So I bought one of these 3rd party 6 cell batteries, and it works great, except that the S10 thinks it's being charged while the 6 cell battery is being used.
I guess it's not a big deal, but has anyone come accross this problem, and found a solution or fix?
Running on the factory installed XP.
Would be nice to know if anyone else is also having this problem?
Solved! Go to Solution.

Actually I figured it out with the help of some of the other s10 forums, if anyone else is having a problem with the S10 recognizing the new battery try this:
1. Shutdown the laptop
2. Remove the A/C adaptor (Plug)
3. Remove battery
4. Hold down the power button for about 30 seconds
5. Wait about 30 seconds more
6. Put the battery back in the laptop
7. Turn on the laptop
Now the laptop should properly recognize the new battery.
Hope this helps others out.
It sure helped me.
My question now is: can someone explain to me what the about instructions do? Why hold down the power button? Why 30 seconds? Why?
Is this some sort of cheat code ?
