretty sure the same thing happens when I simply switch the laptop off from the OS level. I'm using Windows 8 now but the same thing happended when I was on Windows 7. Has anybody had a similar experience? I appreciate your help and advice. Piotr

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.

My company bought these notebooks for some of our products and we install Ubuntu 12.04LTS on them.  When we shut them down and try to charge them it doesn't work.   The light beside charging port is on (like it is charging), but cannot turn on computer after hours of "charging" because the batteries are drained.  It looks like it charges fine when the computers are turned on and charging, but not when we try to charge them without turning them on. We are wondering if this is some known issue and what would be correct procedure for charging these netbooks?

A:HP 210 G1 notebook with UBUNTU doesn't charge battery

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.

I have a set-up that consists of a core i5 CPU, 4GB RAM and a 750GB HDD however the graphics are integrated 'HD4000'. My question is would it be worthwhile installing a recent & full Autocad or full 3D modelling title, my laptop runs windows 8.1. Thanks.

A:Onboard or designated VGA

Most modern computers should be capable of running Autocad, just be sure it is running the DirectX version or later as specified by AutoDesk in the program's System Requirements and has the video memory recommended.

Changing the graphics adapter in a Notebook/Laptop is not easy unless offered as a changeable option by the manufacturer as the adapter is part of the motherboard.

Recently I bought a charger for my HP G61-110SA which was just a replacement adapter. Now yesterday it did something weird. Basically, there are two pictures of the two indicators there are to show whether it is charging, one is on the front and one is next to the port on the side. Basicaally the charger wasnt changing the indicator on the side or the one on screen but the one on the front was working when I turned it on. By default the laptop chages brightness when plgged in but now it sort of brightens a bit (not to the full level as should do) and then goes back to normal. Today the laptop is still doing the same but the front light now only turns on for a few seconds before turning off! I dont know whether it is charging. Is this the laptop or the charger. Any help would be useful, I have attatached the side indicator and the front one

UPDATE: I found a website which said you could turn it off and start without battery but with charger and then turn off and use both. However, I turned it off and removed the battery and it wouldnt charge. Then I put the battery in and it started charging-weird. Also the light on the front doesnt last very long so I am stuck. ANY HELP?

This problem has me stumped. IE will not go to the home page that I set up in the Internet options. And, I noticed that the top banner of the IE explorer window says that Internet Explorer provided by Myspace. I have never seen that before. I have run a good copy of Malwarebytes and am sure there are no viruses on the system. I went to Control Panel and Add and remove programs and uninstalled Internet Explorer 7. I went to my other computer and downloaded another copy of IE and installed it on the computer and it STILL has that crazy banner provided by Myspace. Now, here is the real spooky stuff. The page it always tries to go to is:
Customize Your Settings. After it initially gives me "this page cannot be displayed" I can go anywhere on the web after that. What is this stupid page that it always wants to go to? And, I cannot download IE 8. It always says that the page cannot be displayed. Even in Firefox. Firefox and Google Chrome work properly. IE will not. I sure would like to know why. I have deleted all temp files and cookies and history. Anybody have any suggestions?

Any help would be appreciated

It should be a setup option in the bios. When she starts her machine she should see a message press key to enter setup.
Once in setup go to the standard cmos setup menu.

Should have options there to configure the floppy drive, she needs to select 3.5 and 1.44mb, save and exit.

Hope it's that simple.

Result:

In another macro, I will then want to update each record ID (1, 2, 3, and 4) with the information entered by the user. I figured I could somehow use split to separate and then copy the information down for each split line, repeat with next line, and finally copy the information into my master data set.

I already have the code to copy over the items which are not being consolidated.

How do I set Outlook up to accomplish this???

I know that you can setup Outlook to move messages into folders upon arrival, but the messages are Unread in those folders…this is not what I am trying to do.

Thank you,

How does one install Vista on an already formatted, letter designated hard drive?

