Hello, I own an Aspire V3-571G-6407 which recently updated itself to Windows 8.1.Last night it suddenly started beeping, as it charges itself on and off. The level of the battery is 100% but I cannot keep the laptop plugged in anymore at this level, as it keeps beeping with the screen getting slightly darker and then beeping with the screen getting bright again every 10-15 seconds. I never had this issue before. I spoke to a Windows techical support but they claim this is not a Windows issue but a manufacturer's problem. I removed the battery and plugged the laptop cord in and it works just fine. Also, once the battery is at 100%, and I unplug the cord with the battery plugged in, the beeping stops but, of course that is because the power cord is unplugged. What causes this annoying beeping and will I be able to use my laptop with the power cord plugged in even if the battery level is at 100%? (I am currently charging my laptop and it is at 97% with no beeping. The beeping only starts at 100%.)
