It seems that the system files has got corrupted.
reinstalling the os will clear the problem.
If you are worried about your data, don't install the os by formatting the hard drive. just repair your existing os using the installation disc.
hopes this wil help you to overcome your problem.feel free to notify.

Sony Vaio P Series Netbook shows its charging but stills stays at 1percent availabe almost 3hours


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.

My Dell Inspiron CD Drive Won't Stay Shut


Wow. Power off the laptop then turn it over. Look for the one screw that holds the cd drive. It will have a circular icon on it. Remove the screw and then pull the cd drive out. Then put it back in and replace the screw. Hopefully all it needed was to be reseated.
