SWF seeks Computer Advice

We've had this notebook for a while with no problems (maybe 4 years with multiple users). Yesterday, I purchased a new adapter because my old one was making a very faint squealing type noise and not sending power to the computer or charging the battery. I plugged in the new one this morning and it registered for about 3 seconds and then went back to battery power, which at this point, I have very little/none. I took out the battery and attempted to power the notebook with the adapter, but the computer wouldn't turn on. I put the battery back in and now it won't turn on at all. A technician in India said I need a new $140 battery. I think it might go above and beyond battery issues. Any ideas? Thanks Lacranzi

The laptop should be able to turn on without a battery and using the new power supply adapter.

Finding a new replacement battery for my laptop

The quality of the battery determines the life of the battery.
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.

Suggest OpenOffice instead.

1) Anything generated on a computer with OpenOffice, can be used on a computer with MS Office.

2) Anything generated on a computer with MS Office, can be used on a computer with OpenOffice.

3) There is no 'learning curve'. The user interface of OpenOffice looks VERY close to MS Office.

4) It is F-R-E-E

Am I proficient with using an office program? Nope. Admit it. I am a computer hardware geek.
Still stand by OpenOffice though, because those who ARE proficient, say it is GOOD.

Just my 2cents, John.

How do i get my asus model ul80j to switch from integrated graphics to nvidia

From my years of working with computers most of them only work with one video card at a time. If you have two video cards on the computer and if you have them both connected, a lot of computers get confused and can't handle that.

I've seen computers where there is a VGA Port (that normally comes with most computers) and the user goes out an purchases some heavy duty graphics video card and installs it. When they try use the VGA port, the computer refuses to switch to it as long as that other video card that they purchased is in the computer.

I've down countless of house calls to repair a computer where the purchased video card has gone bad and the customer thinks they are up the creek without a paddle until they get a new video card. Not so, I just remove the bad video card and plug into the vga video port that came with the computer.

No power to dell d620 laptop with or without battery, looking for a possible main fuse problem, where could i find it. thanks

The you most likely have one of two things for fuses places, (1) on the motherboard at the power connectors, or (2) there could be multiple fuses (ie. one in the battery, one in the power adapter, and maybe one on the motherboard.) the latter is rare but I've seen it. It doesn't really matter though because any fuses are most likely soldered in and you'll need special tools to change them without causing more harm then good.

However, if your computer is having a problem where it just plain won't turn on (ie. hit the power button and nothing happens at all), with laptops, you could need a new computer.

If you've just purchased it, use the Recovery Cd's that came with it and do a system Recovery from it. That is reinstalling windows and your problem will be solved.

2 of 4 USB Ports Not Functioning

Most likely a motherboard problem, though you can try and re-do windows, best bet on getting it all to work is Turn off CPU, Unplug Power cable, And all usb devices, let it sit for about 20mins. Plug it all back in. Turn on the CPU! Though this might really get on your nerves having to do this multiple times, id get a new motherboard.
