I'm having a weird problem with my HP laptop. I turn it off normally before I go out, but when I turn it on, it displays blurry and stretched out. It all started when I installed Yahoo Messenger 11 and if I uninstall it, everything is fine. I don't know if it's really because of the Yahoo Messenger. My friend advised me to do a system restore but I don't see any restore point.

I bought my HP laptop CQ61 like 8 months back. It had been working fine till now. Recently I drained out the battery in a flight. When I reached back to home and put it in on the charger it didn’t get charged.

I mean the light doesn’t get turn on and neither the laptop. I tried removing the battery cleaning up the terminals and replacing it back but it had no effect. I hope it's not the laptop but the battery but then batteries don’t run out in 6-7 months. Please give me some idea as to what is wrong with my laptop.

I have a Dell inspiron laptop that keeps on shutting off by itself, though it does turn on sometimes and works for hours .But sometimes it shuts off  the very first time, I switch it. It looks like someone is unplugging, when  shuts down because its sudden. I don’t know what could have caused this?

Although my fan is busted , I keep it cool by an external power source fan. It’s not an overheating problem since I checked the laptop bottom and it is cool when it does that. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

I have a Sony Vaio E series and my problem is that, sometimes the touch pad of my laptop kind of acts funny. I mean sometimes it will not click (although I can hear the key make the click sound) or else it will not even move the mouse on screen. I have tried to clean the pad with little alcohol and cotton but still no effect.
Also I have updated the software and made sure my laptop has no viruses. Right now I am using an external USB mouse but will be grateful if someone can tell me what the problem is or how to correct it.

I have a 2- year old Compaq Presario that keeps shutting down after around one hour of use. Problem started a year ago and keeps on repeating. These are the things I have already done to revive my laptop:

  1. Cleaned the fan and heat sink. 
  2. Applied thermal paste to the heat sink.
  3. Reformatted the laptop.
  4. Installed updated anti-virus and made sure there are no malwares and Trojan.
  5. Brought my laptop to the service center.
  6. My laptop would be functioning well for around a week after I tried to fix it but it will start shutting down again. Is there any other way to truly fix it?

I would like to get a second opinion on an issue I'm having with a Acer Aspire 5050 Notebook.

Seconds after I turn it on it shuts down suddenly (after passing the POST screen).

I've noticed that the CPU fan isn't working and cause overheating problems.

So is the faulty fan causing those sudden shutdowns right after I turn the laptop on or could the problem lie somewhere else?
