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.

Hi this is NEOH. I have a MSI laptop model A6200, my battery doesn't charge at all. I have tried the method from online (the one with numerous steps of unplug power, removal and put back the battery...


The system(OS eg.xp,win7,vista) still remember last battery condition >>> you need to calibrate the battery in order to fresh up the memory in the system.
you can try enter bios setup on your first boot. there should be battery calibration or you can use an application called battery doubler free trial 20times on( enough to bring back battery to life )

Dell inspiron m5030 wont boot up, ac adapter has green light then once it is pluged in light goes out.


Hi,

Try a hard reset. Sometimes it works and is always the first step to take.
Remove the battery and the ac adapter plug from the laptop.
Press and hold the power button for forty seconds.
Install the battery and ac adapter .Now press the power button to attempt a boot into the OS.

If that doesn't work then remove the hard disk to see if it gets past the splash screen and the BIOS whines that it can't find a boo-table OS. That would indicate a hard disk failure.
Also try to remove the memory module(s) from the DIMM slots and then reinstalling them. That reset the modules and cleans some oxidation off the module pins (if there is any)

Hope this helps.

Let me know if you need more information
Thanks

1. Shut down the netbook.
2. Remove battery for +- 15 min.
3. Replace battery.
4. Do not switch on netbook, ie boot up, until charge light goes to green ie indicates fully charged.

Computer dies at start up


Does the computer startup when plugged in? Try to remove the battery and plug it into a wall socket then turn it on. If it still does not start, the problem is not the battery. My initial thought if it's not the battery its the Operating System (OS) in your case Windows XP. I had this same thing happen to me last week after Adobe updated itself. What I needed to do was reload my XP OS. If you have the original restore disk that came with the computer, use it and reinstall XP. If you have files on your laptop that you need to keep and are not backed up externally, you will need to get those files extracted from the hard-drive before you reinstall the OS. This can be done by removing the Hard drive from the computer, make sure the computer is unplugged and battery removed before you do this. Take it to you friendly neighborhood computer geek and have He/She run the hard-drive externally to extract the files and place them on a disk or a flash drive. This is also a good time to have the hard-drive scanned for viruses or maleware so you don't reinstall the on the computer. Wipe the hard drive and start to reinstall. If this is more than you can handle, you can get someone locally to do the work for you and it shouldn't cost you more than $100.
