Battery software problem

I just bought a dm4-1217tx 2 months ago

I realized that battery time still believes show in mn for example 4 mins, 3mins etc...

then I went to download an application v3.4.4 BatteryBar and it showed left 4hours when the battery estimated time given by windows 7 is 4 minutes...
is there anyway in which I can solve this problem?

Thank you!



If Windows 7 displays an incorrect value for the battery, it may be worth trying as well.

First, stop the laptop, unplug the AC adapter unplugged, remove the battery and then press and hold the power button for a minute.

Now, plug in the power adapter and start the PC without the battery inserted, start Notepad, open windows control panel, open Device Manager, expand the entry for the Batteries, do a right-click on theMicrosoft ACPI compatible with battery control method and selectUninstall - do uninstall not something else here.  When the uninstall is complete, shut down the PC, unplug the AC adapter, reinsert the battery and then start the PC on just the battery.  Windows will automatically reinstall the driver - leave Windows running for a few minutes. Shut down the PC again.  Now plug the power adapter (with the inserted battery always) and start the laptop to see if it helped the issue at all.

Best wishes

  • Software problem or SIM card reader?


    My brother just bought a new iPhone SE. Like his old iPhone 4 was unnecessary, he gave it to me.

    He has deleted all the data, so it was a whole new iPhone 4 running under 7.1.2

    Unfortunately, that he used a nano SIM with an adapter and when he took the set, things were not going smoothly and he shot it too strong, maybe because the tray was blocked...

    in any case when I turned on the phone with my SIM card (same provider that he bought the phone of) it keeps saying "no sim". I was unable to activate the phone.

    I launched iTunes, plugged the iPhone: 'no SIM '.

    I tried my SIM own brother who worked before the reset (and also before this 'incident' tray) and it was exactly the same situation.

    Then I also tried DFU restore the phone with iTunes, but it was useless.

    So I'm pretty sure that the SIM card reader has been damaged. But I still hope that this situation might be link to a software problem.

    How can I be sure that the phone detects no SIM card. (I won't call an emergency...)

    Thank you very much! It would have been my first smartphone

    Sounds like a problem of material for me. I doubt it's worth the money to get that repaired, although the phone.

  • Computer block, the cursor moves, El Capitan software problem?


    I had a problem with a computer that I just bought. It looks and works very well, but occasionally it freezes and only the cursor can still be moved. The only way to turn it off is to unplug the power supply cord through. If I restart it, it works fine, until it happens again (three times in a period of about six hours today). I went to the Apple store and they tested all and any equipment checked OK. I had just erased the disc and then reinstalled El Capitan, but it happened even before I did. There is no other software on the disk, only El Capitan. The computer has a unique key of 4 GB, and I was wondering if maybe that could be the reason, that it should simply have more RAM and two identical sticks together?

    The last time I was on the Apple store, there is no newspaper on the computer because I had erased the disc, but now it should be, so I guess I'll be back to see if they can find anything.  During this time, is that what someone had this problem? The 'genius' last time said he believed it was probably a software problem, in which case it will take El Capitan, or at least of Safari, which is what I used whenever this happens. When I erased the disc, I deleted the version back from the drive, do not know if the top would have been better, or if it could make a difference. In addition, it often happened when I was on a site as a banking site, that may take more effort to load.

    Specifications are: iMac, G3 mid-2010, processor, 4 GB of memory (single stick of Crucial), El Capitan running.

  • Satellite 1130 battery charge problem

    Hi, just joined this site. I have a Satellite 1130 and seem to have a battery charging problem. Every so often, without regular pattern or a set of events to help the machine starts beeping and the Red charge blinks, as if the battery charge runs out, it is, but it happens when the charger is plugged - green power light shows that it is connected, but it is not the battery. The only solution I found is to turn the power off, disconnect the battery and back again. Then everything works until the next time.

    Any ideas?

    [Edited by: admin April 23 05 18:07]


    It is possible that there is a problem of electronic power supply. If the power supply microcontroller detects an error lamp DC IN sends a code flashing (8-bit error code). Can you please check it if the led blinks 8 times sending the code?

    You can try to contact the Service partner, explain the problem and I'm sure they can give you a clear explanation.

