Laptop battery software Introduction

In add-on to laptop computer configuration, there can not be ignored is a battery. Notebook computer originally as easy to carry, the Battery for users is very important, if the laptop battery power, what is the meaning of convenience?! Therefore, when choosing books.

 

Assign the Lenovo IdeaPad Y550 battery is one of the items will be measured!

 

However, how the battery test it? Test battery many software, such as Battery Mark, Battery Eater, MobileMark2002 so. General

 

Use more battery test software Battery Mark, following a brief introduction on Battery Mark’s use and it should be noted

 

First, look at Battery Mark works correctly. Barrage fire cross off actually use the built-in Graphics engine,

 

Processor engine, Disk engine, Think engine, 4 engines will simulate the actual operation to consume battery power. Through the 4

 

One engine to run a continuous loop between the simulated user environment, to a comprehensive test battery of specific circumstances. Software every 2 to 3 minutes on

 

Test data will be automatically saved to the specified directory. When the Lenovo IdeaPad Y550 battery runs out completely to automatically shut down the last save before the end

 

The end result will be as the test results.

 

Let us look at how to operate the set.

 

Must be before the test laptop battery fully charged, and should the system shut down a number of related management systems.

 

First turn off the screen saver

 

Then click on the bottom right corner, “Power” button to enter the Lenovo IdeaPad Y550 battery power management, the power to use the program in accordance with the image shown to change

 

Switch to the “warning” page will be “insufficient battery alarm” and “a serious shortage of battery alarm” two check mark are removed.

 

Switch to the “sleep” page, see “start sleep” before it is checked (most laptops now are able to activate the system off

 

Sleep function), if any, would remove the hook. Then click “OK”, this power management is turned off.

 

As the Battery Mark’s Graphics engine in need of some full-screen graphics, and some sub-standard resolution screen resolution

 

1024X768 before you will be forced to adjust to 1024X768, 1024X768 and above if you do not have a resolution. In addition, as

 

Battery Mark show in the middle between full screen and the constant switching will have adverse effects on the taskbar, the taskbar is best overall in the most

 

Remove the previous option.

 

All those affairs are windowpanes power management program that comes with the settings, for some larger companies will have their own dedicated

 

Power management procedures, real basic, like, just follow the principles above set on it. (Of course, the above settings only

 

For the media for the evaluation, as individuals in the test, could use the company itself with a dedicated management procedures.

 

Have the battery time should be slightly longer)

 

After a series of set top after a run Battery Mark

 

(Start ? Programs ? Ziff Davis Media BenchMarks ? Ziff Davis Media Battery Mark 4.0.1

 

First of all we see is the License screen. At this point the page “Proceed” to not click on the gray, we only need to right

 

Rolled at the bottom of the scroll bar, “Proceed” button will automatically become available.

 

Then the software will be prompted to fill in the name with the organization, where we can easily fill in, do not care.

 

After the confirmation page, click “OK” on it.

 

After “hardships”, the last to see the “true colors.” Had just spent a long time ago, are still only a small

 

Only the beginning. Here are a few options:

 

1.Run (Start test)

 

2.Save results (save the test results)

 

3.Compare results (results of comparison)

 

4.Help (Help)

 

Click Run, software, hardware platform will be tested to see if it meets the requirements; if you do not comply will not be able to continue running

 

Battery Mark. (Black check mark indicates that the machine meets the test of minimum requirements; yellow X said that although the machine did not meet the minimum

 

Requirements, but also can finish the entire test; the red X is the machine can not finish the entire test. )

 

Click “Next” will show Battery Mark the so-called minimum configuration requirements.

 

Click “Next” again there is a whole page in English, where, Battery Mark will once again stressed that the restructuring resolution

 

And the task bar hidden problems. The bottom is a test also need to install any font requirements, generally No missing fonts

 

Another interface, at the top indicates we do not care. In order to avoid the impact of the testing process by other programs, Battery Mark will automatically

 

Probe is running, tied up, if the yellow X, will not impact.

 

Then this page has suggested that if the software running on Windows Me system, the first will be ME “System Restore” turned off,

 

Otherwise affect the test.

 

This time Zhongyu Ao explored, and feel than the march was also difficult at this time point “complete” can then be tested (if appeared in front of the red

 

Of X, then the Finish button will be gray. ).

 

Fainted, but also feelings of deception by the software. This page is a test laptop battery Mark and machines are compatible with power management procedures,

 

Continue starting point detection. (Due to old models of power management compatibility, Battery Mark on the specific power management procedures and

 

Capacitive little worse)

 

If the point of no big change, there Retry after 60 seconds with the Cancel option, then we should be bold by

 

Cancel, otherwise fall into the cycle of death.

 

A warning will pop up to remind laptop battery Mark will be the case without power management operation, according to F3 to continue, press Esc exit.

 

Press F3 to enter test selection window, where we can choose Conditioning Run and Life Test of two test modes.

 

Conditioning Run full load mode, it calls the three engines: Graphics engine, Processor engine, Disk engine,

 

Simulation of a large workload in the state of laptop time. Compared with Conditioning Run mode, Life Test of a Multi-Mode

 

Think engine engine, mainly in the practical application of simulation among the laptop case. Under normal circumstances, Life Test mode than

 

ConditioningRun model a long time 30% to 40%.

 

Choose to conduct the test program, press F3, a warning will appear (if there is no power management in the case of testing). At this point the

 

Disconnect the power Dell xps m1730 battery adapter, and then press F3 to officially begun.

 

Accidentally choose the wrong test items, need to quit, then press F3, then press F3 again to confirm exit. Re-select the correct test items to test

 

As for testing time, depending on the specific model may be. Measured before, as the author of Sony TX, C mode, running a total of more than 4 hours,

 

The running time of L mode, sleep a night; wake up the next morning, no finish, a full 7 hours. However, under normal circumstances, even if the power

 

Consumption and then a large (or small laptop battery capacity), have a general to an hour, so we can go to a cup of coffee, look set drinking and card series,

 

Read again, it is estimated almost nine.

 

Note:

 

1. In Life Test test, usually adjust the screen brightness to half (some models use the Dell xps m1730 battery when the screen brightness

 

Automatically reduced, this need not go to their adjustment), if the notebook comes with special software that can be transferred to the best battery performance mode. The Conditioning Run mode, then the best screen brightness set to maximum, special software is set to best performance mode.

 

1.Battery Mark has certain requirements on memory, if the relatively low memory crash situation may occur, the system built at least 64MB flash in98

 

Memory above, Win2k system more than 128MB, WinXP 256MB or more, to avoid crash to happen.

 

2. Note that the settings should be modified, such as the power scheme, warning, status bar, screen saver, sleep, have to double check, if

 

If omitted, would affect the accuracy of test results.

 

3. Sometimes occur when running on laptop battery Mark error, the user need not worry as long as the re-start just once, you can then pre-

 

Interrupt the test area to continue.

 

Four. Because the number of Li-ion laptop battery charging and discharging is limited, occasionally running it will not have much impact on Dell xps m1730 battery life, but if too frequent

 

Using Battery Mark test, then, will affect battery life.
