LG M1 Express Dual Laptop

Two questions:

1. The CD/DVD unit doesn't stay closed. How can I get it fixed?

2. The laptop doesn't work for long if unconected to the main power supply. Is it something to do with the battery miser setting, or some other issue?

  1. Does it go back in and then pop back out as if you pressed the button, or is there something mechanically wrong that prevents you from pushing the drive in?
  2. Laptop batteries are notorious for losing capacity over time. Sometimes this can be due to the battery "memory" getting uncalibrated. Run the laptop on battery power until you drain it as far as it will go (save your work.) Then leave it off as you power it all the way to full charge. Turn the machine on without the power cord and once again run the battery all the way down. Several cycles of draining and charging the battery can help reset the battery. If it's just a dying battery then you may just need to get a replacement. Here are a few tips for reducing battery drain when on the go:

  • Decrease screen brightness: most laptops will have a function key (Fn+Up and Fn+Down are common keys, but find the ones with a sun icon on them) that will let you darken the screen. This will improve the battery life as less power is required for your backlight.
  • Defragment your Hard Drive: if you defrag your drive then the "arm" in it will have less distance to travel between sectors on the disk, thus saving some battery.
  • Use Power Profiles: in Control Panel you can change your laptop's power settings. If you set the profile to Portable or Max Battery most laptop motherboard's will actually under-clock the processor which will reduce the power-drain and the heat. Lower heat is explained below:
  • Improve Heat Dispersion: the hotter your laptop gets the harder the fans need to spin to compensate and disperse the heat. Keeping your laptop dust free and with unobstructed air in/out vents will save a lot of battery. Use a small pin to keep your fan from spinning (or else you will wear out the ball bearing) and shoot small bursts of compressed air into the in and out air vents. If you haven't done it in a while (or ever) then dust will probably go everywhere, so do it outside or in a well-ventilated area.
  • Remove Disks: the less time your computer is physically moving something the better. Windows will sometimes spin up a disk and scan its contents, so if there is no disk you avoid this power-draining "feature"
