HP/Compaq :: Laptop Shuts Off With 18% Battery Left.

Mar 23, 2010

I updated the bios which fixed other issues. I updated the drivers and did all the win7 updates to rule any of that out. When teh laptop gets down to 18% it just powers off instantly. It does not go through a normal shutdown process or hibernate. I can power it back on and it shows 18% battery left. Is the battery going bad? I dont think this machine is barely a year old yet. I have no problems on wall power. Could it be a Win7 power setting? Just surprised win7 would slam the power off like that.

HP/Compaq :: Computer Shutting Off After 20 Mins

Feb 21, 2010

is there something wrong with the f21 bios? my dv5t shuts down after 20 minutes of use after I flashed it in. To top it off, the only reason i installed it was because a hp csr guy said it would increase battery life!

How do i revert back?

Apple :: Put My MBP To Sleep It Had About 30% Battery Left - When Open In Morning Battery Went Down To 13%

May 9, 2010

I just received my MBP 13" yesterday. So far I love it. However, I noticed an issue. Last when I put my MBP to sleep, it had about 30% battery left. However, when I woke up this morning and opened my MBP, the battery went down to 13%.

When I put the laptop to sleep, I had a pdf file open along with itunes (paused). I have never used Mac OS, so maybe I not doing something correct. Also, I noticed when I open the lid (after I put the notebook to sleep) it just goes directly back to the desktop as opposed to on windows it prompts to the login screen when waking it up from sleep mode.

Acer Aspire V5-473P-5602 :: Battery Indicator Wrong - Show Different Values At Different Times

Oct 29, 2014

I have an Acer Aspire V5-473P-5602. It's just over 2 months old. It's been for repair twice, and both times the repair does not solve the original problem.
The issue is this... I will charge the computer to 100%. While using, the battery indicator will show different values at different times. Basically all over the map. Once the indicator gets down to 30% or so , I'm in the "shut down" zone where the computer will shut down because there is actually little or no power left in the battery though its says 30% or 24% or whatver value it may be.
Again this has been to the Acer Repair Shop to be "repaired" twice so far. They changed the Mainboard ( Motherboard I assume) TWICE so far and the problem STILL persists. I can't even get to the "Low or Critical" battery warnings ( currently set at 15% and 5%) because it shuts down before reaching those levels.

Dell Inspiron 1545 :: Low Battery Message With 99% Charge Left

Sep 5, 2012

I've been using a Dell inspiron 1545 from about 3 years now and exactly after 2 years of my buy, the battery failed and it started showing me to replace the battery and always notified me about contacting dell for a new battery.

I didn't take this of much concern so i just ignored the message and kept on using my battery with my adapter plugged in. After 4-5 months of such usage, My battery completely failed and doesn't even offer me even a minute of backup, when i remove the power socket. Then i realized the importance of a new battery and then bought a new battery from Dell.

Its the same battery with the same specs and also the same family type. After i removed my defected battery, I replaced my new bought Dell battery and realized that my battery is working fine. its charging well but at some time, it says "Plugged in, But not charging" Which is rare for any new battery, which is bought brand new.

This is how it looks now after i remove the AC adapter plug and when i depend on the battery backup. it is providing me a backup, but I see a yellow exclamatory mark beside it. Which I think should not be present. it also says "Low battery" when there's already 99% of battery left!

I've also followed some online steps

1) updated by BIOS to the latest  
2) Followed some other steps like uninstalling the battery ACI in the device manager and etc...

I'm using a PA-12 family adapter, which is also a replaced one.

Dell XPS 15 :: Touchpad Left Button Only Work If Pressed 2 To 3 Times And Battery Failure Message

Mar 23, 2013

Using an XPS15. My left touchpad button has some problems. It seems to only work if it's pressed 2-3 times, or if you push it down hard...

Could this be related to any settings / firmware? - I think it's more likely that's it's probably failing and needs to be replaced?

I have a permanent battery failure message...

Dell :: GPU Hits 95C After 2 Mins W/ Rthdribl (M1330)

Nov 6, 2008

after a long ordeal that included, crashes and vertical lines, faulty nvidia card, technician coming home, heat sink being stucked, endless chats with Dell representatives, laptop going to the depot, getting motherboard and heat sink replaced, etc... I just got my laptop back yesterday.

After experiencing certain familiar symptons (again!), I decided to run Rthdribl... After just 2 mins, the GPU temp (measured with CPUID Hardware Monitor) rose to 95C very fast! I got scared and stopped it there (so who knows if it could get even higher).

