    Hi,

    I noticed recently that my laptop battery is not very efficient. After I charge and disconnect it from the outlet, it says on the battery icon that there is about 1/2 hour remaining. In the past, I could use it for about 2 hours and now if I get lucky, maybe 1/2 hour. Also, there's red light blinking(I think it means the battery is going to run out soon) all the time even if it's connected to an outlet. Is there a way to fix them? thanks!

    Yes sounds like the battery is going done..the first sign it not holding a charge for long.

    I would start looking at a replacement for it and don't rely on it until it has been replaced.
