Well, if you're running your laptop with the battery in AND the plug, that could've caused some issues or if you don't use the battery enough it loses its ability to keep a charge over time. Batteries wear out faster in not completely charged or drained as well if they are used in such a state. There might've also been an issue with it from the start. If the laptop is under warranty, replace the battery.

Use battery Pro to keep an eye on the battery drains.

no my laptop is not under warranty,now i can't replace it
i think my battery seems completely ok.maybe there is virus in my laptop or some driver issue,not sure
i'm also use laptop when on battery,only plugged in when it is on low level
i installed intel chipset drivers recently,maybe that is the issue,i don't think so >>

If you get this error on your laptop it means one of two things

1. Your battery is dying, and it needs to be replaced
2. Windows 7 cannot properly detect how much power is in the battery

To determine what's wrong,
click start
In the box that says "search programs and files", Type in CMD
You should see a "cmd.exe" show up in the top of the start menu
Right click the cmd icon, run as administrator
type in powercfg -energy
This will test your battery, and produce a report in C:\Windows\System32\energy-report.html
You can open this file in a regular browser or Word
If it is able to read the battery, and produce a report, look at the line that says "design capacity" and "last full charge"
This will show how much the battery should hold, and how much it's actually holding
If you run the test over a few days or weeks, and this number is steadily decreasing over time, it means your battery is dying, and you need a new one eventually
You can always untick the "warn me if my battery needs replacing" if you just want to get rid of the annoying message

If it is unable to read the battery and produce a report, then windows is not communicating with the battery.
This is a BIOS issue, and it means that Windows 7 just isn't going to read your battery properly.
You can try updating your BIOS, but it probably won't work.
Long story short, there's nothing you can do about the warning.
in your cmd box, run powercfg -setdcvalueindex SCHEME_CURRENT SUB_BATTERY BATACTIONCRIT 0
This will just let windows run until the battery hits 0, regardless of how much power it "thinks" it has

Sorry for the mess up bro. First of, It's not "My" battery pro. I did not write the codes for that.

Anyways, as per the report. The results are

Design Capacity 57200
Last Full Charge 39292

Run the diagnostic again and check, if the numbers are going down drastically. If yes, then the battery life is over.

Yes i know it's not u'r program.but u suggested me this,that's why i said that.
Anyway yes it's saying that it can hold more power,but it holding less..& also in cmd there are 14 errors,19 warnings & i think 12 informational messages,btw did u see the report ?
And some questions from messages that i saw in report
do i really need to set automatically sleep time in all power plans ? (because i selected never) because then it will automatically sleep my pc after 15 minutes,whatever time set there ?
& some more annoying messages there.well i'm re-installing my windows now.will see how it goes & reply back !!

Koi naa veere! ae taa honda hi rehnda aae

(translation: Don't worry bro! it happens).

Yes, change the power plan. That helps to save the battery as well.
