How to solve this problem ? Simple, just install Vista Basic as i did and after that reinstall on Windows 7 64 bit.
Problem solved.
You think it is solved? You think that because Windows Vista does not show you this message? Sorry to burst your bubble but Windows Vista doesn't show this message because it was a new feature in Windows 7. If the hardware says the battery is coming to the end of its life, and Windows 7 only repeats this information. How is that a bug? If the battery is not failing like Windows 7 says, then there is a problem with the hardware, the HARDWARE.

It shows Design Capacity and Last Full Charge which gives you an idea of how worn the battery is. Also check the errors section for anything about the battery.

Mine shows Design Capacity 63360 (which is 14.4v * 4400 mAH for my battery)
Last Full Charge is 59450
i tried this,. and says:
Battery:Last Full Charge (%)
The battery stored less than 40% of the Designed Capacity the last time the battery was fully charged.
Battery ID MSI Corp. MS-1221 Design Capacity 47520 Last Full Charge 17831 Last Full Charge (%) 37

i have msi laptop, and just recently i got this similar problem like everyone here. i had read on a forum outside to try system restore, i tried but it's not successful,it says i should disable my antivirus. i haven't tried again.
purchasing a brand new battery ain't that easy coz it ain't cheap..

Software cannot fix hardware problems. Your battery is at the end of its life. Replacing it is the only solution you have. There is not much else that can be done.

There are quite a few comments/suggestions, that if you receive this message, then your battery is, as it says, about to give up.
In this thread, there are several ways suggested (I was one) as to how to get the OS to say fully charged. In most cases, this is temporary, although some seem to have been succesful.
As I understand, even now still in the rumour stage, it occurs on just a few computer motherboards with a particularr Intel chip? (Acer 700 series seems to be one such).
But. One thing of which I can assure most users. It is not, in the initial stages, a battery problem!
I was lucky enough to have access to batteries, when this problem occurred. All, of three, new batteries, gave the same message after a short useage.
I believe that the original (cheaper!) batteries, can, with undercharging, eventually change their "memory" and adopt a new maximum figure, beteen 80 to 90%. This does mean a spoiled battery in the long run, when the situation become irreversible.. In the same context, I have read that more modern Nicads do not have this memory problem.
Most computers exhibiting this symptom are probably, by now, out of guarantee unfortunately.
The only way to cope with the problem, if you have gone to the extent of purchasing a new battery, is, as with all rechageables, to, from time to time, allow the laptop to discharge the battery to varying levels - even completely if you are able (Not too easy with a laptop, it always has a fairly high residue.)
Several methods of achieving this are in this thread.

Replace your battery or talk to the original manufacture of your computer. The battery says it is dieing so there is only one logical solution, replace the battery. Why is that so hard to understand?

These sort of posts annoy me as it encourages people to buy new batteries when they either don't need to or if they do, the battery has been damaged by some other medium - and from the looks of this thread it appears to be Windows 7. Hence they should look at the root cause before buying an expensive battery only to have the problem return.

I have just forked out on a brand new battery as Windows 7 advised me to do and it hasn't made any difference.

Anything below 100% and the message comes up (red cross through battery and "consider replacing you battery" message) it's then about 30 minutes before it's dead, or Windows 7 thinks it's dead and it goes into standby.

There is lots of conflicting advice above. Is there a definitive solution? Is it possible to 'reset' the battery? I am not able to tell the PC to 'take no action' when it reaches critical level to test how long the battery really has left, the only options are 'shut down' 'sleep' or 'hibernate'....

Any help appreciated. It's pretty annoying having to use my laptop plugged in all the time.

Thanks

Then there is something wrong with your HARDWARE. Why is this so hard to understand? Windows 7 is only telling you what the HARDWARE tells it! The battery itself is a self contained system. Windows itself cannot tamper with the battery's inner workings.

You need to contact the manufacture of your computer. Only they can fix your HARDWARE problem.
