Re: Z580 Windows 8 Battery Issues

You wear level of 5% is ok, so it looks like your battery is fine, have you tried a battery gauge reset in power mangment, next you need to check for any apps using too much cpu/gpu power, for this you can use the windows taskmanger to check your cpu usage, if you have a dedicated cpu you can use gpu-z to check your gpu power usage.


Also if you install battery bar it will show how much power is being used when you are running on battery.


Just a few things to check.
