Q: [t440s] Internal battery discharges first then shu...

Hi, I am using a t440s thinkpad with Arch linux installed on it. The external battery was working fine at first but recently it refuses to discharge first. The internal battery discharges then shuts the computer down when its empty leaving the external battery at full charge. Running acpi -V on my computer it outputs the following: Battery 0: Unknown, 100%
Battery 0: design capacity 6039 mAh, last full capacity 5672 mAh = 93%
Battery 1: Discharging, 98%, 02:16:50 remaining
Battery 1: design capacity 1924 mAh, last full capacity 1767 mAh = 91%Battery 0 is my external battery and is labeled as unknown. I updated the BIOS to the latest version and this did not fix this issue.

Hi everyone, Title says it all, I know this topic of discharging internal battery first has been brought up a lot, and that the reason behind it is this: The T470s are designed to drain the battery with least wear first so as to degrade both batteries equally and prolong the laptop's overall battery life. However, as I'm using a new 61++ battery, clearly somethig is going wrong somewhere as the year old internal battery cannot be in better condition than the brand new external.https://gyazo.com/6c12f3f40514599d04d852a8589189ab Any ideas? Thanks!

My T450s has recently started discharging the internal battery first rather than the removable battery. I can't recall when this started to happen but I think it happened when I updated the BIOS to the latest version currently available. Anyone have any insight if this is an issue with other models and a fix? This is rather annoying. I have updated all of the other drivers with the System Update utility from Lenovo. Machine Type: 20BW

Hi All, I just got my T440s a couple of weeks ago. I stupidly ordered it with only 4GB of RAM, thinking that I couple upgrade it myself if neccessary (and it would be much cheaper that way). Well it seems 4GB definately isn't enough for my needs, so I ordered another 4GB stick. I installed it, plugged the machine in and powered it up. And was met with the tone for a memory error. Probably the module isn't seated correctly, but I suppose it could be faulty. Anyway, you'll notice I said that I plugged it in before powering up. That means that the internal battery has been reactivated. I can confirm this because it will start (and give me the error) without being plugged in and without the external battery connected. So my problem is, how do I disable the internal battery again to remove or reseat the problem DIMM, since I can't get to the UEFI/BIOS configureation to disable it. Please help.

Dear fellow owners, I have a t440s, with a really bad sounding fan (grinding, shaking), so I decided to replace it. I ordered a replacement part, and I took the old fan out to make sure nothing gets damaged. After doing so I realized I forgot to turn off the internal battery before messing with the system board (disconnecting the fan). Do I have to take action before installing the new cooler? Obviously I won't turn on the system without any kind of cooling on the cpu (or should I, to go into bios and turn off the battery?) but I'm wondering if I made a mistake by forgetting to turn off the battery. Should I be worried about it, or I can just install the new fan as soon as it arrives and forget about it? Thanks.

Hi there, I've got an Alienware 15 R2 that I bought 2 years ago. Everything worked fine until about 6 months ago when the battery began disconnecting and rapidly discharging (about 2hrs from full to shutdown) whenever I open any games.
I've searched everywhere for a solution. Diagnostics show battery health to be fine, I've tried different charging cables (mine is currently 240w and was the cable I received with the laptop) and I've attempted to reduce all processes to the bare minimum.
My fiance and I bought a matching pair of laptops and the other seems to work without issue. The only notable difference we've found was my BIOS having been updated recently while the other is an older version.

I have a Toshiba P25-S509 laptop that's a few years old but still runs pretty good. The problem that I having now is that it seems to only run on battery even if the AC adapter is plugged in. This is one of those 10lb giant laptops that was marketed as a desk top replacement. That was a joke and I fell for it.
I get about 50 minutes of run time and have to be religious about recharging. I purchased another adapter/charger and a new battery and the problem still exists. Strangely enough however, once in a while I'll see the charging light come on while it's running and i will think that my problem is solved but it doesn't last for long. If any one has any advice on how to fix this situation I would appreciate it. I may have to get a new laptop and I can assure you that it will not be a Toshiba. I would also appreciate any recommendations on a good reliable brand.

Thx in advance,

VC

Hi

My NB520 has recently developed a problem.
It was working fine and i charged it up to 99% then when i removed the charger, a message appears saying ''0:05 of battery remaining (99%)'' and then ''computer will suspend very soon unless it is plugged in''.

So even though it is registering the 99% charge it thinks there is only 5 minutes of operation time left.
Is this a battery problem or a motherboard problem?

Thanks

A:NB520 battery discharges very quickly

Hi

For me it looks like a battery malfunction?maybe you could try to calibrate the battery several times in order to increase the performance but not quite sure if this would help in this case?

To calibrate the battery you should discharge the battery until it would be fully empty. Then charge it again until the battery indicator would switch to blue or green (this depends on model you have).

