I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Recovery stopped because of battery/AC power palm

this may sound silly , and my suggestion cant be good for the laptop (so is pouring coffee into it tho )
but i have had experience with pouring bottles down my keyboard
so my suggestion is to turn on the heating and putting the laptop with the hole to put the power cable in downwards and keep it above the heating for a day , or over night
dont go extreme with the heating just nice and warm
it may solve that issue but im sure there will be many more ...

The power meter has stopped recognising the main battery although it recognises and reports on the secondary battery (the one that replaces the CD Drive). The indicator light registers that the battery is present and if it is fully charged on not.

Any suggestions?

A:Tecra M5 - Power meter has stopped recognising the main battery

Sorry mate but what notebook model you have exactly?

What system is running currently?

Did you install some updates which could affect the battery status?

I have a Palm Pilot M505. When I recharge it, I check the home page to see the battery gauge. For the past 3 weeks, it's been showing about 95% full, but never 100%. The battery gauge indicates usage, but doesn't reach a full load anymore.

Any ideas?

Are there any Palm programs that will give me more info on the status of the battery?

How long should a fully charge Palm Pilot last?

I'm planning on replacing the archaic battery on my Palm IIIc PDA. Will I lose the information I've inputted over the last 4 years once I disconnect the old battery? I was going to connect the new Li-Ion battery within 30 seconds of disconnecting the old battery.

I have a strange issue. I have a Lenovo T60 laptop and I am experiencing problems with the power management/power guage.

It will often show the battery not installed (power gauge is a greyish-white color with dashed lines) or it shows a red X. It does not matter if I am on AC power or on Battery power, it will show the full range of power, battery level, not installed, or an error.

I have searched Lenovo's site and I seem to remember seeing an FAQ about this, but now that I need it, I cannot find it.

What can I check or do to stop this? While it is annoying, I am not sure if I am having a battery problem or not. I did check my battery on Lenovo's site to see if it was recalled and it is not.

I do appreciate any help that any one can give me.

Thanks!

After my friend's laptop wouldn't run on battery power OR charge the battery I tried many "fixes."
 
Shockingly none worked that I found.
 
Only one thing worked for me to my surprise.
 
A last ditch effort was to open up the laptop (sony pcg-81114L) and disconnect the cmos battery for a few minutes to reset the CMOS.
 
To my surprise, when powered on, the battery instantly showed it was charging AND when removing the power plug the battery POWERS the laptop now! (and I'd thought I was wasting my time.)
 
Worked with an off brand battery also.
 
Many times this has saved many computers that have odd "unsolvable" things wrong with them.
 
Surely someone else has done this also but I haven't seen it posted anywhere to my knowledge.
 
Thank GOD for bringing the idea to remembrance!

First, my t400 would only boot with power cord unplugged. Then it stopped booting altogether. I read to press the power button 10 times and hold it on the tenth time and to unscrew the palm rest to unplug the little battery for 30 seconds. That is the only way I can get it to boot now. I picked up a new regular battery today thinking it might be related but that hasn't solved it. Any ideas?
 

A:thinkpad t400 wont boot w/o reseting little battery behind palm rest

I looked at it closer and to get it to start i don't press the power button at all. I unplug the power cord and after unplugging the CMOS battery for awhile i just plug the power cord back in and it starts up. The first thing i see as it starts up is an error message about a bad CMOS checksum and then i have to change the date/time in the BIOS or it yells at me to do it. After all that it boots into windows 7. Once it is in windows no matter what i do to change the settings of what the power button does it still doesn't do anything. I can restart it fine but once i shut it down it the CMOS battery needs to be reset to get it going again.

Recently I noticed that the amber LED on my HP Probook 650 G1 flashing constantly, even when the laptop is powered off.   The System Tray battery indication is 100%, fully charged, when on AC power and 100% on battery power shortly after undocking.    I find the Probook won't power up if AC power is not available (no response when pressing power button) but remains powered when I remove it from the docking station.    Have the electronics that control this LED flashing and power up when not on AC gone bad?    Is this an indication of other failure? thanks

A:Battery - Vista is not able the retrieve the power options for the battery

Hi

To be honest I have no idea what you are talking about.
The Vista power options are a part of the Vista OS and you don?t need to install anything.

