Dell laptop battery charge settings?

  1. Hi all,
    I have recently purchased a D430 laptop that comes with Vista. I found that there is no way I can set the charging scheme (i.e. charge only when battery power falls to xx%, etc that I found in my old IBM one). I don't want it to cycle at high percentages as it would degrade the battery fast. Removing the battery is not a good solution - it seems this model is designed to have the battery attached all the time.
    Any suggestions?

    Have you tried using another battery?

    I think your batter has been recalled, can you check that?
