Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet

Charging of laptop while shut down may cause the corruption of operating system. While shut down battery level will store in the memory and in the shut down mode, if you are charging, it will store in another memory location. After that if you are switch on the system, it will compare both values. If both are not equal, it may be corrupt the operating system. I had affected by this. It wont happen in all times ..Once happened for me after that for knowing purpose i did the same for three more times.. But not the same result. Better to save laptop life, please dint charge while shut down

see this instruction and proceed according. God bless you

To partially clear computer RAM memory, close some programs that are currently running. In Windows, right-click on any program in the task bar and choose the "Close" option. That will free up the memory that was used by the program. Even if you close every program running on the task bar, a big chunk of memory is taken up by the operating system. The RAM used by the operating system cannot be cleared without shutting down the system.


  • 2 To clear computer RAM memory totally, you have to shut down the system. In Windows, click on the Start Menu and click the "Shut Down" option. Unix and Linux have similar options. When this process is complete, all RAM will be cleared.

    If you are somewhat impatient, turn off the computer by pressing the power button on the computer. This is slightly quicker than the previous step.

    If you are very impatient, unplug the power cord of the computer. If it is a laptop, disconnect the battery as well. The computer's RAM memory will be cleared immediately upon the power source being disconnected. This method of shutting down the computer usually causes corruption or some other problem when the operating system is booted up again.
