Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

The laptop will not run with the battery only I took it out several weeks ago and have been told that I have to order the battery my mail. I thought I would try to charge it one more time. I inserted the battery and the battery light is not on at all. the Drive and Power lights are on. How long do I have the "charge" the battery before I know if the battery is truly shot. Also, since I have power cord in the correct position. and it is plugged into the power outlet correctly So I guess my question is How long before I know if the battery is okay and taking a charge.

How old is this batteries? If you leave it in for 10~12 hours and still no sign of charging, then more likely the batteries are gone.
One thing about laptop batteries is that if you never run it in batteries mode but always uae the AC adapter, the batteries can still go bad because the batteries will be charging/discharging, after about two years they will be bad. I take out may batteries and put it back in every 3 months to recharge over night then I will remove it.
One possibilty is that the charging circuits may have failed.

Cannot receive emails

I would say use G mail, But most likely it's a Browser issue, Reset your Browser or use a new one.... Not to mention most E-mail can be forwarded to another e-mail address, So you can have you GMX send to G-mail., Just a Thought.

So i spilt coffee on my laptop about a week ago and it starts to turn on and then wont I asked the geek squad guys they told me to leave it in the garage for a week and then try working with it and it...

Your laptop has suffered from the dreaded coffee spill !

If you have already allowed the laptop 1 week to "DRY OUT" and it still doesn't work then you have a serious problem.

Check the battery to make sure there is sufficient power supply to the laptop and it may be helpful to take the battery out of the laptop and check it for wetness.

If this proves ok then you need to look further

It means that the coffee has entered deep into the electronics and possibly caused a short circuit!

Don't throw the laptop away just yet. You will need to take the laptop to someone skilled who can run a test on your laptop in order to make a diagnosis. This may also mean stripping the laptop out of it's case to check/test hardware etc.

Ring around and get the lowest price you can and try to tell them everything you know about the laptop as this may save you money.

Unless you personally have the skills to pull apart your laptop then sadly it is going to cost you some money.

ps. if your laptop is several years old then it may not be worth spending the money on it.
However if it is reasonably new then spending maybe $50-$100 could be money well spent.

I bought my Zune 2 years ago and thought I had lost it, but found it. So I have been using it for only 1 year. About 2 weeks ago even after charged, it will only play off the charger for about 45 minutes....

Zune batteries are replaceable. They can be purcahsed for about $10-$15 and with a little knowledge can be replaced by anyone. Check the internet for both the battery and replacement instructions. eBay is a great place to find the battery and most places even include the needed tools
