HP lap top Charger light blinks six times?


if it's a new laptop it could indicate that the battery needs to charge for 30 minutes before use. if it's not a new laptop it could mean that the bios configuration is corrupt. if that's the case go to the hp support website and download the latest bios update and reflash your bios.

Some time ago, after installing Windows 7, my Dell 1525 started changing internal clock as it wants: yesterday there was 2010, today is 2021... But it wouldn't be a serious problem if the laptop worked...


Go to http://support.dell.com and download the latest BIOS update for your system.

Please remember NOT to power down your system when flashing the BIOS.

Reset your system time inside windows and see if system time won't change by it's own. If time is stable, then you fixed it. If system time changed again, the you have to other choice but to replace the CMOS battery.

Sony vaio vgn-fs775p laptop real time clock not keeping time


Hi

thank you for your query

If the time is not keeping up then it would seem that you will need to change your CMOS battery, this is a small battery found on the motherboard responsible for clocking etc

The battery is cheap to purchase, however I do highly recommned the laptop be booked into a reputable PC shop for replacement as you will need to take the whole laptop apart to get the motherboard

I hope this has been helpful

When I unplug power supply I get blue screen and it reboots. This is with a new fully charged battery in.


Hi,

Thats a surge thats happening. The comutper will restart for data prevention purposes.

What i suggest you do is vist the HP Support website and select Drivers and Downloads. Input your model number and download the latest BIOS update. install the BIOS update and this should resolve the blue screen issue.

Laptop screen


Hi,

When you see your screen pixelized, it may be a hardware issue, but before concluding it as a hardware related, I request you to try downloading and installing the latest video driver software and if you wish you can even update your computer with latest BIOS update from the concerned website.

After installation, please restart the computer as the changes made will be updated once you restart the computer.

If the issue persists even after installation of BIOS update and Display driver software for your computer, now it can be concluded that the issue is hardware related and your screen has to be replaced with a new one.

Thanks,
Sharath

Wrong battery detected.


hmmm..interesting....you may need to download the system drivers, usually for bios or other utility programs. the compatibility issue with batteries, is based on the make/model being loaded into the listings from the sysadmin for your operating system.
