Dear all forum user,
I have upgrade my windows from Windows 8.1 64bit to Windows 10 64bit, but there is problem with my notebook battery life, in Windows 8.1 my notebook battery life is about 4 to 5 hours in standard use, but in Windows 10 only 3 hours. I have already installed all software driver from HP. Thanks for your reply.

Windows 10 has added functionality that may need more juice out of your pc battery.
You can increase your battery power by reducing the display brightness and perhaps turning off wifi (if not used)
I believe 3 hours is good enough for any notebook.
battery life also depletes after a certain period of time.

you can check your battery status thru HP Support Assistant, it should be preinstalled on your PC. Also check your drivers, and BIOS, if there are new version, they can optimise the batery life.

2. Expand the Batteries category.
3. Under the Batteries category, right-click the Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery listing, and select Uninstall .

4. On the Device Manager taskbar, click Scan for hardware changes .
