what HP's ETA is on these batteries? I was hoping to order one before I go off to college, or even sooner if possible. I love my 16t, but the battery life is horrendous even on power saver settings, so any improvement (thus the Boston Power batteries)
I have a old hp zv5000 and it seems to randomly shut down, the problem is very peculiar. The battery on the hp cant hold charge for more than 10 minutes but the problem lies in the charger/laptop itself. The charger only seems to be able to charge the battery and the system only seems to runs on battery power, the battery runs out and the system shuts down (without any notice). When the battery is taken out of the system, it fails to start up.
i am guessing somewhere in the mobo :S since the laptop itself cant turn on external power when the battery is disconnected and only seem to run off battery power.
I have a HP Compaq 2230S business laptop, but this question could be put to any HP laptop. The fan is constantly running when the laptop is plugged into the power outlet, but as soon as I pull the plug to run on battery power the fan powers down and stops. I re-plug the laptop back in and the fan kicks up again.
This is not good as I almost burned myself when I picked up the laptop after an hour sitting on the table on battery power. The hard drive is right beside the processor, so the laptop gets really hot.
Vista x64 Ultimate is what I'm using at the moment and my power scheme calls for 1% minimum and 100% maximum CPU on battery power.
When I pull the power cord to switch to battery power while in Windows my lcd goes to black. The only way I get my video back is a hard reset and reboot. Later on I tried this and everything was back to normal. Why is this happening? Is this some weird standby?
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?
When Im watching and HD movie or editing HD video material at some point the playback starts to halt and hiccup. Ive noticed that it happens when the GPU core temps hit 75 to 80. If I then wait a while and it goes down to 72 everything works fine again.
Is my computer downclocking maybe? Can I do anything to make it more stable, I dont mind if the fan works a bit more.
Acer 5253 - Will not power on, battery or on AC power. Have tried all the suggested solutions but none have worked. Is it possible to get maintenace instructions (disassembly, where certain items are located, etc)?
"Hydrocarbon fuel cell? 600 degrees Celsius. Large Hadron Collider? -271 degrees. Microwave drill? 2,000. Your run of the mill Core i7 MacBook Pro can't compete with these extreme temperatures, but that won't keep it from burning your lap. PC Authority recently put the latest edition of Apple's sleek silver classic through a series of torture tests, and found that running Cinebench could cause the CPU temperature to climb over 100 degrees Celsius. The metal shell proved ineffective at dissipating the heat as well as the similarly equipped Fujitsu Lifebook SH760, which finished the same test at 81 degrees, and actually required PC Authority to run the MacBook Pro on its side (see pic above) to complete certain tests. The site thinks that Apple's cooling solution may be inadequate for a Core i7, but these results could be a fluke -- in our experience with the machine, we actually noticed an improvement over the egg-cooking solutions of yesteryear."
i have a compaq presario c500 i have a problem that it wont charge and it wont run without the battery ...i know its not the charger and not the battery at fault as i have two of the same laptops and tried both parts from the other laptop with no sucess . is it more likely to be the motherboard or the actual mains plug on the laptop ....when i plug the adapter into the laptop it shows a charge light on front and the battery icon on screen shows as charging but it still dies the only way to get round it is it to charge it in my girlfriends laptop then put the battery back in mine ...is there any setting in the bios that would change how its charged
I ordered a laptop from Dell on October 1st over the phone. Immediately after I placed the order, I looked it up on dell's website to make sure it had gone through.
The status said "In Production." So then I called the 800 number that gives you an automated message about your order status (yes, I'm anxious), and the recording said "Your order was received today and is currently being processed." So I thought that was weird that the website and phone service were telling me two different things.
So the next day I checked the website and it still said "In Production" and I called the number and it said my order was still "being processed." Also, on the website under Billing Information, it said "Bill to: N/A" and I was concerned that maybe my billing information was wrong.
Recently I noticed that my touch screen sometimes starts to hits randomly at the bottom of the screen. This problem cause some windows became minimize and maximize on its own and when i'm watching video, the video keep pause, play and pause again. I tried to find any crack on the screen but found nothing.
I just bought an Insprion 7520, and upgraded the windows os to ultimate. However after reading few reviews of this os, I wanted to switch back to Home Premium so that it would be like I bought it. However after installing Home Premium, some of the drivers that I downloaded from the Dell Drivers and Downloads website were unable to install. These problems have also lowered the laptops score in the Windows Performance Index. The GRAPHICS score went from 6.6 to 5.6 and RAM socre 7.9 to 7.7.
-Intel Rapid Start Technology : "The system does not meet the requirements" (It did when I bought it. What has changed I cannot understand.)
-Seagate Firmware v 0005DEM1, A05 : Got a FAILED message in the dos screen.
-Dell-Hardware version GS002D, A02 : Got a message saying "Not compatible with x64 systems".
I have the service tag and the express service code if needed.
I recently bought a dell inspiron e1705 on ebay and I put a hard drive in it and installed the operating system and now I need software and I tried using my dell downloads and it says in internet explorer (an add-on for this website failed to run) and it won’t work.
I can't get in contact via web/email to Dell as my service tag doesn't get recognised on the wesbite, and the auto detect doesn't work
I have a Studio 1555 laptop and want to add bluetooth to it
I have found this:
Model numbers 0P560G and 0M960G
Which one I need and whereabouts I need to check inside the laptop to see if I have the slot available? I am capable of doing this sort of stuff as I have built my own PC, just don't normally do anything to laptops (other than install an illuminated keyboard in this)
Will it work if I just add the module and install the driver?
I recently purchased a Dell B120 used in ebay. Laptop worked great on AC adapter, but battery showed 1% on battery indicator and would not work. I ordered a non-dell replacement from a company on ebay. Battery came in and had 94% when installed. Just to check I unplugged AC adapter.
Laptop seems to work properly for the few seconds I checked. I then replaced AC adapter cord and allowed battery to charge overnight. Next morning I powered up laptop and checked battery power.
Laptop showed 100%, so I pulled AC adapter plug. Boom, nothing, no power. I have tried everything to get this battery to work. Bios sees battery and shows no battery when removed.
Bios we upgraded to latest dell upgrade A08. Battery info in bios says battery performing normal. shows 100% but no power .....
I've had a strange people recently plaguing my D630 (purchased June 2008).
The battery states 100%, pull the plug, and within a minute, it goes to about 10%, then the laptop shuts down.
Now, here's the catch - the battery is still good. I've tried the battery out in my other D630 and it works perfect, still holding a charge. I also tried the other laptop's battery in the problem laptop and it did the same thing.
I have a ES1-512 laptop bought that is showing a battery problem. It will run on mains power without problem however if mains power is removed it shuts down immediately. Also in the task bar the battery indicator is showing 74% available (plugged in, not charging).
