Hey,

i bought a used GS65 but the battery only charges up to 80%. I tried clean installed the Dragon Center v2.6 but it seems that the battery manager isn't supported by this model, at least i can't see any settings for it. So i tried an ec reset but that didn't help either. i can't do a battery calibration either cause it needs to be fully charged for that and it stops charging at 80% telling me to wait 316 minutes for it to be fully charged but doesn't do anything fro their on. Do you guys have any suggestion what else i could try?

thanks in advance!

Have you ever switch the charging mode to " Balanced "?
The Battery charging starts when the battery capacity is below 70%, and stops when the battery capacity is charged at 80%.

If this model doesn't support the Battery Master, then the battery capacity shouldn't be stopped at 80% but 9x%, that's the default settings for MSI notebook.
In this case the charging of the battery seems to be abnormal.

Check the battery status and see if the battery wears out.

no battery master setup - windows default
90./. - 100./. cycle "passive" battery protection
89./. starts recharging "up to 100./."

//edit2

additional "RESET" for broken drivers updates " drivers from any SW for drivers update "
remove all battery drivers + reboot - this method install original "windows drivers"

however, charging is mainly controlled on the MSI or Notebook - by the EC chip