  • Cannot install the driver HP Photosmart C6180 and software problems-, yet get HP-related crashes

    I had a lot of crashes with my main PC, a number related to HP, including at startup ("your computer has recovered from a serious problem") and close (the HP software responds only to not close).  I reformatted the system, reloaded Win XP Pro disk and all updates.  I couldn't reinstall the HP drivers and other software from my CD or after you download from the HP site.  The stalls of process at an early stage (only in step 2), sometimes blocks your PC when it does.

    The last time, I filled the experience HP online questionnaire and noted that I thought I had a generic problem rather than related to HP.  However, checking details on the Microsoft error report, I discovered that after the start I regularly get the message:

    HP Installer Recovery plug has encountered a problem and needs to close

    Download of HP is about 76 Mb.  I have on my C drive (System) of a program file HP/Temp with 7 Mb and on the E partition where I wanted to install the drivers and other software a program file HP / Digital Imaging, 30 MB.  Both are dated yesterday, when I finally tried to install from a download.  The HP printer is not displayed under the control panel of configuration/printers, or the Add Printer Wizard can recognize it on the network.  (I have not tried to disconnect the router and connect directly to the PC, but that shouldn't matter to software problems, should it?)

    Any advice would be welcome.

    Thank you once again, Dexter - it was a Microsoft problem rather than a problem of HP, I finally found and installed the right fix MS and just installed the HP software - to be on the safe side, I only did the essentials of basic printing and left the other stuff for later.  And I'll report this "resolved" if I can find the button after validation!

    Hi Pete,.

    You can install Lightroom via this link:

    However, to get the rear changes you have previously done in Lightroom, you need to get the backup of your previous Lightroom Catalog.

    Store you the backup of your Lightroom catalog before recharging your Mac OS?

  • Equium A60-191: which driver should I solve software problems

    Updates MicroSoft screwed up my OS and I had to get it reinstalled. When it has been reinstalled, I had to reinstall XP as I had no BONES at all. This means that has been reinstalled XP with SP2. Other nearby things I lost all the registry entries for the software on the laptop - despite the fact that the HD has not been deleted data or programs. Although my data are listed under other 'user '.

    A number of drivers have been "lost" and I don't have Toshiba recovery disc (s). That's why I was download the 'obvious' drivers missing. However, some things do not - work as no notification of the battery status in the system tray.

    Neither the Fn keys working.

    It has been suggested that some of the things Toshiba must be downloaded before SP2... If so, how can I sort this problem please?

    It is not clear what drivers on the drivers Equium page are those which are necessary and in some cases, an insufficient description is given: for those of us who are not wise wordly on computers. So unless I can tell that something is missing for example I discovered with my modem - I don't know what I need and what I don't.

    If anybody out there can help with suggestions for what software/drivers, that I need to fix this box or how to get around the order of driver download problems, I would be very grateful.

    Thanks for looking


    I just recommend to install ATI Chipset + Display Driver V6.14.10.6430 as a first step, before you start to install the other stuff listed. As written Jasmine make sure that you have installed all the Toshiba designed the tools and utilities in the correct order. I think that all the FN functions will not work correctly.

  • Battery charging problem

    My iPhone 5s has recently had a charging problem. Got off the phone with about 18% battery life left but when I plugged in to a charger it came back to life and showed 18%. However, with the charger plugged in now never charged iPhone or it does so very slowly. He fell to 16% and stayed there for about 2 hours. Eventually, he started to decline while still connected to the charger until it was empty and closed. I then connected on two different Chargers and he wouldn't return. I left him in charge all night and he was still dead in the morning.

    I had subsequently replace the battery and the charge was 34%. I decided to run low before the additional load as it was a new battery and better empty before recharging. However, the loading has become incredibly slow. I managed to load of 5% to 30% in a few hours, and then he stayed on 30% for 2 hours while I backed up things on my Mac and iCloud. I then continued the charge during the night and in the space of 10 hours, that she went from 30% to 95%.

    Why so slow taxation? I use an Apple USB with a new battery. My software is updated to January 27, 2016. Could there be a problem with the loading port, event, although she acknowledges the Chargers whenever they are connected.
