Having problems with your PC Laptops ?
Total power loss no battery or mains
\015 My laptop toshiba equim has a total power loss will not charge all fuses changed except any internal ones have not opend it\015
Hi did it just stop working or did it happen gradually? Working for a while then shutting down and if so did it happen for shorter and shorter periods. If this is the case your fan and heatsink are probably blocked with dust. I hope this isn't the case but if so I'd reccommend that you get an expert to take a look as you could do more harm than good if you dont know what you're doing

A fully charged Toshiba Satellite M305D-4831 has a nasty tendency of running the battery down when it is put to sleep and hibernation. It is worse when in sleep, as I lose nearly half of the charge in about two hours between charging and arriving at my office. When in Hibernation the loss of charge is much lower, but worse than my old Dell Inspiron 6400 on sleep.
If you go to control panel + power settings you can configure and adjust how your power gets distributed when in sleep mode etc. This may not totally fix your issue as it will alleviate the loss of power. I would first see what type of life the batte ... PC Laptops
I have a friend with a Compaq Evo N60c laptop. He has asked me to see if i can get it working as there seems to be no life in it. It's plugged in but the battery has been fully discharged and even plugged in it takes NO power and is totally lifeless?? I have checked all the conections and all seems to be ok and there is power from the mains lead. (though not sure if there is enough power i'll have that checked today) Can anyone help move us on a little further with this or is this a common
This often happens with notebook batteries - even unused, there is a limited shelf life. (I had a brand new one that, after sitting ready as a "spare" only, would not work after some 3 - 4 years.) As there appears to be no N60c notebook, it is assume ... Compaq PC Desktops

I am working on an HP Pavillion a1220n Desktop and I am getting different bootups each time. First we had a visual (video), but when we enter bios, the computer would not freze up, but simply just reboot itsself, and it would reboot everytime by itsself, no matter where you were at from 15-20 seconds after booting up. So I removed the CPU/FAN and Heatsync and they were covered with dust, I cleaned the dust off, and plug it back in, and now when I turn it on, the fans are running in the back, b
