Hi, as long as all the air vents are free from fluff and dust it wont over heat or anything like that, if you switch the laptop off but leave it plugged in then all this will do is waste your electric but it wont do any harm at all to the laptop.

How ever one thing to remember is if your not using your laptop only on the battery and you only use it when its plugged into the mains then its a good idea to remove the battery and store it somewhere safe, i say this because with it being used on the mains with the battery is what this does is causes the life of the battery to drop so say you was getting 5 hours on the battery after say 6 months you would only get 1 hour from a full charge, so if you dont use the laptop often on the battery only then just remove the battery and just use the laptop whilst its plugged in.

this wont do any harm to the laptop and it stops the battery failing so take the battery out and just run it off the mains.

apart from that as long as all the air vents are cleaned regular and checked for fluff build up then you should find you will have no problems.

the only thing that will happen is that the power pack may get hot, but they get hot during use so as long as the power pack is not on plastic or something flammable like wooly jumper their will be no problems.

I hope that has eased your mind a bit and give you some idea of the kind of things you can do to save the life of the battery.

Most people in offices remove their battery when running on the mains due to the fact that the battery will get hot whilst its being used on the mains so removing the battery stops it over heating and slowing the laptop down.

    Hi, this is a very common problem with all laptops, the problem you are having is with the battery if you have been using the battery often then charging it up a lot then this reduces the life of the battery by loads due to the fact that the battery is sort of emergency power for the laptop, as your switches off this would indicate the cells in the battery can no longer hold the charge and this is why it is cutting off.

    replacing the battery would solve your problem but make sure you buy a branded one as the cheaper ones will only last weeks so buy a branded battery then only use the battery when you need to and take the battery out when your using it on the mains this is the only way of making the battery last longer, when the laptop is plugged in with the battery in it is taking power out of the battery all the time as well as charging it up, this does the battery no good as it causes the battery to always be hot and this is what damages the cells in the battery.

    So its best you only have the battery in the laptop when it needs charging and when your running it off the battery so once the battery is fully charged remove it until you need to use the laptop on the battery doing this prevents over heating and reduces the chance of bad cells in the battery.

    Now your battery is no good take it out and leave it out as it will be over heating and this will slow your laptop down so remove the battery until you get a new one and when you do get a new one only use it when you need to, this will keep the battery lasting a lot longer and it will run the laptop a lot longer.

Nothing bad should happen. However, overcharging the battery can reduce the life of it.

hope this helps.

Picture goes off


A temporary solution is to unplug the TV for a few minutes, remove static from the glass with your hand. It is important to unplug rather than turn off. If you have a degauss button you can also press that before unplugging. Wait several minutes or an hour. Then plug it back in. If you have Picture in Picture it may be an issue with that and to permanently solve may need a repair person. The unplugging may get you by for a few days at a time. That's at least better than an hour.

Water damage


Unplug it, take the battery out and turn it on its side, like an open book and resist touching it for 2 days. If it happens to come up after, get a latex keyboard condom and count your blessings, if not, hit me back.

Wii console will not come on


First things first. We'll start from the beginning. Unplug the AC Adapter from the wall and from the Wii. Let it sit for 15 minutes. Then plug it back in. 9 times out of 10 your power supply needs to be reset. The only way to reset it is to unplug it from the wall and the wii and let it sit for 15 min. Try this first and report back if it worked. Even if you think you have done this already do it again.

Try this:

With the AC adapter and battery installed and it will not power up remove the adapter and the battery. Then plug in the
AC adapter after both have been removed for 30 seconds and let the laptop set for 30 seconds and then unplug the AC adapter and then slide in the batter within 15 seconds and try to start the laptop.
