No Low battery warning, Just turns off.

Q: No Low battery warning, Just turns off.

I been recently having this problem where my battery run low and instead of warning me it turns off. What should i do ?

Preferred Solution: No Low battery warning, Just turns off.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: No Low battery warning, Just turns off.

Replace the battery. They don't last forever and this is what happens when they die.

I strongly recommend getting the OEM battery and not a cheap chinese knockoff. I never take chances with ink/toner and batteries. The real deal or nothing.

1. Laptop turns off without any warning, when the battery is low. There is no "low battery" indicator or anything of that sort. The laptop just turns off. This has been happening for over one and a half months now.2. The battery also lasts lesser time than what the battery indicator indicates (MUCH lesser). It has been a little over 2 years now since I purchased this laptop. Ofcourse it depends on my usage. But the battery indicator should suggest reasonably sensible "lasting" time right?

Hi, There seems to be a problem with the power management on my T570. I have two batteries, and I think the main one to be used is the battery 2. Sometimes, I'll be working unplugged, and my computer randomly turns off. Not the usual "Windows turning off" sequence, but an immediate blackout with no feedback. When I turn the computer back on, I see that Battery 2 is at 0% and Battery 1 is now in use. It does seem to be a problem in the power management, no? Thank you,Fred

A:My computer turns off immediately when Battery 2 reaches 0%, even if Battery 1 is 100%

Sounds like power management or battery reporting status wrong.  Are you still under warranty? If yes, call support first.  Can you get (borrow) another battery to try?

Hey there,
I've been using my upgraded Inpiron 17R SE happily for a couple of years by now. I've even gone as far as buying an 128GB SSD to futureproof it. This is the only drive - besides the DVD drive - currently present in the laptop. However I've had an issue for quite a while:
Whenever I try to boot the Laptop only using the Battery (even fully charged) it Posts then loads Windows and turns of just before the Login-Screen (I can't see it). When I proceed to turn it back on, it Posts then beeps and says that there is a Real Time Clock Error and gives me the option to proceed booting or to enter Setup.
This however doesn't occur when using the Power-Brick. Moreover it isn't always the case. Sometimes the Laptop boots and works fine just using the battery, but then upon opening a Programm (while under battery-power) it shuts of and gives the same error message again. If it decides to work the battery still lasts for 2-2.5 hours.
I'm really confused to what the problem is. It could be a power delivery problem, but it's still the original battery and laptop with only the HDD changed to a SSD.
I'm aware of it being a rather old machine, but selling it is my only hope for getting a new laptop for college, but I can't sell it in this state. 
I'm at a lost and really really sad because of this issue. I'm sorry for any typos or grammar mistakes, I'm a non native english speaker.

Is the battery OEM or an aftermarket battery?  How old is the battery? I know of Windows 7 OS having issues with recognizing some batteries and were relatively easy to fix.  I do not know if it carried over to Windows 10.  I will have to look up the article to find any relevance.

A:PC Turns off without warning very often

How is the air flow?

Did you put any thermal compound between the CPU and Heat sink? To much or not enough?
If you put too much on the core, it can act like an insulator and actually cause temperatures to rise.
If you really go overboard and get it all over the rest of the CPU, there is a small chance that it could short the traces on the CPU.

Is everything tight and snug?

Well I've just spent the past hour or so trying to chill out and relaxing by trying to play some Call of Duty 2 on my laptop computer. "Trying" is my key word here, because for whatever reason or reasons the darn thing in game, is turning itself off without warning!

I get about 2-3 maps into the game, which is approx. something like 30-40 minutes in and the thing shuts itself off. I know for a fact this isn't an issue that my laptop's hardware is bellow the requirements for the game.

