    I have the same problem but have not had much success finding the battery, except for pdasmart.com that shows it as a "AX92 internal battery" that they sell for $20. They will replace the battery for you for $25. The battery itself should be a lot less expensive and I need a couple of them, so I plan to continue looking for another source.

    Regarding this Axim X3 backup battery nightmares we have, I looked at the "Dell Axim X3 Take Apart Guide" and it is indeed a good start - thanks!


    I also looked at http://www.pdasmart.com/aximpartscenterx..., where one can order a battery for $20 USD or send it in for $5 USD on top of that (+SH naturally), but I don't want my "configured" PDA in someone else's hands.


    I also googled for "AX92" batteries, but seem to get taken to very obviously wring batteries (for sale).


    So, if anyone has resolved this, dump your noodle for the rest of us to benefit as well. I happen to know the Karma-gods are monitoring this posting, so your reward is guaranteed ;-)

    i charge the unit for almost 4 hours, but when i open the unit the battery back up will notify that is low, so i can only use my pc for only 10 minutes the longest.

    I had not used my Axim in a long time, and when i recently started, the first thing it said was that my backup battery was low. I made the false assumption my battery pack needed to be replaced and thus I bought a new external battery. This battery worked as well as my first! Upon investigation, I found the message that showed my "bac kup battery" had "failed". I dont' know where the backup battery is either, and whether it's something I can replace. If I had my instruction manual, I'd probably know this, but can someone clue me in please? Cate

    Triston -noel there is a site that tells you how to open the X3 to get into the battery. The Dell Axiun X3 take apart guide is at (http://www.gethightech.com/Merchant2...=...)



    I hope this is some help.

System battery voltage is low even i replaced it


Hello,

As far as I know desktops do not have batteries unless you have an external UPS power backup system. If you are getting low voltage alarms or unexpected system shutdowns your power supply needs to be replaced. If you are using a laptop and you are plugged into an outlet and your battery is in this can cause the battery to go bad. E.I. if you use an outlet take out your battery.
I hope this helps.

UPS shuts off intermittently and beeps


More than likely it just needs a new battery. If the power is sagging (called a brownout) the UPS is trying to switch over to the battery to keep the power consistent. The beeping is probably a code that indicates there is an issue with low voltage on the battery. New batteries are around $20-25. Here's a link to the replacement battery: http://batteryinternational.com/apc-backups-es-be350es-ups-battery-ups-batteries-f1.html

Hope that helps.

Bypass is fine, LED lights when active, but signal is very low in volume when effect is active. Almost inaudible.


Make sure power voltage is adequate. If using a battery, the LED will light LONG after the batteery is beyond usability.

Hello and thank you for using Fixya's services.

This problem happens quite a bit with Windows Vista. It seems that Windows Vista puts a hidden file in the backup; which locks the device.

Open the external device (Windows 7 is fine). Click on "view hidden folders and files." Delete any hidden files you may have in the external.

Go back to "my computer" and right click on the external hard drive letter. Choose properties and security tab. Make your user-name as a main user (administrator) and disable the read only.

Reboot the computer and see if this works.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Compaq F700 Battery live very less


Giri,
Its normal, generally it comes with 80-90 min. You can use HP Power management to optimize the use of battery. Making screen less bright will increase the power backup.

When should I replace my backup battery?


The back up battery should be replaced immediately upon seeing the message "Backup Battery Very Low - Your back up battery is very low or missing. Data loss may result from failure to replace the battery very soon. Consult the manufacturer's instructions for directions on replacing or charging the backup battery." Warning: It is important to note that the back up battery in the MobilePro 900 is not rechargeable, thus, to prevent data loss, it is important to change the back up battery immediately when this message is displayed.

"Backup Battery Very Low"


NEC has identified an issue where the system can erroneously generate the "Backup Battery Very Low" message. There are two possible solutions that will eliminate this erroneous low battery warning message (the first method is the preferred solution, the second method can be used if the update file is not available). Solution I. Install a new version of the driver that controls the battery monitoring circuit. 1. Download the Low battery warning fix to your desktop. 2. Using ActiveSync or a compact Flash Card, copy FixBatt_HPC2K.EXE to the MobilePro internal disk. 3. On the MobilePro, double click the FixBatt_HPC2K icon. 4. When the message "Low Backup Battery Issue" is displayed, tap the "Patch it" button 5. When prompted turn unit over and momentarily depress the Reset button using the stylus. Solution II. Change the default power management configuration. Configure your MobilePro 900 to suspend when the LCD lid is closed on battery power and AC power. To ensure that the device suspends whenever the lid is closed, please make the following changes and perform a soft reset: 1. Go to Control Panel. 2. Open MobilePro Settings. 3. Go to the LCD Suspend/Resume tab. 4. Place a check next to "Enable suspend while on External Power." 5. Click the "Advanced" button and place a check next to "Enable suspend while on External power. 6. Click OK to close the Advanced Setting window and click OK to close the MobilePro Settings. 7. Turn unit over and momentarily depress the Reset button using the stylus. NOTE: Both the software update and power management settings are cleared on a hard reset and must be re-applied.