If this would not help, I would recommend testing new battery.

Hello,

This laptop is about four and a half years old and recently the battery has started acting up. The battery discharges from a full charge in about 15-20 minutes.

Another problem I had with the battery was a 601 error at bootup - I got this error in the BIOS screen and it states that the battery has fallen below its optimal charge capacity.

I managed to "fix" this problem with a BIOS update. I then ran the powercfg utility and it shows that the battery is charging fully,

So can anyone tell me why the battery is discharging so quickly? Am running Windows 7 Home Premium in Power Saver mode and nothing is running in the background, and the only apps are a couple of browser windows.

Hello,  I bought this model of laptop 2 weeks ago and I found out strange problem, which I also found on HP forum, so definitely it is serious issue - every second or third day (at least for this first 2 weeks of using laptop) my laptop's battery is arround 5% discharged during night. To be precise, when I finish my work at night (during work power jack is plugged in and battery is 100% full), I completely shut down laptop (Windows button/Power/Shut Down, so no hibernation or anything similar, just standard shutdown of device) and I unplug it from electricity. When I power on laptop in the morning the battery is around 95%. So, basically during night while device isn't working at all it still somehow drains for around 5% . I am afraid that if I don't solve this problem it will get worse and worse, and after couple of months of using, battery can discharge even more during night.  As mentioned before, I am using Windows 10 64-bit system. I am also using my old laptop and this situation has never happened during many years of working on it. Looking forward to hear from you.

This is simply to explain?.
The display needs most of the battery power and if you close the lid the display would be off and would not use the battery power.

In your case I believe that the battery is to old in order to run much longer as 10min?

My new Toshiba Satellite Z830 10J ultrabook with Win7 64bit,. all updates, works fine and shows no deficiencies, there is however one strange exception.

When the battery is fully charded and i "pull the plug", the system runs on the battery for sometimes more than 5 hours, so i assume the battery cycle is ok.

When the battery now is fully charged again and i SHUT DOWN the system and do not use it for a few days,
then the battery is totally DISCHARGED to 0% and the system will not boot, until i plug it in.

This phenomenon occurs in less than a week. So: charging the batrery to 100%, switching off the system, pulling the plug, wanting to re-use the system after 7 days, yields to 0% battery charge.

Is there any specific reason for this?

greetings

Hello Roland

It is well known that battery looses capacity over night or after few days but maybe several percent or maximal 20% but it is not known to me that battery will be complexly empty.

Is some external device connected to USB ports when the notebook is off or notebook is placed on the desk without any connected devices?

Please enter also BIOS settings and disable every option that can be related to this issue. I don?t have this new notebook and BIOS is not known to me but check please all BIOS settings. Disable wake =up on LAN or USB sleep and charge.

My old original battery discharges in 30 minutes and I purchased an original new one from Toshiba authorized dealer in Croatia.

After several days of charging and discharging, the new genuine Toshiba battery discharges 1.5 hours of normal use without powering any external devices nor optical drive.

Toshiba specification for this model of Portege states that battery should last approximately 4 hours.
How I can get the battery replaced when local dealer stated that he can not guaranty battery life and that the new battery came directly from authorized Toshiba parts distributor in Europe?

A:Portege M700 new genuine Battery discharges in aproximately 1.5 hours

> After several days of charging and discharging, the new genuine Toshiba battery discharges 1.5 hours of normal use without powering any external devices nor optical drive.

The battery should be calibrated properly. This means that you should charge and discharge the battery until it?s fully empty. This should be repeated several times?

Furthermore the battery working times depends on notebook usage? using notebook with max display brightness or running applications which needs full CPU, GPU and HDD performance would decrease the battery working time.

I have a Flex 3 that is only 4 months old and notice that even when the laptop is totally off (powered down, no lights on, not hibernate or sleep) after a day or two the batter charge upon bootup has gone down significantly. I am talking a reduction of say 40%. I am under warranty and I have to run this "Battery gauge reset" routine and do a few other checks before they replace the battery.  Although I can't imagine how looking at windows power options can impact what the battery draw is while the unit is OFF and windows is not running....but guess they have to go through their script. Anyway my question is on this Battery Gauge reset.  I have read things where this takes all night or something and people have to turn sleep mode off on their laptop? That is not in the official instructions so for those that have had this issue or run the reset do you just "press the button" or do I need to make sure the laptop stays awake.Also, what is it actually doing?? Is this type of battery drain a known issue?  To me it sure seems like just a bad battery....Thanks,BJBBJB

