✔ Best Answer

IF the battery is fairly new, try cleaning the electrical contacts with a pencil eraser (not likely to help, but worth a try). If it is not new, your power management in Windows has correctly identified a bad battery. It will only get worse so purchase a new one soon or you may not be able to use it shortly.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
