  1. Possible to run computer on AC, without charging battery?


    Hello!
    Does anyone know if it is possible to somehow let the computer (Acer Swift 3) stay connected to AC, but without constantly having to charge the battery fully up to 100% ? Does windows 10 have some options in this matter?

    Thanx!
    BRG/ Örjan.

  2. 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

    Have problem running on battery since upgrade to 1703


    Followed this to the letter except #2 The computer shuts down automatically after #1
    The computer battery icon says 88% available,CHARGING !
    The ACPI-compliant control method battery driver has re-installed. This happened before but I had not gone through all the steps as you described. I'm going to leave it as it while I go out for a doctor appointment.
    Question: what affect could the the message in #41 " PCI Express Active-State Power Management (ASPM) has been disabled due to a known incompatibility with the hardware in this computer" have on this issue? that msg came from running a PowerCfg Energy report from this computer?

    Possible to run computer on AC, without charging battery?

    Battery charging advice


    When the battery is fully charged is it necessary to switch the AC charge off? I have had contradictory advice on this, and now due to a charging / battery issue with my 2-in-1 Tablet PC I need to know. If I do turn AC off I usually (not always) find I cannot switch charging back on. For charging to restart I have to Shutdown. Restarting the PC does not cause charging to start again. It can be that at the point charging is required, it is at the least inconvenient to Shutdown. If I have to, so be it, but it would be better if I can leave AC switched on. What usually happens then is when the charge drops to some point around 70% to 80% it starts charging again, automatically.

    A related question, is it normal not to be able to run the PC from the AC when the battery charge has fallen to 0%? Or maybe this can be done if the battery is removed, but if so it is not of use to me as my Tablet PC, in common with others, is not easy to open
