LG M1 Express Dual Laptop

Two questions:

1. The CD/DVD unit doesn't stay closed. How can I get it fixed?

2. The laptop doesn't work for long if unconected to the main power supply. Is it something to do with the battery miser setting, or some other issue?

  1. Does it go back in and then pop back out as if you pressed the button, or is there something mechanically wrong that prevents you from pushing the drive in?
  2. Laptop batteries are notorious for losing capacity over time. Sometimes this can be due to the battery "memory" getting uncalibrated. Run the laptop on battery power until you drain it as far as it will go (save your work.) Then leave it off as you power it all the way to full charge. Turn the machine on without the power cord and once again run the battery all the way down. Several cycles of draining and charging the battery can help reset the battery. If it's just a dying battery then you may just need to get a replacement. Here are a few tips for reducing battery drain when on the go:

  • Decrease screen brightness: most laptops will have a function key (Fn+Up and Fn+Down are common keys, but find the ones with a sun icon on them) that will let you darken the screen. This will improve the battery life as less power is required for your backlight.
  • Defragment your Hard Drive: if you defrag your drive then the "arm" in it will have less distance to travel between sectors on the disk, thus saving some battery.
  • Use Power Profiles: in Control Panel you can change your laptop's power settings. If you set the profile to Portable or Max Battery most laptop motherboard's will actually under-clock the processor which will reduce the power-drain and the heat. Lower heat is explained below:
  • Improve Heat Dispersion: the hotter your laptop gets the harder the fans need to spin to compensate and disperse the heat. Keeping your laptop dust free and with unobstructed air in/out vents will save a lot of battery. Use a small pin to keep your fan from spinning (or else you will wear out the ball bearing) and shoot small bursts of compressed air into the in and out air vents. If you haven't done it in a while (or ever) then dust will probably go everywhere, so do it outside or in a well-ventilated area.
  • Remove Disks: the less time your computer is physically moving something the better. Windows will sometimes spin up a disk and scan its contents, so if there is no disk you avoid this power-draining "feature"

LG E50 display problems

This is related to heat problem, resulting of bad manufacture of the motherboard. It hapens with some model of motherboard. I\'ve fixed some. You have to open the laptop case and find the GPU and CPU chips (See the manual or google for the manual of you board to locate them). Then see were the thermall mass is and wipe ip clean and replace it with fresh one. Clean the fans of all dust and mount everything again. That should do it.

I have purchase lenovo Y410 but DVD drive not working since 8 days . Kindly suggest how to resovle this issue Thanks Dinesh

I would 'slap' Windows around, and make it reinstall the drivers for the DVD optical drive.


[Note* All clicks are Left-click unless otherwise noted]

1) Click on Start (Windows logo button)

2) Click on Control Panel

3) Click on Device Manager

4) After Device Manager loads all the way, click on the + sign to the left of -
DVD/CD-ROM drives

5) Right-click on the name of the DVD optical drive

6) Click on Uninstall

Windows will come up with a 'squawk box',
"Warning you are about to uninstall this device"

It's okay, click on OK.

Now close all windows, and go back to the desktop screen.
Restart the computer.

When Windows has fully loaded you should get a pop-up out of the system tray,
"Found new hardware device", and perhaps another one will follow,
"Found XXXX optical drive"
(XXXX being the name of the optical drive)

If this doesn't work try cleaning the laser optical eye of the DVD optical drive.

Laptop on open the DVD optical drive tray.
Turn the laptop off.
Remove ALL power to the laptop.
(AC adapter {Charger} and Battery)
Use a can of compressed air for computers.

Or use a disk cleaning device for cleaning CD/DVD optical drives. (Power plugged into the laptop)

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

My laptop is LG X-NOTE e500 G.A2H2A2 .Present operating system is Window vista i want to load operating system xp service pack 2.plzzzzzzzzz suggest

You need to have a Windows XP SP2 bootable disc. Just go to BIOS and enable the boot from CD/DVD Insert the Windows XP disc It will boot with the bootable disc and you just need to follow the on screen instructions. You will need to format the HDD and do a clean installation which will result in data loss. Please make sure that you take a backup of all your important data files before changing the operating system.
For any further assistance please feel free to revert with comments.
