This is how much Microsoft charges OEMs for Windows 8.1 with Bing

Q: This is how much Microsoft charges OEMs for Windows 8.1 with Bing

Microsoft has yet to reveal how much it plans to charge PC manufacturers (or customers) for Windows 10. In the meantime, however, a new document published on the company's OEM Partner Center site sheds a bit more light on how...

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: This is how much Microsoft charges OEMs for Windows 8.1 with Bing

"Given this knowledge, it?ll be interesting to see how much Microsoft is planning to charge for Windows 10".

I predict it will somewhere around three figures to the left of the decimal point, and to the right of the EULA.

Maybe we should just hope that it's not an attempt at a subscription only offering.

From Neowin
OEMs can no longer purchase licenses for Windows 7 or 8.1

Are you planning on buying a PC that has Windows 7 Professional or 8.1 pre-installed? Well, you'd better act quickly, as Microsoft has stopped selling licenses for the operating systems. The news should not come as a surprise, as the company is following its long-standing end-of-sales dates.

As you can see, as of today, the only Microsoft-developed OS that you can get pre-installed on a new PC is Windows 10. Luckily, Windows Vista, 7, and 8.1 are all still supported, and will continue to be for some time.

The end of extended support for Vista will be in April of next year, and for Windows 7 it will be January, 2020. Windows 8.1 will still be offered mainstream support until 2018, and then extended support won't end until 2023.Click to expand...

As you may know that Microsoft is making its own quot Surface quot tablet as well as its own smartphone And it seems their intention is to make everything and Apple's model! OEMs users following End Microsoft & business like notebooks desktops ultrabooks themselves just like Apple does and this has already created tension between MS and the OEMs May be MS completely adopts the Apple model and stop licensing Windows to OEMs and end users I am very worried about this prospect I am primarily a desktop user as well as I use a HP End users & OEMs and Microsoft following Apple's business model! laptop I like to build my own PC as it is cheaper and I have all the freedom to choose the hardware for it But if what I mentioned above really happens I won't be able to do that Its easy to say that I could simply buy the desktop made by Microsoft But that would be very expensive as far as I think And if MS started to build everything I would not be able to buy Windows as well as hardware to assemble my PC as the hardware manufacturers would stop making it for the general market Also I won't be able to buy a cheaper alternative from any OEMs Do you think that all can happen And if that happens what would be the possible alternatives for the end users like me What are your views Kindly inform

A:End users & OEMs and Microsoft following Apple's business model!

We have to establish resistance.....

With AMD dropping the High End market, price of Hard Drive, death of the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. II project, and now Windows 8; it's a very bad time for PC builders like US. I like to build high end Water Cooled PCs, but to justified 2, 3 or even 4 High End GPU in a PC , you need to use it for gaming and the way I see it; more and more games companies will drop the PC to turn to consoles, that's the real problem, for peoples who like to build PC. You can't count on games companies to code their product for Linux, it will be too much work for them, they will simply make consoles versions.

When a computer technician downloads the Microsoft Security Essentials, which I understand is free, he can, of course, charge for the work he did. However, can he charge for the software and tell me I'll have to renew it at the end of the year for a reduced price? Is this legitimate?

Thank you.

No it is not. The software is free, as are the updates as long as you use genuine Windows.

Losing money is one way to make OEMs and ODMs nervous, and my contacts within some of the world's largest OEMs are telling me that they're far from convinced that Windows 8, or Windows RT -- otherwise known as Windows 8 on ARM -- will be any more successful against the iPad than Android was.

Hi there
some of your contacts must probably be using out of date data -- OK I see Florida as part of your area probably explains why since the latest smartphones we are using in Europe were out a few months earlier than in that part of the USA.

We in Europe had the Galaxy III s a few months before you -- running on ICS (latest release of Android) it's stolen the market by storm --actually DOES what people want it to do without having to go through ITunes / Apple "App" store etc etc and is proving a HUGE winner for Samsung -- plus it connects via Bog standard USB connectors - takes bog standard micro sdHC cards and has a beautiful clear screen.

