Preferred Solution: X250 How I can disable the internal battery?

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.)


Hi I bought a 2nd hand x250 online and when i reaached home i noticed battery 1 was no available for use. I contacted the seller and he said that it did not come with one. So it just has an extended external battery that came with it. I am confused because i have another model when has one internal and i bought an external (extended) battery so i have two. I had no idea that some models do NOT have an internal battery. Can i buy one and fit an internal battery myself or are some models not compatible with an internal battery?

 Hello everyone, I just noticed that on my x250 on windows 10 there is a written in the battery section with written "battery 2 absent", the fact is that I already have an external battery, you can have an external and an internal? Where can I get a new internal battery?

Hello! I have an x250 notebook.Capacity of my internal battery flows down. Some time i opened lenovo power manager and checked battery. Internal battery is full charged with 12,18V, but external battery is full charged with 12.68V.It is very strange for me. As i know there is no li-ion battery with <4.2V full charge.I recalibrated the battery, no changes.Ok, It is possible that one li-ion battery has lower voltage then other two ones. I checked the voltage - 4.07. 4.07, 4.05 it is great result!Batteries are not charged fully, so capacity is lower then it should be. I found battery FW update for some lenovo notebooks, but i didn't find it for x250.Can you help me?

Hello!  I am seeking the sage wisdom of veteran thinkpad owners for an upcoming purchase.  I am considering an x250 (i5, 256 ssd, 8gb, 1080P ips non touch, with nothing but a fresh install of Windows 10 pro 64 bit and MS office pro plus) to use for the next two years while I complete a degree(mostly paper writing, web browsing, netflix/youtube etc..nothing heavy). I prioritize a good keyboard, good battery life, light weight(under 3lbs), durability, and saving money if possible.  With that said, I can't deal with laggy performance and lackluster battery life. I "could" buy a new laptop, but am having a hard time justifying spending that much since my usage is so light.  My previous laptop was a macbook air and it served me well, but the keyboard never really impressed me. I sold it, bought a nice Chromebook(12.5 inch screen) and pocketed the change. I have not had a "real" computer for a few years now and it's time.  What say you? 1) Will the above spec x250 provide me with decent performance/battery life for the next two years?1a) What kind of battery life can I expect with this setup and a flush battery?  2) Any other recomendations? I really like the X1 carbon, but the price is tough to swallow with all the issues I am seeing. However, that larger screen sure would be nice on the eyes. 3) Though I would prefer to not get another macbook, with the rumored update to the macbook air right around the corner said to be arou...

Hi, I just bought a X250 today. I received it with Windows 7 Pro, and the first thing I did was upgrade it to Windows 10. After an hour of use, I noticed that the battery was draining really fast. I clicked in the battery icon on the system tray and noticed that it says: Battery 1: This battery is not available for useBattery 2: 40% (or whatever) I opened Device Manager and I see two devices listed under the "batteries" section, both of them called "Battery with Microsoft ACPI-compliant control method" (translating from Spanish, which is my system language, so it might not be exactly like this). I guess this means that the system indeed detects that there are two batteries, so it looks like a software problem. I right clicked on both of them and selected "uninstall", and then went to action > look for hardware changes, so that should refresh the driver. After doing that, the "battery 1: this battery is not available" message still appears. I also noticed that there was a power manager application from Lenovo which is not compatible with Windows 10. After upgrading, Windows notified me that this app had been removed and I don't see a W10 equivalent on the support downloads section of the Lenovo website. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks! Pau

A:X250 Battery 1 "is not available for use"

I also tried unplugging the second battery (the removable one). Immediately after unplugging it, the computer shuts down. If I turn it on without the second battery and plugged into the wall outlet, the icon in the lower right corner (system tray) says "no battery found"; however, on device manager I still can see one battery appearing. If I click on "properties" in device manager, it says that the device is working correctly, and there is no sign of any error log or crash report inside the battery properties in device manager.  I tried updating the BIOS and resetting BIOS to defaults, and it makes no difference. I also tried running Ubuntu from a USB stick ("try" option) and it only detects the second battery, not the integrated one.  I guess it must be a hardware problem.

