Battery alert message

Q: Battery alert message

Failed the battery test and now it will not let me use my computer ! What to do

Preferred Solution: Battery alert message

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.)

 My G700 has had this issue recognizing its own OEM battery since I got it, and there is a long drawn out way of trying to resolve this, but the core problem I believe is that when the battery is Fully Drained it can't Self Identify as an OEM battery, so the laptop won't charge it.  Without charge, it will never get out of this state. Problem:  Battery not recognized correctly as OEM, so won't chargeFix:  Charge battery at least a little bit Yes, I know it won't charge, so how do you perform fix? Plug into power and take battery in and out 5-10 times, leave battery in and remove and replug power cord in side of laptop 5-10 times.  Then leave for 15 minutes, then boot normally. Battery will now be recognized!  Why because you managed to get just enough juice in there while trying to identify the battery 10x or so, for the battery to be able to successfully identify itself when you did start it up. This is a HACK fix, but way better than uninstalling, reinstalling power software, BIOS software and device drivers a number of times (which does not work all that well, I have found). Hope this helps you, let me know! OHHH, and keep your battery charged at least a little to prevent this from happening, and turn power off when not using.  I am not sure if this is just some faulty batteries or all batteries, let me know if other batteries behave better than mine. Best,Mark Eckdahl

About a year ago, I replaced the internal battery on my X240 running Windows 10.  For six or seven months, all went well.  Then, from time to time, I started seeing this message: What's maddening is that it doesn't happen all the time.  If the battery had developed a fault, I would expect to see this message every time I started the machine up, but it happens about 30% of the time--and exactly when varies as well.  It can be just after boot time, or it can appear after an hour or so.  On those occasions when it happens, shutting down and restarting the machine sometimes (but not always) fixes the issue.  I've  replaced the external battery (Battery 2) and never encountered this problem with that battery.  The whole thing is particularly annoying because I prefer the 3-cell external battery for size reasons. Before I go purchase yet another internal battery, does anyone have any suggestions?

Hello. Recently, everytime i started my laptop, i've been receving a message stating "The system has detected the storage capacity of the battery below to be very low. For optimal performance, this battery may need to be replaced.Primary (Internal) battery (601)."In fact, i noticed the laptop is descharging way faster than when i bought it three years ago.Searching on the Net, though, i've read about people saying that, in this case, the battery to be replaced is not the internal one but the removable one.I'd like to ask what battery is actually the one to be replaced.Thanks for the attention. Gialdof P.S. sorry for bad English

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.

Recently I checked the charging status and it said 3% plugged in, not charging. I tried restarting multiple times and looked for solutions and nothing works. Also, before startup a battery alert pops up saying: HP Battery AlertThe system has detected the storage capacity of the battery stated below to be very low.For optimal performance, this battery may need to be replaced.Primary (internal) Battery (601)ENTER - Continue Startup I tried updating the BIOS and tried using HP Support Assistant to check the Battery Status but when I do it, it says the status of the battery is unknown. I assume this is because my AC is plugged in. But I cannot remove it because my battery is at 3% and will shut down immediately once I remove the AC.I guess at this point I just want to know if I should buy a new battery and replace the current one.

my Yoga notebook failed to start due to a critical low battery, assuming the battery was dead. Ordered a new battery and installed it, worked fine, however it showed up as plugged in, not charging. Ran the energy management and it showed the battery level in whcih was level, status of battery was showing good. i have done pretrty much everything possible, mains off, unplugged battery, held power button 30 sec, played with power options, etc. The only thing i cannot do is update the bios as it needs the battery and now its dead flat and wont boot up unless a disconnect the battery. From exhausting every options available i am starting to think its the chaging circuit on the board that is faulty and noting to do with the battery. The notebook is almost 3 years old and worked like a rock until now. Has anybody else experianced this issue, any feedback will be appreciated.

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

Hi everyone, So, yesterday I started up my computer and the fan was running unusually high and then shut off immediately.  I plugged my charger into my notebook and then started it up only to find the Primary (internal) Battery (601) message popping up.  This laptop is just over a year old so I searched up on HP forums and found the fix where you uninstall the 'ACPI - Compliant Control Method Battery', turn off your laptop, unplug the charger and charge it into a wall outlet, and then starting up your computer.  I repeated that process twice and then my battery worked again.  I ran a diagnostic test and it showed that my battery was still at 90% capacity.  All seemed well so I went to sleep, only to find that the same problem occured when I woke up and tried to turn on my computer - wouldn't start, alert message, uninstalled the driver twice and then it finally worked, and my battery is holding its charge now.   Does anyone have any suggestions or input that might be helpful? Thank you.

First of all: I know that I have been having a problem with my HP Laptop Battery, and with its cooling Fan.
However, I am now wondering what detected this error below as long as it was shown even before the notification saying 'the press 'ESC' key for Start-up menu.' Thus, if the BIOS detected that there was a problem with the HP Battery storage', then this error should have been listed after 'press 'ESC' key for Start-up menu.' was passed.

'HP Battery Alert:
The system has detected the storage capacity of the battery stated below to be very low. For optimal performance, this battery may need to be replaced.'
That alert lasted about 15 seconds, and then the 'press 'press 'ESC' key for Start-up menu.' is shown.

Next: This is error below showed me::
'The system didn't detect that a cooling fan is operating correctly'

I know that BIOS detected that a problem with 'Cooling Fan' since the Alert of error was shown after passing 'press 'ESC' key for Start-up menu.'
Any comments would be highly appreciated

A:'Battery Alert' appears before the 'press 'ESC' key for Start-up menu'

I have no clue what you mean by start up menu. But that message is from the BIOS.

