    Battery says 79% available and not charging


    Hi all...

    My Toshiba Laptop says it has a remaining battery charge of 79%. It then says it's not charging. It's supposed to charge up to 100%. There is an application that has to do with the battery life from Toshiba that says "No Peak Shift Patch". It says to install it before the "TOSHIBA eco Utility". When I installed the "No Peak Shift Patch" application, that is when I started seeing my battery not charging all the way up to 100% although it still charges.

    If someone knows of any solution, that would be appreciated!

    Thanks! :)

    @WOT... thanks for the help! I have another question. I just reset my PC, and can't get it to install my HP Printer. It says "The printer driver is not compatible with a policy enabled on your computer that blocks NT 4.0 drivers."

    Do you have any suggestions for that?

    Whay is the make/model number of the printer in question? Are you trying to install the driver from the manufacturer's disk and it is failing? If so, try going to device manager, selecting the new device (either known or unknown), and select update driver via Windows Update to see if that will work.

    Well, you did not provide the make/model as requested and I can't follow your process to see where it might be failing; however, I gave you an alternative recommendation.

    Good luck to you.

    I apologize. It's an HP 3632 Series wireless printer. I was in the middle of eating dinner.

    Have the same problem few months ago with my Acer. The only thing that i could do is changing the battery. I check the connector and everything, but it did not work.
