Question about Sharp Actius AL27 Notebook
Hi and my problem is with the battery not holding a charge. We haven't used the laptop that much and even less with just the battery. I guess I'll have to buy a new battery but my concern is: I read that the problem is in the BIOS and if one doesn't update the BIOS the new battery will suffer the same fate as the original did.Have you heard of this? And how does one update a BIOS?
Thanks in advance for any and all help.
Laptop batteries are notorious for having short life spans if not 'babied' correctly. Similar to car batteries, discharging and recharging can only last for so long, until they, without notice, stop holding a charge. This is for batteries acroos the board, whether Acer, IBM, Black or White, they just don't last very long. They are made as a consumable. The BIOS trick may be true for some, but not for all issues. To update the BIOS, one has to visit their respected Notebook manufacturer's website, usually under 'Support' or 'Downloads' section and check to see whether you have the most current version. If one does not have the most current, download either the floppy version (if floppy disk drive available), or the executable one to your PC. The floppy type will automatically (usually) format and created the BIOS or 'firmware' update disk of your choosing. Full instructions are usually on the support site.
