Preferred Solution: Laptop only works on AC when battery is removed

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: Laptop only works on AC when battery is removed

Sounds like the battery is possibly faulty. Have you tried removing it, then locking it back into position?

Hi @ClevelandFamily, Thank you for visiting the HP Forums! I have looked into your issue about your HP 15-f211wm Notebook and it having startup issues.  I would try reseating the Battery. Maybe it did not sit in the Notebook correctly. Try performing a Hard ResetWhen performing a hard reset please note remove any and all USB devices. Disconnect all non-essential devices. Plug the power adapter directly into a different wall outlet. Do not plug it into a power strip, surge protector, or secondary power source as this could cause and issue. Please let me know how this goes. To simply say thanks, click the Thumbs up below!    If you require further assistance let me know and I will gladly do all I can to help. Thanks.

Hello all My hard drive activity LED was blinking Every LED Second HD Blinking Activity Removed With Laptop Battery on a routine basis so I used Process Monitor to isolate the problem to HD Activity LED Blinking Every Second With Laptop Battery Removed a PID process which appeared to be flushing the hard drive cache on a routine and continual basis So I went through the process of trying all different HD write cache combinations disable turn off but the flushing continued The final fix was to put the battery back in the laptop and this stopped the routine access and the HD flushing ceased Now I'm only guessing but this routine flushing appears to be a defensive measure initiated by some process related to the the power scheme to prevent data loss when the battery backup is not available However since I only use this laptop on a very infrequent basis and when I do I would like to use it exclusively on AC I would like to keep the battery removed on a permanent basis Note The continual HD access does have a slight impact on performance I wish there was some way to install Win on a laptop and give it the power scheme of a desktop Any suggestions Thanks in advance for your responses plsrepli

A:HD Activity LED Blinking Every Second With Laptop Battery Removed

You can do that by going to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Power Options\Edit Plan Settings and click on Change advanced plan settings and set everything to max performance or disable power saving features.

My HDD light blinks at 1 seconds intervals too and is caused by the system polling the CD/DVD drives for a disk.

What is the avg time it takes to charge a laptop fully when it has been charged many times and finished conditioning.

What is the ideal time a laptop lasts these days running off the battery.

And is it true that you may notice different times to charge and etc. Depending on how many apps you run and how much cpu power you are requiring? So basically if I multi task 5 programs at once will leaving it plugged in, it would take much longer for the batter to charge then if i was just running the browser?

thanks

im still new to the laptop field and how the battery power/lasting works. This is my 1st.

Hello All I have an old hp laptop that one day stopped working on battery power I m not sure if the problem is that the laptop will not charge the battery or if the laptop will not make use of the battery or both Apparently this is a known problem with this model but none of the online fixes I found worked It works when plugged in and the battery monitor reports that it is charging and at however that is unchanging over weeks and as soon as I unplug it it shuts off Right now I have replaced the ram G to G and the harddrive G to T and dual boot arch and windows I m considering G72 works HP Laptop on battery: longer no upgrading the bios but before needlessly wasting time on something like that and potentially jacking up this computer I wanted to know what you think Gnome does not indicate if it is charging or not it just reads estimating Thanks nbsp

Someone spilled a drink on my HP laptop (model g6-1116so) and now it only works when the battery is being used. When I push the power button with only the AC adapter plugged in, nothing happens. What should I do to research what could be wrong? After the drink was spilled, the laptop was sitting without being used for at least 5 days and it works fine apart from no power using AC adaptor. Is there a surge protector inside this computer?
Any advice please. Thanks for reading.

Please help,
I have a fairly new (just over a year) Toshiba Satellite A65-S126. It runs great and forever on AC power. The second the AC is disconn ected, it powers off. The battery shows full power. This computer has only been in normal use for about 3 months. The first year it was used on oaccasion, but always worked on battery just fine. Don't like having to plug in wherever I go, and don't want to be without while dealer is "looking at it." Any advice would be great!
Thanks
 

A:Laptop works on AC, but not on battery--fully charged

have you made any recent changes to your system? (i.e. new battery or BIOS update?) Did you drop the laptop?

