Genuine Battery not attached !!?

Q: Genuine Battery not attached !!?

How do I stop this notification. I have had this same battery since I purchased this computer 3 years ago. I have never had problems. This notification only showed up after the latest Windows 10 upgrade. I googled this problem and found instructions to remove lenovo power manager. I did this, but still got the warning. I looked at my services and disabled it . Didn't work.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

I am having a message that says "Genuine Lenovo Battery Not Attached" message that appears after Windows 8.1 starts up. A similar sort of message appears before even Windows boots up, and I need to press the 'Esc' key in order for Windows to boot. This seems to have happened after a recent Windows update. I have uninstalled an reinstalled the Lenovo Power Management Driver but it does not appear to have fixed the issue. My BIOS is the latest version. This issue is on my Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga S1. Any assistance is appreciated.

Get into BIOS and load defaults, save and exit.
 
Open Device Manager and under Battery Look for Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control method Battery, right Click on it and uninstall it, Restart after uninstallation.
 
Please let me know the happenings!

Hi and a very good day to all,

The computer I am using constantly prompts that i am using a non-genuine windows and that is all, no "non-genuine logo" on the bottom right corner, no black screen. Just the prompt saying non genuine.

So, I thought I was clever (obviously I am not) and tried to change the product key using the OPTION TWO specified in Product Key Number - Change

An Error appeared... The error says

"On a computer running Microsoft Windows non-core edition, run 'slui.exe 0x2a 0x8002801D' to display the error text. Error: 0x8002801D"

Tried running the following commands on elevated command prompt, "slui.exe" and "slui.exe 3" and "slui.exe 0x2a 0x8002801D", but nothing happened.

So I ran the command

I have run a precautionary MGADiag report, before I go ahead and attempt a clean reinstall of Win 7 Ultimate x64 on my Acer E1-571 laptop, since I found the product id and key for the current installation advertised on a number of websites.

A:MGADiag Tool report attached - genuine or not? And then what?

It's likely genuine. The original factory Windows 7 OEM-SLP install activates against a SLIC table in the BIOS. That will only work if you install with the matching factory install media. Those OEM_SLP keys are blocked from online activation. They are also listed on web sites so you'll get hits if you Google them. The original factory OEM-SLP key will not activate online. You need the key on the COA sticker if your using standard install media. Remove the battery and have a look in the battery compartment. They sometimes hide it in there so it doesn't get damaged and unreadable.

I purchased a replacement 70++ battery from a third party for my T530.  It came in a box with Lenovo tape on it, but I was concerned when I compared the information on the new battery to the old one.  The new one has min. 7690mAh and says Li-ion 20 versus the old one saying min. 7950mAh and Li-ion 00.  Is there a way to make sure the battery is genuine?  The s/n on the box brought up the right product number on the lenovo site, but that number isn't anywhere on the battery itself.  Also, the barcode number on the battery doesn't correspond with any numbers on the box it came in.  I'm concerned about putting it into the computer until I can gain some insight or verify the battery's authenticity.  Can anyone help?

If it was purchased from Dell, it's genuine.  Otherwise, ask the seller.  That product ID's date code indicates the battery was built 2012 -- so if it is original Dell, it's been sitting on a shelf for a while - or is used.

I have just purchased a replacement battery for my X220 as the current 44++ battery was down to around 50% of its original charge.  However I have read quite a few posts mentioning that there are a large number of fakes out there so I just wanted to run this past the experts to see if my battery is indeed genuine or a crafty counterfeit. Mine came in a Lenovo branded box and to my eyes looks genuine. The only thing that concerns me (and lead to this research) was the fact it states "Use of another battery may present a fire or exportion".  However reading other threads this actually may be a genuine typo. Photos available at: https://1drv.ms/f/s!AvPybbu3LYv0kkBstGx2ShsHOOqE Thanks in advance! Howard

For a genuine Dell battery you'll pay $80-100 -- consider carefully spending that on a system that has a resale value of between $50-75 on the used market (in other words, you'll be spending more on the battery than the system is worth).

Hi all - I recently purchased what I believed to be a genuine 44++ Lenovo 9 cell battery, however a few things have caused me to suspect it might not be genuine. When it arrived the sticker was loose as shown in one of the photos below, I thought Lenovo serial numbers had to be 22 characters and this only has 20?  The batteries I can see under the loose sticker I believe are the correct type though for the model? So perhaps the sticker was just loose and the serial number is fine and I'm worrying over nothing. Any ideas anyone? I tried to contact Lenovo on Facebook but had no response, can't find a support email address and can't raise a new ticket as I don't have a working serial number to use. Thanks Tim 

A:Bought as genuine new, possible fake 44+ battery

This is a fake battery with no doubt. In general, we don't want to give public details why it's fake, so producers could possibly fix issues after.Anyway, from my recent experience, all of these are using LG or Samsung cells which are actually good and durable. Are you satisfied with battery life?If you purchased it on eBay, I advise you to contact the seller and ask for a full refund, especially if it was advertised as "genuine".In that way, after significant amount of refunds for "genuine" batteries, maybe we can impact that market.

