I have some tips to keep your laptop battery live longer
1.don't undercharging and overcharging,laptops battery can reach 100 degress Fahrenheit and such heat can damage your battery. slowly but sure
2.ideally,you should try to keep your battery charged from 20 percent to 80 percent. i know it's inconvenient to unplug the charger before it reach 100 percent,but try to keep it charged near 80 percent
3.try to charge your battery constanly,and unplug it when you think its almost fully charged,overcharged can heat your battery and damage it
4.keep your laptop as cool as possible,don't try to charge the battery when the computer is turned on,even if the battery is going to 0 and you still need to use it,just shut down the laptop first and charge it,at least until the battery is charged 20%,unplug the charger and turn it on

Well,there are many other tips to keep your battery alive,but i only have those 4,thanks for using fixya

Tip

Instructions to keep your Laptop Battery last longer


There are certain elementary rules for getting more from your laptop battery. Make it a point to turn off Wi-Fi and BlueTooth. You are aware that most laptops have shortcut keys to instantly disable wireless networking. Completely avoid playing computer games, music or DVD movies as multimedia activities tend to drain laptop batteries. Disconnect all external devices like PC Card modems, firewire, USB devices and optical drives. It is advisable to use the notebook touchpad instead of an external mouse. It will also help to adjust your screen brightness as dimming your display saves battery power. You'll certainly need to see your screen, but just how bright do you need it to be? Screens lighted at full strength eat up 15 percent more battery life than if your battery was at 50 percent brightness. So, be sure to squeeze more life out of your laptop by reducing the brightness of your monitor a great deal.
3711.jpg Select a laptop power scheme that turns off the notebook monitor and hard disk after 10 minutes of inactivity. Remember to decrease or mute the laptop speaker volume. Lastly, programs that are run from a CD or DVD can be copied and run from the hard drive, which typically consumes less power than an optical drive. Some games offer you the choice to install to the hard drive, so choose this option, as you will get more life out of your laptop than using the CD-ROM or DVD player, which are massive battery consumers. There are also some more tips to improve your laptop battery life. If you do not use your laptop for extended periods of time like a few days or a week, then remove the battery pack from the laptop. Never expose the battery to high heat or extreme cold conditions. For instance, do not leave your battery in your car during the summer months. Hot batteries discharge very quickly, and cold ones can't create as much power. Make it a point to plug your laptop charger adapter into a UPS and not directly into a power outlet or surge protector. Fully charge new battery packs before use. New pack needs to be fully charged and discharged (cycled) a few times before it can qualify to full capacity. Leaving a battery in a laptop while using an electrical outlet for long periods of time will keep the battery in a constant state of charging up and that will reduce the life cycle of the battery.
Energy management has been a problem since the earliest days of mobile computing. Drains on a battery include virtually every component on your laptop, including the screen, the hard drive, the CD-ROM and DVD-ROM, and other peripherals. The biggest villain is DVD movie, which cause the screen to run at full power for the life of the movie. Make sure you have no devices plugged into the laptop that can drain its power, such as a webcam, USB thumb-stick, or wireless PC card. According to laptop manufacturers, connected peripherals can impact battery life by up to 12 percent (depending on the peripheral), so get used to the touchpad instead of using an external mouse when you're away from an electrical outlet. As a ‘Prevention is better than cure’ philosophy, it is worth mentioning that air travelers should make it a point to recharge the battery before a flight. Find an electrical outlet while you're waiting for your flight at the gate, a restaurant, or departure lounge.

Why my r430 not charging up to 100 percent? only up to 80 percent then stop


Its a feature of the laptop, you use it plugged in more than battery power right? If you go toStart Menu/Programs/Samsung there should be a program called "BatteryLife Extender". Click on it and you can choose to either let it charge to 80 percent or all the way to 100. However, if you use it plugged in mainly then I would recommend leaving it only to 80 percent to avoid possible discharging of the battery from constantly charging. Hope this helps.

My aspire 5740 showes 81% available but not charging, checked all power lines etc on balanced power. Bought laptop 3 weeks ago till today it charged up


Hi

Dont be panic. Your laptop has absolutely no problem.Your manufacturer had set a 80-20 policy for the laptop battery charging such that the battery wont be charged to 100 percent but it will charged only upto 80 percent. The makers of the lap are doing this because to give good life to the battery.You can change it by going into the power options inside control panel.

HP Pavilion DV6700 won't boot


Possibly overheating? As you say that when you press and of the F-Key option nothing is happening, and also the fan is running at full power, if the fan is louder than usual, then it could be overheating in the air vents which you can find either at the sides, back, front and underneath the laptop, try getting the compressed air, and giving the air vents a blast to get all dust out. Or a vacuum. Do it whilst laptop is turned off though!

When i try to boot my laptop the percent hits 90 and freezes


boot into safe mode, (repeatedly press F8 at power on)
Then try a regular boot.
if that doesn;t clear the stuck driver, then you may need to look at the system restore option

in safe mode, you can reset the computer back to the last few days.
look in accessories\system tools\system restore

My compaq laptop won't turn on


Remove the battery and use the A/C power adapter ....

The power supply is not powerful enough to charge the depleted battery and also power up the laptop at the same time. Your power supply is probably 40 watts... a 65 or 80 watt A/C power adapter is best, but you don't really have to buy one.

After the laptop has started and Windows has settled, put the battery back into the laptop while the laptop is still powered on and running.

Let the battery charge up for a few hours.

Hope this trick works for you!

Laptop won't turn on and charging light is not orange when plugge


I had the exact same problem. Here is the fix: remove the keyboard, battery and CMOS battery then press and hold the power button for a min. Plug just the power in then try to turn it back on. If it doesnt remove more perhiprels such as DVD, memory, hard drive then do the power button hold cycle again. After it turns on, remove the power then add the perhiprels you need to boot to BIOS, i.e; keyboard & memory. Go to BIOS then plug in the battery while the laptop is running. Unplug the power to see make sure laptop runs on the battery. Turn off then add the rest of perhiprels then plug it in power again before closing all up. If the orange light problem comes back repeat above! OR you can take it to your HP dealer to have it fixed under warranty if you are lucky. Then never buy HP ****!

Hope it helps...

My hp laptop will not boot up


Check the power supply for power. Replace if necessary. Also check the motherboard for proper operation. If no fans come on or only come on for a few seconds then you have a bad motherboard
