Preferred Solution: Asus laptop stopped giving low battery warning 10%

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Give it a good long charge. After that does the charge indicator show (which I assume is on the laptop)?Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I've been trying to put together a new system and have run into a host of problems. The next in the queue is my new Asus A7N8X-E Deluxe MB keeps giving me the "System failed due to CPU over-clocking" error. Problem is that I'm not OC'ing! I'm running all new components. The CPU is a XP 3000+ w Barton core 400FSB.

The only thing I can think of is the RAM. Do I have to use 400MHz RAM with this MB/CPU configuration? I'm running 333MHz RAM and have tried to tone down the CPU but still does the same thing. Resetting the CMOS gives me a POST or 2 before gagging.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Hi, well i really dont know anything about computers what so ever, but for a few days now, my Acer Laptop has been shutting down when theres 19% left of the battery, or 20 minutes without warning.

A:Laptop dies at 19% without a 'low battery' warning. Help?

click start / windows
type power options and select it
select change plan settings on your current power plan
click change advanced power settings
go to battery
check the low and critical battery level and actions.

if those aren't set in 20% it probably means your battery is out of calibration.

My Asus X44H often shuts down (immediately) when unplugged, even though the battery monitor (Battery Bar Pro) I use shows that there is maybe 70%plus battery power left. It will run on battery OK for a while, then sometimes I get an audio warning that power is low, but often, as I say, not, the laptop just goes black.

The battery is now getting old, but before I buy a replacement, is this definitely a problem with the battery itself, or could there be some other issue here?

I don't have any problems when using a/c power..


A:Laptop shuts down with no warning when on battery

Hello martinlest. I'm Brian. Definitely sounds like a shot battery. Will the laptop power back on after the blackout or does it do nothing? After it goes off, reattach the AC, boot up and see what percent the battery shows. I am having one of my old units do the same and the battery is 2 or 3 percent when I bring the laptop back up on AC. It'll charge to 100% after a couple of hours and repeat the same exact thing 30 minutes after I disconnect the AC.
Let Me know.

Hi, From last few days I facing the issue that my laptop shuts down without any warrning only on battery, usually after using the 50% of battery.And battery is not charging more than 98%.Here are my laptop specs and details battery is discharging more quickly as well. (Laptop is not warrenty now) Any suggestion or recomandation please... Thanks,Yahya.

A:Laptop shuts down without warning on battery

You need to run a battery status test which you can do by tapping F2 as you power up to get into diagnostic mode. If you are out of warranty and the laptop is over 2 years old the first thing we think of with battery problems is that the battery is old and needs replacing.

My Toshiba laptop battery (vista) keeps dying without any pop up warning whatsoever. I can assign a sound to remind me, but I usually have the volume turned down. I would prefer a pop up warning. My other Dell laptop has a pop up bubble that comes up at various stages of battery power. Is there some way to get this from Vista, or maybe independent software for this?

A:LOW laptop battery pop-up warning program needed

Copy the text in the following code block into Notepad.
Save it on the desktop as BatCheck.vbs. Be sure to change the Save as Type: box to All Files when saving.

[plain]strComputer = "."
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\wmi")
Set colItems = objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * From BatteryStatus Where Voltage > 0")
For Each objItem in colItems
If objItem.PowerOnline = True Then
Msgbox "Running On Battery" & vbCRLF & "Remaining capacity: " & objItem.RemainingCapacity, vbOkOnly + vbCritical + vbSystemModal
End If
While connected to AC power with the battery fully charged, double click the file to run it.
It will display a popup saying you are running on battery, and a Remaining capacity number. I need the number when the battery is fully charged. Then I can modify this a bit so it will display percent remaining. Then we run the modified script as a scheduled task every 5-10 minutes, and only display the popup when the percentage drops below whatever number you want.

A couple months ago, my laptop stopped giving me a low battery warning. It would just die when the battery was too low. This wasn't a big deal a couple months ago because I was on summer vacation, but now that school is in session, I will lose my notes and homework without much chance to revive. I have tried adjusting the warning levels in the advanced power settings, but that did nothing. I tried talking to a Windows representative via chat, but he brought up 2 payment plans so they could fix it. I believe there is a way that doesn't require payment for some guy to remotely fix my laptop.

Could well be the battery. Mine shuts down when the battery gets to 75% due to a faulty battery. I dual boot OSX and Windows and it happens on both so it is certainly not a software issue.

