CNET heard Microsoft is investigating a battery issue with Windows 7. The software giant said some Windows 7 users are getting a warning that there is a problem with their notebook battery when, in fact, there is not.
"We are investigating this issue in conjunction with our hardware partners, which appears to be related to system firmware," a Microsoft representative said in a statement on Tuesday.
The warning in question uses the computer's basic input output system (BIOS) to try to determine whether a battery needs replacement. For some reason, the signals are getting crossed and some users are getting the message even when they should not.
