ProBook 6565B - No Battery Is Detected

Brand new laptop and I am getting this message right off the bat. What gives? I see many posts about such an error but no solid solutions. Anyone?

Wow, what a load of crap. I'll never buy another HP product again if this is the service I can expect. Faulty equipment and lack of support? What a joke.

Re: ProBook 6565B - No Battery Is Detected

I understand how you feel when things do not work properly right off the bat. Just know that the laptop has (typically) a 3 year warranty (1 year in some cases) and you should be calling HP Support for any issues you feel require it. Unless you option HP's Long Life Battery with a 3 year warranty, the standard Lithion-Ion batteries can only be warrantied for one year

 

Now, if you still have issues with the battery not been seen or not charging, sometimes batteries can be discharged so fully that they not respond properly to charging systems. HP released a BIOS update for the 6565b AMD laptop to should handle these deep discharge situations and recover the battery. It is version F.41 releases in May. Please, update the BIOS and see if the battery restarts its normal operaion. If it does not, please call HP support and have the battery replaced