A:Asus laptop battery won't charge

You can likely take the battery to a service center to have it checked, or find someone with a laptop that uses the same battery to see if yours will charge. Of course, it never hurts to have an extra battery around.

Incidentally, I think it a good practice to somehow 'mark' those removable components to ensure that no monkey business has taken place with the servicer. Most are reputable, but as in all occupations, there are those who are willing to excercise immoral practices.

Also of possible help, I haven't checked any of these links, but you should find some useful info:

you'll need to open the laptop, locate the battery--the number 'should' be on the top side of it--if you're not comfortable dismantling your machine--a shop would be useful.

you could try contacting asus about the specific battery #

A:No Battery Is Detected error on ASUS Laptop

The laptop not being able to turn on from the battery is a hardware issue. There may also be a software issue in Windows, but missing drivers etc, will not stop a laptop from booting up from the battery to the BIOS. You can boot to the BIOS with no OS installed. The battery has likely failed and needs to be replaced, or its fully discharged and not being recharged. It should charge even if the laptop is off, as long as the power pack is plugged in. My ASUS and my ACER laptops will charge the battery when powered off and plugged in. Is this a new or second hand device? If it's new, I'd return it.

So my laptop's going on three years old here. And just the other day, it was working perfectly fine until I noticed it was getting insanely hot. Not terribly long after that, it suddenly and without warning shut down. It was when I had turned it back on that I noticed that my fan wasn't working. It's now been roughly a week, and the fan hasn't come back online, and since it's the beginning of June, my laptop is having some major heat management issues.

So, I don't want to have to crack my laptop open to take a look inside, but I fear it's my only option. I've tried using compressed air, or searching for any way possible to start the fan up from Windows, but all hope seems lost. Any suggestions on how to fix this problem?

Hello guys,

I have laptop Asus UL30A for more than 2 years with windows 7 home edition. Everything worked fine, but suddenly on change occurred:

The battery charging stops exactly at 33%. It is stated that "33% available (plugged in, charging)", but it never exceeds this value. Since it is that "nice" value (exactly 1/3) I am convinced, that it is not hardware or battery error, but something with the operating system and drivers.

(I know that in windows 8 is software, which allows to not charge a battery fully in order to extend its lifetime, but I don't have such a software in my windows 7).

Does anybody have an advice for me, how can I charge my laptop fully please???

Thanks a lot in advance.

Hi and welcome to the Forum
Have no personal knowledge but the following is an exert from this Web Site:
Asus Zenbook UX32VD Review - Watch CNET's Video & Read Our Review - page 2

All three of the Asus Zenbook models we tested had very solid battery life, but not spectacular. The UX32VD has higher-end components, so it may be forgiven for only running for 5 hours and 13 minutes in our video playback battery drain test (it will certainly run less when the GPU is engaged). The UX32A and UX31A ran for 5 hours and 16 minutes and 6 hours and 16 minutes, respectively. Other ultrabooks can run for 1 to 2 hours longer, but these times should get you through a full day if you close the lid and put the laptop to sleep when not actively using it.

I have had my ASUS G51VX laptop for a couple years now and it's still going strong. However, just recently the built-in SD card reader has stopped reading cards for some reason. When I pop in a card Windows will make the sound that a USB device has been plugged in and then a couple seconds later it will make the unplugged sound. The "Removable Storage Device" does not show up in Computer. I've tried looking through the Device Manager to find the card reader and re-install the driver, but I can't seem to find it anywhere. I suppose it is one of the USB controllers. I've also tried multiple SD cards so I know it's not the card.

Anyone have any ideas? Thanks!

Also, if you have another machine you could test the drive in, that would be great. If not, no big deal.

You can also try updating your chipset drivers and BIOS.

So, I know that svchost.exe when not in system32 is bad thing, but I don't really know what to do in this situation. This usually pops up when I am just browsing anywhere, and nothing to me is being blocked.  The IP is from Luxembourg?  Another forum told me that it belonged to sokroveno, a Warez site, but I've never been there.
I have run the svchost.exe through VirusTotal, bytehero found "Trojan.Win32.Heur.Gen", nothing else turned up anything.I have the standard Windows Firewall running.

I recently replaced the BIOS battery in my 8 year old PC, which I pulled out the garage after 2 years. When I first switched it on I got the warning - no big surprise given the age of the PC. I did ask how fresh the battery stock was when I bought the new battery, and was assured it should be fine.

Having replaced the battery I'm still getting the message about low battery voltage. I think it unlikely the new battery is faulty (but have no way to check it)...any ideas?

