  1. Battery Power


    Battery power shows 100% but when I unplug, laptop turns off. Replaced battery twice, power cord still does it. Is there a charging malfuntion problem or is there a fixit available?

    :)

  2. Power and battery


    I just had a black screen; all I could see was the mouse arrow. I researched on my other laptop and discovered it's a common problem with Win10. I tried a few recommended things but nothing happened: black screen and mouse.

    For some reason I got it into my head to remove the battery and leave the laptop just plugged into the wall. It started normally and some 6 programs I tried so far have worked perfectly. So now I am wondering whether I should have both battery and wall-power at the same time. Should I perhaps remove the battery permanently and just run the machine on power?

    Thanks for all advice, opinions, gossip.

    I just called a friend and he suggested I run the machine on battery only until the battery is down to, say, 20%, then plug it in again to power until the battery is back to 100%; then unplug it and run on battery only. Ad infinitum. Any opinions on this process? Thanks again.

  3. New battery not charging


    I suggested uninstall, not re-install.

    There's an extended version of those instructions - the same idea, but some additional steps.
    Shut down hte machine
    Remove the battery - run on AC power only
    Device Manager > Batteries
    Uninstall Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery
    Shut down the machine

    Remove AC power
    Wait 1 minte
    Insert Battery
    Connect AC power
    Start the machine

    Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery should be reinstalled when the machine is booting

    But, the .3 volts might be significant - I agree with Kbird
