It says battery is in need of replacement, then shuts down few min later. I purchased a new battery and charged it over night, it dont recognize it, but will recognize old batter. I can get to control panel, but seems to see what im doing and shuts down. Same in safe mode
Some laptop makers, looking at you HP, will make the laptop only work with approved batteries, i.e. the laptops branded batteries are the only one the charger will charge. if you can charge the battery it should work to power thew unit but you cannot charge it in the unit.
