I have a y550p and my laptop would over heat and kill my battery. even though i know it has alot of battery life left, when i remove the AC adaptor the laptop dies within half a second. and when i plug ac adaptor back on, and turn the laptop back on, the battery says 90% available, plugged in and charging. and it stays at 90% doesn't go up or down. this happened with my other laptop battery that i had just bought too.. im tired of buying new batteries, help!

Just clarafying are you saying overheating your laptop once caused your battery to start failing? Or are you saying your laptop overheats when its on the battery which causes the battery to fail?
If anything take your battery to batteries + to have them check it out. I highly doubt (if this is what your trying to say) overheating your laptop caused your battery to fail.

Again overheating your laptop (which is NOT good at all) should not do anything to your batteries. Again take them to batteries + and have them tested. They do it for free and they can tell you right away whats wrong with them. I just helped someone who did this and found out the chip inside the battery was faulty.
Is energy management set to battery health or battery runtime?
I hate to say it but you should probable figure out this overheating issure before anything. Have you dusted out the fans reciently?

Yeah your vacuum isnt going to cut it. I always use a aircompressor but there is a danger in this. Compressed air has water vapor in it so you will always want to wait like a min before turning the laptop back on. The safest way is to grab one of those compressed air cans from you local office supply store.
Yeah just make sure energy managements set to battery runtime. The other setting will stop your battery at a certen %. Mine will stop at 50% when its enabled.
Im with you on its strange to have two batteries to fail at the same time but I cant think of any reason overheating the laptop will breake a battery. Unless the cpu is directly connected to the cpu and all of the cpu's heat is being transfered to the battery this should never be the cause of this.
