New OEM 9-cell & 6-cell batteries causes laptop to suddenly shutdown with full charge

Q: New OEM 9-cell & 6-cell batteries causes laptop to suddenly shutdown with full charge

Hello Everyone! :-) This is my first time posting at this forum. I have a Lenovo T520 laptop that is experiencing intermittent problem shutting down when I am trying out brand new 9-cell and 6-cell batteries that are fully charged. Based on the seller instruction; they said to go into the bios to see if there is a battery resync option and/or charge the battery with the laptop powered off for a minimum of 10hrs before using the new battery. I followed their instructions but the laptop continued to suddenly powered off while I am using it with a fully charged battery. Has anyone experiences similar issues and know of any troubleshooting method or fixes? Of course I first naturally expects the battery to be bad, but I bought 2x 9-cell batteries, the seller then send me an additional 2 x 6-cell batteries because I am having problems with the 9-cell. The 6-cell also resulted with the same symptom so I find it hard to believe that all 4 batteries are bad. Here is the info on the batteries I purchased: https://www.ebay.com/itm/9Cell-Battery-for-Lenovo-ThinkPad-T410-T420-T510-T520-SL410-SL510-E420-E425... Thank you in advance for anyone that can help me to resolve this problem. Best,Vinh Le

A: New OEM 9-cell & 6-cell batteries causes laptop to suddenly shutdown with full charge

Hello and welcome,

I can't say with certainty what is going on - but those aren't OEM (Lenovo) batteries. They are unbranded generics from who-knows-where.

I'm always suspicious of non-OEM batteries and their internal control electronics.

My computer is an HP Pavilion dv6t-7000. I purchased a 9-cell battery as second battery and I switch it out from time to time with my other battery. I have never had a problem with it charging or keeping a charge. Suddenly, I find that it won't charge above 47% of capacity. Only two of the four LED lights on the battery will light up. It charges up to 47% and stops. It will show that the unit it plugged in but not charging.  If I was seeing a degradation of the battery over time, I could accept that, but this happened suddenly. Any thoughts or suggestions?

Hello Geoaddict, Thank you for posting on the HP Forums! I understand the battery will not charge to 100%. To start, please try Testing and Calibrating the Battery. You should be able to find out if the battery has any issues.. If the battery appears to be fine, you can try to improve your battery performance.  For more information on improving battery performance, please review the following document: Improving Battery Performance (Windows 8, 7, Vista). If none of this helps, you can try purchasing a replacement battery if the computer isn't in warranty. If it is, you should be able to get a replacement over HP phone support.

Someone needs to get a new battery for a very old laptop they have. The battery doesn't work so they have to have it plugged all the time otherwise it wouldn't work. Laptop is 15.6 and sort of heavy but the thing is they never take the laptop outside the house. It will mainly be used on one floor in the house.


100% of the time the laptop is used in the kitchen area where there is a table where its connected using a charger to the wall. Thus if the person had a working battery, they could carry it around the house even though the laptop will stay in one place usually. However because right now the battery doesn't work, it does but it goes out very fast less than 1 minute, they need a new battery.


Is it better to get a 6 cell or 9 cell battery? The laptop will be used at home 100 percent. The thing is this person said if 9 cell last longer, get it. However, im sure 9 cell batteries make the laptop much heavier and has that back part sticking out right? I know this isn't a big deal if you going to stay inside but wouldn't it be a problem/annoyance if you have the laptop on yourself when on the sofa? Does the 9 cell would be really heavy on an already heavy 15.6' laptop?


Also 6 cell batteries last for around 2 hours i believe. How many hours does a 9 cell last for usually?


The thing is majority of the time the laptop will be plugged in but its very annoying at the moment as the laptop has to be connected 100 percent of the time since the battery is no good at... Read more

A:6 Cell Vs 9 Cell Battery for Laptop?

It's a piece of hardware so you're in the right area.

I have a Dell Inspiron N5010 that has a 48WattHour battery. A 9-cell battery would give longer working time when on battery-only so if it is offered and the price is affordable I'd get it.

As for physically working, it may lift the back edge of the Notebook higher but that's not a problem, usually have rubber feet on them. I find that type of rise is actually easier for typing as most Desktop keyboards have feet to raise the back edge, fingers seem to 'flow' better.

I have a sheet with 2 simple columns: Date and Price. I have imported the dates (##/##/####) and the prices ($###,###) by copy/pasting from the search results given to me by a niche database program I use. When the cells paste in, they all have the format "General".

