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.

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,

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 Pavilion G6-1112sa Display :: Screen Just Remaining Blank

Sep 15, 2014

When I switch the laptop on, I can hear the fan, the wifi and caps lights come on but the display remains blank. This happened about two weeks ago so I did a hard reset and that worked. When my laptop, which is a pavilion g6-1112sa model that I've only had for two tears went into sleep mode yesterday I tried to awaken it but the screen just remained blank. I've tried a hard reset again today but it doesn't work at all.

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)

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

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...

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?

Lenovo X Series ThinkPad :: X100e Wireless Connection Drops From Time To Time

Jul 27, 2010

I just got my new x100e laptop today, and i really like it. But, it has a problem. 
I am connected to my wireless network at home, and it works properly on my other computers at house. But on the x100e, the connection drops from time to time. Suddenly, the internet is gone, but ten seconds later, the network is back up again. 

It's not that big a problem, but it is frustrating to lose the internet from time to time. It happens from every 5 minutes to once 30 minutes.

HP 14-d004tx OS/Software :: Takes A Long Time To Start Every Time Turned It On

Jul 17, 2014

It really annoys me that my new laptop, (Just a week old) when turned on takes a very long time before it starts. After the HP logo, it will show a blank page where my cursor can be moved, then it will stay a very a long time so I end up shutting it down then turning on again and again until it finally starts up.  This really takes a lot of my time specially I use my laptop for work.

Dell :: Hard Drive Clicks From Time To Time

Jan 22, 2009

My laptop is an inspiron 1520, about a year old now. Ever since I've had it, the hard disk drive has been making a loud, random click from time to time. Sometimes, it will click twice in the space of two minutes, sometimes it will click only once in two or three days.

Typically it's simply a loud snapping sound, like if you get a pencil and snap it against a wooden desk. It doesn't make any other sounds besides the usual hard drive sounds.

For about a quarter of a second, the system pauses. I think it's related to heat, as it happens most often while playing a graphic-intensive game.

Sony :: Z Series, Time To Upgrade

May 20, 2010

I bought my sony Z series in Oct 08, havent got the full spec infront of me. But it was the 4GB, 320GB model The past 18 months its been faultless apart from a problem with the left clicker under the touch pad which sony fixed very quickly.

Ive had a couple of problems recently with it overheating. Fans running at when seems like warp speed then the laptop turning off. The laptop seems to run really warm when I have the wireless on and using the internet etc. Ive done plenty of virus scans, defrags, disk clean up and cant seem to find anything un toward.

So my next port of call is to do a full system freash install. My questions are

With the speed that technology changes is it possible to upgrade any of my current Z series?


would I be better off buying on of the latest Z series models?

The laptop is used alot for internet and some gaming.

Sony :: VGN-SZ Time To UPGRADE The T7200 To T7600

Aug 24, 2009

I know that the T7600 runs @ 2.33 GHZ with the same FSB and also the same L2 Cache, but what striked me is that when I was looking for the T7600 I found that the PRICE IS CRAZY, avaerging $650 to $750.... This is Freakingly insane! I don't know why, well after eBaying I found it for arround $200 USED, So Im currently thinking about buying it.

BUT, I'm very worried that those $200 will be thrown away if the T7600 will not work in my VGN-SZ48GN_C.

confirm that it will work?

THE SZ Is an awesome machine, mine is Made In Japan, and I just can't justify seeling it for cheap $$$ and getting the Z Model, thats why I opted for UPGRADING the following:

1. CPU from T7200 to T7600
2. SSD 64GB
3. Maybe later a 64-Bit Vista (if I found all the drivers for that OS)

I flicked through the 78 Pages in this thread willing to find information about plp getting a CPU Upgrade, but unfortunately the SZ48GN has no luck.

I guess that the T7600 2.33 GHz and L2 Cache of 4 MB will compete with latest P and/or T series CPU, will this upgrade Boost my overall system Performance?

Its time that we polish our SZ and save the bucks of buying the Z, it has its beauty as well, I admit it, but Think that Upgrading the SZ will give us a boost while being easy on our Pockets.

If you guys check for the T7600 using Google, you will be shocked by the prices, but use eBay instead, and then the magic will show............

Sony :: Bluetooth Mouse Lives 3 Months While ON All The Time

Apr 8, 2009

I recently bought a Sony Bluetooth mouse and on the packaging it says that the provided batteries could last for three months. I'm confused on how this is supposed to be used. Does it mean that it will last three month even if I leave it on and connected all the time? I have my laptop docked and it stays on 24/7. If I leave this mouse connected with the laptop, will it still last three months?

In the mouse settings window of the Control Panel, under Bluetooth, the mouse shows only 85% charge remaining after only 4 days of the type of usage described above!

Sony :: CW2 Battery

May 21, 2010

Either I'm being really dense (possible) or the battery on my CW2 is jammed. I'veonly just got it so it's the first time i've tried to remove the battery.

It does come out the same way it went in doesn't it? I've unlocked the lock switch and whilst holding the 'release' switch im trying to lift the battery from the the recess next to the release and lock switch.

One side of the battery (on the release switch side) seems to lift slightly but the other side isn't coming out at all. It's almost as if lock is still in place.

Sony :: SZ Battery

May 20, 2009

I got my laptop around 3 years ago, it's a Sony Vaio VGN SZ1M/B.

The battery stopped working completely around 1 1/2 years ago, since then I just took it out and have been forced to use it at my desk.

I'm going on holiday in a few weeks and fancy getting a new battery so I can use the laptop on the trip.

I just called my local Sony Centre (UK), who said they could order a new one from Sony for 190!

I've had a look on the net, but all the online battery websites seem really dodgey, does anyone know where I can get a battery for a more reasonable price?

The battery that came with the laptop has a model number of VGP-BPS2C, but I'm not sure if there's a slightly newer, yet obsolete model out?

Is it ok to get a battery that's not made by Sony? and if so where. Or if not, where can I get a real Sony battery for a reasonable price?

Sony :: Battery On FW 490 CTO

Jul 22, 2009

I have purchased the FW 490 CTO about two weeks back, but the battery seems bo giving me some issues. Can somebeody please confirm if the problem that I am facing is an issue or it is quite normal.

I have configured my notebook for super battery care function in order to protect its life. So far it seems to be doing a good job that it keeps the battery charged for only 50%. But when I Shut down the notebook overnight and restart it in the morning the battery levels are down to 25%. I have no clue as to how 25% of the battery is getting depleted overnight even though I shutdown my laptop.
