Hi Randy,


I am sorry I haven't replied sooner but I have been away for the weekend. I am afraid there has been no change. I have downloaded Samsung Battery Manager with the new battery installed & then restarted the computer but I am still getting the "Easy Display Manager - Battery Warning" which says the following -


"Battery Life Time in current state is not longer.


Because you may loose your data during using, please replace to new battery (honest goods)


Tip> Battery Pack is Consumerable device.


This pack is not working correctly or life time is not longer,


please use to replace to new battery (honest goods)"


The battery I purchased was from Amazon and is not a Samsung battery, but the computer works fine apart from the above warning..Can you advise any further please.


Tom

I have uninstalled Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery as you suggested, but it has not resolved the problem.

Expert:  *ElectronicsTech replied 3 years ago.
I am sorry about that. Unfortunately those are the only options available. I have had this same problem on a few other computers that just willl not accept the generic(off brand) battery. Some will only accept the OEM battery.
