For the last few days if my laptop isn't plugged in it is running out of battery life very quickly, maybe 10 minutes. I've also had an error message pop up telling me that there appears to be a battery problem and it needs replacing.
The machine is only 18 months old, it is never on for more than 5-6 hours per day is this normal to run down so quickly.
Ever since I've had the machine the underneath of it gets very hot to the point where I can't actually have it on my lap without something underneath it.
Are these problems normal? Any suggestions as to how I replace the battery (buying one) appreciated. Thanks
It gets hot because its using a Desktop CPU in it, this also runs battery down faster. I have a HP 510 Laptop with old Centrino CPU it does not get hot at all as its a Mobil CPU. But what they have done is fit a cheap small battery, I cannot win, as this runs down after about one and a quarter hour. Not bothered buying a bigger battery as I now also have a Samsung Netbook nc10 that can run on battery up to about ten hours 10 inch screen Loaded with XP home