When I try to format the "date" column into dates, it _does_ change the format as far as the cell is concerned, but the content of the cell doesn't adapt to the new format. For example, I have the date as 3/05/2001 and when I change it to a date format of MMM D, YYYY the content should change to March 5, 2001 but it doesn't. It is as if all the cells are forced to stay as text regardless of what the formatting is that I'm applying.

Same problem with the price column: if I change the format to include 2 decimal points, that format does apply to the cells, but the content of each cell remains without a decimal or anything following, as if the content is just text.

I have like 1000 rows in each column, and plan to do this analysis of the database's results frequently, so I'm hoping the answer isn't just to retype the data. There's got to be a way to copy/paste or export or something. Maybe I could copy/paste into notepad first to scrub out any formatting or locking from the niche database program?
 

A:Excel 2007 Cell Values Won't Take On Characteristics of Newly Applied Cell Format

Good news: Made some progress. In thinking that maybe each value had the textual single-quote forcing it to act like text, or maybe if I find/repaced all the dollar signs and commas that had been imported, I accidentally discovered that each and every value in my imported columns has a following space!

Bad news: Seems like Excel has a bug that thinks that if I say "Find=[singleSpace]" "Replace=[null]", then I should be given an error saying "Excel cannot find any data to replace". I think I'm doing the find/replace correctly because it worked on the dollar signs and commas.

Anybody know a workaround for the bug?

Hi Tech teams, I went to the lenovo site to customize a T440S Thinkpad and got stuck at the REAR BATTERY selection. I have searched in google and the site and could not see the picture difference's between 6 Cell Li-Ion Cyl HC Rear (72Wh) and 6 Cell Li-ion (47Whr) Cylindrical. I know those will be large and will bulge out of the laptop. But I would like to understand in which way and want to see the pictures of the laptop fitted with these 2, so that I can proceed with my order. Will it come out like a cylindrical bulge at the back of the laptop or at the bottom it will have an extra step like thing. Why dint the lenovo put 3 different pictures showing the laptop with these batteries in the "help me decide" option while customizing the laptop. That would have been very nice to the customers. I have wasted 2 hours to compose this and search everywhere, without any resolution. I found a similar thread in some forum, asking for the pictures, and no one replied him as well.

I'm working on a spreadsheet at the moment which displays a range of cells all containing values referenced from another spreadsheet (within the same workbook). This system works fine.

Every day, the original worksheet is updated. So, it has fields already arranged up until the end of the year. A row for every date. Now, needless to say, rows for dates in the future contain no values, and so when the spreadsheet I am working on now references those cells, it displays "$0.00" (which is correct, given I am dealing with financial figures).

Now, all of that works as expected, however, on the spreadsheet I am working on, all of those figures are displayed in a line graph. This line graph, at todays date, shows an enormous drop given that the fields for the rest of the year all show a zero balance.

What I need to do, is to get the remainder of those fields (every field that says "$0.00") to not display anything at all. So, if the value is $0.00, it would not display a value at all, and therefore not show anything on the graph.

Can someone tell me how I can achieve this? I'm sure it can be done with an "if" statement, but I'm not sure how to structure it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm attempting to write my first macro for an Excel 2003 workbook. I'm not completely code illiterate (I've got moderate skills with AutoLISP), but I'm new to VBA and am not yet an Excel power user, so please be gentle.

The macro I want to write will:
check that the selected cell's content is underlined before proceeding
copy the content of the currently selected cell into an external plain text .log file
.log file lines should be: year/month/day - time - username - cell contents
.log file names will probably need to be generated
clear the cell's content and formatting (particularly underline and text/background color)
Here's what I have so far:
Code:
Sub Unpost()
If Selection.Font.Underline = True
Then Selection.ClearFormats And Selection.Clearcontents
Else
If MsgBox("The selected cell is not underlined...are you sure?", vbOkCancel) = vbOk
Then Selection.ClearFormats And Selection.Clearcontents
Else Exit Sub
End If
End If
End Sub
If I've written it correctly, it should currently do everything except log the cell contents. This, from what I've seen, is going to be the trickier part. I intend to use this macro 50+ times per weekday, so at some point the .log files will get too long to be useful, so I assume it will need to automatically create new logs (perhaps "year-month.log"). I've seen some useful info about appending to an external log here and here, ... Read more

Hello,

I cant seem work out a solution for what I'm trying to do. I have an Excel workbook that has multiple sheets. On sheet 1 i want the data from cell "G3" to be copied onto sheet 2. But i want the location on sheet 2 to be based on whatever was entered into cell "D3" on sheet 1.

For example: Sheet 1, cell D3 I have the name John, in cell G3 i have 68. I want "68" to be pasted in sheet 2 in cell B26.

