Yes, there is an internal battery that keeps the time, it is called the cmos battery and belive it or not, if the time is not set, it won't boot, you can get a cmos battery for your laptop pretty cheap on ebay, and east to install, just pop the old one out and put the new one in, must open the laptop to do this, or take it to someone to do it for you.

HP P2015dn wirless connection stopped working


Hi,
There is not wireless netwrok card is HP LJ P2015dn, However as i can understand you r using External Wireless Router or Wireless network or jet-direct card if u r able to work fine on USB than printer printing mechanism is working fine.
If u connect the printer via wired network connection and it keeps on loosing IP address than it may be problem with onboard network card of the printer.
If printer keeps on loosing IP Address than try upgrading the firmware of the printer.
To check the firmware and IP Address of the printer print a configuration page by pressing and holding down green button for 6 to 7 seconds

OS-x driver for Brother HL-730 (600dpi) printer


Macs don't use drivers, but rather .ppd files.  you should be able to download the PPD from brothers website:  http://www.openprinting.org/ppd-o-matic.cgi?driver=hl7x0&printer=Brother-HL-730&show=0
(Direct Download Link)
When you are in system settings, goto printers, select the network printer, and when you get to choose the PPD from the pulldown menu choose "Other" and you should be able to browse to the PPD you downloaded.
you are using a UNIX based system.  The Linux PPD should work just fine.

DVD player skips audio and/or frames


PowerBook G4 is at least a five-year-old machine at this point. A DVD drive can **** in lots of dust in five years. Try hooking up to an external DVD drive. If it plays the same discs with no problem, you need a cleaning or replacement. Frankly, an external DVD drive is cheaper than replacing your internal drive.

Hp officejet 6110 won't print


No, I don't think it is.
Normal 0 Could have a corrupt driver.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
