Battery (laptop) suddenly stopped charing

Q: Battery (laptop) suddenly stopped charing

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

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

Its a HP Probook 650 G1

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.

I ve been having a strange problem with the battery for my Thinkpad laptop I noticed Battery Stopped Working Thinkpad Suddenly the other day that Thinkpad Battery Suddenly Stopped Working it wasn t charging when I plugged the AC adapter in Eventually it ran out completely and would not charge at all This happened very suddenly it was working fine a week ago If I have the battery installed and AC attached and hit the power button the system will start up for a few seconds and then shut down Sometimes it will randomly start AGAIN for another few seconds and then shut down The only way I can get the computer to run is with the battery removed and AC adapter attached If I start the computer up with the AC adapter attached and then insert the battery the computer immediately powers down I really want to get this problem resolved I m hoping that it s just the battery itself but it seems strange that it would stop working so suddenly From my experience laptop batteries tend to lose their power over time And even if the battery was no good shouldn t the computer still work as long as the AC line is connected I have no problem replacing the battery I m just not certain that this is the real issue It seems that the AC adapter works fine Is this likely just a battery problem or is it possible that the motherboard is damaged nbsp

A:Thinkpad Battery Suddenly Stopped Working

Hi Dan and welcome to TSG.

I assume your Thinkpad's warranty has run out.

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

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

Sorry I can't be more specific.

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

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

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

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

Any idea how can I fix it.

A:Battery suddenly stopped working on NB200-10z


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

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

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

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

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

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 ?

Hello there,
I have a HP550 laptop and I'm not quite sure what the problem is with it. It randomly, and very suddenly turns off if not charging (much like a car conking out), even if it is fully charged. It doesn't charge well, and you have to twist the charger to make it charge. I'm not sure if this is the fault of the battery or of where the charger meets the laptop (sorry I don't know what it's called :/ ).
If you could help it would be very much appreciated. Thank you.

A:laptop suddenly turning off- battery's fault or not?

If it's overheating, it'll shut down to prevent damage to the internal components.

Make sure it's being used on a hard flat surface and not a soft uneven surface that blocks the exhaust vents.

Make sure the exhaust fan is working and cycles on and off from time to time.

Make sure the exhaust vents aren't clogged with dust and debris.


What's the model name and model number of that HP laptop?

Look at the sticker and advise what the product number(P/N) is.

Have power management set to warn of critical and low battery, used to warn fine..
Stopped warning, now just shuts down.. Any ideas how I can restore warnings?

Also, having problems when I plug in set so display brightness should go to 100%, sometimes I have to plug/replug cause it stays dim from battery settings..

I did have some issue a few weeks ago with some new unrecognized power profile appearing (I guess after I installed some program or win update..?)

Any way to restore just the power profiles to default and undo any changes any programs may have made?

* Can I check win 7 logs & reports specifically for changes made to the power management, perhaps?....

Hi all,
Lately I've had my laptop plugged in a lot because I've been running some design analysis software thats required a long time to solve. Anyway my laptop suddenly just cut off today whilst on battery. Straight away I assumed it was the battery as I had a similar issue back in 2010 with my old device. I've had my current laptop for about 2 and a half years. I ran a battery report which came up with the following information:
Cycle count: 489Design capacity: 48840Last full charge: 38373
So its obvious my battery isn't at full capacity as expected. However, could this be the cause of it randomly losing power? I'm thinking more of a calibration issue. Any ideas on how to calibrate?

Many thanks in advance!

My HP celeron laptop, about 15 months old, is suddenly unable to start unless plugged into the mains.

When it is, it says the battery is 96% chared with 11 hrs of unfeasible battery life. Once then disconnected, it still runs, though not sure how long for.

Shut down, and the battery charging light blinks frequently,but the laptop won't start at all.

What do hyou think has happened? If the battery has gone I think this is poor for a HP machine and will try to get them/and/or the vendor to replce even though what was a 12m warranty has expired.

I have got a acer aspire 5830tg. Recently I got the "black screen of death" on my laptop. Since I'm on a travel and the international traveller warranty is still valid I took it to Acer service center in Seoul. 2 days later I got it back, working. Nobody was speaking any english and all they said was two words: "Memory error". After that i noticed that the battery doesnt hold up that long any more. it used to last about 6 hours. Now two weeks later it has gone worse every day plus the remaining doesn't make any sense any more. Im not sure it has something do to with the repair they did. How should I resolving the problem?
Thank You!

