    not sure if I am in the right place to post this so feel free to move this if I am not, sorry. Anyway, I have a Sony laptop that keeps speaking to me that my battery is running low even though I am plugged into the wall! The battery says 100% charged. Any thoughts? I jiggled to make sure its in right but this happens every time I use the laptop now and her voice is pretty loud..

    What happens if you try running on battery only?

    after a few minutes or so the voice says "your battery is running low" even though the icon on the taskbar says plenty charged.

    Strange, how old is the battery/laptop? Have you ever tried running it completely down, then recharging?
