Govan1x 14:04 06 May 2017 Probably the main Battery. It may not need replacing so wait till you get some more answers to your question You could try removing the power cord and the battery and holding in the start button for 50 seconds then installing the the battery and power cord again. That will get rid of any static and maybe also remove the warning. Worth a try till someone can give you better information. gazza1379 14:14 06 May 2017 Tried that and still get the warning message plus laptop stays on for around 30 seconds then turns its self off every time so pretty certain the battery has gone This thread is now locked and can not be replied to.