Toshiba x-205 dual SLi
2 Nvidia GeForce 8600M GT's 256MB's each
Intel Core Duo T2800 @ 2.8 G's

I'm well over in almost every area the games requirements, but even with that the game or the computer shuts itself off. I'm thinking this could be heat related! I've got the thing resting atop a nice dual fan laptop cooling tray, I did notice possibly one of it's exhaust vents might have been blocked a little by a printer I had stationed pretty close to it. I moved the laptop away from that printer, about another 2-3 inches or so and try'd the game again, same thing, about 30 minutes into it the thing shut itself off.

Upon firing it up again, I ran the stock Toshiba diagnostic tool, no problems detected. I then checked the hard drive, no problems found. I then ran CCleaner and checked the registry, no errors found. Lastly, I went ... Read more

Hello All,I am having an issue with my HP Envy Touchsmart Sleekbook 4-1115dx. When on battery, my computer shuts down without warning at around 40% - 50%. I rechecked my power options and they are set to send me notifications of low battery and to hibernate, not just shut down. When I turn the computer back on connected to power, the first page it shows is "Choose your keyboard layout", which I don't know if that is usual. I have done the HP Support Assistant Battery Check and my last test status was: "Calibrate (20)". To calibrate it wants me to charge my computer to 99% - 100% but my computer only charges to about 94%, so what do I do? I have also run the battery test in using HP System Diagnostics and the result was "Calibration Required (20)". When I selected the option to calibrate the battery it took me to a screen where I could select "Start Battery Calibration" except my mouse or touch pad or touch screen wouldn't work at all on that page. I pressed esc and it was fine again. I also read a thread on hear about resetting BIOS and that didn't work either. So how do I calibrate my battery? Can you do so if your computer can't charge to 100%? And has anyone had a similar issue?

A:Computer Turns Off at 40% With No Warning

Hello there, Battery callibration :  Charge the laptop's battery to its fullest and use the Laptop while it completely drains out the battery, in such a way that the computer is shut down completely. Repeat the above process a few times, in order to successfully callibrate the battery. Also, update the BIOS on the Notebook. Please find the link to update the BIOS. http://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/identify?q=HP+Envy+4-1115dx&tool=s-002#Z7_3054ICK0K8... Choose your appropriate product and the operating system.Install the BIOS update, and keep the charger plugged in thoughout the process.  And again, despite the above steps, if the issue still persists, please uninstall the Battery from the device manager and check. If nothing works again, please call our technical support as our experts are eager to help you.   Cheers!

My computer boots up and runs fine for several minutes to a few hours then all of a sudden the monitor screen goes black and (if it is on the screen) the mouse pointer gets big. I have to reboot and then sometimes it will work fine for as long as I am using it. Sometimes it does the same things several hours later or several minutes later. In other words I have not been able to establish a pattern for when it happens. Anybody have any ideas what may be going on?

A few days ago my computer was turning off abd giving me a message re: thermal issues. So, bought thermal paste, cleaned the exixting paste and put the new paste. After that was done the computers keeps turning off, but it does not give me that message anymore.
Does anybody has any idea as to why this is happening?


A:Computers Turns off without warning

Your computer may be overheating. Your CPU fan may not be sufficient for your processor. Or It could be your power supply. Does your computer turn off and come back on, or does it just crash and stay off? There are a lot of things that can make your computer crash. Did you make sure to not put too much thermal paste on? Also, you could have put too little of the thermal paste on. Does your computer run for a while before shutting down or does it crash as soon as you turn it on? Look in the download section on here for a temp monitor. Use a couple different temp monitors to see if your computer is overheating.

I recently replaced the BIOS battery in my 8 year old PC, which I pulled out the garage after 2 years. When I first switched it on I got the warning - no big surprise given the age of the PC. I did ask how fresh the battery stock was when I bought the new battery, and was assured it should be fine.

Having replaced the battery I'm still getting the message about low battery voltage. I think it unlikely the new battery is faulty (but have no way to check it)...any ideas?

The PC is a Dell Dimension 8300 running latest SP of XP if that helps



A:[SOLVED] low battery voltage warning - new battery!

Googling 'Dell Dimension 8300 low cmos battery voltage warning' gets some historical (and hysterical in some cases) anecdotes about this issue.

