  1. Laptop waits to update AFTER I start using it


    I have Windows set to update outside of active hours (so overnight) and it just doesn't want to. Last night, I let it install updates and left it plugged in and on, and when I came back 24 hours later, it tells me it needs to restart to finish... Shouldn't it be restarting on its own, or am I just missing something here?

  3. Laptop no longer charging since Windows 10 update

    If the laptop works without the battery then charger is functioning correctly. Take a cloth with a bit of rubbing alcohol on it (or some on-the-go alcohol swabs), and clean the metal contacts that connect your battery to your laptop.

    Make sure to install all Windows important updates.

    Install latest versions of your laptop device drivers you can download the latest device drivers from the device manufacturer or from your laptop manufacturer website.


    Step 1

    1. Shutdown your laptop.

    2. Remove the battery.

    3. Connect the AC power adapter to your laptop.

    4. Power on the laptop

    5. Open the Device Manager by typing Devmgmt.msc into Start Menu or from Control Panel.

    6. Under the Batteries category, right-click all of the Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery listings, and select Uninstall (it’s ok if you only have 1).
