Som,
If you read the similar threads down below you will find replacing the battery problems others had.

1. Get your system backed up ASAP
2. You may end up replacing the battery after all said and done.
Keep us posted as to what you have done.

I've backed up everything. That's one of the first things I did. I'll look for a fix because I doubt it is the battery itself

The fix...is to replace your battery. It is a year old now and batteries start to die around that time. They do not last forever. Windows is merely reporting what the hardware is telling it. And the hardware is telling Windows the battery is coming to the end of life.

If there is a bug, the bug is in the hardware or in the manufacture drivers for the hardware.
Also downgrading to Windows XP won't fix the problem, your battery will still be dieing.
Windows XP just won't tell you about it like Windows 7 does.

When you get a new battery, you can use this article for ways to keep it going for a longer amount of time.
How to prolong lithium-based batteries

A part of the article:
Quote:
Simple Guidelines

Avoid frequent full discharges because this puts additional strain on the battery. Several partial discharges with frequent recharges are better for lithium-ion than one deep one. Recharging a partially charged lithium-ion does not cause harm because there is no memory. (In this respect, lithium-ion differs from nickel-based batteries.) Short battery life in a laptop is mainly cause by heat rather than charge / discharge patterns.

Batteries with fuel gauge (laptops) should be calibrated by applying a deliberate full discharge once every 30 charges. Running the pack down in the equipment does this. If ignored, the fuel gauge will become increasingly less accurate and in some cases cut off the device prematurely.

Keep the lithium-ion battery cool. Avoid a hot car. For prolonged storage, keep the battery at a 40% charge level.

Consider removing the battery from a laptop when running on fixed power. (Some laptop manufacturers are concerned about dust and moisture accumulating inside the battery casing.)

Avoid purchasing spare lithium-ion batteries for later use. Observe manufacturing dates. Do not buy old stock, even if sold at clearance prices.

If you have a spare lithium-ion battery, use one to the fullest and keep the other cool by placing it in the refrigerator. Do not freeze the battery. For best results, store the battery at 40% state-of-charge.
I'm thinking about buying two batteries and using whats mentioned in the the last paragraph. If I buy two, I'll switch them every month or two, to keep both lasting a little longer than this one did, but still have one in all the time. My usage habits make it impractical to have no battery at all. Plus I'll have two for long trips.

My last laptop had this problem. I refused to buy another battery if Windows 7 was just gonna damage it. Join the other hundreds of people with this problem. Hopefully my new netbook that came with Windows 7 doesn't mess up like that.

Windows 7 and the battery error "consider replacing your battery" (Part 1)

EDIT: 10 Parts!! Last time I checked that thread, it only got to part 2. Microsoft really needs to do something about it.

Say if I do get a new battery and this happens again a few weeks after (as I have read that this has happened) then what? buy another one?.....again?

Same here. That's why I need to find a fix. I need mine for work and this problem is really bad. I don't really want to be buying an unnecessary battery if the one I have is fine and Win7 is telling me to change it. I have a feeling it's a fault with Win7.

Then you talk to Toshiba. And tell them there hardware or drivers are faulty.
But your battery is old, alright. Your problem is an old battery.

Idon't know if Toshiba does the same but some batteries have indicator lights on them, press and hold it for a few seconds. Or look in the BIOS it will sometimes have information on battery condition unaffected by whatever OS you may have.

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.
Sadly, while this sounds great, it simply isn't true. I deal with batteries from customers every week who leave them plugged in and the batteries are no longer capable of charging....and they are LiOn. We've managed to revive a few by multiple cycles, but not most. Unfortunately, they are just as susceptible to this as NiCad batteries.
