Windows 7: Consider replacing your battery error

Consider replacing your battery error

This happened about a week ago. I was studying for a test and for some reason the library didn't have power in the outlets. So eventually my laptop shut down after reaching a certain percentage for battery life. I had to turn my computer on to get numbers from a document and it gave my some warning before I turned it on saying the battery was low. Whatever, I turned it on for about 2 minutes and then powered it down. After getting home, charging it up and turning it on I suddenly get the message that my battery needs to be replaced. My laptop is almost 2 years old, but the battery was still able to get about 3 hours on powersaver and lower screen brightness. Even while I have this message I still get over an hour and a half with full screen brightness on balanced. Normally I wouldn't care if it told me to replace my battery, but this message has prevented me from being able to see how much time I have left for my battery.

Of course I can replace my battery, but I doubt that this is the issue because it was fine one minute and not fine the other and I want to wait a bit longer to get a new one if I can. I know that this has been a problem with other people and I wanted to know if anyone has found a solution. I really just want my computer to tell me how much time I have left without running some other application. Suggestions?

Just googled the problem and got.
Also note that there is no way we can reset the battery warning with out replacing the battery. It is a warning alarm and can not be stopped ..