But if the name in Sheet 1 cell D3 is Suzie, then I want G3 to be pasted in Sheet 2 in cell D26. So I would need to identify the paste location for each person.

I want the data to paste to the next cell so that the next entry can be pasted below the last entry for that person (for John the first entry would go into cell B26, then the next entry would go into cell B27 and so on).

But i want it to be a specific range, i dont want data to be pasted past 20 cells (cell B45). If possible a message box could be created to let the user know that the max is reached.

I would appreciate anyone's help with this as i have been struggling for awhile to try to get this. Thank you

Very limited experience with Excel...have a multi page workbook but can't figure out how to auto format existing text to fit in cells so there is no space either on top or bottom of the cell.

Only way I can get this so far is to manually move the bottom line of the text box up to the bottom of the actual text in box. But this causes the print out to overlap sometimes of the text lines in print view.

Is there a way to 'auto-format' individual cells to fit the text in the cell without leaving alot of space above or below the lines, or top/bottom lines, of the cell.

A:Having problem setting cell height to fit text in cell

When you are in the cell that you want to align with the top, Right Click & select Format Cells & when that opens Click on the Alignment Tab & then you will see Horizontal & Vertical, click on the Vertical drop down arrow & select Top. That will align the text to the top of the cell & eliminate that space.

When you move to the next cell to insert the Dollar amount it will be lined up with the bottom of the text in the previous cell, which is what you want.

Hi Lenovo experts - I am having a strange issue with my new X270 laptop. I have been using it for over 3 weeks now. The X270 came with an integrated Li-Ion 3-cell battery (23 Wh) and also an external Li-Ion 3-cell battery  (23 Wh). With very light usage (just outlook and office apps) and brightness set to 25%, I can barely get 2h-2.5h of battery life. Is this normal? Per the PSREF, 3+3 cell should give me ~13h of battery life.  Anything else I can check? I did a 'battery report' and I see on average 45 Wh of charging capacity when active. However 'Battery life estimates' show between 2h-3h at full charge. 'Current estimate of battery life based on all observed drains since OS install' is showing 3:50.  Do I have a defective battery?

Use absolute instead of relative references, ie:

EDIT: better explanation. You have 5 in A1, and the formula =A1 in B1. If you copy B1 to C1, C1 will read =B1. But if you make B1 =$A$1 and then copy it to C1, it'll hold.

I have an Excel 2010 workbook comprising a simple organization membership list, consisting of names, addresses, etc., for nearly 2,000 members, grouped into 5 chapters' sheets, in a single Excel 2010 file. Every time I sit down to enter updates for any member, or add new members, etc., I always start by saving my most recent version of the workbook with the date I last updated it in the filename, and then when I finish my updates for the day, I save the current day's updated workbook with the current day's date in the filename, etc. So after a while, I've got quite a stack of versions of the same workbook, albeit with slightly different data in some of the cells, from version to version.

Near the end of the year, it'd be neat to be able to compare the beginning and end of year versions, cell by cell, to see what changed.

Ideally, I'd like to sort of "subtract" one workbook from the other, cell by cell, and display something in the results that shows cells that differ btwn workbooks and cells that don't.

Obviously, I could just print the two versions, and plow through them both, side by side. But they're nearly 2,000 rows deep, all things considered, and with all the data we compile for each member, each row goes up to column AT! That's a lotta data to compare visually cell by cell.

Is anything like what I'd like to do possible?

Thx.

I have two cells, Cell "A" and cell "B", that have a formula in each. Cell "A" has a value that is correct and Cell "B" has a value that is correct. I now have a third cell (cell "C") with a formula that takes the values of cell "A" and cell "B" and multiplies them. The value of the product is wrong in cell "C" as compared to a value performed by a calculator. Cell "C" reports 51,550.64 whereas the calculator reports 51,540. What is the problem.

Thanks
 

A:Excel cell to cell multiply problem

I'm willing to bet that the number you are entering into the calculator are rounded off while the number that Excel is using is not truly rounded off. Even though Excel may display a certain number in a cell due to its format, it is probably using the true value of the number which probably includes several decimal places. What numbers are showing in cells A and B? How are cells A and B formatted? What happens if you increase the number of decimal points in these cells...do the cell number become larger? If so, then Excel is likely using the true values of the cells instead of the display values in its calculations. Provide details of how you are obtaining your cell values so we can confirm that this is happening.

Try the following

TOOLS --> OPTIONS and choose the Calculation Tab. Put a check in the box marked "Precision as Displayed."
NOTE: This will affect all other calculations on the workbook causing changes to other values on the sheet!

