Hi again, I checked the charger again and it seems that it's not working when I unplug it a plug it back in. If I get the charger working and close/open the lid or restart the machine, it is still working fine. Any ideas why unplugging and re-plugging the charger makes it unavailable for the laptop? Piotr

Asus u jc-a laptop My laptop charger cable is in pretty bad shape You see the Battery Doesn't Laptop Charge, Problem? Charger or wiring broken in the wires on the top part thus you see the grey wiring inside When i charge my laptop recently the charger Laptop Doesn't Charge, Charger or Battery Problem? 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 charger theres parts then put it back together over and over Laptop Doesn't Charge, Charger or Battery Problem? 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 broken wiring in certain places and thus its in not so good condition but it has zero problems with power when battery is taken out and im plugged in Im going to most likely get another charger as this one is pretty bad condition but curious if the battery might be the issue

A:Laptop Doesn't Charge, Charger or Battery Problem?

The charger also provides AC power so doubtful that's the problem. It could be the battery or the charging circuit on the motherboard. Former is usually less than $100 to replace but the latter is much more.

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.

Hello,I have a big problem with my 5400, after changing the hard disk for a bigger one and realizing it wasn't detected by the bios, I decided to reinstall the previous one. Now the computer doesn't start windows and it doesn't load the windows dvd from the dvd reader. I've tried to boot from a usb drive but it seems the usb ports aren't detected by the bios.I've noticed that the dvd driver and the hdd is not detected for the bios if the sata mode is set to AHCI but they are detected when  "compatibilty" mode is set.I've also tried to get into the diagnosis utility but I'm getting this weird message:BPF Version Check ErrorWhat's this?After showing the message, the computer restarts and I can't access the utility.If anyone has some info regarding this, I'd appreciate it.Thanks.

I have a problem with my Compaq Presario 2500 laptop power supply. It works fine on AC power, but the battery does not charge/kick in at all. As a result, it would automatically shut off if the power connection at the back is disturbed/loosened.

I have bought a new battery, but it would not kick in either (in case the AC power supply is disturbed/moved). Hence, I keep on loosing my work due to accidental switch offs.

Please help.

My laptop seems to be completely out of charge, and the only way to use it is to plug it in. If it becomes unplugged, then it immediately shuts off. I am running Windows 8 Pro on a Samsung Series 9 Notebook (P900X3B). It is not a fresh installation of Windows, it was updated from Windows 7.
The battery indicator in Windows 8 states that the battery is at full charge, but it really isn't. I can't remove the battery because it is built into the laptop. Is there any way to fix this?
Thanks, HB

A:Laptop battery always at 100%, doesn't charge at all

Hi -
Samsung does make some sacrifices in order to keep the Series 9 so thin and light. The battery, memory, and solid state disk are not user replaceable.
They’re sealed up inside the laptop case, and while you might be able to remove some components and replace them by performing minor surgery on the notebook, you’ll probably void your warranty in the process.
About all I can find .........................

Is this yours ?? Or do you mean the Series 9 ??

I have a Macbook Pro (2006 model) which doesn't charge the battery, but functions normally when plugged in to an external power source.

Some liquid was spilled onto the computer, which most likely caused this problem. In any case, I believe I've narrowed the problem down to either the left I/O board or the motherboard itself. I can most likely obtain a used and functioning I/O board to replace the old one.

So, I was wondering if there is some way if I can find out for sure which one it is ? And since the computer can properly use the power adapter when plugged but just doesn't charge the battery is it still possible that it is the I/O board ?

Thanks in advance,

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

Symptoms: Dell Laptop (about 1 year old) only turns on when charger is plugged in. The second the charger is pulled out, the laptop shuts off. The laptop does not seem to charge as it doesn't even recognize a charger as being plugged in. I'd really hate to spend $150 for a new battery/installation already. It has been doing this for 1 day, since coming back from Vegas where I took the laptop with me.
Is there are fixes to this?