Couldn't find an answer or the correct exact forum for this question, so I'll just fire away here and hope for the best....

Let's say someone has a hard drive that is already formatted, letter designated and tested -

For instance -

A brand new hard drive is purchased and tested -

In order to test it, it must be formatted -

To be formatted, a drive letter must be assigned -

Cannot name it "C", as that is the primary drive that the system's operating system is already on -

So the drive is designated as "X" (or just any other random letter) -

Now...

Physically install the above drive in the same physical location as the previous primary drive (that the system's operating system is already on), thus, physically replacing it -

Insert the Vista full version DVD and begin the installation -

Vista asks which drive -

If the new drive, "X" is chosen...

1.) Will Vista automatically change this (above) new drive's letter designation to "C"?

~ or ~

2.) Will Vista just go ahead and install on "X", leaving it's designation as "X", thus, booting, OS, etc. will now all be from from "X"?

A:How does one install Vista on an already formatted, letter designated hard drive?

Hello Joe, and welcome to Vista Forums.

You would just do a clean install of Vista as usual, but select the formatted HDD "X" that you want to install it on during installation.
Clean Install with a Full Version of VistaWhatever OS you startup, it's drive will have the C letter by default. Even if it's not C in another OS.

I have a setup of Ctrl+1,2,3,4,5 shortcuts for switching keyboard layouts on Windows 8.1.
Once I boot up my laptop they work just fine and the layouts shortcuts setup window looks like this if I open it:

However now when I close my laptop, putting it into sleep mode, and then open it again, the keyboard shortcuts stop working and if I open the aforementioned setup window, it also looks as if I have none configured:

To get my shortcuts back after sleep mode I have either to reboot the laptop, or assign the shortcuts again manually.

This is a problem I've experienced before on this same machine (Lenovo Yoga 13) with Windows 8 (before the 8.1 update) and I guess at that time it dissapeared after some editing of the list of layouts I use.

However now I've added some layouts to the list, and then removed some of them and so on and here is what I get again.
Maybe there is some branch of Windows Registry involved with the layouts and keyboard-shortcuts messed up and I could simply remove the registry branch and start with a clean slate?

A:Windows 8.1 is forgetting Ctrl+1,2,3,4,5 shortcuts designated for keyboard layout switching after waking up from sleep mode

Windows seems to overwrite personal layout controls configuration with defaults on some occasions. Hence, the way to have a "permanent" solution basically appears to be rewriting your HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control
Panel\Input Method\Hot Keys with what you have in your HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control
Panel\Input Method\Hot Keys once you've configured your layout-switch shortcuts correctly.
This is in fact an old legacy bug, apparently from the times of Windows XP: https://superuser.com/questions/327479/ctrl-space-always-toggles-chinese-ime-windows-7

Hello fellow techies,
I have a situation with my Compaq Evo N600c battery or something in that directions, so I need possible solutions. My laptop needs to be plugged in at all times, which makes it frustrating because its a portable laptop. If it becomes unplugged the laptop will turn off within 10 seconds flat. I fear that this will, if it hasnt already done so, mess up my electric circuits among other components. Can any of you suggest or recommend options I can use to diagnose the situation. I would like to find out what the problem is, whether I should buy a new battery or some component or prong that I need to replace? Thanks for the feed back!

A:Battery will not charge or hold charge?!?!

Yup, sounds like a battery problem.

First, make sure the battery has a charge. Most laptop batteries have a button on them somewhere you can push that will give you the power level. Alternativly, there should be a utility in windows or the BIOS that will allow you to check the power level.

If the battery has no charge and isn't charging, then replace it with a known good one and see if it will charge up when the laptop is plugged in.

If the good battery won't charge up, then there is a problem with your motherboard.

If the battery has charge but won't power the system, then there is a problem with your motherboard too.

If this is the case, then the best you can do is contact the laptop manufacturer and get them to replace the motherboard.

