Q: Stopped recognizing CD-rom/CD-RW/DVD-rom and I possibly battery

I noticed this officially a couple of days after it happened. I believe it happened while setting up a Sony nw-875 and setting up its drivers and downloading the SonicStage software. I noticed then that it was calling the nw-e75 the d:. Then upon further inspection last night the cd drive is not recognized by anything and I have no idea why, no drops or anything. The ediag doesn't recognize it or the device manager. I also noticed that the computer turns off immediately after unplugging, while the battery is old and sucks I would believe that it would have atleast enough charge for me to change seats.

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.)

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 i have a dell inspiron 6400 laptop with windows xp, they system is about 2 1/2 years old.

For some reason the system will no longer recognize the battery even though it is connected fine and working. When i click on the power meter tab it says it is running on ac power and that no battery is installed. I then unplug the AC adapter and the screen dims and all the settings for when battery power is in use turn on. I then check the power meter and it says it is still running on AC power. I have no way of seeing how much power is in my battery or how much time I have till the system just shuts off.

Anyone ever dealt with anything like this before?

Thanks

I suspect that it was because it was unplugged with out going though the Safely Remove Hardware dialog. Anyone know of a way to recover it? XP refuses to see it at all.

I installed the maximum 4GB of RAM into my Dimension months ago, been working fine, now I turn on the computer and it says system memory has changed, press f2 to run setup. I did so but the memory section says fields can't be changed, and when I run the computer now it says it has only 3GB of RAM.

A:Computer stopped recognizing RAM??

Your board probably only supports 3gb of RAM. Thats the issue.

Go to crucial.com, run a system scan and post the results here.

My machine all of a sudden stopped recognizing some, but not all, USB devices. I have several:
- mouse
- printer/fax
- digital camera
- external HDD
The only thing that seems to be functioning fine is the printer. The mouse is not working. When I connect the camera to the machine, it does not see it. Same with the external drive. McAfee and spyware scans found nothing. Rebooting does not help. When I go to Control panel -> system -> hardware [COLOR=blue ! important][COLOR=blue ! important][/COLOR][/COLOR]I don't see any error messages about USB ports etc. What's going on? Thanks much!

For whatever reason, my computer has stopped recognizing whenever I click my mouse. However, this problem seems isolated to only one user as none of the others have any issues.

I've run virus scans but I can't find anything out of the ordinary, so now I'm unsure what to do.

It almost seems to be timed but it always gives out whenever I start up a media file (music, a movie etc.) As you can imagine this is very frustrating as I have to restart my computer whenever it gives out.

The strangest part is that I can still move my mouse as normal and use the keyboard perfectly. Please let me know how I can fix this

One day my main desktop stopped recognizing my external 2.5 HD (uses to 2 usb ports for power). Even in "disc management" its not recognized, but the interesting thing is, all other usb devices work perfectly even all thumb drives.

I originally thought my HD was starting to fail, but later realized it worked on my laptop and htpc. Both computers recognized the external drive w/ no problems 100% of the time.

Things Ive done since:
1.Reformat main desktops HD and reinstall windows 7 (32)
2.Reformatted external HD (did it on the laptop)
3. Tried all usb ports with same result

* In the Bios, under "usb config". The drive IS recognizable. But when windows starts up, nothing happens.
But my main desktop still wont read or recognize my external drive.
Im guessing its my motherboard (Asus P5KC) or PSU thats giving me the problems?

Is my external drive not getting enough power?
Is there any other way to trouble shoot this?

A:PC stopped recognizing my external HD but other PC/Laptops still do

Go to disk management and see if it is recognized there.

Hello, this morning my pc worked fine, I left it alone for a few hours and when I turned it on again my screens were black. The pc is not recognizing my GF8500 GT. I downloaded and tried to install a new driver but the installation software does not recognize the card either.

