as the main subject says "Consider Replacing Your Battery" message appeared all of a sudden for my Qosmio X770-11C.
The way i use my laptop is not with battery on, mostly plugged in all the time. From time to time i use the battery to empty it till 0% and then while laptop is closed i charge it to full. Got the laptop for 4-5months and used the battery overall not more than 3 times, so can't be that problematic.
Never had an issue with such a message in the past, but probably after an update or something from Windows, it started showing up and i saw it just today.
Googled the fact and found out that there is a history of this battery notification since Windows 7 RC , but my question is,
Is anyone of you aware of this? Anyone know a possible fix or solution that actually works? Any advice?
I know that i could contact Toshiba and maybe solve this with a battery replacement (probably) , but as i am sure
that my usage of the battery is minimal and it never had a problem , maybe is a thing that we can fix somehow.
In your case I recommend to calibrate the battery.
Calibrating means to discharge the battery completely until its fully empty and then to charge it until the battery charging indicator would switch to green.
This procedure should be repeated several times in the row to ensure that the battery has been calibrated properly.
Of course this would work only if the battery is not faulty…
Since this message could appear due to battery malfunction, an replacement would be possible too…
By the way: please check if an VAP (value added package) update or new installation would helps to remove this message.