I had Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit installed on a partition of my 1TB drive. I recently bought a 240GB SSD and installed Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit there. I did a completely fresh install, since I needed to move things around on the original partition anyway. So basically, I put all the drives in (which was probably my first mistake) and fired it up and low and behold, it booted immediately from my original drive, despite the fact that I had set the SSD as the first boot option in BIOS. Grr.. Anyway, I ran the setup for Win 7, hoping that would resolve the issue and I now boot (sort of) exclusively from the new SSD and into the new install of Windows.

EXCEPT... now that I've moved everything off the original drive that I wanted to keep (onto a 3rd drive) I want to delete the old Windows partition and merge it with some other unused space on that drive... but it won't allow me to do that, since the old Windows partition is listed as the System drive, while my new Windows partition is listed as the Boot drive. I can't seem to figure out how to change this.

The other strange issue that I came across... is that I went back into BIOS and removed the option to boot from the old drive completely... and then it wouldn't even boot at all. It kept asking me if I wanted to make a floppy disk of the SATA drivers.

Bill_Ving Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!I read your post about wireless networking poor performance and wanted to help. My immediate guess is that you might have mixed-mode networking going on.  This happens when you have two different PCs networking in two different modes -- one using "G", the other using "N".  The wireless router (or access point) can optimize performance for either mode, but not for both.  So, the "G" mode drags down the performance of the "N" mode PC, but even worse, with the router set for mixed modes, it performs more slowly than with either PC connected by itself.Here are some other troubleshooting steps you can try: HP PCs - Troubleshooting Wireless Network and Internet (Windows 8) | HP® Customer SupportGood Luck========================================================================I am a volunteer and I do not work for, nor do I represent, HP.---------------------------------------------------------------Please click "Accept As Solution" on the post that solves your issue to help others find the solution.Please click the Thumbs-Up symbol on the left of the Reply button to say thanks fopr my help.========================================================================

There is nowhere (at least that I can find) to even choose to password protect the notebook let alone change the password. I'm pretty confused as to what password the notebook could be. The only thing I can think of is that it's asking for the password to my gmail account, which I don't really want to be handing out. Any ideas on this one gang?

New here and so I hope that I am posting in the correct place.
My new notebook an M50-MX5 was in the warranty depot as we thought it had a dvd burning problem, however that was not the case; it was the media.

Anyway before it was sent into the toshiba warranty depot the level 2 tech phone support said to get the computer to be like it was when I unboxed it 2 days earlier, this was last month.
And so to my frustration all of my programs were removed, however before doing this the software techie at the office Ghosted it to my Western Digital Storage Unit and then sent it off to the Warranty Depot.

While it was in the shop I used my 3 yr old toshiba satellite 2410 which I am now typing on at this moment.
I was finally able to get the software tech from the office to reGhost my new toshiba M50 on this past Saturday and left it with him for a couple of hrs and then returned to pick it up as there was not much in the way of programs on it and so it wouldn't take long to Ghost the Images back.

Well, in my Western Digital Storage unit are Ghosts of this 3 year old satellite that I am presently using.
After the techie got my Restore Disk installed and tried to reGhost the image onto the New M50, it crashed.

He was using the wrong Ghost, he was using the one that was from this unit???
I was not happy, especially after he claimed that he now had it Ghosted with the proper Image and I tried it out and it was very sloooooow to Boot. He said it was my Norton 2006.

Something you might want to try (it's a pita) is a repair of windows - this may fix some of the slowness issues you're seeing. The install program he's talking about is probably the U3 component of many larger USB pen drives. I think it's on most of Sandisk's newer large drives. A repair of windows might also take care of this. I seriously doubt that putting the wrong image on the machine and then putting another image on could do any damage to the machine itself - the folks here at my job do it all the time.

We've got a desktop hooked into a linksys B router, and a notebook that accesses the internet wirelessly thru that router. lately we havent been able to get a decent connection with the notebook, and if we've gotten any at all, it gets dropped soon. is the desktop getting the majority of the bandwidth, which is eliminating the notebook from getting enough? if so, is there anyway to limit the amount that the desktop is getting?