But on Toshiba notebook the Vista power option would be extended by some Toshiba power options.
Are you speaking about this Power Saver options?
If yes, then I would recommend reinstalling the VAP (value added package) because these power options are a part of VAP.

what do you suggest? thank you

A:i have a lenovo edge 15 model80k9. led power light is blinking but computer will not repond. no power up . the battery is "s

Try the following...

1. Take out (or take it off) the charger.
2. Next take out the battery
3. Now hold down power button for 20 seconds and then rinsert battery.
4. Now put it on the charger again

NOTE: Make sure charger is plugged into the main power supply (not an extension cord, surge protector, etc.)

Sometimes, when the device is not plugged in directly, it doesn't get the power it needs. Holding the power button, while you restart it, clears out the temporary ram (no it won't delete anything you have saved) and will give the device access to the ram it needs.

Hi. Im new on this forum, but I have a problem with my Inspiron 1545 laptop from Dell pre-loaded Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit (although I did re-install several times with OEM OS restore disc). Money is tight for us now, so my AC power jack on the side of my laptop (or the end which connects to the jack) is damaged. I don't know what it is or how serious it is. Once for a while we had to protect the cord from slipping out using duct tape. The only thing I really know is that the coded white rim on that end of the cord, a very small part of it is chipped. And my battery needs replaced, do I need to still fork over an expensive sum for a brand new one?

You often trade off quality for price.

Sounds like a major failure in the laptop.

You can buy adapters for laptop HDD to Desktop IDE drives, quite cheaply. That will allow you to access the files on the hard drive.

USB cases are also quite reasonable for laptop hard drives and give an easy way to access the drive.

I reset a second time and the battery was charging and the laptop would run off battery power. this soon stopped working. I continued to troubleshoot. i got it to charge again and run off battery power but now it will again not run off battery power. the battery is now at 74 percent so i know at some piont charging was happening. this is very frustrating.

One day I was using my NB200 and it run out of charge, I plugged in and same thing happen but even after reinserting battery it won't start.

Plugging in it for long time doesn't heats up battery nor notebook. I can only start it without battery plugged in. Inserting battery shuts down PC after 1 seconds and LED of battery again blinks after 3 seconds.

What does it means? I tired putting battery in fridge because I read on internet it might fix but no luck.

Any idea how can I fix it.

A:Battery suddenly stopped working on NB200-10z

Hi

First of all you have to know that the notebook should run properly without the battery but with connected AC adaptor.
Even if the battery would be faulty or empty, the connected AC adaptor should supply power and you should be able to power up the notebook.

In case this isn?t possible, I assume an power supply electronic malfunction.

However, you could test the following workaround:
Try to power up and to boot the notebook without the battery.
Then go to device manager and uninstall the following entries under batteries:
- Microsoft composite battery
- Microsoft ACPI compliant control method battery

Then reboot the notebook.
Power OFF again and insert the battery.
Power On the notebook and check if the unit would run properly.

Of course it would be also recommend testing the notebook in connection with another good and tested battery.

A:Thinkpad Battery Suddenly Stopped Working

Hi Dan and welcome to TSG.

I assume your Thinkpad's warranty has run out.

It could be a problem with the motherboard power circuitry but that would be expensive to fix.

As the charger looks ok the easiest and cheapest thing to do is to try a new battery.

Sorry I can't be more specific.

Hello, I have a Dell Precision M4500 laptop which stopped recognizing the battery a couple months back. I have had the laptop for one year now with absolutely no problems up until this happened. I am pretty sure the battery is still good, it's not that old, but since the computer wont even recognize it is in, there's no way to check if it can charge. I am running Windows 7 64 bit. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated, maybe there is a fix before I have to shell out the money for a new battery.

Laptop batteries go bad any time, and they are considered to be "consumable" like paper is to a printer. Replace the battery and you should be okay

Hi dianerowley,
My name is Krishna and I work for the Social Media and Community Team at Dell. It appears that the power plan has been changed to "Balanced" or "Power saver". Try changing it to "High performance" and see if it that works.

For this, open Power Options by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, and then clicking Control Panel. In the search box, type power options, and then click Power Options. Under Select a power plan, click Show additional plans, and then click High performance.

