Does it take longer to shut down when it has been sitting a while?

When it shuts down, do all the lights stay on, or do they go completely out...

So, if you disconnected the power and left the computer sit for a couple hours and then went back, it would take less time for it to shut itself off?

Is your laptop under warranty?

When it is plugged into the computer, check it in my computer. It will tell you what it is formatted.

If it is formatted NTFS then you will need to format it to Fat32... right click on the drive in my computer and select format.

Check the box to "Restore Device Defaults".

Make sure FAT32 is selected and not NTFS.

Select OK

Hello AshleyBSticks,

I am sorry, apparently I lost track of your thread for a few days.

Have you tried anything else since your last post?

Sorry to dig up this old topic, but where do you get the bootable BIOS update? My girlfriend has a similar problem for a Presario CQ62-A10SD...
