Hmmm..interesting....you may need to download the system drivers, usually for bios or other utility programs. the compatibility issue with batteries, is based on the make/model being loaded into the listings from the sysadmin for your operating system.

Blue Screen of Death - How Do I Fix It


Those who are using Windows operating system are aware about the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) and may be they have faced it in their PCs. This is a common error which usually occurred when something wrong with PC in hardware and software. Sometime it occurred when some major problem has been created in PC but it also come when a minor corruption occurred in it. So, the most important thing to recover the desktop screen is to detect the problem.<br /><br />Blue Screen of Death has not proper technical guideline to solve but it has various way to resolve - depends upon condition or error. Sometime it automatically resolves by restarting the PC but sometime it take great effort and time to resolve. In short there is no simple answer of "how the blue screen of death can be resolved?"<br /><br />To get the desktop screen and resolve the BSOD, user has to recognize the error. This error detection can only be done manually because both parts - hardware and software, are checked one by one. At the blue screen the error is displayed but this display shows the error in computer codes which are not easy to understand by the user. But these codes help to diagnose the error. So, once you get the BSOD error write down it on a paper.<br /><br />Unfortunately, if you couldn't get success to resolve the BSOD by rebooting the machine, then you have to do some effort for resolving the problem. It is not easy to concise the instruction of all resolving method that's why there are some hints to resolve but if you cannot resolve the blue screen error through the following guideline, then write the error code on search engine and get method for resolving through Internet.<br /><br />The first method of diagnosis the problem is to check the windows at safe mode. If you couldn't get success to reach the desktop screen in safe mode that's means there must be a hardware problem. One of your computer physical devices has been corrupted or destroyed. To resolve the screen in this condition check your devices one by one in other PC.<br /><br />If you get desktop screen in safe mode, so you're PC has software or driver problem. Once you reach at the desktop screen, scan your PC through anti-virus immediately. The anti-virus will detect the software if there will be anything wrong. If anti-virus detects any software which is virus infected, uninstall and delete the software immediately from your computer, then re-install the windows because your PC have get the virus.<br /><br />Sometime both of the above method has been failed and computer reached at the desktop screen in safe mode and anti-virus also doesn't find any infected file. This is the condition of driver failure. You have to re-install the driver to resolve the blue screen of death.<br /><br />

I have a pavilion zd8000 and i get a wrong battery detected when i boot up with it in. if i boot with it out then put it in it sees it but wont charge it. it is an aftermarket battery because thats all...


There are a lot of different laptops in the HP Pavilion series. All of the batteries for each individual laptop are similar but not exactly the same. However in a few cases the batteries are. I think that this is the situation that you are in. If so, then there is nothing that you can do about it...you just have the wrong battery.
Another problem may be that there is just a faulty connection. However it is unlikely because you said that there is a screen that comes up stating that you have inserted the wrong battery.
Here are some batteries that I found that should be compatible with your laptop. You can compare prices accordingly...

Now speaking about the voltage problem...I don't know much about this subject so don't take my word for it, but I think that those two different voltages are for two different things. I do not thing that you can even buy a battery that has screwed up the voltages that badly. Even if you got the wrong battery for your laptop, the voltage should still be right. If the voltage is wrong, then I think that you would be having a lot more problems than you are now. So that being the source of your battery problems is unlikely.

Hi !

The battery is not compatible with your laptop or maybe defective. As you mention, you purchase this battery and I believe they will replace the battery. Just show them the problem and insist that the battery you purchase is not charging, sure they will replace it.

I hope this help you. Good luck.

Vaio wireless lan switch repeatedly restarts windows


Thats sounds like the wrong drivers for the network card. Some models can have different models or brands of cards so you can get the wrong one in there. You should be able to boot up in safe mode (F8) and then go under control panel - system- hardware manager-network adapters. Find the card that is causing the problems highlight and delete it. Then reboot. This takes the card out of the system and it will be detected as a new hardware next startup. Then try another driver.

You might want to go to the Sony website and check under support to see what other drivers you can get to try for your model. There might be 2-3 to try. Usually the oem disks are right but the replacements don't always get things right.

If this were hardware you shouldn't get the bluescreen of death (BSOD). That usually means software or drivers.