The latest offering from HTC is also very good -- both these phones make the Iphone look positively Old Fashioned -- and when was the last time could anybody say that about an Apple product -- whatever the cost and irksome restrictions Apple products did have the "Wow" look.

Android ICS has actually morphed into quite a passable OS -- I expect with Google's resources it will only get better too.

Apple's fortunes won't dramatically change overnight -- but these two "New kids on the Block" should certainly give cause for concern over apple's future direction.

These smart phones obviate the need for a tablet anyway since the screen is large enough for most purposes - but Samsung's next generation of tablets will certainly be an "Ipad Killer" and could probably run Windows 8 as well as Android if required.

Even the Ubiquitous Ipod won't IMO be much longer for this world -- the latest generation of smartphones can have removable 32 GB storage cards where you can store your music and play using software on the phone -- I use Winamp just like on a PC. Battery life on these has improved hugely as well.

Why do I need an Ipod any more -- I can just copy music from my PC - no ITunes or whatever needed - and am good to go. The DAC in these phones (Digital to Analog converter) are very good -- the phones have QUAD processors anyway so plenty of muscle for decent DAC conversion and with a pair of proper Cans (Bose / Sennheiser etc) and ability to play Native FLAC as well as most of the other formats -- no need for Ipods any more.

Check again at Apple's results in 6 months and if you include costs of their idiotic and seemingly endless Court battles with Samsung and HTC the results won't make good new year reading for Apple's shareholders for 2013.

I'm drooling with anticipation to hear what the official comments are from the big OEMs regarding Windows 8 and how it will be affecting their sales of PCs laptops and desktops, and the avalanche of complaints they will have when customers receive their new OEM PCs.

Anyone working for HP, Dell, Lenovo, Acer, Toshiba, ect that can give us insight into how these companies are reacting and gearing up for Windows 8?.

Honestly I wonder if some of the OEMs will simply continue to offer the option of Windows 7 until MS no longer supports it. I have a feeling that we WILL be seeing this angle from the more business oriented OEMs like HP, Lenovo, and Dell.

A:What are the OEMs official stance on how Windows 8 will affect sales?

I don't work for any of them, but I will offer some speculation to the mix. They are pumped and ready. Even LONG before a release of Windows 8 was announced for beta testing and development, Intel, Qualcomm, NVIDIA, and AMD were already building chips just for Windows 8 tablets. It's rumored that by the release of Windows 8 or at least November, there should be at LEAST 30 different tablet offerings running 8. I think Intel will be the main supplier of those chips as well. There is already huge speculation with the Surface tablet, although Acer poshes it. Speaking the business end, HP won't be offering a WinRT tablet and will be sticking with the traditional Windows to please their business partners, they're building tablets for Windows 8. One of their business oriented tablets already has some leaked pictures of it, as does a Dell tablet. Even at the recent PC expo this summer, ASUS, Acer, Samsung and other OEMs showed off their PCs running Windows 8. I would think there is a resounding tone of support and oomph for Windows 8 in the tablet space as well as the tradition PC space.

Although I would LOVE to hear from an insider as well...

Hey - Color me stupid, but is it OK to buy an OEM version of a program? I mean, I know you don't have access to tech support like you do when you buy full retail versions...but as long as the OEM is original (and not a cd-r copy, etc.), I'm not doing anything wrong, right?

I ask this because there are some outlets that have OEM versions of software at some great prices...and I'm all for saving a buck!
 

A:OK to use OEMs?

Yes its perfectly legal.

I have Win 98 and Win XP both OEM on my two PCs. As you state you usually don't get the tech support, and the software is often in a shrink wrap rather than a shiny box.

You can a) burn your own disks from the recovery partition (type REC into the start/search field and go to "Recovery disk creation" - that is the wizard that will guide you) - have 3 DVDs handy, or b) call HP who will usually send a disk for a S&H charge ($20 I last did that). If you tell them that burning from the recovery partition did not work, they may even send you a free one. There are no download options for that.

