Specs: xp home, 1.6 ghz 512
I have had this laptop for about 7 months. The battery would always charge to 100%, up till now. Now it only charges to 80%, why would this be?

No idea but do you "calibrate" laptop batteries the proper way as follows:?

1. Disable the Windows Power Management.
2. Fully charge the battery.
3. Fully discharge the battery.
4. Keep the AC adapter connected to the notebook until the battery has completely charged.
5. Enable the Windows Power Management.
