Sony Vaio battery problems.

Hey guys, im not sure if this is the right section or not but oh well.

I have a sony vaio VGN-NR31J/s laptop, and i recently installed Windows 7 ultimate, it runs perfectally but im having some issues with my battery.

First problem is that i only get about 30-40 minutes maximum battery life, opposed to the 3 - 3.5 hours i had on vista.

The other problem is that it takes a whopping 5 hours to charge back up!

i have no idea whats causing these problems, i have installed the most up to date drivers for everything, installed sony vaio power management and tweaked every setting possible, but still no change.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated, thankyou.

With Lithium ion batteries, you will want to turn off sleep and hibernate and drain them once per month.

Completely drain the battery, then fully charge it.

It will help, but it may be beyond repair if you have never done this.

It can't hurt to try it.

You can also go in to advanced power options and change the settings on the battery.

Good luck. Hope this helps in some small way.
