    ensure the battery holds power before you put it in the board,



    is the cmos holding info ,

    ie do you need to :



    1) go into the bios every time you boot up, or

    2) do you need to set the time & date on boot up



    if you donot the battery is holding some charge

    you may be able to go into the bios and turn off the battery warning, but i am not sure about that.

    failing that ,if the batteries you have used are good then maybe a Bios update will fix the problem

    good luck with that

When starting up I keep getting a black computer screen with blinking cursor


That blinking cursor is the way in which the BIOS is telling you that Windows is missing - its most critical, core files have been corrupted beyond repair. The only thing you can do is to reinstall using the recovery cd.

Dell 8400 No Boot, not even POST


It sounds like your bios were improperly flashed or went bad. The X300 SE message is your video card. So your video card works, the system mostly works, but the BIOS isn't starting up. You should contact Dell and tell them the situation.

Laptop compaq presario f500,running vista.Wireless is not working,Windows cannot load the drivers required for this device. (Code 31)

I experienced this problem last night, and seemed to have fixed it this morning.

SYMPTOMS: HP Pavilion dv9000, Win Vista x64 Ultimate. Running on battery, battery level became critical; windows went into 'Hibernate' mode. Upon plugging in to mains power, and resuming the Windows session, the Wireless is still disabled, no matter what position the switch is in.


POSSIBLE CAUSE: Critical battery switches off the wireless network card to preserve power. Motherboard seems to log this status but when re-connecting to mains power the card does not receive power again. Uninstalling the driver and getting Windows to re-install automatically upon re-boot does not work.


SOLUTION: Charge up the battery whilst the computer is running. You can charge it to a substantial level, say, above 25%. Disconnect mains power so that your laptop is running on battery only. Set your wireless switch to OFF (this is usually to the left position, away from the orange indicator). Now run your computer down to the critical battery level again (perhaps overnight). In the morning when you press the power button, the 'CHARGE' indicator (looks like a lightning bolt) on the front of the laptop should flash quickly, indicating that there is no charge in the battery. Remove the battery from the laptop's underside. Wait a couple of seconds, then press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. Keeping the battery off the laptop, reconnect mains power. Boot up your PC. When at the Windows desktop and all your startup programs have finished loading, switch your wireless on (to the right position). You should now have a blue light, and wireless should once again be working. You can now re-insert your battery. You might have to setup your wireless network connection again as mine seemed to be 'lost', but at least hopefully the main problem is now fixed.

How to I change the battery on my acer aspireL100


First, ensure that your power adaptor is consistantly powering your system and watch for intermittant operation with the adaptors green light. (This rules out cord breaks for shorts)

Second, all laptops have a removable battery: You can find a replacement at http://www.kahlon.com/batteries.asp

Laptop batteires serve to power your CMOS (Carbon Metal Oxide Semiconductor) on your laptop, and keeps your internal BIOS clock accurate. On Desktops, it's a lithium battery on the mainboard.

Also, check to ensure that you do not have a battery recall on the unit as well, as you may be able to get a free replacement.

If your clock is off by a few minutes, change time servers in the windows clock option. Just double click the time on the task bar, click internet time, and you can this one if you don't have it listed: nist.expertsmi.com Some are overloaded due to requests. That should keep you with arc seconds on the actual usno time clock.

Good luck.

Good luck.

I have an acer aspire 6920 and my computer will not start up wen i start it it goes in to the start up repair and then tells me that i have recently attached a device to this computer like a camera or mp3...


it's a driver update possibly from windows that is corrupt, when it's booting up keep pressing F8 and then choose safe mode, when the system loads, choose the administrator account and then do a system restore in acceseries, system tools, and choose a date to before the problem started, then restart the pc for a normal boot up.
