Hi! I just upgraded the U310 to Win10. The Battery Conservation mode was ON before the upgrade. After the upgrade it is still on. I installed the Lenovo Settings tool and tried to switched it off. After reboot all the options for Conservation have disappeared and it still won't charge above 59%. Please help, I'm stuck. WBR,Alex?

Any time I restart my laptop and I go to performance settings power saving mode is turned on. If i set to high performance, then it doesn't recognizing it and turns power saving back again after restart. If i change advanced settings under power saving mode and set everything to high performance, then it saves the settings, but there are no changes in use. Youtube lags when scrolling or when watching videos. What is the problem? Anyone had similar problems?

Hi,

I bought a new battery for my Sony Vaio (VGP-BPL9) about 2 months ago. It worked for a while, but all of a sudden my laptop would not turn on with my battery in there.

The battery is fine, it's new. How can I fix this?
 

A:Laptop will not turn on with battery

It could be that the Charger can no longer handle chrging the battery and running the laptop at the same time. But how have you confirmed that the battery is good? Just because it is only 2 months old? Or has it been tested in another compatible laptop to confirm this. Also did you buy this battery from Sony or some where else?

I have just received a replacement battery for my Toshiba Satellite L770 laptop which I purchased from a preferred seller on Ebay. When I put it in the laptop to charge and use the computer while it's charging, the computer will not even turn on. I contacted the seller and this is what he replied:

"We are sorry to hear that the battery did not work well. No problem for return and you will get a full refund if we receive your return within 60 days of the purchase date.

However, before the return please check the following:
1. Make sure that your power adapter and electric outlet work well
2. Make sure that the connection part between battery and laptop is clean. If not, please clean and try the battery again
3. Many new batteries need several charge to reach the full capacity. If it is a newly received battery please recharge several times to allow the battery to its full capacity.
4. If you recently upgrade your operating system to windows 7, it may cause the battery not charge. Please go online for a solution for your specific laptop model.
5. Please check your laptop manufacturer's website for a BIOS update. Recently a few customers reported that the Bios update solved the problem having with their battery.

If none of these steps works, please return the whole package to the following address by USPS Priority or UPS ground. And please include the order receipt or shipping slip in the return package. We suggest that you use a delivery confirmation to track ... Read more

Hi, my laptop (HP ProBook 450 G0) won't turn on without the AC adapter although the battery is charged (97%). When the adapter isn't plugged in, the adapter/battery LED (on the left side of the laptop) is flashing really fast (like 20times per sec). When I press the power button, nothing happens. When the adapter is plugged in, I can turn the laptop on. The adapter/battery LED is off, Windows say "plugged in, not charging". I ran battery test and system hardware test and everything's OK. I tried hard reset (pressing power button 30 sec) and it didn't help. Any advice? Thanks in advance

Hi all,

When you plug the power lead into the laptop, the battery light is lit but when you try to turn the laptop on it goes off- there's also a small clicking sound each time I try to turn it on. I've tried running the laptop without the battery and still no success. Also if you leave the power lead in the battery light goes off within a minute...I'm absolutly stuck with what to try next- I've used compressed air etc to try and clean everything out...still nudda.

Any help much appreciated!
 

A:Laptop wont turn on- dead battery?

Sounds like a failed HardDrive (if it is you will need it replaced)

Just in case though:

Remove all power (battery and adaptor)
Hold down the power ON button for 30secs (dispersing all internal voltage)
Plug the power adaptor in only (for the moment)
Turn on

If it still doesn't work, I think the HardDrive has gone (ie clicking noise)

Last week the fuses in my bedroom suddenly blew. At the same time I heard a loud crack and the smell of burning and smoke. Nothing was on fire so I thought it was something in the wall. I checked the fuses, turned them all back on and everything was fine. I went back to my computer, finished with it and turned it to sleep mode. When I woke up the next day it wouldn't turn on again. Everytime I press the power button I see the light by the plug flash 3 times. I've looked this up and tried removing the battery, draining it of electricity... I've tried everything but I only get those 3 flashes. Have I maybe broken the charger and has my laptop drained of electricity? I can't think of anything else, but that the burning smell might have been from the charger. Can I check this somehow?

What may be the problem?
 