Open processes and sort by CPU to see what's causing the spikes.
- Running the laptop without battery while AC power attached.
- Safe Mode - see if spikes happen
- if Safe Mode is ok, try a clean startup Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup
- Select high performance power option

Sound like a driver problem.

Did you do the clean Windows install from the Lenovo recovery partition and install all the system specific drivers? If not, visit the Lenovo Support site. Unlike some laptops, my Lenovo Yoga 13 didn't come with an automatic driver update program. You have to download their drivers and such.

They have changed their support site several times so now it's very easy to get the right drivers.

Hi CHOA18,
I would need more info about the issue.
What is the exact system model? When you state the system does not turn on, do you see any leds come on when the power button is pressed? Are you using an original Dell OEM Adapter? When you plug in the adapter to the system, does the adapter stay firm or does it fall off easily? Is the adapter frayed? Is there any damage on the system? Could you test with another power adapter if possible? Does the adapter led stay on and stable or does it go off when connected to the system?
Also, please click my DELL-username and write me a private conversation with the service tag and your contact details(Name and Email) for case records.
Let us know if you have any other queries.

So here's the deal, my GF's 3 year old HP laptop, a Pavilion dv6000 series, suddenly stopped booting correctly yesterday, every time it boots, a message appears saying:

"Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem:

1. Insert your Windows installation disc and restart your computer.
2. Choose your language settings, and then click "Next".
3. Click "Repair your computer".

If you do not have this disc, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance.

File: \windows\system32\config\system

Status: 0x000014c

Info: Windows failed to load because the system registry file is missing, or corrupt."

If I press enter, it then shows the OS I want to load, when I select Windows 7 Home Premium, the same message appears.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I've had a Lenovo Ideapad Y40-70 for a month or so now and, although it worked this morning, it suddenly stopped turning on. When I push the power button, the light on the power button, the battery light, and the power light will come on white for a few seconds, and then nothing. It won't even boot to BIOS. I had the Lenovo logo show up for a fraction of a second like twice, but that was about it. I tried opening it up and taking out/putting back in the battery, and that didn't work. Nor did letting it sit and charge for a few hours as was recommended on another website.

Edit: I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this. Correct me if I'm in the wrong board.

We have a wireless router on our home PC so that my dad can also access the internet on his work's laptop. This has never been a problem until this week, a colleage tampered with his settings so that he could access the network provided on a work course.

For some reason he now can't access our home internet. See screengrab - ours is the 3com one (note the padlock). What do I need to do to get his laptop working on our connection again? Cheers

A:Security suddenly stopped laptop wireless access

He regularly connects to all those different networks, or he just likes to collect profiles?

"I already checked the sound driver, no question marks appeared"... Do you mean no exclamation points like this (!)? If you can hear normal sound from the headset the sound driver is okay. This could be caused by a keyboard setting. Make sure the sound is all the way up and that it is not muted

in simple terms,

my brothers pc, (Samsung all-in-one job) has USB ports on it, that allow you to charge devices, iPad's iPhone's whilst the pc is turned off?!
this must a thing of the norm to everyone else, but its something I would love to install on my pc !

obviously their is power running to the pc, I understand that, but still amazes me that it charges whilst the pc is in its 'off state' ...

so im guessing I need a usb pci card, but does anyone what type, sort etc ? any good makes out their that people have experience with ?

many thanks in advance


A:Charing USB needed ... ?

Amazon, Tiger Direct, New Egg, etc., will have pretty much what you are looking for regardless of the manufacture.

I bought a "Serial Technologies Expander USB 3.0 (four slot) card from "New Egg." The cost of $35.00 is a little higher than most, albeit the thinking was to put in a good one instead of cheap. It supports USB 3 and USB 2. The only real problem is the slots are at the rear of the Computer (not a deal breaker).

Hope this helps. . .

Oh, one more thing, it needs to be able to hook up to a PCI-E 2 slot, and have an available power connection.

Hi Sunil_poojary , 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
What is the current Windows version you have ? 
When did it start happening ? 
Ideally best to check the battery report after allowing it to fully drain and to have it plugged in for 2-3 hours without turning it on. Notice the battery indicator (page 29) as it should change the battery status as seen in the manual. 
Manually checking operational charging and battery pack (page 21) can help determine battery integrity as it deteriorate thru usage.
Uninstalling Microsoft ACPI compliant driver from the device manager and power management software to see if there are significant changes after restart. Check your current BIOS version if same as the ones offered on the support site.
Update us how things go.

