descriptionStart up issue related to battery message

more_horiz
When I boot up my computer a screen appears which indicates I have a battery problem. Specifically it says the battery is not a Dell battery and it will not be able to charge properly. I also get this message periodically when working on the computer.

The screen commands showing ask me to configure set up by hitting F2 or press any key to continue with the booting process. After I hit enter all goes fine.

I have the original Dell Battery, I have pulled it and reinstalled it and the battery is charging properly and lasts about 2 hours.

How do I get rid of this boot up problem?

Thanks
Beardog

Hello,

I found this on another website, let's see if it works for you too.

Use the battery until the screen blacks out. Start the laptop with out the AC adaptor, the system will warn you of low battery and press F1. After pressing F1, plug the AC adapter back in and the problem should be solved.
