Hi,

Do this press and hold this keys nd make sure all programs are closed before you do it. ctrl + Alt + Delete, select the security option available " Start Task Manager". On the Application tab click on the program that is on the task and click "End Now". This would end the program, meanwhile you can now go to "Control Panel" and on the Program you would find "uninstall a Program" and "Change Start Up Programs". Click on chnage "Start up Programs". On the Category highlight Startup Program and scroll down to see the program that you don't want to initialize on startup. click on it and disable it. Once you do this you are free from those pops.

Hope this helped.

Regards

It should say something like "push F1 tocontinue" "push F2 to enter Setup" and "push F3 to stop showing power error's" or something like that. Then push F3 or whatever it is. If not, then just remove the battery. You don't need it as long as your plugged into the A/C adapter.... your battery doesnt charge anyways.

    There may also be a setting in your BIOS, that lets you get rid of power warnings. Not sure where, but you should be able to find it..... just push F2 when you turn your PC on, and it will go into BIOS. Then find adapter warnings or power warnings... and set it to not show.

Battery gets to 8% or so, I plug it in, it says it's charging but warning keeps flashing, screen dims off and on and then it shuts off. Charges fine when it's off. Seemed to work fine before.


If the laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.

How do I get out of DOS mode on my Macbook Pro?


The Mac does not have a DOS mode to turn off.

It does have a command line mode called 'Single User Mode' where UNIX commands can be executed. Get into SUM by holding Command S at startup.

To go back to the Mac OS X interface, type 'reboot' and press the Return key.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Battery Not Identified.


hello

I suggest you a few steps to solve your problem.
  • remove the charger and press the power button till all residue power is radiated.
  • then connect the charger and charge the battery fully and try booting the system.
  • if this don't work check the output of your charger and see if it is working fine.
  • if it is working fine then remove the battery and connect the charger and try starting the system.
  • if it works then there are two things possible.
  1. battery gone.
  2. IC responsible for charging is gone.
i hope you can figure out the problem through this.

Thank you

My computer would not charge. I have an appple powerbook g4. I bought a new battery. I put the battery in. It charges. Now the computr tries to turn on it makes the start up noises but the screen is blank....


Hi, sorry to hear you are having problems,
Are you saying that your Mac was working fine with the dead battery but then when you put in the new battery, the Mac died?
Well, if that is the case it might be possible that the battery ran down to ZERO and the mac's internal battery also is dead so, it does not even know what hard drive to boot into...
So, with the Mac Shut Down, hit the power on button and then VERY QUICKLY, press the ( alt ) key and hold it until you see a blue screen with a Big right pointing blue arrow and a circular arrow.
You can let go of the key, and the mac is now looking for suitable startup volumes to boot from...
You should see your harddive appear after a minute or so... If it does not appear, then either your system is damaged or your disk is KAPUT...
How old is your Mac? It is very very common for PowerBook drives to die after 4 years without advanced warning... :(
Good luck

Benq 19" monitor not working every time when computer started


Check your connections and make sure they are tight, and there are no bent pins. If everything seems ok, you might want to try plugging this monitor into a different computer or plug a different
monitor into yours to determine whether it's the monitor, the video card, or maybe the driver (doubtful on this as you state it seems to be bad somethimes on boot).

Cant turn on


If you have the problem with no chime, no screen light up, and fans at max, it may be possible to fix it. It is often a design flaw in the soldering process.
Press firmly down on the left of the mouse pad when you press the power button (or try holding it in your left hand with your thumb by the touch mouse and fingers under the mac pressing firmly on the bottom) if it chimes. or even boots when this is done you can find a shop that does soldering(micro soldering) and have them fix the chip thats lose. Or for a quick fix try this site http://www.coreyarnold.org/ibook/ he shows the most common chip that comes lose.
All but 3 or 4 failed iBook's that had the fans start and nothing else, seem to have this problem(that I've seen) but Mac refuses to say it's a defect in all country's but Denmark (because a official study was done there that proved it was a manufacturers defect that each time you power on/off the iBook the solder gets a little looser.)

This is a very broad question so I'll cover as many answers as I can think of: 1) Force quit frozen applications (Apple-Option + Escape) 2) Force shut down (hold power button for 5 seconds until it turns off) 3) Force restart (Apple-Option + Power Button)

Try these in no particular order (except last 3) try command-option power this puts p-books to sleep (may trigger it to wake) (it could be asleep) Remove your battery and wait 5-10 mins then try to start up with battery in Remove your battery and wait 5-10 mins then try to start up with battery removed To zap PRAM On startup hold down the cmd, option, p and r buttons Hold till you hear boot up sound To zap NV RAM On startup hold down the cmd, option, n and v buttons Hold till you hear boot up sound To reset Power Manager On startup hold down the shift, fn, ctrl and power buttons Hold till you hear boot up sound To reset the screen on a powerbook: On startup hold down the r button - To force internal Hard drive to be startup disk On startup hold down the r button - until boot Disable extensions: Try power up-reboot with shift key down Last but not least try to startup with original MAC system startup CD If all else fails try to get to an Apple Store...unless it's a real hardware problem (fried circuits/damage they'll fix it for free!) Pray - believe it or not... it worked for me when I got down on my knees and prayed. Hope this helps also from Fixya By  horthette Rank: Master Rating: 74%, 10 votes Apple is advising all owners of MacBooks or MacBook Pros bought after February 2006 to download a software update that will help fix some battery issues. The update, available through Software Update in the Apple menu or here on Apple's site, was released to correct some battery performance problems, such as shorter than usual battery life or problems charging the battery, according to a Web page on the support section of Apple's site. But if that fix doesn't work, notebook users should contact Apple to have their battery replaced if they notice the following symptoms, cut and pasted from Apple's support document: * Battery is not recognized causing an "X" to appear in the battery icon in the Finder menu bar. * Battery will not charge when computer is plugged into AC power. * Battery exhibits low charge capacity/runtime when using a fully charged battery with a battery cycle count (as shown in System Profiler) of less than 300. * Battery pack is visibly deformed. Apple says these problems aren't safety issues, just performance-related, a relief for those who remember the massive battery recall of last summer. Apple had to recall 1.8 million batteries manufactured by Sony as part of a larger recall that affected just about everyone in the PC industry.
