It could be that Windows 7 has not had the time to calculate the expected life the current charge on the battery. It can sometimes take 5-10 minutes for Windows to get a good idea of what the computer is doing (usage and stuff) before it can give a life expectancy.

Be patient and try again later. :huh:

Well, like Jacee suggested, you can always use a third-party program to keep track of your usage and time left.

Not sure why Windows doesn't report back with the time left, but it would just be easier to use another program to tell you. :huh:

Enjoy Windows 7! :huh:

Besides, all it can do is give a best guess based on the current power consumption.
