edited July 14 in Predator Laptops
I am really dissapointed on the battery acer had provided for the triton 500 laptop. I have it only a few weeks and the battery really stress me up so I just wanna know whether its the battery problem or the charging circuit in the motherboard. So this is my problem. When i fully charged my laptop to 100%, and then i plugged the charger off my laptop it straight away turns to 99% not even a second. Next, when i does heavy gaming, the laptop battery decreases even if it is charging and somethimes the charging indicator is not even light up while i gaming after sometime. When i run battery report it shows that my full charge capacity is more than the delight capacity and how is it even possible? Not only that, sometimes after i off the charger after charged 100%, the battery straight turns to 92% so may i know, is it my battery problem or charging circuit which is the motherboard problem. I really hope that it is the battery problem and not the motherboard

    Hello! Can you tell me the exact model of the notebook? Example an515-51-7kz!
    About the fact that the battery is used even when the power adapter is connected, this occurs in the current gamers notebooks, when it is necessary to provide more performance. However, the battery will only discharge up to 40% and then charge automatically!
    About the fact that the windows report identifies a load that is greater than the actual capacity, have you tried to uninstall and remove the battery and power adapter drivers from the device manager and then restart the notebook? Have you also tried resetting the battery?

    Is it true that is is normal for the predator triton 500 to discharge while playing high graphic games even it is plugged in ? This is my model number 

    Predator PT515-51

  • egydiocoelhoegydiocoelho Posts: 26,639ACE Trailblazer
    Yes, this is normal when there is demand! so I recommend that you put the battery in high performance as well.

    Maybe a windows error! Have you tried removing the battery and power adapter driver from the device manager?

    I have done everything I tried run windows update reinstall battery drivers everything but I haven’t touch the battery itself(taking it out and putting it back since it is not a detachable battery) will it possibly be my battery itself is a problem or should I contact acer for a battery replacement?
  • xapimxapim Posts: 3,167ACE Pathfinder
    Well if you already did a Acer windows factory reset (fresh install)  i would probably send it for a battery replacement as last resort