I guess this is not normal, and that I may have gotten another faulty video card, right?

Sony :: Wwan Auto Drops After Few Mins

May 29, 2010

I downloaded and installed the GlobeTrotter Connect in order to use 3g/HSPA on my z11wn.

I could make may lap connect to internet via the inserted sim. However, the connection only last for few mins, then drops. The only way to make it works again is turn off wwan, turn on and restart GlobeTrotter Connect, sometimes I need to restart lap aswel.
this is very annoyed, because I can use mobile internet for only few mins, then must shut down and reset the WWAN adapter.

HP/Compaq :: HP Dv5t Left Palm Rest

Jan 16, 2009

I know the HP dv5t's hard drive is on the left side , but is not located near the palm rest...instead it's near the battery compartment, just below it.

So what is under the left palm rest? Is it the GPU? CPU? It's pretty hot when in "High Performance" mode, but slightly warm when in "Power Saver" mode.

Dell :: XPS M1730 Performance Drops After 20 Mins Of Gaming

Mar 30, 2009

I have a M1730 with 8700gt sli GPU's. My problem is that, if i turn on the notebook and start playing a newish game,

it will run great for 20 mins or so, then its performance will drop dramatically, to the point of not being able to play due to framerate drop.

My instincts tell me that it is a heat problem, beacuse if i turn it off and leave it for a bit, i can turn it back on and play fine again.

HP/Compaq :: (DV7T-1285DX) Subwoofer = Left Speaker

Feb 19, 2009

I just recently picked up my new DV7, wiped the drive and re-installed Vista Ultimate x64. The machine itself runs great, but after installing all the drivers and the most recent bios, I hit a strange snag- I have my right channel speaker, works fine. But my left channel isn't coming out the left speaker, but out through the subwoofer. I've tried uninstalling the IDT codec and letting Vista use it's own driver, same deal. Re-installed IDT, same deal. I get no sound at all through the left speaker, and Vista only recognizes me as having 2 speakers.

HP/Compaq :: Grinding Sound Coming From Top Left Vents

Feb 10, 2010

So a few days ago, my computer just all of a sudden began making a
strange "grinding/crunching" sound which seems to be coming from the top left side of the computer. The sound is very clear especially from the back left corner vent. The noise seems to come and go but still has me very worried. I've read this noise may indicate a dieing hard drive, however tests came by negative and also the hard drive for this notebook is in the middle, not toward the top left. Anyway, I recorded the sound twice and was wondering if you could take a look and tell me what you guys think (you might wanna turn your volume up). I have an HP Dv7t

HP/Compaq :: HP DV7T Quad: Audio Is Louder From Right Speaker Then Left Speaker

Mar 1, 2010

The right speaker in my notebook is louder then the left one is. The only way to compensate for the problem is to lower the "balance" in the sound properties for the right speaker (I have it all the way down to 70 if you can believe that!) Now my audio sounds even between the left and right speaker. I think it's ashame that seems to be the only fix for the problem. Not sure if this is a driver issue or a hardware issue.

NVidia installs audio drivers to the computer when installing the video drivers (which I still don't understand why...I thought NVidia was a graphics company?) Then I install the IDT drivers/software afterwards. HP has verified that this is correct so everything on my end is up to date...minus of course offical drivers for the 320M video card that everyone is still waiting on!

HP 250 G1 :: BIOS Does Not Show HDD At All

Dec 8, 2014

I have a cliehnt with an HP 250 G1 Laptop.The Hard Drive has died, it is making a few repatative beeping noises then failing.  The Laptop became unresponsive a few times while she was using it, similar to caching error, then bluescreened and failed to work again.  Boot Message is along the lines of Insert Boot Media / Hard Drive not found.  BIOS does not show an HDD at all.
The laptop was purchased on the 5th of Jan 2014 but the online warranty check states that the warranty has expired.  How do I get this laptop back to HP for repair as the website seems not to offer this as an option and there is no contact telephone number or email address.The lady who owns this Laptop, Elaine is using it for an Adult Learning Course in basic computer literacy.

Dell :: M90 Show The Windows Sign On Bootup And Go Black After That

Mar 9, 2009

I have an M90 and it was good for the first two years and about 7 months ago it started to heat even when I wasn't playing games.

A lot of times it would shut off by itself. I now realize that it might be the dust bunnies that needed cleaning.

Thank you dell for pointing that out(sarcasm).... Now my lappy will only show the windows sign on bootup and go black after that.

Is my motherboard out also or just my graphics card? I'm hoping that I can put in a 7900gs after seeing the prices for a fx2500m .....