A:My PC stopped recognizing my Video card

i had that couple times, when my video card came out just enough to not make good connection due to thermal cycling (heating and cooling), it worked fine after reseating the card. If that's not the case, then the card may have failed. Also maybe search Google for "reflowing Nvidia video card" and "faulty nvidia cards". Don't remember details and not sure if your card is affected , since I'm more of ATI guy, but there was a lawsuit and a lot of stink about some Nvidia cards with faulty soldering inside the GPU. Good luck fixing it.

I found one morning that Windows got stuck on the Welcome Screen. Eventually I installed the newest RAID Driver from Intel (instead of the old one from Dell I had) and now I can get into Windows normally. However, the second HDD still doesn't show up either in BIOS or Windows Disk Management. However, it does seem to appear in the Intel Rapid Storage Applet. What should I do?

A:Windows has stopped recognizing my secondary HDD

Hello ayeshaf. Welcome to the forum.

Sorry, more questions than answers:
Are you running (or have you ever run) a RAID array?
Are these RAID drivers a combination AHCI/RAID package, or is there a separate AHCI driver available?
What do you have on the secondary drive? Is the data backed up? If you lost it would it ruin your day?
If you go into the BIOS(UEFI) settings, do you see the second hard drive there?

After about 1 1/2 years my computer ceased to "see" my TDK CD drive. I moved this drive to a lower bay, and it was recognized by the computer and works. In the "upper location" it did not show up in device manager, but did so in the lower location. In this location a different power supply and data ribbon were used So I suspect something like an IRQ conflct, that is a software problem, rather than hardwire like a data ribbon. I suppose there could be something "haywire" with a registry entry. I would appreciate some suggestions on how to go about diagnosing the problem.

Thank you, bmarshall

Hello. My 1300a dvd burner has stopped recognizing dvd media. Windows 98 now sees this drive as cd-rom only. This drive has worked fine for nearly two years without a problem. The other day I tried making a copy of my kids' Dora The Explorer dvd. But having them run around me and bumping into me, I accidently started two instances of CloneDVD, versions 1398 and 2094. After that, the dvd drive got amnesia and no longer remembered how to read dvd media. I uninstalled both versions, physically disconnecting the drive from my pc, reinstalling Windows 98, and upgrading the 1300a's firmware -- still the problem persists. Ironically, the drive has no problems with cd media. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you.

Configure the BIOS boot order to CD before hard disk. Put a known-good bootable disk into the drive and restart the computer. If it boots from the CD, you have a Windows problem. If not, you need to replace the DVD drive.

Recently, my Windows XP machine stopped recognizing my Corsair Flash Voyager drive.

When plugged into a USB port via a Dell monitor hub, it does not recognize it at all (unknown usb device).

When plugged directly into one of the front or rear usb ports, it mis-recognizes it as a "SM324BC memory bar" and says that it is not formatted.

Other machines have no problem accessing the flash drive.

I installed SP3 but it did not help.

Removing everything USB-related does not work as the keyboard and mouse are both USB and the system stops responding as soon as I try that.

Please advice!

Welcome to TSF....

With un-installing the AT&T Yahoo Security Suite something might not have been put back the way it was supposed to do. Give this a try:

How to perform a Repair Installation of Windows? XP.

Two things are needed here, just a bit of old technology, an ink pen and a piece of paper to write down any special settings that might have to be changed back after the repair-installation is completed.

Please Note: Performing a "Repair Installation" in this manner should not delete any Personal Files, it should 'repair' the core of the installation but to be safe with your data you should follow the next two paragraphs.

