I've been trying to find the solution on my own but I'm just out of my depth here.
When I turn on my laptop I get a black screen that tells me there is a 601 error with my internal battery. I'd like to purchase another battery and replace it because I need my laptop working perfectly for the bar exam in July 2016. Is this something I can do myself or should I take it to a shop?
I think this is the battery I need: 6 cell 62WHr 2.8 Ah lithium-ion battery
Can someone confirm that?
Also, I'm not sure what the internal batter is. There's a battery that I can eject from the bottom of my laptop. The Regulatory Model Number is HSTNN-LB3N and it's a rechargeable Li-ion battery. It also says to change with HP spare 671731-01. Is this a different battery than the 6 cell one I mention above?
I'd greatly appreciate the help! Thank you in advance!

Internal battery error 601 refers to:
The measured storage capacity of the primary (internal) battery is less than 25% of the original storage capacity. The number “601” denotes the associated error code that is recorded in the system log.
NOTE: This is NOT the error to indicate to CMOS battery failure.
Yes, if the unit is under warranty please contact HP technical support and get a replacement battery and you can replace the battery yourself.

I have gone ahead and sent you an email with image and video instructions to remove and replace the battery.
Following are the part numbers for this unit with 9-cell and 6-cell batteries.
You can get the appropriate one with which the unit went with:
