When you connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED light up? If not then - The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's power socket could be faulty. Check power adapter's DC plug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced. If the adapter is OK then connect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard. This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

My cafe comes out sidewards and not by the two nozzls,. everything gets messy and I can not collect the cafe into a cup

Your spout is getting clogged with residule coffee. There is a screw pin behind the spout that you can loosen and remove the spout to clean. There will be a long tube attached to the spout dispenser.
When you put it back in the tube slips on the brew units outlet before you tighten the screw down.

Laptop keys sticking

Try the following:
1. You need to clean up your laptop keys by a soft paintbrush or vacuum cleaner. Try removing the keys by gently pulling it sidewards.
2. Run virus update and scanning. Probably there is a VIRUS on your system

Thanks. Cheers!

4- after loading windows, put the battery

Take battery out and use pencil erases to gently clean the contacts. Also clean contacts on laptop battery box.
Sometimes the contacts oxidize.

Not charging

I found out how to solve this problem...first power down your computer. Then take out the battery, remove the power supply, and then hold down the power button for 30 secs. Put the power supply in only (not the battery). Start your computer after everything is done loading up put the battery back in. Give it a min. and then you should be able to roll your cursor over the battery life indicator in the lower right corner of you computer and is should say charging. I have found that other people have had this problem and it has worked for myself and for them.
