Time to get a new battery. For future reference, do not use battery and AC at the same time b/c it will kill the battery. Use one or the other (unless battery is being charge).

Sir my laptop name is lenovo G550 intel pentium inside, the problm is battery back up is 3 hours but am not getting atleast 45 min please help me


Hi Kiran
It sounds as though your battery may be failing to charge properly. This can either be due to insufficient charging time or the battery going faulty. Also your machine could be simply drawing unneeded power during use. Ways to extend battery time include dimming the display, turning off wireless connections, it all depends on what you are doing while the machine is on battery. Have you previously achieved the 3 hour battery life? if so then it is likely that the battery may be going faulty. Try to do a full charge/discharge cycle a few times to see if the life improves. Hope this helps.

Low Battery Life.


You may have a bad battery. These batteries also lose capacity over time and over the number of charge/recharge cycles.
In addition, many batteries need to be fully discharged about once a month in order to keep themselves calibrated.
Once you lose the ability to get a complete charge, you need to replace the battery.

It has only been 2 and a half months sinse i bought my toshiba equium A300D series laptop. Once i have fully charged my laptop i only have a hour to use until it needs charging again. I never had this...


this happens to every laptop after a while, although after only 2 months it should be ok, you may need to send it back under guarantee, but remember you will have more things running now then when you first had it, using more processor power and also any usb peripherals youve added also shorten battery life.
