Why is laptop not holding a charge for very long?

Specs: Windows 8.1
Bought Satellite 17" L75-B laptop a couple of months ago. Initially, laptop would stay charged for a couple of days in sleep mode. I was impressed. However, in the last week or so, won't even stay charged overnight in sleep mode...charges fairly quickly so it doesn't appear it is the charger itself. Any ideas?

The battery could be faulty. It should still be covered under Warranty. Contact Toshiba Warranty Support.

Even though the battery charges the laptop and pretty quickly to 100%?

Sleep mode still draws power. Check your manual for expected battery life.

In fact it can be quite the reverse. When a battery charges very quickly it is often a sign that it has problems (fast in = fast out).

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
