Lap works but the battery does not charge

The lap top is less than 12 months old, has windows vista on it. When you reply please use the KISS theory I'm not a big user of computers.

1. There can be a lose contact - Turn around the laptop and reseat the batteries. 2. Vista usally takes lot of battery resouces, resulting in fast draining. You may make use of Battery Saver (http://blogs.microsoft.co.il/blogs/tamir/archive/2007/05/14/Vista-Battery-Saver.aspx) 3. If none of the above help, you may have either replace the battery/trans switch. Call Toshiba if you are under warranty or seek help from a local technician
let us know the results, thnx

¿ tiempo de carga de la bateria en lap top por primera vez?


Hello,
Sorry, espanol no hablo

You must let the battery cargar completemente maybe 4 o 5 horas if you are not using the computer (OFF) , and 12 a 13 horas if computer is ON. Don't leave it charged in the computer while computer is connected to the power socket, unless you also charging the battery.
Before charging it a second time, make sure it is completely drained. Some manufacturers (Toshiba) recommend to cycle the battery (charge, discharge) 2 or 3 times before using it.
Every month you should allow it to be drained.

Tu dois laisser la batterie se charger complètement. Cela prendra 4 à 5 heures si l'ordinateur est éteint, et 12 à 13 heures si l'ordinateur est en marche. Ne laisse pas la batterie dans l'ordinateur s'il est connecté à la prise, sauf si la batterie est en train d'être chargée. Certains constructeurs (Toshiba) recommandent de faire subir à la batterie 2 ou 3 cycles charge-décharge avant de pouvoir l'utiliser de façon autonome.

Chaque mois tu dois la laisser se décharger complètement.

Hope it helps.

No sound please help inspiron lap top not


Did you ever have sound. If you did, depending on the version of windows use the system restore feature. Windows XP can go back months, while Vista can only about a month when you show restore points older than 5 days. Just search for the system restore feature for your operating system. Use the help menu to locate the program (In vista it will be named differently but the help menu will show you where it is).

Wont accept my printer on this lap top ,my printer ran ok on my old pc but cant get it to work on my new lap top.keeps saying its not compatable


I think that is because your old pc was a different operating system than your laptop. So the printer might not support newer operating systems.

My lap top won't detect wireless


Make sure that the program used to monitor your wireless card doesn't have a virus, or with windows, either you have to let windows enable your wireless or you have to use the program.. if you have both trying that could be the problem.

HP812C and/or Epson LX300+ dot matrix Printers installed to a HP V3431 lap top computer would not print.


Download the latest drivers from the manufacturer websites rather then relaying on the old cdroms - they are probarbly outdated and made for XP.
