low battery life and screen shortage
When I move my laptop from another room the screen goes completely blank...Also need help as to why my battery life is so low....I leave the laptop charged over nite and it has maybe 35% of juice the next day...Can someone give me an answer as to why this happens...
Does the screen go blank when you move it when it's plugged in, or is it limited to battery power?
Regarding the battery, I'd double click the battery meter in the taskbar, then go to the "battery information" tab. There should be a button in there for "battery maintenance". You probably want to do a battery reset. I've done this every so often (usually 6 months or so). It will go through a full charge, drain, and charge cycle and reset the battery gauge. It will also bring back a pretty good portion of your full charge capacity, possibly giving you a lot more time on battery power.
I hope this helps.
edit: I'm a ThinkPad user myself. I've used the same R52 for the past 5 years and repaired several internal "faults".
the first issue might be a flexing-issue. This means there is a part broken off the logic board, but the issue only shows up, when the logic board is flexed.
The battery life depends on the battery health status. You can get a tool called battery maximizer from lenovo, that shows you the battery health status.