You might have to remove the hard drive from this computer and install it in another computer as a slave drive and after it is able to be accessed by Windows on that computer you will have to manually backup all of your important data that you have to another media like CD-R's, DVD or external hard drive. Then when this is done return it to the original computer as a master drive on the primary IDE cable. and do the following:

REGISTRY WARNING :

The details that follow require an above-average understanding of the technical topics involved. If you do not understand the Registry material presented here, either find a technically knowledgeable friend or do not attempt to repair your system Registry yourself. Improper changes in the System Registry can render all data on your hard disk inaccessible. :

Here is a link to a registry backup program that is absolutely fantastic it is called ERUNT and you would use this to backup the registry after running the repair-install procedure successfully.

http://www.larshederer.homepage.t-online.de/erunt/

(Remember to always keep a backup of two things: Your registry, and your data. You will never be sorry. ]

(The Windows? XP CD WILL be required for this procedure.)

Just be attentive and follow all of the on-screen prompts.

Just let it do its thing...now when you finally are at the Windows Desktop, power down the computer and re-enter the BIOS and change the Boot Configuration Order back to its original configuration.

I hope that this cures your woes.

Post back with the results, and if there are any other queries/concerns.

My PC suddenly stopped recognizing my camera card to download pictures. I tried restarting my computer, which always worked in the past, the few times that I had problems. That didn't work. I tried plugging in my camera straight to the computer, no luck. Tried another card, no luck. Tried a new card reader, one that you can put a variety cards into, no luck. I have Windows 8. Don't know where to go for the "start" section that was used before Windows 8. Anyone out there have any suggestions?
Forgot to add that when I used the new card reader, something DID pop up. It said it was scanning the card. Then it would say it was finished, and I would click out of it. BUT if it scanned, WHERE would I find the pictures? They were not in my pictures section.

The card appears neither in File Explorer nor Disk Management?

Don't know where to go for the "start" section that was used before Windows 8.Click to expand...

Briefly, pressing the <Windows Logo> key will get you to the Start screen, on which you can search for 'most anything and is an implementation of what used to be called All Programs. <Windows Logo> + x will bring up a Quick Access Menu, which includes a lot of useful things like Control Panel, Command Prompt, etc. You might want to take a quick look at my sticky thread at the top of this forum.

I have an ASUS VS247HR monitor plugged into my pc with a hdmi cable which worked fine, until suddenly my screen went black and it didnt work anymore. I wasnt doing anything with it when it happened. Eventually I got it working with a VGA cable but it doesnt recognize my monitor any longer as an ASUS monitor, it just says "Generic PnP Monitor". I checked for driver updates if that had screwed things up and it did, so I rolled it back but I still have the problemI would really like to be able to use my HDMI cable because VGA lowers my resolution to 1024x768

A:W10 PC suddenly stopped recognizing ASUS monitor

That's strange, according to what I saw in Google the native resolution for that monitor is 1920x1080. I use a monitor with the same native resolution on Win 10 (previously Win 8.1) and it is happy to select that as default without HDMI.It might be worth trying the monitor on another computer to see how it behaves because right now I'm not sure whether it is the monitor or computer that is at fault.Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I'm running an XP Pro on an ASUS mobo. Just about brand new. The hd is a seagate SATA 250gb. I booted up, put trendnet wireless drivers on it, disconnected, put the wireless card in, and then I got the message to "Reboot and Select Proper Boot Device
or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot Device and press a key."

I went into BIOS, changed the sequence to booting up with the hd first, the CD second and the floppy third. Got the same message.

Then I put in the XP CD and got the message that I couldn't repair because there was no hard drive.

Any suggestions would be helpful and greatly appreciated.
 

A:Solved: Computer stopped recognizing SATA HD

Does the HDD show up in your BIOS? I am thinking it did because you changed it around.

Maybe download fresh BIOS settings from InterNET ASUS sight and flash your current settings???

I have a Dell Inspiron 546S, Windows Vista Home Premium, 64-bit OS.

Up until today, I have been able to load photos from my SD memory card through the built in card reader on the tower. I've always had to either put it in just right or wiggle it a touch in order for the computer to recognize the card. Today, nothing works. I've wiggled and jiggled, stuck it straight in, pulled it half out, done the hokey pokey, and restarted the computer. Nada, zip, zilch. I finally used the USB cable and that works. It is not a new card, it's one I've been using all along. Nothing has changed in anyway except the the computer suddenly refuses to recognize the card!

