Was this replacement battery the original oem battery, or indeed a "replacement" battery? It's possible if it is an aftermarket battery, it isn't being recognized by the BIOS. Does the battery get recognized in windows at all? Open Device Manager

Start> Type Device Manager in search box> Press enter

Expand the batteries section, any yellow exclamation marks?

64 bit home edition windows 7

remember sometimes its the smallest things: with a spray can of air clean your battery connecting prongs of debris around the connection, it might be a small piece of paper or fuzz ball thats causing a problem, your battery is probably good, but just cant verify it even exist with debris in the way. hope it works

new no battery is detected

I have the exact same problem and have been searching online for a solution. Gateway NV series and Win7 bottom right corner said "consider replacing your battery" so I bought a "compatible" replacement off Ebay. The new battery installed always says "No battery is detected". What should I do? Would a genuine battery be the way to go? I can return this one, but is the battery the problem or settings in the pc?

No battery is detected!
Running Windows 7 pro, 64-bit and for some reason my laptop won't detect the battery. The laptop is just over a year old so hasn't been used that often, but it would be interesting to know why it won't detect the battery all of a sudden?

No battery detected with Windows 7
I've installed Windows 7 RC on my old Acer TravelMate 4001 notebook. Installation went fine, all drivers are working, but only one is missing - ACPI driver. In other words, Windows doesn't know, that there's a battery in the computer and that's quite a problem for a notebook. It's problem with...
