Battery does not charge after rescue & recovery

2008-04-06, 15:50 PM
Hi,

Yesterday I set up my computer fresh from the preload on the harddrive due to slowness, instabilities, inability to use VPN etc. After the reinstallation of OS and securiy updates, my battery does not charge anymore. The battery indicator on the front panel keeps blinking, and the Lenovo message center reports that irrepairable damage has been done to the battery and that it must be replaced.

My battery is not among the recalls by Lenovo.

Any idea if there's any option but buying a new battery? It just does not seem right that the battery is unusable after new OS setup.
Cheers, Thorbjorn

Hi Andy,

Thanks a lot for your help, I checked and found that my battery is eligible for replacement.

Aus Oslo, alles Gute nach Düsseldorf!
