internal battery 601

Hello, I have HP Pavilion g6 notebook for 2.5 years and I started to get message about Primary(internal) battery 601 stating that is has low capacity and may need to be replaced. Please, tell me can I still use it without problems when plugged in. If no, then how to replace it . Thank you

Re: internal battery 601

Hi,

 

Just to clarify, the 601 error relates to your notebooks main battery ( not the rtc cell on the system board ).

 

If you're happy with running the machine on mains power full time, there's no issue with that and you can simply remove the battery.

 

If you do want to replace the battery at some time, you can order a new one through HP Parts Store or ( and often less expensive ), just google the full Model No. of your dv7 series notebook including the term battery.

 

Regards,
