Try this old trick.

Read and try;posts#3056153

Also read so you can start thinking about XP issues if this OS is not what the machine came with or has suffered some malware, virus or registry cleaning damage.


It's also possible you took the battery out incorrectly (like the laptop was on AC?) and fried it.

thnks fr replying bob..
I tried your first trick, but in the Device Manager both my battery components are acpi only, and apart from that, no other battery Drivers are listed.

My lptop wokkf fine on battery except that it is slow, my keyboard and mouse also work fine on battery, besides, when i put my laptop after reinserting the battery once again on battery, it worked fine fr 5 mins, and then after 5 mins it became slow, so maybe its not a battery problem. And also my laptop originally came with xp only.

Please help...

Looks grim.

Looks like you damaged the OS or the machine. Reload the OS and if it still does it then ask how much for repairs.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