I'd suggest you power off, pull plug, press and hold the power button for 3 seconds, open case, pull cmos battery, clean cmos battery socket with a q-tip and some isopropyl (a SMALL amount), allow to dry, wipe battery contact surfaces CLEAN, reinsert battery, close case, plug it in and power up.

Hello. I have a 3yr old Toshiba Satellite laptop that I use every day, on avg. 8 hrs per day for school. The battery used to last about 2.5 hours without needing charging. In the past couple weeks, it only seems to last about an hour before needing to be charged.

Even more troublesome is its action when the charge is gone. I have set the power settings to pop up a notification message at 22% battery level and take no action, then at 10% battery level, pop up another message THEN go in to hibernate. However, last week it would give me only about 20 seconds' notice of a critical battery level, then it would hibernate. It wouldn't give me any notice before the critical level.

Now, it has taken to just hibernating, with no warning notice whatsoever. I could keep it plugged in all the time, but my concern is there's something more at issue that will get worse over time. I don't need any crashes at finals time.

Any suggestions? Could the battery need replacing? Thanks.

A:Battery drains in 1hr; No low battery warning before hibernate

Li Ions really start to lose capacity at 2 years. By 3 years, they can easily be at 50% of their original capacity.

I'd go for a new battery.

Hey guys I'm new to the forums but hoping you lot can help

I recently upgraded my gfx to a gtx 260 zotac synergy edition from a 9600gt
all was going well until roughly last Sunday, I was playing dawn of war 2 and the pc turned itself off, I figured must be a one off, turned it on everything worked fine, the last few days though whenever I try to run a game of decent quality (e.g gta4, mirrors edge, mass effect, even l4d1) the pc turns off after a few minutes playing.
When I run normal programs such as the Internet and streaming videos the whole system is stable and runs fine, just when gaming it goes off, I'm stumped to be honest it may be a psu failing or the motherboard I'm not sure,
Atm I'm running 2sata hdds,4gbs ddr2 ram, a q9450 @2.66 and the 260gtx, psu is a xpower 580w sli ready, if anyone can help it would be gratefully appreciated

A:PC randomly turns off frequently without warning

Well, this generally happens for 2 reasons:

1.) High temperatures. Check your GPU and CPU temperatures and ensure that they are within their rated / acceptable limits.

2.) Power surge and lack of power protection device. Recently I removed my UPS and connected the PC to a cheap surge suppressor. I had exactly the same issue as you are having now.

So HP laptops have a tendency of overheating... and when they do, they power off immediately. This is NOT that issue. When I'm working solely on my battery (no AC charger) My laptop will turn off in maybe 45 minutes... I keep an eye on the battery level and it never drops to below 20% when this occurs. The laptop isn't burning hot and no error/warning messages are displayed (and no beeps).... Just poof power off. Ive downloaded the newest HP support assistant and ran the battery test and it said it was fine.I've tried to the manual calibration (since Support assistant isn't giving me the option to calibrate it) where I do the diagnostic logic (F2) and run the Hard Drive test on Battery until the laptop dies... Plugged in the charger and restarted.. what do you know, battery was at 40%... on the battery battery level button is showing half-charge.... So what do I do when the laptop is saying battery is good - not replace... How do I force that calibration? Something is wrong in that the power is dying half-way through the power cycle. Apprecaite any advice!

