    Unhappy G G531GV Very bad battery life

    Hello.

    I got a g531gv intel i7-9750h rtx 2060 16 gb ram which seems to be a great laptop but it's battery barely lasts 1h and 30 minutes while literally doing nothing with it.

    What I did to make it better:

    -turn off aura keyboard lighting
    -night mode is always on
    -max brightness is 50%
    -battery saver on
    -set intel hd as default so rtx is sleeping unless playing a game
    -intel hd graphics set to maximum battery life with refresh rate set to 48hz
    -set maximum processor state to 20% while on battery


    All of these settings proved to be useless because i got a max of 1h and 40 minutes and a completely lost day tweaking.

    The thing is that even if these settings would manage to get me a decent battery life, let's say something like 3 hours of browsing the web and youtube videos, how comes that all these reviewers get like 5 hours of battery life while not gaming and a hour and half or something while gaming? And I suppose they don't lose their time with all the tweaking like I did and just use the laptop with straight out of the box settings?

    I don't even want to start about undervolting the cpu, which at last made me reinstall windows.

    What do you guys think I should do about this?

    Return the laptop to the reseller for a full refund.

    I can't get a refund and also I really like the laptop.

    Can't it be just my unit that has a battery problem? Should I try to send it to my reseller for a replacement? I mean i know it has some demanding components but I saw reviews and other people are getting better battery life.

    You most likely have a bad motherboard. Replacing the battery wouldn't fix your problem. Get your reseller and/or ASUS involved with repairing or replacing the laptop.

    Make sure you have the latest BIOS. Sometimes a bad BIOS version might cause things to stay in a high power state.

    Although it's a old topic, I will post this reply for anyone facing the same issue.

    I pretty much fixed the problem, and the solution was reinstalling windows.

    I had a ****ty windows 10 enterprise edition and now with windows 10 pro all my problems seems to have vanished. The battery now drains 25% an hour and that is enough for me.

    At first you might say that you just have to grab a windows copy and you're fine, but believe me, the Windows you use is pretty damn important.

    Good luck and thank you guys for your answers!
