Acer :: Aspire 5920g Battery Wear Level 49%

Apr 7, 2009

I bought this laptop 5 months ago and I have been monitoring it slowly deteriorating by battery life, it is a 6 cell 4400mAh battery and I use it every day, and make sure not to let it drop below 10% battery power as to not do full discharges and only partial.

I was getting 1hr 50 mins when I first got the laptop which may have been max or min settings I cant remember but anyways which seems not as good as the advertised 2.5 hr battery but I can understand that advertised and actual may differ and max, min would have had an effect. Anyways now after 5 months (Purchased early december) I am only getting 58 mins on full charge at minimum settings, now this does seem quite ridiculous and NHC is reporting 49% wear level.

My question is, is this normal for a Li-Ion Acer battery after 5 months, it seems quite bad to me, and all I can think is the laptop was left on the shelf for a while before i bought it, or that it is defective. I rang acer warranty support and I feel quite fobbed off with them saying this is normal and usage patterns and that their warranty for batteries only last 6 months and I should expect only to get 1/4 of the full charge i did when i purchased after 6 months. So acer is in the business of making low quality batteries?

Dell :: Battery Wear Level

May 27, 2010

Just a heads up to all the studio XPS owners. I opened up HWmonitor to check some temps and I noted the battery wear level and its 23%! I have only had the laptop since mid February and its degraded this bad very quickly. Needless to say I will be calling Dell and getting a replacement.

But I thought I would bring it to the attention of the community, because its been so helpful for me I try to give back.

Dell :: 20% Wear Level ( Battery)

Dec 11, 2009

I bought my Dell Inspiron 1545 about 6 days ago, I decided to install windows XP and drop vista in-order to save the battery life from vista hungry resources but

it didn't go very well i get about 2.15 hours max (with only firefox running and a LAN connection cable plus i shutdown wireless+bluetooth).

from the battery under windows XP, then i read about vista/windows 7 that they have better power management than the ancient XP so i installed the vista basic that came with the laptop but when i measure the battery's wear level which was too late i found out this:

System information for windows: <br />

Sony :: Battery Wear Level- Vaio FE690

Jan 4, 2009

my Sony Vaio FE690 only lasts around 30 min on battery (I tried calibrating, still same life) but every utility that I try (Battery Eater, Notebook control, Everest, etc.) reports a wear level of 0% and a full charge capacity that is the same as the original capacity.

Can anyone confirm that the Sony battery firmware does not report the wear level? I'm wondering if it has something to do with my BIOS upgrade.

Acer :: 1810T - Battery Wear

Nov 26, 2009

I have a utility reccommended here called BatteryBar. It has a category called Battery wear. What is battery wear? Is it as it sounds, a degradation of the maximum potential of a battery over time? Is there particular actions that cause an increase in battery wear?

I have a 1 week old Acer 1810T. Up until now the battery wear has been 0.0%. However, I let the battery run down to the point that the computer shutdown. I thought this was a good thing. I know in the old days batteries would develop a memory. They recommended a occasion full run down and charge. I think I read this is not true for the Lithium battery, however.

Well, after restarting my computer I see my battery wear is now at 1.4%. Is this because I let it run down? Also, if I want to my battery to last as long as it can, is it better to take it out when using it at home on AC power? That is about 90% of my usage.

Apple :: Macbook Nonremovable Battery And Battery Wear

Jun 12, 2009

I am looking into getting one of the new macbook pro's. Though I must say the non removable battery does concern me a bit. In past laptops I have had, I without a doubt saw increased battery wear and tear when I left the batter in the laptop while the laptop itself was plugged in. I completly destroyed a battery on my Dell laptop by doing this for about a month when it was asking as a desktop. I took the laptop which used to get around 4 hrs of battery life and then after a month it got no more than 15 minutes.

So after that I always took the battery out, so now with the new macbook pro's you cannot take the batteries out, so wont the batteries wear down to nothing faster than if you took them out when not using them?

