The life of a battery is largely determined by the number of times it is charged. After hundreds of charge and discharge cycles, batteries lose some charge capacity, or battery health. To check the battery health, press and hold the status button on the battery charge gauge for at least 3 seconds. If no lights appear, the battery is in good condition, and more than 80 percent of its original charge capacity remains. Each light represents incremental degradation. If five lights appear you should consider replacing the battery.
I hope this helps and good luck!

Forgot pasword with into bios to try changing it and know I am completly lock out of my laptop

how to remove Bios password
the easiest way of removing that password is removing the watch battery inside the computer.
remove the computer battery and charger
go ahead and remove the covers from the bottom of the laptop.
you should be able to see a tiny battery hidden somewhere underneat those covers.
go ahead and remove it, wait for about 20 seconds and re insert it I recomend most people to go ahead and get a new battery at this moment (now that is open) and replace it.
after that go ahead and place covers back, battery and turn computer on you are going to have to set the time and date again on the BIoS and windows.
that takes care of the BIoS password.

if it works for you don forget to rate me

Ignition problem with 95 carmy

Seems to be a problem with the solenoid on the starter. After the engine starts, and you let the key go to the "run" position, the solenoid is supposed to disengage. If it stays engaged, it keeps the battery to starter contacts engaged. You have to remove the starter to get to the solenoid -- usually it is best to replace both the starter and the solenoid as a unit.

Turns Off by itself

Causes for this problem can be any of the following:
1- CPU gets overheated. solution: clean dust from fan and heatsink assembly and donot forget to replace the heatsink compound, this is very important.
2- Memory problems. solution: use a program called MEMTEST86+ from the site . It is a free and great program.
3-Power problem. By time the capacitors of the power supply gets dried. Causing them to not be able to fulfill power demands. solution: try working with power supply without battery. As the power supply has to run computer and charge battery. We reduce the load. If everything is fine. repair power supply by replacing deffective capacitor.
4-Battery problem. Try operation without battery.
5-Dried solders on motherboard or a component problem on the motherboard. Solution: no solution except replacing motherboard.