A:Attached portable phone battery to laptop now won't turn on

try disconnecting the batteries and anything else connected to the laptop
then
Lets try doing a hard reset on the Laptop

This will work for Laptops that have a removable battery
Remove the Battery
Unplug the Power Adapter/charger
Now hold the Power Button down for 60 seconds - let go of the Power Button

Now Put back JUST the power adapter/charger back into the Laptop
Start the Laptop up
If it now Starts up OK
we know its working and can put the battery back in - But first we need to use the normal windows Shutdown on the Laptop, before we can put the battery back in.
So, run the shutdown , when the laptop turns off completely
remove the power adapter/charger lead again

Put the Battery back into the laptop
Put the power adapter/charger back into the laptop
Now see if laptop starts {sometimes batteries can fail and stop the Laptop starting}
If the PC starts OK with the battery , then all should be fixed

Recently in the process of upgrading my Dell laptop the plastic cover of the CMOS battery broke off. I held the battery back into the casing with a sticker tape. The system worked fine until I took the laptop to work some weeks after. At work I pressed the power button to turn on the laptop, but it wont turn on. Absolutely no sign of power to the system; no power led, no sound or feeling at all. When I noticed some noise inside the laptop, I opened it and behold the button CMOS battery was no more in place.

I got back home and I fixed the tiny plastic that holds the battery to the casing with a little epoxy adhesive, and used the opportunity to replace a new battery. After coupling the machine back the condition remained the same. Any assistance from this great forum would be appreciated to be able to get my laptop up and running again. Thank you all in advance.

I've read that the thing that destroys the battery fastest is overcharging the battery. That's why I want to turn it off. The only alternative that I have been able to find is unplugging the battery which means I have to restart machine from scratch, as opposed to waken it from sleep, every time I want to use it.

Is there a way to stop the battery from charging other than unplugging it?

Hi all,


I've been having a serious issue going on with my Asus K95V laptop running on Windows 10 Home 64 bit OS. It's been a couple of weeks now since this started and it's getting on my last nerve to say the least. I've been searching hard on the internet for an answer to this problem, seems like I'm not the only one having these issue's with an Asus laptop, bad news is nowhere I have seem to find an answer or solution to the problem.

This is how it goes. My laptop keeps switching from AC mode to battery mode when connected and plugged in. This happens when I start up my computer out of sleep mode. Then I have to unplug the power cord, if I do this it goes back to AC and everything seems to be fine, the battery is loading to the max but if I dare to put it to sleep, after getting it out of sleep mode again it goes back to battery mode as if it's not connected actually.

This seems to have started after some update for Windows 10, I can't tell for sure but I been having some other problems too since I did the big update to Windows 10. All I could solve but not this one ..... I'm pretty sure and convinced it's not a hard ware issue. Somewhere along the line searching there was this person that claimed it's a built in program bloatware type to inspire new sales, this person suggests to delete ATK, this is the program that supposedly controls your power supply.

Hi, So my Lenovo Thinkpad Carbon X1 (gen2) keeps switching between AC and Battery power modes. I have replaced the battery with a new genuine lenovo battery of the same part number. So I don't think it is a battery fault. I have replaced the AC power adapter twice (I have three power adapters now), so i don't think it is a power adapter fault. The laptop works perfectly without the battery plugged in, so i dont think it is a problem with the laptops internal DC power jack. The laptop works perfectly on battery with no AC plugged in, although I don't get the same battery life I did when the laptop was brand new, even with the new battery (maybe only 3-4 hours vs 7+ hours when it was new. While the laptop is running and the AC is plugged in this problem causes the battery to slowly be discharged and not charged, the laptop can be charged to 100% only when the laptop is shutdown. I have performed the latest BIOS update, all the latest Lenovo software updates, I have performed a Reset of Windows 10 both with and without user data, and I have booted into a Linux distribution and still have the same problem. I have tryed uninstalling all the lenovo drivers and software (including the power manager), and on one of the windows clean reinstalls i didn't install any lenovo software until after it was clear the issue was still present. I have disconnected the CMOS battery to reset the BIOS settings, I have pushed the hard reset pin on the bac...

Hi all,

I have an Inspiron 1525 that is one year old. Recently the battery will be completely dead when I try to turn on the laptop and will not power on unless I plug it in. The battery meter will be at 0% when it starts up, but recharges normally when plugged in. When I unplug the laptop and close the lid (which puts it into sleep mode) the battery will be completely dead by the next morning even if it was at 100% before I closed it. I don't know why the battery is discharging completely so quickly when the computer isn't even running.

Could this just be a problem with my battery? Or is the laptop not actually sleeping when I close it, but continually using up battery power? Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks
 

A:Laptop battery discharging when in sleep mode

Note there's a difference between "Sleep" vs. "Hibernation"
> Sleep mode still requires power (It should be minimal power but definitely still draws some power)
> Hibernation requires zero power

That said, i still wouldn't expect a good battery to discharge overnight on sleep mode so you probably still have an issue with your battery holding a charge

Unsure as to whether to post this here or in the hardware section, but since this might be a software problem I figured I'd try here first.

