Sony :: Battery Time Remaining

Feb 2, 2009

the battery time remaining indicator on some of the Vaio models (my FZ190 for example). This was due to the fact that the supplied apps from Sony didn't support showing the amount of time remaining.

I just came across a free app (actually a Vista toolbar) that does its own estimate of battery time remaining, based on its monitoring of the power dropping as the battery is used. It works GREAT on my FZ190 and should work on ANY machine that does not natively support this feature.

Dell Inspiron 15 3521 :: Battery Failure - Laptop Plugged In All The Time

Nov 28, 2014

I have a Inspiron 15 (3521, Late 2012) and my battery has failed 7 days after the warranty was up-Murphy's Law.

I keep my laptop plugged in all the time  and therefore do not run it off the battery.

I don't see how the battery could fail, when I don't run (use it) the computer from it, especially after only 1 years usage?

Dell Inspiron 1520 :: Battery Meter / AC Power Icon Disappeared

Nov 23, 2008

I've noticed that my battery meter/AC power icon has disappeared from my system tray.  I'm not sure how to make it reappear.  I'm not even sure how it suddenly disappeared in the first place.  The reason why I want this icon to always be there is so that I can tell how much battery power I have left on my laptop.  Also, when I am charging my laptop battery and letting my laptop run on AC power, the battery icon turns into the AC power icon.How do I get it to reappear?  Is the icon part of the Dell Quickset program/software?  I'm not sure.  I have an Inspiron 1520.

HP/Compaq :: HP Notebook Won't Calculating Battey Time Remaining

Jun 10, 2009

On several notebooks, I have seen a feature which tells you how many hours and minutes you have remaining until the battery dies.

Like, if you click the battery icon, you can usually see it there.

Do HP notebooks have that?

However, I'm not after the third party programs. I'm looking for the HP software to do it.

If anyone knows anything about the HP time remaining thing,

Dell Inspiron 15 3521 :: Battery Would Not Charge - Press F1 To Continue Or F2 To Enter Setup

Jan 17, 2015

I have a Dell Inspiron 15 3521 which, until recently, was working fine. 

This morning I, after a rebooted, I got an error message informing me that the battery would not charge and to press f1 to continue or f2 to enter setup.  I continued and booted into Windows fine but noticed it wasn't charging,  I rebooted to see if the error message would go away.   It didn't.

I booted into the BIOS, loaded the "optimized defaults" and rebooted only to be greeted by the same error message.  

There were quite a few posts with similar issues, so I tried a couple of the solutions to see if any of them would work(updating the BIOS to A12, rebooting with the battery removed and then replacing it, deleting the two driver under batteries in device manager, etc.), but none of them resulted in the battery charging though the error message went away.  

After playing around with it for a while, I noticed the following behavior.

1.  Initially, in the BIOS, it said something like "Your battery is temporarily disabled, please turn off your computer and try again when the unit is back to operational temperature" .  After removal/reboot/re-adding, it reports it as healthy.  

2.  The AC adapter is reported as unknown when the battery is plugged in.  If I remove the battery, it is reported as 65W. Adding the battery results in it reporting as "unknown" again.

3.  If I am in Windows with the battery plugged in and not charging(as reported by windows) and I remove the AC adapter from the socket in the wall and plug it in again, the green light on the power brick glows for 5 or so seconds and the icon in the system tray shows charging. Unfortunately, it then turns off a few seconds later and the icon shows it running only on battery power.  

 I've seen quite a few of these posts, so I'm not expecting a definitive answer. As of right now, I'm running with just the AC adapter plugged in and the battery removed.  It works "fine" this way. 

NOTE:  This seemed to coincide with a run of windows update.  Prior to that, it was working correctly running on a fresh install of Windows 8.1 .  Either that, or it was just a coincidence.

