Dell :: Xps 1330 Battery

Jun 10, 2009

My xps 1330's battery just went completely dead (past the one year warranty period obviously) and considering how stupidly expensive the dell replacements are,

I was wondering if anyone had any experience with non-official replacements. Some places seem to sell a generic version of that battery for about half the price.

So the question I'm asking myself now is: 'what's the catch?'

Anyone running Win 7 RTM and noticing lower battery life? My 6 cell can barely push 2 hours, though its missing about 30% of its capacity due to wear. Its about 18 months old with a lot of charge and discharging. I do like Win 7, the laptop is running very snappy with it.

Apple :: 2.66 Core I7 15" Macbook Pro Battery Tests

Apr 18, 2010

I just got a new Macbook Pro and wanted to share my battery life experience with you:

- Safari open with 5-6 tabs, WiFi on, Bluetooth on, full brightness, just browsing random websites + youtube = 5h:18m

- iTunes playing in the background, Safari with same random websites open, about 60% brightness = 6h:09m

So far the display eats up a lot of battery life.

- Watching HD YouTube (I was watching the Home Project), 100% brightness: 4h:41m, 60% brightness: 5h:23m.

- SD video with Quicktime: 5h:10m with 100% brightness
- HD video with Quicktime: 4h:38m with 100% brightness

Playing the Sims3 with everything max details (1440x900 resolution on OS X) and 100% brightness: 2h:58m (wifi on bluetooth on)......

Dell :: Running Mine Without A Battery?

Aug 6, 2009

So the other day I decided to actually read through the crap that dell gives you (safety and precautions stuff) and in there it said with the new lithium ion batteries its actually better to not let them die and keep them above 40%.

In turn I decided the best way to do this is by charging them fully then just taking them out and letting my computer run off of the outlet.

Worked so far for me and this will prevent charging/discharging my batteries constantly. Anyone else done this? Any negatives to this (other than the obvious, which is if power is disconnected it will turn off). My computer is a studio XPS 1640 by the way.

Acer :: 3810 With Dual-core Proc. Reduced Battery Life

Nov 22, 2009

The Acer Timeline 3810tz is advertised to get 8+ hours of battery life.

Dell Studio 1737 :: Lags When Running On Battery Power?

Mar 14, 2013

I have a Studio 1737 running Windows Vista Home Service Pack 2. I'm running the latest BIOS and all of my drivers are up to date.

When the AC adapter is unplugged and I'm running on battery power  the whole system lags. It also turns of when unplugged without warning after about 15 minutes.

Also, I get these error messages in my event viewer a couple of times an hour:

Log Name: System

Source: ACPI

Event ID: 13

: The embedded controller (EC) did not respond within the specified timeout period. This may indicate that there is an error in the EC hardware or firmware or that the BIOS is accessing the EC incorrectly. You should check with your computer manufacturer for an upgraded BIOS. In some situations, this error may cause the computer to function incorrectly.

Acer :: Dual Core SU2300 Benchmarks Vs Single Core SU3500 - 1410

Nov 3, 2009

I bought the Acer 1410 with the single core SU3500 Core 2 Solo CPU. It looks like Acer decided to release them with the SU2300 now, which is dual core at 1.2GHz (compared with 1.4GHz of SU3500).

Does anyone have any benchmarks comparing the two, and/or if they have a solid understanding how much better it would perform compared with the SU3500? I also see that the single core AS1410 with Celeron M @ 1.3GHz sells at the same price as the dual core.

Acer :: Upgraded Core Solo T1350 To Core 2 Duo T7200 On Aspire 5570 Guide

Jan 23, 2009

(UPDATES: DIY Bluetooth module guide added below)

upgrading my Aspire 5570 notebook more than a year ago. This time, Iím feeling lucky to share some of my experiences about how I finally upgraded my CPU from a Core Solo T1350Core 2 Duo T7200.