Also, laptop batteries are generally only good for 1 year of normal use anyways before needing replacement, although they will usually still hold a 5~10 minute charge)

I removed E-Trust, MyWebSearch, PartyPoker, Tramadol, TimeClock, and NetworkMagic from my PC, and can no longer connect to the internet. I'm on broadband with an external SURFboard, running through a D-link DIR-625 wireless router. I'm running windows XP on both the PC and this Dell laptop. The laptop connects(sometimes it takes a couple tries), the PC will send and receive emails, but every time I try to connect, I get the IE cannot display webpage screen. I've tried every Wizard, repair, diagnostic program in Windows, and NADA. You are my last hope before I try dumping everything and starting over. Since I can't connect, I downloaded Hijackthis onto a flash drive from this comp, and ran it on the PC. If someone thinks they can help, I can copy the log on the flash drive, and post it here. Right? Thanks in advance,
Josh

A:I Removed The Problems, Now Nothing Works

Well, it didn't work. I downloaded Hijackthis, Hijackthis reader, and DSS.exe. Hijackthis opens the scan page, but whenever I try to click on something, is says it's being used by something else, and clicking switch to or retry does nothing. DSS.exe starts creating a restore point, and after an hour, is still sitting on the first block of the progress bar. The reader seems to work, but I can't use it without the first program. Can I not use a flashdrive to transfer it to the affected PC? The PC has been trying to shutdown for about 10 minutes now, it's not looking good.

I have a Dell XPS 400 (bought in 2005) and I'm running Windows XP. Well, I removed the CMOS battery for about an hour two days ago to try and get rid of the BIOS password (didn't work if you were curious). Anyway, now I have no sound on my computer.

When I start up the computer I get "Floppy Diskette Seek Failure, press F1 to go to setup or F2 to continue on". I'm not sure if that has anything to do with the problem though. My speakers are working, the volume is up, etc. I tried plugging in headphones into the computer and still no sound. I did the troubleshooter and it didn't solve my problem.

Any Suggestions?

I would read your manual, especially the setup part, you may have hosed your bios settings and need to go into bios and let it redetect everything.

Some times after adding memory or making changes to the computer configuration, just going into bios fixes the problems.

You have to exit and save changes

Has anyone figured out what this malware does? I removed the ZeroAccess and cleaned it up entirely.. I ran sfc /scannow.. I reinstalled and repaired the TCP/IP protocal. I can browse to non-standard ports like remotelyanywhere port 2000. But try to browse any standard ports it will not connect.. pings fine.. dns resolves fine.. non-standard ports work fine.. repair Windows Firewall. But still something blocks standard http and https ports. At this time I am resorting to a wipe reinstall on this clients system because it's an Asus EEE PC and has no repair install options. But I wish to know what could still block standard http ports as I have another client to work on later this week. Does anyone have a clue?

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.

Hi there .. Do you have Power4Gear Installed ... If so i would look into the Settings for that could be a power plan so save Battery life ... It should also be able to tell you your Battery's Health status ... I have no idea how good this Program is could be total crap ...

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.

How long have you been using the laptop with battery? Is it still under warranty?

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?

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 a HP Probook 4730s and it has an i7 processor, 8gb ram, 700GB HDD. I have this new software program called Corel Videostudio Pro. I am in the middle of rendering a large 20GB HD video and all of a sudden the computer shuts off. And the weird thing is that I cannot turn it back on, even when plugged in. I can only turn it back on when I remove the battery and replace it.
What can I do to finish this rendering of my video without the computer shutting down?

Install this software CPUID Hardware Monitor and check your system temps when you are rendering the video, I suspect an overheating issue.

I've had a nasty virus for months; I got rid of most of it but still had remnants like Google redirecting and hidden start menu options. Yesterday I ran Eset, TDSSkiller, HitmanPro, MBAM, Unhide.exe, and finally CCleaner and everything was restored and my computer worked perfectly, faster than it had been in months, etc. It was grand. Then this morning it started working really slowly on YouTube. I realized I had never restarted the computer after running the series of programs which finally got it working again (or so it seemed). I ran them again and restarted it. Ever since, the internet has not worked in normal boot mode and it's driving me crazy!! It works fine in Safe Mode w/networking; what have I done??? Please help!!

Hi Guys,

I have replaced the battery of my laptop after using it on AC supply for about year after my old battery died.

