You can remove the battery and run it. It's just warning you about the power status of it.

I got a Toshiba notebook computer that does the same thing. It's seven years old. The battery probably only charged for the first three years.

I have purchase lenovo Y410 but DVD drive not working since 8 days . Kindly suggest how to resovle this issue Thanks Dinesh


I would 'slap' Windows around, and make it reinstall the drivers for the DVD optical drive.

Vista:

[Note* All clicks are Left-click unless otherwise noted]

1) Click on Start (Windows logo button)

2) Click on Control Panel

3) Click on Device Manager

4) After Device Manager loads all the way, click on the + sign to the left of -
DVD/CD-ROM drives

5) Right-click on the name of the DVD optical drive

6) Click on Uninstall

Windows will come up with a 'squawk box',
"Warning you are about to uninstall this device"

It's okay, click on OK.

Now close all windows, and go back to the desktop screen.
Restart the computer.

When Windows has fully loaded you should get a pop-up out of the system tray,
"Found new hardware device", and perhaps another one will follow,
"Found XXXX optical drive"
(XXXX being the name of the optical drive)

If this doesn't work try cleaning the laser optical eye of the DVD optical drive.

Laptop on open the DVD optical drive tray.
Turn the laptop off.
Remove ALL power to the laptop.
(AC adapter {Charger} and Battery)
Use a can of compressed air for computers.

Or use a disk cleaning device for cleaning CD/DVD optical drives. (Power plugged into the laptop)

I'm Cambodian customer for sony VGN SR25G. now I cannot see the CD Rom driver in window explorie please help me thanks in advance


Go to Device Manager. Uninstall the CDROM.

Vista:
Start>Control Panel>System Maintenance>Double-click on the Device Manager icon.

XP:
Start>Right-click on My Computer>Left-click on Properties>Left-click on the Hardware tab>Device Manager

In Device Manager left-click on the + sign next to - CD/DVD-ROM drives.
Right-click on the name of the CD/DVD drive.
Left-click on Uninstall.

Windows will come up with a warning,
"Warning you are about to uninstall this device."
It's okay. Click on OK.

Close all windows go back to the desktop screen.
Restart your computer.
After Windows loads you should see a pop-up out of the system tray,
"Found new hardware device"

There may be another one that follows,
"Found XXXXX CD/DVD drive"

You've just made Windows match up the driver/s for your CD/DVD drive.
If you cannot use the optical drive now, suspect the laser optical eye may be dirty.
Use a can of compressed air for computers, and clean the optical drive out the best you can.

[Computer has all power removed. Remove the AC adapter (Charger) and Battery. The optical drive tray is left open before turning the laptop off, and removing power]

Or use a device for cleaning the optical drive.

If it doesn't work past this point suspect a bad optical drive.

LAPTOP JUST SHUTS OFF AFTER VARIOUS PERIODS OF TIME. NO WARNING AT ALL. DOESN'T SEE LIKE A BATTERY BEING LOW AS THERE IS NO WARNING AND UNIT PLUGGED IN TO AC


It probably is overheating, and is shutting itself down, to avoid PERMANENT damage.

Turn the computer off.
Disconnect the AC power.
Remove the battery.
Purchase a can of compressed-air, and give the computer a "blow-job" -- shooting compressed air everywhere into the vents, to remove a layer of dust, that has been acting as insulation, causing your computer to overheat.

How do you reset a CMOS password


the best thing to reset the cmos password of anything is to remove the cmos battery,

but in case of latop you will have to open it,,which is a touch job,,

so you can do it by opening your laptop and removing the cmos supply for 1 minute..

dont try any crack tools of bios,,the may damage it permanently..

Thanks again...


Sometimes, the battery alarm is set to high or off and it will automatically warn you when the battery is at a certain percentage. Most newer laptops will even warn you when the battery is going bad.

The AC cord is both the power cord and it will also charge the battery when plugged in as well.

So, it's safe to run on just battery as it may just be telling you that it doesn't have AC power and that you're running only on the battery. My Satellite laptop is setup to warn you when it's only on battery power as well.

Is it safe?


It's safe to use with the battery that way. Do you have a power cord for it?
