Windows 7: Battery always showing 100% remaining even if it's fully charged

10 Oct 2010   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

the battery charges normally when it's laptop works when i unplug the ac,until the battery discharges.i guess it has nothing to do with the battery and the ac.the only sign that there's something wrong is this icon which shows "100% remaining" instead of "plugged in,fully charged" or whatever.

i have seen this with hp laptops, one suggestion i have seen is to power down the laptop (switch it off not sleep or hibernate) then remove the battery, then turn it on without the battery, wait till it gets to the desktop, then turn it off and plug the battery back in. I have had a problem with the battery gadget showing plugged in not charging, but not your specific problem. I might suggest that you try to get another charger to see if you have the same problem, it could be yours is working enough to charge the battery, but not at correct specs.

Battery Life Time Remaining
I have a HP Pavilion laptop and when I hover over the battery icon it tells me the percentage of battery left but I was wondering if their was a way to get it to show me how much time I have left? I have seen other pc's with Windows 7 have this and I was wondering if mine can do this also. Thanks
