Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet

When buying new battrey

When buying a new laptop or a second laptop battery, pay attention to the power specs. Generally speaking, you need to know how many cells the battery has. The more cells, the longer the battery can last on a charge. For example, a 12-cell battery is designed to last much longer than a six-cell battery. Alternatively, the specs might list Watt-Hour rating, or WHr. The higher the number, the longer your battery should last. Some computer makers, such as Apple, describe laptop batteries in terms of WHr, while others use cells.

My daughters Dell is only 4 weeks old, you push the power button and the light on the button illuminates for about 10 seconds, nothing appears on the screen and then it shuts off. Have true about 15 times now.

Hello sean_gillett,
Remove power completely from the device. If it is a laptop, remove the battery. Wait about 30 seconds for the power to drain, then reapply the power source.
If it's a laptop, you may need to let it charge 15 or 20 minutes. A desktop should power up just fine. If it does not, contact Dell immediately for warranty repair!
If this helped you, please give me 4 thumbs up!!

just wanted to know how much a person would pay for one that is offered street value

It totally depends on what model phone you have...
But generally speaking you may expect to pay about half cost of what a new one would cost, IF it i is good condition. If the phone is in poor condition then much less...

My Compaq Presario C500T lap top won't start

Generally speaking, an orange power light indicates problems with the power. You also described to a "T" how a bad battery behaves. To test this theory, take out the battery and plug in the laptop. It should power up and run. If so, it's time to invest in a new battery.
To be doubly sure, if you have anyone with the same laptop as yourself, plug in their battery to your laptop. It should work if their battery is good.
