Q: Calibrating Notebook Battery Terms

Hello,

I'd like to "CALIBRATE a new battery for an HP notebook.

What is the differences in the Terms: Full Hard Disc Test and Hard Drive Long DST Test?

In the BIOS Menu I did not see the term Full Hard Disc Test. I'm running the Hard Drive Long DST Test now. Is this correct? is there any harm in Calibration using this test?

Thanks again,
Raphael

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.)

Hello,

Moved from Hardware Forum

I'd like to "CALIBRATE a new battery for an HP notebook. Why? because when I was playing a YouTube video directly from the new Battery after it was Fully charged..the video would not play in a most healthy way. I checked the BIOS and it has the latest from the HP website.
When I plug the computer with the AC adapter it plays healthier.

I assume as [any] Battery loses its charge that it might cause some issues..Correct?

My wife has a two-year-old Samsung notebook. Recently when she unplugged it the machine cut off, even though the battery said 79% charged (it wouldn't charge any further). I figured that the battery was bad so I bought another one from Amazon.

This one charges to 100% percent and does exactly the same thing. I'm perplexed but think there's something going on with the motherboard that won't let it use battery juice, even if Windows 8.1 says it's 100% charged.

I've tried the hold the power button down for 1 min with the battery out trick to no avail.

Any ideas? I'm stumped and think I might need to get her another notebook.

Thanks, Robert

In cooperation with various government regulatory agencies, HP has announced an expansion of its June 2016 worldwide voluntary safety recall and replacement program for certain notebook batteries. Additional batteries are affected. The affected batteries have the potential to overheat, posing a fire and burn hazard to customers.
 
Because affected batteries pose a fire and burn hazard, it is essential to recheck your battery even if you did so previously and were told that you were not affected. Note: if you have already received a replacement battery, you are not affected by this expansion.
 
To recheck your battery, and order a replacement if eligible, go to the HP Battery Recall website at: http://www.HP.com/go/batteryprogram2016

How to calibrate the Microtek scanmaker 3800 scanner. And what is the use of calibrating and when calibrating should be done.
 

A:Calibrating Scanner

If you want to use the little slide and film adapter that came with the scanner you should use the calibration utility with it. That is all it is for as far as I can tell.

I think the results might just be a little less crappy after you run the utility. I have a 4900, which is true 2400 PPI (2400 X 4800) and the results from the film and slide adapter are still poor. Fortunately I have a dedicated film scanner and donít need it, but I would be a little disappointed if I had bought it to scan film.

Can someone tell me about notebook batteries. I leave my battery in the notebook all the time I am currently just using it home - so I am using the ac adapter. I am currently using several hours a night working on a project for work. Will this decrease the life of my battery? Should I take out the battery until I need it? And would you recommend a extended warranty. The salesman told me it covers the battery, lcd monitor.

A:notebook battery

normally from my experience, the way the laptop will work is that it always uses the battery and when you plug in the adapter this just charges your battery as you use it!
So the laptop wont work without the battery in!

This in the long run will decrease the battery but no more so than it would in normal running situation.

Depending on what you plan on using the laptop for and ofcourse how much the laptop costs and how much the extra warrenty is!

If you need anymore help give us a shout

Bought my HP laptop about 4 years ago.  The battery is completely dead, but I use the notebook plugged into AC all the time anyway.  My question is:  Should I remove the battery and just leave it out permanently or leave it attached?  I always use it at home plugged into a power source, so don't even need the battery.

Does a notebook battery lose charge even when the machine is turned off?
For example, it was at 100% when I turned it off and removed the AC adapter.
Less than 24 hours later, I turn it on, and the battery indicator says 65%.
I've only had the laptop for a week, and this is the second time the charge has significantly decreased while off. The first time, the battery was completely dead after being fully charged, removed, and not used for 2 days.
Another time, I charged to full and rebooted. The battery showed 95% upon restart. I can't believe it would use that amount to power up.
Is my battery a dud?

