    Hello everyone Should I take the battery out of my dead laptops? :D I have two laptops that one, barely work and I don't use anymore, and two, is completely dead. One is a Chromebook and the other is a Windows. I'm just wondering if I should attempt to remove the battery in them just in case of a fire hazard? Or is that something I shouldn't be worried about? Thanks for your time and have a wonderful weekend Should I take the battery out of my dead laptops? :D

    :)

    Laptop Battery dead

    Hi

    Windows 10

    A 2 fold question. I have an HP Omen Laptop and for some time now that battery refuses to charge. For long time though the computer recognized that there was a battery as it always said it had 92% charge remaining but it would not charge.

    So first question is is there some setting I may have accidently bumped that would turn off charging ability?

    Second part is unfortunately even though it had 92% charge apparently my power adapter was not fully seated one day and I didn't notice that it was running on battery power until the laptop just shut off one day no warnings or anything about battery power levels.

    Then recently I started to get this windows blue screen saying there was some error and needed to restart. I searched the error code and they suggested doing a Windows Memory diagnostic check and it also did indicate that power supplies could be a cause of the issue.

    So I went ahead and checked using the WDT and if returned that there was some hardware issues and to contact the manufacturer.

    But not going to go that route as would probably just replace the system if I had to.

    But my second question is this. If it is the dead battery causing these blue screens like the article mention could be a potential cause is there a way to get windows to ignore the fact that the battery is dead especially since I use a power supply 99.9% of the time.

    The battery on this laptop is internal (Didn't realize that when I bought the system) so can't easily change it short of pulling the back off. But is there a way to get windows to ignore the state of the batter?

    Thanks
    Dave

    My MSI GP72 unfortunately, doesn't have any of these fabulous power management apps or bios settings. I use BatteryBar and Battery Limiter to cycle the battery between ~43% and 92%. Both are free despite the Pro suffix.
    If BatteryBar or powercfg is accurate, my battery is currently showing 0% wear after 2.5 years.

    ** Yes Denis, I know. *sarc

    This 0% has fluctuated as high as 9% wear after mistakenly forgetting the charger powered. *Smile


    Another important consideration is within the Advanced Settings for Power Options. I believe the default settings are very antiquated and harmful to Lithium batteries.

    Some individuals will advice power cycling your batteries until your PC shuts off. Unless you know for a fact that your PC has built-in battery-low protection, I wouldn't do it.

    Everyone is welcome to their opinion but I believe this is near paramount to flushing Lithium cells down the toilet. As such I have chosen to set much higher than default limits.
