Reset bios password elitebook 2740


The best way to reset the BIOS back to the defaults (if there isnt a setting to install the defaults), is to remove the BIOS battery for 15mins. This will drain the charge from the BIOS, insert the battery and then go to the BIOS setting to set the Date and Time.

My battery was was not charged for 2 days over the weekend and now it won't run on batteries. I need to have it on AC power every time I use it.


Hello,
Laptop batteries can become unchangeable if they are completely discharged, and left that way for too long. This happened to my Asus. IF you leave it charging over night and it still doesn't work you will need a new battery. If you contact the manufacture they will probably charge you over $100 for a new battery. If you use eBay, the average price is $32.

Goes from full battery to no power when speaking, power lasts approx 15mins !


Hi, when a phone battery is fully charged and it does not stay long to power the phone,You might need to replace the phone battery.

Phone batteries has cells inside them that determines how long the battery life will last..When these cell dies, it will be unable to power up the phone for too long and the phone will go off..

To solve the problem of charging a battery and not lasting too long,you will need to replace the phone battery with a new one.

You can get a replacement battery from nearest outlet store around your area...


Warning before you buy a new battery, make sure that the phone does not get hot when you insert the battery inside the phone...Because that is not a battery fault. It's a phone board problem.

Take care and thanks for using fixya...

18 volt trimmer is new, first time I charged battery over 10 hours it only ran for about 15 mins. charged again until green light, over 3hours used about 3 times , start with full charge, only lasts...


This could be the life of the battery as there is another question along much the same lines. I suggest that you take it back to the dealer and discuss it with him and take it from there. Take into account that any attempt to fix or adjust any part of the machine will void your warranty.

How many hours we should charge the battery fist time Nokia-2700


There are basically 3 types of chemicals currently being used for cell phone and laptop batteries. Ni-cad, Ni-mh and Li-ion. There is a fourth makineg its way in Li-ion polymer. A couple things are consistent for all types of batteries no matter what chemical is inside. You must initially give the battery a 12-14 hour charge on the home charger. (Don't use a cigarette adapter for the first charge. This conditions the battery and don't take it off the charger that first time even if the charging indicator says it's full after 3 hours. Also the manufacturer's also state to run it thru 3 charge cycles. What that mean's is that you fully charge and fully drain 3 times. 1 full charge + 1 full drain = 1 charge cycle. Here's where the way you charge the battery starts to differ.

Ni-cad: Mostly only on older devices, has a "memory" effect, should be drained before a full charge is put on it, should be removed after overnight charge or can be overcharged and burnt out.

Ni-mh: Still used for some devices, has slight memory effect but not enough to have to fully drain before the recharge, should not be consistently left on charger after full charge that can eventually burn out battery and shorten usage time.

Li-ion and Li-ion polymer: Used on a lot of newer devices, has no "memory" effect, should be recharged as often as possible, actually likes to be charged and draining it regularly can cause the usage time to be shortened, can NEVER be overcharged so whenever you're near a charger put it on there. Besides those benefits a li-ion battery is lighter and smaller but the chemical can hold more charge than Ni-cad and Ni-mh.

So the one reply to your question said to error on the side of draining the li-ion batteries. This is incorrect information. You want to charge the battery before it gets below a 20% charge. Also batteries will not go bad from accidentally doing the incorrect charging procedure here and there but normally follow the correct procedure. One last note try to use the home charger more often than the cigarette lighter charger for best long term results. Cigarette lighter chargers do not give a full charge (about 95%) which in the long run can damage any type of battery listed.

Not charging when it says charging


I was going to suggest a recalibrate might do this

with some machines run the battery to flat then fully charge at full charge shutdown and reboot windows.

With some machines the same thing is done as follows:
Enter the bios and disable the automatic shutdown for low battery. Disable the automatic shutdown for low battery in Windows. Run the laptop until it just dies from the battery going dead.
Charge the battery. Re-enable the automatic shutdowns.


And I believe some even have options in the Bios to recalibrate.

If this doesnt work then could be a voltage issue in the charger (is it universal with voltage settings?)
if it is this and no settings that could have been moved to wrong voltage etc, then maybe need testing and replacing.

Hope this helps

Seems to be electrical problem


What initiated the need for jump starting? Is the alternator charging? Has the battery been checked?

To check the alternator, once the engine has been jumped and is running, remove one of the battery post connections. If the engine dies, the alternator is not charging the battery, and the symptoms you describe are the on-board computer going through low voltage spasms until sufficient electrical power to operate the engine / tranny is drained and the car dies.

If the car continues to run with no battery attached, the alternator is charging - - - and I would recommend removing the battery and having it checked and (if good) recharged to full capacity. I would also recommend having it charged even if the alternator is the problem just to delay the onset of the low voltage problems. The car should operate normally for a few miles before the battery drains too low after a full recharge, enabling you to get it to a shop for alternator service / replacement.

If you attempt replacing the alternator yourself, make sure the battery is disconnected prior to starting the job. Saves blowing up good stuff by accidental short.

Hope this helps and good luck!
