Tecra A5 - charges the battery only when the computer is turned off


For a few days, my Tecra A5 has started to beep and stop it (like when the battery is low) then that it was connected to the power supply adapter.

I finally realized that when the computer is plugged in, the battery discharge and does not use the power supply to recharge.

On the other hand, if I turn off the computer, the battery starts to charge.
I replaced the battery a few months ago, so I think it's still OK.

The charger would be defective? Seems strange since it can always recharge the battery when the computer is turned off.

Thanks in advance for your contributions.

> The charger is defective?

Theoretically; Yes, but could also be electronic supply on the motherboard is affected, but on the first stage of the AC adapter should be verified and laptop needs to be tested with AC adapter new, good work.

    You're overthinking this problem.  Simply configure tasks planned to inform you of missed tasks .  If the date of scheduled backup has been a weekend or a holiday with the computer off, the next time you turn on the computer you will get a notification that "some tasks did not run."  At this time, manually start the backup job.

  • Satellite Pro U400-11V - charges only battery when the computer is turned off

    Following a reformatting my hard drive of the computer, my laptop recognizes only the AC/DC power adapter when it is turned off. When the computer is turned on, it does not recognize the AC adapter.

    Changed the power supply ac and it made no difference.

    Have also tried an update of the BIOS (3.0), I am running Windows Vista 32 bit.


    I doubt it has something to do with the software or the operating system. In my opinion, that this looks like a hardware problem, because the battery will be always charged if AC/DC adapter is plugged in. That's why it of not necessary to enable this setting in the configuration of the software.

    If your BIOS is already updated, contact an authorized service provider. Technicians can check your laptop and maybe the motherboard needs to be replaced.

  • Backup cancelled in Windows 7 when the computer is turned off.

    I use Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit operating system.

    Periodically, the Action Center will display a message saying that I have to do a backup, what I do before turning off the computer. However, when I reboot the computer, I discovered that the backup has been cancelled.

    I have searched the web but can't find information about how to make the computer shuts down automatically once the backup completed successfully.  Does anyone have a solution?

    The backup has been working in the past?

    Have you ever attempted an upgrade to Windows 10 and then back to Windows 7?

    For example let's say you have your backup scheduled task to run at midnight...

    If your computer is stopped at midnight, the backup does not - because the computer is stopped and the task was "missed" because the computer has been shut down.

    If you have the backup task configured on "Run as soon as possible after a regular departure was missed":

    When your computer working again missed backup task starts automatically.

    If you have your scheduled backup job to run at midnight and your computer is in "Sleep" mode, you have the task configured to wake the computer to run the backup:

    This won't work for wake up the computer if it is in "Sleep" mode  It will not work if the computer is in hibernation or if the computer is shut down.  As you can be awakened from sleep, the computer can be awakened from sleep, but you can't be awake if you're dead (stop).  You have to sleep to being awake.  You can be awake if you're dead or hibernation.

    The 'problem' with this approach is if the computer wakes up and runs the backup it will continue to function and you don't want that.   You can the computer to wake up, run the backup, and then click Stop (or to go back to sleep) when the backup is complete, and you can configure to occur in two different ways.  If that's how you think you want things to work ask the question in the right way, and describe how you want things to work.

    If your computer is in hibernation or stop the scheduled backup will not work until the computer working again and realizes that he has missed a task... then the backup will run - if you have the task set to do as the first example.

    Depending on certain factors that have nothing to do with Windows there are ways to make your computer start at a certain time of the hibernation or shutdown (mean 23:55) so it will be quick and then the backup will take place at midnight but will continue to operate your computer unless you include an additional step to stop the system again when the backup is complete.  These things are not exactly automatically built into Windows, but there might be ways to do things the way it works.  If that's how you think you want things to work ask the question in the right way, and describe how you want things to work.

    Find how to solve is often a matter of the question or stating the problem clearly there is no guess, no things difficult and none of these proceedings of the wild goose.

    What is the problem with the way your backup works now?

    What part doesn't work the way you think it should work?

    How do you think this should work?

    How it works?

    If your computer is turned off (off) do you want that it to wake up itself, run the backup and then stop when the backup he fill?  You can do it if you want, but it takes an extra effort and has a few requirements outside the Windows operating system.

    The task of the example above is set to run every Monday at 09:00.

    If my computer is running at 09:00 on Monday, the backup will start and run Monday at 09:00.

    If my computer doesn't work at 09:00 on Monday, the backup will run as soon as possible after the computer restart us and that's fine with me.

    I do not use sleep or Hibernate so I don't have to worry about how get the copy backup to run under these conditions.

