Charging lap top battery

My lap top is approx. 4/5 years old, it has two batteries, I tried charging the one that was in it when my daughter-in-law gave it to me, when I unpluged it from the ac after about 24 hours (she had not used this for a year or so) it would not come on after unplugging it from the ac, so I assumed it is a dead battery, the unit came with two batteries, my question is: do I just put the battery in leave it plugged into the ac and turn the machine off and the battery will charge (providing it is good) or is there some other procedure I must do to get it to charge, I haven't tried the second one yet, but wanted to know if there is a button I push or just shut it down with it plugged into ac, thank you

As soon as the AC is plugged in, the battery will start to charge. The battery light located somewhere on the laptop should indicate you that it is charging. It does not matter if the laptop is turned on or off.

What you explain here about the first battery is very common for a 4-5 y.o. laptop. The longevity of the battery mainly depends on the number of charging/discharging cycles it encountered. If the second battery you want to try spent more time in a carrying case than in the laptop, it may still be usable. But do not expect to go over 1 hour of autonomy with it.

I am new here and the one who knows any passwords and such is not here to say when in use of a wireless lap top how to get new or reset password of security key is what I am looking for.please help


You only have two choices here. First: wait for that person to give you password second: reset the wireless router to its manufacture setting. Be careful with it, if you are the owner or get approval from owner before proceeding. This is just for your information only. Do it at your own risk.

Illegal Tampering w/ my PC causing major legal problems


First of all, that 192.xxx.xx.x address is a LAN address, not Internet domain. The others can be resolved just by going to the url or doing an 'arp' query. All computer storage is retrievable if you have an undelete utility -for example, Windows just changes the first digit of each memory address from a 'one' to a 'zero' or vice-versa, leaving the remaining keystrokes unchanged until they are overwritten. Sophicated erase programs literally write all zeros at every memory location which can take a really long time. Servers retain emails and attachments for years so you can retrieve stuff from even a closed account from your isp if you remember the old passwords.   Computer forensics is the name of that game. I don't do that but there are modern sleuths like your basic private investigators that make their living digging through cyber-trash. Sorry you have this going down in your life. Court orders work both ways so for legal help go to www.findlaw.com and ask a lawyer. It's like a FixYa site for litigants. best wishes, Steve Medley
