Faulty Battery ¶ 

Confirm the power adapter is working. If problem persists, make sure that the adapter is connected to the laptop. If the computer only powers up when plugged in to the adapter, the battery is faulty. Consider replacement.

Hard-Drive Error ¶ 

Too much stored information on the hard-drive can cause errors and slow down the computer. Back up important files and then erase the information. Cleaning your computer is also advised for removing unnecessary programs. If problem persists, replace hard-drive with a larger storage capacity.

To replace hard-drive, remove the back panel. Locate and remove the hard-drive and replace with larger model.

Replacing HDD with SSD ¶ 

Before replacing the HDD, make sure that you have created restoration discs, otherwise you will lose all your old files when replacing the hard-drive. Carefully remove the hard-drive by unscrewing it and lifting straight up and unplugging the adapter. Replace the old HDD with the SSD, and return all parts to their original places.