I have my old Nokia Lumia 1020 with a broken USB connector. I have tried to replace it but failed. From what I know, the phone still works. I want to just buy the wireless charging case and all that BUT I cannot find anyone anywhere that sells it. If I can't find a wireless charger case - has anyone ever replaced the USB connector on a 1020 before? I would love some tips etc.

Hi, please advise. I've had this s20-30 just over 2 years and suddenly it began randomly shutting off. It now will not turn on at all.Holding power button down whether plugged in or not just blinks the orange battery indicator 3 times.Holding the safe mode button flashes the white indicator once.How do I determine if the issue is the battery or the power supply?Thanks in advance

I have a U430 Touch and suddenly it's giving me he message "Your battery is damaged and needs to be replaced." The battery meter says it's fully charged. On top of this, I think there isn't a good contact for the power adapter and if I move my laptop, it turns off. Has anyone seen this happen? I assume I'll need to replace the battery (joy) but it seems odd since I haven't had battery issues until now.

Hi everybody,I have a Lenovo yoga 2 11'. Windows 10 1511. About one month ago I shutted it down, I don't remember if it was charged or not. I turned it on some days ago and seems that the battery died. What can we do?EM is installed and says that everything is fine. The computer works fine if plugged, but if I unplug it doesn't. Windows and EM say that "battery is charging at 0%". The LED is orange and blinks.If you need other details feel free to ask.EDIT: Latest BIOS installed, Windows is updated, there is no "USB Always on" option in the BIOS.?

A:My Satellite L50-A-16Q turns off suddenly while on battery

Hi Matteo

On this virtual way it is not easy to say what is wrong there. It would be interesting to know exact battery capacity when this happen.

Using advanced power options you can change many important values so I recommend you to test all this. Try to use notebook with power saver power plan and lower CPU activity.
I don't know if the CPU or any other hardware component reach critical temperature level but please be careful how do you use your machine. Cooling fans must be free and your notebook must be able to ?take a breath?.

Try to test usage with different power plans and using it on the desk only, not placed on the knees or your bed.

By the way: cooling fan activity can be defined in advanced power settings > Toshiba power saver > cooling method. Check it out.

I own a Dell Studio 15 laptop, usually I get about 3 1/2 to 4 hours of battery life on powersaver mode, depending on what I have turned on and stuff. But when i checked my battery a day ago, I only had 1 hour and 45 minutes of battery life at 100%!! I know that battery life drains over time, but this was so sudden! I lost 2 hours of battery life overnight! Could anyone explain what has happened and how I could go about fixing this problem?

Thanks a bunch!

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.

I've been using the Microsoft Wireless Broadband router (MN-500) to connect to the internet. This afternoon, while I was away, the wireless connection was suddenly lost. The internet is fine, because when i plug my computer directly into the router (via ethernet), i am able to access the internet. However, the router does not seem to broadcast a wireless signal for the LAN.

I've reset the router, both manually and via the software and reconfigured the network. After this process, the Wireless Network sometimes appears momentarily in Windows...but the connection drops before it can connect.

All the lights on the router light up as normal and it indicates that both the wireless LAN and the WAN are working properly. I have no idea why I can't connect to the network wirelessly though...

Any thoughts?

Hi, one day I started my laptop and the SSD in it (MZ-7PC256D) suddenly stopped working.

What options do I have to get it working, or atleast recover the data in it.

I tried putting it in another laptop or checking in BIOS, it's simply not getting detected.

The SSD gets super hot when I connect it to the laptop and start it.

Not to be harsh, but when you get it working again thru what ever means you might have to do, make an image on a flash drive or what ever you choose and then, if the SSD has failed completely, install a new one and use the image to bring you back to the time of your last backup.

I suddenly lost sound on my computer after running without problems for months.

I checked the system settings and my volume is turned up, but when I adjust it, all I get is a beep from the internal speaker. I ran a game that makes sound continuously and plugged a headset into the speaker jack on one of the speakers to see if anything is making it that far. I got a very weak signal, but I moved the mouse around and I was definitely hearing all the sounds the computer generates, not just the CD background music.

I am running Windows XP on a Gateway 700. I think the sound card is a Creative SB Audigy. I installed a CD-R a month ago, but have been running fine. I checked all the jacks and everything is plugged in correctly.

