Battery won't charge past 80% U460

Today I noticed my battery won't charge past 80% on my U460 laptop. I bought it around 9/30/2010 and currently using Windows 7 home edition. Tried completely discharging it and regarging and still no luck. I find it hard to believe it could be already dying on me with how I take care of it . Any help?

Hi Mx22,

 

please open Lenovo Energy Management and change setting from Optimize for Battery Lifespan (limited charging to 80%)

to Optimize for Battery Runtime (charging 100%).

Re: Battery won't charge past 80% U460

I've always had that set to optimize for battery life span but it showed 100% charge. Unless I need to reset the gauge? I haven't touched anything while optimize for battery life was active and the gauge always showed 100%. Just woke up to see it never goes past 80% now.

yes. I rightclick the batter icon, then click power options, and the only thing i can do is change my power plan (screen brightness, display timer, sleep time).  I dont see a battery saving option anywhere.
