Computer says battery needs to be replaced, but battery shows fully charged!

This question is not answered

I have a Dell Inspiron E1705. Under Battery Health the computer tells me "Your battery can no longer provide sufficient power to your system and needs to be replaced." However, the status shows 100% charged, and when I press the button physically on the battery all of the LEDs light up indicating it is full. What is wrong??

  • I have the same problem with my Inspiron 1721 and the result is carried through with the diagnostic utility. i am able to use the battery just fine but afraid to use it for very ling and I have never used the laptop without an external power source to drain it.
