What you would want to try is to remove the battery and see if pluging in the power cord will power the laptop alone. All laptops have this capability and this shouldnt be an issue.

But by testing this and seeing if it DOESN'T work then that means there could be one of two things. Your AC power adapter is defective and should be replaced with one that is compatible with your system or that your connection jack is either loose on the inside or broken completely.

However I would stick with trying the cord first before trying to resoder the joint inside the system. I'd leave that to a pro, going back to the battery if you leave it out for a day that should give it plenty of time to discharge any energy it may have in it and you can plug it back into the laptop to try and charge it again either with the same AC power adapter or a new one. If the battery wont hold a charge and you know it isn't because the jack is loose or the AC power adapter isnt defective then you now know you need to replace the battery. You can google compatible batteries and power adapters online or search specific places like Newegg.com or Amazon.

Hope this gives you a better understanding of what may need to be done to fix this!!

How would I now if the battery is bad


Hello rrodri4330,

Welcome, and thank you for using FixYa!

To answer your question: The laptop itself will tell you that the battery is bad.

In any version of Windows, when you look down near your clock, you should see the Charging Icon engage and display; once the power adapter is plugged in. While this icon is displayed, you should see the percentage number rise, as the battery charges. If the battery remains at a low percentage, and never rises, then the battery is bad. That will be proof of your need to replace it.

I included a link below, from eBay!, to where to can purchase a replacement, cheap.

One of my usb ports won't work properly. If you plug something to it for longer than half an hour the usb port stops recognizing the device you plugged. I have an hp dv7 4190us laptop.


Start with the normal fixing methods, including uninstalling the drivers for your devices and reinstalling them. if That didn't work! Next try System Restore thinking that maybe you have installed something and it caused a conflict with the USB system drivers. That didn't work!

go to Device Manager and uninstall all of the devices under USB Controllers. Restart the computer, reinstall the USB drivers,

You may also see in Device Manager that the device shows up as an "Unknown Devic

last fix for the problem? Well, apparently it's a super simple solution! No need to edit the registry, uninstall drivers, or anything of that sort.

Simply UNPLUG YOUR COMPUTER FROM THE POWER SUPPLY. Yes that's it! Note that this does not mean just turning off your computer because modern computers don't really turn off when you press the power button as the motherboard still gets power.

First to explain, the motherboard is where all of hardware of the computer is connected to, including the USB ports. Sometimes the motherboard needs to be "rebooted" also because something can go wrong, i.e. all your USB ports suddenly stop working. The small microprocessor on the motherboard will reload the drivers and your USB ports should be back to recognizing all devices!

So first turn off your computer using Shut Down or pressing the power button and then UNPLUG it from the wall outlet. Let it sit for about a minute and then plug it back in.

I have a HP Pavilion dv7-1232nr, the mute button and the wireless button on the top touch pad has quit working along with the volume slider. Any suggestions?


My mute button on my hp pavilion dv7-1262us stopped working after I updated my IDT High-Definition Audio CODEC through Microsoft update. The volume worked but the button stayed orange. I went to Device Manager- Sound,video and game controllers then IDT Audio CODEC. Click the Driver tab then click the Roll Back Driver button. This rolled the driver back to an older version but it fixed the problem. This is a Vista machine. Hope this helps.
