Disable dead battery alert (x131e)?

Q: Disable dead battery alert (x131e)?

My Lenovo Thinkpad x131e is now used only to record TV shows off an antenna and is always plugged in. The battery died from old age a while back and I get a Lenono warning message in Windows 10 every time I boot the computer. The messaye is that the battery is dead due to normal use and cannot be charged (or something like that). Does anyone know how I can disable that message. It's not a huge deal as it only pops up once evey time the system is booted. But it would be nice to disable it as it will never again be used off the battery so it's nopt worth replacing itas I now use an x270 for those needs.Thanks for any help on this.Russell

Preferred Solution: Disable dead battery alert (x131e)?

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.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


I have a thinkpad x131e and it does not have a battery so I plan buying a battery. However, I could not find original battery in my country, but i found an old stock, original x130e battery. Do these two models use the same battery?

Hello everybody,I'd like to ask for a few things about the Lenovo X131e laptop.1) I can't flash the latest BIOS 3.00 from OS.2) I am not able to install "AMD USB Filter Driver" for a long time - every attempt ending in BSOD.3) I tried to replace the battery that was advertised as the original Lenovo 35+, but the laptop does not take it and does not charge it.At start-up two short beeps followed by a "The battery installed is not supported..." message. Then OS shows that the battery is not charging and finally the Lenovo Power Manager software shows the same message as on the startup... Does anyone have the similar experience with this, can someone give me an advice? With thanksJosef* Report from Lenovo Solution Center shows everything OK.

 We have 280 X131e and X140e (AMD) notebooks that are 4 years old.  The Lenovo batteries in the units needed to be replaced.  Lenovo batteries cost approximately 36% more than the BTI batteries.  We order two specimen BTI batteries before placing an order.  The specimen batteries were tested over the course of a week to 10 days in the X131e and X140e systems running Windows 7.  There were no "not charging" messages during the testing.  In August of 2017, we started school with 260+ batteries installed in the X131e and X140e systems.  All appeared to be going fine until approximately 2-3 weeks in to the school year.  Each day approximately 3-5 students using the BTI batteries appeared and indicate that they charged their notebook overnight (or all weekend) but the BTI battery was still dead within the first hour of school or less.  So on any given day approximately 240 batteries are charging without issue overnight. The student notebooks that appear have the following symptoms: 1.  The BTI battery has a charge of 0-8% or less based on the information reported in both Lenovo Power Manager and Windows Power manager.2.  The units indicate in both the Lenovo and Windows power management applications that the charger and battery are present but that the battery is "not charging."3.  Known good systems, chargers and batteries have been used for all testing.  BTI has confirmed that 20 of the batteries sen...

I know that a battery not holding a charge can sometimes be a motherboard problem, I don't want to spend the extra $50 on a new battery if it is the motherboard. Is there any way to decipher which one is the culprit.

There is no way to "disable" that messaging in the BIOS. What hardware changes did you make to the OptiPlex 9020 PRIOR to this boot message? Have you powered off, opened the case and reseated every cable?

when I turn on my computer I turn on my servers and then my desktop computer. Of course my desktop computer is faster so Windows Explorer always tells me it could not reconnect to the network drives (later they do connect) is there anyway I can turn that alert off?


A:Disable Network Alert?

I don't know how to disable the notification and I may have looked for this back in the Windows XP days and never found a solution. However I have an easy work around if your user name and passwords are the same on your server as the workstation.

Make short cuts to the mapped drives on your desktop, you can move them to your a place of your liking later. Open a command prompt and type:

net use * /d <enter>
net use /p:no <enter>
The code will remove your mapped drives and stop the machine from re-mapping them every time you log on. When you click on your shortcuts you will re-map the drive(s). Note: This will only work if the server is up and running, if the server is off or the server has not fully booted it will not work.

So, I thought I had this fixed when I managed to find a tweak for Windows 8 to disable the sticky corners. You set MouseClippingLength from 6 to 0. Seemed to the job. But it turns out, that didn't solve my problem completely. Along the right edge of the screen, there is an area that your cursor can fall into that is outside your full screen windows. It does not span the entire length of the right side, just the top 2/3, and it's 1-3 pixels in width. (I think 2.)

I've been googling all over the place and editing a lot of registry values to see if I can guess at it, but no luck. This ticks me off a great deal because I'm used to swinging my cursor all the way to the right to grab a hold of a scroll bar or close a window. I want it gone.

If anyone knows how to disable it, please let me know.
Edit: As it turns out, my second monitor (an HDTV that's turned off) wasn't working correctly, and I didn't even realize Windows 8 was trying to automatically use both monitors. My bad.

I bought this Y40 around a year and a half ago. Within a year (around 9 months I think), the battery got weak, and wouldn't last more than a half hour. Its been another 9 months, and yes, IT IS DEAD AGAIN. I'm a programmer and enthusiast, I know how to treat a lithium-ion battery. This time, my warranty is up, but my battery should LAST MORE THAN A FEW MONTHS. I refuse to pay $200 for one, and I can't figure out how to contact Lenovo; they make it impossible to actually contact anyone.  EDIT: Also, this happened after installing lenovo energy manager and updating some drivers

I got a new, genuine Lenovo 70++ 9 cell battery for my W530 for Christmas. I put it in last night night and in Lenovo Vantage it was reporting the full charge capacity to be 98.4 Wh which is correct. I then enabled the battery charge threshold feature and did a battery guage reset overnight. When I woke up this morning the full charge capacity was sitting 12.74 Wh and the battery only lasts 20mins. I've turned off battery charge thresholed and performed another guage reset but the battery full charge capacity has since declined to ~8 WH and is now down to 1.57 Wh. Can I recover from this or is the battery dead?

