Battery never at 100%

  1. Dec 14, 2005 #1
    I own an ASUS Z71V Notebook and I have some problem with the battery...

    here's the specs of the laptop:
    Pentium® M processor 760 2MB Cache 2.0GHz 533FSB
    Seagate 80GB/8MB Cache 5400RPM
    2GB DDR2-4200
    PCI Express Nvidia 6600-128MB
    DVDRW - Dual Layer
    Intel 802.11 a/b/g wireless card

    I've had this laptop for about half a year. Recently, the battery doesnt charge above 80%. I'm not sure why it's doing this. The charging light doesnt turn off and I'm not sure what the problem is. any ideas?

    Perhaps this is too obvious of an answer, but my first guess is that it's a bad battery.

    If you've owned it only 6 months, is it still under warranty? Maybe you can just get the battery replaced by the manufacturer.