Hello,  I've had a problem with my 500-14ISK where the screen will instantly turn off when running on battery. This happens in the bios and withing the OS.  As far as I can tell it is not just dimming the screen/backlight. It is slowly driving me mad not being able to move around with a laptop. So far I have tried the following.  Reinstalled Windows 10Updated Intel and Nvidia driversUpdate Intel ME softwareReinstalled latest bios (D3CN35WW)Rolled back to all previous available bios versions (D3CN28WW, D3CN34WW, D3CN35WW)Downgraded Intel & Nvidia driversDowngraded Intel ME SoftwareBooted to Debian live disk to test same behaviour. Tried a different chargerSearched the many forums posts with people that have similar issues, saying to try a linked Intel ME version or trying new windows profiles even though this happens outside of windows. Let the battery die completely Turned on conservation mode for the battery with the AC plugged in. The screen then turns off as it tries to run off battery.Ran the Lenovo system update toolsRan the Lenovo diagnostics tools. All OK.Searched the Lenovo Reddit subreddit to see other people with similar problems and no answer. Have I missed anything?  I can't believe support for a product can just blankly end like this when it can be seen that a continued number of people are having a problem with the laptop which still falls within EU warranties.

I have an XPS 15z. About a month ago the battery stopped charging and after some quick googling I determined it was likely a charging jack problem. So I ordered a new one from Dell via Amazon (my laptop is several years old and no longer under warranty), and in the meantime used another laptop. Today finally had free time to install new charging jack.
Good news - the new jack works! Bad news - the laptop will only turn on if the battery is disconnected. If I try to power on with the battery connected, the charging light on the laptop flashes red (usually signals low battery/not plugged in), the laptop makes a brief startup noise, and then dies. This happens even with AC adapter plugged in. With AC adapter plugged in but no battery the laptop turns on normally. I've tried discharging static (unplugging battery and adapter and holding power button for 10 secs) but this does nothing.
Any ideas? Would a connected dead battery prevent the laptop from powering on? Did not using the laptop for several weeks do something to the battery? Any help/suggestions would be appreciated, thanks.

Without the battery, with the ac adapter connected power up the machine, post powering on connect the battery, let us know if any changes with this procedure. Also check if the battery charges. If yes, then update the BIOS from support.euro.dell.com and let us know how it goes.  
Check in BIOS the status for ac adapter and battery as well and keep us posted.
Do try this battery on another machine if feasible.

Whenever I unplug my computer from its charging cord it automatically turns off. I was having this problem before, but replaced the battery with a brand new one. It was working fine and I broke in the battery by charging and discharging it fully for the first 3 cycles and the laptop was working well without power for the past week since I got it, other than taking a minute or so to respond to me pushing the power on button before working when it was not connected to the cord. Now this morning it switches off whenever I unplug it even though the battery says it is at 100% charge and still charging. But, the light on the side of my power port is on red/orange when I have it plugged in, but only when it's lid is closed and it is fully booted up. I checked on other forum answers and tried changing to different power saving plans and even switching all options to 'never' but nothing has worked.I also looked at the pins underneath my laptop where my battery should go to see if they are damaged. Two of them are on a different angle to the rest but I think this is how the laptop was built anyway? I dont want to move them incase it just makes the situation worse.What should I try next? I would like this fixed ASAP as I need this laptop for school and often don't have access to a power plug in class. Thankyou.

My laptop keeps turning itself of when it is on battery. It lasts about 20 minutes, but is getting shorter everytime.

The battery is not running out- when I turn it back on it has 50% charge normally.

It turns off as if it has no power- no warning, and when I turn it back on it reloads and everything is new, with documents and Internet sessions needing restoring.

How can I fix this? I don't think it is the battery, as it has charge when I turn it back on, and it only has 20% wear.


A:Laptop Randomly Turns Off When In Battery

Welcome to TSG!!

If it's truly random, it won't be the Power Management settings. Some laptops have a utility that enables you to "calibrate" your battery. It will fully charge, then fully discharge the battery, perhaps more than one cycle, to allow the laptop to "learn" the battery's capabilities and characteristics. Check and see if you can find such an app. Different manufacturers will give it different names. Also, check their Web site to see if it is a separate download.

This problem started 3 weeks ago.

When battery charge reaches 100% the AC LED indicator is turned off and the laptop runs from battery (decreasing it's performance even selecting High Performance power plan).
If the AC plug is disconnected and reconnected the AC LED indicator is turned on until battery is fully charged again, as soon as the battery is fully charged windows battery notification icon changes from "99% available (plugged in, charging)" to "Fully Charged" and then the AC is turned off and the laptop starts to run from battery again.

