The problem might be with the static charges on the motherboard, LCD screen, RAM or with the Hard Disk. Try the followings.

1. Remove Static Charges:
1. Disconnect the AC Adapter.
2. Remove the Battery.
3. Hold the Power button down for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
4. Reconnect the AC adapter and do NOT connect the battery now.
5. Turn on the Notebook power.

Still same, remove and reseat the RAM and Hard Disk. Check the below link for service manual.

Refer to page 52 of 134 (Memory Module)
NOTE: If you have more than one memory module, you should test them individually to determine if one or both of them are faulty. Insert each module separately, then turn on the notebook to determine if the inserted module is working. Once you have determined which memory module is faulty, you can replace the faulty module and reseat the working module.
Refer to Page 49 of 134 (Hard Disk)

If still the same, you need to contact HP for hardware repair.

Make your Lithium Laptop Battery last longer.


Hello folks,

Although I usually offer advice on backing up files or recovering them, I have been asked a lot lately how my 3 year old laptop still runs 1:45mins on a standard battery when many peoples 1-2 year old laptops can barely last an hour.

Simply put, most people do one of two things wrong. Both are common misconceptions and easy to remedy. First I've heard countless people tell me they pop the battery out of their laptop and toss it in the desk drawer until needed, often months. Second I have been told by more people than I can count that they leave their laptop plugged in 24/7 for most of the year.

Bottom line, although popping it out and leaving it in the drawer is less harmful to it's lifespan, both ideas are wrong.

The shelf life of most unused lithium batteries is shorter when unused than ones being used properly. The lifespan of a battery that is constantly being trickle charged is even shorter.

Most batteries in modern laptops are 4-6 cells, designed to give about 2 hours of charge and should last 3-5 years with charge life starting to degrade in the third year.

A "stored battery" has only 3 years of shelf life due to extended times sitting discharged and one that is trickle charged 24/7 may burn out in as little as a year.

Many laptop manufacturers have taken measures to improve this but ultimately the best thing for your battery is to use it. If you currently run you laptop plugged in 24/7, unplug it every night after you shut it off, then when you start it in the morning, let it run an hour before plugging it back in. This will give the battery both down time and exercise.

If your battery is in a drawer somewhere for safe keeping, put it back in the laptop, run it down then charge it over night and run it down then recharge it one more time. Store it back in the drawer charged and repeat the cycle at least once a month.

These tips will help drastically improve you batteries performance over time. My 3 year old laptop only ever got 2 hours of battery life and still gets 1:45 with no power saving measures, give it a try.

I have a waterpik ultra cordless dental water jet that is 15 months old and will not hold a charge.


Contact the manufacturer for a replacement product, if it is not holding a charge the battery is dead. which is a defect in the product. Nothing else you can do.

Only 2 months old Samsung RV511 97% available (plugged in, not charging) uninstalled Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery then reinstalled but wont charge? Only 2 months old


ACPI control really has nothing to do with the underlying hardware. If the laptop is not charging or if it's not running off the battery, then you should take it in for warranty service - or have the manufacturer send you a replacement battery first, and see if that resolves the problem.

I have a new DSI XL that my grandchild has been using for about 2 months. All of a sudden, the battery will not hold a charge or at least that's what I think. We put it on charge one night and the next...


It certainly sounds like the battery. However, if the DS is only 2 months old, your best bet would be to call nintendo; the item is likely still covered by the warranty. Dont' fix it yourself. Attempting to do so will void the warranty

Acer Aspire 7741Z - 4643 that is only 2 month old. It is plugged in, and recognizes that it is plugged in, but does NOT charge the battery. Please let me know what to do. Thanks, Not charging


Hi,

Im very sorry to hear that, please follow these simple steps for you to be able to isolate the exact problem.

1. Removed the battery.
2. Connect the laptop directly to the power outlet without using the battery just for the meantime.
3. Turn on the laptop. If the laptop is able to power on, that means that the AC adapter is working fine as well as the DC port. If the laptop is not able to turn on, it maybe the AC adapter itself or the DC port.
4. Try to use another AC adapter if possible, make sure that that AC adapter is working fine. If the laptop is still not turning on, the problem is with the DC port itself. In that case, you will need to replaced the Motherboard itself.

Hope this will help...Your response is very much appreciated...
