Hi all,

I have an Origin EON 15X that I got about 3 years ago. Recently I've noticed that the computer will shut off when the battery reaches ~58%, suggesting the computer thinks the battery is at 58% when it's really empty. The computer turns on fine if plugged in, with or without battery. If I have it plugged in, the battery will charge...very slowly. It took about 5 hours to get from 83% to 84%.

I know most people will suggest calibrating the battery by charging it to 100%, letting it drain, and then charging it up again. The issue I have is (1) it takes so long to charge that I'm unsure if the computer can even reach 100% and (2) if I let it drain, it'll shut off at ~58% without reaching 0%.

Does anyone have any suggestions? I also thought about updating BIOS but I have exactly no idea what BIOS I have (it's listed as AMI with the manufacturer "Notebook").

Thanks in advance!
