Thinkpad X201 critical low battery error 0190

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?

Good day.

 

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

 

Regards.

No it's not. Every time I start up my laptop I get "critical low battery error 0190" even though it's fully charge, and the only way to turn it on is if I have the charger plugged in. I've already tried updating the BIOS, but that didn't solve it.

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?

Nope I don't and the only Lenovo battery I had is pretty much dead.
