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?

HP/Compaq :: Laptop Plugged In All The Time (hp's)zd8000

Mar 23, 2009

We have some older hp zd8000 laptops, where the battery stopped charging at one point.. granted, they were pretty old, but in one case, we ordered a replacement battery, its been "ok".. in another, the replacement stopped working (stopped charging or holding a charge) after 3 months..

Now i'm about to get a new hp dv7t.. I'm wondering if i should avoid leaving it plugged in (and charging) all the time, or has the tech changed so that this wont hurt the unit..

HP/Compaq :: HP Laptop Losing Time And Date

Apr 16, 2009

I own an HP Pavilion dv6000.

I am constantly losing my time and sometimes date. I have checked that I have selected the correct time zone many times. The clock always jumps backwards, not forward and it is never a set amount of time. However it is usually between 30-45 minutes back. Very rarely the date will randomly jump back several years. I'm not sure what the problem is.

Some friends have told me it could be:
1)Virus or such, but i have done several scans already.
2) Dying CMOS battery
3) Or something about BIOS time being off, I'm not sure what it meant.

I guess if it is the CMOS battery, is there anything i should know before replacing it (like saving some settings or something?) or can i just unscrew the back of my laptop pop out the battery and pop in a new one?

HP/Compaq :: Do All Laptops Hide Estimate Battery Run Time

Jan 23, 2010

All the laptops that I've seen in the last few years seem to do this and only give you a percentage. I was wondering if that policy has changed at all recently. Especially with the Envy line.

HP/Compaq :: Can I Use My Laptop While Doing A Battery Calibration

Mar 8, 2009

I recently purchased a dv4-1275mx special edition, and would like to calibrate the battery. The battery is suppose to last up to 6 hours (I'm expecting about 4-4.5). Does it screw up the calibration if I am using it while letting the battery run down. I have the screen turn off disabled and the sleep disabled, but I am using a screen saver.

HP/Compaq :: Battery - Laptop Won't Start With It In

Mar 16, 2009

I understand you can run off the adapter, But with the battery installed , i cannnot. If i plug adapter in like Iam charging it (not turning power on ) the light in front lights up just briefly then nothing. I also can't power laptop on. If i run the adapter with no battery in laptop everything works fine. What causes that? Just a bad battery? motherboard is new and so is the cord.

HP/Compaq :: Fan Won't Turn On When Laptop Is On Battery Power

Oct 19, 2009

I have a HP Compaq 2230S business laptop, but this question could be put to any HP laptop. The fan is constantly running when the laptop is plugged into the power outlet, but as soon as I pull the plug to run on battery power the fan powers down and stops. I re-plug the laptop back in and the fan kicks up again.

This is not good as I almost burned myself when I picked up the laptop after an hour sitting on the table on battery power. The hard drive is right beside the processor, so the laptop gets really hot.

Vista x64 Ultimate is what I'm using at the moment and my power scheme calls for 1% minimum and 100% maximum CPU on battery power.

HP/Compaq :: Laptop Shuts Off With 18% Battery Left.

Mar 23, 2010

I updated the bios which fixed other issues. I updated the drivers and did all the win7 updates to rule any of that out. When teh laptop gets down to 18% it just powers off instantly. It does not go through a normal shutdown process or hibernate. I can power it back on and it shows 18% battery left. Is the battery going bad? I dont think this machine is barely a year old yet. I have no problems on wall power. Could it be a Win7 power setting? Just surprised win7 would slam the power off like that.

HP/Compaq :: Unresponsive Laptop- Won't Turn On, Even With The Battery Plugged Into The Wall

Dec 20, 2009

My mother was having some trouble with her laptop, and I was wondering if you guys had an idea of what the problem could be. Basically, it won't turn on, even with the battery plugged into the wall. It is completely unresponsive. The last time she used it was last night, and she said that when she was done, she left it on with the screen down and the battery plugged in.

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 :: M1330 Battery Time With 9-cell?

Feb 27, 2009

I did a search on here and and google and I came to the conclusion that if you dont know the specs of the computer you can't "accurately" guess the life of the battery so I'm hoping you guys can give me an estimate with my computer specs.

I'll post the things I think would matter most with the battery life.

Specs: Dell XPS M1330
2.2 ghz core2duo
LED screen
160 gb hdd (dont know speed, im sure you guys do with this size)

Apple :: Unibody Macbook Battery And Charging Time

Jan 21, 2009

Two questions:

1) Is it normal for the battery to take several hours, i.e. 4+, to fully charge after being mostly depleted? For example, my battery says it's like 95% charged, yet has 40 minutes to go.

2) Is it normal for the battery time-left indicator to jump all over? When I run it on battery, the amount of time remaining constantly changes. It goes from 5 hours to 3 hours to 4 hours, etc, etc.

The first time I ever used the computer when I got it in December I charged it up fully, kept it plugged in for several hours, then let it completely die out overnight and fully charged it again.

Dell XPS 13 :: Battery Shown Less Than 40% All Time / Never Fully Charged

Mar 29, 2013

My laptop is Dell ultrabook XPS 13. I've been used it for about 6 months. I don't know when it started to be like this but I've just noticed recently that the battery shown on desktop is never full charged even when it's plugged in for long hours. Last week it's at 41-42% at maximum but now it never reached more than 39% and it seems to be less and less even though I keep it plugged in every time I use it. I'm worried there's something wrong with battery but it said my battery is still fine, but obviously it's not fine.

Apple :: Impact Of The 7200rpm HD In New 17" MBP On Battery Life And Boot Time

Jul 18, 2009

I am considering buying a 17" MBP mainly as a desktop replacement for my PC, since I really don't stand it anymore.

Hence, I am going to ask 2 basic questions but I have not been able to find precise answers to them:

1. what's the impact on battery life of having a 7200rpm HD in the new 17" MBP? Will I still have my around 7hrs of juice?

2. what's the impact on boot time? I have just tested the 5400rpm version, and I didn't find it exceedingly quick, i.e. it took him around 47 seconds to boot. Would the 7200rpm decrease this?

One possibility would be to buy the standard version, and then, in a few months, upgrade with a 256 Go SSD...
