Hello and welcome,

Some models do not have an internal battery:

I can't say whether they can be added. Hopefully others here can address that.

I have a T440 laptop that suddenly decided it's having an error with the internal battery that shipped with the system (which is a genuine battery, has not been touched/removed and was working fine until this morning).  The error displaying is: "The battery installed is not supported by this system and will not charge. Please replace the battery with the correct Lenovo battery for this system." I updated to the atest BIOS a few weeks ago, have the latest Power Manager and Power Manager driver as of a few days ago. External/removable battery is fine. Any thoughts on how to resolve this, or anyone else having this issue?

After buying a T440 (not throuh lenovo), I realized that it has capability to hold an internal battery. But the item I bought didn't have one. Instead it came with a 6 cell external battery which protrudes in the back. Is there any way I can have internal battery added now? I see that some sites like Amazon are selling replacement internal batteries; can I buy it and install in my laptop? Thanks in advance for your replies!

Hi community,let me first explain how I assume the switch between headphones and speakers should work:I turn on music or anything esle and if no headphones are plugged in, every sound comes from the internal speakers. Now if I plug in headphones then the sound comes exclusively from the headphones. If I pull then out again the sound comes from the speakers and so on. In my case the situation is the following:If I have no headphones plugged in and turn on music, then I hear if via speakers. If I decide to continue listening to that music via headphones and plug them in, then the music continues to come from the speakers, but for example the notification sound from outlook comes from the headphones. This works vice versa.If I open, say youtube to watch a video, while having the headphones plugged in, I will hear the sound via them. If I now unplugg them, the speakers will stay silent.What can I do that if there are no external speakers plugged in (headphones etc.) every sound will be played by the internal speakers, if I plug in some sort of external speaker it comes from them and if I unplugg it it switches back to the internal speakers?Thank you very much for your help!Best regards

I have a Lenovo Thinkpad T440 and the batteries are showing battery error in the Power Manager. I am unable to update my BIOS to see if that will solve it and my batteries don't seem to be eligible for a Firmware update. My Warranty is also expired. Anyone have any suggestions? error is showing up on both batteries  (Front internal and rear removable). Laptop works fine when plugged in but will not power on if it does not have a charger connected. Batteries don't charge at all (With or without it being powered on) All suggestions welcome. Would prefer not to have to get a new battery set as these ones are relatively new and shouldn't be throwing this error. I do not have a spare Thinkpad I can test the batteries in or that I can test a known good battery from.

Hi Valdemar_d,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
As per the query we understood that you are facing the issue with External battery not charging on your ThinkPad T440.
 
The problem you are running into is Power Manager conflicting with the 80% BIOS threshold.  So to avoid this, either keeps the Power Manager threshold for both batteries below 80%, or else both batteries above 80%.
 
Hope this helps.

Hi all, recently I bought Lenovo t440. How long should last battery (s) in this laptop in normal or power saving use with screen at 65-80 %? I know this laptop have two batteries , and both of them are 3 cell right ? Extended battery have 6 cell, which I don't have, but might I would  buy it . I noticed my both batteries last max 3,5 hours max 4. This is from I what know - slightly short.  Before I buy some of this batteries I would like to know which one is maybe fault, or worst of them. Maybe is faulty inside battery, maybe plug in one.  My battery indicator in win 8.1 shows both bAtteries ... It seems windows recognize capacity or remaining storage from both of batteries in same time,or, should I say, it seems my laptop is running on power from both of them in real time... Maybe laptop should drain batteries one by one ? Ok, if this is normal, let's skip it     main question is still,how to check each batterie health / or one by one in mY T440  to see which one is maybe faulty or less good, for potential replacement ?   thank you all

Hi, recently i bought from ebay an thinkpad t440 20B7-S0FV11 i5 4300u with 8Gb of RAM and 500Gb hdd.This laptop came without front battery (internal), it just came with the external one so i bought one internal battery on the internet and put it myself on my laptop.I press the reset button on the button of the laptop and turn it on.The issue is that windows (and also ubuntu) didn't recognize the battery. Windows say: "battery not detected"!I already update BIOS and everything and the battery still not detected.Initially, i thought that the battery was damaged but i charged it directly from the external battery, plug it inside of my laptop and turn it on. The laptop still not recognized the battery (and did not charge it neither), and windows says: Battery not detected!But the laptop work without external battery and charger, just with internal battery! (despite that not charging or detected) So i thought that the lithium cells are probably ok.I want to know if it's a battery problem, some lenovo firmware on battery (since battery came from china) or some problem with laptop!Thank you all.(sorry for my english)

Hello The subject of this message says it all. When I want to start my T440 without AC power, it happens quite often that the machine will not start at all - no lights, nothing. In such a case I am forced to plug in AC power just for 1 second, hit the power button and then my T440 will start. Sometimes it starts without AC power, but then again sometimes it does not. it seems random. Note: I am not talking about resuming from hibernation or etc, I am talking about a new, fresh start.I searched the internet in detail for a solution, but no result to my problem. Of course I read from other users having problems starting up their T440, but never exactly the same problem.My battery lasts for a couple of hours.  What to do? I am in Myanmar, far away from support. I tried many things already, including taking batteries out, start, turn off, start again.... Many thanks for your help.

