Hi,I used to be able to use my laptop (acer aspire 5733) for more than 3 hours, but now it barely lasts an hour! any idea how I can calibrate it without damage???


If your laptop is a little old even only a year or 2 old, then the battery is just wearing out and you will have to get a new one. Unfortunately laptop batteries only last a few years before they really lose their charge even with good care. To try and make it last longer use the battery managment if you havent already.

Armada E500 notebook Power button not responding.


Unless you took the batteries to a service center, I am dubious about your ability to confirm the main battery is holding a charge. The average lifespan of these kinds of batteries range between 3-5 years and is likely at the end of its lifespan. This would explain the diminishing performance over the last year if there were significant power or power circuit issues, they would likely be observed on AC power as well. This model of laptop requires the battery calibration utility be run in order for the laptop use the battery. In fact, the battery can show a full charge and still not function if the utility and battery have not been properly configured.. . . instructions on HOW TO do this below. If this doesn't FixYa then the battery will need to be replaced (links to replacement sources) www.BatteriesOvernight.com/HP-Batteries,----- OR --- www.new-laptop-battery.com/Compaq/?Compaq-Armada-E500-battery.htm. You will still have to run the configuration utility when you receive your new battery.
Link to Armada e500 manuals:http://bizsupport2.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c01124216/c01124216.pdf
How to run config utility: Standby and hibernation must be disabled for the battery to discharge completely and shut off. To use the Battery Calibration utility, first identify whether the battery requires calibration by launching the Power Management applet as described above. On the Battery Calibration tab, all installed batteries will be displayed in the primary list box. Next to each battery name will be an indication of whether calibration is required for that battery. If calibration is necessary, the phrase “Needs Calibration” will be displayed. Select the battery to be calibrated, and click the Start Calibration button. During calibration, the utility will display an icon on the Windows System Tray to indicate that calibration is in progress. Each phase of calibration (charging or discharging) will also be displayed. Calibration is complete when the icon is no longer displayed in the System Tray. Battery calibration requires several hours for completion. If you choose to continue using the computer during the calibration process, it must be connected to AC power. The calibration process must be allowed to finish without interruption. Performing any of the following actions will prematurely terminate calibration:  Clicking the Stop Calibrating button in the Compaq Power tab.  Unplugging AC power from the computer.  Unplugging the calibrating battery. (This action may result in data loss if a second battery is not installed.)  Undocking the computer.  Pressing the power or standby button.  Powering down or suspending the machine by using the Windows menu. IMPORTANT: If the calibration process is interrupted, it cannot be resumed. You must restart the computer and start the process again.
CALIBRATING WITHOUT THE UTILITY To calibrate a battery on computers without the battery calibration utility, complete the following steps: 1. Remove the second battery, if present, so that only the battery needing calibration remains in the computer. 2. Dock the computer or connect the computer to AC power. 3. Turn on the computer. 4. Check the current battery capacity level by positioning the cursor over the battery icon in the system tray. 5. Allow the battery to charge to 100%. You may use the computer, but the recharging process will require more time. 6. Set the system to “drain” mode on the battery conservation settings by pressing Fn+F7, or select Start > Settings > Control Panel > Power (or Compaq Power in Windows NT). 7. Undock the computer or disconnect the computer from AC power. 8. Restart the computer in MS-DOS mode by clicking Start > Shut Down > Restart the Computer in MS-DOS Mode > OK. 9. Allow the computer to discharge until it shuts off. 10. Dock the computer or reconnect AC power. 11. Allow the computer to charge again to 100% as in Step 5.

Give Fremontek a call (I have no affiliation with them)
They know Averatec's better than anyone else I know, and can frequently diagnose via phone.

My bet is that youmight be able to "reset" or may need a power management board.

Does the Citizen Calibre 2100 have a battery that i can change, its been in my top draw for over a year and has stopped working, i have left it in the daylight to charge but the eco drive needle is still...


Citizen EcoDrive does not have calibre 2100. This is ordinary quartz calibre and uses battery SR-626W. This battery will last for 2 - 3 years and is not rechargeable.

New battery needed!


The Everex SA2052T uses the same battery as a Averatec 2260 (2200 series) laptop. I purchase one from provantage.com this week. The battery is made by BTI and the model number is AV2200. It works perfectly.
