Low Battery life on Acer Aspire
\015 Hello All, My Acer Aspire 5315-2848 is just under a year old and the battery life is very low. What are your suggesions?\015
I would first make sure that the AC is working. If the computer works on AC then it should be fine. I have had several batteries that lasted only a year. If you leave it plugged in all the time, that will do it. It is best to charge it and then use it on battery several times a week. Hope this helps some :>)

Acer Aspire 3000 notebook: 1) monitor displays horizontal random lines. This can be fixed by clamping the bezel to the lid, at the position of the lid release catch, using a bull-dog (spring) clip. It works, but obviously isn't a permanent answer. New screen and/or inverter indicated? 2) computer only works from the battery - about 1 hour's use from full charge. Battery charger charges the battery only when the computer is switched off and it isn't possible to run the computer using the charger
