I spoke to sager support. They said if they notice my computer is slow, it must be because of a virus since i downloaded a lot of thigns recently. However the battery issue they said wouldnt make sense though.


Right now however i dont have the red x on the battery... Basically they say wait till i getr a response from them then we decide what to do. I also cant send it back to them b/c im out of the usa at the time...


Do you think clean reinstall woudl fix this battery issue though? Also how do i show my battery cycle what prgoram do i download...

Platform Power Management Capabilities:Supported Sleep States
Sleep states allow the computer to enter low-power modes after a period of inactivity. The S3 sleep state is the default sleep state for Windows platforms. The S3 sleep state consumes only enough power to preserve memory contents and allow the computer to resume working quickly. Very few platforms support the S1 or S2 Sleep states.

You seem to have a problem with following instructions, like when I specify exactly how to paste the power report in reply box.

The power report shows you haven't even set a Power Plan which was the first step I gave you and apparently ignored. So instead of generating a power report which no one suggested here, why don't you start now with the steps I gave you, don't skip any, ask back any questions needed to get them done, then report back results as you go.

If you won't work with me then I can't help you further. You already know you need to replace your battery, so you could probably do that but it will wear out again fast because you don't have a Balanced Power plan in effect.