I get this error message.
"The AC power adapter type cannot be determined
Battery may not charge.
This problem might be solved by:
Connect a Dell 65W AC adapter or higher."

But I am using a 65W Dell Adapter that I got with my laptop.
BTW, I tried the steps for disc AC >> Start>>Uninstall MS ACPI >> Insert battery>> Restart. This process did not yield any favorable results.

Please help!!!
Thanks,
Nitin

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

Hi out cuts battery power, on laptop battery good my girlfriend in Beijing has an Acer Aspire S latop She bought a new battery for it laptop cuts out on battery power, battery good a while back and told me it was no good I was in Beijing recently messing around with it and found that actually the battery is fine lasts for gt hours but when unplugged and running on battery power the laptop often just cuts out suddenly loss of power I took the battery out and had a look and cleaned all the connections but they seem fine The next part is the strange part and which I hope might give someone a clue as to what s going on When it cuts out it will never restart again unless the mains power cable is plugged back into the laptop As soon as that s done and the power button is pressed it starts up again and the cable can be taken out immediately I mean immediately - you can plug the cable in push the quot power on quot button and pull the cable back out in less than a second and it will start up and run fine on battery again until the next time it suddenly cuts out without warning Because any unsaved data is lost and because the laptop cannot restart without the power adaptor this very portable and light laptop is now reduced to having to be kept at home all the time and plugged in which is exactly the opposite of what she bought it for Anybody have any idea what the problem could be or suggest some tests that could be done to find out She took it to a local computer shop but the guys there had no idea Thanks in advance for any advice nbsp

I am becoming more and more concerned about my laptop's battery each and every passing day. When I check the bottom right of my computer screen to check if my computer battery is completely charged, it says "0% available (plugged in, not charging)". I have had to buy two new batteries because of the same thing and they also read "0% available (plugged in, not charging)". When I unplug my laptop from the power source, it turns off automatically. I cannot even bother calling Dell to check this issue for me because I bought this computer off the street for $35.

My question in general is how do I get this problem fixed and how do I keep an eye on how my laptop computer charges correctly (or not)???

- Uninstall (Under the Batteries category in Device Manager) the Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery.
- WARNING: Do not remove the Microsoft AC Adapter driver or any other ACPI compliant driver.
- click Scan for hardware changes

Try removing the battery and reinstalling it. it may not be connecting properly or snapped in all the way. Some components have an FRU # on them which is the field replaceable part number. I don't see why the battery cannot be shipped to you anyway. But you need to call Tech Support to process this since the forum is NOT tech support only a forum of users primarily.

A:Accidently removed registry key. Nothing on Computer works including internet.

This is not a programming issue. I am going to move it to a place where it should get more visibility.

EDIT: The only way I can think to fix your issue without a complete reformat is to do a registry backup from a known good computer, and restore it via reg.exe (command line). That might restore the registry enough so that you can roll your system back to a known good restore point.

Hi folks
I have a lab for repairing laptops and i came up to a common problem with these series D600, D500 when used with a fake cheap AC adapter caused the laptop to stop working with AC and now it works only with charged battery even if i'm connecting it with a brand new original dell AC adapter.

I assume it damaged something in the DC convertion on the MoBo, maybe a dead voltage regulator / diode or a bad capacitor but i'm not able to track it down

any help or point for direction will be much appriciated.....

i'm afraid the battery calibration program is only used to initialize new Li-Ion batteries which need to be prepped with an initial charge-discharge cycle.

It sounds to me like you have a battery composed of 32 (probably AA sized) cells.
One of those cells has died and hence you see only 97% charge. Unfortunately losing a single cell prevents current from entering or leaving the battery so your battery will not discharge correctly therefore shutoff without discharge.

I think you need a new battery. Although it may be possible to replace the single bad cell, other cells may be degraded also - if one cell failed, why not others? unit could have been exposed to heat etc.

Although I was an engineer for Gould, I am not a battery expert!

good luck!
Simon

I've used a damaged charger on my clevo d480w and I've seen a spark right on the power jack of the laptop. As a consequence, power isn't reaching the laptop or the battery anymore. Laptop works perfectly with a charged battery but doesn't power up with any charger. Could it only be the power jack or is it some more serious fault on mother board?

