Sony Vaio Laptop (VGN-S1XP) - This battery cannot be used in your PC...
Posted on 2007-03-27
Can anyone help out on this one. I have a Sony Vaio VGN-S1XP running Windows XP. Everytime I boot up to the desktop I get a message 'This battery cannot be used on your laptop. Please use only genuine Sony batteries compatible with this computer'.
The only option is to click on OK and then the system goes into Standby mode. I cannot seem to get out of this loop and is therefore unusable.
History: Working fine for a couple of years, replace battery with a new but non-Sony type. Got message as above so bought a second hand genuine Sony battery and still gives same message. I wonder if something needs resetting somewhere?
