If you are using the battery instead of mains, you need to replace your battery. If you are using it on the mains and it's shutting down, it's over heating and you will need to replace the heatsink or the systemboard. if you have some diagnostic software, run that which will tell you what's wrong with it.

My computer suddenly quit working. The power just went off


The most common reasons for that are

1. power adaptor or battery isn't working - power problem. Some laptops require the battery to be in the machine even when it's running of the adaptor. If it runs out of 'juice' it will just go off suddenly.

2. overheating - It can get full of dust and dander and overheat the cpu which will also cause the machine to go off suddenly. It shuts off to protect the cpu from burning up. Sometimes if they get hot enough it can still take out the cpu... If the cpu fan stops working it will also overheat.

3. Control Panel - Power settings - check to see if there's a timer set to turn it off after so long etc.

Hey..i have a hp probook 4420s. its mouse pad ain't working due to which i have to use an external mouse. please tell me how to fix this problem.


First, make sure your trackpad button is enabled... if that isn't the problem, then go to your device manager and check that there isn't a driver issue, if there is you'll see a little yellow triangle next to the category "Mice and other pointing devices".
If there is an issue, highlight your touchpad, then right click and choose "Uninstall Driver".

After the driver is uninstalled, go to your start menu and shut down the computer, then restart it and the new driver should automatically reload into the system.

If its not a driver issue, then its the touchpad itself and you'll have to contact a technician for repair/replacement.

The charger is plug in and the battery is charging so in my acer 4736 , the blue red is on as the laptop is opwer on and another light is red as the battery is charging , when battery is fulling charged...


try cycling your battery it should be done to lithium ion every couple of months. Run your computer until it shuts down from low battery. Then leave it unplugged for at least 5 hours to make sure all residual power is gone. Then fully charge the battery, this will help fix battery health issues.

Acer Aspire 5742, Completely Shuts off, error free, randomly.


If your computer is shutting off randomly, there could be a multitude of issues. Most of the issues are hardware related.

1. If you're able to use your computer for a little while, and it randomly shuts off, it could be one of a few things.

a. Overheating processor: You may need to replace your processor, or clean out the inside of the computer.
b. Fans not working: Your fans could be disabled, and keeping the computer from receiving cooling which can overheat the processor as well as other vital components.
c. Dying battery: The battery in your laptop may be going bad, and could need replacement. Does it charge completely, or does it only fill up partially after a long period of charging? If it's the latter, you will need to replace it.
d. Dying hard drive: While this one isn't as likely, and usually doesn't cause the computer to shut off instantly, it's still something to consider.

2: If your computer shuts off before the desktop even loads, it's most likely a hardware problem.

a. Dying battery: Again, your battery may be dying, try removing it and keeping the laptop plugged in when you turn it on.
b. Broken hard drive: Your hard drive may be broken, try finding an external hard drive with Linux or another operating system installed on it, and go into the BIOS when your computer first starts up. Find the "Boot devices" option, and tell it to make the primary boot device the external device with the operating system installed on it. If the computer starts up fine after that, you may need to re-install your old operating system, or replace your hard drive.

Hi!
My suggestion is to simply restore the computer back in time when the issue isn't yet happened. It can be achieved by doing a system restore. Please go to Start>All programs>Accessories>System tools>System Restore. Then please select a date when the issue isn't yet present.

Hope this work and thanks for reading my suggestion.

Says plugged in not charging


Take out the battery and make sure you can turn on the laptop with just the AC Adaptor hooked up.

If you can then you know the AC Adaptor is good. Try another known good working battery in the laptop, if the battery charges then you know that the old battery is bad.

If the laptop doesn't charge with a know working battery or a new one then you know that the motherboard is bad.

Are you trying to access the Bios set up? I own the IBM ThinkPad 380Z, 13" full Screen, 233MHz Pentium II model. If you power on the machine and just hold down the Q button it will then take you to easy set up. If you have Windows on it just wait to the IBM logo screen clears and press and hold F8 and that will bring you to Windows setup.

Problems with wireless and MS Vista


Try these first:

change channels to 1-6-or 11. Make sure you change all of your wireless computers4.gif.


check is to make sure you are NOT using "IEEE 802.1x authentication for this network."

You can find at setting under "Wireless Network Connection Properties" and then under "Authentication" tab of your network properties.

This particular authentication method is periodically logging you off the network and re-authenticating.

Check the adapter in device manager to make sure that windows is not shutting the adapter down to save power.

Cordless phones1.gif and wireless ethernet cards use overlapping frequencies.As a test, you can unplug the AC cords from all the cordless phones in the area and see if it helps.
