Lenovo Yoga 510 battery issues

Hi guys,

I bought new laptop - Lenovo yoga 510-14AST. I am a student and that's why I bought laptop with touchscreen. I also wanted to have a battery that handles about 6 hours of writing or surfing through the internet. They said that battery should last for 8,5 hours. But that's not my case. My battery runs only 2 hours, so I need to charge it a lot. Could you help me? Should I make a factory reset? I also tried to update all drivers. No change.

Every idea is appreciated.

Thank you for your time

Best wishes

Verify if Paint 3D is using the Nvidia GPU. Because it has a service which is running in the background and keep the Nvidia GPU active.

No, I can't see that it is running in the background. But I made a reset of paint 3D, so it should not work unless it will be activated.

Bought the same model last week, and the battery does not last more then 1.5 hours ona full charge. Looking for a solution, otherwise will take the laptop back and demand my money back.

What I got to know that video graphics isn't working well. Try to work with brightness. First lighten it up and then darken it. You will notice that on the last degree you'll see nothing at all on the screen. You have to update graphics drivers. It will help you to make 2.5 hours. Nothing more.
