EliteBook 8460p: battery not detected - update Bios?

Right now my Elitebook running WIN10 and I get a message that says no battery detected.  I read that possibly the BIOS update "might" help with this situation.

I looked at the details including the suggested site:

Date of revision of the BIOS - 26/08/2001

BIOS Rev 68SCF worm. F.08

Type of processor - Intel Core i5 - 2410 M CPU

I will be downgrading back to WIN7 PRO and back again to WIN10 as soon as my recovery disks are coming, but I wanted to know what Version of Bios should I download and install.  I want to get this right.


Hi fkbsar1954,

If I understand your post of the BIOS on your lapop is currently F.08.  If that is correct, it would be hard to bet that your laptop is at least four years because the BIOS F.08 was released in August 2011. That would mean that there is a high probability of 'no battery detected' error was due to a defective battery, but for troubleshooting of sake, it would be a good step to update the BIOS because there have been 4 separate BIOS releases the correction of different battery problems. What is the recommended version I would recommend that you upgrade to the latest version, F.61, in order to ensure the best possible compatibility with Windows 10 account taken of your system does not officially support Windows 10. F.61 BIOS can be found here:

  • Toshiba A300 PSAGCE battery not detected

    Hello everyone.

    I have a Toshiba Satellite A300 (PSAGCE) which worked well since I. Recently, he showed "battery not charging". I went to see what I could do and someone advised that I should update the BIOS. So, I went to the website of Toshiba and downloaded the update for my BIOS. I have install without problem. He now has the version 2.20. The problem of "battery not charging" had disappeared.

    I had a new problem: battery not detected!

    The battery worked well and he gave me 2 hours of normal use. Now, it is not "detected". I did everything I could think of. Do you have the BIOS reset (pressing on the WE / OFF button / stop for 30 seconds), I left it with the battery for a few days, etc...

    When I connect the battery, it shows an orange light for 5 seconds and he died later. I don't know what more I can do. I contacted Toshiba in my country without success. They have not yet responded to my email.

    Any ideas? I tried with another charger than computer shows the same.

    I have install as a program of "batterycare.net" and it shows that I have 1.40 hours of battery, but as soon as I remove the cable ca, the computer shuts down without power.

    I guess I won't be needing help... I flashed my BIOS with a lower version that I had (2.20 > 1.80) and now it does not start even upward.

    I'm kidding not things for good.

    Any changes to save it?

To do this, simply unplug everything (including the battery), power for 15 seconds button (you won't see anything happen), then reconnect and restart. After that windows will appear, give it another 30 seconds, then put battery back in. Now, it's all good!

  • Battery not detected after Windows update


    I own a HP Pavilion G series laptop and I have windows running on it 8.1. Windows just made me finish an update, after which it is not detecing my battery more. Initially, he says: "trendy but no charging current. That's why I shut down the computer, removed the battery and plugged in. Now, he said only: "no battery is detected.

    I should mention that I do not use the original supplied with the laptop battery. It's a long battery life that worked well until the update. Please note that I am not too good with computers.

    I appreciate any kind of help in this situation. In addition, please let me know if any other information is needed to help out me.

    Thank you

    Edit: Now, sound to pass the message between: "no battery is detected" and "trendy but no charging current.

    That of Emad,

    Welcome to the HP Forum.

    The updated patch is maybe not able to detect "non standard" battery you are using.

    You could try to use a Restore Point and affecting the system to a date before the update was installed.  In this way, the offending update will be deleted from your computer.

    Using Microsoft System Restore (Windows 8)

    Contrary to belief, you have a choice on the installation of the updates.   Windows cannot make you install updates on your computer.

    You can set Windows updates notification, so you can decide what updates are valid for your situation.  Many people choose this course as one that fits, even if it forces you to do a little more work.

    If you set the Windows updates to be notified

    • and you always create a Restore Point before you choose to install updates
    • and ONLY install you the important updates (never optional updates)
    • and you've read about the updates that you have any concerns at all
    • then, you may find that you have less long-term problems

  • Qosmio G10-133 - battery not detected after upgrading to Windows 7

    Hello, I hope someone can help my frustrations here.

    In recent weeks, I successfully upgraded my laptop to Windows 7, an increase of memory to 2 GB, bought new power cord for laptop, new battery and resolved all the issues that Windows 7 has cast on me. The laptop and runs like one dream other than a question that seems to have had worse.

    The laptop no longer recognizes the new battery. (battery with a cross through it and a photo of current) For about a week after installing the battery, this has worked fine but now does not detect everything. I don't have any errors in Device Manager and windows recognized the ACPI etc battery inputs and has no problem. I also loaded the package of Toshiba value added that Windows 7 has found for me but still nothing. Battery not charge even though sometimes the battery works for about 30 seconds to start up if the battery is back removed and implemented, then stops again (once Windows loaded) I tried many things like the disabling of the driver, reinstall battery etc, but nothing. I tried the iniitally of battery with Windows XP and worked well.

    I have also searched the web and saw that many other laptops with Windows 7 have had this problem, including Toshibas. Some say update the BIOS, but Toshiba have not released an upgrade from the original in 2004 (which is for WIn XP Media Center), and there is no settings in my BIOS for ACPI etc.

    In addition, I can not calibrate the battery because I can't do anything with it. I don't think it's a question though.

    If anyone has any ideas I would really appreciate it or all the links to the drivers etc.

    If this is sorted my laptop should last for 5 years!

    Thanks for reading this.



    First of all, I doubt that many other laptops equipped with Windows 7 have this problem. I've never heard of this and normally charge the battery will not be controlled of the OS. It happens automatically and your battery will be charged if the AC/DC is plugged. If the OS doesn't affect it!

    To be honest, I also don t know why your battery isn't detected, but what happens if you turn off the laptop and let the AC/DC adapter plugged in for 24 hours? After that, it should be possible to work on the minute of the battery for 1 hour or more.

    If this isn't the case, it seems to be a hardware problem, maybe the battery doesn t work correctly and should be replaced. You should contact the retailer where you bought

    By the way: some nice and interesting tips on battery:

    computer: hp pavilion g6

    Windows 7 32 bit

    My computer does not detect the battery.  I tried new batteries and batteries, I did the hard reset, I can't update the BIOS because I did find an update for this machine.  I made sure there is no dirt in the pins.  I have reset the BIOS default settings.  What is NOW?

    A lot of people, here's the deal.  It seems that a few screws have been protruding too far way from the holes in the battery compartment, preventing the connection of the battery.  Now, for a time after this discovery, the stack would be detected only part-time.  I think that it was a function of transport the computer and possibly have enough play in the compartment and then do not establish a connection.  The end, and to this day, the battery works as it should.  I'm still not sure why he only worked part-time for a while after the screw problem was initially discovered.

    Yes, we took the computer part to solve another problem. an overheating problem.  I put 'Arctic 5' compound on some components and blow up the computer outside air to a vacuum cleaner.  To this day the computer stopped not because of the heat.

    Yes, I know, the warranty is voided.  Well, the warranty was long since gone in the first place.  It's probably why I couldn't find an update of the BIOS of the computer.
