Afraid it is still ALIVE!
After doing at battery calibration is shows the battery to be good. I suspect the new Thinkvantage diagnostic software it downloaded
. The reason I think so it is now kicking out a warning that "one of my partitions has less than 15% freespace", LOL! It is looking like it is kicking this warning out because of my restore partition! SSD Drive C is using about 99GB and has over 60 free.
You would think that lenovo would have made adjustments to account for this small and near full restore partition.
Anyway all seems to work well now and you really can get an OEM 70++ 9 cell for about $90
