    Thank you so much - we tried that now...we get a message the installed battery may not be compatibly with computer or installed correctly (but it is the right battery and is installed correctly). The battery light continues to flash on and off? :0( Thank you for helping though...any other ideas?

Have you tried going through the setup screen and selecting the default values for the BIOS? Usually that is necessary any time the battery power is lost.

Installing windows on acer notebook help


you cannot usually switch installed operating systems from computer to computer like that and still expect windows to boot, but with windows 98 it *might* work.

to install windows 98 on the usb drive, insert and boot from the windows 98 disk like you were to install it on that computer , and then, it should, before it formats any drives, give you a choice of what drive to format.

I just replaced the battery on my toshiba L45 notebook and as soon as the battery is installed,it freezes up the computer. If the computer is off and battery is installed,it will not boot up.Everything...


Have you tried just the battery and power led for 24 hrs? A new baterry needs initial charge period before use and could be taking the majority of the power supplied by the adaptor, hence the freezing.

Hi hope u can help atleast ...


That is a simple problem with a difficult answer. The bios has been infected by a virus that has placed its self in the chip. You need to flash the bios chip which is very diffcult on a laptop motherboard. 

Take the motherboard completely out of the casing. Find the bios battery and remove it and keep it removed for about an hour, come back to it replace the battery and then try to reinstall xp home. If this continues you'll need to wipe the bios and reinstall it and that is more or less a waste of time and a pain in the backside.

Will not boot ??


sounds like a problem i had with a philips laptop (which appears to be a twinhead repackaged as a philips)

This might sound weird but it works........

Take the battery out and disconnect from the ac
Press and hold the power button for about 40secs
connect the ac but don't replace the battery and press the power button
then replace the battery and turn it on. it should work

hello the first thing to make sure of is that the ac adaptor cable is not having any partial contacts ofany kind whereby power gets into the laptop irregularly.this could have adverse effect on the circuitry. it is not enough just checking the output of the ac adapter by a meter.try straighten the cable from the adapter and check the meter for voltage fluctuations. if the above is okay then the problem could be on board leve.