However, yesterday I came across a post on how to change the default search engine in Edge so I changed it to Google without delay.
But then every search came up with an annoying message box in the upper right-hand corner telling me to install Chrome. After half an hour I had gotten so tired of it, I switched it back to Bing.

Hi
The new Windows 8.1 with Bing has some limitations about default search providers and start page and are only available for OEM manufactures. Other than that is there any limitations on Windows 8.1 with Bing or is it the same as Windows
8.1 standard editions?
So far I have not been able to find any limitations myself.

Hi Thomas,
There is no any limitation between OEM bing search and Retail Edition.
You could take full advantage of it either in OEM Windows 8.1 or Retail Windows 8.1.

Spoiler (Highlight to read)  My HP Stream 11 crashed, it used windows 8.1 with bing so I as looking all over the web to find it but I couldnt so I had to use the normal windows 8.1 iso that was available on Microsoft which didnt work with my product key that I had because it only works with windos 8.1 with bing so im stuck with using a generic key for the normal version of windows (key that alows you to boot windows but not all settings are available)  and I want to upgrade to windows 10 but the only way I can upgrade is if I activate windows which my product key does not work with the normal version of windows 8.1 and only with the version with bing which from what I hear is only available to manufacturers PLEASE HELP.

A:How do I get back windows 8.1 with bing

Hi: You would have to order a set of recovery media from HP for your specific HP Stream product number. The product number can be found on the same sticker as the serial number. Enter the product number in the box at the link below and you should be directed to the support and driver page for your specific model. Select the W8.1 operating system from the drivers section, and the last item on the list should be a link to order recovery media. http://h22207.www2.hp.com/us-en

Hi guys,
need some help.
Well I have a small acer notebook and I had Windows 8.1 with Bing preinstalled (oem) 64 without key (I think it's inside the firmware right?).
Well I've installed windows 10 preview and I did a stupid thing, I remove some files so windows 10 took place of the reset button partition.
So if I try to clean the computer it installs windows 10 preview.
Is there any chance to install 8.1 with bing oem 64?
If so how?
There was italian language inside but I could chose english or other languages.
Is there an iso? (it was "with bing").
I read a good guide in here but the isos were without bing and the guide says (not for people with bing).
... so... help please!
Thanks !

A:Bing weather app not working in Windows 8

Hi js73,
I wish I had an answer for you, but I'm hoping that matching your problem may help us resolve it. I have the same problem.

Here's my version:
It's my father's notebook that I look after, brand new Samsung with a config that's a lot like yours: win8-64, i7, 8GB. Main diff is that it has Nvidia graphics, but similar. Also has a dual monitor (Medion, 23cm)
...And exactly the same problem. The native Bing Weather app just does not work. (Also, the Travel app).
Mostly everything else works fine. (But not some of the Samsung utilities, Flash player, etc)

Symptom: App starts up but just sits there like its trying to get going - never goes anywhere...

OK. My take..and some of the stuff I've done:
- There's another notebook sitting right next to the Samsung, an Asus C2D, older (also Win8-64) - and all apps work fine on it!
- All was working fine on this machine until one of the massive updates about a month ago appeared to wreck everything. I struggled for days with the whole Metro interface not working. Apps would open for a second and then close.
- Tried refreshes AND resets, no go
- Found a good blog that said uninstall and resinstall al the apps that were doing that - I had tried some, but didn't realize I could try it with native apps (was hesitant to do so). But that brought all back - except for 4: News, Weather, Travel and Finance (not that he wants it)
- Tried many app uninstalls and resinstalls. No go
- Then a couple of days ago he saw that there were app updates pending for News and Finance - and they fixed both those apps.
- Weather and Travel still don't work.
You still seeing the problem? I think they will only work when MS sends down an update that fixes some deep seated problem that is causing those apps to crash in this specific environment combination ...whatever it is ... I suspect that MS knows all these problems but is trying to make sure they really fix them before releasing the updates ... hope I'm not being optimistic here!

