Internal battery replacement

HP Pavilion g7-1310us
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Hi

 

Here lately whenever I turn on my laptop I get a message saying the internal battery needs to be replaced soon.

 

I would like to buy one on Amazon, can someone please tell me exactly what I need to be looking for?

Thanks so much! Have a great day!

Internal battery replacement

Please give the exact message. It could be either the main large battery we all are familiar with or it might be the smaller clock battery (RTC) and the replacement options are entirely different for the 2 kinds of batteries.

Of course now when i started it back up, there was no message (after showing a messge these last 2 days!)

But i am quite sure it had to do with 601...Primary Internal Battery...but...I could be wrong.

I will get back to you as soon as I see the message again, thanks for helping!

Primary internal battery is the main, big battery. You might go into F2 diagnostics as you boot up and run the battery test.

Internal battery replacement

I tried the F2....but there seems to be no Battery Test option.

 

I saw this:

 

F1- System Information

 

F2 - Start-up test

 

F3 - Run-In test

 

F4 - hard Disk Test

 

F11 - Error Log

 

Nowhere did I see anything about battery...ughh...

 

Also, when you say primary internal is the main big battery...do you mean the one you clip in and out when you flip the laptop over? (sorry for the dumb questions!)

Yes that is what I mean. One other thing to try. If you have HP Support Assistant installed as a program I believe there is a battery test included in it.

Doesn't look like  have HP Support assistant on here....

 

So if I do not replace the big battery...what will happen? Can it not just run off the mains?

Strange that I have not seen the startup warning now for 2 days....

 

And i do not now if this is my imagination but today it seems my screen is not as "bright'....almost as if I am looking at it through sunglasses, but not as bad. Am I aming sense at all?

I'm just getting a bit nervous...maybe just a bit paranoid...haha

 

Can you please tell me what  need to buy then, as far as big battery...I will be looking on amazon as I have some gift cards saved up on there....thanks

It's like a car with 150,000 miles on it...still runs but not much longer. The key is 925/300 cycles. You have gotten over 3 times the expected life out of it. 

 

Genuine:

Compatible:

 

https://www.amazon.com/Battpit-Notebook-Replacement-Pavilion-g7-1310US/dp/B00D6BJNQM/ref=sr_1_3?ie=U...

 

Big price difference. On a laptop as old as yours I would probably settle for a compatible battery. Will likely be fine.
