New battery not charging t530

I own a t530 laptop, which I got 4~ years ago. 

 

My battery stopped charging remaining at 0% but not charging, I figured the battery had simply broke so I bought a new one. 

https://www.24.se/datortillbehor/laptoptillbehor/laptop-batterier/ibm-lenovo-batterier/batteri-lenov...

 

The website is in Swedish, but you can see that it is stated that the battery is supposed to work with the t530 series. (just use ctrl + f ;P

 

However when plugging the new battery in and starting the latop I am greeted with "System does not support battery"

I tried powering the laptop off > removing the battery > turn laptop on > uninstall battery drivers > turn off > plug in battery > power on

 

I suppose it should be noted that I upgraded from Windows 7 to 10, windows 7 was what was installed when it was shipped, but I do not think the OS should impact?

Hello and welcome

That battery on the photo seems not Lenovo genuine. Provide, please, the battery' label photo with quality enough to recognize the symbols. Also, if the OS is win7 and Lenovo Power Manager application is installed, show the battery features.

Re: New battery not charging t530

It might be that the motherboard charging circuit has died, but it is very common for non-Lenovo batteries simply not to work.  There is no way to be sure.

Re: New battery not charging t530

My phone's camera is pretty **bleep**.

 

"Replace 42T4733, 42T4235, 42T4731

Li-ion 10.8V 440mAh"

 

Is that what you meant?

Re: New battery not charging t530

Richard,

have a look at the battery' label on the photo above. No doubt, it's printed on the plastic tape and glued to the battery while Lenovo genuine battery has label symbols printed on the battery case directly. Only sticker with a bar-code is glued.
Even this photo shows another prooves - it's not a genuine battery.

no.
I can write "I'm a G.t". Will you believe me? The seller or a fake battery manufacturer can write "Lenovo original". will you believe them?

Moreover, the batteries with FRU 42T4733 and 42T4735 are for ThinkPad L510, SL410, SL510, not for T530.

No doubt, it's not a Lenovo genuine battery and not compatible with T530. It's a fake.
