Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A60 Notebook ?

My Toshiba Satellite SPM30 (4 years old) reports an empty battery after 10 minutes. However, if I connect a fully charged battery to a big 10 Ohm resistor, it still seems to have the rated capacity op 4 Ah The voltage over each of the cell pairs is equal within some 10 mV, so no obviously duff cells. Is there some software solution before I spend $150 on a new battery?

Answers :

All you need do is to get a new battery.
