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.

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 :: Laptop Shuts Down While Playing Games

May 3, 2009

I have an Aspire 1694wlmi with a 2GHz Pentium M, a Mobility Radeon x700 (256mb) and 1GB of ram. I run Win XP with SP3. I didn't do anything to the comp apart from removing its crappy built-in wlan adapter.

The issue is this: whenever I play any game (even as undemanding as UT99) the laptop just shuts down without warning. This even happens playing 8ballclub's billiards sim in window mode for instance.

The whole thing started happening occasionally a long time ago (with Rome Total War at first). Right now, it happens always and very very soon after starting the game (i.e. less than a minute).

I have noticed that the CPU usage jumps to 100% as soon as I launch the game and stays there until shutdown (but this is supposed to be normal, yes?). Also, I tried stopping all non-essential processes (of which there weren't that many to begin with) and the CPU usage is around 0-4% when idle.

I have also opened the lid and look for dust - none there (neither around the processor nor around the graphics adapter)

I tried updating the ATI drivers, but since the Radeon is included in all Acers, it won't let you update the drivers - and Acer doesn't provide updates either. I have installed the Catalyst Control Center...

People have associated such problems with viruses. I use Avast which finds no viruses (I'm installing Kaspersky next).

Dell Inspiron 1564 :: Shuts Down When Battery Has 40%

Dec 7, 2014

Recently laptop shuts down unexpectedly even when battery shows 40%. When it restarts with mains on, battery shows 0% power. When I check the battery health, it shows "Your Battery is able to charge normally. However, you may begin to notice reduced operating time because your long-term battery life is decreasing". I know my  battery possibly needs to be replaced, but don't understand why battery indicating incorrectly?

HP DV7-6c90us Lockups :: Laptop Shuts Down Randomly While Gaming

Aug 9, 2014

So recently my laptop started randomly shutting off while I was gaming, I assumed it was the graphics card so I tried to use the intel hd graphics and disable the amd hd graphics to see if that would solve the issue, however it still happened. One thing I noticed is that now when I disable that graphics card the resolution is odd and the letters won't be as clear, I'm guessing this means it may be a motherboard issue.I moved on to thinking it was overheating due a fan problem, I bought a new thermal module for it and the same thing still happens.

I did the reset procedure (removed the battery and ac, pressed the power button for 60secs) and it still happened. I tried with a new battery and charger, same still happens.Lately it doesn't happen just while gaming, it will randomly shut down and once it does, sometimes it will shut down again and again before it even boots up, after a while it may boot up or may shut down again.It's really random and I cannot find a pattern....

Dell XPS L501X :: Laptop Shuts Off Completely Without Warning

Dec 12, 2013

My XPS L501X laptop shuts off completely and without warning. What happens is the cursor freezes. The computer does not respond to anything. After about 15 to 60 seconds, the screen goes black and it completely powers down in an instant. It does not restart on its own.

After it shuts down I can re-boot, but sometimes is shuts off during re-boot. Other times it runs for 5 minutes or so. Usually it acts this way for a day or two, then it's "OK" for a week or so before it starts acting up again.

I have run Dell diagnostics and found no problems. I have taken it to the local computer shop. They ran diagnostics and found nothing wrong and were not able to get it to shut down. Yet when I brought it home, it shut down on me within the first hour of use. It seems to run longer in safe mode, but I did have it shut off unexpectedly today while it was in safe mode.

I suspected there might be a problem with my video card as it seemed to be worse when I had an external monitor hooked up to it. Then I ran it for several weeks without the external monitor and it seemed to be OK. Until today when it started shutting down again with no external monitor attached.

This has been an excellent computer until this started happening about 6 months ago. I"m on the verge of giving up and buying a desktop (another laptop like this one is just too expensive). My laptop is out of warranty.

Dell :: Inspiron 9400 Battery Good But Shuts Down

Inspiron 9400 battery good but shuts down

Worked fine on AC or battery until I installed a new Dell battery a few months ago.

Subsequently, works only about two minutes on battery, then completely shuts down without warning and can't be re-started until re-connected to AC power. Adjusting Power Schemes "Running on batteries" in Power Options Properties hasn't helped.

Works OK on AC.

HP Envy 15t-j100 Lockups :: Laptop Shuts Down While In Sleep Mode?

Jul 8, 2014

I have recently purchased an HP ENVY 15t-j100 Quad Edition CTO Notebook Windows 7 Professional (PC Product #: E1P05AV). I'll usually close the lid to put it into sleep mode when I have to do something else. But when I open it back up, it has the "Start windows normally or safe mode" sreen. I've noticed that this only happens after a certain amount of time of being in sleep mode. If I wake it up prior to that, it works just fine. I hope that this can be resolved since this is a brand new laptop.

