I recently did a clean install of Windows 7 with help from advice I got here. Thanks again.
Now, I seem to be having battery issues. I changed my settings to where I thought I had them before (made a power plan, chose lowest screen brightness for unplugged). But when I unplug the power cord, the screen goes to dim as expected, but battery goes immediately to 91% and the fan goes to HIGH. When I plug it back in, the fans gets loud again, and it is immediately back to 100% charge.
It never used to do this. It used to simply dim when unplugged, begin at 100% and drop slowly, VERY slowly. The battery life before the clean install was quite good, but now seems to be less.
Is there some setting I am missing that was in effect when I set up a power plan last time?
