Question about PC Laptops
Over the last week or so my laptop has gone from fully functioning to an irratic pain to use. There are a couple of issues, and I fear they are related:
1) Basically when I start up the computer the keyboard runs fine in BIOS but once windows starts to boot up the keyboard and mouse lock up completely if the battery is left in the laptop (whether it is plugged in or not, the battery seems to be the key here). Sometimes a USB keyboard/mouse will not work either. And on occasion the mouse and keyboard will work until the laptop realises it is just on the battery and then it all locks up as the power profile is enabled (regardless of how the profile is configured)!
2) The battery always reports 3% charge, but the time remaining seemsfairly representitive of what I can expect, I believe this is down to thePCB board in the battery itself.
3) The camera has stopped responding totally and I occasionally get USB device not recognised, guessing that may be a bad connection.
I cannot get hold of a spare battery for testing very easily (I can borrow it for a few hours every Thursday) and the laptop did not come with any discs but most of the drivers appear to be available online or possibly available through the image of the disc I burnt.
Cheers for any help!