A:Solved: Does My Laptop Need a New Battery?? It doesn't seem to charge

Depending what type of battery, they can be pretty short-lived. If NiCad, they die fairly quickly if recharged when they are not completely dead. They need to be "cycled" and die before being recharged or they "remember" the point they are at when charged as being their new minimum and will not hold much charge.

Lithium batteries and NiMH should last a long time.

Check with Compaq for a battery calibration utility for your machine. It may be that simple. But if the battery still doesn't work right, it probably needs replacement. The chargers are almost never the problem.

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?

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: Best of luck.

I'm having a common issue I would say. Last time I used my laptop was this afternoon to watch a short clip on youtube, I turned it off right after and I remember it was at 17%, although I have the power button to shut down right away. A few hours ago, I decided to turn it and and surprised I noticed it didn't turn on. I tried to plug my A/C adapter to charge it a couple of minute but the lightning light didn't even show up. I've google'd around and found a way to hard reset it ( Remove the battery/adapter/ hold the power button 30 sec) no success still. I'm wondering if it's either the adapter or the battery is dead, as I don't have any spare of both right now is there a way to confirm it?


A:Laptop doesn't turn on/charge anymore


There's usually a small light on the power adaptor... is it on? If not, it's probably dead. Try another main lead.
If the light is on, remove the battery from the laptop and connect the power adaptor. Does the laptop turn on?
If not, try the reset again.

Sounds like you'll need a new motherboard. If you'd like my help sourcing one you're welcome to send me a PM with your model, serial and date code. This must be sent in a private message as forum rules don't allow posting serial numbers, or you could source one yourself. The problem isn't the water itself, it's the minerals in the water and they rarely survive a liquid spill. If you want to try to fix it you can buy or make some pure distilled water (must be pure distilled water, no substitutes will work, then buy or make a steam cleaner so you can blast the motherboard clean with steam and if you are extremely lucky you might get the minerials out of the circuits, but it's more likely that there is perm damage to the charging circuits from when it was powered on, so this is an extreme long shot and I know it sounds insane to fix a water spill with more water, but pure distilled water doesn't conduct, however it's difficult to completely purify water and even a drop of sweat could contaminate the process.  You could also try some commercial electronic cleaning sprays. I can tell you that I did once save a motherboard that had sodapop (coke) spilled on it by distilling some water then using a capichino machine to steam clean it. After than I put it in a hot oven after it was heated and turned off, then let it sit in the hot over to dry. I then put it in a sunny window sill for a couple days where it got hot sunlight and it worked, but an important factor is that it had no power run through it while wet.  Replacing the board is still probably your best option.

I purchased a used Toshiba Satellite L305-D, it did not come with a power adapter. I purchased a new power adapter but soon learned the battery wasn't very good so I purchased a new battery. I shut the laptop down, put in the new battery and let it charge overnight. In the morning, it showed 100% charged. In an effort to "condition" the battery, I let it run on battery power until it shut down, then plugged it in to recharge. It first charged to 40% when I noticed it was not charging any longer. I unplugged it, plugged it back in and it started recharging again. It stopped again at 62%. I can't get it keep charging to 100%.

The system shows that it's plugged in, but not charging. When I unplug and replug back in the battery charge light will come on for a short time, then go out. Any suggestions?

Hello, I need some help with my problem.

Here's what happened, my laptop just turned off by itself while I was surfing the net. Now my battery would not charge even if the ac/dc adapter is plug in (the ac/dc indicator light on my laptop is on when it's plug in). I've tried to turn on my laptop without the battery and just ac/dc plug on but it wouldn't turn on.

Additional info (idk if these are relevant or not):
I've recently updated the bios, sound and video drivers like 12 hours before this happened
My laptop randomly reboots when I play games like grand theft auto 4 and I'm sure it's not an overheating problem.

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

I have Acer S3-391 with Windows 7. The original 500GB Hitachi hdd failed and I decided to replace it with 240GB Kingston SSD drive (model V300). Problem is that even BIOS (latest v1.29) doesn't detect it.BIOS lists HDD0 as "None" and HDD1 as "SATA SDD", which is probably the integrated 20GB SDD drive.Any hdd I have tested with, will be detected normally, but not this SDD drive.  SDD drive is new and I have tested it with other computer and it works fine.Unfortunately I don't have any other SSD drive to test with. Does this "BIOS" model support SSD drives at all ?