Again, thanks to everybody here in Notebookreview forum especially adinu, hoggie, Mack1982, TehSuigi, krazyphire and bigozone for their insights and knowledge that helps me a lot throughout the whole process. So, letís get started!

Pre-upgrading

Please refer to these post before you start. It'll save you a lot of time and trouble later on.
Upgraded Acer 3680 Celeron CPU to a T5300!
Aspire 5315 CPU Step-by-Step Upgrade Guide

What youíll need :Your new CPU (make sure it's compatible with your system ie; socket, FSB)Latest BIOS from Acer (upgraded to 1.3505 or latest)A good thermal paste (I would recommend Tuniq TX-2 or Arctic Silver 5 as well)Basic tools (screwdrivers, forceps, kitchen paper)Body static discharger (I would definitely recommend this as a precaution)Some alcohol, ear buds, sand paper grid 600,1200 & 2000 (optional for heat sink lapping)Lastly TIME and PATIENCE (youíll be needing these a lot definitely!)When youíre ready, lets get our hands dirty.

How to disassemble your notebook?
I found out a very good video tutorial on how to disassemble my Aspire notebook on YouTube. So please take your time to view it and follow step by step as shown to help you to go through the process.

Lapping your heat sink (optional)
Although itís not necessary, but I would recommend this process as another way to improve heat dissipation on your newly installed CPU. Refer to this page for detailed instructions.

The simple process:Clean your heat sink from old thermal paste residues with alcohol or equivalent of it using ear buds and kitchen papers.Apply a 600-grid sandpaper to smoothen the heat sink surface which comes into contact with your CPU.Repeat the process again with a 1200-gid sand paper until youíre satisfied.Finally, finish up by applying a 2000-grid sand paper to give you an almost mirror-finished surface. Wipe clean any dirt and residues left.....................................

The computer came with a lightscribe drive and is removable since it also came with a empty filler for the optical drive. Is it ok to remove the drive and/or plug it in while the computer is on ? Same thing w/ the battery... is it ok to pop the battery out when the computer is on AC power, or put the battery back in when the computer is plugged in ?

Apple :: Macbook - Battery Running Low - All Of The Sudden Went Blank And Shut Itself Off

Jan 23, 2009

I recently got the Macbook for Christmas and it has been giving me no problems until last night. I was watching a video on it and I had it plugged in, as the battery was running low, when it all of the sudden went blank and shut itself off. I thought that maybe the battery had died for some strange reason, since it had not been in its charger long, went on my other computer and dismissed the situation until this morning.

When I unplugged it, checked the battery life (it was full, by the way, 8 green lights came on) and then tried to turn it on, nothing happened. I held down the button for a long time and still, nothing. I tried plugging it back in and turning it on, still nothing.

I got the manuel out and tried the Command, P, R and Power button thing, which made the laptop make a small noise. Then I tried once again to turn it on, but the screen just went to a lighter gray and nothing happened. When I pushed it again, it went dark. I tried removing the battery and putting it back in, but it still did the same, and I even tried holding down the power button for five seconds while the battery was out. Still nothing.

HP/Compaq :: HDX 16dual Core Or The HDX 18quad Core For Video

Mar 2, 2009

I want to upgrade my old laptop to something nice, and am torn between to systems.

An HDX 16 with:

2.40 Ghz dual core duo ( P8600 chip )
6 gigs of ram

OR...

An HXD 18 with
2.0 Ghz QUAD core ( QX9000 chip )
4 gigs of ram

both systems have the same video card ( Nvidia with 512megs of ram ) 500 gig hard drive.

What would be the faster machine for doing video ? and what would be the overall faster machine ?

I realize that not all applications will take advantage of a quad-core chip like the QX900, so this is why I"m asking. if the dual-core P8600 chip @ 2.40 Ghz in the HP HDX 16 with that 6 gigs of ram will actually be faster overall than the quad core would be, and perhaps even be faster at rendering video ?