A:X250 removable battery not recognized

Hi durieu,
Welcome to Lenovo Forums!
Can you please perform the below troubleshooting steps and confirm with the same.
1) Please confirm that you are using an original Lenovo battery.  It is possible that 3rd party battery firmware may be     different / incompatible.
2) Clear CMOS values - shut the system down, unplug AC and remove battery.  Press and hold power button                  several times for several seconds each time.   Then re-install battery and AC and restart and see if battery now             reports.
3) Uninstall / Reinstall the latest power manager version.
4) Check available BIOS updates or tips on support site for battery firmware updates.
Please find the support site link to get the latest drivers for your laptop.
To get the drivers for your laptop, click on Drivers and software in the product support page and under the option component select the latest version of driver which you want to update with the help of drop down option.
Please let me know whether the above steps helped you.
Thank you, have a good day.

Hello. Is there any reason Battery #1 (Internal battery) lists as Not Present? I've just updated to the latest BIOS for this laptop. I have installed the Lenovo Power Manager v 6.68.8 and under that application it only lists the removable battery. I've also checked settings in the BIOS to see if it can be turned on and I did not see anything listed that would let me makes changes to the Internal battery. Before this laptop I used a Lenovo X240 laptop and on that laptop it would list both Internal and Removable batteries in the Lenovo Power Manager application.

So i have a X250 with both internal and external batteries, i recentley upgraded the bios to version 1.27 and reinstalled my machine from scratch. This is when i noticed that it uses the internal battery first, and then immidiately powers off instead of using the external one. I haven't found anywhere in the bios that i can set the priority of the batteries but shouldn't it be the other way around by default?  Any help is greatly appreciated

A:Lenovo ThinkPad X250 Battery Priority

I switched batteries a minute ago an now it uses the external one first, and refuses to use my 45N1777 battery alltogether. Would a bios-update really make my machine unable to use that particular battery? Seems odd in my mind.

Hoping this problem will be noticed by more people, the original post on this issue came from:https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Linux-Discussion/T470-Linux-Power-Bridge-wrong-discharge-order/td-p/365...https://www.reddit.com/r/thinkpad/comments/63odjr/t470_battery_order_question_internal_discharges/ Brief description: same problem with OS including Win 10, Ubuntu 16.04, Gentoo etc. The internal battery always gets discharged first regardless its remaining power, which is generally harmless but seems not so good for the internal battery life. With my own T470 machine, updated with the latest 1.29 BIOS, this problem remains. According to searching results online, this little bug came with early versions of X's and T' including T460. PS: this issue had been successfully fixed with T460 via BIOS update 1.26, hoping it would be fixed with T470 sooner or later. Best regards.

Hi everyone, Title says it all, I know this topic of discharging internal battery first has been brought up a lot, and that the reason behind it is this: The T470s are designed to drain the battery with least wear first so as to degrade both batteries equally and prolong the laptop's overall battery life. However, as I'm using a new 61++ battery, clearly somethig is going wrong somewhere as the year old internal battery cannot be in better condition than the brand new external.https://gyazo.com/6c12f3f40514599d04d852a8589189ab Any ideas? Thanks!

After a round of Windows updates, I went to turn on my laptop and recieved the "Primary internal battery (601)" error.  After this screen, however, Windows would not load.  I have tried taking the battery out and 'draining the charge',  and starting up the computer plugged directly to AC with no battery.  Windows still does not load.  The start-up test in the diagnostics menu said the battery needed calibration, however when I go to run the battery test, it gets to "waiting for battery to charge" and exits out of the test without giving me any results at all.  Currently when turning on the computer I no longer get the "primary internal battery" error, it just goes directly to a black screen with blinking cursor.  Any help is appreciated, I'm completely at a loss here!

Hello. The newest Realtek driver for the Inspiron 3521 with Windows 7 is the version. That one is known to be buggy regarding the audio jack. My advice is to "roll back" to the previous driver -- the version.

Right click on "Realtek High Definition Audio" to open the context menu.4. Click Properties.5. Click the Driver tab at the top.6. Click Rollback Driver.

But before you uninstall, disable the facility in the device manager. I am 100% certain it will cause no problems. If it goes wrong, it is easy to re-enable, If there are no apparent problems, then I would suggest you uninstall the software.

Just recently I disabled my internal mic in favor of an external mic. I tried to disable it the normal way but every time I kept disabling it, it would re-enable. I went to the administrator section to disable the internal mic that way and it worked, but it worked a little too well. Now when I go into my sound menu, it says no audio devices are installed. I can't simply right click and show disabled devices to re-enable it. I know this trick and it's not helping me. No devices are showing up either way. Now that I've done this, my external mic is not even working. Usually I can figure these types of things out on my own but this one is a whole different story. Please help!

