Sounds like you need to replace the CMOS battery on the motherboard. It will be a round silver disc about the size of a nickel.

    You will have to open your computers case and look for it on the motherboard.

Mac model A1181. battery is not charging

When you plug the charger in does the charging light light up? Is is amber or green? If the light doesn't light up you may want to look at the charging unit itself as the culprit and get it replaced. If it does, then the problem could be either with the power management unit or with the battery itself. You can reset the power management system pretty easily to see if it resolves your issue. You can do this by powering down your laptop, removing the battery and then holding the power button down for 5 seconds. Replace the battery and power your laptop back on and take a look to see if the battery starts charging again. If the battery still doesn't charge you can easily check the battery. Download the app "Coconut Battery" from this website: and run it. This will tell you what the current and max capacities are of your battery in mAh (milliamp hours). It will ALSO tell you what the designed capacity was of your battery. If your current capacity is significantly lower than the design capacity then you will need a new battery. You can buy these straight from Apple. If your battery reads as good you may have an issue between the charger and your battery...and now you're talking logic board issues and you would need to get it repaired by an Apple technician.

I hope that helps!

My Acer keyboard is locked and I do not know how I locked it. Could you please tell me how to unlock the keyboard so I can work in Windows 7 and get my work done. Thank you

You may have to take the skin off and remove the nickel battery for 60 sec. While at it you might want to jump from nrm to clr on RTC. Unplugged of course.
Put nickel battery cell back in, then move jumper back to nrm for RTC. Plug in computer and your BIOS should be wiped out. Be careful not to do this mistake again.

I have a T3626 emachine that I replaced the drive.

check all your ground screws on the motherboard. If that doesn't work try booting it up with out the hard drive. if that doesn't work, pop out the BIOS battery and unplug your computer, let it sit for about a min. and put the battery back in and restart.

Humming noise

IT sounds like the fan bearings are going out already, or have flat spots on them that cause vibration at speed. Try calling the manufacturer and tell them the fan either quit working or is about to quit.

Dell SX260...Wont Boot...Power Button Flashing Amber....grrrr!

Try these (un order of degree of difficulty) 1. Try replacing the battery on the system board. it is  typically a CR2032 button-style battery. This helps if the computer has been off for a long time.  2. Make sure all dust has been blown or vacuumed out of the computer. 3. Check to see if the USB pins are bent inside the connector on the back and the front of the computer. Straighten if possible. 4. Remove add-in cards, fans, shrouds, and heatsinks, then check the system board for leaky or mushroomed capacitors. If you would like, this may also be a good time to see if the processor is seated correctly or possibly short-circuited (burned black on the bottom, burnt or missing pins, etc). If it is any of these, you may need a new system board (motherboard) 5. It may be that you need a new power supply. Do your best to make sure that it will fit your computer case and have all the power connectors you need; they are not created equal.
