Fix: Message Consider replacing your battery, after Windows 7 upgrade


  1. I have officially solved this problem,

    1. Flip your laptop sideways in a smooth fashion (fast but not too fast) while the charger is plugged in

    (lift your laptop slightly in the air and hold the left side and push it upwards to the right direction and smoothly push it back and down)

    The errors and inconvenient messages will instantly dissapear!

    Try it yourself, maybe try more than once if it doesn’t work, I’m running a HP Pavillion and it fixed it.
    Enjoy 🙂

  2. Ive spent the last year trying everything to fix this laptop battery issue. Bios updates, charging and recharging my battery, enabling and disabling settings, you name it!

    Then I tried flipping my laptop sideways in a smooth fashion (fast but not too fast) while the charger is plugged in and hey presto, no more battery problems. My Toshiba Tecra is working again, with 8 times its original battery power

    Thanks KingMrBob!

  3. hi! i tried flipping it but didn’t work.. i have the same problem because of windows 7… if i’ll do some bios update.. where can i find the update?

    help me pls.. thanks..


  4. I received the “Warning your laptop is currently running on battery power. Recovery Manager…” while trying to restore my Compaq Presario CQ61. It also denied me the ability to make backup discs, after reading the “tilt it on its side” comment, I just removed the battery and the error message went away. During the restore process I tried putting it back and it (the laptop) complained about the battery again. I removed it again and the process completed with a problem.
    After it finishes maybe I’ll try some of the suggested methods of fixing the battery issue.

  5. I solved my problem with Vista basic.
    Install Vista basic, then reintall on Windows 7 and problem solved ur battery gonna run with no problems.

  6. sir i am getting still the same problem even though if i lifted the laptop and kept that correctly…..

  7. Hello,

    I know this might sound a daft question, but I have a Nokia Lumia 800 and the battery is sealed inside.

    Will this have the same technology and if so would it mean a major service to access and replace it. Most of my other mobiles have had batteries you can purchase for around £10, but I don’t think I like to know the cost of replacing my Lumia 800 battery and am so glad I can purchase spare battries for my Acer Laptop & other mobiles and only have to swap them (couple of minutes).

    It might be me but this idea of stopping users changing the batteries is a major backwards step and has stopped me purchasing things before. If I had realised about the sealed battery at the start, Nokia/Microsoft might have lost a customer and others might think the same.