Overall I'm trying to be a Win8 fan. Love the interface visually, (looks great) and the fact that they tried something radical and new - but I am realizing that they have heaps of problems under the covers. I myself have it running in VMware WS 9 and its great - but I would not put it on my main PC till I am sure I will not lose a) reliability and b) functionality.

Anyway - would be interested in where you are with this problem - and especially when it failed - was the failure update-initiated?

I have a feeling (more intuitive than knowledge based) - that many of the current Win8 problems come from graphics, permissions or timing (or combinations of those).

cheers

Hello Henry,

Whenever a new version of Bing is released, you will see it appear again in Windows Update again since it's technically a new and separate update than the one you hidden.

I turned off Bing through the settings but that doesn't seem to get rid of Bing for searching from the address bar.

Hi, I am looking to buy a laptop here in Germany where I live, but as an 'auslander' (i.e foreigner), my native language is English, so I'm wondering if its possible to change the user language to English on the low-end laptops equipped with 'Windows 8.1 with Bing.'

From what I have read online, there are supposedly no handicaps or limitations for the end user for the Bing-version Windows, however, I have noted from this article that the "About Windows" screen cap states something to the effect of it being a 'single language.'

Does this mean that I cannot switch to everything being in English with this version of Win 8.1, or is it still possible to add a language pack?

Thank you!

A:Adding Language Pack to 'Windows 8.1 with Bing'

Hi Gb33, welcome to the Eight Forums.

Myself an ex-pat living in Germany I know how important but sometimes difficult it is to find a computer here with pre-installed OS in any other language than German. Luckily Windows 8 made this a bit easier due language packs being available in all editions except single language edition.

Windows 8.1 with Bing is available in four different versions. One of them, Windows 8.1 with Bing China we can forget . Remains Windows 8.1 with Bing Single Language, Win 8.1 with Bing N and normal Windows 8.1 with Bing. You can use language packs (change display language from German to any language) in both N and normal versions, the Single Language can only be used in its original language.

Short: ask the store, check what version of Windows 8.1 with Bing the laptop has. Version N comes without Windows Media Player and other media features but these can be easily added by yourself with no cost (Download Media Feature Pack for N and KN versions of Windows 8.1 from Official Microsoft Download Center). You can use language packs in version N to change your display language. Windows 8.1 with Bing normal version has all media features and can also use language packs.

Be careful, check that you will not get a German Single Language version.

My Dell XPS battery charges only to 99%. Technical support said this is a "normal" occurrence if you have "adaptive" charging on in the BIOS. They asked me to update the BIOS and then change it to "custom" charging. The battery now charges to 100%.
Is this normal behaviour or just a messy "fix"? I just want to confirm if this is a papered over fault, because I suspect that it is. Personally I am not too pleased with having to call Dell technical support on the day I opened my new laptop!

A:Charges for OS installation?

This can only be answered very broadly. To install and configure an o/s usually takes around 2 hours (if all runs well) and I usually charge around AU$120.00 for this service. I went the route you did first time around and applied "mates rates" until I found that I, all of a sudden, acquired a lot of "mates"! Now I charge the same for everyone regardless of who they are - saves a lot of agro and the client knows what the bill will be. Don't fall for the "I can't afford it" line - if they really can't afford it then they don't get the job done. Most can (at my rates anyway) and will fork out the $$$$'s to get their machine back in running order.

In your case, if a client made comments like "it's not like your digging ditches..." then the price would rise by 50%! People don't take into account that whilst you are waiting for the software to install (and maybe having coffee while it does) it's YOUR time you're using up and, as such, should be billed to the client. The installer may well be doing the work but you MUST be there while it does.

I found that it was worth educating the clients that every time they called you out or came to you with a problem they would be charged for the time, at a minimum rate like AU$50.00, even if the "repair" is something as simple as the speakers plugged into the wrong jack and takes you 30 seconds to fix - you still had to (possibly) travel to the client and diagnose the problem. They, in turn, must be made to pay for your expertise.

One final thought - I usually charge a quoted rate (so the client knows exactly what they are up for). Most times I come out in front but occasionally have to take a loss - works well for me.

