In addition, you might run a Power Efficiency Diagnostics Report to see what the results say. It has a "Battery analysis" section to help you get more information about your battery.

Hope this helps,

Battery:Last Full Charge (%)
The battery stored less than 40% of the Designed Capacity the last time the battery was fully charged.

Design Capacity 44400
Last Full Charge 17483
Last Full Charge (%) 39


I also have two errors of:
USB Suspend:USB Device not Entering Suspend

and one:
CPU Utilization:Processor utilization is high

Som,

Do you have the Windows 7 chipset driver version, and the latest BIOS for your laptop installed? I have seen issues like this before when people do not.

If you do, then your battery may be nearing the end of it's life.

The latest BIOS from Toshiba for A300 is from 2009. The is no update. Where do I get the Win7 chipset driver from?

There should be a Vista chipset driver you can get from Toshiba, or you can google "A300 windows 7 chipset driver".

EDIT: I got my battery down to the point that the laptop will not start but lights come on for a second, and the meter on the battery still has one light (out of five) coming on. Should I try to discharge the battery further?

Fully draining a battery can damage it beyond repair.
It is advised not to do that.

I didn't. I drained it a little more, but not 100%. I let it charge, which took about twice as long as it has in the past to recharge, but no change. I was actually hoping something would change so that the OP would have evidence that it worked.

EDIT: I think I mentioned before that my battery has reached the point that my computer doesn't even realize it is there, and needs to be replaced anyway.

Draining fully and recharging has no effect on lithium-ion batteries, they have no memory effect like nickel cadmium batteries do. You can keep a lithium-ion battery powered up all day long and it will not effect it.

Actually, many people find that cycling a Li-ion battery helps some problems with them. Li-ion batteries have whats called a smart chip inside them. . Supposedly the smart chip in the battery sometimes thinks the battery is fully charged when it isn't. Completely discharging the battery forces the chip to reset. On Microsoft's support site they also recommend doing this to try to solve the problem th OP has. Its not for the same reason as far as I know. Apparently they think the mobo doesn't detect the battery correct;y. If it would have no effect at all, why would MS and thousands of others, including people on this site recommend it?