Hello forum, I bought a like-new T440 last week (500 GB+16 GB, 8 GB RAM, i5) & my experience so far has not been good at all. I am a student on budget & I got it to replace my failing 5-yr old atom powered netbook. I don't really care about other widely reported problems with this model like the button-less keypad. But the 1600x900 TN screen is so bad when compared to my old netbook's screen that I can't believe how Lenovo got away by putting this screen in an ultrabook.  There are other issues that have been bugging me and I need some help: 1. The brightness keys stop working after a while (for example, after waking the laptop from hibernation). They will not work until I restart the system again. Is there any way to resolve this issue? 2. The Access connections also stops working after a while and shows that I am not connected to the net even when I am online. How can I fix this problem? Or is it safe to turn off access connections & just rely on Windows network and sharing center? 3. The battery life is abysmal.

Answer:T440 Ultra Dock - after being in dock - internal Monitor does not work - USB does - disabled

I pulled my unit out of the dock - powered up and the display goes blank (if you look carefully you can see the bios boot screen, then black, then you can see the backlight turn off. I plugged in the USB monitor and boom - I could log in. Once Logged in I could see that windows still thinks it has some of the monitors from the dock, and the internal display is set to disable. So the issue is the detection / setup of monitors in/out of the dock. I've done about all I can do for dubugging, I hope lenovo can pick up from here. if not I'll have to call lenovo support.

Similar to why some people don't like to charge laptop batteries to 100% and in line with preserving battery life, I also rarely let my laptop batteries hit a rock bottom 0%. By default the laptop was set to hibernate if the battery reached 5 or 6% but I raised this lower limit to 10%. (i.e. auto-hibernate at 10%) I heard the reasons why it is bad to let batteries completely drain to 0. Main one being something to do with the battery cells falling into a "deep slumber" and simply not waking up unless you send the laptop in for a "shock treatment". Like the "gate" at the entrance to the battery cells don't even have enough energy themselves to even open the "gate" to allow energy to go into the cell itself. Anyway, is there a way to stop the slice battery from reaching 0%? So that once the slice battery goes down to 10%, for example, the laptop will switch over to use the main internal battery?  













Solved!

Go to Solution.

Answer:laptop allows 39+ slice battery to reach 0% before switching to use internal battery.

There is not currently any way to do what you request.  But draining the battery to 0% isn't really 0% capacity of the battery. The 100% charge of the battery is normally 4.2 volts. The 0% charge state is really 3.0 volts. So when the battery reports 0% it is not really zero volts because the cell must be kept at higher state of charge for the health of the battery. The battery firmware is intelligent enough not to let the battery discharge to a point where the battery health is impacted.

After extensive testing, updating drivers, software, firmware, bios, resetting battery meter and various charge threshold combinations, etc., it seems that the slice battery won't charge past 80% unless the internal battery is allowed to charge to 100%. If I set both batteries to charge until full (100%), this happens:1. internal battery charges to 80%, then stops.2. laptop switches to slice battery. charges slice battery to 80%, then stops.3. laptop switches back to internal battery and continues charging it to the 100% threshold.4. finally laptop switches back to slice battery and finishes charging it to 100% also. However, if I set both batteries charge threshold to stop at 90%, this happens:1. internal battery charges to 80%, stops.2. slice battery charges to 80%, stops.3. internal battery starts charging again until it reaches the 90% that i set, stops again.4. and then, that's it....lol.. The slice battery does not continue to charge until 90%. it just gets stuck at 80%.

Question: Internal battery

I have an old (1996?) Amstrad with windows `95
I now have a new computer and would like to give the old one to my daughter,but....
Does anybody please know where the internal battery is situated? My screen was telling me to change it. I have it in pieces on the floor and I still can`t see it! Help.
 

Answer:Internal battery

It will be somewhere on the motherboard. It's a flat round battery like those in a watch only larger. On some older PCs, the battery is soldered to the motherboard so you may need to take it to a shop to have it replaced if that's the case.