A:P50: No Power without battery

Thank you for sharing your experience that when the battery is removed from your P50 ThinkPad and set in airplane mode, the system is unable to run the system on AC power.
 
The reason this setup does not work is because when Airplane mode is enabled, the 135W AC adapter acts as a 65W AC Adapter by design. Since the P50 requires more power than 65W, and expects to make up for that in Airplane Mode from the missing battery, the system will fail to power on.
 
Here is a Lenovo Service TIP that discusses Airplane Mode: https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/documents/ht100574

A:How can i power a fan off of an external battery?

You wouldn't be able to use a small battery like a off the shelf 9 volt. A standard fan could drain one in about 5 minutes. If you really want to I'd assume you'll need to use a lantern battery of something.

Hi & Welcome, shujasmalik!

You probably just accidentally removed it from your system tray, so here's how to recover it properly:

Step 1: Locate your system tray (THIS is your system tray)
Step 2: Right-Click on it and select "Properties".
Step 3: You should see around 4 tabs, locate the third from the right called "Notification Area".
Step 4: You should now see a groupbox called "System Icons" and check "Power" (THIS is the groupbox)
Step 5: Click "Apply" then "OK".

When working on power supply only (with battery removed) I must unplug it and plug again to fix the issue. Everything works fine if I power off the computer using power button at any time, then I can just press power button and laptop switches on.Because this model come with FreeDOS pre-installed I'm currently using Arch Linux on it.

Hello SOCxMustang and welcome to TSF,

Are you talking about a setting in Windows?

Your Windows power plan settings should have no effect on the computer powering on.

What brand/model is your laptop?

When the power adapter is plugged in, does the charge LED light up?

I upgraded to 8 a few days ago (doing a clean install by usb after downloading Windows through the Upgrade Assistant) and everything about Windows 8 itself is great! Except that my battery-duration is really suffering. Before (and by before I mean, that same day, but using windows 7) I used to have like 6 hours of battery duration, sometimes topping at 8 hours with the energy saving plan. Now I'm lucky if I have 3 hours using using the energy saving plan. What I find the weirdest is that switching between energy plans doesn't gives me any gain.

Anyone noticed something like this on its laptop?

Since I don't use my computer as much anymore, I've noticed that when I put it to sleep and leave it idle with the power cord unplugged, it shuts off after 5-6 days. When I boot it up following this, it's obvious that it just powered out, it didn't shut down. I put it to sleep like most people and I don't want to keep the cord connected all the time, since it will kill my battery in the long term, nor do I want to worry about un-connecting and re-connecting when I'm not planning on using it.

My question is: if I put it to sleep and the battery level gets low, is there a way to program it to hibernate instead, or at least shut down safely? I've checked advanced power options and the answer doesn't seem to be there.

A:Disable power off while on battery

I don't think so. If it's in sleep mode Windows isn't running so those settings don't come into play anyway.

Except if I enter bios then the battery keeps charging.
Just wondering if anyone knows a setting or conflict that would keep laptop from switching to ac from battery?
Or could there be something in msconfig that I could check?

I have a problem! who knew. When I have the battery installed in my gateway M505 my computer only runs at around 600-800 Mhz. It's built to run at 1.4G, which it does, BUT only when I remove the battery. Here's the thing that ticks me off, the battery is reading 0% in power settings utility in XP. So I run the comp off AC with the battery installed. I expect it to run at normal power settings. Also the battery charge indicator will not come on when I have AC power hooked up. My drivers all seem to be right, but there has to be a problem here somewhere. I already have a new battery on order and on it's way, but how I get the comp to run at 100% CPU power while on AC with a battery installed. And is there possibly a problem with the laptop that's causing the battery to not charge?

