Q: Dell Latitute E5450, Game Lags when plugged into charge.

PC Specs: [According to DXDIAG]

Do you need sound and input?

Running off battery, fine. As soon as I plug it in, all hell breaks loose inside. Games are so laggy to the point that they are unplayable.

I do not have admin access but I have UniExtract (You'd be surprised at what it can do) and Access to C: Drive.

Thank you for visiting the HP Support Forums and Welcome. Thank you for the information you have provided with what you have done with the results. Very helpful. I have looked into your HP Pavilion 15-p077tx Notebook PC and issues with performance  and slow. Here is a document to help with performance being slow.  Some of the Live tiles on the desktop can cause issues with the speeds being slow as they are constantly updating. Right clicking on them and turning them off seems to help. Make sure all the updates have been done. Here is a link to the HP Support Assistant. Just download and run the application and it will help with the software and drivers on your system if any need updating. Hope this helps. Thanks.

A:Problem with Dell Latitude E5450 14" screen

I forgot to mention that I have an integrated graphic card - Intel HD Graphics 5500
Upon reading Intel forums, I found out that one user was complaining about the same thing, but after apparently updating his drivers (on Lenovo ThinkPad). When he reinstalled the old drivers, the eye strain was gone.
So I disabled my Intel Graphics drivers - e voila, no more eye strain!
Still though, that sharpness test is failing....
Any thoughts?

But after Restart from Windows, Login is only possible with PW or secure Question. When i then lock the laptop, login with finger print is available and possible ?!
Also when I then shutdown the Computer and re-power on, fingerprint login is also possible.
But when i press Reboot in Windows, the reader is again not available.
Also when the Computer hits standby and then is power on again, fingerprint is not available.

What can I do to get this reader always available ?

I have a Inspiron 17R SE-7720.  The battery is no longer charging, even when it is plugged in with the AC adapter that came with the laptop.  The blue light on the plug is on when the adapter is plugged in.  Unfortunately the battery is now completely dead, so I am no longer able to turn the laptop on.  Before the battery died, I checked the BIOS and noted that it was not registering the AC adapter.  Not sure where to go next with this issue.  Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks.

I've had my laptop plugged in for a while now and it won't turn on. When I plug it up the light beside the charger turns white for a few seconds and then turns red.Any suggestions?

A:HP 2000 won't turn on/charge when plugged in

Hey Ctfields,  I'm sorry you're running into this issue. If the light is turning solid red/amber and not blinking, that means it is charging the battery.  What happens when you press the Power button? Does the light on it come on at all, blink or remain on? Do you hear any spinning sounds from the fan and/or drives in the computer? Do you see any image on the screen, whether it is just an HP logo or a black screen with a blinking cursor or anything at all? Do you hear Windows' startup sounds? Do you see the Caps/Num lock lights blinking? If so, please let me know how many times it blinks.  I would suggest trying a hard reset, if you haven't already. A hard reset will drain all of the residual electricity out of the unit and give it a clean boot state. This can solve a lot of mysterious no-boot situations. 1. Disconnect the AC Adapter and battery.2. Press and hold the Power button for about 10 seconds, then release.3. Reinsert the battery and AC Adapter.4. Press the Power button to turn the computer on.

Hi,I have a Lenovo Z50-70 running Windows 8.1. The laptop is relatively new, bought in Jan. 2015.Some time ago, the original battery suddenly started to have a problem where it would say 45% available, plugged in, not charging. No matter what fixes I tried (after looking through a lot of articles, posts, comments, etc.), nothing made the battery start charging again. It always stays at 45%. Also the battery light/indicator on the front of the laptop is always blinking white.So I got a new battery, put it in hoping that it would work and charge up to 100%, but the new battery is having exactly the same problem as the original old one! It will only charge up to 45%, then it says plugged in not charging. The battery light is again always blinking white.What do I do? How can this be fixed? What's going on?Appreciate any help. Thank you very much.

A:Lenovo Z50-70 battery plugged in not charging, won't charge no matter what I do

Sounds like it may be either the charger or the charging port at fault here.  However, I have a couple of questions...1. Does the battery charge increase at all if you leave the machine turned off and plugged in, or does it still report 45%?2. Does it power on when only on battery power?3. Was the new battery a new, genuine Lenovo part?There seem to be a lot of people reporting similar issues with this model unfortunately.,156537.0.html

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 all this is my first post on these forums, and hope you guys can help.