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.

Thanks, Robert

My charger only works sometimes and when it does work it's usually because it's pressed against something or my laptop is in a strange position. It seems to be getting worse and sometimes the charger won't work for days. I was wondering if the pin in my charger had broken and I just need to buy a new one? Or is something broken inside my laptop?

does it hurt a PC if you use it all the time as a charger? i have a PC with XP on it. and its about 4 years old. i let my girlfriends daughter use it. and she ask if she can plug her ipod to it to charge. i told her i didn't think it would work. but i told her to try it. she did and it charged it. i just want to make sure it wont hurt the PC. if she does it all the time.
 

A:Using PC as a charger

It may shorten the life of your power supply unit - perhaps by as much as a week. My experience of charging my wife's SatNav though, proved only that it took five or six times longer than it would if charging directly on mains power.

Q: charger

I don't know where I can find a charger for my notebook.I am in Manhattan and I need to turn on my notebook, but I forget my charger in Brazil.What is the store next to me?

A:charger

Hello, Thank you for posting in the HP support forum. You can buy HP original charger from many places.  I suggest you search in Google for PC computer shops in Manhattan. Popular PC stores in the USA are BestBuy.https://www.google.co.uk/?gws_rd=ssl#q=best+buy+in+manhattan As per the HP manual, the adapter for your notebook should be 65W or 90 W. I guess you can take the notebook with you in the store to test it. They look like this (an example) :  Here is some instructions for online purchase >> http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c00520482

I recently acquired an HP x360 Spectre 15t (about 5 days ago).  During charging I noticed that the charger plug is quite warm/hot.  Using a laser temp gun, I measured the hottest point of the plug to be 152F.  The average temp reading seems to run around 128F (scanning different points on plug). Is this normal for thie plug to be running at this temperature while charging? Thanks, WW

Hey guys,
I bought my Dell XPS in June and started using it in July, and I haven't had any problems up until today. When I plug the charger into the outlet the part that goes into the computer doesn't light up, nor does it charge my computer. The wires aren't worn out or anything and I tried plugging and unplugging repeatedly, so what gives?

A:XPS Charger

Unless it's physically damaged, have Dell replace it under warranty.

My lap top charger is muffed up.
Beneath the part that plugs into the lap top, is a tiny spot where you can see the bare wires. How can I fix this myself. To get my lap tops company to fix it requires me to send in my lap top (Which I do online buisness so thats out) or I have to buy a new charger (44 bucks or more).

If it's only the charger plug on the wire, you can get a matching one from Radio Shack and solder it onto the cord.

Welcome to the forum!

Obvious answer is you fried the power input circuit using too high a voltage. Please tell me it was an accident and you didn't use the 30v power supply on purpose.

i have a dell inspiron 1721 and i keep having the same problem with my charger. i get a new one, from dell.com, and it works great for a couple weeks to a month, but after that i get the same message of "the charger plugged in is not a dell 90wat charger, your operating system will run slower, please plug in a dell 90wat charger." When i got this message the first couple of times i just got a new one thinking i did something wrong, and the charger im using right now is not a dell charger, it's a knock-off one that i got for half the price on a discount website. This charger however did the same exact thing as my dell chargers, it worked great for a few weeks then gave me the message about it not being a dell 90wat charger although it is slighty different because this time it says it is plugged in but not charging.

any ideas what is wrong?
 

A:laptop charger help

...It's a Dell.
On that same screen it should say how to disable that message. Sometimes you have to update the BIOS to actual be able to get rid of that message or be able to use non-Dell adapters. Latest BIOS is here: http://support.dell.com/support/dow...-1&impid=-1&formatcnt=1&libid=1&fileid=252216

But if its not charging the battery then there could actually be an issue. Possibly with the charging circuits on the mainboard, or there's possibly something damaging the adapters, like brownouts or surges. Does the jack in the laptop seem loose?
