Re: Help,!! Hp pavilion dv6 -6c 11 nr



The error 'Primary (internal) Battery (601)' does indicate that your notebooks main battery ( not the cmos battery as the error tends to suggest ) is showing signs of wear and you may want to consider replacing it - the 601 error typically occurs when the storage capacity has fallen below 25% of its original value.


Further information on this can be found on the following HP document.




This is a warranty item, so if your notebook is still covered, contact HP and arrange to have it replaced - If needed, you can check your warranty status Here.


If you live in the US, contact HP Here.


If you are in another part of the world, start Here.
