I have just replaced the battery in my laptop, and since then my battery meter has been reading incorrectly. I have drained the battery and let it recharge to 100% a couple of times to let it recalibrate. But the meter will still show a constant charge percentage (i.e. showing 92% for an hour).

I have a Toshiba Satelite, running Windows 7. I changed the battery because my computer gave me a warning that the last battery was going bad and wasn't holding a charge.

Thanks in advance for your help.

It will read the same number, like 92% and then die. The problem is that the battery percentage change never registers with the computer.

My computer showed the battery plugged in but not charging. I popped it out for 15 seconds and put the battery back in and now it shows charging.
