Odd battery issue

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
On one of my laptops, both windows and the battery indicator say that the battery is completely dead (0%), but the laptop still runs for about 2-3 hours. I assume the gauge system on the battery is just busted and doesn't report the correct charge level. I have tried a couple of full drains and recharges to no avail. This happened out of the blue. Maybe there's some standalone battery meter software? Any tips? Thanks.

Well, same thing happens to my laptop when I install Win7 on it. It really starts acting oddly (media buttons go crazy, DVD drive opens all of sudden, etc). That's why I have WinXP installed on it. But it may be a different scenario in your case.
