You need a new battery. Rechargable batteries eventually die and need to be replaced. The best way to make your battery last is to let it run all the way down each time before recharging.

As for the display, this sounds like a serious problem with the screen. How long the screen will last is impossible to guess - it might keep working the way it is for a few years, or it might die within months.

If your laptop is under warranty, send it to HP for repairs. If not, you should find out how much it will cost to repair before sending it in. If you want to buy a battery and take your chances on the screen lasting, I would suggest buying a used battery through eBay (or another source) rather than spending full price, just in case the laptop dies.

If you decide to keep the laptop and get a used battery, I suggest backing up important files regularly.

How do I fix dead ( not stuck) Pixels on my acer laptop? It appears like a smll hole in screen


You can't fix dead pixels, the transistor is faulty. This is indicated by black spots.

Stuck pixels remain a solid color other than white. This cane sometimes be fixed using software that flashes solid colors on the screen. Hot pixels remain solid white. this can be fixed in the same manner.

These are free software to fix stuck pixels.

Try a replacement charger as if that has leaking components, it may take a while to produce the correct power required to run your laptop.

Dead pixel how to resolved


Dead pixels are shame from manufacturers. They all tolerate them (you need to have more than eight for returning). Only few manufacturers talk about free of dead-pixels. One possible solution is pressing the pixel (not so hard press) and than shutdown the screen. Sometimes it will recover frozen pixel, but if you press to much, it can make another one. If you have enough for return, it will not be so bad if you have guarantee. If you are lucky to not have dead pixel transistor, this can help. But if transistor is dead, you will not success with this technique.
Good luck!

My battery life lasts 1 1/2 hur. i was told it will last up to 7hurs. how can i fix that. it's a 6 cell battery and it's fully charged. Thank you.


I've rarely seen a 7 hours battery capabality for laptops (seen it ownly in notebooks), normaly they last at the most 4 to 5 h. with laptop running in minimal performance mode...

how old is the battery? if it's new it should last aproximately the time of the specified ratings in the laptop's normal use (according to it's manual) if not it could be defective ask for exchange

if it's an old battery you could try to refresh it by draining it down COMPLETELY and charging it back several times (5 to 10 time)

the best way to drain it completely is to boot in to the BIOS (on battery power) and let it drain untill the computer shutt's off, than re-charge, and so on...

Good luck!

Powers up for 1 to 2 seconds shuts itself off


probably a boot loop, hold down the f8 key when you turn it on untill you see a boot menu and select "safe mode", if you can get it to start there, you should be able to shut it down and have it start normaly the next time. if not hold down f8 again and select "last known good configuration". if it still continues to loop after that, you will have to reinstall windows.

My laptop is not turnnig-on!


Try removing the battery and running from the AC power supply only. If this works, your battery probably can no longer hold a charge and the battery will need to be replaced.

Removing the battery allows the power supply to power your laptop rather than trying to charge a dead battery

Have an acer aspire 5002WLMi laptop bought second hand. no manual. old battery. If I bought a new battery, how long of a charge would I get. Is it ok to continually use my adapter/recharge cord when I use...


I use the adapter plugged in all day long, it will not do any damage to your battery. You can leave it plugged in a work as long as you want. Just make sure you get the lithium ion battery as that is the latest..in fact I would get it off of the Acer home page if possible. As for as how long a battery last, depends on the usage and how many times you recharge it. Lithium are good for over 1000 recharges so again depends on your usage. Its the recharge that wears it down. Hope this helps. Pls rate this solution.

Dead pixel


One trick that might work is to use your finger nail or a pop sickle stick to massage the screen in the area of the dead pixel. Has worked about 1/2 the times that I have tried it.
Hope this helps!

Black Spots on LCD for Latitude D505


If you?re positive that the black spots aren?t dirt or scratches on the outside of your screen you are probably dealing with dead screen pixels. Short of replacing the LCD screen there is no way to repair them.
