Battery warning

Just ran into this problem. New 3rd party battery with the badly translated message:

"Battery Life Time in current state is not longer.
Because you may lose your data during using, please replace to new battery.
(honest goods)

Tip> Battery Pack is Cunsumerable device.

This pack is not working correctly or life time is not longer,
please use to replace to new battery (honest goods)."

What I did was when the message pops up, hot ctrl-ald-del > start task manager > right click on it in applications and click "Go to Process" > right click on the .exe file and "open file location" > and just changed the name of the executable file by just putting a 1 on the end of the name. No more pop-ups

Who the hell uses Easy Display Manager anyway? Stupid program.

sound like the battery ran down and the pc is now without power, meaning the power supply that was plugged in has failed. the pc ran on battery until it ran down. try another power lead. you can get generic universal one cheaper than oem from any pc shop

Compaq Armada e500 will not turn on


After reading your problem i think that your charger i malfunctioning as it is not charging the battery when it is plugged in..

The message you have mentioned comes only when your battery crosses the lower limit of charge..and your charger is not charging so it ran out..

Thank you

The laptop was unplugged and went into standby mode when the battery ran out. I have recharged the battery but the standby indicator is still on and nothing happens when I try to start it.

can you take out your battery and plug in the power? if it works, i suspected it's a battery faulty. if not please make sure to charge up your battery up to 100% then boot up your machine normally.

A couple of things to try: Take out the battery and try to turn on the laptop while it is plugged in with out the battery.
Unplug the laptop and try to turn it on with just the battery.
Leave the laptop plugged in for a bit and then try to start it up.
Are any of the lights on the laptop on?  Also, the battery should have a status light on it as well.  Check what that says.

Computer won't start

My Acer Aspire LapTop will not even power up.
What should we do as this machine has also been charging battery for two days

It has worked before but all of sudden it simply failed to power up.

What's up with this !

Acer Extensa 4220 laptop configuration interrupted

You may need to boot from a system disk and follow prompts to reconfigure from there. There is no way to tell which drivers or devices it was configuring when interrupted, so booting from the disk and starting with reconfigure from there should help.
Good luck, I am sure you will be able to resolve this.
