KinchStalker Posted November 28, 2022 Report Share Posted November 28, 2022 My laptop may have just gone FUBAR. For the last ten days or so it's been not detecting the replacement battery I got a couple months back. I know it's still in there because the battery charge was showing up, but the computer doesn't draw power from it. This has resulted in restart loops where some fluctuation in power supply or something messes a thing up and I have to go into boot menu stuff. Now, the keyboard lights flicker when I turn it on, but no boot happens. I reinsert the battery and it goes into a preboot sequence but that crashes when it tries to initialize the battery, and we go back to the keyboard flicker loop. (Which is all that happens when I try to boot without the battery altogether.) It's four years old, so repair likely isn't a realistic option. All historical work is on indefinite hold. Transcription is just not feasible on a smartphone. I apologize for this. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
