Update the touch pad driver:

Click "Start",then enter "Device Manager", find the touchpad driver and right click, then select "Update".

3. How to increase physical memory

3.1 System type

The system has 32-bit and 64-bit type. You can right-click on "this pc" to select "properties". The 32-bit system supports up to 3.2G computer memory, while the 64-bit system can reach 128G. So, the computer is a 32-bit system. When installing a memory stick more than 4G, you must reinstall the 64-bit system. If not, even you add more memory is also a futility.

3.2 Can I add more memory to pc?

Many laptops have a sealed bottom or memory soldered to the motherboard,both of which prevent you from upgrading RAM.


Before buying a memory stick, be sure to check if your motherboard has extra memory slots. Normally, you will have 2 memory slots. You need to check if both slots are occupied.

If there is only one memory slot, then upgrading the memory requires replacing the original memory stick and purchasing a larger memory stick, which will cost more.


If you have trouble removing and disassembling the memory, you can also check the number of memory slots on the motherboard through the "CPU-Z" software.


3.3 Memory parameters

When purchasing a memory stick, in addition to paying attention to your own computer system and hardware, you must confirm the memory parameters of your computer.


It is best to purchase the same parameters when upgrading the laptop memory stick. Of course, almost all DDR4 now, so if you should focus on the memory frequency.


If you are adding a memory stick to your notebook, you also need to pay attention to the memory voltage, memory has a standard voltage and low voltage,and the same as the CPU. The new memory voltage must also be the same as the old memory, otherwise, there may be problems that the motherboard does not support.


Part 2: How to expand the memory on Huawei

Notebook disassembly (general considerations for laptop memory upgrade)

1. Turn off the notebook and unplug the power adapter.


2. Open the bottom of the notebook and check the memory module.(Depending on your notebook model, you may have to unscrew the back of the notebook to remove the memory and other components)


[attachimg]14647[/attachimg]


3. Avoid static electricity

However, before touching any component in your PC, touch any metal surface inside the computer (for example,the back of the hard drive or the metal connector of another laptop component).This will release any potentially static electricity in your body. Or wear anti-static gloves for disassembly.


4. Remove the memory stick

If you need to pull out some memory module, you can replace them. To remove the memory module, push the clip that secures the clip open. The memory module should be ejected at an angle. Note that it shouldn't remove the memory module force, which may damage the slot.


[attachimg]14648[/attachimg]


Hold the edge of the memory module - Do not touch the gold connector on the bottom to lift the module.


5. Install a new memory stick

Next, insert the new module into the open slot at a 45-degree angle with the gold edge facing down. Use your finger to push it into place at a uniform pressure on the top of the module.

When you hear the click and feel the memory stick snap into place, push the module firmly back until it is flat and level and the clip is securely fastened.


[attachimg]14649[/attachimg]


Start the laptop and return to the "System properties" or "Task Manager" to verify that new memory has been added.

How to Fix the Service Battery Warning on MacBook

Macbook Air (2012) the battery icon shows "Service Battery". The number of charging cycles in the system information is only 150 times. What does service battery mean on MacBook?

It usually means that the battery is running out (or use more than recommended number of cycles). Either way, you may need a new battery.


[attachimg]14611[/attachimg]


If your battery is running out of life, you won't have any problems with a battery that has no capacity. Therefore, if you are not accepting the short battery life, please replace the Mac Book battery.If you are satisfied with it,please continue to use the battery.


According to Apple, MacBook Pro or MacBook Air batteries are designed to provide up to 1000 full charge and discharge cycles of their original capacity.

After installing Mavericks, the"service battery" warning seems to be wrong or the operating system is more sensitive to potential battery problems.


The charge cycle count is a count of the number of times the battery is fully drained and charged. If you don't drain the battery before recharging, you will easily reach the limit of the cycle number designed by the MacBook. In other words, you may see Service Battery warning on macOS.

Before replacing the MacBook battery, it is recommended that you try the following troubleshooting to fix the service battery warning caused by MacBook software.


How to Remove Service Battery Warning MacBook Pro?

1. Check system report

When you receive a "Service Battery" notification, the first thing you should do is to check the system report. This will tell you the number of cycles and condition of your MacBook battery.

1. Select the Apple menu (the Apple icon in the upper left corner of the computer) and select "About This Mac".

2. Select "System Report..." and then select "Power".

3. Check the "cycle count" of the battery.


[attachimg]14612[/attachimg]


2. Reset the charging cycle

2.1 Charge the battery fully.Once charged to 100%, keep the notebook running for hours while connecting the power.

2.2 Unplug the MacBook from the power source, but let it continue to run.

2.3 Allow the MacBook to run until it is turned off due to low battery.

2.4 Place your MacBook one day without power.

2.5 Charge the MacBook again until the battery is full.

Your MacBook should now be able to measure battery status more accurately. If it works, your MacBook service battery warning disappeared.