Hi everyone, I'm trying to figure out if I have a unique problem, or whether this is a broader T440s problem. Occasionally, especially when my T440s has gone to hibernation from sleep, I cannot turn on the computer unless I plug it into the wall. That is to say, when I hit the power button when the computer is unplugged, NOTHING happens. I've tried holding the power button down, pressing it repeatedly, removing the external battery and then pressing the startup button, etc.  If I plug the computer into the wall, it starts up fine and shows that there is sufficient battery life. This does not happen consistently, and is difficult to repeat. For example, the computer went into sleep the night before traveling. I tried to start it on a plane flight (domestic, thank god, so it wasn't a huge issue, but if it had been international that would have been a disaster) and it simply would not start. Later, on a train, I was able to plug it in and it started with no problems and showed plenty of battery life. I then put it into sleep, it went into hibernate, and I was able to start it up without being plugged into the wall when I returned home. Has anyone else encountered something similar? Are there settings I can change, or should I have it sent in for repair (also, what on earth might cause this problem? Faulty power button?)

This is what happened to my T420.  Just about drove me nuts.  Since it would start in one power mode but not the other that proved that it couldn't be the button, right?  Another mod with more sense suggested replacing the keyboard anyway.
 
It was the power button.  On careful visual inspection I could see that it was slightly depressed from normal.  Either partly shorted or high resistance.  Plugging in the AC mains must have changed the voltages just enough for it to work.  Sometimes, anyway.
 
Not saying this weird problem is what you're seeing - but it might be.
 
Good luck,

I have a T440s which I bought in July 2014. It is out of warranty. Lenovo companion reports my "primary" battery is "BAD" but says absolutey nothing else even though it reports a full charge. In fact the lenovo battery icon in the corner of my display shows battery is green and 100%. I'd like to understand whether this battery is bad in the sense that it should be removed from the computer immediately, or whether it has detected that it is no longer holding a full charge and could be left there. I am almost always at the desktop in a docking station so I don't need the full charge.
 
I don't understand why all they report is "Bad". Any suggestions as to how I might find more or if it is just reporting lower capacity and nothing more?
 
Also, it was kind of confusing which battery they meant when they said "primary" is bad. I could see an argument that either is the primary battery. Better to have used the terms integrated and removable. I removed the removable battery and reran the test to determine the primary battery is actually the integrated battery. I think the service person said the opposite.
 
The lenovo companion page that reports the battery is BAD has a link for more information and it goes to a general lenovo webpage that has nothing to do with support. They are trying to get me to apply for a lenovo credit card I think. Its so disgraceful how they dropped the ball on this one.

I have performed a battery reset in the battery management section of the power manager, but nothing changed.When the display brightness is set to 0, the screen is actually still on (not so bright) but still on, and it's a way too much for me if I use my t440s during the night time.

Please, tell me can I still use it without problems when plugged in. If no, then how to replace it . Thank you

A:internal battery 601

Hi, Just to clarify, the 601 error relates to your notebooks main battery ( not the rtc cell on the system board ). If you're happy with running the machine on mains power full time, there's no issue with that and you can simply remove the battery. If you do want to replace the battery at some time, you can order a new one through HP Parts Store or ( and often less expensive ), just google the full Model No. of your dv7 series notebook including the term battery. Regards, DP-K

I have an old (1996?) Amstrad with windows `95
I now have a new computer and would like to give the old one to my daughter,but....
Does anybody please know where the internal battery is situated? My screen was telling me to change it. I have it in pieces on the floor and I still can`t see it! Help.

It will be somewhere on the motherboard. It's a flat round battery like those in a watch only larger. On some older PCs, the battery is soldered to the motherboard so you may need to take it to a shop to have it replaced if that's the case.

Nope. You have to open the case and take the battery out to replace it

I am trying to replace the internal battery in an old P486. The only info I have on the motherboard is, MB-65-P486-BI0t. I can not find the battery to replace it. The motherboard appears to be manufactured in 1996. Can any one help. The closest thing I have found to a battery is a 2 in oblong plug in that has "green pc function" written on the top.

Hi Becky, welcome to TSG.

Have a look here to see if we can't ID your motherboard...I can't find anything with that number.

Okay, so I've been having a few programs with my computer...this including slowness, poor wifi connections, and odd performance of wacom tablets.

The problems with a tablet are described in more detail here--> http://www.sevenforums.com/drivers/1...ml#post1658350

Recently, before I signed into windows, a message on a black screen popped up stating something about my internal battery needing to be replaced. I'm on an HP pavilion laptop // HP pavilion entertainment PC.

Could the problems I mentioned above be related to the battery? I desperately need to be able to use my tablets for my major in college, and are majorly concerned with how they've been acting poorly with my laptop...could just replacing the battery work?

Also, would the 'internal battery' still be the battery that is capable of being removed from the laptop? Or does a laptop of two batteries?

A:"Internal battery" notices..what problems could a low battery cause?

This is the CMOS battery it is talking about. It should be replaced asap. But this is not a do it yourself job in a laptop. Better have some expert deal with it.
