My laptop seems to be completely out of charge, and the only way to use it is to plug it in. If it becomes unplugged, then it immediately shuts off. I am running Windows 8 Pro on a Samsung Series 9 Notebook (P900X3B). It is not a fresh installation of Windows, it was updated from Windows 7.

The battery indicator in Windows 8 states that the battery is at full charge, but it really isn't. I can't remove the battery because it is built into the laptop. Is there any way to fix this?

 

Thanks, HB

Hi -

 

Samsung does make some sacrifices in order to keep the Series 9 so thin and light. The battery, memory, and solid state disk are not user replaceable.

They’re sealed up inside the laptop case, and while you might be able to remove some components and replace them by performing minor surgery on the notebook, you’ll probably void your warranty in the process.

 

About all I can find .........................

 

See Series 8 >> Samsung ATIV Book 8 Review and scroll down to Battery life -

Is this yours ?? Or do you mean the Series 9 ??

My laptop is more like this: http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Series-NP900X3B-A01US-13-3-Inch-Laptop/dp/B006KYY15A

Sorry, I meant Series 9. My bad.

EDIT: It seems to be working now, charging at 3%. I will see how it goes.

EDIT 2: Works normally now. Thanks for your support!
