Question about Compaq Evo N610C Notebook
I have sold a compaq n610c that i installed myself, to a Friend but a few Days later he comes back with it telling me that the Battery doesn't charge.
I take it home with me and i found out that when i switch ON the Laptop it tells me "No booting Drive found" or something similar after doind once "CTRL - ALT - DEL" it then Boots corecctly into Windows. This was the first weird thing i discovered.
Once in Windows i went to look if the Battery was charging or if it was even being recognized by the System and the scond weird thing happened, the System was Blinking that small blue Ray of light over the Battery symbol that shows that it is loading the Battery plus every time the ray of light showed up while blinking a small text appeared saying "0% [Loading]" and i could read there: "Source of Energy: Alternate"! Shouldnt the Battery receive "continuous" Electricity instead of "alternate"??
I then tried to change the original charger with a Universal charger to see if the problem persisted and yes it did, the Universal charger didn't change anything.
The third weird thing the Laptop is doing is, that everytime i boot up or reboot the computer, the Date and Time in Windows sets back to 1980 and Windows Warns me of that fact. Why in Hell is this Laptop doing this weird things? When i gave it to my Friend it was Working flawlessly and 2 Days later it does all this weird things.
Do you have any Idea what could have happened? And how do i resolve this issues? I had Flashed the Bios with the newest one from HP while installing the system and now i flashed back to the older Bios it had before but that didnt made a difference either, i was thinking the small Bios Battery could be Dead but that dont explain some of the weird things that are happening to this Notebook.
Any Help would be very welcome and appreciated, Thank you!
The ''alternate''should mean the source (than battery)not the current.Go to control panel check the settings on power options and change the small bios baterry(as you thought) If the problem continious change and the normal battery or check it with no battery on
