First off I want to say I wasn't sure if I should post here or in external hardware, so apologies if i'm not where i should be.

I have an HP pavilion ze4600. I've notice that even when the laptop shuts down at what Windows is saying 10%, when i pull out the battery and press the indicator it shows that the battery is 60% charged. I've searched around Google, but maybe I'm not using good keywords or something, cause I can't find much info.

My basic question is which indicator is true? If i really do have 60% life left in the battery how do i get Windows XP to recognize it? Thanks.

I would trust the hardware indicator more than I would the software one
