tx battery

Hi,

when i charge my palm TX it will charge fine but when i unplug it and turn it on the battery power will go down about 20% in the first few minutes and go down very fast but then will stay at like 45 or so % left for a long time...it stays on for the time advertised but i'm just curious why the battery power level acts this way

thnx in advance CS

Don't delay. There could be a failure and you don't want to have it fixed on your dime.

it's only done this recently and recently i've put in a memory card and two games on the memory card (chess genious and checkers(all though i doubt that this is the cause) but i have bad news for me also.....the warranty just expired a few weeks before this happened

also right now i'm getting ready to put a battstat program on there because the meter i was reading was the one at the top of the tx that is built in.

and thanks for the replys all!

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
