HP6720s laptop runs slow on charge

by wet26 / March 29, 2009 10:19 PM PDT

I bought a replacement charger which blew after 10 days. Bought another replacement charger which makes my laptop run really slow. Laptop runs fine on battery only. The replacement charger gets quite hot too.

Also, now the charger light on laptop does not function. It is normally orange when charging and blue when charged - now nothing. The power meter also doesn't show that the battery is charging.

Any advice on why the charger makes my laptop run slow and why the light doesn't work?

If you need more info, let me know.

Thanks in advance.

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?
