    Hello Razer Crew!

    Help!! Should I downgrade my Windows version?
    I have read that this Windows 10 version 1803 may be the culprit, but I don't know..

    I was just wondering if anyone out there had a similar issue where their Blade 15 lasted less than 3 hours on battery mode.
    My laptop is almost a month old now. My thermals are okay.
    I am on Night Mode. My Power Setting is on Balanced Mode. I am also on Battery Saver Mode.
    I use this mostly for productivity with some gaming (Candy Crush every other day and Second Life just last month).

    Looking forward to hearing from anyone regarding this! Thanks!

    I suggest that you proceed with a system restore now. This way you can fully ascertain if it's no longer a software issue but rather a hardware one.

    Important Note:
    • All data, games, and applications will be removed in this process. Please back up all required data to an external drive.
    • Windows updates, Synapse updates, and software installation will be required once your Blade has been recovered.
    • If your Blade was upgraded to a different OS other than the one it shipped with (i.e. Windows 8 to Windows 10), the recovery partition will recover it to the original OS.
    • The process may take some time to complete and require several updates and restarts of the system.
    Here are the steps for System Recovery:
    1. Turn off the Blade and connect the Blade to a reliable power source.
    2. Press the power button on the Blade and immediately begin to rapidly press the F9 function key at a rate of 1.5 times per second.
    3. If you missed the moment where you can access System Recovery and the system boots into the Windows Operating System, Restart your computer and rapidly press the F9 function key again.
    4. Once you have successfully logged into the recovery partition, you will be prompted with 2 options
    5. Select “Start Recovery” and the system will proceed with the recovery process
    6. While the recovery process is in progress, do not under any circumstance turn the Blade off or unplug the Blade from its power source.
    7. Once the recovery process is completed, the Blade should shut down on its own.

    You good sir, are my Razer hero.
    This totally worked! I've never been more happy to see "8 hours 20 mins"!

    Thanks so much!!