My cousins laptop had some issues with the os, so I installed windows 7 ultimate 64-Bit, but the issue is when I plug it in it will not charge, the battery LED says it is but the battery icon says it isn't.
Or sometimes it says its plugged in (The icon) for only a while then it says its unplugged, once I re plug it it will back to say its charging and then so on.
It actually says its charging and have done the power button hold, the Microsoft ACAPI thing in the Device Manager and nothing works. I have no clue what this is and if there is something that could help.
Thanks for the help and If you need more details feel free to ask.

Hey how's it going everyone.
I have a quick question. I want to up grade my video card, but don't want to change the processor or anything else. Like i want to upgrade the card that sit fits my system specs, not sure if you get me.
My system spec.
Windows 7 professional 64bit
AMD Athlon 64x2 Dual core Processor 5400+
5G ram / ATi Radeon HD 4650 1G
480W power supply

A:lags in game

If you can get your hands on a 5850 that would be a good buy, they basically sold them out and never restocked when they released the 6950 so it might be a bit hard to find. My specs are very similar though and it's what I'm using I have no complaints. I think going anything higher is just going to lead to some really annoying bottlenecks. Plus I've played everything in 1080p so I'm happy with it.
Then again it may also be among the best choices given your power supply.

I don't really know which nvidia would be it's equivalent though.
If price is not a problem by all means go with a 4xx series nvidia.
I honestly don't see the point in going to the absolute newest model card from either company as you'll still be suffering from some drive lag anyhow (newer games just don't precache...)

Some games are lagging on my lumia 535.... I don't know the reason...... Games like Beast quest, LaraCroft relic run, temple run are lagging sometimes..... My phone with 1 GB ram.... Does it occur because of resolution or any other reason?? Plz tell me the reason.......

A:Game lags on my lumia535

The lumia 535 is not a very powerful phone and some games that require higher graphics will lag on it. The 500 series of lumias are low end affordable phones and were most likely not designed with mid to high end graphics gaming in mind. If you are running windows 10 mobile on it, that is much less text based than 8.1; therefore requiring more resources for the OS itself and leaving less for games.

Ok, so after some time playing this MMORPG called Runescape, which runs on Java. It becomes slightly sluggish, then gets even more sluggish after time. I have to restart my computer for it to run smoothly. But after a while it just gets sluggish again. I tried it both on IE7 and Firefox.

A:Need Help With Periodic Lags In Game.

Seems a typical case of overheating (with my old comp, I had the same issue and the GPU was fried). Check your GPU temps and post them. Do you get artifacts while playing games ?

You might want to defrag as well and indeed check for viruses.

A:Almost every game I play lags now.

When my computer got loud it was due to the thermal paste under the heatsink of my processor being 'hard' as it had been there for a while so I took the heatsink off and wiped the old paste off. I bought some Arctic Silver 5 from ebay, applied a pea sized amount to the middle and put the heatsink back on. It has been quiet ever since.

512MB Geil PC3200
MSI K7N2 Delta MB
MSI Geforce4 Ti4800SE

All Drivers are newly updated and I am running DirectX 8.1 on Windows XP as 9.0a had same problems.

When I run the dxdiag and the tests for DirectDraw it shows the boxes but they lag as they move.

I am not sure what is causing it and I have dont want to use DX9.0a? The same thing happens when I play UT2003 or any game.. IT LAGS and it isnt the connection as I have cable modem and go to fast servers (low ping) I also see my FPS as very inconsistant.

I never had this problem at all with WIN98SE and on XP I cant play a game without lag! My system is upto 2.1ghz and has latest nvidia drivers 44.03

no problem with my pc up until i start playing a game, the game is played for not too long before it freezes, the monitor will go blank then the game will continue only for it to happen moments later, i could turn the game off but the monitor continues blanking out before eventually turning off altogether claiming no signal is being recieved. restarting the computer resets the problem. This happens on every game i've tried from old school 'dungeon keeper' to new-ish rome:total war.

