Hello I have a client with a Sony VAIO Model VGN-AR870EA

All of the suddent started showing "No battery is detected"
on the status bar.

Is is Hardware or it could be software related?

Any Ideas?

It could be either one.

- Try taking out the battery and putting it back in.
- Update all the drivers

While the battery is out of the laptop press and hold the power button for 20 sec's.
Please see my article here on EE about laptop batterys.

you can test what hâppens with a new - or identical battery; if you have one around
or test this battery on another similar laptop
