Lenovo Thinkpad T410: Bought a different battery, issues reporting %

Good afternoon all,

I have been in the process of making my laptop, a Lenovo Thinkpad T410, a much better device to use. While I've been having HDD issues, my main issue right now is the battery that I had purchased. With the IBM Power Manager software, the battery is listed as a Sanyo 42T4710. It is a 9 cell battery and I will provide any other information you need.

When I had first purchased the device, after charging for awhile the battery icon on the laptop would begin to flash amber. It will not charge to 100%, and usually stops at 96%. With the battery manager, the charge threshold is set to "Always Full Charge (Start when below 96% and end at 100%). I tried to run the battery gauge reset option, however the laptop permanently stayed at 96% and never discharged lower than that.

Are there any recommendations that you can make for what I should do with the battery?

Thanks!

Nope, the laptop will be completely shut down and it goes to 96% then the battery indicator on the laptop changes from green to flashing amber.

GoKay,

The battery charges however it just stops at 96% and then the amber light flashes on the laptop. It can't ever reach 100%. I also can't perform battery maintenance because it never reaches 100%. I've followed the guide that you have posted however I have not had any different results.

Thanks!
