Windows 7: VAIO Laptop Battery EXTREMELY Fast Out

VAIO Laptop Battery EXTREMELY Fast Out

Hello everyone!

My VAIO Laptop Battery is running out at a ridiculous fast speed. When it's fully charged at 100% it runs out in 5-10 minutes while it says it will last 2 hours. I tried setting it on Energy saving or something. But it still runs out fast. Any help?

How old is the laptop?

Laptop batteries can die in as little as a year

But also, you may need to "recalibrate" your battery (and this also "cycles" it as well, something that should be done often)

Look about half way down the page here:

I think the laptop is... 2-3 years old? LOL.

Well give the full steps for a recalibrate/cycle above a go it may help, but after that, if it doesn't improve then the battery is really a gonner

Using the right power plan, adjusting the screen brightness, and unplugging computer peripherals that you're not using helps make your battery last longer between charges.

In addition, make sure you have all the latest updates from the Vaio website.

But after 2-3 years of heavy battery discharge/recharge you might very well need a new one.
