    Prevent dead battery message?


    My old Lenovo laptop is now used only to record TV shows off an antenna and is always plugged in. The battery died from old age a while back and I get a Lenovo warning message in Windows 10 every time I boot the computer. The message is that the battery is dead due to normal use and cannot be charged (or something like that).


    Does anyone know how I can disable that pop-up message? It's not a huge deal as it only pops up once when the system is booted. But it would be nice to disable whatever's creating it as a new $$ battery is not needed. Thanks for any help.

    Can you pull the battery out....if you can that would be your best move and it prevent in corrosion damage.

    I'll have to see if it boots without a battery. If so then I'll have to whittle a prosthesis to fill the gap.

    If the message is from Lenovo then it's probably a bit of OEM software that runs at start-up. Look in Task Manager's Start-up tab and see if it's there, if so you could disable it.

    Pulled the battery and it boots fine. I'll have to see if any new messages appear. It actually looks kind of 'sporty' with the gap behind the keyboard. THANK YOU for the workaround ;-)
