I just bought a new battery recently because the one I had was completely dead, but now every time I try rebooting I get "0190 critical low battery error".
I've already updated the BIOS and I'm seeing no other results on Google to try to fix this. The only way I can boot up my laptop without getting that error is if I have the charger plugged in, but if it's not then I'll keep getting that error over and over.
Any ideas on how to fix this?

Sorry you're having difficulty. Is the new battery a genuine Lenovo part?

Maybe it's a faulty battery. There are numerous reports about non-genuine Lenovo batteries being built with substandard or even dangerous components. Personally, I never use anything but genuine batteries in any of my ThinkPads. They are more expensive, but I've never been disappointed.
Do you have access to another known-good battery to test? Maybe a friend or colleague?