A:How do I fix my USB that it doesn't detect anything at all

You're saying it doesn't detect any USB port. Is that because when you try to use a keyboard or mouse, you see no response on the screen?

If so, couple of things you could try:
1) If your motherboard has both USB 3.0 ports and USB 2.0 ports, make sure the keyboard and mouse are BOTH plugged into the USB 2.0 ports.
2) Go into your BIOS settings and see if you have an option to enable or disable legacy mode. If you have that option and legacy mode is disabled, then enable it and try again.

I have Acer S3-391 with Windows 7. The original 500GB Hitachi hdd failed and I decided to replace it with 240GB Kingston SSD drive (model V300). Problem is that even BIOS (latest v1.29) doesn't detect it.BIOS lists HDD0 as "None" and HDD1 as "SATA SDD", which is probably the integrated 20GB SDD drive.Any hdd I have tested with, will be detected normally, but not this SDD drive.  SDD drive is new and I have tested it with other computer and it works fine.Unfortunately I don't have any other SSD drive to test with. Does this "BIOS" model support SSD drives at all ?

What does diskmgmt.msc show ? I switched the WD 500GB for a Samsung EVO in my R3 and other than being A Lot faster there was no problem.

Hello, I've researched extensively for a solution to why my brand new battery and AC Adapter won't fully charge.
When I first turned on the computer it charged to around 72 percent. 
Then after the first recharge, it only went up to around 48 percent.
Repeated again, and only got around 39 percent and now it seems to stay there.
I've updated the BIOS already, tried uninstalling the ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery Driver and reinstalling it.
So my question is, is there any place I can download an updated driver?
The one on my computer states that its from 06/21/2006. Perhaps there's an updated driver somewhere?
My Operating System is Windows 7 Professional 64-bit.
Please help.
Thank you!!!!

Hello, the battery of my z830 doesn't charge and it only works connected to the electricity. The problem is in the chip of the motherboard, the battery works fine. What chip I need buy and change for solve the problem?

Thank you,

A:Portege Z830 doesn't charge (chip motherboard problem)

Are you 100% sure it is the mainboard, not the battery?
That battery is about 4 years old, it would have worn out by now.

If it is actually a mainboard fault...
I don't think you can get the chips separately, you may need a whole new mainboard.

I have a Satellite Click 2 Pro 30WB; at the beginning I had no problem with this product, but since a couple of months the docking station battery doesn't charge. I'm able to charge only the battery of the tablet.

Can someone help me?


A:Satellite Click 2 Pro P30W-B - Docking station battery doesn't charge

Hmm… if this issue didn’t appear from first day of purchase, then the battery docking issue might be related to battery fault.
In such case you will need to contact the service to fix it.

But just one question: is your BIOS up to date?
Check the update within the service station and in case of available new BIOS version; try to update the BIOS to the latest state.

When powered on charging light flashes yellow.
Battery does not charge and if battery removed the laptop shuts down.

At time this problem does not happen.

Moreover, when power cord is removed, battery charges for few moments and then yellow flashing light comes on and charging stops. When shutdown, the battery charges normal and 100% charged battery gives almost 4 hours time.

Can any one please guide about the problem. Is the problem in power adapter? or the battery? or the motherboard/hardware?

How to verify problem?

A:Satellite Pro L500: indicator flashing amber - battery doesn't charge

It seems that you already posted an thread about similar issue with your notebook some years ago.

In first case it seems that your battery was the troublemaker.

You are talking about charging indicator. I?m not quite sure what LED should it be.
There are 5 LEDs - from left: DC IN / Power / Battery / HDD, ODD / Bridge Media Slot

The first DC IN indicator glows green when power is being correctly supplied form the AC adaptor. However, if the output voltage from AC adaptor is abnormal or if the computers power supply malfunctions, this LED will go out.

The second from left Power indicator glows green when the notebook is turned on. If you turn the notebook into the sleep mode, this indicator flashes amber.

