Laptop freezes up when battery connected

Spent hours before discovering the problem is related to the battery. Once that was found out i did some online searches to see if this was a common problem. I've found a few cases where other people have experienced the same type of thing. Is it better to run the laptop with no battery or with the microsoft ACPI complience device dissabled? Is this a permanent fix or do i need to order a new battery? If so does anyone know the best place to buy one from?

Re: Laptop freezes up when battery connected

With ACPI power management, the computer has the ability to function as follows: ? The computer is ready for immediate use when the user turns it on. ? The computer appears to be off when not in use, but it can still respond to wakeup events. Wakeup events can occur when a device receives input, such as a telephone ringing, or when software requests that the computer wake up at a predetermined time (for example, to download e-mail so it is ready in the morning). ? The system can change how software responds when the power state of the computer changes. The operating system and applications work together to operate the computer and deliver effective power management according to the user's current actions. Applications do not keep the computer busy unnecessarily; instead, they proactively participate in shutting down the computer to conserve energy and reduce noise. It is best to turn the ACPI on and buy a new battery. I would shop on the internet. Try;

My MPC t2300 laptop wom't turn on.

The Transport T2300 has an internal battery that will run the laptop for several minutes after the main battery goes dead. This feature allows you to save your work and shut down safely. If you run the laptop until both batteries are dead, even a brand new battery can't start the unit again. You have to follow this procedure:
1.Unplug power cord

2. Remove any attached periphal components including the cd rom and/or floppy disk module if you have one. Both remove with a push button switch located on the bottom of the unit.

3. Plug in power cord and charge the unit for a minimum of 24 hours straight. 30 hours is better. This whole time will be spent slowly recharging the internal back up battery.

4. Once that is done, unplug power cord again and reinstall any floppy/cd drives. Plug power cord back in now and charge for at least 24 hours again.

If your backup battery is dead, you can't charge the main battery or turn the unit on. The longer you charge, the better. We had one unit here that had to be on the initial battery backup for 72 hours before it finally took hold. Then, one overnight recharge on the regular battery and all was well.
If you need drivers or manuals for the 2300, all are available on cd at for around $9.50 including shipping, handling, and owners manual

My laptop freezes often and clock stops running

i would recommend a fresh install of windows and if that doesn't solve your problem then check that your processor isn't loose and while you check inside the laptop give it a good hoovering to get rid of any dust. i think maybe it freezes because it gets too hot so i would recommend hoovering inside and buying a laptop cooling platform off ebay (fans that the laptop sits on.

This could be either hardware or software related. If you could tell us what the exact blue screen is I can be more specific in my answer. The possible causes for this could be virus/malware, corrupted registry(which could be due to failing harddrive), faulty memory, or faulty motherboard.

BTW, the "reload" they did will not fix much, which is why you had the same problem within days.

Screen shakes and it freezes

i suspect a possible loose contact between the ribbon connecting the motherboard module to the LCD display module. if you can open up the laptop, check if the both the ends are snug and tight.
