I used to frequently take out the battery on my machine and put it back in over and over again until one time it sparked and made an audible pop. now it only works on ac power. some thing inside your laptop may be fried, or there may be an illegal contact somewhere either inside your laptop or inside the battery. or there may be something on the contacts that connect the battery to the laptop.

These steps came from the MSI website itself. link

Restore with reset button
1. First turn the powericon1.png off the router and press the "reset" button.
2. Power on the router and hold the reset button until M1 & M2 LED or Status start flashing.
3. Release the reset button. If the LED flashes eight times that means the reset is done but if theLED lighticon1.png flashes twice you need to repeat the steps.
Reset the router while the power is on.
1. Press and hold the reset button for about 5 seconds M1 should flash 5 times, release the reset button and the restore/reset process is done.

The screen just keeps saying that windows didnt start succesfully and it gives me 5 options to start none of which works please help??


Welcome to Fixya!!!
If all the the options in the Advance option wont work. 1.Removed your battery, ac adapter and drain you power button for 5 to 10 seconds. 2. Used only ac adapter and turn on the laptop keep on tapping f8 3. Tried any option again. first choice would be last known good configuration. then try safemode 4.If you are successful in going to safemode, try to do system restore. If it fails to load all oftions, and you dont have any important files -Try to reboot pc and hit f3 to reset the computer to factory setting. it will open a prompt to do a complete restore. If f3 does not work- the recovery partition is already corrupted. -You need to call MSI tech support to get a recovery disc from MSI -You need to resinstall the Operating System.

The power lights on the lap top are blinking every 5 seconds and the screen is blank


lights blinking means your laptop is restarting after every 5 seconds. Your lappy might have gpu( graphics processing unit ) dry solder connection problem. I would get it looked at because it could also be a heat problem

I'd like to help you, but it is very difficult to diagnose based on your description. We will need to gather more info as we try a few things.
1. Why are you reinstalling? 2. How old is the system? 3. Try the following & let me know the result: turn system back on. When the normal LED indicators are on, press & hold down the power button for 4+ seconds until everything goes off. 4. If step 3 worked, then turn power on & hit bios setup key (f2?). 5. See if HDD is detected.

Compaq nx5000 with new battery and new power


Dear,

Try pressing the CAPS LOCK. If CAPS LOCK is responding then it is surely your inverter.

It is a known problem with the nx5000 series laptop.

The FAN switches off because Intel SpeedStep which is absolutely normal.

I faced and solved at least 6 - 7 such problems on different nx5000 laptops

If CAPS LOCK is not responding then its your motherboard.

Good Luck and Regards