Hi,
About 1 year ago i bought UPS ( Discovery ), it has three outputs ( 220v - 3.6A ) and the input is 220-240v - 6A max.
Anyway, i have my PC, screen, router and surround system connected to it. AT first, when electricity goes down, the UPS used to give me around 5 mins of electricity which is more than enough to save work and turn off PC, but about 2 months ago it stopped charging for some reason, and now when electricity goes down, the UPS immediately shut down. I disconnected everything from it and let it charge for more than 48 hours but it didn't work.

What would be the problem ?

Thanx.....
 

A:UPS no longer charges

We have about 100 or more APC's here 110v and the batteries normally sound an alarm when they go bad (anywhere from 1 to 2 Years). Our server batteries last considerably longer and of course are more expensive.
Does the Discovery have that ability?
battery replacements run from $30 to 70 depending on size.

Hey everybody, I've been troubleshooting this Toshiba Satellite (A215-S7462) laptop last couple of days and I can't seem to solve the problem. The battery on the system for whatever reason will NOT charge while the system is on and in windows. It charges fine while the computer is off. But while on it says "plugged in, charging" yet the battery only depletes.

It was originally running windows vista, but is now running W7-64bit. I've installed all the latest drivers, bios updates, etc. I've also disassembled and cleaned out the entire laptop, and re-applied thermal paste on the CPU. (I originally thought it was a overheating issue.) I'm not too sure where to go from here so any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

Hi,

I have been running my laptop off the charger for a few months now (the laptop does hold some charge when running off the battery, but only 30 mins tops before the battery is empty - need a new one).

Today I turned the laptop on with the charger plugged in but the laptop wasn't charging and running off the battery. On the original charger, it neither charges (light comes on) when its off or on.

So I bought a new charger but again the laptop doesn't charge when on. When the laptops off with the new charger plugged in the port lights up (I'm assuming its charging) but when I turn the laptop on, the light goes off and the laptop runs off the battery.

Is this because the battery is knackered and needs a new one? Or could this be something else?

Thanks for any help.

A:Laptop charges when off but not when on

Yeah it sounds like you may need a new battery. My brother just had a similar problem with his laptop. It would not charge at all when on or off. They switched out the charger, that didn't work. Then they switched the connector that was in the laptop, that didn't work. Turns out it was the battery, doh!

I ran Windows 7 Reimage, because there were some programs missing parts. After I was finished, I discovered, it had installed Bing and MSN toolbar, which are optional updates that I never installed, this program. How can I remove them, can't find them, they will not let me use google as my homepage.
Jim

A:Windows 7 Reimage installed Bing and MSN Toolbar, Now I can't use google

My first question is...exactly what did you run...I find nothing listed for "Windows 7 Reimage" so it seems that you tried to restore an image from a backup program.
 
As for MSN and Bing...both of those items should be reflected as browser add-ons and (possibly) Programs/Features.

The first release of a themepack for Windows 7 RTM containing wallpapers that were featured as the background images of the Bing search/decision engine proved so popular that Microsoft has put together a second package. Bing's Best 2 is currently available for download from the Windows Personalization Gallery. As it was the case with the first release, Bing?s Best 2 is a theme designed to integrate exclusively with the latest iteration of the Windows client.

All that Windows 7 users need to do is grab either Bing's Best 1 or Bing's Best 2 from the links at the bottom of this article. Once the downloads are complete, the themepack files can be run locally, and will configure the operating system in accordance with the settings and wallpapers included in the release.

Hi

We are planning to use XFIRE and Cairngorm/PureMVc in our project.From the sites we understood that these are open source frameworks.Do we get any issues regarding license or any charges if we use XFIRE for deployment in production environment.

Thanks,
Aparajitha.

A:Xfire License charges

My apologies if I'm off the mark on this, but this is the way I understand it.

Even Open Source products can present licensing issues if you're in a business environment. If the software packages are protected in some fashion, they will almost always contain an End License User Agreement (EULA.) You will likely find the EULA when you install the product. Print and/or read it and see what it says regarding businesses.

