Windows 7 Laptop Battery Mystery Deepens

Microsoft is reporting its latest findings into a possible link between Windows 7 and failing laptop batteries.

And the latest findings are.....

that there are no findings! (Thank you, Microsoft!)

The blame game is officially afoot, however.

"Unidentified sources" within Microsoft have started their whisper campaign with reporters claiming that there is no way Windows 7 could interact with the BIOS in such a way to interfere with battery life.

The most obvious culprit would be a faulty driver not working properly to charge the battery.

PC makers point out the drivers are Microsoft-supplied.

The "whisperers" point out Microsoft has sold 60 million copies of Windows 7. If the problem is with the operating system, then why so few problems relative to the number of copies in circulation?

Stay tuned.
