Is the cord frayed at one end? Is the connector at the end of the plug bent?  If any of these is true, just get a new cord, problem solved.=)

No battery is detected in dell 830


If the laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.

If your laptop battery will not hold or recharge can it be fixed and if so how i have already brought a new battery but I would like to try and use this bad on as a backup


Hi,
There is a way where even a bad battery can give backup power for about half an hour but it is only possible once. This can be done by shorting the battery cells, but i would recommend not to do it yourself or don't do it ever. There is no other way the battery can be brought to life again. It is recommended that you shouldn't throw the battery in the garbage instead send it to the manufacturer to recycle it.

Hope it helps.
Thanks and Regards

Mi optical mouse not work


If it's corded, you may have a short in your cable.

If it's wireless, check to make sure you are using Alkaline or Lithium batteries. Rechargables work great, too. If the batteries are with charge and your mouse still doesn't work, and you see a red beam or blue beam, yet it doesn't work, make sure you have a good mouse pad to use it with.

If none of these suggestions work, go find $20 in the cushions of your couch and buy a new one. ;-)

Thanks for using FixYa.

My Logitech Dinovo Edge is not recharging. When I put it in the charger the battery charging indicator light flashes red instead of green.


Were you having problems with short battery life before this happened? Most of the time if the battery is not recharging it needs to be replaced. Have never seen the red flashing light before though. It may mean that the battery has shorted out.

Power problem with laptop


The problem may be in the charger now. It could have shorted out. Do you see any lights on the unit when it is plugged in? James

It could be one of three things. It could be a bad battery, a bad ac adapter, or the recharging circuitry could be bad. I would try pulling the battery out, and see if the laptop will startup and run strictly off of the ac adapter. If that does not work, you have a bad ac adapter. If that works, and the battery has any charge left, try running it strictly on the battery. If it doesnt work, you have a bad battery. If it does work, the circuitry is bad and you will probably need new motherboard. One other thing you can check is where the ac adapter and battery plug into the laptop, and make sure there is no corrosion that could be causing a short.
