$orry, theres no fix to this, after a while batterys begin to die and the life becomes shorter. this could be due to leaving it on charge all day and night and not letting it frequently loose and gain charge again. even my laptop battery has began to lose its battery length - but ive had my battery for a long time. purchase a new battery and try to keep from leaving the A/C adapter in over night. you should notice alot longer battery length after that. rate me :)

How can I fix a possible short in Bright Starts Ingenuity Cradle and Swing?


Sounds like a short n wiring. Was it plugged into wall outlet or running on batteries? Did u smell any burning? Or like warm, hot plastic? If it's ran on batteries or if it is a .wall plug, but there was no smell. U might b able to open it up and locate a lose, disconnected or old and or fauly wire. Which u could reconnect if still good. If faulty, then splice, replace, reconnect.That would b, if lucky. If your not and or it was a short, then it's likely to have burned up the motor, which is more likely if it was a wall plug.

Keep getting message that my battery in low, also laptop goes dead if not connected to cherger.


atteries have a limited life and most need to be replaced every 12 to 24 months. If that amount of time has lapsed since you've replaced the battery, or if damage was done to the battery, such as a spill or overheating, the battery may be dead Unplug the laptop from the wall charger. Remove the battery from the laptop. The battery is located on the underside of the laptop and usually slides out, or can be popped out by sliding the battery release buttons next to the battery.2 Dip a cotton swab in rubbing alcohol. Rub the cotton swab into the battery contacts to remove dirt and dust. Use a cloth dampened with water to wipe dust from the rest of the battery and battery housing unit. If dust is on the connectors, it can block or impede charging. Snap the battery back into place on the laptop.3 Plug the laptop wall charger into the wall. Plug the other end into the laptop. Allow the laptop to charge for 24 hours.4 Disconnect the laptop wall charger from the laptop. Turn the laptop on. If the laptop does not turn on, the battery did not charge, indicating the battery is dead. If the laptop turns on, but the battery lasts for a short period of time, this is a good indication that the battery is damaged or dying.

    Battery life seems fairly short. How long should


    Hi,
    In most laptops the standard idle life is around 3 - 4 hours. The drain from the internet can cut this down to between 1 - 1 and a half hours. Using games is around the same or less than what the internet takes and if your using an office application it is around 3 - 4 hours.
    Using the laptop for power hungry multitasking will reduce battery life dramatically.




    Regards.

    Battrey problems


    Battery life estimates vary in accuracy, and are based on algorythms comparing the output of the battery over time. As batteries age, this becomes less and less accurate. Since this is a 100L, if using the original battery, the battery has exceeded it's useful life and will likely have a short functional battery life. (I have an Inspiron 700m with it's original battery, and I get maybe 30 minutes from it, the meter will say 40 to 50 minutes remaining when it dies) Due to the design of a portable battery, which maintains a high output till exhausted, older batteries with short lives don't aid in battery time estimates.

    In short, for a accurate battery life prediction, replace the battery.

    Battery life is very short


    Not really. What happened is you shorted the life of the battery by always having it plugged in and in a charging state. The battery has a memory and since it's always been plugged in, it will never charge fully. There are products out there that will drain your battery down and reset the memory issue. But it would be cheaper to get another battery. If you are going to keep it plugged in the majority of the time, charge up the battery and remove it.