Hi, all!

I wish to purchase an HP dv5000t series laptop with a 12 Cell Li-Ion battery, but I saw a diagram on the HP site which showed a bulky mass at the back of the laptop, compared to a 6 cell which did not have this. It seems that such a laptop will not be able to sit flat on a desk.

Does anybody know from experience if this will be the case? If so, how bad of an angle is it? Will it interfere with normal use, etc?

Thanks! Your help is appreciated.

If HP sells the battery with the laptop then it'll work. While it may not sit flat that isn't a problem.

Hi,I have a HP EliteBook 2540p laptop and I want to know the differences between the two types of batteries (HP 6-cell 62 WHr Li-Ion Primary Battery & HP Long Life 6-cell 55 WHr Li-Ion Primary Battery).I mainly looking for the maximum life time for the battery and the maximum time I can use the laptop before charging. ThanksMostic 











Solved!

A:HP 6-cell 62 WHr or HP Long Life 6-cell 55 WHr

Hi, No need to check, as I said before 62WHr will last longer 55Whr between charge given doing SAME workload. That is a very basic Physics lesson. Regards.

Ok, this should be super easy, but it is 5:30 and my brain is totally fried. I have a simple spreadsheet, three columns

COLUMN A1 is text:

Hello <NAME> thank you for coming to the show on <DATE>

COLUMN B1 is NAME
BOB

COLUMN C1 is DATE
3/30/2008

I need a 4th column to merge all this wonderful data together for me.

I have been using Ctrl+Home to navigate to cell A1. I then type in the word Home in the GoTo or reference box (the box to the left of the formula bar, ... I may not be calling it by its proper name). I then navigate to some distant, faraway place on the spreadsheet, and then when I need to return to A1 I click the drop down box, select "Home", and in an instant I'm there at A1. All it fine, ... that is until I run a macro. Once I run a macro all such references previously made are wiped out. What can I do to fix this? To list all of the code would be a lot of clutter, but I will if necessary.

You'all are wonderful. Thank you for your looking.
 

A:Cell GoTo or Cell Reference Box

If you include Range("A1").Select in your code you will be taken to the 'Home' cell

Have you tried recording a macro that does that? You will then see (when you open the vba editor) what it does and you can always edit your code to your needs.

I have living document I use at work that tracks components that are incoming. One of the places I have parts incoming from are Germany. The parts come by sea freight and take 6-8 weeks to arrive. I want to be able to put in my spreadsheet the day these parts ship and have it automatically update to when they should arrive (using 7 weeks).

Another thing to note about this: I use column A as the total parts in house, and column B as the incoming parts. When parts are received in house they add to column A. If there is a formula to do the projection, it also needs to not add to my counts from B4, but add to my count from B11.

Thank you for helping.

My laptop battery's full charge capacity has fallen from 60Wh to 35Wh all of a sudden. It used to be around 58-59Wh couple of months back, then I began using conservation mode for a few weeks. Later when I went back to normal mode, my laptop's backup was totally deterioted. It began lasting under 3hrs as opposed to 5hrs+ earlier under light load. Then I discovered the reduced full charge capacity issue. It's quite weird to see such a massive loss in capacity considering that I have under 70 cycles on the battery and the laptop is barely 10 months old and used quite sparingly.Things I have tried but to no avail:1. Calibration using one key recovery(The laptop kept working for over 2hrs under 2% battery while I did this!)2. Calibration using energy management3. Reset windows.4. Fresh install windows.Service center and lenovo india are highly ignorant towards the issue, calling this as an imported laptop(I got my laptop as a gift from my uncle in US, non 4k y700 is sold in India as well). The international warranty s**ks big time.Any help will be greatly appreciated, more so if you don't ask me to disassemble my laptop!Thanks

I apologize if I'm in the wrong froum for this, but it seemed the most appropriate to me at the time. I have music on my laptop that I want to make into a ringtone on my cell. I used WMA to play it to see if I could record it onto the phone and, as I suspected, it did. How can I transfer these .wma, etc. files to my phone?

I can get Internet on my cell phone anywhere but not my laptop. Why? and how can I fix this where my laptop can get Internet anywhere like my cell phone. You go to a hotel and they charge you for wi-fi so you can hook up to the Internet with your laptop.

A:How can I get my laptop on the Internet like my cell phone

With mobile phones, you more than likely use a data plan. If you do have a mobile phone that supports using a hotspot, as well your service provider allows it, you could set up the hotspot and connect your laptop to that. I believe it uses your own data though. Many providers as far as I know sell dedicated hotspots that you can purchase plans for.
