Preferred Solution: Battery J1KND check - genuine or not?

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.)

If it was purchased from Dell, it's genuine. Anywhere else: ask the seller.

I Purchased a Dell N5050 J1KND Battery . I needed to verify that is that battery Genuine Dell Inc. manufactured/marketed or Just a Replica!? Its Part no. is 4YRJH. I Would be highly Grateful to you if you could please verify it for me. Please resolve and reply ASAP. Thank You

A:I Purchased a Dell N5050 J1KND Battery . I needed to verify that is that battery Genuine Dell Inc. manufactured?

This is  not genuine.  The 9C5 would mean the battery was manufactured in March, 2009.  And Dell's labels don't have the date posted as 2017/07/27.

Hey @EnigmaDimirti, Welcome to the forums. I'm here to help. I would strongly suggest Testing and Calibrating the Battery. Should that not solve the issue, I would suggest calling in for support to see about replacing the battery, as it should not be displaying "no battery is pluged in" when you run a battery check. Please use the following http://www.hp.com/contacthp and create a case for your issue and contact HP. If you live outside the US/Canada, please click the link below to get the contact information for your region.http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/ww-phone-assist.html If this helps, please hit that Thumbs Up, and Accept as Solution. Cheers,TechSurge.

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.

Hi,

I recently bought a new computer from someone who builds custom computers, in the excitement of getting it I forgot to check if the windows was genuine but I did ask if it came with the installation disc and he said it was in the box, upon getting home I opened the box to find a CD with WLDR written on it, at first I didn't know why it said that but when I put the disc into the computer there was one folder on the CD called Windows Loader, I know that a windows loader is for activating non genuine copy's of windows however when I went to the Microsoft website and ran the genuine checking tool it said it was genuine. Is it really genuine or does a windows loader fix the genuine check?

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 SevenForum Viewers/Members.

Today im am going to cover something really simple, but yet very helpful. If you have bought a laptop or desktop second hand, or you have bought windows but would like to check if it is genuine this is how.

During this tutorial we are going to be using "Elevated Command Prompt".
Basically CMD run as an Administrator. A Full tutorial can be found here:
Elevated Command Prompt

Here we go!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Firstly Open CMD In Elevated mode:





~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Now we should see Command Prompt Open.

Next we are going to insert this code:

I have also attached a .txt Document with the code in.


Code:
slmgr -xpr
slmgr -dli
slmgr -dlv
Copy this form here, go into Command Prompt, Right Click and Paste.



After you have done this Hit Enter.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Now we should see 2 boxes pop up, This Is the Information we want.

You will now be able to tell if your windows is genuine.

A:Check If Your Windows Is Activated And Genuine!

All very well - but doing it this way will miss many non-genuine flags, and the install could very easily be counterfeit, all your tests results being invalidated by a hacker's Activation Exploit.

The only way to get close to 100% reliability is
1) Know the source of your Key/Package - is it reliable?
2) If there's the slightest chance of the source being other than 100% reliable, run an MGADiag report, and post the results in his forum for an expert to analyse.
We will normally catch better than 80% of counterfeits which your tests above wouldn't find.

I don't know where to start. But here is the situation. Today I called 4-5 PC hardware store to compare the price of 1 TB Seagate Barracuda. 4 out of 5 offered me U$86. Only one of them have the cheapest price, which was U$75. So I just walked in and bought it. Later I was curious what makes this store has significantly lower price. I called a friend who works on other store (which also among 4 stores). She said it is impossible to price it at U$75. And suspecting that I was cheated with refurbished HDD..! Is that it?
After some googling It was explained that it is not refurbished as the label has rounded corner cut. Other said to run seatools, I haven't done it yet.

Does anyone know the simplest way to sort this out?

A:How to Check Genuine against Refurbished Seagate HDD

From past experience, Seagate and Western Digital sell their refurbished hard drives as "White Label" drives. They are called such because the label on the drive is solid white with plain black lettering and looks like a cheap, generic label. Also, when the Seagate drive is plugged in it won't show up as a Barracuda or Free Agent. It will show up as either S1000xxxx or SEA1000xxxx. The S or SEA stands for Seagate (obviously) and the 1000 would be 1000 Gigabytes (or 1 Terabyte.) The last few random numbers are an internal code for a specific production run. A Western Digital uses a similar coding: WD0500xxxx for a refurbished 500GB or WD1000xxxx for a 1TB

It's possible for a store to get a really good deal on merchandise that knocks a lot of money off the usual retail price. If a store buyer is knowledgeable and has good contacts with the supplier, the buyer can find out about production runs that are called "seconds". A cosmetic defect that has no affect on product reliability could knock the price down considerably. Example: a label inside a run of shirts is sewn on upside down. Thousands of shirts are affected. Rather than re-sew all those labels the manufacturer decides to sell those regularly priced $50 shirts (that only cost $10 to manufacture) for $20. Then the store buyer marks them up to $40. Everybody makes a profit and the customer gets a great deal. Same concept could apply to that hard drive for U$75.

Code not available. The validation code could not be obtained. This may be due to technical difficulties, or you may be running an unsupported operating system. Please close this window and attempt the validation process again, or use the back button in your web browser to return to the download details page.[Error code: 0x80072efd]

So next I go to this page:

http://www.microsoft.com/genuine/diag/RunDiags.aspx?displaylang=en

Genuine Microsoft Software Diagnostic Results

Passed Active scripting allowed
Passed Display images enabled
Passed Computer time and date correct
Passed Cookies enabled
Failed genuine Microsoft software plug-ins are installed and loaded
Failed genuine Microsoft software plug-ins connect with Microsoft validation servers
I downloaded
OGAPluginInstall.exe &
WGAPluginInstall.exe

I ran them both and they both said they are install and updated so I'm lost.. please help

I'm a student and I bought this laptop just like 7 months before and I travelled abroad to continue my studies. Because of this problem I couldn't even concentrate! I need to plug in my charger whenever I need to use my lap, If I disconnect my charger, it shuts down!  All my money I spent in this laptop is a waste, I guess! I'm really disappointed!

Hi,
I've had a Studio 1749 since 2010 and I still love it, but the original battery now no longer holds its charge. Dell don't seem to sell suitable batteries any more for this model, so I bought on on eBay, new and supposedly genuine. But before I insert it, how can I check? I've compared photos online and it looks ok, but would like to be more sure. I'm aware that the battery will have been produced years ago, as Dell probably stopped making them a while ago.
Thanks!

Hi all

I've just recently bought a Win7 Pro RETAIL; used from eBay. The seller has good feedback, and I chatted a fair amount with him through eBay messages. I have every reason to trust him, but in spite of that I would still like to check and be 100% sure that what I have is genuine and available for installation (not in use on another PC).

Does anyone have any tips as to how I can go about this? Can I go to MS direct to check (I seem to remember reading that I can't, but am not totally sure)? Any other ways...

Please note that for various reasons I won't bore you all with, I won't be able to actually use and install the OS for at least a couple of weeks....

Many thanks

Max

A:Just bought Win7 Pro RETAIL - how to check it is genuine and not in use?

If this is a retail version and not OEM you should be able to download an iso file by inputting your key at the below page.
 
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows7
 
If the page accepts your key then you have a genuine Windows 7 key but it still does not tell you if it has been in use. You can call Microsoft Support but according to the below page they may not know until you try to activate.

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!
