I bought this laptop 8 months ago and now my HP app tells me that my battery should be replaced (bought it in romania from PC Garage). Now I asked the comany I bought it from to replace my battery because I got warranty. They came back with a response and told me that my battery isnt covered anymore by my warranty. I looked on the hp app and it tells me that I have warranty+care pack until almost 2024 and it says that no matter what the problem is, my warranty will cover it. Now the problem is that I dont know what to do. Can anyone help me?

This service includes the replacement battery, standard ground shipping and environmentally responsible disposition of the battery.
Option (1) Contact PC Garage. They should contact HP service to handle warranty case.

I dont know if this helps you but my battery just repaired overnight somehow. I just left my laptop alone and after 2 weeks of no battery, it showed me that it is at 100 percentage and it seems to work again. My guess is that the drivers were faulty or something and the pc just solved it. What is your guess?

Use the battery from time to time and let it discharge to 30% capacity then charge it again. Do not leave the battery permanently at 100% capacity when the charger is connected.
Observe the behavior of the battery for a few weeks. If it stays like this we can close the case. Report back then.

The thing is that after I installed your bios version, everything worked just fine. A few days ago I got a notification from the HP Support Assistant app telling me to update my bios. I did that and today I got the replace notification on my battery tab. I was a bit angry and scared but then I remembered that u gave me a bios version so I decided to install the one u gave me and now the battery works just fine. Im done getting updates from the HP Support Assistant app. Thank you for your patience!
