Battery is low?



  •  



  •  did it died?



  • Maybe your battery is an overachiever?



  •  Seems pretty obvious to me: you battery is 100% low.  It's not like partially low, it's all the way low.



  • there's mixed messages in this. It says "Battery is low (100%)" in the message but the title explicitly says "100% remaining on battery". Split the difference. Your battery is at 50%.



  • I would guess that either:
    -your battery's capacity isn't what it used to be -- despite beting at 100%, it will only last a few minutes
    -you have "warn low battery" set at 100%

    Or,

    • he just knows how to use photoshop. Or GIMP, to remain PC.


  • Actually I've seen this myself. On windows 7 no less. My Dell C600 (which runs Win7 with 384MB of ram, 40GB disk and 1400x1050@32bit resolution) and whenver I nudge the now bleugh battery, it tells me that I have only a few minutes left on a 100% battery. The reality is that the "Time remaining" is based on the mAh output versus the power consumption as reported by ACPI. Sometimes, the I2C line gets frazzled (or sometimes its a serial line, or sometimes just a voltage thats an A2D'd value). Same thing happens on my Zaurus, and the LI2+ batteries my PSP runs on.

    But photoshop runs just fine on PCs.