Hey i was wondering is there a gadget out there that can imitate a 9v DC through batteries.
I have just purchased some wireless headpones and it would be great if some product could do that.
thanks,
BRIAN
 

A:Power Gadget: 9v dc to 9v battery

Wireless headphones usually carry their own, often rechargeable, batteries. Are you really having to drag around a lead from a power supply? If you are having to use a trailing power lead because the headphones do have an internal battery which is defunct, you should replace that battery and NOT connect an external one.
Batteries supply DC (direct current). If your headphones really do not have an internal battery, presumably there is a socket on the headphones which accepts the current power lead. You can easily make up a connector to a battery. First you need to identify the exact size and type of the socket on the headphones so as to match it to the correct plug. It will probably be a "DC Power" type.
Having obtained the correct plug, you solder it to leads to the correct battery connector. It is ABSOLUTELY vital that you connect the two with correct polarity, so that the headphone socket positive terminal goes to the battery positive and the negative to the negative. It you get it the wrong way round, you are likely to see smoke and dead headphones after only the briefest contact, especially if you use a rechargeable battery.
It would also be a good idea to find what current the headphones draw, so that you can choose a big enough battery not to have to change it every five minutes. Rechargeable versions of the little 9 volt transistor battery (old nomenclature PP3) typically have capacities of 110 to 200 mAH. That means that if the headphones draw between 11 and 20 milliamps on average, you would get 10 hours use from a fully charged battery respectively.

Then try a good know battery pack in the original computer.
If the original battery works properly in another computer and the known good battery does not work in the original computer then the battery charging/AC switch module

One year later I m back with another problem I just hope this is the correct forum I purchased the laptop I m using about two years ago For those two years I have never removed the battery but have used AC power nearly always with the exception of a few quick trips and a couple of hours once every week or two Initially the battery lasted about hours on a good day with Wi-Fi enabled A few weeks ago that was reduced seemingly instantly to about - minutes Upon doing some research which I should ve done when I first got the laptop I m pretty certain that the battery is about to kick the bucket What worries me though is how the laptop seems to be becoming increasingly hotter these past few weeks Despite AC power won't on Laptop battery. run without the fact that my battery hasn t been involved in any recalls the Laptop won't run on AC power without battery. paranoid side of me is hesitant about leaving it in for much longer For now however being able to afford a new battery is up in the air that s a nice way of saying not an option So I attempted to remove the battery and use only AC power About three seconds after I turned the laptop on it shut off Upon a second and third try it wouldn t turn on at all I let it rest for about minutes and tried again it lasted long enough to show the Windows XP logo ten or so seconds and again shut off I popped the battery back in and it turned on without a problem So I m left wondering what s wrong Has my laptop become dependent on battery power How if possible can I resolve this Seeing as how - minutes of mobility is absolutely useless to me I m not comfortable keeping the battery in for much longer and risking this increasing amount of heat turning into a big problem If they re at all useful here are the specs for the battery and the laptop Toshiba Satellite M -S Intel Celeron M processor GHz quot diagonal WXGA display MB DDR SRAM GB RPM HDD DVD SuperMulti Double Layer drive b g wireless Microsoft Windows XP HomeClick to expand Li-ion BATTERY PACK Model NO PA U- BRS DC V mAHClick to expand Also here s an idea of the daily usage of the laptop I m normally on it for an average of or so hours a day and leave it in standby when not in use I don t usually run large programs normally I m running Pidgin Firefox and xplorer as well as AVG Free and Windows Defender with Wi-Fi enabled If you d like to any additional information just ask Any help or advice is appreciated nbsp

A:Laptop won't run on AC power without battery.

I've seen a number of laptops that won't run without the battery, so I'd say that could be normal. A laptop shouldn't damage the battery pack with it plugged in continuously. My wife's laptop has been plugged in most of the time for a year, the battery is just fine. The charging circuit in the laptop should not overcharge the battery.

If the laptop is getting hot, you might consider blowing the dust out of the fans, which is a major reason for overheating of laptops.

Ive got a packard bell sj51

The problem is :

When the laptop is plugged in (charging) it runs fine and processor load never increases above 82% while browsing webpages and everything works smoothly. However when i use it on battery power , even with the High Performance battery plan task manager shows 100% usage of processor while streaming youtube , loading forum threads etc. Even if i have a youtube video playing in the background while im browsing something else the sound starts to lag and the laptop gets really slow and non responsive.

I am not even sure if i have the correct drivers for my laptop but i can't find any drivers for Packard Bell SJ_51 , especially not for Windows 7 64-bit.

A:Gets slow on battery power

Hey man! I had this same issue on my HP laptop. I noticed that after plugging to the power again, everything would work fine again after few minutes. So I decided to check the advanced options of the power plans, and noticed that cooling policy was set to passive when using battery. That was overheating the processor, what makes it run really crappy. I just set the cooling to Active again and now i can work normally using battery. I hope it solves your problem.

