How to install new laptop battery.

Using HP Support Assistant, my HP G61 110SA laptop battery wouldn't recalibrate so it told me to replace it.  I have now bought a new one but can't find any instructions anywhere on HOW to install it!  Plus, should I fully charge before installation etc..  Any help, advice, info and especially links to instructions would really be appreciated.  I'm using Windows7 64 bit.

 

thanks.

Re: How to install new laptop battery.

Hi:

 

Below is the link to the service manual for your notebook.

 

http://bizsupport2.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c01740724/c01740724.pdf

 

The procedure to remove and replace the battery can be found in chapter 4, page 4-7.

 

Once you install your new battery, I recommend you fully charge it.

 

If you need to use your notebook, use it with the A/C power connected until the battery is charged, if possible.
