The windows 7 battery bar is always at 100% until the laptop gets to 6% battery or less. How can i fix this? as the battery runs for a good two hours while on youtube and listening to music.

Dont watch youtube vids while youre using it on battery. It'll probably drain the battery faster

Try a different software, I use Battery Bar and it works fine.

Dont think thats the issue, its the battery alert thats giving the wrong info on battery life.

It's probably around 5 years old.

Its a Compaq Presario C300 (302TU)

I've used the battery in my old win xp presario v2000 and it's read correctly on that.

I suppose it's better than the battery always being at 0% :p