Hello Apologies if someone has already posted this query and got a response. My G700 has Lenovo's Energy Management software (8.0.2.4) installed. Until recently, the battery would charge (and drain) as expected - it is the original that came with the laptop a few weeks ago. I'm running Windows 8 and haven't upgraded to 8.1 yet. However, now I get a pop-up box from the software every time I boot up from saying that "the system does not support batteries that are not genuine Lenovo-made or authorized.....". Also, the software is preventing the battery from being charged, so I'm having to use the mains power. Lenovo's support has suggested that it might be a (physical) problem with the battery, but it seems to be a software-related. Please can someone help with this one? Is there an update to the software that I can install? Can it be disabled to allow the battery to be charged? Does the problem go away with an upgrade to Windows 8.1?  Thanks in advance!

A:G700 - Energy Management says battery is not genuine and won't charge it!

Hi Ammo23,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
    This error may be a Software/Firmware Related or the battery is really bad and being read as not genuine.
can you try Doing this,
 
 
 1. Try Performing a power Drain and BIOs Reset.

Remove the AC adapter and the battery, Now Hold Down the power Button for at least 10 sec. This will drain the Mainboard.
Reconnect the Ac and Battery and Turn on the system,Right away start tapping F2 to boot into BIOS Setting.
Hit F9 to Load defaults and enter for Yes then hit F10 To save and Exit then Enter for Yes.

 2. When Booted Back up to Windows,
              Open Device Manager and under Battery Look for Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control method Battery
              Right Click On it and uninstall it, Restart after uninstallation.
 
Check if the issue will be the same after the Steps.
       If still the same, Uninstall the Lenovo Energy Management from Control Panel / Programs and restart the system.
         check if the system will charge without the Energy Management Software,
 
  If the same thing happened I would Suggest you call Lenovo Support right away and report the steps your did and still getting the same result.
 
Let me know your Findings
Cheers!

Hi, I have a Hp pavilion dv6700 series (dv6840el) and it just won't boot without the battery attached. If i plug the AC adapter, i get some computer activity (fan, dvd drive noise and HD drive spins) for about 5 seconds and then shuts down. Once i plug the battery (which is dying, needing a replacement), the laptop boots fine. So, my question is: is this a motherboard or an AC adapter issue? The AC adapter seems ok, though. But if i'm considering to buy a spare battery, i must make sure that i don't need a new AC adapter as well.  Thanks in advance.

A:Re: Laptop won't boot without battery attached

Same issue here----I have an HP DV6700 which I really like----I got a new battery for it as well as a new power adaptor (figuring I'd try process of elimination), but after reading many related articles online, I can't get it to boot up to charge the battery OR run with just the adaptor.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

My old original battery discharges in 30 minutes and I purchased an original new one from Toshiba authorized dealer in Croatia.

After several days of charging and discharging, the new genuine Toshiba battery discharges 1.5 hours of normal use without powering any external devices nor optical drive.

Toshiba specification for this model of Portege states that battery should last approximately 4 hours.
How I can get the battery replaced when local dealer stated that he can not guaranty battery life and that the new battery came directly from authorized Toshiba parts distributor in Europe?

> After several days of charging and discharging, the new genuine Toshiba battery discharges 1.5 hours of normal use without powering any external devices nor optical drive.

The battery should be calibrated properly. This means that you should charge and discharge the battery until it?s fully empty. This should be repeated several times?

Furthermore the battery working times depends on notebook usage? using notebook with max display brightness or running applications which needs full CPU, GPU and HDD performance would decrease the battery working time.

Hi all

I'm using a thinkpad T60. I think my battery is out, I've been checking it through the ThinkVantage and it said battery ok but should discharge and recharge. I did that and it was ok for a few weeks but power gauge always says 80%-90% and less than a hour, it goes into hibernation.

Now, without AC, my thinkpad can't be switched on. I leave the ac on while the battery is still attached to use it. The battery icon is orange and blinking. When I've shut down, I remove the ac plug. I've never removed the battery before since I've used this thinkpad 4 years ago.

Is this harmful to my thinkpad, all my data and stuff?
I'm reluctant to remove the battery in case dust gathers around the exposed portion. I'm also reluctant to buy a new battery as I'm thinking of getting a new netbook, those 10" type of laptop.
What's the best way to manage and keep using this thinkpad without a new battery, or is it a big NO NO???

Please help, I'm not very IT savvy. Thanks in advance!

I attached 2 portable phone chargers to my laptop by usb connection to charge them and a few minutes later my laptop screen went black and laptop will not turn back on.
What may be the problem?
 

A:Attached portable phone battery to laptop now won't turn on

try disconnecting the batteries and anything else connected to the laptop
then
Lets try doing a hard reset on the Laptop

This will work for Laptops that have a removable battery
Remove the Battery
Unplug the Power Adapter/charger
Now hold the Power Button down for 60 seconds - let go of the Power Button

Now Put back JUST the power adapter/charger back into the Laptop
Start the Laptop up
If it now Starts up OK
we know its working and can put the battery back in - But first we need to use the normal windows Shutdown on the Laptop, before we can put the battery back in.
So, run the shutdown , when the laptop turns off completely
remove the power adapter/charger lead again

Put the Battery back into the laptop
Put the power adapter/charger back into the laptop
Now see if laptop starts {sometimes batteries can fail and stop the Laptop starting}
If the PC starts OK with the battery , then all should be fixed

=================================================================
