There are reported incidents where upon purchasing a new Laptop Battery, you go to plug it in and charge for the first time but nothing happens. You might see the symbol in the bottom right corner that shows that the battery is not detected or it is plugged in but not charging. You might leave the battery charging for some time but the battery power indicator might not go up. These issues can be fixed with a couple of simple steps.
In order for the battery to be detected a static discharge is sometimes required. To do this, remove the HP Laptop Battery and laptop charger from the machine. Press and hold the laptop on/off button for 30 seconds. Replace the battery and laptop charger and turn the laptop on. Hopefully this will reset the software to allow the battery to be detected.
Another alternative would be to update your BIOS software. This can be found on the official website of your laptop manufacturer. These two simple fixes may allow the HP G60 Laptop Battery to be correctly identified by the laptop and save you having to return to the supplier. For more FAQ’s visit Laptop Power UK today.
