Try Reinstalling the battery and run it completely dry for a few cycles.

okay... physically remove the battery from the notebook, wait 10 minutes, and put it back in.
And by "run dry" I mean leave your laptop on, unplugged, until the battery totally runs out and it shuts off. Then fully recharge it and see if that helps anything.
