Your system will never start without a battery, so forget about that. it sounds like the battery may not be fully seated. Remove and reset the battery. Also, check for the connection pins- make sure none are bent or damaged. Good luck.

Charles - does the laptop have an alternate function button that allows for different displays? Similar to the presentation mode, this will manually tell the laptop to use either the native screen, an extension screen (the projector or monitor) or both. Typically this is triggered with the Function (Fn) button and maybe one of the F7 keys at the top. You'll see writing on it that will say LCD/CRT or have a little box like a monitor. Let me know if this helps!

Sounds like your Hard Drive is failing. You should back up your data immediately if you can and buy a new hard drive.

From what it seems since your phone also won't work with the hotspot, the limited is due to a problem with the hotspot itself. If you own the hotspot, restarting the router may fix the problem but if you don't own it, then either contact the administrator or find another access point to use.

Try uninstall and reinstall operation of the software suite and see if now works. If nothing, and it works in another computer then you have some sort of OS glitch that is preventing the proper install and operation.

I feel sorry to hear that.
This is the solution.
Some of these products having an unusual malfunction with their processing units (CPU) not because of the bad processor but mostly for its Capacitor malfunction which supports and regulates its voltage. I presume your laptop processor works on 0.091Volts to 1 volts that make this laptop slower. You can check by going through to the back of your laptop processor when you see this (NEC Tokin) part then you have to replace it with the new one or you can replace it with SMD capacitor.

Hope this will answer your question.

Open Task Manager (right-click on the taskbar), click "Show Processes for All Users", then sort the list of processes by CPU speed (click on the column heading to sort by it. click again to reverse-sort).

That should give you an idea of which program is taking so much CPU.

You should also look at the computer's memory usage (again, in Task Manager). If you're out of free RAM, then the computer will start "swapping" to the hard disk which can make a computer very sluggish.
