Help!! my dell 6000 laptop has been running without a battery installed, only been using the power cord. The first time I turned it on today, the company freezed after all the desktop icon and start up programs are load (about 5 mins), I had to turn it off using the power button. I turned it on again, this time it freezed in 2 minutes, couldn't even get to the part which I can see my desk top, I did the same, turned off using power button. The third time I started it, it last only 30 second,


Answers :

No running the laptop without a battery will not hurt it in any way. I would suggest like you thought that it's a cooling problem. It may need the cooling fins cleaned out and silicone grease reapply'd to the processor and heatsinks.

I own a hp pavilion slimline s3100n computer. Yesterday I turned it on and it kept freezing on me, so I did a system recovery and that helped nothing. Now when I turn it on the blue power light comes on indicating there is power going to it but nothing will boot up. Any assistance with this issue would be much appreciated. Also the yellow light that shows whether its loading is not lighting up.
