How do I know if I need a new battery or power cord for my laptop when it powers down after being unplugged? 

by on November 30, 2012

Q: Do I need a new battery, a new ac cord, or both? Or is my computer beginning it’s death throes?

It is a 5 year old Toshiba Satellite A215-s6816 running Vista. I added RAM a couple years ago but no other modifications.

Its power cord recently began getting hot after several hours of use, specifically the plug that goes to the computer and the few inches down from there. Now it will randomly stop sending juice to the computer and I have to wiggle the computer plug to get it to work.

The computer itself and the ac power block have always gotten hot, but never the cord. The battery has always held a charge poorly, has progressively gotten worse and is now effectively dead. After 10 or so seconds unplugged the battery is drained and the computer immediately shuts off.

What to do? Is a new battery worth it? How about a new power cord? Any advice is welcome.

How come my motherboard does not keep the time correctly even after changing the battery? 

by on February 14, 2012

Q: I recently acquired a Motherboard with a problem.
The Clock/calendar does not operate and changes made in the BIOS will not save.
I replaced the battery and tested battery socket and determined that battery-voltage is getting to BIOS chip. I can not find any bad solder connections at IC.
The Mobo jumper is in proper location.
I think the BIOS IC is defective but was wondering you knew of anything else that could cause this problem?