Acer Aspire E3-111-C4GX :: Windows 8.1 - Touchpad Sensitivity Level

My cursor is as spaztic as a Mexican jumping bean.  It costs many seconds and numerous nerve endings just to get it to land on the scroll bar correctly.  I need to calm down the touchpad's sensitivity.  My notebook is an Aspire E3-111-C4GX running Win 8.1.  Already turned off taps, changed cursor speed, etc.  Must get to its sensitivity level wherever that is.

HP/Compaq :: Dv6 Battery Wear Off

Oct 6, 2009

I got my hp dv6 last Monday, so it's quite new. About three days ago I downloaded System Information for Windows trying to find out which was my GPU temp(what I didn't find, it only shows only HDD and CPU temp) and looking other stuff I noticed that my battery wear off was 7% while the battery is(was?) also new, so it got me preoccupied, so I checked it again yesterday and it was 9%!, I checked today and it's at 10% . Just c'mon I don't dedicate all my free time to plug and unplug the battery ,so why the fcuk(note there's no grammatical error) it wears off so quickly,

HP/Compaq :: Dv5t Excessive Battery Wear

Jan 16, 2010

Does anybody else with a dv5t have excessive battery wear? I purchased the laptop in August of 2008. According to hwmonitor my battery can only hold 30758 mwh down from the designed capacity of 47520 mwh. I rarely used the battery. Maybe once a week for 5 minutes to move the laptop.

I asked a friend with a dv5t purchased around the same time and his capacity is down to nearly 27000 mwh. Our laptops are the same except his has the intel integrated graphics while i got the 9600m gt. Also he uses the battery almost daily.

When i first got the laptop i got nearly 2 hours out of it. Now i can barely get an hour.

We both calibrated our batteries a few times by fully discharging and fully charging a few times which did nothing.

I know that batteries experience wear but does this seem excessive? I believe the estimate is about 10% a year. But this is almost 50% wear in a year and a half.

HP/Compaq :: HP Pavilion Dv6345us Battery Wear

May 7, 2009

I have a Pavilion dv6345us that I got back in June 2007 and I like the notebook but one of the main problems is that it keeps messing up the batteries.

The battery it came with ended up dying completely (doesn't hold a charge) within a year or so. Then I bought a 12-cell battery off eBay (generic brand) last summer/fall and now that battery too is almost completely dead.

I don't know if its a problem with the laptop or the battery so I don't know what to do. One thing I do notice is that the computer heats up a lot frequently so maybe that is the reason for the battery wear?

Only thing I have done to the computer is upgrade to 2GB RAM from the 1GB RAM it came with, a month after I bought it.

Acer :: 5920G - Battery Died

May 12, 2009

Ma lappy will be 2 years old in august, but it seems battery alredy died.

I do carry it around quite a lot, but most of the time I work on AC power.

Few weeks ago I had to work on battery and to my surprise laptop went into hibernation in less than 5 minutes after power on. Filled back to 100% and tested -- battey indicator counted percents down to 0 literally inf front of my eyes.

Is there a way to determine battery status? Might be some cells that are damaged? Any Idea what might gone wrong?

Laptop has 2 year warranty, so it's still covered for few months, but I doubt that is also true for battery only.

Dell :: M1530 Battery Level From 1 Hr -&gt; 0:07 Instantly

Jul 28, 2009

recently I started having battery issues on my m1530. I have the 9 cell, and it always worked fine and gave me 3-4 hours of time. Now, though, it displays 3 hours, then drops slowly and accurately with time, until it gets to about 1 hr. At the 1 hr mark or so, it will instantly fall to 5% remaining (about 7 mins) and then turn off after that 7 minutes.

Also, I have been having issues with the charging as well, where it will get to "plugged in, not charging" and just sit at a certain %charge. I am away from home at a temp housing this month, so I don't know if it is just the outlets here, but sometimes it will charge all the way up and others it will just give me power and no charge.

Acer :: Aspire 5920G

Mar 6, 2009

I just acquired an Acer Aspire 5920G with NVidia GeForce 8600M GS.