Answer:internal battery 601

Hi, Just to clarify, the 601 error relates to your notebooks main battery ( not the rtc cell on the system board ). If you're happy with running the machine on mains power full time, there's no issue with that and you can simply remove the battery. If you do want to replace the battery at some time, you can order a new one through HP Parts Store or ( and often less expensive ), just google the full Model No. of your dv7 series notebook including the term battery. Regards, DP-K

Question: internal battery

I am trying to replace the internal battery in an old P486. The only info I have on the motherboard is, MB-65-P486-BI0t. I can not find the battery to replace it. The motherboard appears to be manufactured in 1996. Can any one help. The closest thing I have found to a battery is a 2 in oblong plug in that has "green pc function" written on the top.
 

Answer:internal battery

Hi Becky, welcome to TSG.

Have a look here to see if we can't ID your motherboard...I can't find anything with that number.

Okay, so I've been having a few programs with my computer...this including slowness, poor wifi connections, and odd performance of wacom tablets.

The problems with a tablet are described in more detail here--> http://www.sevenforums.com/drivers/1...ml#post1658350

Recently, before I signed into windows, a message on a black screen popped up stating something about my internal battery needing to be replaced. I'm on an HP pavilion laptop // HP pavilion entertainment PC.

Could the problems I mentioned above be related to the battery? I desperately need to be able to use my tablets for my major in college, and are majorly concerned with how they've been acting poorly with my laptop...could just replacing the battery work?

Also, would the 'internal battery' still be the battery that is capable of being removed from the laptop? Or does a laptop of two batteries?

Answer:"Internal battery" notices..what problems could a low battery cause?

This is the CMOS battery it is talking about. It should be replaced asap. But this is not a do it yourself job in a laptop. Better have some expert deal with it.

Answer:internal battery error 601

It would help to know your laptop model. But I would say the "internal" is the CMOS or Real Time Clock battery. That is why I ask your model because it is unusual to see one of those die in less than 5 years. The model of the laptop would also allow us to show you how to replace the internal battery. It can be quite a job although the little battery (like a hearing aid battery) is very inexpensive usually.

Hi. After just 13 month, the battery of my Thinkpad X1 only lasted 15 minutes, and I got a warning that the battery was in a bad shape . I used the Thinkvantage Power Manager to recalibrate the battery (German Version: Rekalibrierung durchführen) , now it shows a remaining time of 48  hours. I try to recalibrate the battery again, but the recalibration process stops after a few (10 to 30) seconds. Anything I can do to get reliable remaining battery operation time? Thanks...

Answer:Thinkpad X1 internal battery

Hi Remy_Gruetter:
 
This is an interesting problem, let me start out by asking, have you downloaded the latest battery firmware?
 
If not, or if you're unsure, check here: Lenovo Battery Firmware Update Utility
 
This is at least a good place to start.

Answer:T440p internal battery

Hi and welcome, hitmaxT440p doesn't support additional, internal battery installation, so doesn't support ThinkPad Power Bridge technology you are talking about. T440s does.If the OS on the T440p installed supports Lenovo Power Manager app, there is a feature that allows battery replacement while laptop is hibernated.Batteries for the T430 and T440p are not interchangeable.

Hi all, I have a question regarding internal battery care. I have seen other people pointing to posts on battery care but unfortunately they pertain to removable batteries. Question is, what is the best way to take care of an internal battery? I mainly work at my desk with the computer plugged in, Before, I would remove the battery. Now that the battery is internal, I can not. Do I leave it plug the entire time? Or should I unplug it once the battery is fully charged? Thanks!

Answer:t440s internal battery

Should not the parts list tell you whether the internal battery was available during shipment?The T440s without internal battery has a space filler in the battery position and this part is not something you can get after market. You could pop open the T440s bottom chassis and have a look.

I get this message when starting a Compaq Presario CQ60-420SA. Forums suggest that the CMOS battery should be replaced. If it is a CMOS battery problem, surely the laptop would not maintain date and time, which is not the case. So, does the message mean that I need to replace the Li-on battery?

Answer:Primary internal 601 Battery

"....If it is a CMOS battery problem, surely the laptop would not maintain date and time, which is not the case...."
Your assumption is correct - the CMOS doesn't need replacing.
I did a Google search and found this cached article. The message you're getting refers to the the laptop's main battery. You can either get yourself a new one, or if you always run the laptop on AC power, leave things as they are.

I am a IT tech at my company, we are a Lenovo shop. We recently purchased several x240's and when I get them I have to add memory to them. I noticed when I opened this last one up it had an additional battery inside. After I put it back together I tried to power it by that battery but it wouldnt start. However I plugged in the traditional battery and it started. Can you tell me the reason for the additional battery and how that works? Also as a side note, there is an issue with the internal cache card. I found that upon trying to image the laptop with our company image, it will not see the current hard drive if the cache card is added to the laptop as an option. It will only see the 14.9gb cache card as the main hard drive. The cache card has to be disabled and is on the side of the motherboard that you cannot see by removing the bottom for the image to install properly, which by the way will void your warranty if you do it yourself. Also the cache card is not HIPAA complient which is something we have to observe at my company.

