I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi there. I recently upgraded from a lumia 1320 to the new lumia 950 however this phone requires a charge twice over a 12 hour period(i use my phone moderately throughout the day). The 1320(3400mAh) gave me 2-3 days baterry life with a single charge, i have expected the 950(3000mAh) to give me atleast a day and a half due to the new software and the 1440p screen but thats not the case i lost 40% battery in 5 hours while on standby. Please note that the phone is only 4 days old and i have read other forums that suggested i do a reset of the device which i have done to no avail. On a full charge battery saver says it will last 16 hours after the reset it stated one day and 17 hours, short while later(78%) it stated that it will last only 17 hours. I really love the 950 and its awesome features but this battery is kiling me. Especially when theres a sony xperia m5 that lasts 2 days on a single charge. Nokia/ Microsoft phones were built on great Camera's, awesome sound quality and thee never ending battery life. i would be please if i can get through an entire day of use and still have 40% left over at the end of the day.

Answer:Why is my battery life draining so fast on my lumia 950?

Check data sense. Mine was draining like crazy because it was sucking data down like crazy. Unfortunately I tried everything including 2 returns and nothing improved. I went back to my 1520.

Try thisCheck settings >system > battery > which apps are using the most energy?Again, in battery section, which apps can run in the background? Can you disable those you don't need? Keep messaging enabled to run in backgroundIn battery section, you can also set up battery saver to kick in when the battery reaches a certain percentage. I keep mine on 100% so it's always on battery saver modeIn mail app, how often do you have mails to sync? Generally the longer the time period, the less the battery usageWhat about brightness settings? Is it on high or auto? Auto is better than a fixed settingIf you finds that messaging app uses a lot of battery, this could be because it's linked with skype. Go to messaging app, settings and unlink skypeIn photos app, do you have auto upload of photos enabled? If yes, try to not upload high res photos and videos unless you are charging the phone and on wifiWhen you use some apps that are not data heavy like whatsapp or mail, you can use a lower network speed like 2G.

Answer:Why is my battery life draining so fast with Windows 10 ( what can be done to correct this issue)?

Originally Posted by RonKunda Since installing Windows 10 my lap top battery drains very fast and sometimes goes from 30/40 % to shut down in minutes go to settings and check under system > battery > apps or programs that can run in background and disable those not needed
also check under task manager what is enabled at startup and disable unnecessary programs
check which apps are syncing always and disable those not needed
reduce syncing times such that the app checks fewer times
switch off wifi/cellular when not needed
check your brightness levels, are they more than enough?
check battery setting, is it high performance or normal or battery saver
Also, allow apps to update while on charge as there could be many apps still updating after doing the windows 10 upgrade

So I had not extreme battery issues but enough for me to notice. I've read alot about how restore an old back up might not help battery life. If you have the time. Factory reset and do a fresh start without restoring a back up. It's a time killer but I've already notice my stand by time improving.

The battery of my Lumia 830 is draining fast. Normaly i'm pretty much a high demanding user (I use my phone all day), but to test the battery I used my phone 'normal'. The battery still drains fast as hell, unplugged at 0800 and the phone shut down at 19.00, less then 11 hours.
Useful to know:
W10m, .107 build. Did a hardreset a week ago (battery drain was the same before the hardreset), NFC off, location off, brightness set on auto, BT off, 4G with almost full bars, Wifi on. Nog many background apps, batterysaver kicks in at 15%. Glance screen turned off (in the hope for better batterylife).

Answer:Lumia 830 battery draining really fast

Keep in mind that you're running insider software. This is going to be a bit more battery intensive as it's a preview, and it's also reporting diagnostics to the developers.
I'd say try some of the battery saving tips from the below two sources. If battery issues are really bad, i'd recommend a hard reset. If a hard reset doesn't help, then maybe the insider preview isn't for you with your phone usage.17 tips to extend battery life on Windows Phone 8 | Windows CentralBattery saving tips - Windows Help

Hi,
I just bought my Lumia 530 DS two days ago, and I am happy to be back to Windows Phone. But i am not satisfied with the battery life. When the phone is fully charged, it says "estimated battery life is 22hrs 45mins", and in standby mode (no wifi, 3g, gps turned on!) it spends 5% of battery. It is my first time to use two sim-card phone, but i think it shouldnt drain battery so fast... What do u think about this?

Answer:Lumia 530 Dual SIM - Why is my battery draining so fast?

New phones take a bit of time to get their battery properly calibrated and thus have pretty bad battery life for the first few cycles.
Just wait till u do some 4-5 charge discharge cycles and it will increase.

I don't know why but now a days my Lumia 520 restarts automatically and it drops percentage of battery to very low level. Sometimes i also noticed that power button stuck sometimes. Does the restart problem occurs due to battery related problems or what? Does anyone else facing the same problem?

Answer:Why is my Lumia 520 restarting automatically and draining it battery fast?

Looks like a hardware button-related problem, specifically the power button being stuck at times. Notice anything else that is unusual with the power button? Does the power button spring back normally? Do you feel the "resistance" of the button when pressing it, or does it just get pressed almost with no effort?