The PC is a Dell Dimension 8300 running latest SP of XP if that helps



A:[SOLVED] low battery voltage warning - new battery!

Googling 'Dell Dimension 8300 low cmos battery voltage warning' gets some historical (and hysterical in some cases) anecdotes about this issue.

I'd suggest you power off, pull plug, press and hold the power button for 3 seconds, open case, pull cmos battery, clean cmos battery socket with a q-tip and some isopropyl (a SMALL amount), allow to dry, wipe battery contact surfaces CLEAN, reinsert battery, close case, plug it in and power up.

In response to customer reports of unexpected battery gauge behavior on Y40-70 and Y40-80 laptops, Lenovo determined the battery gauge software is performing as expected. The unusual gauge results being reported are a reflection of the battery reaching end of life.
Lenovo has released a Service TIP to assist customers with obtaining battery replacements under warranty, or if out of warranty, to find a replacement battery from Lenovo-approved vendors. The Service TIP can be found here:
The part numbers for Y40-70/80 batteries are:
Y40 SP/A L13M4P01 7.4V48Wh 4cell bty (Y40-70/Y40-80) 121500248
Y40 LG L13L4P01 7.4V48Wh 4cell bty (Y40-70/Y40-80) 121500249 substitute part 121500251
Y40 CP/C L13C4P01 7.4V48Wh 4cell bty (Y40-70/Y40-80) 121500259 substitute part 121500251
To determine which battery came with your Y40 notebook, instructions for removing the bottom cover can be found in the Hardware Maintenance Manual pdf here. An alternative to opening your system (which does not void warranty) is to search for batteries using the model/product number located on the bottom cover.

A:Battery Recalibration warning...


My name is Mike, Iím a Technical Analyst located at Dell corporate headquarters in Round Rock, TX. Iím part of an internet outreach team developed to interact with the online community regarding technical questions and issues that customers face with Dell products. I read your question and wanted to offer some help.

If the battery is still receiving errors after the recalibration then you may be looking at a failing battery. Lithium Ion batteries are considered a consumable unit and are only warranted for 1 year. After this amount of time the battery can experience lower charging thresholds, shorter life spans, and dead cells. Recalibration can help with some of these problems, but it sounds like your battery cannot recover.

You can search online for a replacement battery or contact our spare parts department at 1-800-357-3355 and provide them with the service tag and they should be able to give you a quote on the battery. If you do go with a 3rd party seller please make sure that the battery is Dell branded as these are the ONLY batteries tested and proven to safely work with our systems. Iíve seen a lot of people go with generic batteries and end up completely destroying the system or worse so again, look for a Dell Logo on the battery itself or purchase one from an authorized Dell supplier. I hope this information is helpful.

Thank you,

OK so Windows used to warn me my battery is low when it is at 10%. However, it no longer does, so it will now shut down without warning me to plug in my charger.

Hello TJ,

Double check to see what you have set under Battery in your Power Options settings like below. Make sure that you have the "Low" and "Critical" percentage and action set for the level and action you want.

Low needs to be a higher percentage than Critical for Low's action to be performed first.

Is this your first time to put a system together?

Your parts look good from what I can see. What PSU will you be using?

If it is your first time, be sure you use the riser pins in your case when installing the motherboard. A mistake many people make is installing the motherboard directly into the case, shorting it out and often damaging some parts.

The only other potential problem I see is finding all the 64bit drivers. Does Asus have them ready for you to download on their support pages? I'd download those and have them ready.

Good luck!

I'm having a win 64 bit laptop 1607 build, recently it shown a warning message stating battery less than 9 % , but when checked battery status in taskbar showed 33%, so i ignored it , but this keeps on popping up, is there a problem with my laptop battery or is it a technical glitch ?

A:showing false battery low warning

Hi, how old is the laptop?
And is the warning message about less than 9% definitely about the laptop battery?
I only ask as I get alerts about my phone battery in the notifications.

The battery is no longer functioning properly. Temove it and leave the battery out of the notebook. Purchase a replacement guaranteed compatible battery. Make sure you purchase it from a vendor who gives a one year warranty.

Hello everyone, I have a HP 15 Touchsmart. This started happening to me yesterday in the afternoon. My laptop will shut off at around 27% battery life. The low battery message does not come on till around 15% battery life, but regardless no low battery warning message appears.  After it shuts off it will not turn on unless the charge is plugged into it.  Has anyone experienced this before?? Any feedback or advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!

