Maybe I should post another question, but I have a multimeter and I could check the voltage in connector that goes into the laptop and the battery connectors, but I am not sure which pins would how much volts. A couple of months ago I got this message when hovering the mouse over the battery icon: connected, not charging. By my researches in the Internet, I believe, in fact, the motherboard is to blame this time and it's going to cost a lot of money to have it changed. As soon as it starts to boot from the hard drive, hold down the Shift key to make the Grub menu appear. Open Contents and open the Info.Next
I have attached the files needed for Clover. Quite a few people have this issue with Dell laptops. Changes: 09-02-2015 - Partially rewritten the guide. I have checked my flash drive and based on your info I have 10. I have included a file called: aifc09022015.Next
Just because the charger powers the laptop doesn't tell you if the battery will charge. You can try again to get the right one. It was unreliable and prone to locking up hard. There are no problems with the drive and it works perfectly fine as a data disk. Thanks for sharing the solution, never thought of that.Next
The Windows 8 reset feature is definitely an excellent way to get out of trouble if there is an incurable problem but I question whether that obviates the need for a backup image. I recommend using Clover, a guide on how to install Clover can be found at the bottom of this post, under the spoiler. Then once that is done there are many things going on that still may prevent you from booting without a failure. D: I didn't know if i can post this new thread here so excuse me if i supposed not. I played with this for a few weeks before giving up. So it was not any of the batteries, or chargers, we had one which did get chewed up by a dog so that did not count. It sounds as if you have 2 problems at the same time.
My laptop is bricked so I need to get the. If you do not change these load orders you will never finish an install on a usb device. The Master passwords are case sensitive so when you get the master password check you caps lock if you get the password invalid message. I would have to buy a new one and I don't want spend money without being sure of what's going on. After spending the last several days searching these forums, a couple of on-line chats with Dell tech support, some of my own experimentation, and much gnashing of teeth and pulling hairs, I am desparate to get a definative answer to a question that has seemed to baffle a lot of people.Next
Learn some manners and respect, sir! The system won't let me do that, but I have my adapter plugged in and it is working seemingly fine. It will give an error, but upon closing it, and inspecting your directory, you should see that the archive was extracted and phlash16. You can also use Clover Configurator, makes things a lot easier. Basically it is the firmware or software that is embedded on the motherboard of your computer. Once installed, restart, then search for new drivers using Device Manager. To make things easier, you can select them before starting the installation.Next
If you do not press the key quickly enough, the operating system will begin to load normally. Anyway, I still would like to count on you expertise here. Move up with the arrow keys until Clover is highlighted, press +. I sincerly thanks everybody and hope that my experience can be helpful. After downloading the suitable file, use to extract it: sudo apt-get install dosbox In the directory where you just downloaded the file: dosbox. Try charging the battery when the laptop is off.Next
Regards Amrinder D Social Outreach Professional Regards Amrinder D Social Outreach Professional Hey, tried all of the above just now - nothing works. If this happens, you will need to power down the laptop and try again, pressing the F2 key as soon as you have pressed the power button. If fail to enter Boot Menu, you can reboot and try again. If you get another kernel panic, see if you can boot in safe mode. The inanity of Microsoft never ceases to amaze me. Thanks to Herve can't use special characters, you know who you are! Shown as follow: Step 5: Press F10 to save the setting and Exit. I545-A12 and hit return to start it up.Next