Any ideas?

This morning, the sound stopped working, however, the only sound i can get is if i go to the realtek sound manager thing by gigabyte tech. (Audio device:Realtek AC97 i think) and then start the jack sense thing. I get a few 'zap' sounds but if i play music, then the music will play with the 'zaps' but only for a second or 2, then no sound.
After the jack-sense, i get a pop up saying i needa check the front and center/subwoofer speakers, but the speakers are in-built to my monitor, so i don't know what to do...

Sound was working fine yesterday, but failed this morning.


P.S. i tried plugging in several headphones on the front of the comp, but no sound.

A:Suddenly sound stopped, help.

Okay Syzion

This is primarily due to two things:

1. Your Sound-drivers are either not there anymore.

2. Your Sound card is defective.

Check your Sound card Drivers first:

If Windows Go> Start> Control Panel > Sound Settings > I think its the General Tab it should allow you to move the sound up and down. If it "grayed out" then
your sound card drivers are missing. (sorry I am on a MAC right now)

OR-->Start>My Computer> Device Manager> Check under the Sound Card make sure there is NO yellow "?" on the Sound-card realtek..
I would right click on the Sound Card and click "Update Drivers"

Post your reply to see if the Drivers are there...

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 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 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 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.....

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%)
So I hope this works!
Reply me back when you've succeeded fixing it.

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.

Dear sadmanshams,
Welcome in Lenovo Community.
Does the battery charge over when you connect the charger or it keeps saying 0% available, charging?
What happen if you disconnect the charger while the machine is showing 0%, will it go off?
Also please advise with the Windows version running on your machine.
Waiting for your kind reply.

Hello,Hope I've posted the question in right category. My laptop is 1.5 years old. Was working fine,with battery backup of 4 hours,until one day the battery died suddenly. The laptop didn't turn on. After taking it to a technician, I got to know that I've to buy a new battery pack. I bought a compatible battery with specifications 14.4v and 2200mAh (4 cell). After replacing it, I'm facing with an annoying problem. The laptop suddenly shuts down automatically, when working on battery. It works fine if I use only adapter. There's no definite time period of shutting down. Sometimes it happens twice a day, or won't happen even for 4 days continuously. I've disposed off my original battery, and didn't remember its configurations. The manual requirement says 41Whr 4 cell. Please help me in this case. Really in a need of urgent help! P.s. Got the heat sink checked, and there is no heating problem in laptop.Thanks

My computer is an HP Pavilion dv6t-7000. I purchased a 9-cell battery as second battery and I switch it out from time to time with my other battery. I have never had a problem with it charging or keeping a charge. Suddenly, I find that it won't charge above 47% of capacity. Only two of the four LED lights on the battery will light up. It charges up to 47% and stops. It will show that the unit it plugged in but not charging.  If I was seeing a degradation of the battery over time, I could accept that, but this happened suddenly. Any thoughts or suggestions?

Hello Geoaddict, Thank you for posting on the HP Forums! I understand the battery will not charge to 100%. To start, please try Testing and Calibrating the Battery. You should be able to find out if the battery has any issues.. If the battery appears to be fine, you can try to improve your battery performance.  For more information on improving battery performance, please review the following document: Improving Battery Performance (Windows 8, 7, Vista). If none of this helps, you can try purchasing a replacement battery if the computer isn't in warranty. If it is, you should be able to get a replacement over HP phone support. You can utilize this website to learn how to contact HP appropriately, based on your region: Contact HP Worldwide Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns, and if this helped you. Thanks for choosing the HP Forums. Have a great day! Mario

My LAN and WiFi suddenly stopped working. It was working fine for several hours before now. I decided to take a break and pour myself some coffee and give a package to the postman. Gone for maybe 10 minutes at the most.

When I came back, the LAN and WiFi mysteriously had stopped functioning. I know nobody touched anything because I am the only one who uses this computer. I tried disabling and re-enabling, as well as re-installing the drivers. This is a work network, and everyone else's connection seems fine, and I can't seem to figure out what's wrong. Keep in mind I can't just re-set the router because this is not a home network.

I use my laptop regularly to present via LCD projectors using a VGA cable. After a break of 4 weeks, I cannot get the output to work.  On one projector / cable, the display kept flickering on and off, as if the connection to my laptop was physically wobbly at the location where the VGA cable meets the laptop.  On the next projector / cable, my laptop registered that the cable was stable and connected and offered the display options for dual display.  However the display was not shown on the screen.  Both projectors / cables work well with other laptops. Any ideas?