Hi.I have a x201 laptop. I have two batteries - one original 6-cell, which is pretty old and one non-original 9-cell, which is rather new.When I unplug the computer from power, with either battery, what happens is that it shows that it has fairly normal percentage left, and that it also has fairly normal time left (for example, yesterday I used the 9-cell, and it showed 95% and about 3 hours), at the beginning it drops fairly normally (with the 9-cell it was about 20 minutes later when it showed 84%, so about 10% for 20 min use, which is reasonable).But then, after mere minutes (let's say 5 more minutes or so), with no warning at all, the battery is at 0, and the computer hibernates.Since this is happening with both batteries, and in the same everything-is-fine-until-it's-not manner, I don't really think it's a battery issue, but rather suspect it might be firmware\software\driver related. Any thoughts?

I have had this computer for a few years and a few months ago the battery slowly stopped holding a charge until it stopped working all together Leaving the battery connected to the computer made the computer run wonky so I took it out completely Recently I got a new battery to replace the old one in hopes of making my computer portable again but it is doing basically the same thing except the battery is at full charge rather than rapidly depleating Basically what happens is the battery is at full charge- great I disconnect the power cord and then A few seconds later there is a popping sound and the computer goes completely dead until I plug it in again and start it up proceeding with the 'windows didn't shut down correctly' screen ect This has lead me to believe that in essence power warning Computer down without on battery when no... shuts something is wrong with the computer itself Computer shuts down without warning on battery power when no... making it in essence 'allergic to batteries' I cannot afford a new computer at this point and at the time I spent a great deal more money to buy a better laptop so that I WOULDNT have issues with it or have to replace it every years nbsp Is this something that has to be brought to a computer mechanic who can take the thing apart and physically repair it As a side note I have to shut down the computer by unplugging it or else when I start it up again I will not get my user account to appear- it will just be the blue background without any options to shut down or log in availible This problem is worse with a battery attached to the computer- it takes removing the battery and incorrectly re-starting several times for the user Computer shuts down without warning on battery power when no... account to appear- I can practically never move my computer Or shut it down properly Ever without these issues

Experiencing regular low bttery warnings with my Lenovo Ideapad 700 - battery status shows battery charge of 70%, then suddenly low battery warning appears, as well as battery icon changes for low battery icon, basically after a second the warnng disappears, as well as battery indicator shows battery charge of 70% again. This occurs randomly quite regularly. What could cause this? Quite annoying, although not a problem otherwise.

I recently added a brand new Cyberpower EC650LCD UPS to my desktop computer setup.

Since then, I've been getting "low battery" notifications even though my UPS is fully charged and running smoothly.

Any ideas why Windows 10 would be showing this notification on a desktop?

A:Windows 10 Desktop keeps showing low battery warning

Is the low battery message showing in the Cyberpower UPS software?
Or is it a Computer warning at bootup? If a Computer warning, then your CMOS battery on your motherboard may need replacing.

In this case, you can follow the steps below and check if that works:1. Right-click on the battery icon at the bottom of the screen and select "Power Options".2. If you are not able to view the battery icon, you can go to "Power Options" by clicking the "Start" button, clicking "Control Panel", clicking "System and Security", and then clicking "Power Options" (this step may vary depending upon your Windows version).3. Click "Change plan settings" and then click "Change advanced power settings".4. In the next popup, first check if "Balanced [active]" is the actual active profile.5. Then click on "Battery"-"low battery notification" and check if both options are "ON".6. If the options are not On, turn them On and click Apply -> Ok. If the issue still persists, you can contact nearest Acer service center using the following link for further assistance: Hope this will help you.

Battery Issue - Lenovo V570 (Laptop) - Battery Model L09S6Y02

First off I for the most part do not use the battery. It is normally detached from the laptop. I only attach it to periodically charge it and test prior existing charges' performance.

O.K. here is the problem. I attach battery attachment, computer does not make it to the window screen more often than not. When it does, it freezes at the please wait loading screen.

I rarely use the battery at all, but I want all my equipment up and functional. It's life should still be good for I periodically recharge it. I think since I've had the laptop I've only recharged it a total of 6 or 7 times and that's been a year or so.

I, for the moment at least have the battery working power adapter attached. What did I do? I uninstalled Avast (freeware version) ?

I learned from prior experience that running two of any system utility software can cause problems, but it normally restricts itself to what it is protecting. Then I remembered: "If you remove the possible whatever is left however in probable must be the truth."

Next phase of testing is test the battery on it's own.

