I have had my laptop for 2 years now and i think my 2nd battery has gone as well, i have gone into the power options and it has been on 11% for weeks now if i unplu it the screen goes really black and you can barly make out the icons. Has it got a charge issue?

Cheers

There may be an option in BIOS to calibrate the battery. When you plug in the charger, the laptop takes that as the discharged level. By calibrating, the level is reset to 'flat'.

how do i get to that?

You need to know the key to press on boot. On mine it's F1. Search for BIOS in Help.

Battery Calibration is under the Exit menu on mine.
