This may be a hard drive issue. See if you can get into the bios. If so see if it recognizes the hard drive and try to run a hard drive test from there. Then let me know.

What does the A Padlock mean on a Dell Latitude d830


Hello, Sounds like you either have a spybot or virus. When you power up your laptop immediately start hitting the f8 and go into the safe mode and check for viruses. You need to put malwarebytes on it and clean in safe mode. Here is website for malwarebytes.This is free and works.

What do; the four little lights below my keyboard mean? One is the battery, one is the internet, but the other two? Especially the third from the lert with the icon that looks like a stack of pancakes?


The icon that looks like a stack of pancakes is the one for the hard disk drive and the indicator with the icon flickers or lights whenever there is hard disk activity. The reading / writing of large files will cause the hard disk drive activity indicator to light almost steadily until the file reads / writes have completed. There are two icons that look like little padlocks. One has the character 1 and the other has letter A. The padlock icon with the 1 in the middle is the indicator for NumLk or Numeric Keypad lock. Pressing the Fn key and the key with NumLk on it turns the Numeric Keypad on and off. When it is on, pressing the keys for UIOJKL will enter 456123 facilitating entry of numbers with the keys arranged as a keypad along with the top row of keys 789. Finally, the padlock icon with the A in the middle is the Caps Lock indicator which lights when the Caps Lock key is pressed allowing subsequent presses of letter keys to be capitals without having to press the shift key. Pressing Caps Lock a second time turns off the Caps Lock. Similarly, a second press of Fn and NumLk turns off the NumLk.

The battery on my laptop will not come out. The release tab is stuck and no matter what I try it will not budge. Any suggestions?


Run the computer on battery until the battery is dead. Spray the battery bay and release tab with a _LIGHT_ coat of WD-40 and try again. A small screwdriver may help to pry the release out of the way. Too much pressure can break the release. If the battery is working well, you could just live with it in place until replacement time.

My IBM Thinkpad is not switching on?


The error message relates to the date and time setting in the BIOS, it has a wrong due to a flat BIOS battery. The needs to be replaced and the date and time corrected,
The padlock symbol indicates the laptop's BIOS has been set with a password and you cannot enter and change the BIOS settings without this password.

Replace the BIOS battery with a new one, then boot up and enter your BIOS password, then change the time & date, then save and exit.

Tryed the DC Converter Board Change No Difference same Problem. Noticed When Laptop Did Start Clock Time Was always a Little Off 2-4 Hours sometimes more. So Figure CMOS Problem With Time Issues. Read About Battery Memory Transitor Voltage spike Detection Issues Corrected With Newer Bios Flash at HP Supports. So I Flashed Bios With Latest 686h. During the First Boot After Reflash Battery LED Did flash No Start, After pushing the power button again it Started. And has Every since.So Far Laptop Now Boots Everytime and CMOS Checksum Seems To Keep Time Correct In Windows. The Bios Flash Corrects a Voltage Spike Detecting Transistor In The Charging Circuit. During First Start after flash Bios will run system test on the charging system and Correct CMOS. Worked for Me Hope this Helps a Few.
