Laptop batteries have a rated life of 500 charges or 18 months. While most of us do better than this the ONE THING you must do is to replace any failing battery before it kills the charging circuits.
HOWEVER 30 minutes is NORMAL for those Pentium 4 based machines which I don't think the 1501 came equipped with.
There are other reasons other than the usual 18 months, etc to see low battery times. The screen may be set to very bright, the CPUs are always busy (spyware, etc.) And the power settings could be non-stock.
Hey guys, my laptop batter dies really quickly and I don't know why. When it is fully charged, it only lasts about 30 minutes. Any means on how to fix it?
Thanks in advance.