A:Game lags after updating to Windows 8.1

Dear niknak309 try to close the background apps (other than windows operations) in task manager and then see the lagg has gone or not. May be after updating to windows 8.1 your default graphic card may be changed to your laptop processer shared graphic memory. so try selecting the graphic card by right clicking on game's launcher and select 'run with graphic processer' and then your graphic card name. I hope this may solve your problem. Reply if this solution not works

I've experienced the same drop in performance in tf2 since the last few updates. I can only blame the update as I know nothing has changed for my system in the meantime.
All my other games work fine too, I was also forced to add a launch command as my voice stopped working without it.
This kind of stuff happens fairly often with software that is updated so regularly.

A:lags in mafia game w/9800pro

I have noticed a similar problem with planetside and my 9200SE...

I believe it has something to do with the game not being able to properly adress the AGP bus, look and see if mafia has an update patch and install that. If that does not help then in the ATI controll pannel goto "smart card" (i think) and turn AGP acceleration to off. Restart and run the game that should make the game run better, but remember to turn it back on for other games...

Hope this helps...

I've been using this windows 7 desktop for over a year, and everything has been fine until the past few days. When I minimize a program or when i maximize it when it is minimized, the program lags. For example, when I am running firefox and when i click the minimize button, instead of firefox minimizing in a swift motion, it minimizes slowly in other words, lagging. Also, when I play Warcraft the game lags. It lags in a really strange way, almost as if the game is drifting around when I move my mouse. Usually when games lag, the controls you make respond slowly, or it is in a jerky kind of way. I've tried restarting my computer many times, and all is well for the first 15 mins or so, before this lag kicks in. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

That lag has to do with internet lag (slow connection). Your lag would likely have more to do with a slow computer (but we'll see if we can fix that).
First order of business: What kind of antivirus do you have? You might couple Malwarebytes with it and see if malwarebytes finds anything. It is a known and reputable antimalware that works well with most antivirus software (Haven't heard otherwise). Update it and let it scan your computer.
I have this link to a list of tutorials that may provide you with a speed boost, try it out: Optimize Windows 7
You will need all your drivers installed and up to date. Could you please provide me with this information, and I will let you know what those drivers are: Fill out your system specs (this tool may help you out a great deal).

Well when I run an online game (Runescape) it runs quite good until it freezes for 1-2 seconds, then goes back to normal. It does this every 5-10 minutes and causes me alot of problems.

My laptop is fairly new and I have just re-installed Vista, but the specs are:

- Processer - (Intel Pentium Dual 1.73 GHz)
- RAM - (2G)

From looking at my processor and RAM it looks like the game should be running fine, and when I try and run the game in high detail it just lags completely, please help I've been looking everywhere for this solution!

A:My laptop lags when playing an online game!

Do you have antivirus software installed? Try disabling that during gameplay, or at the very least disable auto-updates as a test. Same goes for windows updates. Also, close any other windows and programs you aren't using before playing, it might make a difference.

Today i started playing DoW Dark Crusade and Company of Heroes, and i had no issues with my computer what so ever. Then i was wondering if Steam was still screwed up, so i started CoH through Steam and while playing my cpu usage will lag to 100% for 3-5 seconds. So i reinstalled Steam thinking it would solve the problem, but to no avail. I think it might be related to my 20 hour DoW 2 Beta download 2 weeks ago. What's weird is that lag only happens in the games after I have opened them through steam.

Are there any Steam problems that could be related?
This is not a cooling or internet problem.

My OS is XP service pack 3.

Plz help.

A:After starting games trough steam, game lags every minute or so.

if you have just re-installed steam it may be trying to update steam and any games that you are running from steam, make sure everything is completely up to date and try again. Had a similar problem once which was due to my wireless adapter, game would lag every 30 seconds or so when connecting using windows wireless software but was fine when i set up my wireless using the belkin wireless utility - maybe worth a try

Hello all. 
I have a non touch E5450 base, I want to put a touch screen top assembly onto it. I have sourced the whole top assembly including hinges. But I was wondering if the Hinge covers are different on this particular model depending on the screen used? I know some of the 7000 series have different hinge covers, but not sure about the 5000 series. 
Comparing photos on Google has been inconclusive and I am unable to find a part number. 

Anyone able to help me?

I have a Dell Inspiron 1545 computer that is about 3 years old. I just got a new battery for it about 3 or 4 months ago. I'm having trouble with it because I'll have my computer plugged in and it says, (plugged in, not charging). The second I take it off the charger it starts to lose it's charge, but while it's plugged in it holds it. I'm down to 13% and I really don't want to lose my computer. What should I do?

