You cannot re-calibrate a screen, but you can right click on desktop then click on view then on the right menu un-tick auto arrange and align to grid then you will be able to arrange the icons however you want.

Gateway NV5378u lap top, brand new battery installed and status says 100% charged. When I unplug the computer it shuts off as if there is no battery. Could the new battery be defective?


There are a few things to check. The LED lights can tell you a lot. This will tell you more about the battery:
  1. On the taskbar, double-click the power cord icon or battery icon to open the Power Meter dialog box. Note: If the power cord icon or battery icon does not appear on the taskbar, click the show hidden icons button.
  2. Press Fn+STATUS to view the power status box, which opens in the upper-left corner of the screen. The power status box shows the current power source, the battery charge level, and the power management mode.
  3. Look at the battery charge indicator (if applicable).
    • LED green - Battery is fully charged.
    • LED orange - Battery is charging.
    • LED blinking red - Battery charge is very low.
    • LED solid red - Battery is malfunctioning. Note: This LED only lights up when the notebook is connected to AC power.
  4. Press the battery meter button on the battery. The battery meter lights indicate the percentage of battery charge remaining.
  5. Wait for a Low Battery warning message to appear.
If your battery charge indicator displays what looks like an inaccurate charge, you may need to recalibrate the battery.

To recalibrate the battery as mentioned, try this:
  1. Connect the AC adapter and then turn on the notebook.
  2. As soon as it starts and you see a startup screen, press the F2 key.
  3. In the BIOS Setup utility, use the TAB key to select the Advanced menu.
  4. On the Advanced menu, select Battery Auto Learning, and then press the SPACEBAR to select Enabled.
  5. Use the RIGHT ARROW key to select the Exit menu. On the Exit menu select Exit Saving Changes, and then press ENTER.
  6. At the Setup Confirmation prompt, select Yes, and then press ENTER.
  7. The battery recalibration process begins and a screen opens showing you the progress.
  8. When the recalibration has finished, and the message "Press [Esc] key to exit" appears, press Esc. The battery charge indicator now displays an accurate battery charge.

Hope this helps!!

Sylvania 7 netbook at start applicatio servicecd.exe encountered a seriou error and must shitdown


LOL, Shitdown is about what all netbooks do. They're not worth the hype that once existed.

Try booting into safe mode and see if you can move the mouse.

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Take the Safe Mode option and let it boot up. Safe Mode will look different to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this is normal.

Battery has been charging to 100%. Suddenly would only charge to 76 percent. Now, after two weeks, will max at 62 percent. Computer is 1 year old. Can battery meter be recalibrated?


Pulled from Gateway's website:
Do not interrupt the battery recalibration process. If recalibration is interrupted, you must start the process over again.

  1. Close all open files and programs.
  2. Connect your notebook to AC power and allow the battery to completely charge.
  3. Disconnect the AC power and restart your notebook.Note: If the power cord plug.gif or battery baticon.gif icon does not appear on the taskbar, click the show hidden icons showhidden.gif button. If the icon still does not appear, verify thatAlways show icon on the taskbar is checked on the Power Options Properties Advanced tab.

  4. Completely discharge the battery by doing the following:

    1. From the desktop, right-click on the power icon, then select Adjust Power Properties.
    2. Click the Power Schemes tab.
    3. Click the arrow button to open the Power Schemes list, then click Always On.
    4. Click the Alarms tab.
    5. Click to remove the check mark from the Low battery alarm and Critical battery alarm checkboxes. Let the battery drain until your notebook automatically turns off.

  5. After the battery is completely drained, reconnect your notebook to AC power.
  6. Charge the battery completely until the yellow battery status indicator goes out.
  7. When you are ready to use your notebook again, do the following:

    1. From the desktop, right-click on the power icon, then select Adjust Power Properties.
    2. Click the Power Schemes tab.
    3. Click the arrow button to open the Power Schemes list, then click Always On.
    4. Click the Alarms tab.
    5. Click to select the Low battery alarm and Critical battery alarm check boxes.

Asus eee netbook won't display. Lights are on, but nothing is on the screen.


Hi there
sorry to hear you are having problems with your ASUS netbook. We shall start with elimination, try to connect an external monitor such as you use with a desktop PC to the blue video socket on the sides or back. It may not have a socket which should look like this philswift_9.jpg

If you see a picture on the external monitor it proves the graphics or video card in the netbook is ok. Look on the F buttons at the top of the keyboard and try to see if thiere is a CRT/LCD button, maybe a blue icon like this philswift_10.jpg
It may not be the F8 key but have a look for a similar icon to this below philswift_11.jpg
On this one it is the F7 button. Press the fn or function key first. Hold this down as you press the F key. so it changes it's function. Check your user manual if you are not sure on this.
Keep pressing the F key as see if you get external monitor or netbook monitor or both. If the netbook monitor does still not show anything then look very close at the screen while you hold it an an angle and start it up Look for very very dark images like when it normally starts up. If you can see feint very dark icons the netbooks screen backlight has failed and will need replacing. It may not be cost/effective. If you can still see nothing at all on the screen it is either 1. screen inverter 2. graphics or video chip onboard the main board 3. a different main board fail
If this netbook was cheap it may not be worth repairing. If you do want it repaired take it too a local guy if you can as you get better service.
All the best now, Phil
