The battery needs to be conditioned. To condition a battery, plug in the AC adaptor and charge it to 100%. Unplug the AC adaptor and run the battery completely down to 0% or until the computer shuts itself down or goes into a hibernate mode. Once this occurs, plug the AC adaptor back in and fully re-charge the battery to 100% again. You should now be good to go.

Let me know what happens and if this has solved your problem. Thank you, Binary Bob

Unplug your UPS from the wall. Disconnect the batteries. Push the on button. LED's may flash. This is how to reset the logic. Connect the batteries and plug back in. Everything should be reset.

My laptop is plugged in but is not charging


This is almost always a bad battery, but occasionally is the charging circuit.
Unfortunately there's no concrete test to tell which is the issue without putting another battery in it.
See if a friend has the same laptop, and ask if you can borrow their battery to do this test.
A repair shop might be able to tell you which is the issue, but as I said, it's about 90-95% certainty that it's the battery.

GM5664 will not boot up, What can I do?


There's something very wrong with the boot order from your pc: apparently now it's set to boot from network - something that is done only in network servers.  This happens when the BIOS battery (or the BIOS chip itself) start failing - it's time to start saving for a new pc, this motherboard has started to show signs of old age.
Enter the BIOS and set a new order: put the cd first, then the hard disk second and finally disable all the others. Save, exit and it should boot just fine

Each time you remove the batteries you need to reset the channel so the mouse and the device are on the same channel so they can communicate.
I hope this helped.
Good Luck.

My Nomad zen xtra 40gb is stock !!!


It sounds like the hard drive may be damaged. Have you tried to put it in recovery mode?

Put a paperclip in the reset hole while holding down the play button until you see the screen go to recovery mode. Then try the format option; this will erase all your files but it will tell you if you need a new hard drive.

Slight E-100 problem


You may need to open the case to see for any bad contact since this unit has been used for such a long time. Another test to check whether the problem is from the battery by plug the unit with the charger without battery.If the unit is on, then definitely, the problem is from battery and yo just simply replace it. But if it is still not on, then I suggest you do the check as I mentioned in the frst sentence above. Good Luck.