The third battery indicator show the conditions of the batter charge. Green indicates the battery is fully charged, amber indicates the battery is charging and flashing amber indicates a low battery condition.

Are you able to power up the unit without the battery but using just a connected AC adaptor?
Usually this should be possible even if the battery isn?t inserted.

I have a CD-RW Disc that I want to erase, but my RW drive doesn't even detect that it's there!

The drive itself is fine b/c it can read other cd's, just not this one

When I check out the drive with the CD in there using windows explorer, it shows nothing!

And every time I try to erase the CD in Nero, it says that there is an unspecified recorder error and that I need to insert a rewriteable medium as if I didn't even put anything in the drive.

It used to be a little erratic like this and I would have to stick the CD in and out a couple of times before it worked, but this time it's totally busted.

Hi, so today I have turned on my PC, but the monitor did not detect it.
I have unplugged and re-plugged all the cables and it still did not work.

I have then tried a different cable and monitor to but again it did not work.

Finally I decided to unplug my graphics card and plug the monitor into the integrated graphics card but once again it did not work.

The monitor does turn on and so does the PC but the monitor does not detect it being plugged in.

Any ideas on what can be the problem? (It all worked fine yesterday)

last saturday i could install win xp pro sp2 without having any problems. all is running good. but there is one problem : the system doesn't detect my scanner (genius colorpage hr6x series) i can install the device with the hardware wizard. the device manager tells me that the device is working properly. but after restarting the computer it tells me: scanner not found. i tried it many times but always the same: scanner not detected. i checked at genius for new drivers. but they didn't have new ones.

what can i do? i need some help. thanks in advance.

A:win xp pro sp2 doesn't detect scanner

SP2 is still not yet stable and Microsoft, revert back to SP1 may help, Microsoft needs to get more bugs out of SP2.

Another thing is some scanner goes into power saving mode after a few mins, this happened to my own scanner which turns off itself from time to time and Widnows couldn't find it. Some parallel cable jsut die on you too.

I am writing in because I think I've exhausted all means of trying to fix an issue with my drive.

As title states, I inserted a DVD into my LG GH24NS90 but Windows 7 is not detecting it.
Info about my computer :
GA-Z68XP-UD3 (rev. 1.0) - Gigabyte
1. Installed Windows 7 OS on IDE mode
2. Tried burning a DVD using ConvertXtoDVD but it burns very slowly (even though it was set at x16) and it freezes the computer when burning.

Hence, I tried to change it to AHCI mode as information on the internet says changing it to AHCI would solve the problem,

1. Update drive to latest firmware.
2. Changed to AHCI (in BIOS) and selected my SSD to boot with success!
3. Tried to insert DVD into drive but not detected!
What can I do!!!

From what you have listed, the exclamation indicates that you have a conflict with another hardware in your machine. Keep eliminating each device until you get to the bottom of which one is actually causing problems. Not quite sure but it could be that other DVD-ROM.

A:BIOS doesn't detect HDD

Thanks for the reply, but I had done that already. I loaded the default and the custom setting, and neither did anything.

Now I don't even see the hard drive listed in the post-POST screen. I immediately see "insert boot diskette." I removed the floppy drive and it still says it, although it waits a little bit longer with a blinking cursor before the message pops up.

I did try a different HDD (through the ATA controller card) with the computer and it still wasn't detected. I then tried attaching this HDD (20GB) via an IDE motherboard slot (the other one is occupied by the CD-ROM). The HDD was not detected in BIOS, but the CD-ROM is. Then, I removed the CD-ROM from its cable and attached it to the same IDE cable as the newly-connected HDD. Still no dice. Finally, I switched both devices (now on the same 80-pin IDE cable) to the motherboard IDE slot that the CD-ROM drive was originally attached to. BIOS detects both the HDD and the CD-ROM drive.

