Hi good day. I have a msi u100 laptop. Xp os. My problem is that it only charge up to 96% and after that the battery indicator flashes orange. Then sometime it shut down as if it was un plug to power...

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, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.

Hy... I have an HP Pavilion dv7-2155eg and the notebook expansion base HP xb3000! - But my base doesn't light up the power display and sound display at the bottom. The power button works; but the...

you left out 2 facts when DID it last work ok on this LT.
never, last year , 2008 or what, my guess NEVER !
no OS stated, W7? what? and MUST MATCH !!! drivers !!!
facts the product is 100% dead now at HP, no support at all . period
they will just quip "legacy" sorry..

you have the wrong dock.
here is the old data sheet it tell you only these PC work
is compatible
and Compaq Presario

this is what you have.

shows xp last supported OS back then then.2008

more lots more, you can search at HP all day but
and why you think your PC runs on this X

the last post at HP said
HP 15-r264dx does not have docking port, you have to use USB "dock" such as HP USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 docking stations.

and last here is your correct docking station (you never asked first)

KN745AA - HP Notebook QuickDock

so let me guess the real story
i found this docking station at a garage sale for $5
what does it FIT
answer, see link 2 above , PDF for the data sheet,

ever like just google ?
here is 1 hit, found the service guide. 2006(11 years old)

page 6 shows it dont work on your PC.
so that 2 books that said that.
if does not mention OS, but 2006 we know is XP , never run XP ever.
there are rumors of hacks that can make it work but only no details.
for sure it must be a hardware match.
then you need drivers to run it, but if your OS is not XP
finding them now is very very hard.
only google can find them and I see ZERO

I have a ce-100 futura sewing machine that will not work with windows 7 what do i need to do to fix this problem

The Futura software and the machine drivers exist for Windows 98, NT, 2000, ME, or XP. If you have Win7 32-bit, you may be able to run in the compatibility mode. Load the CD into the optical drive, then right click on the .exe file on the CD. Then choose Properties. Select the Compatibility tab and check Run this program in the compatibility mode. Click Apply and OK. Then right click again and choose Run as Administrator. This isn't guaranteed to work since the changes in the OS are significant.

To check if you have Win7 32-bit or the 64-bit version, click Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System. The title will say Windows 7 (Version) for a 32-bit OS. It will read Windows 7 (Version) x64 for the 64-bit version of the OS.

If you have the 64-bit OS or the compatibility mode doesn't work, you need a computer running an older version of Windows. This can be a second computer, a dual-boot computer (where you select your OS at startup) or a virtual computer (that runs inside the real computer). If you have Win7 Pro or Ultimate or upgrade to one of those versions, you can create a virtual XP computer for free. Download and install Virtual PC and XP mode from Microsoft. Install them in order. Then install the XP software from the above site in the virtual computer and it will work. (Other virtual computer programs are Parallels and VMWare.) All of the other options will require a licensed version of the older Windows OS.

I hope this helps.

(The last person I dealt with with the issue of an embroidery machine not talking to Windows 7 kept their old Windows XP computer just to work with the sewing machine. Fortunately the old computer was still working enough to use for the purpose.)