  • When the computer is turned off to stop is no longer the Vista 64 external USB Drive (SeaGate/Maxtor)

    Vista 64 - bit SP2. TB external Maxtor OneTouch 4 drive, worked well, now he wants to run continuously. The USB disk drive does not stop when I go through the steps to Remove material for it, then shut down the computer normally. Or the last step of the computer stops the disk external closing. Now the external hard drive keeps spinning, I don't know about the heads of read/write being parked or not and the white light comes on. This disk is used for the storage of photos; 30 backups; and several databases. I can't wait to have the drive platters turning 24 x 7, and I can't confirm that the read/write heads were parked safely. The error message associated with this question is below in bold. The player is now like the rabbit, continuous running.

    Diagnosis of Maxtor for this drive have been executed successfully.

    Maxtor check driver indicates that the driver is the most recent.

    Device driver Vista says the car is fine. I checked that the drive can read and write. Different backups have been recorded on this disc. I have not tried a restore because of this problem.

    Maxtor says that there is not any change in firmware pending for this drive.

    Seem like a command to close jammed somehow being sent on disk.

    Apparently the Maxtor One Touch USB Device, property, to optimize for quick removal of the external drive, you just completely shut down the computer and the external hard drive finished last (no need to use the hardware logic safely remove). The other option here is "optimized for performance (you must use the material logic safely remove) to turn off the player."

    These flags are defined in the Device Manager-online records-online Mass storage Drive L:

    Anyway, you try to stop the external hard drive, it will fail with the following error message:

    "Windows can't stop your 'Generic Volume' device because he's busy." Try again later. " Or a statement to this effect."

    The only software running when the error is Vista 64 bit and the logic of trying to stop the player.

    Hi Bill,

    Thanks for the detailed explanation

    I you suggest to activate the clean boot and then test to see if this works very well as expected

    Step 1: Put the computer in a clean boot

    Follow step 1 in the link below,

    How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista or in Windows 7


    If everything works well after a clean boot, you can deduce that some third-party services are at the origin of the problem.

    Continue with the remaining steps to pin-point on the third party service.

    After find you the program that is causing the problem, you will have to perhaps to update or install a newer version of the program, if you rarely use that you should consider uninstalling the software.

    Important: n ' forget not the computer to start normal follow step 7 in the link.

  • H233H"cable not connected" with the computer is turned off

    My H233H monitor displays an annoying blue "cable not connected" when my computer is off or in stand-by mode.  Monitor works find out otherwise and all the buttons on the front panel work.  But impossible to find a setting that will turn the monitor off when the computer stops sending a signal.

    If I unplug the cable from the monitor to the computer's HDMI, should not the monitor eventually fade or go to sleeo?  Or will she continue to display this message "cable not connected" blue indefinitely?

    Thank you

    Well, I realized that it is a problem of Acer monitor with HDMI input.

    There is no problem if I connect my H233H monitor with VGA or DVI cable.

    Just thought I'd come back and answer my own question if someone ever comes back here with a similar problem.

  • Is it possible to get the computer will turn off after completing a task?


    I was wondering, if I download a YouTube video, and while I'm waiting I put my computer in "Sleep Mode", when the download is complete will be my computer turns off automatically, or it stays on? I wonder because my internet is very slow and takes all day to download a single video, so I had to download excessive night but I'm worried about a fire or something to do while I'm asleep. If you can let me know it will stop automatically once the download is complete, I'll be very grateful for your time.

    Hi Ryan,

    If you do it this way, the download stops when you put the computer to sleep.  Which, according to me, that you are looking for really to do is to use the Task Scheduler to set up a task to wake the computer from sleep mode, run the task and then put the computer to sleep when you are finished.

    To do this, please see the following 3 items:

  • Windows takes time to stop when the computer is turned off

    has had to reload xp without windows takes a long time to stop


    Welcome to the Microsoft community!

    You re - install Windows XP and still have the same problem?

    During the shutdown of the Windows XP computer, it may take longer time to complete the shutdown process. Slow stops are caused a lot of factors. One of the causes is the clear pagefile at shutdown option enabled.

    Try the following steps:

    Use the Group Policy Editor

    a. Click Start, run and type in "Secpol.msc".
    b. click local policies | Security options.
    (c) in the right pane, set stop: clear the pagefile of virtual memory for people with reduced mobility.

    However, this setting is not the only cause of slow closures. No relevant programs and Services also contribute to slow closures.

    If the problem is seen recently after installing a driver software or third-party, try a system restore to see if that solves the problem of the slow stop.
