How to increase laptop battery life 100% guaranteed steps.

Every laptop user these days have the same headache of limited backup time of batteries. As far as your system is new, you will have a good backup time but when it becomes a few months or years old you will definitely face problem of limited battery life and comes the question how to increase laptop battery life?

Here I’m giving you a solution to increase battery life of laptop upto a sufficient extent.

To save power, make your computer do less in general:
Don’t use a screensaver. They’re unnecessary on modern displays and will drain your battery to do nothing useful when your display could be off and saving power,
Run fewer programs in the background,
Reduce CPU usage,
Avoid maxing out your RAM.

There is an inbuilt command in your computer to increase battery life as well as the performance of the system but not all users are aware of it. Some laptops directly provide an interface with option termed as “POWER SAVING MODE” but if your laptop is old or don’t have this feature by default, you need not to worry because you can do the same task manually.

If you have a laptop with Windows 7 and above installed, you can run the ‘powercfg’ command using cmd.exe in administrator mode. It will display useful information about your laptop’s energy consumption and usage. If you can understand and maintain it correctly then you can extend your Battery life and performance by great amount.

100% guaranteed steps.

Step 1: Click on the Start Menu and type “CMD” in the Start Search bar.

Step 2: The search will start and it will then display an icon of “CMD”. simply right click on it and select Run as administrator.

Step 3: It will open command line, now simply run the command “powercfg -energy” without quotes. (Windows 7 users only.). Windows 8 and above can simply run the command “powercfg /energy” without quotes.

Step 4: Now Press “Enter”.

Once you successfully execute this command, Windows will run a complete scan of your system and it will find some ways to improve performance and power efficiency.

The results of this process will be saved to an HTML file with name “energy-report”, which is present in the “System32” folder of most systems depending on your drive letter. Mine is C:\, you can change to D, E or F… depending on where your Operating System is installed.

Computer Tips #10: Don’t Wear Down Connectors

Don’t Wear Down Connectors

Doesn’t it amaze you sometimes how so many things these days are covered in gold? Gold is an ounce right now, but there’s gold on even the cheapest USB connectors—take a look at the connectors on your desk right now if you don’t believe me.

How is that possible? Simple, the gold on those connectors is only 1,000th of a centimeter thick. It’s 100 times thinner than a human hair. (It’s also not pure gold.)

The problem with something that thin is that its easy to wear away. Every time you insert or remove a cord or device, a little bit of that gold plating gets worn off. Tight connections wear down faster than lose connections. All of this means that the more frequently you plug in your devices, the sooner they will stop working.

If possible, avoid unnecessary plugging in and unplugging of your devices. It’s a computer hardware maintenance tip that will protect your parts’ tips.

Computer Tips #9: Don’t Wait To Fix It

Don’t Wait To Fix It

Computer hardware maintenance means taking small steps to prevent big problems later. Nowhere in computer maintenance is this more evident than when it comes to fixing small problems before they blossom into unfixable problems later.

For example, is your computer making a weird sound? A lot of the time when I get called in to fix a totally broken computer, I later discover the computer was making weird sounds for weeks before. If they had called me earlier, I could’ve pinpointed the problem by just listening to the computer, ordered the replacement part, and made the switch in about 5 minutes of downtime. But when I get called into to fix dead computers, it usually takes several days to identify the problem and replace the broken part.

Any inconstancy in your computer devices should be investigated. If your USB flash drive doesn’t always work, or your DVD burner sometimes burns bad disks, or your computer monitor flickers occasionally—these are all problems you should investigate with a quick search on Google.

If you can’t find an answer on Google, at least write down a comprehensive description of the problem, date it, and save it for any repair technician you later call. Knowing where and when the problem started can save hours of troubleshooting because to understand computer repairs can be difficult.

Computer Tips #8: Turn Off Unused Devices

 Turn Off Unused Devices

In theory, hardware with no moving parts should last forever, and it sure looks like most electronic devices don’t have any moving parts—but what you can’t see are the electrons moving down the wires at 60% or more the speed of light.

