    Has anybody had any problem with battery? My lappy just got 1 years old and HWMonitor reports that battery wear is 67% :S Is there any way I can renew it with software?

    You can't renew it with any software. The only solution is buy new one. Batter capacity will start degrading as soon as they leave the factory. In your case, it degrading faster. A couple of factors can caused it, for example heat. Li-Ion battery which usually use in notebook battery are sensitive with high temperatures.

    Code 10 error means drivers for that hardware is not installed. You can upload the picture at imageshack.us or photobucket.com. Then post the link over here.

    Actually not true. After some digging I stumbled over the battery re-calibration story. Went through it and now my wear level is only 42% vs the earlier 67%. I did it multiple times in a row and it really worked because the battery life has increased noticeably.

    I knew that 67% over 1 year period just isn't normal. Re-calibration helps!

    Yes, that is true if the battery controller report wrong wear level. Re-calibration will help. However, if the battery cell already degraded, you won't be able to resurrect them at all (which actually I'm referring to in my previous reply). Actually 67% wear level in one year can happen. It depend on the battery cell quality & other factor as well. Notebook usually use Li-Ion battery. You can find a lot of information on the Li-Ion battery.

    Wait what? Studio 1558 had 2 motherboards, one with DGPU soldered onto the motherboard and the other just has integrated graphics.

    Core i5 has integrated GPU on the same die as the CPU.

    Studio 1558 does not have switchable graphics.
