Re: 2nd battery

When using a Laptop with a 2nd battery facility, the 2nd battery usually replaces the CDROM/DVD drive, there is usually a special battery or battery mounting plate that holds the battery in the CD bay properly

When the laptop is turned on, it only gets to the logo page which says In touch with tomorrow: toshiba. It does not boot at all, and only gives the options of hitting f2 or f12 for booting options, neither...

The problem is not with the battery or the AC power supply
( I assume you tried pressing F8 safe mode before the loading screen appeared?)

Get into the Bios by pressing ( I think its F2 or F10) as soon as the laptop starts up (before loading screen).
Check in the main page, that the laptop "sees" the hard drive. If it does not, then the hard drive has failed. (you can check this by substituting another drive and seeing if the laptop recognizes this in the Bios).
See also that the DVD rom is recognised
In the Boot order screen, check that the boot order is set to 1st boot DVD/CD drive and the 2nd is set to hard drive.

Using a windows install disc, boot to CD and see if windows wants to install (if the hard drive is recognised in the Bios but has an internal fault, Windows will tell you before it installs the OS)

If the drive IS recognised and windows installs ok, let it go to the 2nd repair option, where it looks for previous installations of windows and let it repair the system (your files will not be wiped)

If Windows reports that there is no HDD, then you should try a spare HDD and see if it will format and install .

At best, it sounds like the MBR has been corrupted, in which case the over the top install above should fix it, at worst, the hard drive has failed and will need replacing

This is the 2nd time that my battery won't take a charge. So now my 2nd battery doesn't work!! I have only had this Acer Aspire 150-1949 for a year. Do I have to buy yet another battery??

Try to perform power drain first before buying a new battery. Take out the battery first then unplug the power adapter. Press and hold the power button for 30 secs. Put the battery back in, plug in the power adapter then power up the computer.

Battery light flashes 4 times red then once green. Charger is functioning and the battery is at 100% charge. In power options it shows another position for battery no.2 however there isnt one. The laptop...

Here is a link on the LED issue
The battery is usable, but will slowly decline.

The system has the option of a 2nd battery in the media bay (In place of the optical drive) but since you don't have one installed, it just shows the 2nd battery as an option

Hp nc4010 second battery


The second battery would replace the cd/dvd drive in that slot. Obviously you would lose the ability to play cds/dvds..The drive is easy to remove -just push on the button to the right and then pull out the drive. Hope this helps..Michael

How to install 2nd battery

Most laptops these days do not have a second slot for a battery. This laptop only uses one battery. You would be best off purchasing a second battery and charging it ahead of time.
