my g'f bought a li3910 and the screen started faulting.
normally when the screen moves on its hinge.
it wasn't a gfx or software fault.
I fixed the problem by isolating the issue to the inverter located underneath the LCD in the screen.
however, in fairness, sellotape isn't a long term solution and the problem occurs still but very rarely.
Does anyone have a part number for this item. the problem started inside the warranty but I didn't realise that it was a hardware fault until some time later.
there are two inverters on this websitehttp://www.ipc-computer.eu/it-pi-n-Disp ... 13703.htmlhttp://www.ipc-computer.eu/it-pi-n-Disp ... 48263.html
does anyone with some expertise know which one it might be.
for the original poster my advice would be to check out this part and see if a loose connection is causing the issue.
however, this wouldn't affect the battery power. if it's a youtube/video/issue I would look at the gfx card. see if underclocking it (if possible) helps or replace the drivers.
also a good clean of the unit it handy if there is a heat build up.
if the battery is consistently poor, regardless of performance or even windows loading (how long does the battery last when you boot into the BIOS without going into windows?) then that could be completely unrelated to the graphics issue.
batteries are considered consumable products and they do wear out and lose the ability to retain power after a while.
