acer 5551 not fully charging

Specs: Windows 7 , 3GB
I have an Acer 5551 laptop about 3 months old and have noticed lately the battery will not charge up past about 86% no matter how long I charge it. The orange charge light wont turn to blue like it used to when fully charged. Is the battery faulty or can it be recalibrated? I have tried letting the battery fully die and charge again from scratch but it still wont get past the eightys

Maybe some cells in the battery have been damaged due to power fluctuations. Please get it checked out. Try leaving it on charging for at least 8 hours and then see what happens.