When I bought this laptop a few months ago, the salesperson advised removing the battery when operating with cord plugged in. She said it would cut down on the heat generated.  I wonder if this is advisable.  If I remove the battery, I'll lose whatever I'm working on.  I have noticed that it gets warm, but not terribly so, and inconveniently, the vents are on the same side as the mouse. Where I live, it's not unusual for the power to flash off for a second or two if a storm is coming.  We have most of our serious electronics plugged into backup batteries, just for that purpose.  Unfortunately, we don't have one for the laptop yet. I wonder if anyone out there has thoughts on this issue?  I would appreciate the feedback.

I have a brand new Compaq Presario 906 Notebook. It's a pretty nice machine...but it fails to accomplish the one thing notebooks should -- run off the battery.

No matter how long I charge the battery using the AC adapter, the meter in the system tray always reads between 15-20%. Also, if I unplug the AC adapter while the notebook is on, the power immediately shuts off. Curiously, I can sometimes turn the power on when the notebook's unplugged, so the battery doesn't appear to be completely useless. Even then, however, it never lasts more than thirty minutes.

Also, is there anything special involved with removing a laptop battery for examination,etc? Or does it just slide out?

Where do I start on this problem? Thanks for the help.
 

A:Notebook Battery Madness

Usually there is a button or a catch that releases the battery and it slides out. A new laptop should not have a defective battery, I would return it or ask for a new battery

While using my notebook on battery it crashes. There is no BSOD and I need to plug in to AC and turn back on.

When I turn it back on the battery level can sometimes be at 41%. It does not give a warning or noise just switches off.

I have tried to follow some of the previous posting instructions but not been able to work out the problem. The battery check says 100% and I have used compressed air to blow out the vents.

The notebook is 18 months old, I have extended warranty but if it is the battery I assume it wont be covered.

If not, then you can either take or send it for testing, or replace the battery.

Hi

I have an HP 530 notebook PC running Windows Vista Home Basic. The problem is if I unplug the the mains adaptor, the machine just cuts out after a few mins - no warning, no self shut down, nothing. Just dead.

It's not an overheating problem as you can leave it on for days and will work on mains. Even if you start it from cold on battery, it will die in a few minutes.

The battery appears to be charging normally and is nowhere near empty when it cuts out.

Not sure if it's maybe a software problem?

Any thoughts welcome!

Unfortunately batteries don't last forever. If you have recently bought this laptop then you may be able to do something under its warranty. If it is a few years old or out of warranty then you can buy a replacement battery.

-can the notebook still power on with only the power supply plugged in, minus the battery?
thanks for the help.
 

A:can notebook pc function without a battery?

Yes. I run my notebook without the battery on AC most of the time at home. Keeping the battery away from heat will lenghten battery life in the long run. I used to keep the battery in while on AC and battery life was less than a year. I now leave it out and the battery is still good over a year and a half coming up to two years old. Most laptops today are well built, especially Fujitsu, Acer and Asus. A Fujitsu laptop has been up on Mount Everest. Some laptops have a slot loading CD/DVD tray (trayless). But I never had a problem with trays with the 2 laptops I have owned. If you are concerned about durability outdoors then consider the Panasonic Toughbook series which are used by the military in Iraq.

Hey,

I bought a 12 cell HP battery off of ebay (it is not a battery made by HP). Now this is a great battery which lasts me between 5-7 hours.

Now it does last 5-7hours, but I have issues getting the battery to power the computer on.
I first place my 6 cells battery which was made by HP and power on my computer. When the 6 cell is dead, I try to replace it with the 12 cell but the 12 cell won't power the computer on. When I place the AC adapter into my computer, it turns the laptop on. I can take the AC cable out of my computer and the 12 cells keeps the computer powered for 5-7 hours. I can shut my computer off and the 12 cell powers it back on.

The only time the 12 cell can't power my computer on is when the 6 cell is in there previously. What is wrong, and how do I fix this?
 

A:Odd notebook battery issues.

Simply don't use the 6 cell. If you really need a back-up, buy another 12 cell.

