I have a about a less than year old Acer Travelmate 5530 that I installed windows 7 on it. Its been running smoothly and the battery hasnt been bad either. Im getting a pop saying consider replacing your battery in the lower right hand corner with a red X. Im wondering is it the OS lieing to me and my battery is fine or is my battery really shot??

Had the same issue. If its about 7 years old, or even 5, the laptop that is, chances are the Battery is toast. And well my inverter just went bad, and or backlight, so I have to replace both. One way to test it is to unplug the laptop from the wall, and if the pc shuts down in 5 minutes, then your battery needs to be replaces, which is up to you. If you are a businessman and need a system without the wires, ebay has good prices on batteries and a 3 year warranty to back it up. Check it out!

I had no issues with the battery when I had WIndows XP. When I Upgraded, the battery didn't hold a charge anymore, Im curious to know what causes that.

I think it's a bug related to the Windows 7 OS. There are many laptops users who have faced the same problem when upgrading to Windows 7.
