Hi,

On my new Alienware 17 R2 Laptop I got this strange message saying that I have 131 hours of battery remaining. Why is it saying that? The laptop is new, does this mean that I got a faulty battery piece?

Thanks

Just a Windows bug. I've had that happen to me before. Reboot the computer and report back.

Update: New computers don't generally ship with the latest BIOS - my Toshiba E55t-A5320 shipped with version 1.30 even though 1.50 was released 3 months before I bought it.

Then how can I check the actual installed version?

System Information (not "System" or PC info). If you can't find it, create an empty text file and name it "Access.nfo" and double click on it. There you can check the BIOS version.
