Bought a new laptop battery (Anker 90HPG62-B88A) for my husband's HP G72 notebook.  Followed all instructions regarding charging new battery and it's been working great for 2-3 weeks now.  Today laptop would not boot up.  Only went to HP screen and stayed there.  I googled some stuff on my kindle and it said something about BIOS and removing battery and doing start up with power cord.  So I removed the Anker battery, plugged in the power cord, and all has been well since then.  I put the old battery back in (only 25% charging capacity, but it will hold for about 1/2 hour) and still all is well.


Do you think there's a problem with the new battery?  Never had any trouble like this before this time.  Thanks for your help.


Oh, I should add that I have rebooted the computer with the old battery in, no power cord, several times, and it works just fine.

Anker® New Ultra High Capacity Laptop Battery [12-cell / 8800mAh] for HP G42 G62
Check to see if you got a warranty with the battery. Most give 12 months -


If so ; take it back -

noknojon, after examining the link for the battery you recommended it appears identical to the one I had ordered.  I was finally able to find a compatible battery on the hp store website and purchased it.  That website doesn't make it easy.  Anyway, I've had this battery in for about a week now and seems okay.  Not as much charge on it, though.


Thanks for your help.
