HP/Compaq :: Nc8430 Battery Stuck At A Certain Percentage

Dec 13, 2009

Basically I'm having some issues with my laptop battery, which seems to be stuck at a particular percentage. By this I mean that when its plugged in the indicator says:

However, when I unplug the mains the laptop turns off immediately, giving the impression that there is no charge at all.

HP/Compaq :: Dv5t Battery Stuck At 0%

Apr 6, 2010

My battery will not charge even though I just got it about 2-3 months ago from HP while my laptop was still under warranty. When I hover over the battery status it tells me 0% available (plugged in, charging) but no matter what I do it won't charge. I've tried charging this battery on my other dv5t with a different AC adapter, but the same thing is happening. Are there any tricks or anything that I can do? This is a new battery and for it to die after 2-3 months just doesn't make sense. HP battery check tells me the battery health is Good.

HP/Compaq :: HP Nc8430 Replacement

Jan 26, 2010

I purchased an HP nc8430 in 2006, and its been brilliant.

Its getting a bit long in the tooth and I am now after a replacement.

I do some moderate gaming so a dedicated video card is a must.

At present, I am looking at the Dell Studio 15/16 models as they seem to offer good bang for the buck. However I have been so happy with my HP Notebook that I would like to see what HP have to offer.

I have tried the HP UK website, however I totally hate the layout of it, and am totally confused with the myriad of options and model ranges. I cant seem to filter out what I want.

What I am looking for is a 15" (approx) laptop with a dedicated video card.

HP/Compaq :: Nc8430, Gpu Problems, Downclocking

Mar 20, 2010

Lately (last two weeks) my gpu has been dowclocking itself, that wouldnt be problem if it wasnt happening ingames (wow, wc3, hl2), even with powerplay off gpu still downcloacks itself to 392/250 from 425/380 and funny thing is, gpu alone swaps between those modes arounde once per minute. also when i alt+tab gpu clocks itself back to 425/380 (all this is happening while ingame)

now that isnt problem in wc3, but in hl2 and wow couses low fps (3-4 )instead of regular 40+ making games unplayable

i am using windows 7 x64, with all the leatest updates, didnt test if this happens on xp but willing to try, problem is i lost my recovery cd-s :S

Week b4 this started to happen i used mobility driver moder and instaled catalyst 9.3, noticed significal fps boost in wow and hl-2, even tryed fresh win instal with vista64 drivers for gpu from hp page (very old drivers) still it didnt solve my problem, mbo has latest bios availible from hp.

Some help would be awsome as i'm rly out of options and what to do, and rly dont feel like reinstaling windows once again ...

could i somehow disable powerplay or owerride it with ati tray tools? problem is i cant run any 3d aplication if att is on they just dont wanna start.

HP Compaq Nc8430 :: Power-On Password

Sep 20, 2014

The exact message is Power-On Password and a symbol of a key.
I am trying to clear this Power-On Password message on a HP Compaq nc8430.  Searching though this forum and on the Internet, everyone mentions I should remove the laptop battery and the internal battery to clear this password.  I have do so and left the battery out overnight and the password is still there.
I have found another mention of a IC or similar that is used on laptops to be more secure.  I have also found mention that some laptops can be reset by a "jumper" or by touching points on a motherboard.

HP/Compaq :: HP Nc8430 (Resuming From Standby-Blank Screen)

Oct 2, 2009

I have Windows 7 RTM running on my nc8430 laptop. It has been working great. The only issue is a standby problem. If I put the computer to sleep via the FN-f3 combo it goes to sleep like it should and wakes up like it should. My power profile is set to put the computer to sleep after 10min of inactivity. If after 10min I let the computer go to sleep on its own, upon resuming it from standby I get a black screen. The computer is on and everything is working with sound, just no screen.

I am assuming it is a possible BIOS problem or video driver problem. I have the most recent of each and have tried different video driver versions but no fix.

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: P500 Battery Shows Charging But Stuck At 40%

Feb 18, 2014

My p500 shows that it is at 40% and that it IS charging (most of the other stops states that it isn't charging).  It could be that windows thinks the battery is charging, but it obviously isnt because when I pull the power plug, the laptop immediatley shuts off.  Obviously the battery doesn't have a charge.
I got the latest version of the lenovo energy manager, but that didn't do anything.  Also, I don't recall the enery manager being there.  I am almost certain that it was not there prior to windows 8.1 upgrade.
Device Manager shows all of the hardware with no missing drivers/unknown hardware.
I have been running the battery conditioner which is suppose to run the battery down and then charge it back up. That has been going on for a few hours and it is still at 40%, where it has been stuck from the start.

Lenovo B / G Series :: G570 Battery Not Charging - Stuck At 90% But Has No Charge At All

Jun 26, 2014

My Lenovo G570 battery is stuck at 90%. It says plugged in, not charging. It just happened over night. Next day battery refuse to work.
In windows it says battery 90% and is not charging but battery has no charge at all. When I disconnet the A/C power laptop just shutdown immediately. As soon as I unplug the power laptop just shutdown as there is no charge in the battery.
I did reinstalled the Power management and also updated it. I all unplugged reboot in OS, restart, put battery back and boot into the OS back. Nothing seems to work.

