#19. How To Repair Your Laptop's Battery Life???

By Friday, April 11, 2014 No comments
Do you know that you might accidently be reducing your Laptop's Battery Life day by day????

If the answer of the above question is
No then read the following info. According to Microsoft, if a Li-ion battery can not hold charge more than 40% it will display the following notification "Consider Replacing Your Battery. There is a Problem with your Battery" on Notification panel.


<img alt="Repair Consider Replacing Your Battery Error"/>


Now the reasons for this damage are:


1. Disturbed Calibration of  Battery due to any reason.
2. Your Battery is seriously unhealthy and needs to be replaced immediately.

Well there is one big Reason you never could have noticed. That is overcharging of battery and improper utilisation of the same. 


Surprised!!!! Yes, this is true each time you charge your Li-ion battery to the full, it holds a charge afterwards. If this charge holding capacity reduces below 40%  you will be getting notifications from Windows.....


What to Do Now????


Well, there is not a guarantee that every Li-ion battery can be revived by this method but there are chances. All you get to do is follow the simple steps below:


1. Open Command Prompt in your Laptop. Run cmd.exe as Administator.

2. Enter the following command

"
powercfg setdcvalueindex SCHEME_CURRENT SUB_BATTERY BATACTIONCRIT 0".

3. The command will execute. Now close cmd.exe and go to Power Options in Control Panel and look for change advanced settings in current activated scheme.

4. In this tab opened, click on Change settings that are currently unavailable.
5.Scroll down to Battery option and click on it. Now click on Critical Battery Action. 

It will now show that Critical Battery Action is set to "Do Nothing" both at Plugged In and On Battery. 
Now this is just the principle. The method for repairing the damage is to charge the battery upto 100% and let it discharge to 0% as well. It means you have to use your charged battery continuously until the Laptop switches off itself.

This will take time but you will see that after following the charging-discharging routine for frequent times, your battery life is Improved and finally the red cross from your battery will disappear.

#17. Would Nokia Rewrite Success By Going Android??? - Pro's N Con's

By Tuesday, March 18, 2014 No comments
It's been a very long wait, but yeah, Nokia finally did it by going Android. Since the launch of Nokia X series android based smartphones in India, the sales figures have been good so far for Nokia.


<img alt="Nokia X with Android Support"/>


While everyone is so obsessed with these new Nokia X series smartphones, let's see the big picture: Would Nokia be able to rewrite success by going Android as it did with Lumia ???

Frankly speaking, with Nokia X series, I don't think that Nokia will be able to pull off the Android - Smartphone market, but hey I' m not the only judge here. It's a fact that people are seriously committed to Nokia, which infact was the biggest reason of Nokia Lumia smartphones to recieve so much fame. After that big alliance with Microsoft last year, Nokia has made another huge transformation by going Android. 

Nokia X, the first ever Nokia phone to support Android has been launched and the reviews are mixed. For some it's a great smartphone in a reasonable price and the brand value of Nokia. For others, Fastlane Interface is a bit confusing and lacks the originality of Google's Android OS. 

Here's a quick review of what Nokia X has to offer:

Pro's:

1. Supports Android OS v4.1.2 (JB) over FastLane interface.
2. Dual SIM support along with 3G and Wi-Fi.
3. Dual-Core Snapdragon Qualcomm processor clocked at 1Ghz.
4. Decent 4.0 inch display and good battery life for a reasonable price.

Con's:

1. Not so good specs at this current era of smartphones.
2. No support for the Google package such as GMail, GMaps, etc.
3. Much better android smartphones present in market than Nokia X for the same price.