I opened the back cover to see what it looks like and it looks like the graphics card is replaceable. Its an MXM-II card in 73 mm x 78 mm dimensions.

Im planning to replace the graphics card and I have couple questions.

Does the motherboard or the system support Nvidia Geforce 9600M GT 512MB GDDR3 MXM II or Nvidia Quadro FX3600 512 MB MXM II?

How do you upgrade the CPU? I unbolted all the bolts on the heat sink but the frame is in the way and I cant slide the heat sink assembly out as simple as I thought it would be. Does the mainboard support X9000 extreme CPU?

Is there a link to a manual where it shows how to break apart the laptop? I might change the screen, etc.

Is it worth putting the 5920G on steroids with X9000 cpu and Nvidia Geforce 9600M GT 512MB GDDR3 or Nvidia Quadro FX3600?

Acer :: Dead Aspire 5920g

Oct 31, 2008

So after packing up my comp at a friends house my comp is kinda dead, it was alive before I left my home and everything was fine then.

When i try to start it the cpu is flickering for a bit then freezes so i dont se any bios or anything.

The blue tooth and the lights to the right of the key board are lit to and I have no idea what to do.

Ive tried my old ram mem sticks, pulling out the battery and trying without it, trying a new hard drive, checking for loose cables inside the comp, checking for dust and screaming at it but nothing works.

I talked to some friends and they suggested something called flashing the bios but I have no idea how to do it and I dont know if it will work since i cant se the bios start up screen before it freezes.

I have called acer but they basicly told me to send it in but i dont know if i have any varenty left on it so I rather try to get it working on my own before sending it in if I still got varenty on it.

Acer :: Aspire 5920G- Overheating

Jun 23, 2009

I believe that my Acer Aspire 5920G was getting too hot, so I checked the temps:

CPU: 81C
GPU: 73C
HDD: 55C

I'm afraid those temperatures are too high. I don't understand why this happens! I don't play games that much now, I have cleaned the laptop's fans recently and I have the air-conditioner on all the day to keep the room with the laptop cool.

What can I do to decrease temps? I don't want to spend money, because I'm having problems with that laptop and my 8600M GS might die soon...

Acer :: Aspire 5920G VOIP

Oct 9, 2008

I don't think the issue is physical as under Audio Properties => recording I get response from the 'VU' meter there. However, I am simply not being heard across skype or BF2/OFP VOIP. It's not the levels, which are set to maximum, I've installed the latest realtek HD drivers, and skype is set to 'windows default device'

Windows sound recorder works, although not very well.

Acer :: Aspire 5920g With Windows 7

Dec 9, 2009

i installed windows 7 on my 5920g, however, i don't know what to do with empowering technology. Although launch manager is suggested by acer to be installed the other applications are not listed as compatible with windows 7..

I did download them though, and installed them, but at enet communication manager i got a message about known compatibility issues...So i wonder, if there is a compatible version, or if i can use a version of another laptop that originally came with win7 and if so ,which one..?

Acer :: Aspire 5920G Display

Apr 2, 2009

If I close or open the Display part of the screen and or all of the screen turn's black and or blue shortly, it flickers more or less. On some positions I don't get any flickering at all, but if I just slowly open it and adjust the viewing angle it tend to apear and disapear.

Also I can reproduce it if I slowly and very gently touch the top edges of the lid and slightly push on one side and pull on the other. Not much, just a bit. Also if I put a little pressure on the left bottom side of the screen it tend to get this flickering.

Black & Blue are not the only problem, sometimes the screen turns black all of the sudden and white stripes apear on the right side / partly left side and it looks like the display is burning in, it slowly gets white and the effect moves slowly to the middle of the display. Also an indicator for that problem is that part of the pixels on screen get blue and or flicker blue. Then bigger parts bet blue and so one.

The usual open / close / adjust viewing angle works to make this disapear for a while.

Also 3D extensive games and HD movies seem to cause this problem.