If a product does not contain a EULA, the website you obtain the product from should contain the information you are looking for.

If none of the above are true, the issuers of the code are apparently not worried about it and I would use it without issue.

I recently purchased a Latitude e6430u and noticed that the charging percentage never increased above 71%.  I assumed that I needed a new battery so a bought both a new battery and charger, just to make sure I covered all bases.  The new battery never charges past 24% so I re-installed Windows 7 Pro and updated all of the drivers from the Dell web site, very nice driver update system you have, by the way.  The update also include new BIOs, very nice.  None of this had any affect on the problem.  When I first power up the computer, the battery icon on the screen indicates that I am plugged in and charging and the image of the battery shows advancing bars for about 45 seconds and then they freeze.  I'm beginning to suspect a hardware problem.  Any ideas?

Hi everyone.

My laptop is giving me issues. About 3 days ago it started to only charge to 84% while plugged in. So last night I went to sleep and left it plugged in while the laptop was off. I woke up and it is still only charged to 84%.

It's a gateway and it's only 6 months old. The last laptop I had was an Acer and it never did this once in 3 years. Is the battery defective or could this be something else?

Any help is appreciated. thanks

Hey There.
I have a problem with my laptop. It started off working fine but recently I started having trouble.
When I plug in the charger, it charges fine but then after 2 minutes the charging led goes off then on then off then on for 4 seconds, as if im taking off the charger, and putting it back on. Then after those 4 seconds or so are up, it starts charging normally again.. then does it a few mins/seconds later.
What is wrong? can it be a driver issue?
Due to this, it never reaches 100% only 10%
I know for sure its not the ac or battery.

Hi all nbsp My laptop charges battery off when only is laptop is new i've had it for just about a month now There's usually an orange charging light on the side of the laptop that illuminates when the charger is plugged in However recently whenever my laptop is on and i try to charge it the orange light illuminates for a matter of seconds and comes up with the message plugged in but not charging and then the light just turns white and the laptop continually runs as if nothing is plugged in However when the battery only charges when laptop is off laptop is turned off the orange light will iluminate and will nbsp charge to battery only charges when laptop is off The charger is completely fine as it appears to charge the laptop when it is off I have even purchased a new charger and that has made no difference It appears as though it's some type of settings problem but i have checked settings and nothing seems to be different Any help would be appreciated as i'd hate to have to keep switching of my laptop just so that it will charge

I apologize if this question was already asked,but I couldn't find anything with my specific issue. My laptop occasionally charges while on, but for the most part will show X% available(plugged in,not charging). When I put the laptop to sleep however, it charges fully in about a hour and a half(I only know because the orange charge indicator turns blue when charged). I had a problem earlier in the year when the laptop didn't charge at all, to which acer diagnosed as a charger port issue. However, when the laptop was sent in, all they did was change the battery. I went to a local shop that tested out the original chargers voltage, and they gave me the new charger I'm using now.Is there anything I can do about this issue without a warranty?Fee lfree to ask me anything about either charger.

Hey there,My laptop only turns on if the battery is charged in another laptop then put into mine, then while turned on it will continue to charge the battery and work normally.But it will not turn on with just the charger plugged in OR with a flat battery, it will also not charge the battery if it is turned off.Worst of all if the laptop is turned off for more than 5 minutes then the battery instantly goes flat.So I again must charge it in a different laptop to be able to turn mine on.It's not the battery nor the charger as I have tried my friends of each which work perfectly fine in his laptop but I still have the same problems with them.Any ideas?

My girlfriends daughter is going to school in Spain this semester and took her laptop with aol on it with her . She just got a phone line installed and when she went to sign in on aol it said she would incur additional charges? Anybody know what those charges might be . She is afraid of signing in for fear of running up a huge bill. Is there another way she can get online at her apartment using her laptop ? Thanks

A:Windows 8.1 With Bing Clean Install on Dell Inspiron i3531

Windows 8.1 With Bing is only available for computer manufacturers to be used as pre-installed OS on low end budget laptops and notebooks. It is not available to consumers as a stand alone installer.