I own two new Dell Laptops, one a Precision workstation and the other an everyday Latitude, both running Win 7 Pro. Both have new batteries, so that's not an issue. Please do not suggest I check my battery. My system power settings are correct for both AC power and on battery, so that's not a problem either.
I replaced a Dell XP machine and an older Compaq machine running a Win 7 32 bit upgrade from Vista. Both of the older machines, upon reaching the preset low power settings limits, would open a pop up window on my desktop and alert me to either save my work and shut down or plug in the power cord. It would supersede and open on top of any work windows I had open. Both of the two new machines have no such pop open alert window and my computer often hibernates unexpectedly. Not a crisis, but a real pain when in the middle of work. I know that there are taskbar icon notifications and audible alert tones, but neither is useful for me. I must keep my computer muted when working and my taskbar is set to extreme hi-res with small icons, so you can't really notice the taskbar alert when concentrating on your work. Is the desktop pop open alert window gone forever, just turned off somehow, or what? Some one please advise. Thank you.

A:No Desktop Pop Up Alert for Low Battery

PS - I should explain. When I write "concentrating on my work", I mean that I create complex 3D solid models for expensive tooling and manufacturing businesses in a program which often is on top of the taskbar for screen optimization. They require my full attention and, as the result, the taskbar low power notification is pretty much useless for me. The desktop pop up window, which doesn't now open, worked great.

Just bought the Elitebook Folio 1040 G2 from a Govt Resales shop.One year old, but looks unused - absolutely scratch free, the plastic is still on the touchpad and there's still a plastic NFC tag on it as well. Turned it on at home with the power cord in it, and noticed that the Battery wasn't charging.Looked at and followed all the Support advice:  ie. uninstalled the Microsoft battery software, took out the physical battery, pressed for a minute on the Power button, reinstalled battery, and rebooted, but still no charging. Checked the HP Support Assistant, which ran its test and said the battery was kaput and needed replacing. Two questions: 1) Is there any other solution?   2) Is this a common problem?  If so, then what the heck HP? I spent about five hours trying various permutations of the above.  That included having to buy a Torx T8 screwdriver and then having to remove 17 screws to take off just to remove the battery (11 to take off the back and 6 to take out the battery). The laptop is probably just out of warranty, but even so, the battery dying after one year of probably light use, with the resultant impost of an expensive new battery seems nuts, as does 17 screws to remove the battery.   Maybe I've just got a Friday model, but even so, the number of screws for the battery seems design madness.

Hi guys, i need sone help with my battery....
I left my laptop on hibernation mode for 3 moths because i had to travel and i forgot to shut it down...
When I returned and used it again the battery said that is 0% connected and charging, but it isnt charging actually.
I try a few things I saw on youtube like:
Uninstalling the baterry drivers and turn it on again.
Unplugging the battery and plug it again.
Freezing the battery for 1 one covered in a plastic bag.
Nothing has worked yet and i dont want to buy a new one because i am sure i can save it .
My laptop is hp-dv6 and I am running windows 7.
I hope you can help me....thanks.

A:Dead battery mu06 hp

I would imagine that the battery is really dead. The firmware inside it does not like it going that flat.
The only thing I can think of is to keep trying it unplugging and re-plugging and hope to force enough charge to wake up the firmware, but I wouldn't bet on it.
Freezing will actually do it more harm than good - that trick only works for disks where the bearings have different expansion rates.

i bought a dell E1505 laptop about 1 year and 2 months ago. i used to get good battery life and now my battery lasts about 20 minutes if i get lucky. i know that batteries degrade over time due to the half life, but does it occur that quickly? does not seem right that i have to buy a battery that costs over $100 every year. does anyone else have this problem? are there any solutions to this? thanks

A:Dead Dell Battery

Yes, it happens. It depends on the battery, and whether you cycle it from full to dead often or not. The e1505 is also a budget model that eats battery life. If you want battery life, I would suggest that you get get an ultralight, not a low-end dell. =/

Sometimes freezing the battery will help... but make sure it's in a sealed bag with no moisture if you try it. You don't want to short it.

Hi all,

I have never had to replace a UPS system before. I was just wondering can a battery actually be replaced or is it just the done thing to go and purchase a new UPS system?

Any replies here will be greatly received.


A:UPS Battery dead - APC UPS 1000

I've replaced them before. Depending on what you paid for the unit, it may be more cost effective to buy a new one. I took mine into a Batteries Plus type of a place, and they even installed it for me My APC UPS 650 was around $35 I think.

If it's still under warranty, APC will ship you a new unit, and you just put that one back in the box and return it to them. I did that a few years ago as well..not sure what their policy is currently.
