HP Omen Batteries Become Undetectable to System? Fixes?

HP Recommended
So my HP Omen 15-5000 series might be 3 years old, if that. My older brother gave it to me after he bought it and barely used it whatsoever. The battery was fine at first, the computer barely got used just here and there for my little brother's school essays, the occasional Skype & maybe some music playlists. Carefully handled, all that jazz. Well one day I turn it one to discover the an error message right at boot-up that reads: This battery has low memory &/or can no longer be detected. I did the online search for answers thing, seems to be somewhat of a common problem with the Omens. Anyway I reset the BIOS, tried another AC Adapter, etc until eventually I went to Amazon and purchased a new battery.
