Windows 7 Laptop problem Consider Replacing your battery Icon

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So, about a year and half ago I bought my laptop from toshiba a305-S6872, Came with vista and i couldn't install AutoCad Solidworks, or Cadence, As you can see I work in the Engineering business smile.gif, so I sucked it up and bought a windows 7 Pro edition and Everything was fine until this past Holiday season, My Laptop battery meter did not look the way it was suppose to, I've done alot of research and have found no solution, My laptop is said to be windows 7 compatible so If any of you guys/gals can help a buddy out that would be great smile.gif

thanks

Rodger

here is the image of the error

can you re-calibrate the battery? it should be a bios option, you should charge the battery to full before you run it.

to boot into bios look for the screen upon power up that states something like:
F2 to enter BIOS

then press F2 and look for a battery calibration option.

- also this install of windows 7 was this a custom install or factory? you might need motherboard drivers or a special device driver. check windows devices to make sure you have all of them installed properly (no yellow exclamation points or X's)

Oh i just re-read that, you had your laptop for about a year? you likely need a replacement battery. depending on your battery use you can burn them out quickly- I have seen laptop battery's last anywhere from 6mo up to 2yr.. I would EXPECT to replace them after a year.

I have a good asus laptop that is going strong over 2 years on the factory battery, but thats just pure luck.

I also read that You can update bios features I found your laptop bio updates here, just burn it to a disk and reboot pc and set boot to cdrom, after that there is also a solution to drain battery from a full charge and then drain it to depletion and

take battery out and then reboot with battery and power plugged in, this solution solved a few peoples problems From what i have been reading Hope you have some success grouphug.gif

this battery works Very Strong, though it doesn't have the same capacitance as day 1 I am still running at about 1 1/2 to 2 hours on a full charge the problem is I see this error as a fault in the windows 7 OS, and am looking for the solution on the fix, I really appreciate the lightning fast replys
