Consider Replacing your battery.
Many of who are using laptops/notebooks or netbooks running on Windows 7 may experience this problem. Why is that? What does it mean? Is it fault of Windows 7 ?

So, why this is happening? Every new battery obviously have a 100% of original capacity. However with time as we use the battery for sometime the original capacity is starting to decrease, and even if you charge it to full, it won't be able to hold that long as it used to when it was new.
When the battery is only able to hold no more than 40% then Windows 7 will notify you of that problem by flashing red "X" on your battery icon in the conner of you screen.

This function was not available in previous versions of windows. It's new, and very useful as it prevent you from being surprised every time when you computer shut down when you unplug the power supply. This can also help you to save money on the computer repairs. Why? Many people who were using the previous versions of windows that doesn't have that function used to go to the computer service and report that their laptop shuts down every time they disconnect it from the power supply. The service will obviously solve the problem by replacing the battery, but the batteries they have are usually more expensive and they can charge some fee for replenishment which will take 1 min. So, thanks to that function of windows 7 you can save money on unnecessary expenses by buying the battery cheaper and fitting it yourself. Where can I get them from? offers wide range of original laptop batteries and adapters.

Even the rechargeable batteries need replacement some day!
Replace your one today!
