I seem to recall reading somewhere one of the previous bios releases worked better for generic batteries. That or I'm going crazy... I ask because I have a cheapo 8-cell I got off Amazon that does very well but charges VERY slow. Slow as in 1% after almost 2 hours. The battery actually will hold a decent charge though once it gets charged... I'm just curious if I should try yet another battery or attempt to downgrade the BIOS. By habit I upgraded this as soon as I saw it had A01 to the latest A07. I know the jack and all's fine since the original battery was completely dead (no shorts or anything) Any ideas, or should I just get myself another battery and hope for the best?
