It probably just needs a new battery. Rechargeable batteries won't last for ever and what shortens their life is people plugging their laptops in to use them even though they don't need recharging.

Have a look at this...

Lenovo ThinkPad T410 - i7 620M - 8GB RAM - Crucial M4 120GB SSD - 250GB 2nd drive - Intel HD 3000 GPU - 1440x900 - Windows 7/8

Agreed - to make sure, have you got a multimeter? If so test it after a full charge and see if it's at the required voltage. My guess is that it won't be - hence your problems!
