Hello everybody, I had a look at batterycare - very useful tool, but isn't this quite strange when I unplug my laptop's AC adapter?

Official Fix!

I have officially solved this problem,

1. Flip your laptop sideways in a smooth fashion (fast but not too fast) while the charger is plugged in

(lift your laptop slightly in the air and hold the left side and push it upwards to the right direction and smoothly push it back and down)

The errors and inconvenient messages will instantly dissapear!



Try it yourself, maybe try more than once if it doesn't work, I'm running a HP Pavillion and it fixed it.
Enjoy

I have an Acer Timeline 3810T w/c was 6months old, rarely used. Battery lasts 8 hrs+. After a week of installing Win7 on another partition, my battery suddenly went DEAD. Won't charge, no nothing. Now tell me after 6 months of problem free use, all of a sudden it conks out when I installed Win7.... I'm pretty sure it's the OS from what I'm reading all over the internet. It does not happen to all laptop models, but it does affect some.

I really want to dump VISTA for Win7, so please MS.... FIX THIS ISSUE!!!

And how would Windows 7 have affected your battery so? The battery is its own micro-computer that manages and maintains the battery. Windows could do nothing to kill your battery. The fault lies in your hardware. Or your battery is reaching end of life. Even when not used a battery loses power/life, they are also sensitive to heat the hotter it is the faster they lose power and life.

There is nothing for Microsoft to fix. It is reporting only what the hardware tells it, nothing more nothing less.

Obviously you haven't read alot about this.... contrary to the old belief that an OS can never damage hardware, that's where you are wrong. I don't have the time to shed light on this for you. You can use google if you want. And btw, I've owned dozens of laptops over the years... I know when it's something hardware or not. Reaching end of life? It's barely 6mo old, and rarely used. Gives 8hrs+ usage prior to using Win7, and you say it's reaching it's end? hehehe. There's a good article on this issue, I suggest you read it 1st.

On a sidenote: I'm on a new set of batteries(1mo old) right now. I'll reinstall Win7 back on the Timeline laptop... mind you it has been working flawlessly for a month now. If the thing dies on me again on Win7, would it still be hardware? I'll spare another $150 for another battery, no problem.

Here's 1 testimony I copied from a bit-tech.net article:

"Yeah sure!

I have HP Pavilion dv5 and it had vista on it. Always wanted to get rid of it and at the launch of win 7 i changed my OS. After a week of use my laptop died in the middle of the work. Recharged it and after the incident my laptop's battery could last twice less than it used to.. Now it lasts ca 15 min.

STOP TALKING BS AND START FIXING THE PROBLEM, YOU ARROGANT MS

I tell everyone not to come here and say "Omg it's your battery.. bla bla". IT'S NOT!
Hate companies hiding their problems. If i knew it was going to happen i would have gone for the Snow Leopard."


It's funny that my battery problem also stemmed about a week after installing Win7....hmmmm. Like I said, it does not affect most laptops. Only some. But I also thought it could also be solved by a BIOS update from ACER, they have been churning out updates multiple times in a span of a few months. Hopefully this problem is one of the bugs addressed. Peace.

Obviously you do not understand how Lithium-ion batteries used in laptops work. Windows or any other piece of software could not damage one of these batteries. Each battery is designed in such away to prevent such things from happening.

Yet you have time to post on a forum? I take it there is nothing on google?

When does owning make you an expert? Since my grandmother owns a desktop does that make her an expert?

How long a battery lives is not set in stone, rarely used means nothing it still losses its charge and life just sitting. How long a Lithium battery last depends greatly on the environment conditions, the manufacturing process, how it is stored....there is a long list of variables that can affect the life.

Oh wow... you're really an expert. Now, explain this. I also have an HP Mini 1000, and last year HP gave out warnings to immediately update the BIOS to prevent a "bulging" from occuring on the battery. The actual batter BULGES physically, there are even pictures showing the problem... And you say no piece of software can affect hardware? Please....