Answer:X240 Internal Battery

Internal built-in battery starts when external one is disabled or absent as well as the AC adapter.One of the reason built-in battery allows replacement the external battery when that's fully discharged or for the management purpose while laptop is working w/o AC adapter.Also the laptop has a less weight with built-in battery only.Note you have to disable built-in battery before you perform any servicing laptop built-in parts - RAM sticks, disk drives, wlan/wwan adapters etc... Do it in the BIOS Setup menu. For more details read laptop User Guide.

Answer:Internal Battery Error (601)

Can we have your full model number? I think the error you are seeing refers to the "main", large battery and not the little clock or CMOS battery. Is your system closed so that the battery is not easily removeable? The full model number will point us to the right service manual which will show the part you need and the replacement process.

My computer does not start. I have an Intel motherboard D850GB, P4, 1.3 ghz, XP Home
The internal power supply seems to be working as an LED lights up when I turn on the computer. But nothing else happens.
My computer is 7 years old and my brother...who is no expert... wonders if the problem is a dead battery inside the computer.
Please help!
 

Answer:Desktop internal battery failure?

The battery your brother is thinking of is a shiny silver-coloured lithium button cell, about 3/4 of an inch in diameter, probably with a number something like CR2032. It powers the CMOS (BIOS) in your motherboard while the PC is switched off. In the UK it costs the equivalent of about US$5 and is widely available.
To replace it, you'll have to open the PC. Make sure the PC is switched off and disconnected from mains voltage.
You CAN damage electronic components with the electrostatic charge stored in your body, so first touch a metal part of the case to equalise your potential and the PC's.
Take care not to damage the battery-holder when removing the old cell and note which way up the cell is facing. Get a new cell with the same number as the old one and replace it in the battery-holder - right way up! Check that it's making good contact. I had one new motherboard fail to fire up because the battery was rattling around inside the holder.
Once you've replaced the cell, your BIOS will be reset to its default values and may need tweaking to restore the PC's behaviour to what you're used to.
Good luck!

The display on my T440s is dead.  I would like to remove the hard drive before sending the laptop in.  The user guide says to disable the internal battery before moving the hard drive - but this requires access to the BIOS configuration, which cannot be done on an external monitor. Is it essential to disable the internal battery before removing the SSD?  If so, how can I do this? Thanks

Hello,  I bought a T460 model number: 20FMS2291P from Lenovo and have discovered that there is no internal(powerbridge) battery in the system just a black plastic "filler" case where the internal battery should be. I chose the 6 Cell 47wh cylindrical battery and as far as I can see there was never any option to choose "no battery" for the front battery. Could someone please guide me as to which steps I must take to rectify this.

Answer:BIOS PW R51 after Internal Battery change

dewSkins, welcome to the forum,
 
By removing the BIOS battery you have provoked the need to enter the supervisor password. As IBM and lenovo have never set default passwords you'll need find ot the password that was set, by someone, in order to access the BIOS. If you purchased the system second hand maybe you could ask the previous owner

Hello, When on battery power, my X260's internal battery is discharging before the external battery. I am using Windows 10 Home and bios is 1.19 (what it came shipped with). I haven't found any definite solution to this problem--only comments from others where the problem went away eventually. I've had the computer for 10 days and have tried many suggestions but nothing is working--the internal battery continues to drain first before the external one. I'm hesitant to call or get support because I don't want to send the computer in or have a tech rip the computer apart for what is apparently a software/firmware issue. Just to add: all drivers are updated and battery performance is perfectly normal--I get the expected run times. It's just the internal battery is draining first and then the external one second. I would appreciate any other suggestions or a fix. Thanks

New Lenovo x260 and I love the machine. I noticed that the system uses the internal battery and discharges it to 5 percent before switching to the external battery. This behavior seems contrary to what is stated in the Lenovo settings application that indicates the swappable 3- or 6-cell battery (i have both) will be discharged first, then the internal battery is discharged. It then charges in the reverse order -- internal battery charges first, then the external battery. Is this something that can be adjusted? Will the system occasionally use the internal battery first? I am using only genuine Lenovo external batteries and both are healthy and get used and charged just fine. The only thing that I can imagine I've done to create the problem is by reinstalling the system image from a recovery disk I created before doing anything with the machine. That story: The instant I booted into Windows 10 for the first time upon recieving the new machine, I created recovery media. I formatted the machine and tried to install Windows 10 professional using a serial I own but I encountered an activation issue. As a result, I abandoned my effort to run a clean install, booted the USB recovery key I created and restored the system to the Lenovo factory state with all the drivers installed and the nifty Thinkpad wallpaper, and so on. So I am using the system with a factory image. Or is this just normal behavior? Thanks in advance.
