Question about Toshiba Portege R100 Notebook
Hi I have a Toshiba Portege R100 and everytime I use it after 2 weeks of storage + the batteries are flat.
It has a new Extended Battery fitted and when fully charged last for 6 hours GREAT! but if I only use approx half the battery, it is completley flat next usage.
I have also a TECRA M2 but when I use 50% of the fully charged battery after no usage for approx 2 weeks the battery is still 50% chargeg ...?? Confused
Both are centrino models with max memory fitted.
H E L P !!
If it was working fine before then are many reasons why this could happen
1. Battery is old and is dead
2. Battery not plugged in properly
3. Carbon might have appeared at the ports where the charge passes thru in the laptop
Solution: open the cover where u put the battery, The ports where the battery goes in , try to touch the metal area with any other metal so that if there is any carbon it passes thru to the other metal... and the ports become free
4. Try to do a flee power release
MAke sure battery is fully charged.
Take out the battery from laptop
when the battery is out , press the powe button on laptop for 30 sec and then put the battery in ur lapyop and try to trun it on by pressing the power button firmly.
IT shud work
Try different batteries ( u can borrow )
if it still does not work
They contact laptop vendor , the ports where the power from battery goes in to ur system are faulty
Take it to an authorized service center.