I didn't update any laptop specific software nor BIOS.

Hello guys and girls,

I have an issue since some times that I really don't know how to solve.
In November 2013 I bought in Poland, where I live, a nice TOSHIBA SATELLITE L50-A-16Q (PSKJNE).
On this computer, although, something is constantly causing me problems: *very often the power shuts down suddenly while on battery*, even if the app "TOSHIBA PC health monitor" which also monitors CPU temperature, does not show any sign of criticality.

However, there is something abnormal going on: I have noticed thanks to this software that, every time I unplug the charger, the fan speed goes to zero, apparently putting the system cooling at risk. And I know from the manual that if the processor temperature reaches a critical level, the system automatically shuts down.

Is there anyway to fix the problem in order not to shut it down suddenly, making me lose data while on battery?
Maybe turning on fan speed, somehow, while on this mode?

Thank you every one very much for your contribution, in advance.

Kind Regards,

Hi Matteo

On this virtual way it is not easy to say what is wrong there. It would be interesting to know exact battery capacity when this happen.

Using advanced power options you can change many important values so I recommend you to test all this. Try to use notebook with power saver power plan and lower CPU activity.
I don't know if the CPU or any other hardware component reach critical temperature level but please be careful how do you use your machine. Cooling fans must be free and your notebook must be able to ?take a breath?.

Try to test usage with different power plans and using it on the desk only, not placed on the knees or your bed.

By the way: cooling fan activity can be defined in advanced power settings > Toshiba power saver > cooling method. Check it out.

Stupid Stupid Laptop Battery

Hello, Two weeks after my one year warranty was up my laptop started shutting off when the battery was around 30-40%.  I checked the battery using the HP Support Assistant Diagnostic Check and it continues to say the "Primary battery is OK."  I've also noticed that since this started happening the battery won't fully charge.  It only charges to 90-94% then shows "94% available (plugged in, not charging)."  I used to unplug the battery until the battery saver (set at 20%) would turn on then I'd fully charge it and repeat.   I use my laptop for work so I'm usually plugged in 8-14 hours a day for five days a week.  I shut it off every night as well.  Am I missing something or is this the battery life I should get?  Did I use it too much?  I purposefully got a long life battery because for work. I found the article below which sounds similar to my situation and wanted to ask anyway. https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/HP-Pavilion-15-notebook-sudden... This is my first HP and I didn't have battery issues like this with any previous laptop doing the same amount of work/usage for at least 2+ years.  Is this the way HP's are?  Am I supposed to expect this type of performance out of my laptop? Thanks for any help/suggestions/words of wisdom.

I kept getting the Error message:  Low Battery Warning   Replace your wireless keyboard battery.  I replaced the batteries and kept getting the same error message.  I finally replaced the keyboard with a USB connected keyboard.  I took the batteries out of the wireless one.  However,I am still getting the same message.  I went to devices and deleted several keyboard drivers,but it did not solve the problem.

A:Low Battery Warning

Is that the originally operating system installation? You might consider going to a command line and running the system file checker. Operating systems do develope issues after extended periods of use.

I have Vista Home Premium 32-bit. The computer manufacturer says that keeping my laptop plugged in after it is fully charged will ruin my battery, so I unplug & run on the battery once it is fully charged. My problem is that the only warning I get that the battery is low is a teeny-tiny yellow flag next to the power options icon in the notification area at the bottom right of the screen. This is very easy to miss. I am tired of my computer shutting down while I am in the middle of something. Is there a way I can get a pop-up warning that my computer is going to shut down? I am a novice, so please go light on the tech terms. Thanks.