My email program is Eudora and my computer runs Windows XP Pro. The computer works fine, but every few days I get an email delivered and it causes a Security Alert Message. The message says in so many words:
Information you exchange with this site cannot be viewed or changed by others...etc., etc...and gives me an option asking if I want to proceed. Have tried to delete it and/or approve it, but Eudora stays frozen and I have to then do an Alt/Control/Delete in order to close down the program.

Today I restarted the computer in Safe Mode and was able to delete this Security Alert Message and that took care of the problem.
But, there should be some appropriate way in which I can stop this from happening. I have been running Mozilla/Firefox instead of Internet Explorer 7 but even when I had IE7 installed, still had that problem every now and then.
Help...is there something I can do to avoid this from happening again?
Thanking you guys and/or gals in advance for your requested advice and help!


I have removed your Phone # and Email address so that you will not get spammed,
You should upgrade to IE8 for security reasons.
However, your browser and your Email program, Eudora, do not have anything to do with each other.
Make sure you have a good Anti-Virus program that scans Emails before they are downloaded.

Hello, I have been trying to use combofix to clean a computer that I am working on. I have never had a problem with this program till today. When I try to run the program, I get an alert saying, "!! ALERT !! It is NOT SAFE to continue!The contents of the ComboFix package has been compromised.Please download a fresh copy from:http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/combofix/how-to-use-combofixNote: You may be infected with a file patching virus (Virut)"I am not sure what to make of this. I have downloaded fresh copies of the program as it has suggested but, keep getting the same error. I have removed all antivirus and antispyware programs, cleared temp files, turned off Windows Restore, deleted cookies and temp internet files, ran through and uninstalled any programs that were not needed or spyware applications, and I am running in safe mode. Any suggestions?Thanks,

I have been struggling with a number of malware related problems on my PC as of late, the most recent of which being an error message that reads:

Virus Alert!
'Program' Can't Be Started

Following this are two lines about running what is likely a fake antivirus scan program, according to what I have read. I have used MBAM and it has alleviated some of my other problems, but this new one popped up immedietely after I eliminated some others. Any help I can get would be wonderful.

This is on a PC running Windows XP if that helps at all.

Additionally, I have long suffered from annoying redirected links from Google and would appreciate any help in this category that I can get. Thanks very much!

A:Virus Alert! Message

Hello,it appears you have this infection.Please follow our Removal Guide here Remove AntiVira Av (Uninstall Guide) .You will move to the Automated Removal InstructionsAfter you completed that, post your scan log here,let me know how things are.The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply. Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows MBAM's database version and your operating system.

I deleted an earlier identical question that included the actual address numbers. Each letter has a specific number value.

An alert message came up on my imac saying " IP configuration abc.ade.a.aff is in use by 90:21:55:00:db:c0.DHCP server abc.ade.a.a ".

MY ethernet IP address is abc.ade.a.acf I am not sure if my computer IP address is the same as the ethernet address.
Is this alert a security warning? Any help would be greatly appreciated. TIA

A:Message from SYSTEM to ALERT (HJT Log)

Those pop ups appear to be coming through Windows Messenger Service. Although the name of the service is similar, Messenger Service in Windows XP is not related to instant messaging programs such as Windows Messenger and MSN Messenger.

Download Shoot The Messenger

The button near the bottom of it's window will allow you to set the service to to 'disabled'.

If, for any reason, you should ever choose to re-enable the Windows Messenger Service, simply re-run ShootTheMessenger and re-set the service to 'running'.

Some malware is using this exploit, though I see nothing active in the HijackThis log.


Perform an online scan with Internet Explorer with Panda ActiveScan Click on located at the bottom of the page.
A "pop up" window will appear. * Please ensure that your pop up blocker doesn't block it *

hi i keep getting these messages poping up and dont no what to do . i use spybolt seek and destroy , add aware and agv anti viras but they still keep popping up about every 30 seconds can any one help ?

A:message from systerm alert

First, ignore these popups because they are malware. You go to the sites for a free registry scan, etc., and they find all sorts of non-existent problems and then request you pay to have these removed.I would suggest you post a HiJackThis! log in the log forum so our volunteer team of experts can help you get rid of whatever is causing these. Instructions are here:http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/How...s_Log-t956.htmlBegin your post with a link to this post, so the team member has some hint about what your problem is. Please be patient, because logs are taken on a first in first out basis.Regards,John

I keep getting a pop up message that says my registry has been changed. It continues to give me an alert " reg-1388" and then directs me to a site called "clean-xp." Can anyone tell me what this is and how to correct this problem. I am at a loss of ideas. I've goggled it and still nothing that makes any sense to me.

Please help.


A:message alert "reg-3328"

This is probably caused by spyware.Any time a pop-up happens it is probably spyware unless it is a Windows Error message.See this article:Taking out the TrashShow all Files & Foldershttp://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/ind...showtutorial=62Try these free tools.Trendmicro (free virus scan only)http://housecall.trendmicro.com/Adware SE (update after installing)http://www.lavasoftusa.com/software/adaware/Spybot S&D (update after installing)http://www.download.com/Spybot-Search-Dest...4-10122137.html

I am running XP Home SP2 and for the past few days, I have been having a message poping up very regularly on the notification area of the system tray (bottom right) that says :
"System Alert !
System has detected a number of active spyware applications that may impact the performance of your computer"
The message is located on a flashing red shield icon. When I click on the message, Internet Explorer starts up on the Virus Protect Pro web site (www.virusprotectpro.com/?aff=1003) and suggests I acquire and download the product.
The online Symantec vulnerability/virus detection reveals no spyware/adware/virus. Neither does BitDefender Online. Windows Defender, A Squared, Spyware S&D, AdAware SE are equally unsuccessful in detecting anything unusual.
I have run the 5 steps and here are the results.
Thanks for your kind help,