I have a Dell Precision M70 that works fine off of the battery, but will not operate or charge the battery off of the power supply. (I have a 2nd M70 with which to charge batteries). I suspected a worn out power supply input jack, so I ordered a replacement and completed the MB surgery last night (those 9 pin jacks are NOT fun to de-solder off the MB!). Results after jack replacement are the same - no sign of input power. As I don't have schematics for this MB, I don't know what is in the circuitry path from the jack. Perhaps a fuse, varistor, voltage regulator, corrosion verdigris, ???? - something that perhaps one of you out there has heard has a propensity for failure in the M70. I'd love to get this laptop back up and running - any ideas?
 

A:Dell M70 works on battery, not on power supply

Prior to troubleshooting, an observation:
Not sure what the prices are for parts for that laptop but on a pure cost basis, it seems like its going to be cheaper (from a time and money standpoint) to just buy a new motherboard from the manufacturer.
Assuming you still want to troubleshoot it:
Do you have access to other working M70's?

Would be interested to test the power supply on another identical laptop to see if the behavior persists, try other charger/power supplies with the same laptop.

Is the power supply modular? are there parts of it you can swap out with "known good" components?

Also try other batteries, and check the battery terminals for corrosion or dirt.

I understand that the computer operates fine when the battery is only discharging. Does it still operate when a power supply is attached, or does it cause some sort of fault? (understanding that it doesnt charge or draw current when the power supply is attached)

I have a HP DV6 7000 laptop. Battery charging only works when lid is closed (sleep mode). If I close the lid and plug in the charger, the indicator light shows orange, and the battery will then proceed to charge to near full. If I open the lid prior to the orange light changing to white, the battery icon always says: __% available (plugged in, not charging). Several different chargers give identical outcomes. ALL of them will fully charge the battery in about two hours; provided that, the lid is kept closed. If I open the lid, even at say 50% charge, the orange light switches to white, and the battery icon always says: __% available (plugged in, not charging). Thanks, Ed.

Hi @ElyMayor   Thank you for your reply. The last thing I can suggest trying is a restore back to factory.  Performing an HP system recovery (Windows 7) While doing the recovery there is an option to backup your personal files. If you have not previously done one now is a good time. Restoring Files that were Backed Up Using HP Recovery Manager (Windows 7) You can also contact HP support for assistance. They can remotely access your system to help alleviate difficulties.  Please call our technical support at 800 474 6836.

Hi

Problem I Have Happened Suddenly ,laptop workins perfect all the time ,but since yesterday when i plug in the ac adapter laptop will work for 10 seconds powerd off then and then will not turn on - only orange power cord icon blinks.

A:Portege R500 works on battery but after connecting to AC adapter is OFF

Can you start your Portege with AC power supply only (battery removed)?
If yes do it and when Windows is fully loaded put battery in place again.

What happen when you do this?

Battery charges fully as normal yet the indicator stops at 80%. Unplugging and using the battery power the indicator stays at 80% for a long period of time until the battery gets below the 80% mark then the indicator functions as normal.
Restarting the tablet the indicator boots to show 100% yet doesn't change until battery power gets to 80%.
Any help on fixing this would be greatly appreciated.

Hello everyone.

Facing this weird issue here, I can only use internet from one laptop, (the one im using to write this post).
Any other device wont get any internet access, they connect to the network, but get limited access. (Cant access any page etc)

One other weird aspect, is that, I can only access my ROUTER configuration page, from the devices that CANNOT connect to the internet, meaning that, from my laptop(the one im using right now) the page (192.168.0.3) will simply give me "Cannot establish connection"

Any ideas?
Thanks in advance

EDIT: Sorry for the confusing tittle.
 

A:Wifi works only works on one laptop

Sounds like you have your modem connected to a router LAN port instead of to the WAN (Internet, Modem) port. Hence, one device gets an IP configuration from your ISP and all the others get their IP configuration from the router.

If this is not true then please show the following for the computer with internet access and for one of the others (assuming Windows). Also, what is the IP on the router's WAN status page?

Open a (black) Command Prompt window:
Hold the Windows logo key and press r; in the Run box type cmd and click on OK.

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

[Note that there is no space between the slash and ALL.]

[Press ENTER after each command.]

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.