Hope This Helps,

I just bought on Ebay a replacement battery because my original Dell battery doesn't last long anymore. It is Identical model and every word on it is exactly the same wording as the one I'm replacing. I bought the battery because I want to sell it and I wanted the battery to be new for the person who buys it. Well now It gets the error warning in the first 2 sentence of my message. The ebay guy even sent me another one still identical as my original one and it says the same error. It does seem to charge but no one is going to buy it with that error that pops up when you turn it on. I upgraded the laptop to windows 10 and I don't get that error with original battery so I am stumped. Any help for me out there

I have an old Latitude E6230 and has for years been annoyed with the malware Dell ships that pops up the "Your battery is able to charge normally. However it is reaching the end of its usable life" (and similar) warnings. I started getting these messages when I had typically around 7 hours of battery time, the following more severe message when I had 4 hours of battery time, and the "has reached the end of its usable life" when I still could get 2 hours.
This has been reported several times in this forum but the most common solution ("Dell Battery Meter") does not work, instead they have hid the disable option deep in group policies (en.community.dell.com/.../19317355)
So Dell is obviously trying to get me to buy a battery I don't need just to get rid of the annoying popup, and made it very difficult to disable. I.e. it's a malware, and most of all it's highly disrespectful to their customers.
My question is, does Dell still ship this with new computers? The battery has survived the rest of the computer som I'm looking to get a new computer rather than buying a new battery. I will not support this kind of behaviour so I'd like to know if Dell is still an option.

Hi.  When I'm working on my Flex 3 on battery only, after about 20 minutes, the screen will "turn off."  I use quotations because the sreen turns black but it is back-lit.  Sound still works.  No buttons get me out of this frozen state and I have to hard restart the computer. Anybody else have this issue?  Computer is 1 month old. Thanks!

A:Flex 3 screen turns off when working on battery

I have exactly the same problem. Works fine when plugged in, but absolutely useless on battery, due to this random "black screen". My screen too is backlit, but the only way I have found to "wake-up" the screen is to reboot the computer. My Flex 3 came from Costco, and I am planning to return it.

A:Dv7-3165dx Laptop turns off unexpectedly when battery is low

Ok I think I finally figured it out by changing the power options and I think the way you told me to reset the battery also helped. here are the settings: reserve battery level (this is when the popup will come up.)10% low battery level (this is when the low battery action will be performed.)8% critical battery level (my comp would die at this point.)7%  low battery action: sleep, sleep (customize this to your liking.) low battery notification: on,on (keep this on.) critical battery action: sleep, sleep (my comp would die already at critical.)

Yesterday, I spilled a little bit of coffee on my laptop. It got on a few keys but not a lot at all. It worked fine, then I didn't use it for a few hours. Went to go do some school work and it wouldn't turn on and hasn't turn on since. When the charger is plugged in, the light comes on and it charges but no other lights come on and the computer won't turn on. I tried a hard reset but that didn't work. I really don't want to lose everything on my computer, I need it for my classes. I took it to my colleges tech department and they cleaned it and said there didn't seem to be water damage to the motherboard so i'm not sure if he just missed it or if something else is the problem.

Notebook batteri is finished. After some secs the display turns off (notebook
is connected to kabel power).
If the display is closed down, and opened again, the display turns on again
for some secs, and turns off again.
Hitting the batteri icon, which is always red crossed, windows prompts
that batteri has low performance and the computer may shut down anytime.
But the computer doesn't shut down, the display turns off.
Running the computer without the batteri doesn't work, the above happens.

Dear all,
Few months ago, my laptop got an issue with OEM battery and it was out of warranty period.
I bought a new alternative battery and installed it to my laptop. I ran all diagnostics and there were no problem found.
At full charge, I unplugged the AC power and my laptop turned off randomly.
I tried to turn it on again, it only loads until Windows log-on screen and turned-off.
I started again in Set-up mode on battery and ran diagnostic from DOS environment, there were no problem detected.
Again, started Windows normally, but it turned off at Windows log-on screen. 
If I connects it with AC power, I will see battery at more than 95% or even full-charge.
Do you have any idea or suggestion to solve this problem?
I am using the Windows Fall creator update with a new installation.
Hope to have your help! Many thanks!
