Advent Roma 2001 Battery issues

I have had my Advent Roma 2001 (Windows 7) for about a year and a half now, it now only holds about 5-10 minutes of battery even though it says 100% 1 hour 6 mins remaining, usually cutting out around 80% battery.

I have tried numerous times to edit the power options and power plans but nothing worked, i have now set the battery settings to default.

Another Roma 2001 user is experiencing the same issue, after purchasing a new replacement battery, he/she has the same issue.

Any ideas? is this a hardware issue?

You would probably be far better off posting this question on the Advent forums.

As a general point about laptop batteries, try getting it professionally tested.

Do you run on the battery all the time or do you use mains? The battery in my Evesham laptop has lasted for 9 years and is still as good as new.