To reinstall Windows 8.1 With Bing you need to use the recovery media to restore the computer to factory settings. Consult the manual of your computer to see how the recovery is done.

If you have a way of accessing your HDD you can run a few commands to see if the Factory recovery Image is still present on a separate HDD partition

Boot from any windows 8.1 setup media and when on the INSTALL screen
press SHIFT+F10 to bring up a command prompt..

Is the battery original? The knee-jerk here is to blame the "universal" adapter. Have you tried the diagnostics on the battery by tapping esc or F2 as you power up?

When I plug in the charger, the battery shows charging for like 5-6 seconds and then it shows not charging. I again pull out the charger from laptop and plug it again and the same happens. Nothing changes on moving the charger a bit here and there...... Only charges  for 5-6 seconds when I plug it off and on.

Hi

For a few days, my Tecra A5 has begun to beep and shut down (as when the battery gets low) while it was connected to the power supply AC adapter.

I finally realized that when the computer is plugged in, the battery discharges and does not use the power supply to recharge.

On the other hand, if I switch off the computer, the battery starts to recharge.
I replaced the battery a few months ago, so I think it is still OK.

Could the charger be faulty? Seems strange since it can still recharge the battery when the computer is off.

Thanks in advance for your inputs.

A:Tecra A5 - battery charges only when computer is off

> Could the charger be faulty?

Theoretically; yes? but it could be also possible that the power supply electronic on the motherboard is affected? but at first stage the AC adaptor should be checked and notebook should be tested with new, good working AC adaptor.

Hey Guys, I purchased hp au006tx 2 months ago. There has been this issue with the battery. Everytime I put the laptop on charging, the battery goes staright to 99 % in like 40 minutes or less and then its stuck there. I kept it on charge for like straight 3-4 hours, nothing changed . The battery check tool from HP shows status as good but it shows the full charge capacity as 99% . Why ? Should I get my battery replaced by HP. I have it under warranty?  Any help would be appreciated.

I have not been able to find anything to link Open Cloud to this "company".

hi

ive got a brand new battery in an old dell inspiron n4030 lappy, win 7 64bit. It never charges more than 86 pc and runs out of juice at about 26pc [on the task bar] . To try and calibrate it ive run full charge/discharge cycles 4 times. Only a couple of pc better

using power plan called "balanced" and default settings, anyway, the recommended one

currently the pc is set to shut down/sleep at 2 pc but because the battery expires much earlier [around 26pc] it just crashes, which cant be good for the HD. Will change this setting.
any ideas anyone

thanks

Hi Guys, I was just wondering if there is a way around the Tesco answer phone charge.

My wife is about to jump into the 21st Century tech world and buy the iphone 4 from Tesco mobile. There is a charge to retrieve her phone messages. I know with T Mobile you just have to phone yourself to avoid these charges.
Does anyone know if you can do that with Tesco Mobile ?

Thanks
 

A:Tesco answer phone charges

You still get charged with T-mobile whichever way you try to retrieve your messages from your mobile phone
You can phone yourself from a landline & retrieve messages from T-mobile answering service BUT that costs more than the T-mobile charge from the mobile phone ( I am pretty sure T--mobile charge 10p per call to retrieve messages but BT or Virgin charge 15p tp call a mobile PLUS the 9p call set up fee everytime)

I am running One Key Optimizer and have a red dot on the battery level, which I thought meant that my computer needed to be optimized. (It did, to be honest.) However, after I did the Checkup, nothing showed up as wrong, but then when I went into the Battery area, it showed that the battery should be calibrated, which I tried starting. It started, but it only charged my battery up, and not discharged it to recharge it. I have it currently on high performance setting to help drain the battery, and I have it unplugged to try and discharge the battery. I know it has to be plugged in, not allowed to sleep, or not to power down the PC, but if it won't discharge, then what's the sense of a calibration? What is wrong?