I have an Ideapad 6-month old Y460p with a 6 cell battery. I have it set to only charge to 80% to extend the battery life. However, when I run on battery power, it starts out saying I have 3+ hours left, then in less than 40 minutes tells me I have 6% battery power left and have to plug in. Strangely, when I do plug in, it claims to be back to 80% in 18 or so minutes! Is my battery faulty?

Answer:Y460p battery draining too fast, also charging too fast?

Hi CBFord, please remove the battery and reinsert it again to make sure it's connected firmly.Charge the battery to full 100% then use your Y460p on battery power until only 10 to 15% power is left,shut it down then start up again and immediately press F2 key and keep pressed until it enters first BIOS screen.Let it sit like that until the battery is empty and Y460p shuts off by itself.This procedure will create a battery-empty reference.Next plug the charger in and let it charge for a couple of hours, boot up and  make sure it's fully 100% charged.Then run the laptop again on battery power only and hopefully you will get 2 to 3 hours of use until the low batt warning pops up. please also read battery life review of similar Y560p model laptop...http://www.notebookcheck.net/Review-Lenovo-IdeaPad-Y560p-M61G3GE-Notebook.55605.0.html please post outcome...

to begin with manually remove your battery to check for any bumps or irregularities, no change in battery percentage or in a condition where the battery do not charge it is likely that the battery has run out of life and in such cases you will have to buy a new battery.

i know the first time 10 got a preview it cratered my already bad battery life. I'd chalk it up to it not being as efficient as it could be and perhaps not perfect driver workings.
Although 30 minutes sounds a bit too dramatic, maybe something is eating up resources in task manager?

Battery drains in about 2 hours using it to get and send email.

Answer:Why is my battery draining so fast?

Doesn't sound good. However you've not said what device it is...
Are you using the original charger? Sometimes using third-party chargers don't charge the battery properly.
Maybe try a Soft Reset, or failing that a full Hard Reset.
But without knowing more about the device, I can only be very general...

In the last few months I have noticed my battery life on my XPS 13 2016 version went from being able to handle surfing and browsing the net and reading my school books for 8 or so hours. To not making it more then 4 or 5 hours. Only thing I have changed is allowing windows updates to happen.
I have gone through all the advanced battery options that look relevant. Limiting the processing threshold as well as lowing the graphic processing power to low and it didn't help.
Anyone else having this issue?

We have noticed that the battery on our 7370's drains quite quickly. have had reports of under 2 hours. We have a balanced power plan enabled.   Now, I know it depends on what you are running, but the average report is around 3.5 to 4 hours.  Starting to tweak some of the settings, but was looking  to see if anyone else has experienced it.

Installed any new apps lately? May be an app with a bug running wild in the background. You should check under privacy settings the apps allowed to run in background and disable the ones you dont need to run. Background apps means they run periodically even though you closed them in the app switcher.

Dear Customer Service, My laptop HP PAvilion - 14-al106TX was bought on two month ago.Recently I found my laptop battery Draining Fast which seems like unreasonable, Once laptop fully changed when I unplug the charger after 6 to 8 hour my battery capacity from 100% drop to 88% while it was off during that moment. That was the reason I suspect my battery may have problems, therefore could you please help to advice whether it is a defect battery? Looking forward to your favorable reply soon.Thank you. ZL1

I just bought this netbook from a friend and I've noticed the battery drains within an hour after use from full charge.
 
The netbook is an Acer Aspire one
 
Windows 7 ultimate.

Answer:Netbook Battery Draining Fast

 Batteries lose their ability to hold a charge over time.  My laptop is 2.5 years old, and I just started getting a notice that it now only has 40% of its original ability to hold a charge.  Windows 7 has the ability to do this I learned.  I just timed it last night, and after an hour even it was down to something like 23%.  If your netbook's over 2 years old, what you're seeing is par for the course.  I checked prices for mine and they vary all over the place with Amazon having them as low as $20, Micro Center having them for around $50, and Toshiba (my laptop's brand) for $75.  I'm sure the Toshiba ones are good, but I'm sure giving serious consideration to one of those Amazon ones that're so much cheaper.  I'm still researching this one.
 
Good luck.

Answer:battery draining extremely fast ...

Hi ankit21,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
Can you try Manually resetting  the battery out.
    Boot the System into BIOS by hitting F2 when you power ON the computer.
    Now stay in BIOS and let the computer run with Only the Battery in that mode.
    Let the computer turn OFF By itself due to battery power loss.
    Now Let the computer OFF and charge the computer with the AC adapter.
    Power ON the computer and Let it charge to a 100% then Observe if that resolves the Issue.
 
Hope this helps
Cheers!

I found something strange happening. After I updated to win 10 phone sometimes the battery holds two day with my normal usage and sometimes the phone starts draining uncontrolably and I have to restart it to start acting normal. Recently I noticed that the process starts after I change something in the contact information. The battery information is that the most battery-using apps are "people" and "call" with above 20% usage each. I think this is too much. Do you think it has something to do with system starts infinite cycles or something?

are you sure that its 1% per 15 min? thats equivalent to 25 hours of screen-on time. not even my phone with 4000 mah batery can pull that one.lol. if you meant 10% then that is equal to 2.5 hrs of SoT which is really poor.