Hi everyone ...
Can I pick someone's brains again please?
I have a Netgear router (WGR614UK) which, until recently was chatting away quite happily to my Belkin laptop dongle - usually establishing a strong connection. However, having not used the laptop for a month or so, the connection has now vanished ... and nothing I can do seems to restore it. Have even replaced the original Belkin with another 'Surfing' one. Choosing a wireless network comes up with my 'Automatic' connection (which doesn't do anything 'automatic' until I go searching for it), but then connection attempts show 'Waiting for the network ...' and then nothing else.
If you've seen my previous posts, I must look like (and probably am) a total dummy with these things, but I sure as hell would be grateful for help again.

Hi everyone, I've been using a D-link DIR-615 router successfully to connect to the internet for about 7 weeks. Up until now, it was working perfectly, both wirelessly and wired. It's also using the latest firmware (4.00).

The internet status LED on the front of the router is orange instead of green. When accessing the admin panel, it shows a blank IP address so I believe it's having trouble getting an IP address from the modem.

I've tried rebooting it numerous times and still the internet light remains orange and it's not working. I've even tried restoring it to the factory settings but to no avail. The internet works fine if I connect to the modem directly so it's definately the router at fault.

Does anyone know why it would suddenly stop working after such a short time? I'm out of ideas.

hi all. not quite sure how it came about but my usb ports are not picking up any of my devices - ext hard drive, ext sound card etc. although the devices still light up as normal. there was new hardware trying to install itself the day this happened calling itself Human Interface Device with a load of numbers after it. i declined to install it but it still asks me if i want to start the install wizard after every reboot. i went into the usb 'bit' in the device manger, saw this human interface device at the end of the last usb and decided to delete it. this hasn't worked. anyone any ideas?
i use xp.

I've looked everywhere for a solution to this, but everyones problem seems to be slightly different to mine, and nothing I've tried works anyway...

I have a Dell Inspiron 6000 (I know it's pretty s**t) and the cd drive for it is a TSST
TS-L532B and a couple of weeks ago it just stopped recognising any disks (audio, CD, DVD etc). The computer recognises the drive (it appears in My Computer) but when I put a CD in I can hear it whizz around try to read it, but it never works...

I tried download some new firmware for it but no luck...

The sound on my laptop stopped working suddenly . It had been working fine for about 1 year since I upgraded to Windows 10 .  It says "No output device is installed " under playback devices .But the IDT high definition Audio Codec shows up in Device Manager . If I tried to update driver, it fails . I can hear audio if I connect an external sound card , but not just regular headphones or from the laptop's speaker .When i tried Troubleshooting , it failed with the error code 0x80131018I have already tried all steps recommended by HP Support Assitant .Even tried Restting the laptop (all applications were deleted , but files restored) , but still no sound .

If you use original Toshiba recovery image (preinstalled Vista version) something like this should not happen. You can use this recovery image so often you want but it will always be activated version.
With your notebook you have also paid valid licence for preinstalled Vista.

What to do?
Use recovery DVD and install Vista again.

Ok a few days ago port forwarding just stopped working with the exception of a couple ports the remote desktop port and a netBIOS port and possibly a couple others The first thing I did was check that it was set up correctly and it is Then I checked both firewalls router and windows and both were off as is normal for me After that I tried DMZ and Static NAT both failed The stopped suddenly forwarding Port two exceptions I mentioned above would still work but nothing Port forwarding suddenly stopped else I updated my router s firmware - nothing I ve tried disabling my antivirus still nothing Then I turned the firewall on the router on nothing the windows firewall and I got something With the windows firewall on ports time out However if I add a port to the windows firewall exception list that port will say its closed Windows Firewall Block port Time out Windows Firewall Allow port Closed Now how does that make any sense So it seems to me the problem must be somewhere in Windows but I can t think of anything I have no other firewall installed antivirus hasn t blocked ports before and disabling it doesn t do anything anyways any ideas BTW just before this happened I had Apache installed and was doing some testing with it But since then I ve uninstalled it But thats the only significant thing that happened before everything got blocked Also my router is a Westell Versalink w came free with DSL lol Any ideas at all will be apreciated nbsp

Is it possible that your ISP is blocking the ports on which you want to forward? Some ISPs block 80 and 21.
