Inspiron 17r SE 7720 Windows 8.1 battery issue

I've got my laptop set as dual boot and on the Windows 8.1 Pro side (the other is Windows 7 Pro) it says the battery is constantly at 73% charge and charging.

I've downloaded the drivers available, but it still says this, but on my Windows 7 side it says the battery is full. This has only happened a year and one day since I bought my computer (so the battery warranty is now a day out) so I'm a little concerned about the timing and if it's an actual hardware rather than software problem. 

Has anyone else had this problem? I've had a few teething problems with 8.1, so I'm hoping this is the fault and not some devious Dell plot to make me buy a battery a day after the warranty on it runs out.
