Problem in my battery during the installation of Windows 8.1

Asked By 30 points N/A Posted on -

Hello experts,

I updated my Windows 8 to 8.1. Before the update, my laptop's battery  was 6-8 hours. But after the update, the remaining battery level was 3-4 hours. I then used the Windows Backup and decided to wipe my hard disk drive. The battery level becomes 7-hours left. I'm not sure if this issue occurs because of the update or because of the files that was deleted from my hard drive. Can someone tell me what is causing the battery level to change?

Hi Bob T Smith,

This is not a big problem at all that you mentioned in your question. There's nothing to worry as Your laptops battery is still hundred percent  ok.

Theirs might be some problem at the time when you are installing Windows. Nothing to be worry. Keep going with the greatest creation of Microsoft.

Hope this will help you.