Meaning your live tiles aren't live? I'll assume you've restarted the phone (if not, cue to do so).
Is there anything of note in the Battery Save app? i.e. some app with tons of background usage or something?
Look at the store -> downloads and then swipe over to history and see what has been updated since you noticed this. Maybe uninstall anything that updated after you noticed this.

But with a fully charged battery, i can close the lid at night triggering sleep mode, and wake up to an almost dead battery. Why is this happening? It's really dissapointing and I'm going to return it if I can't find a fix. I'm on the latest BIOS with all current updates. I am not using Hibernate mode. Closing the lid shoud not cause battery to continue to drain at normal usage rates. I'm hoping it's the WINDOWS 8 software but I've tried all the settings I can find.

Answer:Yoga 2 Pro Draining Battery Fast in Sleep Mode

Probably because your laptop isn't even going to sleep. Check the power light to see if it's solid or blinking. If it stays solid your laptop isn't sleeping. The sleep function on Yogas basically don't work at all.

I was hoping that the new updates Lumia cyan / windows 8.1 would solve this problem. Meh... Been using since the beginning of this year and every time I start an app ( messaging to gaming , any app ) it gets super hot right above the camera lens. I've watch a video on youtube where they disassemble the 920 and whats right on top the camera looks like a core processor ? Correct me if I'm wrong. If thats the processor chip does that mean the heat issue will never be solved ? There are a lot of posts about this over heating issues and Microsoft never seems to have a solution for this instead they treat us like little dummies. They'll ask us to check battery saver , close background app, close wifi ,soft reset etc. etc. ( yeah like I'm that stupid to not notice ). Up till date there have been NO solutions for this like yea NONE , Zero.
I consider myself as a "small user".Sometimes , I dont use my phone at all. The longest standby mode I can achieve which lasted 7 days with 16 hours and 45 minutes battery life remaining ( i got these stats from the battery app ).However when I launch an app comes a different story. The battery goes from 100% to 70% in less than 15 minutes! Theres that one time I had to charge my phone 3 times a day for playing games on it (not even more than 2 hour of gameplay ). Even updating new software features such as Music+ drains 5% battery , seriously wtf ?

Answer:Lumia 920 gets really hot and battery draining.

There's no way that's a problem either, if you use your phone by playing a heavy-processing app, then the battery is going to die quickly. Kind of like if you go run for 30 minutes, and you'll be a bit tired too. Go run for 2 hours straight and, well, good luck! :D
As for the overheating, again, go run and you'll over heat too, us humans just sweat to keep our core temperatures down while cell phones don't have that capability.
Yes, welcome to the world of 2014, battery life is a big concern to every OEM, not just Microsoft, but perfecting it is never going to happen because there's always something smaller and more efficient coming. However, as it stands today, batteries haven't had a large breakthrough in a long while, and that's what we're waiting for.
Sorry sir, there's no fix, as there's nothing wrong.

I recently bought a Red Lumia 1520 a couple of weeks ago. Since then I have experienced a high draining rate of my battery. In battery saver it says the battery life is around 15 hours even at 100%. I checked with my friends Lumia 1520 and his one says around 1 day and 10 hours even at around 80%. I have tried soft resets and hard resets. Yet the problem is still there. I use WhatsApp, facebook, instagram(6tag), snapchat(6snap) and IE on a daily basis. Sometimes I play games like FIFA 15 and ASPHALT 8. Is there anything I could do to fix this issue? Sometimes the phone gets heated on the back just above the camera. One of the main reasons I bought this phone is because of its battery life and I love this phone. Is this a software issue? Or a hardware defect? By any chance do I have to replace the batter?( can I even do that?). Your help will be much appreciated.:)

Answer:Why is my battery draining quickly on my Lumia 1520?

I bought a brand new Nokia Icon back in May with my contract upgrade. It would easily last all day even with heavy use - I would unplug it at 7 am and not return home until 9 or 10pm, would stream movies on it at the gym, browse various websites, etc., and still have plenty of battery life when I got home. I had email set to as-items-arrive, had brightness on auto, kept Wi-Fi and location on, etc., and I would still easily get 20-30 hours of battery life out of it.
I dropped it, it shattered, and I bought a used one off of Blinq. This phone is in very good condition - fewer scuffs and scratches than my old one, even - and it can't be more than 3 months older than my original Icon, as they have only been available since February. The battery on this Icon, however, even at full, fresh off of the charger, is only 10 hours according to battery saver. And if I do anything with it, it is much, MUCH less. Why is the battery on this phone draining so quickly and is there anything I can do about it? Why does it have so much less life even at full battery? Is getting the battery replaced a possibility and is it a cost-effective option? Please help, I want full functionality out of this phone, and as it stands I have to be tethered to an outlet if I want to do anything with it.

Answer:Why is my Lumia Icon Battery Draining at twice the normal rate?