My year old Averatec c3500 notebook was stored for a couple months. When I started it the main battery was empty (of course). and the clock icon showed time/date that was way off. I considered this probably normal.

Now when I store the PC for even three days the clock needs to be reset, although the main battery seems to still have at least a negligible amount of power left (will show a short slideshow of photo's.)

I have two questions:
1. Is there a small CMOS battery that might need replacing ? and does that battery get recharged from the main battery? Where would that be located ?

2. What is the best way to refresh my main battery? I have opinion if I totally discharge/recharge it will come back to total storage.

Could there be any other possible hardware piece inside of laptop that would not allow battery to charge ?

A:HP notebook battery problem

That's an older model notebook, you could attempt to call into hp and see if someone there will run a "battery Diagnostic" test. IF your out of warranty.... they might want to charge you. Dont pay for it.

You could also try to see if an update is available for you BIOS, this could also cause "low battery life" on an already fully charged battery

With your machine running XP, im not sure if yours had it then, search the computer for the HP total care advisor, if you have that, run a battery check in there, it will let you know if it needs replacing.

This one has dogged me relentlessly.

HP Pavilion G6 notebook with Windows 8. System works flawlessly on the software side, the hardware, however-

The notebook recognizes the adapter about 60% of the time. If the battery is fully charged the adapter will usually be recognized, but if the battery is low it seems not to. Sometimes if I leave the adapter plugged in for an extended period of time (like overnight) and come back the power jack light will be on and working.

If I plug in the adapter and remove the battery it will switch over seamlessly, but if I replace the battery it won't recognize it.

Trying to boot without the battery works about 40% of the time. Generally I get 3 blinks of the light which suggests a RAM issue according to HP's website. But I've replaced the RAM several times to no effect.

I've swapped chargers to no effect.

I've replaced the jack in the notebook to no effect.

I'm considering a battery replacement, but it charges fine and lasts about three hours (so far) WHEN the charger is recognized.

Am I missing something?

and yes.... the battery does work. The display even dims a little when I unplug the ac adapter.

any ideas?

Hey all, over the past few months I've been having a little bit of a problem with my Gateway Notebook's Battery. Whenever I plugged it in to be charged, it would only charge after I jiggled the plug which was inside the notebook a little bit. That was ok, but today the problem finally came to a head. After I left it alone to be charged, I came back to it and tried to unplug the adapter from the computer so I could move the notebook, but the plug into the notebook would not come out of the back of the laptop! I don't know what's wrong, but it is impossible for the plug to come out no matter how much force. I really don't know what's going on, but can anyone give me some pointers/guidelines? Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

A:Notebook Battery Problem

Not uncommon, the early symptoms should have been heeded.

The problem is likely to be a poor/broken connection where the power adapter socket connects to the motherboard. That has now overheated due to the resistance of the joint and high current flowing and welded the plug in.

It needs expert attention, as it is easy to destroy the motherboard at this stage if it is not too late.

Do any of you know what the typical overall battery life for notebooks are?

I'm having an issue with my Sony VAIO notebook that I purchased in 2001 where, despite it being fully charged, it only lasts for about 10-20 minutes off of the AC Adaptor. Must I simply buy a new battery or is there a problem with the notebook itself that requires further attention?

If a new battery is a must, any preferences among you (seeing as how you are all far more knowledgable than I)?

Battery life

Battery life per charge obviously various a lot between machines and the sort of usage it has. Around 2 hours should be expected. My Thinkpad does nearly three hours on average.

A:need a replacement for my notebook battery

Lots of "compatible" replacement batteries on eBay India: http://www.ebay.in/itm/Hako-Laptop-battery-for-HP-Pavilion-Sleekbook-14-1000-14-2099-695192-001-/322155524629?hash=item4b01f73215:g:56IAAOSw3YNXZEIH I could not find an original genuine battery on any of the India sites I know of. The compatible batteries are very attractively priced and generally reliable. I still try to buy genuine if I can for newer model laptops but have purchased compatible batteries quite frequently for older laptops where cost is an issue and have generally had a good experience.
