Laptop battery draining fast.

I'm havin trouble with my laptop. Whenever i unplug the charger, it will say it has around 3 hours of battery life left, but it realy drains down to zero within 10 minutes. My power plan is set to power saver but it still drains realy fast. i have to have it connected to a charger all day to use it and this kinda defeats the purpose of the laptop... The laptop is a Fujitsu Lifebook T series.

  1. call the manufacture and see if the battery is still under warranty. your battery is prolly dead and needs to be replaced.
  2. Your battery is "dead". And Windows doesn't detect that. Your only solution is to get it replaced and learn to take care of the new battery, here is a guide for you to follow when you get the new battery: http://www.ehow.com/how_5646359_care-laptop-battery.html
  3. It's prolly misreading because you never let it fully discharge. In most Lithium ion based laptops, a complete discharge to "dead" recalibrates the charging circuitry which 1) should give you an accurate reading of time left and 2) optimizes charging rate so that it recharges your battery quickly tapering off as it gets closer to full thereby optimizing both charging rate and battery life.
  4. Fully discharging can permanently decrease the battery life.
  5. hpfreak is talking absolute nonsense. Most manufacturers of laptop batteries will recommend a residual discharge of the battery to calibrate it.

    I am sick and tired of people trying to insert their 'opinion', when it isn't at all based on facts. It doesn't help anybody and you should probably feel bad, hpfreak.

    P.s - HP products are really terrible.

    While I do agree with you about hpfreak's response being way incorrect, I can't help but see the irony in your ridiculous response and your absurd "opinion" that "isn't at all based on facts".

    Lol learn your facts before talking and anyone can put an opinion so just shut the fuck up with it already? and also doesnt matter what product u use it matters about the strength of it/siz ofcouse you wouldn't know cause for all you know the battery can just have a low power supply maybe even too much power can be going in to it and making the battery malfunction like i said theirs millions of problems no one will know forsure so the best resource is to buy a new battery but first check the battery for damages if you can see dents and all scratches in the memory of the battery you know just the essentials 3 step check then go to your local computer place and ask for a new one maybe your manufacture can actually help you out if you got warrantys but i doubt you got a warranty with ur fujitsu those thing are pretty much made to be smashed :) but like i said im not a professional i just took 4 courses and am very good with my computer knowledge anyways have a great day and don't put peoples opinions down everything is worth a shot !
  8. Para la notebook, Dell Inspiron 7537. Para solucionar el problema se debe cambiar el driver Intel Management Engine Interface Driver de la versión 11 a la 9. iMEI_INTEL_W8.14_A00_Setup-5D6PT_ZPE

    For the notebook Dell Inspiron 7537 downgrade the driver Intel Management Engine Interface Driver for the version 11 to 9.
  9. Hey guys! It might be a bit late but it might be useful for upcoming readers.
    I was experiencing the same problem with my laptop's battery.
    However, (and I don't know how it fixed the problem) I just shut down and restarted my laptop a bunch of times throughout the day and after that the problem was gone! I charged my laptop before I restarted it, so make sure that you'll do this too!
    If this does not work, I guess a computer store is the place to be.
    Good luck!

  11. Good Morning,
    Just you need to change the battery it will occur when u keep your charger when u have more than 50% of charging. Don't keep your laptop in sleep mode or Hibernate mode. As an average laptop battery will work upto 3 to 4 year.