I have a Dell l702x which has an SSD for the OS and some programs and a normal HDD for generic storage needs.
A few months ago a strange and annoying problem started occurring, in that whenever I put the laptop into sleep mode, either by closing the lid or by choosing it from the start menu, 9 times out of 10 it will begin going into sleep mode, the screen will go black/turn off etc. but the mechanical storage HDD will not spin down and turn off, locking the laptop into this neither on nor off limbo state. When this happens the only things I can do are: hold the power button to force shut down, remove the battery, or let the battery run dry. The next time I power the laptop on I'll be greeted with the "you didn't turn your computer off properly" screen.

I figured this was a problem with the HDD itself, as it was a few years old and was giving me other warning signs that it was on the way out (such as labored clicking and grinding noises when made to do extensive data transfers). So, I saved a bit of money, bought a new HDD (even a different manufacturer to the original, a Western Digital instead of seagate) copied my data to it, installed it, only to discover that the problem STILL exists, sleep mode is still unusable to me.

I can imagine that reinstalling windows will probably solve my issue, however since it&... Read more

Hello everyone.

A few hours ago my computer was in sleep mode and unplugged when the battery died. Upon plugging it back in, I was met with an empty black screen. I turned it off by holding the power button, but the laptop refuses to boot now.

Upon turning it on, I get the Toshiba start up screen for less than a second before it goes to the Windows Error Recovery Page. Both options (Launch Startup Repair (recommended) and start windows normally) results in a screen that says 'windows is loading files...' with a status bar, then moves on to another screen showing another status bar (this one green with the microsoft corp at the bottom but no graphic) and ultimately to a black screen with a white cursor. From there, nothing works. The same happens if I try to start it in safe mode (with or without networking).

I have a system repair disc for the laptop but I haven't been able to do anything with it.

Fortunately 99% of the info on the laptop is backed up. Unfortunately the 1% that isn't is the most important (class notes for the last 4-5 weeks).

I have the extended warranty on it from best buy that actually expires in 4 days, but I certainly don't want to ship off my computer for who knows how long with those files on there.

Any advice would be tremendously appreciated.

Here's my example:
I have a laptop running Windows 7, I have disabled Hibernation mode.
I put the laptop into sleep mode, and during that time the battery drains completely.
What happens with the save state information that was stored in RAM memory?
I have read on a blog that Windows will automatically switch to Hibernation mode and save it to a local HiberSys.fil, but will that still happen if Hibernation mode has been disabled?
And is the process the same for Windows 10?
Thanks in advance for any information you guys can offer on this situation.

Hi!

I have lenovo ideapad g585gc 59-356202 e1-1200, dvdrw, 4gb, 500gb, radeon hd 7310m, 15.6" led, ....
Almost 2 years old.
Yesterday it didn't want to turn on, and then I took out the battery and try without it and then turned on and everything is ok.

So,
1. with battery (with or without ac power) won't turn on
2. without battery (of course, with ac power) turn on

The problem is evidently in the battery. I want to buy a new one, but how can I be sure that the battery is really dead?

A:Lenovo won't turn on with battery, without battery turn on!

There are no good practical ways the average owner can test the battery. You have to go on the evidence.

In tha past, I was able to view pages I had visied by selecting "Work Offline" from the File menu of IE6 and then typing in the address. When I was not connected to the internet, I could freely browse through pages I had visited as long as the Temp Internet files were still stored. However, now I must select "Work Offline" every single time I want to do any sort of offline browsing, i.e. click on a link that connects to a a stored page, type in the address of another stored page, etc. Why is Offline mode constantly switching itself off?

So I have already tried the solutions such as boot up the pc and press shift and such to get a menu and then download somthing on a usb and get into an administrator account.The Administration account I can at least log onto as it's not password protected but I still can't turn on Wi-Fi which basically defeats my whole purpose of using the computer as I use it for gaming. So regarding me not being able to log into my actual account, I've tried resetting my password multiple times without success. I think it's due to the fact that I am not able to connect to any Wi-Fi spots (which I assume is because of safe mode which I can't turn off for some reason) And that brings me to my next point, of I can't connect to Wi-Fi die to safe mode. I have tried to turn off safe mode in the settings but when I press the button for it to turn off it slides back over to the on side. Please let me know if you have any other solutions that I have not tried yet, Thanks !
