I was on the internet and it just stopped working. Everything just shut off. It came back on the next day, and it said the battery was charging, but then it completely died and now the battery wont even charge. Its bullcrap!

A common trouble is that the solder joints from the power jack to the motherboard can break. This is due to flexing the power plug over time. When this happens the power can't get onto the board at all to run the computer or charge the battery. Sometimes the connections may still work, so you get the intermittent operation you mentioned.

Usually this can be repaired, but it means disassembling the computer to take out the motherboard and resoldering the connections. In some cases, the motherboard can be damaged by heating and arcing from the bad connections and can't be repeaired, but this is pretty rare. A computer shop might be able to do the repair if they get into that level of service.

Aswell as my daughter I've installed the drivers (Vista and 7) of the Lexmark x4550 wireless, but she can only print when my laptop is 'on'. How can she print without the use of my laptop.


Hello,
All you need to do is to remove the printer currently added on your daughter's laptop(most likely it is the printer installed on your laptop)and then add the lexmark printer manually on your daughters laptop. Make sure when you do this your laptop is turned off. If this won't work, that means that the laptop of your daughter does not detect the wireless printer.
hope this helps...

hmm just ur power supply (battery) might have burned out if ur lucky
and if ur unlucky then ur mobo fried out also
so i would suggest is getting a replacement battery from a store that accpets returns (such as staples, best but or along these lines) and get a battery that replaces the old one. and if ur lucky the new battery would do the trick (this seemslike what happened)
if not.... just take the hard drive from that laptop and buy a new laptop and put the new hard drive in that laptop
or u can take it to a technician and ask him to see if ur mobo fried up and if its a real expensive laptop (probably is cause its a BEnQ) then just replace the mobo probably cost u around 150

Starting the laptop


Unplug all external devices. Remove the battery and ac adapter. Then try again with just the ac adapter and no battery. If it works, turn it off and put the battery back in. Everything should be fine.

What your daughter did is absolutely harmless, unless your laptop is set-up not to go to standby mode then eventually hibernate when the lid is closed. In that case if it was put into a laptop bag while running it may have overheated. If that's the case it may need a motherboard or CPU, have it checked out.
