Thread: how to boot in DOS mode ?

    Default how to boot in DOS mode ?

    Hi,

    I just received a rebuilt battery from battery refill.com. They want me to run a procedure to drain and charge the battery. The problem is I can't follow the drain part of it. They want me to hit the f8 key when restarting the machine. I guess this disables the power management and the machine will use every bit of electrictiy before shutting off. Does anyone know how to hit the f8 key to go into DOS mode ?

    thanks,

    ps, this is the vj11f gl-r litepad

    I was told to change my procedure (no f8 ) so don't waste your time replying or reading unless you are interested in the outcome with customer support.

    Dear customer,

    Just charge up your battery completely, and discharge it. Do this at least 5 times, and the capacity charge should go higher each time you recallibrate (discharge and charge) your battery. We recommend 2%, but 3% is fine. Sometimes battery capacity will only go up to 85% depending on your circuit. So use the battery and see how long it will last for. If you have any more problems or questions, please call or email us. Thank you and have a great day!
