There are reports that Microsoft’s Windows 7 the latest OS is having problems with Acer laptop batteries, many users started to experience battery problems early when windows 7 was released. Users claimed that windows 7 had damaged their battery its no more charging up does not work even in other OS, while some users reported that it will charge for few minutes and it will report that the battery is at its 100% mark and when they unplug the AC power it will last for few minutes and will shutdown the laptop the same issue they faced in other OS too after they installed windows 7.
Even users with brand new laptops also calmed that their laptops are not able to hold charge which is going against Microsoft claim that windows 7 would increase battery endurance. As per Microsoft the problem is in a tool which is used to decide whether the IBM laptop batteries have been drained, or it is unable to hold charge.
Microsoft said that the issue is with system firmware, and they are working with hardware partners to solve out the issue.
Yes, that’s correct…
I’ve read a similar thread in the Microsoft forum where hundreds were complaining about this issue where Battery is affected after installing Windows 7,,, Few persons reported that completely draining out the Battery once, resolved their issue.. Some left their Computer turned ON at the BIOS screen to drain it out… for some it worked even in Windows…
Also, the problem may be with the Lenovo laptop Batteries Checker Utility or Driver supplied from your Notebook’s manufacturer… Hence, it’s advisable to reinstall it in the Computer to resolve the issue.
One may not believe this but windows 7 did mess with my PC’s bios and also its Dvd drive. Its not opening CDs anymore and the problem just started to happen after my windows 7 installation. My computer was closing by itself. And time was also incorrect. Though now i have my issues fixed with formatting and reinstalling. But my Cd is not working properly though Dvd can be read sometimes. Its because of windows 7 cause only after window 7 installation this happened. Earlier i had vista and all things were nicely working.