In some places, the electrons need to cross a small gap. In these places, the electrons will sometimes pick up a tiny bit of metal from one side of the gap and deposit it on the other side of the gap. As time goes on, there is less and less metal at the starting side of the gap, until there is too little metal for the electrons to use—at that point your device just stops working. (You may get flickering for a few weeks beforehand.)

Some electricity needs to travel through electronics for as long as they are turned on, and the longer they are turned on, the sooner they will fail. You can add years of use to a device’s life just by turning it off when you aren’t using it.

Computer Tips #7: Prepare For Failure

Prepare For Failure

Prepare For Failure

Sometimes the best computer hardware maintenance is preparing for failure. All of the expensive tools you use, from your car to your computer to your cell phone, will fail eventually, so you should start preparing to replace them—especially since they’ll probably fail at the least convenient time.

For computer hardware, the device most likely to fail is your disk drive.

I used to keep a spare disk drive handy in case on of my disks failed, but with the rapidly dropping cost of hard disk drives, I think it’s better to accept the inconvenience of driving out to buy a new one every few years.

After your disk drive, the following devices are most likely to fail. You either want to have a spare handy or at least the money available to buy a replacement:

Printer (they tend to stop printing correctly, rather than break entirely. It usually isn’t worth fixing a cheap printer.)
Graphics card
Computer power supply (often starts making noises a few weeks before dying)
Power button (if you’re careful, you can hot-wire most computers to use your computer until you buy a new button LOLz 🙂 )

Computer Tips #6: Use A Surge Protector

Use A Surge Protector

Use A Surge Protector

Even if you always follow the above advice about unplugging your computer during a storm, you still need to worry about power surges frying your computer.

Power surges can happen for many reasons, including bad wiring, transformer explosions, squirrels or possums eating through power lines, and problems with other large electrical appliances in your house. You also have to worry about thunderstorms that happen when you aren’t home to unplug your computer.

To protect against unexpected power problems, buy a surge protector. Some of them even come with guarantees to replace hundreds of thousands of nairas of computer equipment if an electrical surge gets past the surge protector. This is an important part of computer hardware maintenance.

Computer Hardware Maintenance Tips #5: Unplug During Storms

Unplug During Storms

Unplug During Storms

Did you know that before radio was invented, some people used to send wireless messages by creating giant sparks? If you create a giant spark, which scientists call an electromagnetic pulse, it makes conductive metal spark in other places up to several miles away.

The problem with electromagnetic pulses is that long wires—like the wires in your house—can catch a lot of energy, creating a really big spark, and the surge of electricity from that spark can easily fry your computer.

The good news is that it’s illegal, for just that reason, to create electromagnetic pulses in most places. The bad news is that nature has her own electromagnetic pulse generator—lightning. A lightning bolt doesn’t need to hit your house to create a power surge—it doesn’t even need to be close.

Unplugging your computer from the wall is the best way to help prevent a lighting strike from destroying your computer.

Computer Tips #4: Avoid Moisture

Avoid Moisture

Everybody knows that water and electricity don’t mix, yet even I sometimes forget how sneaky water really is. When water gets in your computer, it can cause two wires to short out—to send their electricity across a path the designers didn’t intend—which will temporarily disable your computer. If the short lasts long enough, it can create enough heat to melt one or more of the tiny wires in your computer, breaking that component forever.

If it were possible, I’d suggest you only used your computer in a climate-controlled room with a no-beverages sign on the door, but here are some realistic ways you can avoid moisture damage:

Keep your computer away from windows that open. Although rain falling in through the window is one threat, I once ruined a laptop by leaving it by an open window on a foggy morning.
Be extra careful with drinks and laptops. With full-sized computers, you’re only likely to ruin the keyboard when your drink spills; with laptops, you’re likely to ruin the whole computer.
Unplug the power and (for laptops) remove the battery of any computer that might get wet. It’s ok for electronics to get wet if there’s no electricity traveling through them. (When I go camping, I always store my netbook and its battery in separate zip-lock bags.)
Don’t leave computers outdoors. I know this sounds obvious, but it’s too easy to go inside to fix a drink, get distracted, and forget about your laptop—until it starts raining.