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: IdeaPad Y500 - No Battery Display For Remaining Power

Mar 3, 2014

Shortly after I received my laptop, I installed a third-party battery monitor, BatteryCare, to monitor the battery in the laptop because I'd used it on previous software and liked having a second source of information. I've been running the laptop like a desktop for the last few months though and havent had to pay any attention to batter life, since the thing is always plugged in so I decided to delete BatteryCare.
The uninstall went fine, but when I restarted the computer I noticed that the icon displaying remaining battery life did not reappear. I went digging to see if the uninstallation might have uninstalled a driver but I couldn't find anything indicating a problem like this. I still have the Energy Monitor - just nothing showing up much juice is left in the battery.
Any pointers on what drivers/devices I might have to reinstall to get power monitor icon back. I checked the Driver Matrix, here, but I couldn't find anything about solution. Should I just reinstall the Energy Management utility?

HP/Compaq :: Battery Meter After Clean Install, Dv5z

Jan 14, 2009

After a clean install of vista on my dv5z, all the drivers have been installed and everything works properly...

one thing i noticed was that the battery manager now says

Power Saver
High Performance

instead of

HP Recommended
Power Saver
High Performance...

I was wondering if there is any benefit of having Hp recommended instead of just Balanced, and if there is a driver or fix?

I bought my dell 3521 laptop on sep 2013 , I shut down the laptop last night now I couldn't turn on the only thing I get is power light on without blinking No fan no had to switch off I need to remove the battery no other way.

Dell Inspiron 15 3521 :: Not Registering AC Adapter

Jan 18, 2015

I've had a Dell Inspiron 15 3521 since May 2013; it has been updated to Windows 8.1, 4GB RAM, etc. It's been a great laptop in all honesty. 

However, in the last few weeks, I've had some issues with the laptop booting up. Originally, it would turn on, but then stick with a black screen (no other sounds of the computer starting up), and then beep 7 times. Per another forum post I read, that's indicative of a Processor Failure.

In this case, I'd remove AC Power, the battery, give it about 15-20 seconds, then reconnect the charger. The laptop would turn back on, no problems. I'd end up popping the battery back in a little later, and it'd charge with no issues. This has been my fix in the meantime for the last month or so.

Now, I can't get my laptop to even register that it's connected to AC Power. It'll just stay black, and then beep 7 times in a row repeatedly. I've tried using another AC Adapter, in the case my adapter died, and no such luck.

What are my options? My laptop is no longer under warranty, though I do have my service tag.

Dell Inspiron 3521 :: Laptop Not Switching On?

Sep 23, 2014

From last 2 days, I have seen that my laptop 3521 Dell doesn't switch on at all. Second thing I have observed is that, when I have my charger connected to the plug point (not connected to the laptop), I see the green light on the charger as ON, but the moment I connect it to the laptop, the light from the charger turns OFF and ultimately, my laptop doesn't charge. I mean no power supplied.

The steps I have carried over so far are -

1) I have tried checking the laptop battery by taking it out and reputing it in the laptop and trying to see if it works, same problem.

2) I have tried checking if everything is okay with the charger, but still the same problem.

Dell Inspiron 3521 :: Apps Are Not Opening And Closing

Jan 10, 2015

I own a Dell Inspiron 3521, and I'd been having an issue with apps not opening and closing when I do try. I went to fix this error. That's when I made a grave mistake. Somewhere along the line of me trying to fix it, I messed with something I shouldn't have and when I finished with my task, I was told to restart the computer to activate the settings. After I turned it back on it seemed normal up to the point after I saw the dell logo. It went black. At first I made the assumption that since I changed settings that it was still trying to configure them. But soon after,  I saw my mouse and a little signal flash in the bottom left of my screen. So I checked around and found out that I needed to reinstall windows with disc or USB. But I don't have access to either of those.

Dell Inspiron 3521 :: Touch Screen Is Not Working

I ordered Dell Inspiron 15 3521 (with Intel Celeron 1007U) online when the website said this has optical touchscreen capabilities. But when I got it (2 days ago), the touchscreen is not working and I don't think it was installed on the laptop. Will Dell exchange the laptop for the tochscreen free of charge?
