Having problems with your Dell Inspiron E1505 Notebook ?

Battery percentage is decreasing...

\015 I always keep my plugged into the wall outlet via AC Adapter when in use.Having said that, each day, I pass my mouse over the "battery" icon on the taskbar; it reads "__% available (plugged in, charging)". The problem is, that the percentage decreases on an almost daily basis. To make matters worse, when I release my laptop from using the current that the wall outlet is supplying, my computer immediately turns off (the screen goes blank).Would you please let me know what the problem is, and more importantly, how to fix it?Concerned,Mark\015

Answers :

If your battery is a lithium ion battery then according to the folks at Battery University:
\015\012"The worst condition is keeping a fully charged battery at elevated temperatures, which is the case with running laptop batteries. If used on main power, the battery inside a laptop will only last for 12-18 months. I must hasten to explain that the pack does not die suddenly but begins with reduced run-times"

\015\012Hope that helps.