Hi and welcome to TSF did you get the battery from dell or elsewhere as batteries bought from after market sources do not always perform well and if your adapter works then you can still use the laptop admittedly somewhat limited, contact the seller and complain

I have a new Dell XPS 8910, with Intel i7 6700K processor, NVIDIA 970, 32 GB ram, 512 GB SSD and 2 TB HDD. Not a single app can slow it down, including the heavy eaters like the media processing applications from Adobe. My Chrome browser can open up to a few dozens of tabs at the same time without any trouble shifting between them thanks to the 32 gigs of ram. Yet, Edge cannot even open without being unresponsive a few times before it loads. It cannot even handle two tabs at once without both crashing. I am wondering what kind of browser needs more power than what my PC has to offer?

My dell inspiron 1501 laptop is a bit over 2 years old. My 1st power adapter broke after about 2 years. I bought another one ( a dell one on ebay) which broke after a month. I am now using a 3rd party one. It worked fine for a few weeks, but now the battery won't charge, the laptop will only run on AC power. I get an error message during boot up saying the Ac adapter type can't be determined and that the battery will not charge and I will not get optimal performance. I am running winXP home, and I also have ubuntu 8.10 installed as a dual boot. Any help resolving my issue will be greatly appreciated.

Right now it is running with no battery installed per a question from 2007, proving the power jack is ok. Now what else could it be? I replaced the adapter cord. This laptop has been without a working battery for a while. The original battery was a 14.8V and this one is an 11.1V, could that be the problem???

I will not have Internet access to your answer until Tuesday on a break from class.

Unplug the system, remove the battery and hold the power button for 30 sec.  Reinstall the battery and connect to AC power -- the  system should then power up.
If it doesn't, retry with the battery disconnected.  If it'll then power up, the battery is bad.
If it won't power up thereafter, the mainboard is bad.

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

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

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

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

I have a Dell Latitude D400 which is refusing to charge! The battery has now run out completely, I know the charger works because the green light is on when it is plugged in but it doesn't charge up the laptop! It doesn't fit snugly in the laptop either but the pins are all straight! I only got it a month ago so it's still under warranty but if it's something I can fix easily and by myself that would of course be the preferred option!

My laptop will not charge. Sometimes I can get it to work if I wiggle the cord around inside the receptor, but on the whole, it doesnt work. I've replaced the ac cable & the battery so I know they're not the cause, so I only think it can be the receptor itself.

I've bought a new one but have no idea how to fit it. Can anyone help?

Greetings--- I am a novice at fixing problems. When my Dell INSPIRON 8600 LAPTOP boots up it starts with this message " The Ac Power Adapter type cannot be determined. This will prevent optimal system performance" It then gives me 3 choices F1 continue boot -- F2 utility setup -- F3 ignore message in the future.

The laptop will not run unless plugged into charger as the battery is less than 7% charged and I receive a warning about the same.


I have had this laptop for 4 years and have had 0 problems til now.

Does anyone have an idea on what to do now?? Laptops are portable but I have to stay tethered to the cord to use. THANK YOU scoop2.2

I have a Dell laptop M1330 that was in perfect working condition until my son spilled his cup and water seeped under base and into the computer. A little water came onto the screen but it dried out and everything seems to be working fine with the exception of the battery which will not charge. I bought a replacement battery and AC Adapter but neither of these have changed the situation. The warranty is expired. Any ideas on what else it could be?

Thanks for your ideas.

The water may have damaged the motherboard and the components for charging

This may not work but should be no harm in trying
take the battery out and remove the adapter - hold the power button for a full 60 seconds - it has fixed boot issues before - i dont think it will help - but have no other suggestions to make

Yes, that could be the problem. You need to have the same voltage and other specs per the OEM's requirements.

Your system requires 14. 8V and 11.1V is NOT enough to run it.

You need to get yourself the correct battery and charging unit.

Hi and welcome.
There can be many reason for a slow, sticking shutdown.
It is usually cause by a program, application, driver not shutting correctly.

Check what is running in the task bar.
Try shutting one of them down at a time [right click the icon - exit program]
Then shut down your Pc.

Check Task Manager [right click task bar] and see what is using the most resources.
End that program and then shutdown your Pc.

Let us have some Pc specifications.