Since i bought a new laptop E7270, is it allowed to use my power adaptor my old Dell E6420 also for the new one?   If so i can use one adaptor at home and another in office and dont need to carry the power adaptor always.
Will this impact the battery performance of the new laptop?

A:If it is possible to use the power adapter of E6420 for my new laptop E7270? Will it impact the battery of the new laptop?

If the connector fits (it may not - the older systems use a much larger barrel connector than many of the new ones), AND the power (wattage) is equal or greater, yes.

Hello ...
I have had a Toshiba C850-A965 laptop for 4 years
and it's been working perfectly
untill one day recently, a message poped up saying that there's something wrong with the battery and should be replaced, but it was still the same, works for an hour and a half approximately
But, I went ahead and bought a new battery, the message disappeared
and i fully charged and then started the laptop
it worked for about 15 mins and then it shut down ( like u took the plug off from a desktop computer) without any warning
when i turned it back on, it was still fully charged !!! and the shutting down happend again and again :(
the old battery is still working fine
so that must mean that there's nth wrong with my laptop right? and the battery is bad?
please give me your opinions
thank you for your precious time

A:laptop battery problem, laptop shut down suddenly

Could still be a faulty battery. It can read the correct voltage off load, but as soon as you put a load on it, it takes a dive. The battery status symbol is just that, a symbol. The only foolproof method of proving it is to replace it with a known good battery. Do you have any good friends with a similar laptop ?

A:Laptop Battery Doesn't Charge if Laptop is off

a bios update is often needed when using a different battery than what the laptop was designed to use, and since you bought a generic battery, i highly doubt that Sony will provide support of any kind for it.

Check Ebay for actual Sony brand batteries (not another generic), you can get them on Ebay for 1/2 (or less) the price that you would pay in a store or from Sony

I have an HP Probook 4540S.

I don't use it that often and when I put it away, I make sure the battery is at 100%.

Today, I went to use it, and it would not power on.

I plugged in the A/C adapter and it powered up and showed the battery at 0%.

I called HP and they said that is normal and if I'm not going to use it for more than a week, to remove the battery.

I went to the HP forum, and they said just the opposite- The Mod said it has to be a software problem or a crappy battery.

Which is correct and would removing the battery when not using it be okay?

Thanks,

Paul

A:Laptop battery draining when laptop is shut down

Batteries do lose a certain percentage while being shutoff, usually 2-3% but it can be higher. The battery could be completely normal or it could be going bad. Typically this is from heat or poor charging habits (don't worry, everyone does it).

I've removed all HP specific software.  Bad idea?
 
I removed Bing.
 
I installed Comcast Norton which removed an existing version of Norton (When runing the HP disk, I said not to install Norton, but it appearantly did anyway).
 
I thought a promotion version of MS Office should have been installed, but appearantly it wasn't.
 
Please confirm that removing the HP software won't cause me too much hardship, and whether I should remove other problems.
 
Thank you

A:What should be removed from a HP Laptop

I have an HP laptop and ALWAYS uninstall all HP programs which get put back on when reinstalling Windows.
 
Removing them will cause you no problems. Most are "utilities" that you may never use.
 
I also uninstall the Norton and Office trials, Evernote, Bing, Adobe Reader because I use a different program for .pdf files,  
 
Here is a list of what gets uninstalled by me. Not listed is HP Games which also goes bye bye. If in doubt about something simply open it up and see if it is something you want to/might use.

My laptop has stalled and with previous laptops I have just unclipped the battery and removed power, how do I restart from a stall when the battery is in the body of the computer?  Control, Alt, delete does not work.

Suddenly, my laptop started to have problems booting. When I press the power button, it starts to power up, but quits after a few seconds (3-5). I can hear the drvies/fans start to spin up, and then it just powers off. The initial screen displays for about .5 seconds -too fast to read any messages.
I have it configured to boot from a CD/DVD, so I tried that, but it didn't work either - UNTIL - I removed the hard drive itself. Now I can boot fine from a bootable CD (typically a LINUX Live CD). I even replaced the HD with a new one, but its doing the same thing with the new drive.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. The laptop is an older HP zt1000, long since out of warrantee. 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!

I'm wondering if it is possible to buy some kind of adapter so that i can plug it into the USB port on my other computer? The hard drive has two rows of gold pins on it. Here are the specs that i have read off the bottom of the drive...

