Battery not detected

Split x2
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

My laptop only turns on with the AC power adapter and it reads battery not present. I have tried uninstalling the battery drivers, updating the BIOS no luck anything else I can try it has an internal battery

Battery not detected

@Aaron951 , welcome to the forum.

 

If you haven't done so, you should run the battery diagnostics to see if it has failed.  See the "Test your battery" section in the link that I provided for help.

Thank you for the additional information, @Aaron951!  It sounds like you have a failed battery if the diagnostics doesn't run.

Would I be better off replacing the battery or buying a new laptop

@Aaron951, if you provide the full model of your laptop I will help you find the price of the battery.  It would be much less expensive to buy a new battery.
