    mine running windows 7 only gets about 40 mins with powersettings way low? what could cause this i tried using something to underclock the processor and that extends it maybe to an hour. I bought it from tigerdirect not too long ago for under 300. Could the battery be at the end of its game? Or am i running something wrong here because all the reviews say almost 5 hours... i dont get anywhere near that. Hope yall can help

    You probably have an old battery. What kind of usage were you getting under XP Tablet?

    Try resetting the battery.
    The easiest way is to reboot and run your machine on safe mode while its UNPLUGGED & let it sit until it shuts itself off (in safe mode, screen saver and other power saving programs/protocols are disabled). Plug it back in and you SHOULD see a difference.
