A relatively common problem among windows 7 users, I haven't yet been able to fix it. I'm running a Dell M14x, and my laptop's battery has about 9% charge left. The computer appears to be running only as well as it would as it does off AC only *aka: battery removed* and from past experience *this is a reccuring issue, third time now* when the battery hits 0%, if the power supply is removed, the laptop instantly dies.

Most fixes involve removing and updating the ACPI-complient Control Method Battery via Device manager, yet this has not worked. in past experience, merely removing the battery and replacing it starts charging again, though this no longer solves the problem.

The only discrepancy I can further find is that in the Bios, it merely lists under AC adapter [[Unknown]] despite it being the origional adapter with this machine. as far as I can tell, the adapter still works fine. Side note: All the diagnostics say that the battery itself still passes.

Suggestions? Known fixes?
