    Brand new 150, 160GB HDD w/ XP Home. Battery stops charging after the meter in Windows reads 97%, light on computer stays orange.

    I've flashed the BIOS to 3309.

    Anybody have any idea? The machine runs fine otherwise.

    Yes I have thought this myself and will calibrate it. However, shouldn't the light on the machine itself turn green if it is fully charging? It is staying orange.

    I'm not quite sure about that, perhaps someone else can answer.
