Having problems with your PC Laptops ?
The battery lasts only 30 minutes
\015 3 month old lap top battery lasts only 30 minutes. Is there any way this can be improved? It has been like this since I bought it.\015
No there is no way to improve it. Sounds like you bought one with a semi bad cell. If you were given a warranty with your purchase (very doubtful) then you should get an exchange.
