Laptop battery replacement help

Cheap Laptop Batteries: Good Deal or Risky?

 

Be careful when shopping for a replacement laptop battery.

 

Regardless of the cost, the safest approach is to only purchase batteries from the company that made the computer.

 

The batteries in laptop computers are expensive (a quick review of prices at Lenovo.com shows they range from $119 to $179), and like any battery, they have a limited lifespan. When it comes time to replace the battery inside your laptop computer, you may be tempted to save a few bucks and buy a replacement from a company other than the one that made the computer.

Don't.

 

The lesson here is to only buy replacement batteries from the company that made the computer. Off-brand batteries are more likely to scrimp on safety features.

    How to troubleshoot screen flickering The first thing you need to do is to figure out what's actually causing the screen to flicker. You can quickly find this out by opening the Task Manager by right-clicking the Taskbar and selecting Task Manager , or you can use the Ctrl + Shift + Esc keyboard shortcut. The next step is to pay attention to the screen and see if the Task Manager flickers. If everything on the screen flickers, but Task Manager doesn't, then you're dealing with an incompatible application. In the case that Task Manager flickers along with everything else on the screen, then the problem is most likely to be the graphics drivers. Once you've figured out what is generally causing the issue you went through the troubleshooting steps, you can follow the steps below to tackle the problem. How to uninstall incompatible applications How to update graphic drivers How to uninstall incompatible applications While there is a large number of applications that could cause issues, usually you can narrow it down to your third-party antivirus and applications designed for previous versions of Windows. If you have installed Norton Antivirus, iCloud, and IDT Audio, these are applications known in the past to cause problems. To uninstall incompatible applications, do the following: Open Settings . Click on System . Click on Apps & features . Select the app causing the problem and click Uninstall . Click Uninstall again to confirm. If you're uninstalling an app from the Store, there are not further actions to take. However, if you're uninstalling a traditional desktop application, you'll have to go through the uninstall process. Alternatively, you can use Control Panel to uninstall a problematic desktop application. Open Control Panel . Click on Uninstall a program . Select the application you want to remove. Click Uninstall and go through the uninstall process. Once you uninstall the applications that may be causing the problem, reboot your computer, and see if that fixes the problem. If you have successfully addressed the issue, but you need the application, make sure to check the software company's support website for more information, an updated version, or alternative options that will work on Windows 10.

    The HDMI port on all laptops are output only. It allows users to use their laptop as a potable media device to plug into High-Def TVs and projectors; so there's no way to hook it up unless u get x8100 its input .

    This error indicates that a problem exists related to the heat removal system. One of two possible events is occurring: The system fan is not spinning or not spinning properly. The temperature inside the case is too high and the fan cannot spin fast enough to remove the heat. To fix this error, use the following steps: If you notice that the system fan spins and is blowing warm air from the computer, clean the exterior vents to remove dust buildup by blowing air through the vent openings. Do this while the computer is off. Dust can accumulate inside the vent opening and around internal cooling components, preventing the removal of heat. After dust has been removed, try turning on the computer to see if the error goes away. if not, continue to the next step. Perform a hard reset. Performing a hard reset can reset recorded thermal values in memory and enable you to use the computer again — even if only for a short time to access and save any important files before service. In some cases, updating the BIOS may help prevent this error from occurring. Have the computer serviced to clean internal components and replace the system fan if necessary. Ensure that the following items are addressed during servicing: Thoroughly remove dust from all internal cooling components. Ensure that wires from the system and CPU fans are connected to the motherboard securely. Ensure that the system fan blades spin correctly, and that the fan is not producing loud noises. If not working correctly, replace the system fan. Remove old thermal compound from integrated circuits and heat sinks, and replace with new thermal compound.
