My computer is AUSU. It is showing a cross icon on battery saying that “Consider replacing your battery” .
First of all, we should know. Each product has its service life. No matter how well you treat your laptop’s battery, it will eventually die. Windows doesn’t normally keep you up-to-date with your battery’s capacity level. As you use it and it weakens, you’ll just notice that your laptop doesn’t seem to last as long on battery. Eventually, when your battery reaches a low enough capacity level, Windows will warn you. You’ll see a red X appear on the standard battery icon in your system tray and, when you click it, Windows will inform you that you should “consider replacing your battery.” Windows also says that your computer might shut down suddenly because there’s a problem with your battery — in other words, your battery can’t hold enough of a charge to power your laptop for long when it’s not connected to an outlet.
When you see a red X appear on your battery. that means we should do.
1.Calibrating Your Battery for accurate battery life
Manufacturers generally recommend calibrating the battery every 2-3 months. This helps keep your battery readings accurate.
Calibrating — or recalibrating, really, as the battery was calibrated in the past when the battery had more capacity — involves letting the battery run from 100% capacity straight down to almost dead, then charging it back to full. The battery’s power meter will then see how long the battery lasts and get a much more accurate idea of how much capacity the battery has left.
After we calibrated the battery, Windows stopped warning us and the battery’s reported capacity went back up to 60.8%. The battery didn’t actually gain any additional charge, but the calibration helped the battery’s sensor actually detect how much capacity was in the battery. If Windows says it’s time to replace your battery, be sure to calibrate it first before checking its actual wear level. If you don’t, you may replace a battery that’s still in good enough shape. That would just be a waste of money.
2.Replacing Your Battery
If your laptop has a user-serviceable battery you can remove on your own. If your laptop doesn’t have a user-serviceable battery, you’ll need to contact the laptop’s manufacturer so they can crack your laptop open and change its battery for you.
Assuming you have a user-serviceable battery, you can order a replacement battery for your laptop model online. Don’t buy the cheapest third-party batteries available — buy official batteries from a reputable company.
If your capacity is dropping more quickly than you’d like, that may be a sign that you should be treating your battery better. Heat, usage, age — all of these things are the factors of laptop batteries decline.
Batteries will slowly die no matter what — even if you put your battery in a closet and never touched it, it would slowly lose capacity due to age. However, if you never use your battery — say you use your laptop at your desk most of the time and it gets rather hot, which is bad for the battery — removing the battery can certainly help prolong its life.
Therefore, in order to protect our computer, we should pay more attention to the first charge.
