Sounds like you'll need to get in touch with gateway for warranty repairs/replacement, though, you may try to remove and reconnect the battery, check for BIOS updates from gateway that may include fixes on battery charging , and test if the battery will have same issue when connected to another system, if available. Try to also leave the netbook connected to the adapter/charger for a few hours while switched off as it can help the battery to charge faster.

    if this is the case, it would be best to get in touch with gateway while your system is still in warranty so you can get a replacement either for the battery, charger or motherboard if needed.

Forgot login pasword on gateway lt4010u


If this is a Windows password, then you can ask local laptop tech to erase the password. Usually it cost $25 - $50. If this is a BIOS password, then you need to contact laptop manufacturer.

I have a 1 month old samsung n148 netbook. I rarely use it with the battery, mostly connected to the cord. However, after some time, i charge the battery. when i try to open it with just the battery power,...


Your Netbook is still under warranty and I will not advice that you experriment or tamper to loose the free warranty claim on the PC. So what could be done is to discharge fully the battery and then try to charge fully , if this wont charge then the battery is a suspect and you must claim for replacement as it could have developed back EMF and so will not charge.

Brand new lt27 netbook will not take a charge. It is only one month old. What can I do ? 20 % batter left. Will not take a charge.


YOU WILL SURELY HAVE A WARRANTY AS ITS JUST A MONTH OLD NET BOOK. TAKE IT TO THE NEAREST SERVICE CENTER AND IF THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH THE BATTERY THEY WILL SURELY REPLACE IT FREE OF COST.
REGARDS.
PLZ. RATE THIS.

I have an acer aspire one .The problem is that it's battery dfoesn't get charged over 75% even after prolonged charging.


This shows that the battery is not healthy enough to accept 100% charge and is only healthy enough to accept 75%.

The solution is to claim warranty support on the basis of a faulty battery, if you have not had it long.
The alternative option is to purchase a replacement battery, you may even get one that holds more charge. A 6cell will enable you to use your laptop longer than that of a 3cell.

Thanking you

How to write an electricity bill in c program(9'th class)


#include <iostream.h>
#include <conio.h>
int main()
{
clrscr();
long int units,charge=0;
float total;
const int rent=25;
cout << "Enter the number of units used : ";
cin>>units;
if(units>200)
charge=(units-200)*20+150*40+50*60;
else if(units>50)
charge=(units-50)*40+50*60;
else
charge=units*60;
total=0.01*charge+rent;
cout << "You have used " << units << " units." << endl;
cout << "Your total telephone bill is $" << total;
getch();
return 0;


Please accept the solution. Thanks, Lucy
}
This program takes in the number of units used ('units') as a screen input from the user.
It then calculates the total telephone bill for the customer on the following basis :
A compulsory fee of $25, plus
60 cents per unit for the first 50 units,
40 cents per unit for the next 150 units,
20 cents per unit for anything above 200 units.
It then outputs the bill using the 'cout' command.

The battery only charges to 50%- down from 100 percent just a month ago.


If the laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, until they won't charge up at all. A new replacement battery will fix this problem.
