Question about HP Compaq Presario R4000 Notebook

1 Answer

Display brightness I just fixed the power problem. The battery now charges fully. Odd thing... In the past when ever I work off the battery, the screen dimmed to save on power. But when the power was on, the screen would brighten... Now, the screen is dim when the power supply is in... and it brighten when it runs on battery. Which drains the battery way to fast...How'd this get switched? my screen brightness alternates between bright and dim, when my battery is charging on a/c or when the battery is fully charged

Ok on your keyboard there should be some way to adjust the brightness just plug in the laptop and adjust it to what you want then unplug the laptop and adjust it to what you want and it should keep that setting. if that does not work you can check the bios settings some laptop bios' have a brightness option.

On the ride the battery gets drained of power. When the battery loses power the bike loses revs. Is this the regulator and how do I test it or is there something else to check?


Same thing happened to me. It turned out to be a corroded connection from the alternator that snapped off when inspected. The first thing to check is battery condition. A fully charged battery should be around 12.5 volts. When the engine is running the voltage should increase to around 14.5 volts. If it does increase then your charging system is working as it should and the problem lies elsewhere (possibly a battery that is past its best and needs replacing). If it doesn't increase the voltage, then chec the wires from your alternator (ther should be 2 wires) and follow these to the junction connector. This was where mine was badly corroded. I used more cable to bypass this connection and my problem was fixed. I then replaced the connections with new ones and all is fine. The bright yellow straw is pointing to the corrosion problem. Hope this is of help as totally replacing your alternator isn't cheap.

Sometimes when i try to take a picture - the camera won't let me - a flashing hand appears on the display screen and it won't let me take the picture - i have the camera on auto adjustment - i just want to...


If it is set to auto then about all I can think of is low light pictures and you may have the flash disabled or the battery level is too low to power the flash .

Try taking a picture in bright sunlight and see if it behaves. I can't recal if that model disables and enables the flash with the menu or if it has a button on the case looks like a lightening flash. And don't forget to charge your battery

Back light fine with power supply and goes off on battery.


I would need to know what operating system you are running because Vista has a setting for the display brightness when running on batteries. I would suspect that, that setting is turned down to conserve battery power. If this is not the case, then the battery may be too weak to put out the correct voltage requirements for the display. If you have Vista, go to the control panel > power options > In the left pane, look for the display brightness > here you can change the brightness for running on battery and for AC power.
