Hello, I have a Dell laptop and there should not be issues seen with the battery yet because it isn't that old, but the battery will not power my laptop very long without needing plugged in. I've tried removing a USB if I'm using it, etc. but that doesn't seem to help. Are there any other ideas or troubleshooting tips I could try, or is it probably just a bad battery? Thank you.
Issues with Dell laptop battery
How old is your laptop by the way? I just want to know if it’s still covered with warranty. However let’s resolve your issue by following some of the best options that I used and proven working.
Deleting and or Removing the Unwanted programs. Removing unwanted programs running in your computer could be a great power saving option for you. The more program running in your laptop, the more power it consume.
1. Press and hold “Windows” and “R” buttons in your keyboard.
2. Run dialog box will pop-up. Type “msconfig”.
3. A new window will appear.
4. In the new window select to Startup tab.
5. Deselect the boxes by removing the check and remove the programs running that you don’t need to run. Click “Apply” button.
6. Full restart of the computer is essential to complete/apply changes.
Removing the battery instead and plug your power cord. It is not a bad idea to connect the power cord while battery is not placed to the battery compartment. For this you will be able to save the life-span of your laptop’s battery. Bringing this battery to any retail store and ask them to run diagnostic test to check if it’s ending. Usual life-span of laptop batteries will range from 3-4 years.
