Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My battery (on my HP Compaq 6910p) was charging just fine until I recently upgraded my Windows XP Pro OS to Windows Vista Business. Now the battery icon (in the lower right hand corner of Windows) is giving me the messege "99% available (plugged in, not charging)". I do not understand why my battery is not charging now (right after upgrading my OS to Windows Vista Business). Thank you for any help that anyone can offer me.

If you are sure your charger is good check the Compaq site for updates for your computer. Vista had lots of problems, I would suggest updating to at least win 7 pro if it's an option.

SOURCE: Compaq Armada M700 Shut Off During Windows XP Pro boot

It's usually caused by the Voltage-Regulator sub-board that is faulty M700/M300 - same problem. If the VR sub-board is replaced and problem still exists, mobo is faulty.

SOURCE: Compaq laptop problem

Hi WV,

I am still testing on the battery and so far no problems with the flash drive in. The slow booting is due I think to Avast updating the virus database at the same time. Otherwise it boots OK. I am getting an error at shutdown "SynTPLpr failed to initialize properly" I have also noticed that I don't need to click on the user login at boot time, only place the cursor over the name and it takes off by itself.

SOURCE: Problems with the ac smart adapter Hp Compaq 6910p

You could possibly have a loose dc jack.Being able to wiggle it around and getting it to work tells me that the jack is probally going out.That wiggling your doing can cause an arc on your system board,which can short out your board.Stop wiggling your power supply adapter in your dc jack and take your computer to certified repair shop and have your jack checked.Best to rule this out first ,so no damage is done to your board.If you jack test good ,then replace you power supply....Good luck

SOURCE: Is buying this Hp Compaq 6910p Battery a wise decision?

I have bought a couple of batteries from them before. They work just make sure that the voltage of the battery. (10.8v) matches the voltage on your battery. Also make sure that the mah 6600mah is greater or the same as the battery that you have. The mah is the mili ampers per hour (in other words the fuel) the bigger the mah the longer your battery will run. I also find ebay a great place to buy hp batterys from. Just make sure that they are oem hp and not a generic knock off and you will be fine and use the same rules from above. and also make sure they will fit your model number. I hope this helps
thanks
Steven.

I am recently upgrade win7 hp nx9110 audio output device not installed msg getting how to resolve


Ok this is kind of common with Windows 7. Although everyone thinks its new its really not just a fairly bug free OS. The HP models running Win7 actually are using the Vista or XP driver for audio. I just ran into that issue a few months ago when upgrading a Pavillian model.

Changing Vista to XP Pro on a Compaq Presario SR2180NX Desktop PC


SR2180NX has the Vista 32Bit OS from HP. The restore partition will always put Vista 32Bit back on if you use it. Windows XP can only be put on from scratch and I have done it while I still have Vista installed. One problem: there are no XP drivers under SR2180NX webpages. Do your research on the parts that are installed in the 2180 and any other HP machines that have the Windows XP operating system as the OEM OS. But First, check the Intel Site for the 945 chipset drivers (include the SouthBridge, too) under XP. Get them downloaded to a CD and burn the rest of the drivers you find for XP on the same CD. This way, you will have them ready when you are performing the down-grade to windows xp. After you are done with the XP install, you will still have access to the files & work you had done while in Vista. The Vista files are still readable. You might want to consider getting the Windows 7 Professional (not basic) available October 22, 2009. AND you will still have to get the Intel Downloads for Win7 any way, so why not make it a project and make it last for a few years. XP Support stops in 2014.

How want to downgrade win vista to xp pro hp compaq v3000


If you have a Windows XP Pro installation disk, put it in the optical drive, restart your computer, on startup, go to BIOS settings (usually press [Delete] and set the optical drive as first boot device. Save changes and exit. When the computer starts it usually says to press any key to start from CD. Press any key and the windows installation will start. Make sure you format C: and you will downgrade to Windows XP Pro. If you want to upgrade to Vista again, you will need to know the keyboard sequence to start Vista from Its partition or have Vista install disk.
