Nurvo tablet will not turn on or off


Have you charged the battery? Please charge it at least for 2 hours, and then try this:
1. Unplug the AC adapter,
2. Remove the battery,
3. Press the power button and hold it for 15 seconds,
4. Install the battery,
5. Plug in the ac adapter,
6. Turn on the laptop.

If it does not work, then probably the motherboard is dead.

Tip

Make your Lithium Laptop Battery last longer.


Hello folks,

Although I usually offer advice on backing up files or recovering them, I have been asked a lot lately how my 3 year old laptop still runs 1:45mins on a standard battery when many peoples 1-2 year old laptops can barely last an hour.

Simply put, most people do one of two things wrong. Both are common misconceptions and easy to remedy. First I've heard countless people tell me they pop the battery out of their laptop and toss it in the desk drawer until needed, often months. Second I have been told by more people than I can count that they leave their laptop plugged in 24/7 for most of the year.

Bottom line, although popping it out and leaving it in the drawer is less harmful to it's lifespan, both ideas are wrong.

The shelf life of most unused lithium batteries is shorter when unused than ones being used properly. The lifespan of a battery that is constantly being trickle charged is even shorter.

Most batteries in modern laptops are 4-6 cells, designed to give about 2 hours of charge and should last 3-5 years with charge life starting to degrade in the third year.

A "stored battery" has only 3 years of shelf life due to extended times sitting discharged and one that is trickle charged 24/7 may burn out in as little as a year.

Many laptop manufacturers have taken measures to improve this but ultimately the best thing for your battery is to use it. If you currently run you laptop plugged in 24/7, unplug it every night after you shut it off, then when you start it in the morning, let it run an hour before plugging it back in. This will give the battery both down time and exercise.

If your battery is in a drawer somewhere for safe keeping, put it back in the laptop, run it down then charge it over night and run it down then recharge it one more time. Store it back in the drawer charged and repeat the cycle at least once a month.

These tips will help drastically improve you batteries performance over time. My 3 year old laptop only ever got 2 hours of battery life and still gets 1:45 with no power saving measures, give it a try.

My msi u100 starts up but then the battery light goes red and shuts down how can i fix it


HI Cws666, try to charge your computer for a full 3 - 5 hours without interruptingit, than try again.
If that doesn't work, try buying a new battery.
If that doesn't work send it to computer's brand labs.

I won an msi wind u130 in a raffle. the box says battery lasts for 7 hours, but when i charged it, it lasts only 2.5 hours. Is there any setting i should change to get the 7 hours?


Welcome to the world of unreal advertising. 3 hours is a realistic max.
You could change the sound to off, the screen to dim, the internet wifi off, etc. to get better battery but of course, that would limit the system.
If this answers your question, I'd appreciate 4 thumbs. I do this for fun and do not get paid.

My MSI Wind battery blinked out and not it is blinking orange what does that mean?


Hello,

The blinking battery light indicates the battery has an internal short which is preventing it from charging. The problem usually goes back to the charge monitor circuit in the battery. There is a thermal fuse that blows if the battery pack gets to hot during a charging cycle to prevent the battery from exploding like to hear about on the internet from time to time. After the fuse blows the only thing to do is get a replacement battery pack.

I hope this helps, If so please rate our solution.

My battery on my MSI wind u100 is not keeping a charge. This problem has started recently. I had the netbook for about nine months. The "cord" symbol on the toolbar shows, and the battery will say "89%",...


If it is under warranty, return the battery pack. If not, you can try to discharge the pack as much as you can, and then recharge it. Most packs are made up of several smaller batteries. When you don't discharge the battery pack all the way, some batteries have more charge than others, and will stop the charger when THEY get full, leaving the others 'starved'. Finally the others only have the 10 minutes charge you are seeing. You will likely not be able to get the 'better' batteries discharged enough, and will have to buy a new battery pack.

My msi won't turn on. Battery is in, charged, and


Try unplugging it and removing the battery. Wait a few minutes. Yes actual minutes. Then put the battery back in and try again.

When you get back in try rolling back to a restore point when you know things were working well.

Could be a software update of some kind threw things out of whack.

How is the battery life on this model?


The battery life is preety decent, I have the same model. The normal six cell battery would last around 2 hours under power saver mode, a 9 cell battery can give you 3 hours. But it shows outside the system like a small step. It takes around about 45 mins to completely charge the battery from zero charge.

Thanks