I am sure someone has post this before. I apologize for the repetition. I have a 3.5 year old Benq LCD monitor and it just shut down this morning without any warning. I can't turn it back on. I mean I can turn the power on and everything looks normal except there's nothing on the screen. I have read that it could be the back light went out, but wouldn't it happen gradually over the time? So is it the back light or is it something else?

There's no dealer/service support at where I live and I really need a monitor to get some work done...AND it's snowing. So screwed!!!

A:LCD Monitor stopped working without warning

Will the monitor menu come up if you press the button?

Either the backlight has died or the power section for it has died.

Sounds like you need a new monitor, they are fairly cheap these days.

A:Bought a new dell battery and still my laptop battery doesn't charge!

Hi Utkarsh. I Actually FIXED this problem months back. and I exactly want to help you on this so that you can fix it yourself too..
the problem which is creating your battery to show an exclamatory mark is your power settings.
so follow these steps to get rid of that sign and a perfectly working battery.
1) Click on your battery icon (left click) you should see an option called " More power options" at the bottom of the popup.
click "More power options"
2) Now you will be taken to your control panel where you can see all of your power plans and under each plan, you will see an option called "Change plan settings"
3) Click on "Change plan settings" for your active power plan. Now you will get redirected to another control panel window, where you can see two kind of power options to get adjusted. that is, when you battery is plugged and when your battery is unplugged.
4) Don't touch those options, just click on "Change advanced power settings" at the bottom left of that window. THIS IS THE AREA WHERE WE NEED TO FIX!
5)After you click on "Change advanced power setttings", you will see a POWER options popup, go to the bottom and then you can see something called "Battery" with a plus sign on the left. click it.
6) Now you just have to change the levels for the following values
                   --> Critical battery level ( you can change it to 10%)
                   ---> Low battery level ( you can change it to 20%)
So I hope this works!
Reply me back when you've succeeded fixing it.

It's so strange. Today when I turned on my laptop, suddenly, there was a message that my battery has problems so the computer might shut down suddenly. I tried different strategies, like uninstalling the battery driver, or letting the computer completely die. When it turned off itself at 6%, I turned it back on, and it was at 2 minutes battery life. Then in a few minutes, it said 4 minutes battery life for 6%. Now, it's passed an hour, and it says 3 minutes, but changes sometimes to 1-4 minutes. The battery meter is completely wrong, and I don't know what to do since it is closing the computer way too early. I'm still not sure what the problem is. Please help me.

Ok this might be might not (COMPAQ M2105)

I ended up replacing my motherboard for a model with more features (SD readers blah blah).

I took it all apart and put it all back with the new board when i go into windows (and even before while booting)...the orange lights would come on for a second...then beging to flicker

while in just will either not charge the battery..or flicker from AC to battery

i CAN power the unit on with the battery alone, and i CAN power the unit with the cord alone...

lastly, my old motherboard (which had a HD connector problem)...still WILL charge the i'm sure its not the battery...i don't think...

i also dont' think its the AC adapter since it is the same piece I used on both motherboards.....

what to do................

Hopefully you are experienced in working on and repairing laptops/notebooks... and you carefully handeled the replacement motherboard and didn't damage it. Repairing laptops takes considerable skill and caution.

It does sound like the "new" motherboard is bad unfortunately. How did you handle the "old" operating system restore to the "new" motherboard?

(I5 750 & Asus P7P55D) wouldn't it come through the system audio That's why I was thinking the board itself had a warning Anyone know where the noise is coming from c isn't really hot enough for a warning is it

A:CPU Heat Warning Tone: Where is it coming from? (I5 750 & Asus P7P55D)

63 is not that high for your CPU. However, you should never use 2 temp monitoring programs at the same time. Both reading the same sensors can cause false readings. Core temp does have a warning if you set it. I'm not familar with your board, so can't answer some of your questions, but most modern CPUs and boards have a fail safe shut down that will shut the computer down if the CPU gets overheated, to protect it from damage.

I am becoming more and more concerned about my laptop's battery each and every passing day. When I check the bottom right of my computer screen to check if my computer battery is completely charged, it says "0% available (plugged in, not charging)". I have had to buy two new batteries because of the same thing and they also read "0% available (plugged in, not charging)". When I unplug my laptop from the power source, it turns off automatically. I cannot even bother calling Dell to check this issue for me because I bought this computer off the street for $35.

My question in general is how do I get this problem fixed and how do I keep an eye on how my laptop computer charges correctly (or not)???