Any suggestions?

Hello,

I browsed the similar inquiries and solutions that concern this issue but I was unable to come to any resolution thus far.

Simply, my problem is that my computer no longer recognizes when an ethernet cable is attached to my computer. At my school there is a wireless network and a wired network and for the past year I've used the wired network because it is so much faster. Unfortunately, a few weeks ago, my computer stopped connecting to the wired network and I've noticed that it no longer even recognizes the plugged in cable. The lights do not power up on the side and under network properties the LAN network announces that there is a cable unplugged...

Like I said, I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the device driver in the manage devices window but this was unsuccessful in solving the issue. I'd appreciate any help or insight on this problem.

Thank you.

My XP Pro machine all of a sudden stopped recognizing any USB devices that I plug in. It seems that the only way to have the machine recognize a USB device is to reboot it with the device plugged in. I tried the reinstallation of Universal Serial Bus controllers that was suggested in http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310575, and I also tried unchecking "allow computer to turn off device to save power" for all the USB root hubs listed in the device manager, but it did not help. Now if I plugin a USB device into a port, I either get nothing at all or a message about the device not being recognize. What else can I try? Thanks!

Yesterday, my system had some update and the day after my speakers topped working.
The device is plugged with plugs and not a usb and there is no driver.
I tried to search for the drivers. But their site says:








Software is not needed for this product.














I tried to search for a solution on the internet, such as uninstalling and updating my driver. Windows 10 did recognize my device in the playback devices category. 
I reset all my windows 10, and now it doesnt recognize that I have an audio input. It does however recognize my steelengine headphones that have a driver for them.
Where is the fault? There isnt much I can do! I unplugged and plugged the speakers.. and there was no result. If windows drivers and manufacturers drivers dont help me.. how can I recognize the device and make it work? or is it a hardware problem and I should
buy new speakers?

If i were in ur situation, i would turn off windows security, and just use Zone Alarm and Kasperskee (dunno how good that is, first time i'm hearing that name). Together, they should be good enough...besides, i personally don't think windows firewall is better than zone alarm/norton/etc.

You should be good.

btw, when you installed your other security softwares, didn't you get a msg saying "Would you like to make this your default [firewall/AV]?" Another suggestion would be to uninstall zone alarm and reinstall it while Windows Firewall is on. See if it detects that Windows Firewall is on and asks you if u want to make Zone Alarm your default firewall (to which you say yes). But that just brings you back to my first suggestion of turning windows firewall off lol.

A:Solved: All my USB 2.0 Ports (and possibly my modem) have stopped working - Help!

The monitor has nothing to do with your problem. Your Ipod charges via the USB so the 5 volts is there. Have you looked into the Device Manager and see if your USBs and modem is listed as a "problem device"? (RIGHT click My Computer choose Properties, then the Hardware Tab then the Device Manger Button. ) Is your Norton up to date?? It must be up to date with the latest macro or viris sig. to make sure you are virus free. You would be surprised by the virus' that slip in and infect systems. While this could be a motherboard failure, I would try removing the modem and the USBs from the Device manager first and see if Windows will set them up on the next boot. You may need to supply a driver for the modem but XP should set up your USBs without any prompts.

Hello HPForums,I realized the battery had troubles when I unplugged my laptop to take it to the bathroom (haha). I turned off inmediately. So I checked for the battery to be well connected and it was OK. When I removed it, i found this gummy yellow substance that smells sweet on one of the sides. It was both in the battery and on the slot.(See photo attached).  Battery is PI06 manufactured on 2013. The battery doesn't work but the computer do knows it is plugged in. Is there a fix? And what was the cause of this leak? I handle my computer really carefully and don't leave it plugged often. Thanks!f

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.

Hi. I was recently using my laptop, when I wiggled the power cable a bit and suddenly the laptop stopped charging. I have a bad feeling the battery has died or something. I tried using another power cable and that didnt fix it (so I dont think the cable is a problem).

