Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1000 Notebook ?

I can only get about 2 hours out of my battery, but it says it is supposed to have 8 hrs. i already changed everything to max battery saving.


Answers :

Is this a new purchase?

Sometimes batteries take 2-3 charge and discharges to be able to reach the manufacturers specs.

If this is not a new purchase then you have a faulty battery. Unfortunately batteries are not under warranty replacement. You could try to make a claim, but I doubt they will come to the party.

You could make noises about misleading advertising and consumer affairs, good luck
