Laptp power doubt

Does, operating system has any control over the power used on the laptop. I observed, that when i was using vista, the battery would last long. With XP , however is not supporting long. 
Is the power of laptop, somehow related to OS?

I've heard that computer companies are being asked to design for less energy and this would confirm that they are so I would say YES!

Battery is plugged in the laptp Dell inspiron but not charging


First, I would check to see if your Battery is one that was RECALLED by following this link. Next, I recommend that you rule out the possibility that the Power Supply may be the issue/ Or the Battery may need to be replaced. Do the following:
1) Remove the Battery Pack and boot the system by using only the Power Supply. If your system runs normally without any issues, it is probably the battery that needs to be replaced.

My acer aspire one notebook its power its on but its not operating.


Hi there, remove the battery & run directly via power code. If nothing changed then, please restart your laptop when its booting press F8 key . You will find few option asking for selection. Select that by using up/down arrow key. Select " Last know good configuration" & press Enter. Next page asking for selecting operating system, for example: windows vista or Windows XP etc. Just select the operating system & press Enter again. ( Hope your laptop showing only one operating system ). Your laptop will start normally. After the if you seen the screen dark then press FN+Right arrow in key board(>). When you press FN + ( < ) or ( >) key that's time its working for brightness controlling for screen. Now if all well then fine other wise please let me know .
Another suggestion is run your Acer driver DVD for installing Display drivers. When finish restart your laptop and watch whats going. If no success then format the Operating system & reinstall again.

Thanks & waiting for your feedback

Is any turbo c and c++ compatible with windows vista OS.


Highly doubtful since both the Turbo C and Turbo C++ were created for DOS, Windows 3.0 and Windows 3.1. You might be able to use Vista's compatibility mode to run the program with disabled Vista features but I doubt it for a program that old. I think Vista's compatibility mode only goes down to Windows 98 SE.

Hope this helps...

Inspiron 1525 keyboard and touchpad locked at bootup. Unable to enter user password to load Vista. HELP!


My friend has one of these and I really Dont know why but VIsta is always the Operating system that causes this.
Try this: at the log in screen press the F9 key see if it unlocks. unfortunately i doubt that that worked but hey it was a try
Now
try this: at the bottom of your laptop there should be a lever that releases the battery (remove the battery) leave it out and use your power cord only to boot the system. that usually works for me.
Hope that fixes your problem. Thanks for posting on Fixya.com

if you have new laptop with Vista OS it should be ok.
if you have new laptop design for vista but rather installed XP maybe you will encounter difficulties loading drivers if you dont have xp driver cd (acer provided)
if you have old laptop with XP OS it should be ok.
if you have old laptop w/ lower memory and trying to install Vista it will not work or you will incounter difficulties