Is there anything else I can try before resorting to buying a new battery?

I have a Toshiba Satellite L750 laptop. Works fine for sometime and then the orange LED lights start blinking and then the battery stops charging and laptop shuts down once the battery drains. When I notice the blinking orange LED light if I remove the power cord and reconnect, then I dont have the problem for some time and then reappears. When the orange light blinks the Toshiba PC health monitor shows 0% system power consumption, Battery condition good. I don't think its a problem with the battery because I already bought one. Can anyone help me solve this problem?

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 ...

Once I plugged in charger while my notebook was turned off.
It lighted Plug LED and Battery LED was blinking after 3 seconds.

I reinserted battery and it charged fine.
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.

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!

After a round of Windows updates, I went to turn on my laptop and recieved the "Primary internal battery (601)" error.  After this screen, however, Windows would not load.  I have tried taking the battery out and 'draining the charge',  and starting up the computer plugged directly to AC with no battery.  Windows still does not load.  The start-up test in the diagnostics menu said the battery needed calibration, however when I go to run the battery test, it gets to "waiting for battery to charge" and exits out of the test without giving me any results at all.  Currently when turning on the computer I no longer get the "primary internal battery" error, it just goes directly to a black screen with blinking cursor.  Any help is appreciated, I'm completely at a loss here!

Battery Issue - Lenovo V570 (Laptop) - Battery Model L09S6Y02

First off I for the most part do not use the battery. It is normally detached from the laptop. I only attach it to periodically charge it and test prior existing charges' performance.

O.K. here is the problem. I attach battery attachment, computer does not make it to the window screen more often than not. When it does, it freezes at the please wait loading screen.

I rarely use the battery at all, but I want all my equipment up and functional. It's life should still be good for I periodically recharge it. I think since I've had the laptop I've only recharged it a total of 6 or 7 times and that's been a year or so.

I, for the moment at least have the battery working power adapter attached. What did I do? I uninstalled Avast (freeware version) ?

I learned from prior experience that running two of any system utility software can cause problems, but it normally restricts itself to what it is protecting. Then I remembered: "If you remove the possible whatever is left however in probable must be the truth."

Next phase of testing is test the battery on it's own.

A:Windows 7 ACPI doesn't detect battery but battery is working

I had a problem similar a while back. Try this
1.Shut down the laptop
2.Take out the ac cord and the battery. Hold down the power for about 10 seconds to remove electric charge in the capacitors.
3.Put the battery back in and reboot.
4.Start windows normally, and See if the battery is recognized.

Ok this might be easy..it might not (COMPAQ M2105)

I ended up replacing my motherboard for a model with more features (SD readers blah blah).

I took it all apart and put it all back with the new board in...now when i go into windows (and even before while booting)...the orange lights would come on for a second...then beging to flicker

while in windows...it just will either not charge the battery..or flicker from AC to battery

i CAN power the unit on with the battery alone, and i CAN power the unit with the cord alone...

lastly, my old motherboard (which had a HD connector problem)...still WILL charge the battery...so i'm sure its not the battery...i don't think...

i also dont' think its the AC adapter since it is the same piece I used on both motherboards.....

what to do................
 

A:compaq M2105 laptop - battery will not charge, flickers from AC/battery

Hopefully you are experienced in working on and repairing laptops/notebooks... and you carefully handeled the replacement motherboard and didn't damage it. Repairing laptops takes considerable skill and caution.

It does sound like the "new" motherboard is bad unfortunately. How did you handle the "old" operating system restore to the "new" motherboard?