HP Pavilion G6-2320er OS/Software :: Laptop Shuts Down Due To Incorrect Operation Of Fan

Oct 15, 2014

How to solve the problem with a laptop. I have HP Pavilion g6-2320er (A6) and on it the operating system Windows 8. For a year this laptop works well (from date of purchase passed just over a year). Warranty expired in August 2014. (At the moment the guarantee is not performed). The problem is that the laptop began to overheat. It just shuts down. I began to raise it to ventilation air passes better.

But now it began to frequently shut down and even after the easy way out, when turned on, gives me a strange message: "The system has detected that a cooling fan is not operating correctly ... Continued operation is not recommended and may cause unpredictable behavior that could result in random shutdown possible system damage. The system will shutdown in 15 seconds. To prevent shutdown and continue operation ... "Of course, I understand the general meaning. But what is the reason for such work "fan" and what to do to more of this happening?

HP ProBook 4540s :: Windows 8.1 - When Unplugged Laptop Suddenly Shuts Down

Aug 28, 2014

I have a 1 year old HP Probook 4540s that recently has the following problem.
 
When unplugged the laptop suddenly shuts down even tough the battery shows 29% still remaining.
 
I receive no notification from Windows or anything, it just shut downs like when the battery reaches 0%.
 
Then in order to start it again, I need to plug it in.
 
I previously didn't have any battery problems and running the HP Assistant informs me that the battery is ok and it doesn't need replacements. Basically the laptop is dead at 28%-29% battery life.

Dell :: XPS 1530 Shuts Off When 'playing' Game On Battery Power

Jan 18, 2009

I say 'playing' because I never actually get there. Say, Im on the train, and I'll want to play something.. Assassins Creed. I load it up, loading screen is fine, the little video opening is fine, as soon as it comes to actually rendering the graphics it jsut turns itself off. I plug it in at home and it runs beautifully, but as soon as I unplug that power cable, the whole thing just turns off.

It reports a windows error after this, but there is nothing in the error log telling me what shut it down. I KNOW this isn't overheating because I can play it fine on power and although it gets hot when playing gfx intense games it has never turned itself offdue to that.

The games I can play on battery are WoW and Cimcity 4 and audiosurf (although that lags alot on battery :) xD

The games I cannot are Assassins Creed and Devil may Cry 4.

Is this a power issue?

I have tried on multiple power settings and it still likes to turn off when I want to play these games. It may be a GPU power issue?

HP Pavilion N229tx :: Grinding Noise Every 3 Sec At Left Side Of Laptop

I just bought an HP touchsmart pavilion N229tx last week and I noticed now that it started creating grinding noises every 3 seconds whenever my laptop is on and running. The noise is coming from near the vent where the air is supposed to come out.
 
Also when I bought the laptop and opened it the first time I keep having the fan error upon startup saying that it had found that a fan is not operational I think it is error 90B. this now happens everytime I turn on the laptop.

HP/Compaq :: Fan Won't Turn On When Laptop Is On Battery Power

Oct 19, 2009

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.

Did somebody just cobble something up here so it would at least still power on, giving some hope of fixing it? Does anybody here think it's fixable if I replaced that chip? Is it a power mosfet? Sorry no pics of the reverse side as I haven't "progressed" to that point yet.

HP/Compaq :: DV6000- Lights Turn On For 2 Seconds, And It Shuts Right Off

Nov 11, 2009

I have a HP DV6000 Laptop. Im aware of the problems these models have. But this one I have not yet heard of. When I attempt to power it on, the lights turn on for 2 seconds, and it shuts right off. Its not like the Video card issue everyone speaks of. I have extensive technical background, and I have tried taking everything out, and trying each part one by one. I have tried swapping the power button ribbons, I have tried removing the bios battery. I guess im wondering if anyone else has ever been able to figure out whats going wrong with this setup? copuld it be a lack of contact between heat sync and CPU? please give me whatever input you can. I would like to not have to spring for a new Mobo. I can solder, and I am thinking of trying to heat the soldering points with a heat gun maybe. I dont know if thats the problem tho. and also, when the AC adaptor is plugged in, the blue LED surrounding it is on.

I also tried all this (of course)

1. Remove battery.
2. Remove AC power.
3. Remove and reseat your RAM modules.
4. Replace your RAM modules.
5. Hold down your power button for 1 minute.
6. Replace your AC power (not battery) and turn on
remove the small bios cmos battery for 15min and then put it back in

Dell :: E1705: Battery No Longer Powers My Laptop (NOT Bad Battery)

The battery itself is only 1 month old and has been performing flawlessly. I just thought it was something random so I plugged the machine in and it started up.

I didn't think anything else of it till today when I went to move my laptop, removed the power cord, and the laptop turned off. I checked the physical battery meter which still reads 3 of 5 lights .....

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.

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!
