I have a Dell Latitude D620. I recently installed a new hard drive, and with it a new version of XP. At the time, the battery in my laptop was dead (e.g. unplug it and it shuts off in 5 seconds).
A few days later I got a brand new battery. However, my computer will not stop giving me the same messages about my battery being about to die. When I start up my computer, I get a message. Whenever I unplug it from the wall, I get a pop up screen telling me its about to die. Most annoyling, If i'm using it without the cord, windows after about an hour will shut down because it says my battery is dead. When I start it back up, it will last for another hour hour on the battery just fine. The battery indicator in the toolbar is fine - it will tell me I have about 2 hours fully charged.
Not sure what to do at this point. I have tried running my battery down to when it actually dies, but i'm still getting the messages.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
