I took my computer to this place, besides being a mess of an experience (had to file a complain with the better business bureau) after getting my computer back I noticed now the battery which used to last two hours now can barely hold 20 minutes fully charged and on power saver mode.

Did the windows (vista) reinstall may have screwed up something there? any alternatives besides changing the batter?

By the way, IT IS THE SAME BATTERY, no one exchanged it.

I had the same thoughts as Plebs and Jonnythan.

I posted that at the same time you posted above and therefore had NOT read your reply, no need to get your knickers in a twist

It has my initials engraved in the inside and it has a small dent right where it hooks with the computer.

Buy a new battery. The shop you took it to sounds like a rat shack, so they would probably deny swapping the batteries (if they did).

About 24 hours. I took it there for a boot file corruption.

It's possible they could have programs running in the "background" that could decrease the battery life, but to decrease it that much your computer would be so slow it would be almost impossible to not notice.

Other than swapping batteries, I don't know of anything else that could cause such an extreme drop in performance.
