Just bought an HP DV7-4070US about 2 months ago (Brand new) with windows 7. The battery is now dead and it's indicating this message.

Never in my history of laptop ownership have I ever had a 9cell battery die this quickly.

EVER.

You better call HP then. I don't know HP's policy but if it is still under warranty they will probably replace the obvious faulty battery.

I guess I'm really fortunate. My battery is the original one in my 2 1/2 year old Toshiba laptop:

I called HP and they're replacing it.

WHEW.

I just REALLY hope I don't get this battery and it's dead in the same time span...

If it is then there is a problem with the laptop.
It would most likely point to a faulty motherboard.

You don't think it's this mysterious "Windows 7 Consider Replacing Your Battery" thing that got publicity earlier this year?

A bunch of websites have articles about it, CNET, Wired, Engadget ...

I wouldn't be so sure. I have a laptop that perfectly fits the description of both the battery failure and hardware overheating failure HP recalls as well as an NVIDIA recall, but it doesn't fall under the "affected model numbers" so they won't do anything about it. HP is off the radar for me after these ridiculous antics.

They luckily replaced it. It's being shipped as we speak

That's pretty good

I don't know what mine is, since I almost never have the battery in the laptop (I think I threw it in a cupboard somewhere lol.) The reason is that a friend I met at university said that just leaving a battery in, even if the laptop is connected to the mains power mostly, can wear the battery life down.
