    This already a problem with either the power adapter of the laptop or the battery , so if you can try another battery just to check if the laptop will be working. or better take it to a servcie center near you....

    Clean the terminals on the battery & computer with a clean eraser. Make sure you keep eraser dust out of your box.
    You are looking for a light indicator that the battery is charging or in use.
    Using a PSU from another unit without investigating is dangerous.
    Youi can proceed cautiously , but not before confirming whether or not you just need a new batte



    Good luck.......

You will need to give the brand of computer and it sounds like you are talking about a laptop the battery ran down on?

    Also Clean the terminals on the battery & computer with a clean eraser.The Terminals are the parts that touch each other and are copper colored.

  • Priya darshan Aug 27, 2008

    Well then there are no more home remedies it could be
    a switch failure, but it's more likely a power regulation or mainboard failure.
    You will have to get it repaired.

The dvd player stopped working


Click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll down cd-dvd rom drives you might see a yellow question /exclamation mark ? ! or a red X right click to update driver

you might have to physically unplug the leads for this cd/dvd restart your computer then plug them back this should activate the found new hardware wizard

if this does not fix the problem it might be a registry problem

if you cant see your disk drive in windows explorer


Close all open programs

Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

SYSTEM

After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer

Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.

test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions SATA

the leads from your (motherboard to your hard drive) make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty


make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure connections and are not faulty


even something as small as an electrical extension lead or a faulty fan lead can cause you problems computer needs all of the data and power to travel through every working device and to have an end for a computer to be able work properly


a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive check all electrical extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd drives need to have current go through make sure these devices are working


check the CPU central processing unit make sure it has thermal paste and dust free secure seating


also check your computer ram modules and cmos battery make sure it has charge and they are dust free and securely seated some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in


also check the keyboard and mouse batteries or ps2 or usb leads and connections if applicable
hope it helps

Unable to boot up computer it keeps returning to set up


Set the machine up as normal entering all your information such as new account, networking etc and upon reboot it brings you back to setup again I suggest you do a full format of your Hard Drive and then a full reinstall of Windows and this should sort the problem out.

Dead pc


try to remove all external device connected to your computer. just leave the keyboad, mouse and monitor connected.
restart computer.
if still a blank screen
remove everything connected to your computer (mouse kyeboard and monitor) restart if nothing happens
open your computer and remove all devices (hard drive, optical drives, memory... restart,,, you should be hearing beeping sounds indicating motherboard is looking for memory. try putting back 1 memory at a time and checking all mem slot. to identify if one of the memory could be causing the blank screen. if both memory will not work try to use known good working memory. if you dont get to hear the beeping sound using a known good working memory. your memory is the problem.

Windows xp-winchat not working


Both computors must be connected to the same network{LAN} or Internet as you probably know.Also ,each computor must be running a similar Protocol,such as TCP/IP.Please also recheck the ip address and whether you have not been barred by your destination computor.Regards
