i have an inspiron n5010 notebook bought about an year ago ... the battery times it gave me at that time were very good ... but for 2 weeks its timing have been pretty short and just now i got a "consider changing your battery" icon ... i checked on HWmonitor my laptop's designd capacity is around 50000 mwh and the current capacity has been depleted to around 17k mwh... the wear level is 65%.

i need some advice as to what i should do to improve the battery timings if its possible or just some advice in general.
thank u.

Replace the battery. Or try a different charger. Most laptop batteries have a 1 year warranty, if you got your laptop about then, should be able to get a new one through warranty replacement.

That's what I said, but usually for only a year even if the laptop itself has a longer one.
