15R2 battery not fully charging

My Alienware 15R2 is about 2 months old and recently, the battery fails to fully charge.  It gets to 99% and stops, never reaching 100% any longer.  Please advise.

Thank you.

Do you have desktop mode battery charge enabled? That might do it.

Common with all laptops.

Try discharging battery down to around 10-20% once.
