I have an eeepc 904HA that I've had for about 2 and a half years. I like it. Works great. Until recently...
My power adaptor gave up the ghost, so I got another from ebay. Did the job for about 4 months then with a pop it overheated and broke. The company sent me a replacement that has worked fine so far...
Recently I noticed that my battery indicator has been losing bars. I checked. I turn it on, and run it for a while and it doesn't lose or gain even 1%. I turn it on the next night and it's 1-2% lower. This has gone on for a little while now. I'm at 44% and falling.
I never use it on battery mode. It's plugged in 24/7. I can cope if the battery flattens completely as long as it'll run off AC, but I'd like the option of using the battery occasionally.
My main worry is that it'll hit a low percentage and shut down and I'll not get it back up running.
I could stretch the funds and get a new battery, but if I do that, I'd want only an official battery, not a knock off, and an official charger to match. Problem is I can't see them on the ASUS site.
Any ideas on any of that? Cheers.
