Having problems with your Compaq PC Laptops ?

My compaq laptop will not charge pass 73% no matter how i plug it in. It just started doing this only this week. Can this problem be solved or do i need to buy a new battery. It has a 1GB memory w/ a 160HDD (most of which is free) but it is very slow. It takes approximately 3 minutes for a window to open.


Answers :

Yes, your battery is dying, they all do in time. I replace my Dell battery every 18 months.

Your slowness has nothing to do with the battery, it's because it's a Windows PC, and they all slow down as you add more programs.
