ACK! I only have 0:00 battery life remaining! Oh wait... 87%?

  1. This is a strange one, very strange indeed. It's not a critical problem that I MUST get fixed immediately, but it has become a pet peeve over the past few weeks.

    So, I got my new Pavilion DV9000 series a couple weeks ago (After disabling the audible feedback on the media buttons, I love it) But the battery gauge fails to predict at all how much time I have left. I constantly have 0 minutes remaining.

    So, here's what I figure may be relevant to the situation:

    OS: Vista Home Premium
    Battery: Stock 16-cell battery.
    RAM: 1.5Gigs (Who knows, it may have some leverage on the problem

    It's all updated, and despite hours of googling, I haven't found a solution. Any ideas, guys?

    What program are you using as the battery gauge? The Vista builtin one or something that HP bundles?

    Maybe try a third-party hardware monitor thing like SpeedFan or NHC?
