The last few days I've been getting a message on start up on my laptop that my internal battery was weak. The diagnostics I ran confirmed this. I saw the HP replacement battery wasn't reviewed very well on the HP web site so I purchased a Duracell replacement battery. It appears to be working well, except now I no longer have a battery icon in my lower tray so I have no idea what my battery level is. When it gets low, it gives me no warning and just shuts the laptop down. It also doesn't indicate when I am using my power cord. Is there anything I can do to change this?

Sounds like you replaced a WRONG battery, It should be the battery which powers the machine NOT the RTC battery.

Thank you for responding to my question so quickly. When I turned on my laptop this morning, the battery icon did appear in the bottom tray. Apparently if I had tried the usual solution of rebooting my electronic device, it would have shown up more quickly. This was my first time using this forum so I appreciated the quick response.
