Hmmm, it's possible to attempt to return your system to that point, call the mfg, tell them the issue, they may have a function that will allow you to restore it to factory settings...

I worked on a Toshiba laptop with a similar issue, the owner left the laptop on/plugged in/battery in all the time, only sleep/hibernate. I never found a solution. She gave it to me and I still haven't been able to fix it. New BIOS, cleaned, new thermal paste, laptop cooler, etc. It's just worn out. Maybe a heat sensor? Have you tried SPEEDFAN: http://filehippo.com/download_speedfan/ Depending on your CPU, it may work and it's free.

Acer aspire will not turn on or charge


Hello bperez28,

There are 3 possible reasons for that problem.

1. Battery is dead or is not seated properly. Try removing the battery from your laptop and then replace it back. If the battery is dead, it will not charge anymore. If it is still under warranty, ask for a replacement.

2. Charger is malfunctioning. Try to plug it into a different know working plug outlet. You might need to replace the charger with a new one.

3. Motherboard issue. Needs servicing.

You need trial and error to know exactly which of those is the reason why your Laptop is malfunctioning. Try a different charger/battery BEFORE buying one.

You can contact ACER directly from this link:

Part of the screen stays white in my nc150 netbook Looks like it's a left 1/3 of the screen is always white with some thin black and white vertical stripes but the rest of it works fine. I would like...


Paul -
This absolutely could be the ribbon cable connecting your screen to your motherboard. If you know how to check this, it would be worth trying before spending $150+ on an LCD. Any way you look at it, this is definitely a hardware issue. Just hope it's not the motherboard's onboard video card. Here is a modified answer I gave to a question similar to your issue:
If you turn on your laptop and the display is bad, your issue is with either the LCD screen or the motherboard (since the video card is built-in the motherboard). This will be easy to diagnose.
1.) Plug an external monitor (one which you know works) into the VGA port of your laptop.
2.) Turn on the laptop.
3.) Hold down the FN key (lower-left corner of the keyboard) and press the "CRT/LCD" key (it will be located on the number keys or F1-F12. You do this to tell the laptop that it needs to send the video signal to the external monitor instead of its built-in LCD screen.
If the display is good on the external monitor, then the issue is with the laptop's LCD screen (about $200 for the part plus labor to install). If the display is still messed up on the external monitor, then your problem is with the motherboard ($300-$500 for the part plus a lot in labor cost for installation).

Let me know if this helps you!

At turn on it gives a window error i have a windows 7 version on it i tried fixing the errors with the options it has but nothing seems to work


If you get a blank screen here's the steps below, if this is not the issue, please ignore it. Please let me know the exact error so that I can give you a solution.

Mo Bradley consumer advocate advises on how to save money and side step rip offs.

You turned on your laptop and horrors upon horrors, the screen is BLACK! You see that the laptop has power but besides that nothing is happening. I want you to know that there is a very good chance you can get out of this situation quickly and without any cost. This fix works on all brands of laptops:

Mo Bradley says do this:
• 1) TAKE OUT YOUR LAPTOP BATTERY
• 2) REMOVE YOUR AC ADAPTOR CORD, that's the wall power, remove it.
• 3) NOW HOLD DOWN THE POWER BUTTON FOR 30 SECONDS

2.That will drain any static electricity that has built up on your laptop system board and many times fixes the problem of a black screen. After the 30 seconds re-connect your laptop to the wall power and hit the power button normally and see if the laptop comes back up.

Replace your battery.

3.Did this help you? If so Mo Bradley has one more quick tip to save your pocket.

I would like you to save on the high cost of replacement printer ink and I implore you not to buy Original Brand replacement ink. This is the rip off of the century and the Original Brand companies are not even ashamed. Try this website http://www.usainktank.com/ for ink which is mostly under $4.00 each (even HP ink) or if they don't have your printer model try some of the other suppliers of off brand printer ink. In the past I have used http://www.4inks.com/ and http://www.123inks.com/. They all have good quality off brand cartridges that will save you so much money.

I hope you find it very helpful.

Will a low battery cause a black screen


Low battery may also cause of black screen but not all the time it is a case to case basis. But if your battery is fully and you even plug it directly to the power source to the wall but still having the issue, well, that is different. But don't worry I have solution for you.

Driver ricoh webcam HP pavilion DV6000


I had the same problem of code 10. I am using an HP pavilion dv6000 with a ricoh webcam. I found that I download a microsoft updates on the 8th of febuary which included some sonix drivers which were optional and no good to me but stoped my webcam working.
By going into 'control panal' and selecting 'system' then 'devise manager' you get a list of your system. If you then select the 'universal serial bus controlers' at the bottom you will see the sonix driver. By rolling back this installed driver I found my webcam started working again.
This solved my problem and I cant believe there aren't a lot of people out there with the same problem. Good old microsoft!
