Specs: Windows Vista
My Compaq 6710b came with a pre-installed windows Vista Business 32 bit. Then after a time i installed a clean copy of Windows Vista Business 32 bit with the DVD provided with the notebook. Now after the setup the computer become VERY SLOW, the battery doesn't charge (but sometimes it charges)and when i plug the AC Charger Windows Task Manager shows 100% CPU utilization (even doing nothing at all on it). Any solutions, PLEASE!!! Notebook info

Hi, it is almost a year old (including the 2 months in which i did't use the notebook because of the problem). But i dont think the problem is with battery. That is because it has about 28 percent charge and it runs the computer smoothly. The problem is with charging it.

Try measuring the output voltage of the psu.

UK MP's are thieving scumbags.
EU members are worse.

Never mind, i now know what PSU is. I think you are talking about the Power Supply Unit's output voltage. But, how am i going to do that. Thanks!

With a DVM (digital Volt Meter)

I assume you don't have one.

I made the mistake of measuring the output, it was 20V DC.

I thought that was ok. I took it into my local pc repair shop. he
found it wasn't working.

I read the label on the psu, it was supposed to be 35 V DC.

It was an HP laptop,

Thanks for all of you who tried to help me, but i found out the problem. The problem was with the AC Charger. The AC Charger's cable was damaged and it was unable to transmit enough electric to power up, run and charge the battery. I am now looking for a new AC Charger. THANKS GUYS! TAKE CARE!