Various problems have now arisen on my HP laptop. 1. The laptop won't turn on if the AC adapter is plugged in, but will turn on with just the battery. It then runs fine if I plug the AC adapter in. However, 2. I get a 'Battery not detected' error message, when the adapter is plugged in but not when running on battery power only. 3 The battery does not charge while the adapter is plugged in, Hence my battery is down to 20% now. 4 I have tried using a different battery from a friend's laptop and get the same effect so I don't think it's my battery. Help please! 

A:Battery and power up problems

Dear Customer,  The issue could be with the A/C adapter or the Charging  Port of the laptop. Please try with another working adapter, if the issue persists, as mentioned its the charging port failure ,where you connect the charger. I recommend you to Contact HP Technical Support over the Phone for further assistance.

A friend asked me to look into why his Aspire One (P1VE6, 722-0879) doesn't power up. The transformer is putting out 19v so I assume it's okay. But with the transformer plugged into the netbook there's not a flicker of life after pressing the power button, regardless of whether the battery is installed or absent.  One possibility is that the battery is dead, and a battery must be present for the netbook to power up. Can anyone confirm if a working battery must be present for an Aspire One to power up?  Thanks.

Here's a strange one:

On my Thinkpad R31, if it is plugged into an outlet, XP hangs on the splash screen, it even hangs on all safe modes. If I unplug it and let it boot off the battery, it boots perfectly fine. Once it's booted, I can run it off the adapter without a problem. The adapter charges the battery fine, and the battery holds a charge for a little over three hours of light use (web browsing, word processing).

Any ideas as to why it does this? I've tested it several times and it always boots without a flaw off the battery, but never off the adapter. I don't even know what to begin with here its so strange.

Thanks,

Joe

BTW, it stops at mup.sys when booting in safe mode.

A:HP recovery backup - restoration stopped at 0%

Hi xangel. . .

Welcome to TSF - Vista.

Is there more to that log file than you pasted in the post? I ask as you mentioned that you waited for hours... yet the log time span is only 1 min 5 sec. It ends with an entry that a thread for restore has been opened. What happens after this?

I'm looking for additional clarification of what it is that you are trying to do here, please. You obviously can boot into Vista and log on. Do you want to restore the system back to HP factory settings?

While in the HP Recovery Manager, it asked you at 14:08:10 what types of files you wanted to restore. What option from the screen shown below did you choose - or was it different?

I would say it is most likely a battery issue if it is original, there is circutry in all laptop batteries that control charging and discharging and for safety. My guess would be start you search here, the battery is probably due for replacing anyways. If the adapter can charge it off then the adapter should be OK.

How old is the HP? If its been a few years since you bought it, you might try re calibrating the battery from the BIOS, most HP and Gateway computers have a utility inside the BIOS for calibrating the battery. If not, let me know and I'll see if I can find one.

Yep, it's the broadcom driver all right.

Have you tried the broadcom site for the latest driver:

Hi all,

In XP, we had the option of executing a script when the computer switched from AC to battery power, and also when the battery reached a critical level. This was extremely useful because I had a special script run to send an email that the power had gone out and then hibernate the computer when it reached a critical level.

In the Windows 7 power options screens, I see no such options. Were they removed? If so, wtf?

I have an NV7802, original battery. Windows 10. Last night I noticed that the battery was not charging whike plugged in. I removed the battery, plugged the adapter in no power. Purchased an adapter this morning, battery charges for about 10 seconds. Battery is now dead and laptop will boot up when plugged in with the battery installed, lets me logon and then shuts off with no lights on the front panel. I think this a windows problem and I have notified them also.

This is definately a hardware issue. This laptop will stay on only for a few seconds, and then sometimes for even less. I plug it in press power, it powers up and appears to start working than it suddenly shuts off. I was thinking maybe a power supply, but because I have never changed a laptop power supply, I thought to inquire here to see if anyone might have some advice. All help appreciated!

Thx
 

A:laptop won't hold power, could it be battery??

power supply or battery. Shorted battery could cause the problem but so could a bad PS. You need a voltmeter to tell which.
