Acer Aspire laptop battery

  1. Hi there, I have had my Acer Aspire 7741g for a few months (roughly 4 months) Within the past month the battery drains really quickly. E.G. I plug it in when the warning pops up, telling me to plug it in, I leave it plugged in right up until it has finished charging, I may even leave it in until long after it finished charging but this cannot affect it as the it stops charging at 100%. OR If I unplug it at 100% it is dead within literally 30 minutes. When it was brand new it would barely last 2 hours, but I know this is normal, especially for such a powerful laptop, and running various programs e.t.c.

    I know it is unlikely but is there any thing that can be done, or that I have done wrong? I bought it from PCWorld and have their techguys package, would this cover me getting a new battery? Alternatively, where can I find one online at a reasonable price? I have looked but cannot find one specifically for my laptop.

    Thank you much
