    My omnibook xe3 GF will not start with battery only. It will boot with the ac adapter and it shows the battery 99% charged but it will not run on battery power. I have tried 3 different batteries and a different power adapter but same thing happens. Could it have anything to do with the fan to the processor not running on battery? Just a guess? Could it be overheating? Funny that it works fine on ac and appears to charge the battery but if you unplug the ac - it dies. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi hello pls help me to restore cmos bios setting to my laptop model asus m3000n...pls help? & my hitachi harddisk to enabled the password...pls again help me?

Your hard disk did not set your BIOS password. BIOS passwords are of little or no value to the average person and there is no reason to set one for a private owned computer. If you did set your password and then forgot it and now need into your setup - open the case, find the battery and remove it. Wait 5 minutes and reinstall it. Turn on your computer and the BIOS will reset itself to the original default settings. You will have to set the time.

Hi well actualy i am trying to reboot vista home on hp presario machine since two days from the oem dvds, after avg fake positive crash but it can not go further then the blinking curser, pls youguy help...

in that case the windows had suffered too, therefore, the registry is stuggling to load its values making your computer to not go further on booting and giving you a task bar.

run windows upgrade using you windows vista cd, you won't loose your data but the existing windows will be overrided and previous values with errors will be trancated and repaired.

i would like to hear from you,

The quick restore dosen`t work

What operating system you are using before installing windows xp. If it is windows 98, Your restore cd will restore windows 98. if you want to restore to factory settings pls boot from the restore cd and format the harddisk. Becareful, this will erase your entire data on the harddisk which cannot be recover. If you are using licenced (not pirated) windows xp boot from it and reinstall windows xp so that you can run the os smoothly. But in either case becarefull when you are formating, it will destroy entire data and you may endup in soup. feel free to revert back for further quiries