I just installed Lenovo Energy Management in windows 8 before I was trying in windows 7. In the battery tab there are two options
Maximum battery Life Optimized battery Health. It is selected to "Optimized battery Health" and won't change regardless of power plan. I click on  "Maximum battery Life" and when I open the app again it reset it to "Optimized battery Health".

Lenovo Solution Center say that battery life is GOOD. "Your battery is in good condition".

Dec 2, 2013

I have a problem with my Lenovo ThinkPad X300 computer. The battery charging stuck at 99% (remaining capacity about 69% and 300 cycles). The Power Manager displays, the battery is at 100% but "status" periodically changes - both Power Manager and Windows battery indicator - between "No activity" and "Charging".

Every time stuck at the same "Remaining capacity". As i noticed during battery user windows and the Power Manager displays different information about the remaining battery level and time.

Acer :: Aspire 1640z Motherboard, System Stuck Need To Replug The Battery

May 3, 2009

i have an acer aspire 1642nlci laptop for about over 2 years now... recently the battery (simplo 4-cell) went nuts, and i disassembled it to see if i could do something about it ( the issue was, whenever i'd boot up my operating system i.e XP, the system would stuck, until i remove and then replug the battery in to the laptop)... well i did no repairing, just put the cells out and then back to the casing, inserted the battery into the lappy, and the issue went all by itself... however, 2,3 days later, the battery stopped charging and agonized by the situation already, and while i had my battery(without the casing) inserted into the laptop, i shorted the i/o pins of the battery to each others with a metal... and then the real issue began... my laptop is cursed, it won't start anymore past the initial 'acer' screen... sometimes the lcd won't light up even... pressing f2 helps nothing, keyboard doesn't work... and if you let it stay on for a while, the power indicator leds *both the supply and battery status ones* start to go dim and dimmer... i think i have fried the mother board's power supply area...

Dell XPS M1330 :: Battery Cannot Provide Sufficient Power And Stuck Key Detected

Mar 31, 2013

I bought my laptop Dell XPS M1330 in September 2009... I have not had problems with this until now.  Three days ago I turned on my laptop in order to read a pdf file , but I noticed the my file went constantly down and therefore, I was not able to read it... It seemed like the  "arrow pointed down key" was permanently pushed down! So I reboot my lap but I had the same problem. The next day, again, I turned on my lap and at that time the cursor was moving constantly to the left like the "arrow pointed left key" was pushed down!

I tried with Dell diagnostics and this showed me the next errors:

-ERROR CODE 3600:0853 PRIMARY_BATTERY_BAY The battery can not provide sufficient power.
-ERROR CODE 2C00:0423 KEYBOARD-Stuck key detected

When I was testing the keys (of the keyboard) this showed me:

Expected: e048  Read: e050....Expected: (something)  Read e050.... And so on

Should I have to replace my battery and my keyboard???

HP/Compaq :: NEW Dv7-1202TX 'stuck Key'

Mar 14, 2009

I just got my brand new dv7 out of the box, booted her up, went through the setup and did first reboot... on boot it just sits at a black screen beeping?!? If I go into bios first and then exit and cont booting it goes to windows, but then it acts as if its got a stuck key? at the password prompt the whole form box is full of characters already... so i disabled the password prompt so it would go straight to windows, reboot, into bios, back out, past password prompt, into windows and it then makes the 'ding' noise of a incorrectly pressed key, does this for about 30 secs then stops.

I was convinced to go HP even tho my gut was telling me different!

HP/Compaq :: Remote Is Stuck- Dv4t

Apr 6, 2009

My hp.com customized dv4t arrived this morning and I have already managed to create a problem. I attempted to stick the media center remote into the eSata(or w.e) slot and I managed to push it in all the way, but now it is stuck. This isn't a problem as I probably will never use the remote, but it will be a pet peeve for a long time. Is there anyway to remove it?

HP/Compaq :: SD Card Stuck In Envy 15

May 22, 2010

I think the SD card eject spring in my envy 15 has failed-- the stupid card won't pop out, can't be pushed in at all, and doesn't stick out enough to grab with anything. What the heck do you do if this happens? Is there a place to stick a paper clip to manually eject it like old CD-ROM drives? Am I completely hosed and in need of warranty service just to get a memory card out?

HP/Compaq :: Old DV9207US Video Resolution Stuck At 1024 X 768

Mar 20, 2010

I have a three year old DV 9207us. Has GeForce Go 7600 video card.

I had to do a clean install of Windows Vista Home 32 bit. I installed service pack sp42635 for the nvidia driver. The highest resolution I can get is 1024 X 768. it was higher before the operating system re-install. I have uninstalled the Nvidia drivers back to the generic VGA drivers and then reinstalled the Nvidia drivers. Still max resolution is 1024 x 768 under display settings.

What am I missing to get the resolution to 1440 x 990?
