HP/Compaq :: 8710p- Power Plug

Oct 12, 2009

It seems that the the end of the power plug (the center pin) is broken.

I have a HP 8710p, and this AC adapter ---> [url]

What I'm asking for is a picture, or a rough explanation of how LONG is the gold'ish connector (the center pin) inside that plug.

I'm asking because I want to find out whether it's the motherboard power connector that's broken or if the center pin inside the DC power plug somehow broke and doesn't provide the power..

Dell :: 9300 No Boot After Power Plug Swap

May 14, 2009

It is now charging and all but when I try and boot all that happens is the the Caps Lock, Num Lock, and Scroll Lock lights turn on for about a second or 2 then they turn off. Also the "charging" light extinguishes when the others light. I get no beeps, fans or anything.

Now my buddy, said that he did a similar replacement on his daughters laptop and that "the board needed reprogrammed afterwords"?? I'm not sure what he means by this .....

Lenovo X Series ThinkPad :: X200 Will Not Operate Without Power Supply Plug In

Sep 3, 2014

My X200 (three or four years old) has a new battery (few months only) and has never had any power issue. Suddenly since last week it will not operate without the power supply plug in.  Battery is showing 100% and condition excellent, but the second I remove/unpower the power supply plug, the system crashes. On restart with power supply attached, the battery indicator shows 1%!  It then gradually creeps up to 4% and after maybe 5 mins it leaps back up to 100%.

Dell Latitude E7440 :: When Plug In Power Cord Into Computer / Screen Freezes On

Apr 17, 2014

I've had my laptop for a little bit under 2 months, so these are the things I have noticed. 

Issue number 1: When you plug in the power cord into the computer, the screen freezes on what it is currently on. I noticed this issue because occasionally when I plug in my power cord, and try to use the mousepad to select something, the mouse pointer is gone! I have to unplug-replug the power cable to get the mouse pointer to show again. It seems to have to do with the screen

Issue number 2: when I carry my E7440 around in my bad, or have it shut for long periods of time >3 hours (I just simply close the lid), the computer will SHUT DOWN. The thing will shut down completly, even though I simply closed the lid! At first I thought it was just going into hibernate, so I disabled hibernate in my power settings. But nope, even when the computer is asleep, it will occasionally shut it self down for no reason at all.

Just now, I closed the lid on my laptop, and put in in my bag, then walked to my office about 10 minutes away. When I sat down at my desk and opened my laptop, to my surprise, it had shut down by itself! All of my open windows, browsers, and applications were closed, and upon opening chrome and microsoft word, I was greeted by "your browser did not shut down correctly" and "microsoft word has recovered files". This points to the conclusion that it was not hibernates fault, but instead a issue with the laptop itself shutting down when it is put in sleep. This issue needs to be rectified immediately if it is a widespread issue.  

Issue number three: When the computer comes back from hibernate or sleep, the computer is very very sluggish, even when plugged in. It is sluggish forever, OR until the power plan is set from whatever it is to "high performance". upon switching to the previous powerplan from high performance, the swiftness of the system is restored. This indicates to me that the system is throttling itself after it resumes from hibernation, why. This needs to be fixed; many people (myself included) just thought that the system itself was slow and underpowered, not realizing that it was just throttling itself when it emerged from sleep or hibernate.

HP 8710p Recovery :: Failed BIOS Update - Restarts In Endless LOOP

Mar 13, 2013

I updated my friends system to the f.20 bios - and it now comes up that the bios update did not succeed, and then it restarts.
 
This is an endless loop - which never lets me boot into windows - so I cannot go back to a previous version of the BIOS.
 
I have been reading around the forums and discovered a method to try an emergency recovery by getting the rompaq bios and holding down the Windows Key + B when I turn on the system.
 
Just bought an external USB Floppy drive to try this emergency recovery. I tried the USB - but it wouldn't work. I am getting different results here - but not what I want.
 
With the USB Floppy plugged in: When I hold down Win+B - the caps light flashes  for a lot longer now, it looks like it initializes the floppy drive (green light comes on for just a moment) - but then nothing - just flashing caps lock for a bit and then finally a restart again into the doom loop. It never appears to begin to read the floppy disk or search for a bios file.
 
What am I doing wrong? What can I try? Does the disk need to be leabeled a certain way? Does my BIOS file need to be renamed?

HP/Compaq :: HP Nx7400 - Whenever I Plug The AC Adapter To My Laptop Whole Performance Is Very Slow

Apr 1, 2009

I have an HP Compaq nx7400. I've had it for over 3 years now. I've never changed its battery ever since I bought it.

Specs: [url]

Over the past few weeks, I've been having an unusual problem. Whenever I plug the AC adapter to my laptop, the whole laptop performance - from the second I switch it on - is very slow. The moment I pull the AC adapter from the laptop, it instantly operates at a normal and fast speed again!