It's so strange. Today when I turned on my laptop, suddenly, there was a message that my battery has problems so the computer might shut down suddenly. I tried different strategies, like uninstalling the battery driver, or letting the computer completely die. When it turned off itself at 6%, I turned it back on, and it was at 2 minutes battery life. Then in a few minutes, it said 4 minutes battery life for 6%. Now, it's passed an hour, and it says 3 minutes, but changes sometimes to 1-4 minutes. The battery meter is completely wrong, and I don't know what to do since it is closing the computer way too early. I'm still not sure what the problem is. Please help me.

Hey @EnigmaDimirti, Welcome to the forums. I'm here to help. I would strongly suggest Testing and Calibrating the Battery. Should that not solve the issue, I would suggest calling in for support to see about replacing the battery, as it should not be displaying "no battery is pluged in" when you run a battery check. Please use the following http://www.hp.com/contacthp and create a case for your issue and contact HP. If you live outside the US/Canada, please click the link below to get the contact information for your region.http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/ww-phone-assist.html If this helps, please hit that Thumbs Up, and Accept as Solution. Cheers,TechSurge.

A:Bought a new dell battery and still my laptop battery doesn't charge!

Hi Utkarsh. I Actually FIXED this problem months back. and I exactly want to help you on this so that you can fix it yourself too..
the problem which is creating your battery to show an exclamatory mark is your power settings.
so follow these steps to get rid of that sign and a perfectly working battery.
1) Click on your battery icon (left click) you should see an option called " More power options" at the bottom of the popup.
click "More power options"
2) Now you will be taken to your control panel where you can see all of your power plans and under each plan, you will see an option called "Change plan settings"
3) Click on "Change plan settings" for your active power plan. Now you will get redirected to another control panel window, where you can see two kind of power options to get adjusted. that is, when you battery is plugged and when your battery is unplugged.
4) Don't touch those options, just click on "Change advanced power settings" at the bottom left of that window. THIS IS THE AREA WHERE WE NEED TO FIX!
5)After you click on "Change advanced power setttings", you will see a POWER options popup, go to the bottom and then you can see something called "Battery" with a plus sign on the left. click it.
6) Now you just have to change the levels for the following values
                   --> Critical battery level ( you can change it to 10%)
                   ---> Low battery level ( you can change it to 20%)
Now once that's done, YOU WILL NO LONGER SEE THE EXCLAMATORY MARK ON YOUR BATTERY!!!!
So I hope this works!
Reply me back when you've succeeded fixing it.

I have just replaced my CMOS/BIOS battery today, as , I have faced some critical problem regarding regular BIOS date/time reset after system shutdown. But I want to know how do i recognize, that my new batter is totally ok or functional.

Battery Meter gadget shows that "battery Not charging"
Is it a gadget problem?

Is there any method available so that I can track that my new installed CMOS battery in PC is working fine?

Please help me.

A:Battery Meter shows CMOS battery not charging

The battery you have replaced is solely there to maintain the clock and other BIOS settings (if you have changed them from their defaults). It will not prevent you from booting your system if it is dead/missing; all it means is that you will have to enter the BIOS each time and make the correct settings and time. This battery is not rechargeable.

Do you still have to enter the correct time, or is the BIOS maintaining this now you've changed the battery?

I am new at this stuff and I seek help from all those who can give it. Ok so my first charger stopped working and I bought a new charger. The charger worked great for a few months after purchase. Until one day the charger stopped charging on and off. I unplugged it a few times and then it stopped working. I let the battery die after. I am guessing that it stopped working because i may have screwed up the charger socket by tripping on the cord thus pulling on it im not really sure anymore. The laptop is in a bad condition, it's four years old i think but it can still run. The battery is the same not change. HELP ME for I am an *****

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.

User comes in my office and lost the battery clip. The clip you use to release the battery. When i use a pen to open the clip i can eject the battery and reseat it, but the laptop will not boot from the battery and will not charge the battery. Is there a way to make the laptop know the battery is present without the lock clip? and how does this clip work? I think this notebook can work fine the next couple of years. Or is anybody has a battery clip for the hp probook 6550b, i will be pleased if you can send it to me, i will pay for the stamps ofcourse.
