Last Windows 10 update left my laptop slow and complaining of a battery replacement needed at the boot. Then yesterday it froze and to clear this I did a hard reboot that did not recover from. The boot still begins with the battery warning then stays on the HP logo spinning, I did the system check and no other hardware is failing. So one other older post suggested corruption and reloading os before that I felt I should get a new battery and make a copy of the hard drive. What do you think?
Well I had to remove the battery to read the replacement number and I had to close the laptop and turn it upside down. Then I put the battery back in and restarted it. It booted up and was fast again. I think something is loose or the battery warning impacts the boot. I'm backing everything up and preparing for disaster again..
