Consider replacing your battery fix in Windows 7

Windows 7 Laptop Battery Issue Fix

Hi everybody,

I remember 2 years ago when I started using Windows 7 beta edition. I was so happy with the new OS by Microsoft. That time also I noticed that even my new Laptop’s battery was shown faulty.

When beta edition expired and I upgraded to Windows 7 Professional, the laptop battery was still shown faulty. There was always an red cross on the battery’s icon in the system tray and on taking the mouse cursor over the battery icon, it showed a pop-up message saying “Consider replacing your battery” as shown in the image below.

I think that I installed Windows 7 Service Pack 1 from the Windows Update online. It has been a while that I had installed it. I was very astonished to see a fix for this issue last night only and I felt cherished that Microsoft took care of this. I am not sure what really helped but I install Windows Update regularly.

To fix this, simply click the battery icon in the system tray. A small pop-up window will appear right above there only. In it you can see there is an option “Warn me if my battery may need replacement” with a check box.

Just remove the check mark from this option. And you’ll see you no longer get this kind of distracting red X on your laptop’s battery icon.