Hi
I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 with Vista SP2. She was running McAfee for years with no problems. However, she decided she didn't really need it so she didn't renew it.

There were so many things poping up that I couldn't even get it to a point where I could post even via Safe Mode, which is what I'm in right now.

I did run a few scan so I hope you don't get upset if I post them here.

I'm very interested in learning how to do this for others so any hand-holding/explaining is appreciated.

Oh, does not appear one can attach files on this forum so I'll hold off on those.
Let me know what you'd like me to run.

Much appreciated.

Hello nse and welcome to Seven Forums.

Sorry to hear about your misfortune. From what you've described it sounds like the read/write heads have been rendered inoperable. It could be the heads themselves or something else that controls the movement of the heads across the platters. (The actuator arms, the motor that powers the arms, the spindle that spins the platters or its motor, or even something in the electronics of the printed circuit board that contains the power and data cable connections, etc.)



You could try a free program called Recuva but I'm not very optimistic. If the read/write heads aren't working it may take a professional recovery service (that usually charges hundreds of dollars) to get your document off the hard drive.

A:Laptop freezes when charger is inserted/removed

Dear Amishra,

I am encountering the exact same issue as you have described. I'd like to know whether you have managed to resolve this matter or is it an ongoing issue? Any advise you can give me to help me get to the bottom of the fault would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

I have an ASUS UX31E. Pretty much since I first got it I have been experiencing this problem.
The problem being that occasionally when I remove or insert the charger into the laptop, it freezes. By completely freezing I mean screen freezing and the only option being to hold down the power button to force a power down.

It only happens occasionally though, not every time I remove or insert the power cable. Sometimes maybe a few times a day or even a week.
There isnt really any immediate or obvious similarity in what I am doing at the time of freezing although I have a suspicion it could be to do with the graphics card as it most happens when i am full screening something.

I have reformatted a bunch of times and this is still a problem, so i suspect its hardware. But when I phoned the ASUS customer service they said that the engineers would have to be able to recreate the problem.
I dont know what exactly triggers it! So i have to find out before sending it to get repaired!!

This is what it said in Event Viewer after one of these hangs.

I tried to add my work laptop to a workgroup (see attached image from where I did it.  Note that this image was taken from my home PC where I am on a workgroup, and I just put a sample domain in the image).
 
Didn't ask for a password or anything.  When I rebooted, I could not log on.  Turns out I was removed from the company domain, and the username/password required to log on was that of the original individual who images the laptop.
 
IT tells me there is no way to add me back, and my only recourse is to reimage the laptop!
 
Is there any options?  The harddrive is encryped, however, I have obtained the encryeption key and could access it now from another PC.
 
Thanks!

A:Can't logon to laptop after removed from company domain

Hi,
 
I'm not sure about the encryption part but Microsoft provides a set of tools to Volume Licensing clients called  Diagnostics and Recovery Toolkit (DaRT) it includes a tool to change the password for local accounts called LockSmith you need to have Administrator access to be able to rejoin the domain.
 
My understanding is that changing the password for a user this way will break the encryption (make documents unreadable) but it can be restored by using a backup of the encryption key for that user.

Okay, recently I got some pretty bad malware on my laptop and I gave it to a guy to fix. He reinstalled windows and gave it back to me and I thought everything was working fine until today when I noticed Windows update was not on my system. I have had someone from the microsoft team working on my laptop for the past 2 hours and then they told me they could fix it but they would need to charge me ?95. Which I dont have for the sake of windows updates. Has anyone had this issue before? Its totally wiped from my system, I know now it is possible to fix as microsoft said they could do it but I'd like to save myself ?95 and do it myself. If anyone knows how please help!

Hello All!

So here is my issue:

I got a laptop that had been dropped and want to recover data from the disk. It looks like it was dropped hard on the corner that holds the HDD (assumed from dent in corner.) I purchased a converter to hook the HDD up via USB (using Coolmax Combo Converter.) I have used it before to gather information from other HDDs but this time no go, all I hear is a faint whirling, clicking sound. I tried using diskmgmt.msc and windows explorer and it wasn't detected.

Is it a new paper weight? Or is it possible to gain access/test through another method?
