Re: Genuine battery notification on T61

Hi farhan,

 

Did you ever find out how to get the notification to go away?

 

Cheers,

Raff

Re: Genuine battery notification on T61

hello, yeah i did get the notification to stop from showing all the time... just disable the "periodically show messages about battery charge capacity" in the Battery maintainance window.. it'll stop showing the notification but that BLACK HAZARD sign won't go away... but atleast its not annoying me by showing the notification all the time...

well i would have replaced my lenovo battery but the problem is that the laptop was at my home and i was out of country for four months.. so i only got to use it for 8 months and the warranty worn out... my warranty expired in may and this problem started in the start of july... so i was really screwed up... so i had to buy a 3rd party battery... btw its written on the battery that its an OEM but there is still this error message that i posted earlier..

Well, if it doesn't work with your Thinkpad, then it's not "compatible".  People should send them back and get a refund.

Re: Genuine battery notification on T61

Well I bought it from a local dealer who deals in IBM/Lenovo and all kinds of laptop batteries. You can find good thirdparty dealers who sell batteries in your region online.


I saw some dealers who were selling the battery for about 50$, and shipped all over the world and their company was in north america.

It is possible to patch the toolbar, so that it does not show the warning. Files:

PWMTR32V.DLL

PWMTR64V.DLL

 

Located around:

C:\Program Files (x86)\ThinkPad\Utilities

 

This is an instruction for a system programmer, and even for those - please use this on your own risk.

If the file is patched improperly, then Explorer will constantly crash until the file is removed or reverted.

 

Power Manager version 3.05:

For 64-bit version (PWMTR64V.DLL), locate the sequence of bytes:

74 0D BF 09 00 00 00

And replace with:

EB 0D BF 09 00 00 00

 

Power Manager version 3.25 (They have changed a few things.):

PWMTR64V.DLL (64-bit version):

Locate:

74 0B 8D 7A 08 45 33 C0

Replace with:

EB 0B 8D 7A 08 45 33 C0

 

Power Manager 3.05 and 3.25:

 

For 32-bit version (PWMTR32V.DLL), locate the sequence of bytes:

74 0A BD 09 00 00 00

And replace with:

EB 0A BD 09 00 00 00

 

I don't know if there are side effects that affect a battery time calculation or power regulation.

 

Lenovo: please add a check box "Do not show a warning sign again". Just because of the warning people most probably will remove the software and not use it, rather than buying a genuine battery.

I'm wondering if this solution can be used on a ThinkPad T500 as well.  The file in question is called PWRMGRTR.DLL, but it doesn't contain either of the hex strings you mentioned for the T61.


Thanks!