If you still see the Service Battery message, continue with the following troubleshooting.


3. Reset the SMC

The system management controller manages battery power. If it goes wrong, it can cause service battery messages on MacBook. In this case, you can reset it.

3.1 Do this if you can remove the battery from your MacBook:

3.2 After the MacBook is turned off, press and hold the power button for 10 seconds. After that, insert the battery and you are done.


If the MacBook is built-in battery:

If you are unable to remove the battery, turn off your MacBook. Then, press Control + Shift + Option and hold the power button for 10 seconds. After 10 seconds, open your MacBook.

SMC controls computer fans,back lights and indicators, port and battery, so resetting it will force your MacBook to restore to the default settings of all this hardware.

This issue should be resolved if the hardware status causes a service battery warning.


If you have tried to calibrate the battery and reset the SMC and MacBook display the service battery warning,then you have only one option left: replace the MacBook battery.

Of course, if you don't want to pay for expensive repairs in the apple store, then replacement battery yourself is the best option.

How to Find Replacement Screen for Laptop

I Need to purchase laptop screen from reliable source. I have a HP Envy 15t-k100 CTO with screen B156HTN03.3. I have purchased 3 from Amazon and each time screen was defective.

How can I find the best place to buy laptop screens?


Before Replacing the Laptop Screen:

Before doing anything, check your laptop to make sure which screen component needs to be replaced.

Correctly identify the parts of the screen and purchase what you need.


The Difference between the Laptop Touch Screen and LCD Screen of Laptop:

The touch screen is a transparent layer that reads signals from the touch and transmits them to the processing unit. This is the outermost layer of the screen, you can touch the part without disassembling the device.


The LCD screen is a panel inside the screen for displaying images.

This is the middle layer of the screen.


[attachimg]14608[/attachimg]


When only the touch screen is broken, you still can see what is happening on the display and the screen is still running.

When only the LCD is broken, you can still use the touch screen, but the panel will have dark spots or spiderweb cracks (or both).

When both the LCD and the touchscreen are damaged, you may no longer be able to use the laptop screen.


Detect Possible Damage to other Components:

For example, if the graphics card on the motherboard is damaged, it is useless to spend time and effort to replace the screen.

To ensure that your graphics card is working properly, you can connect external monitor or TV to your laptop:

If the picture on the external display looks normal, it is likely that your notebook screen is broken.

If you don't get any picture on the external display, keep in mind that some laptops require you to press some of the function keys on your laptop to activate the projection output.

If you do not get any from external screen and laptop screen, your graphics card or motherboard may be damaged, not only the screen.


Find Part Number of the Laptop Component:

Before purchasing a laptop screen replacement, you need to determine the part number on the back of the screen.


[attachimg]14609[/attachimg]


This is another reason to open the laptop screen bezel before buy replacement laptop parts.

Even if you have the specific model of the laptop that needs to buy the screen, but the same model of the notebook may have a different resolution, confirm the unique laptop screen PN to ensure that you can buy the correct screen.

But based on my experience, you can consult the GEMWON laptop. According to the information provided by the seller, if the screen is compatible with your laptop model, it usually works.


Cheap Laptop Screen Repair Near me:

Finding a replacement screen is usually easy - you don't have to pay the original price from the manufacturer.

Just search for eBay, Amazon or Google using your laptop model and screen part number. You will find that replacement screen for laptop can be as low as $20.

If you can't find anything, you can also contact GEMWON to purchase a hard to buy and vintage laptops screen wholesale. It can provide all the screen components you need.


[attachimg]14610[/attachimg]


Try removing the damaged screen to make sure you can replace it.

To save the laptop screen replacement cost, I suggest you search in Google and YouTube to get repair guide of your laptop or find a service professional to get help with the laptop repair steps.


How to Fix a Broken HP Laptop Screen:

These applies to most laptop models.

Desk Area: Find a flat area for your laptop.

Magnetic Philips screwdriver: If you don't have a head screwdriver, try to find a magnet that is enough to magnetize the screws. This helps making it easier for the screw to be removed and replaced without lost.

Spudgers and repair tools: Opening tools helps to pry the screen border away from the body.

A piece of white paper: This is used to store the small screws and you can mark the position on the paper to identify the position of each screw of the notebook to prevent the wrong screws when reinstalling the parts.
