Question about PC Desktops
Is the battery "genuine" or off eBay? (I have to ask)
If it's from eBay then there is a very good chance it's a refurbished or even fake battery.
There is an IC inside the battery that identifies itself to the laptop. Most laptops use this kind of technology even in the power adaptor to detect a genuine unit from a fake that could damage the laptop.
If you had no problems with the original battery with identification then you can be assured the matching IC inside the laptop is fine and it's the IC in the battery that has either failed or is indeed non-genuine.