A:Can't re-enable internal mic after disable

Turns out I actually got it working. By typing "internal" in the start menu search box, there is an option to find and fix problems. Luckily, it recognized shutting off your internal mic as a problem and it fixed it.

For a few months now, my computer has started overheating for some reason (even though I haven't done anything unusual that could cause it). Whenever this happens, it makes this ear-shattering, shrieking, continuous "BEEEEEP" noise (internally, not from the speakers) for about 15-30 minutes. This cycles on and off about once an hour. Is there ANY way I can disable this, other than the obvious answer of stopping the overheating problem? I'm broke at the moment so any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I read all the suggestions for this question from an earlier time it was asked. I tried, but I still can not find a way to disable my gateway computer's internal mouse. I went to control panel, hardware, mouse, and found 2 mouses there (not mice!). One is the Logitech one external one connected to my osb drive. The other is the one I tried to disable. I found the driver page, but the disable icon is not working. It is not lit up and nothing happens with a right or left click on it. The screen says that this mouse is working properly. I can not disable it.... Where is the disable key?

I notes that someone installed Synaptics, so I did that, and my computer has speeded way up! (Yay), but there is no change in the place to disable the internal mouse.

A:Can't Disable Gateway Internal Mouse (Despite Trying All on this Site!)

The Synaptics shoudl have added it's own Control Panel, or added to the Mouse properties in the Control Panel and created an icon in the System Tray.

The Gateway site lists both the Synaptics and Elantech drivers for the laptop, which touchpad does the laptop say you have?

Gateway site: http://support.gateway.com/us/en/product/default.aspx?tab=1&modelId=3503

Also according to the manual which is also at the link above you should be able to press FN +F6 to disable the Touchpad, but you must have the correct touchpad drivers installed and the LaunchManager installed for that to work.

It will be somewhere on the motherboard. It's a flat round battery like those in a watch only larger. On some older PCs, the battery is soldered to the motherboard so you may need to take it to a shop to have it replaced if that's the case.

A:internal battery 601

Hi, Just to clarify, the 601 error relates to your notebooks main battery ( not the rtc cell on the system board ). If you're happy with running the machine on mains power full time, there's no issue with that and you can simply remove the battery. If you do want to replace the battery at some time, you can order a new one through HP Parts Store or ( and often less expensive ), just google the full Model No. of your dv7 series notebook including the term battery. Regards, DP-K

Also, would the 'internal battery' still be the battery that is capable of being removed from the laptop? Or does a laptop of two batteries?

I have an Inspiron 15-7568 that seems to beep utterly at random. It beeps anywhere between one and fifty times and no matter how many times it beeps they're spaced exactly evenly and not following any sort of pattern. This occurs both when the system is running Windows as well as when it's closed & asleep.
How can I turn off the internal speaker? The complete lack of pattern suggests to me this is not as some sort of alert/message so I'm just looking to make it shut up.

If the internal battery on my desktop pc is dead
could this cause my pc not to start?
And if so, by replacing it will I be able to start my
pc normally or do I have to do something else?
Reason I'm asking is my pc has power but no splash
screen shows up. The light indicator that shows
activity goes on briefly and the dvd light indicator
turns on briefly. But nothing happens, black screen.


A:Dead Internal Battery

The most common MB battery is a CR-2032 Lithium. Usually found at most Drug stores, WalMart, etc. Arround $2. That would be a cheap test to try first.

But also double check all your other power connections, but it could be the PSU failure , also.

My original battery stopped being detected so I ordered a new battery and the new battery is getting the same message. The battery is internal so I can't just pop it out.

I have received the dreaded 601 error before my start-up process.  I ran the battery check through the operating systems' diagnostics (F2) and it said it would need replaced due to use over time.  I also ran the battery charge check through HP Support Assistant and it said that it was very weak and possibly needed replaced.   How do I replace my internal battery?  The website that HP Support Assistant took me to only had the external batteries available.  

A:Internal Battery Error (601)

Can we have your full model number? I think the error you are seeing refers to the "main", large battery and not the little clock or CMOS battery. Is your system closed so that the battery is not easily removeable? The full model number will point us to the right service manual which will show the part you need and the replacement process. Also need to know what country you live in.  http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=emr_na-c00033108