I figured that it must have been a problem with the AC adapter (it's had its fair share of use - being swung around and dragged to lectures...). So I ordered another one off Ebay. Today, I got the new adapter and when I plugged it in, the laptop only went on AC power. It worked fine - fast as normal. However, it was not charging - just on AC power. I am starting to question if the adapter was really as "genuine" like it was advertised on eBay. But anyway... after about 4 hours with the new adapter on AC power, it stopped recognizing the battery altogether and alerted me with a Critical Battery sign. Of course, a few minutes later, it went dead on me - the laptop switched off. It was as if I removed the AC adapter myself, only I hadn't. Now, I am trying to plug it in again (the new one), to see if it will be able to power up again and it just won't respond at all.

On the other hand, when I put the old AC adapter, the laptop switches on but doesn't charge. Again, it is extremely slow with the adapter on, and fast when I pull the wire out. Only for a minute or so until it dies on me again...

Apple :: 13" Only Has 1 Headphone Plug

Jun 10, 2009

i was looking at the pictures and i saw that insted of a headphone and a mic plug it only has 1, does that mean it works as both and the apple 3g headset will work perfectly for it?

Also I never had a mac b4 but the 13" macbook pro is really tempting, I always heard stuff about macs like their bad for gaming, works bad with adobe flash, and not alot of software out there for it. Any of that true?

Dell :: To Repeatedly Plug Laptop In Before Battery Is Low

Dec 24, 2008

Just got my first laptop, and my wife likes using it on battery in her favorite chair whereas I prefer to sit it on the coffee table plugged into the outlet. So we end up charging it up when I use it, and only draining it to between 90 and 50% or so when she uses it. Is this okay to do, should I fully drain it once a month or so, am I being too paranoid about taking care of it?

HP 15 R101na :: Possible To Plug USB 2.0 Peripheral Devices Into USB 3.0 Ports?

Oct 14, 2014

As far as I can see the HP 15-r101na and 15-r125na laptops are exactly the same apart from the colour. Are they the same or have I missed something?

Also is it possible to plug USB 2.0 peripheral devices into USB 3.0 ports? Stupid question maybe but I've never owned a computer with a USB 3.0 port.

Finally, will the following HP printers work on Windows 8.1: Deskjet D1460, Deskjet D1660, Photosmart Plus B209a.

Apple :: Safari Flash Plug-In Is Killing My Battery

May 14, 2010

When I'm watching flash video in Safari my battery life drops to 2-3 hours ... When I'm watching the same content in Firefox I'm good for another 5-6.

What is going on here and would Chrome resolve these issues? Yes I know I could try out Chrome for myself but I alone am not a good enough sample size for the question I'm asking.

At any rate, why does Firefox handle flash much better than Safari on OS X?

Dell :: ESata Plug Differences: E6500 Vs. E6400 Vs. E4300

Mar 5, 2010

I wanted to share with the forum some strange, yet interesting findings that I've come up with in the last week or so.

First, some background. I am the IT manager/senior admin for my company. I do all of the purchasing and high end tech stuff, so I get to play with a fair amount of hardware and equipment before deploying it to the company.

For the last year or so, I've owned an E4300 as my work laptop, and have been purchasing E6400's to deploy to our company. Some of our consultants have dual internal hard drives using the Newmodeus optical bay caddy, and use an esata/usb combo port to power their optical devices when they need. We also utilize the Coolmax esata/usb enclosures for external drives. All of these devices work great on our older E6400's and my E4300.

Recently, I made another order of some E6400's and 2 E6500's as a trial. No matter what I do, the Newmodeus cables (I have a hard drive one as well) will NOT work with the E6500 and 1 of our new E6400s. Occasionally, by wiggling the cable in the plug and pushing hard, I can get a device to be detected for a few seconds. I decided to have Dell come out and replace the motherboard in 1 to see if I got a defective board.

Well, that didn't help at all, so I dug a little deeper. I borrowed a colleagues Coolmax enclosure, and plugged that in. To my amazement, it worked fine. I compared the esata cables....and the Coolmax cable is ~1-2mm longer than the Newmodeus cables.

The port depth on some of these machines must be a little deeper than others, not allowing the cable to fully seat and get a good connection. I have 2 E6500's and 1 E6400 with this issue.

My next plan of attack is to use a small saw to cut a little of the plastic off the Newmodeus cables to see if I can get them to seat a little deeper. I will report back my findings. I never thought something so simple would be such a PITA.

Dell Inspiron 1525 :: Battery Will Not Charge With Plug Connected

Oct 5, 2010

Inspiron 1525 - Battery will not charge with plug connected.  Upgraded to current version Bios with no change in error.. Upgraded from 65W to 90W adaptor with no change in error.  Swapped known good battery that had 55% power left and it would not re-charge.  Put "suspect" battery that had 0% charged into another machine and it is now charging.  My laptop will work on cord power and will work on battery as long as I charge it elsewhere.  I suspect that something is wrong with the laptop power interface and it is not allowing the power to transfer to the battery charging function.  Is this a software issue (I thought the BIOS upgrade might fix this) or a hardware failure.  If it is a hardware failure, can I fix it?