I've never seen or heard about a virus that infects a BIOS from a hard drive. I really wish I knew what the source of my problem is. I think it's really odd that my hard drive on one computer would get Windows corruption (the one I was scanning with the Dell; other files are still intact), then the CD-ROM on another computer fail (the one in the Dell), and then a motherboard IDE slot stop working, completely independently on the same day. I've heard of viruses being able to destroy computer components by over-clocking them, but I never witnessed any odd performance. The likelihood of me having a virus is remote, but possible.

A:BIOS doesn't detect OS.

Try tapping F8 before windows would normally start to load. That should bring up the boot menu but I think it will be the XP menu since that's your default OS. But give it a try and see if it allows you to boot to another OS.Or, if you hit the PAUSE/BREAK key at just the right time to pause loading at the OS selection screen you can select Vista at that point.If you can get Vista to load then you need to run BCDEDIT or a third party application like EASYBCD to edit the entries.If neither of those work you'll probably have to either do a fresh install or run BCDEDIT after booting from the Vista disk. From:"BCDEDIT works from installation boot dvd too. If you mess up with a setting and you cannot boot, just boot from DVD and enter Repair Computer, then go to command prompt and there you go. You can play again with bcdedit to restore your system back."More detailed info here:

Then try a Cd, when drawer closes with a Cd on it, put a finger or two on the face plate you should feel the motor strat up or attempt to do so. If nothing happens then you need to replace Cd player!

A:After bluescreen T43 doesn't detect hdd anymore

I had one of these come into my shop with a similar issue. Since the hard drive is not detected in bios, its not a software issue so it's not a virus. So lets take a deeper look. If its not detected in the bios that means its hardware and on a laptop only 4 peices of hardware would have this issue. Mobo, HD, Ram, or physical connection to the mobo. Since its not the HD then check out the ram, if it checks out either take the computer to a specialist in motherboards or look for a dissasembly guide and attempt to check the connections yourself. Take plenty of pictures of what you take apart and what it comes from so you can reassemble it with ease. You can also try jiggling the hard drive in place and seeing if that helps.

I don't have 2004 yet, but in 2002 you have two install where it required the CD's and another (larger) option where it copied everything to the hard drive.

If 2004 has that option, might try going with the larger install.

What are your system specs?

Check 'Device Manager' for any yellow triangles, if there are any check for new drivers from your OEM or motherboard website.
You should check for updated drivers even if no yellow triangles.

Can you borrow a keyboard with a PS2 cable, for testing?

Have clicked on detect my computer, which prompts me to download and install lenovo service bridge, which I have done. Can see it in Start Menu (am using new install of Win 7 with all latest updates) as well as in installed programs. However, when I go back to Lenovo's online support pages and click on detect my PC, instead of detecting my PC (is a M91p, 4518 small form factor type), it simply aske me to download LSB.exe again. I need a couple of drivers after my windows install; however, as I don't know which ones/what they're for I really need to get this to work I'm going round in circles - please help! Thanks,Richard

Hey all,

When booting my computer, i seem to get stuck at "Detecting IDE Drives". It completes the cycle every once in a while, maybe once every 3-5 restarts. As well, my computer CANNOT boot off of my CD drive, only my disk drive. When I do boot from my HDD, my computer doesn't detect my CD Drive. Additionally, the drive doesn't even open nor does it have a light - although on occassion, it will work fine; it will open and light up as usual.

Can anybody explain how to fix this in lamens terms?

Thanks in advance!

A:Computer doesn't detect CD drive

There are a few things you can try as in this guide:

However, because of the multiple problems you describe, in the end I think you will have to replace the drive with a new one.

So I'm wondering what this is. I happen to open C:\ in my computer (I have one physical drive, divided into an NTFS partition with 145 GB and a FAT32 2.5 GB part., and that's the way my eMachine came)...I see a bunch of text documents with long, random names like '0dbb8868c1af2bc6152517d82d0d' for example, filled with what look like logs for some weird process. AVG doesn't find anything wrong with them. My Maple Story client is what alerted me to a possible virus/spyware anomaly; it doesn't function right at initialization.

Okay it's not the computer or the USB ports. I will tell you that now.

My sister has a laptop. My brother has a computer. And I have a computer.
Both of them downloaded zoombrowser from the internet and it worked fine but it didn't detect the camera. They installed something that I don't know of, and they forgot the name of, but it had the word "download" in it.

