Check battery light is on and low beams keep burning out very quickly!

(1990 Honda Accord)
in Salt Lake City, UT on September 16, 2010
I have a '87 Honda Accord LX. I woke up one morning to go to work, started the car, and found that my check battery light was on and my head lights werent coming on, so I took another car. Later that day I tried the brights and they worked but low beams still did not and the battery light was still on. I found that the low beams were burned out so the following day I bought and installed new higher quality lamps which worked. I had other problems with the car so I didnt drive it that day. The following day when I thought I had every thing fixed so it would be drivable, the low beams were burned out again without the car being driven. The battery light is still on. Ive checked the fuse and it is fine, i just replaced the switch, and the connections are fine. Any sujestion would be wonderful.

Check the charging system and make sure the car is not overcharging.
