how can i check the health of my battery?

  • Hello! can anybody let me the ways i can check the health of my notebooks battery?
  • What information are you looking for?

    Check the runtime and the status of the LEDs on the battery, if there are any - that's about all you can do.
  • I havnt checked on my dell, but on my wifes' HP I can go into the bios setup and there is an option in there that will test the battery.

    It will depend on the model and BIOS version.  Your 6000 needs BIOS A09 to gain Battery Health support.  See my reply to your other post on this subject.

    You can also check Battery Health using the latest Dell QuickSet version (if Battery Health is supported in the BIOS).