This thing they installed was from the internet too, and I was wondering what it was.

After they installed the thing, everything was fine and the computer/laptop could detect the camera.

Where is it, and what is it? x_x

A:Zoombrowser EX:doesn't detect camera


Welcome to TSG.

Sounds to me as though you do not have the device driver for the camera loaded into the computer.

You will need this driver for the camera to be recognised.

Normally, if you do not have the CD anymore, it should be easy to find the driver on the camera manufacturers website.

Alternatively, you should be able to download the photo's through a card reader, as long as zoombrowser recognises the camera exif format.

I just upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10 and now my computer only detects one display rather than two. I have a Dell desktop computer and two Dell monitors. Using Windows 7 both monitors were being detected/used. Can anyone tell me how to correct. (I'm not very technically experienced, but can follow basic instructions.)

The second display shows a black screen with the message "Cannot Display This Video Mode".

A:Windows 10 doesn't detect my second monitor

right click on desktop for "display settings" - pick the monitor that shows up that message -> click it to activate -> switch correct video mode for it. its prolly too high resolution issue.

also WIN+P -combination gives you chance to use "extended desktop" which you should use to configure the resolutions

So I've already uninstalled the driver, restarted my computer, reinstalled the driver, and restarted the computer. MSN has been set to show others that I do have an available webcam. Skype is set to enable the webcam.

I can use my webcam via the installed Logitech program, but neither Skype nor MSN detects I have a webcam. I've tried plugging the webcam USB into three different USB ports to no avail. The programs do not detect my webcam for some reason; it's a bit odd, because it'll work, but it'll suddenly stop working. This has happened three times before on different occasions where I've reformatted my computer inbetween each incident.

My webcam is the following model:

QuickCam? Communicate STX
M/N: V-UBK45, V-UBK45

Can someone please tell me why I can use my webcam using the actual program that comes with the driver, but not on MSN, Skype, etc.?

Hello. My notebook is HP  Probook 450 G1 with  AMD Radeon HD 8750M and Intel HD 4400 I just reinstall Windows on my notebook . And now i have problems with AMD driver, cause i can't install drivers for it. First of all i must observe that device manager and GPU-Z doesn't detect it. The second thing i've detected - in GPU-Z shows that multi-gpu is OFF. In BIOS dual graphics switched on, so i can't realise what is the problem. Allready turned my BIOS to default, but didn't help .In my old windows always was ok, but now she doesn't detect AMD too, only Intel HD.

I can't figure out how to solve this. I tried rebooting, reinstalling everest. To no avail.

I made sure the CPU HS/F was plugged into the correct pin on the Mobo, and it is.

Can anyone help me? The only temperature Everest will detect is my GPU and GPU Ambient. Also HDD temperatures.

A:Everest doesn't detect my CPU temperature.

why do you need everest to detect your CPU temps?

software based temp programs are not very accurate. everest is a great tool, but i wouldn't rely on it for temp sensing.

a physical temp probe is the best way to go. the next best thing IMO is the BIOS (although the BIOS doesn't show temps under load

Hey Y'all

The computer was hooked up to high speed for a while, via an external modem, but now I have to use dial-up again. Problem is Windows 98 doesnt recognize the internal modem (conexant HPC) that was working before. I've deleted all traces of the modem from computer as best as I can and reinstalled it with a new driver I downloaded (I dont have the disc). The modem shows up in the device manager and under the modem option in the control panel but when I try to dial my ISP it get a message telling me to make sure my modem is plugged in or it asks me if I want to install a new modem. I've physically taken the modem out of the computer, shut down, rebooted, shut down, reinstalled it and still no luck. Is the modem kaput? Is there maybe a BIOS issue? A port settings issue? Help!

A:Computer doesn't detect modem

Go thru Control Panel/Phones and Modems. Run the Diagnostic "Query Modem" and see if the system can communicate with it.

If not then there is a physical OR setup problem with the card. You might also try moving the card to different slots.

Dial Modems are generally a PITA!!!
