HP Pavilion zd8000 incorrect battery
Posted on 2007-03-19
I have a Pavilion HP zd8000 laptop. All ok so far except i have always kept it plugged in at the office and the battery holds no charge anymore... So much so, that the last time i checked - couple of weeks ago - it only stayed alive for 30 secs.
So today, i power down, and decide to clean the keyboard with antistatic spray stuff...
Power on again, and i get the following error at BIOS level:
Warning. The system has detected an incorrect battery for this unit. Using the wrong battery will cause you to experience poor system performance and a possible system shutdown. System Halted. To avoid further issue, please install the correct battery immediately and restart
Now im hoping that the error is not related to me spraying the keyboard. The laptop was turned off at the time. The battery was never changed.
any ideas? I cant work without it.. Im stuck!
