You should discharge you battery to 0 every 30 discharges or if that just too hard to remember, very 30 days. The reason you should do this is that battery charging is controlled by a specific scheme which has higher voltages applied at the start an tapers off as it gets to 100%. Over time as battery capacity changes, the battery charging scheme goes further and further "off target". If it thinks your battery is 85% charged when it is really nearing 100%, then you will be overcharging the battery reducing its useful life.

So.... do a full 10% drain every 30 charge cycles..... I use BatteryCare to keep me posted on where I am.

The other thing is keep track of temps while gaming .... if doing long sessions while plugged in, prolonged heat exposure can damage battery. So in such conditions, sometimes advisable to remove battery.

If you have not been doing this maintenance, then 2 years is not unusual.

try mo din po check ung output voltage ng charger using a voltmeter/tester, possible po kasi na bumaba na ung output voltage nun charger kaya detected sya as plug-in pero not charging kc di na tama ung output nya, usually 18.5V po ang output voltage ng mga charger, but to be sure look mo po ung specifications/rating ng charger... mkikita po yun sa mismong charger kung ano yun output nya then compare mo n lng sa measured voltage sa tester... if ala nmn drop sa output voltage most likely may tama na po ung battery. sana mkatulong po ito. :)
