Gps shuts off regularly


From what I've experienced, repeated restarting, and frequent shut downs, can be traced back to a defective power cord, and/or a low battery state. Garmins operate best with a full battery charge, regardless their connection to external power.
If you can get it to connect to your computer, and can see it as a device with removable storage, right clicking on it's icon, and select "properties" to show you the battery-charge state detected.
Mine won't charge when connected to the computer for some reason, and won't boot even if left for a few hours, but if I connect it to a dedicated usb charger, (the kind that plugs into an A/C outlet with a USB port) it will begin to charge. After fully charging it returns to normal operational state. If it still can't charge it may need a new battery...

Can i place new cells in my hp omnibook4100 laptop


If you have Power Cells attached now, simply disconnect them from the bottom of the computer case and replace it with the same type. Remember to set the Battery memory by doing a 24 hour charge when new, then run the computer until it is fully discharge and the computer shuts down. Do another over night charge and the power cells obtain a memory for long lasting use.

Power schemes battery


Chances are that your battery doesn't / wouldn't hold a charge anymore. The laptop runs off battery power. When it is plugged in, the AC power "goes right through the battery", to support the laptop's operations. When the power cord is unplugged, and the battery doesn't hold a charge, the laptop will shut down, as your battery is (too) low to continue supporting the laptop's operations.

The easiest way around this problem is to get a new battery for the laptop.
If your battery is (quite) new (and a Lithium battery), you may wish to see if you can "revive" the battery's "life" ... first by depleting the battery (completely), then charging it (until it shows it is full, plus a couple more hours), and repeating this process a few times. If you're lucky, the battery will slowly/gradually start to hold some charge, but, don't expect it to be very long.
The (preferred) way to use re-chargeable batteries is to charge it fully, unplug it from the external power source, use it until it is depleted, then plug in the external power source to charge it up (fully) again .... and NOT to keep it on a power source all the time.

Lenovo g550 turns off when power supply is disconnected ,battery shows fully charged


Replace the battery, it's faulty.

Batteries only have a useful life, then they have to be replaced. Sounds like yours is doing like the ink cartridges, where they register as being full of ink when actually there is no ink in the cartridge.

New battery HP g61 is fully charged but not working \


Maybe the AC Adapter Power Cord is not working. If you can't get on the laptop with the power cord then it is bad and the battery might be drained so you have no power source to power up the laptop.
If the laptop works only off the Power Cord and the batteryis not charging, then the battery is dead.

To check to make sure the Power Cord is working remove the battery and let thelatop run for 10 minutes or so.

To check to see if the battery has any charge left in it put the battery in andremove the power cord. If it won't boot or shuts down then the battery is deadand needs to be replaced if the power cord is ok.

Computer was on AC power. Left unattended it shut down. Would not wakeup. Shut down fully, it would not come back up. Get a 2 short beep code. Invites an F1 to go to setup. Won't go to setup. Screen then...


Can you tell if your AC power cord is working? (Is there a light on the computer that comes on when it's charging?) If the power pack went dead, your battery could've died and now you get no power to the PC which is why it won't boot up.

To test, take out the battery and plug the AC cord in and try to boot up. If nothing at all happens without the battery, then your power cord or power pack is dead, and you just need to replace it.
