When I boot up my laptop with my battery installed, I get the message 'The battery could not be recognized.. press F1 to continue'


Is there anyway to disable this message.  I know my battery is dead, so I run my laptop on AC power, but I like to keep the battery installed just so there isnt a big gaping battery slot, and besides the battery also raises the laptop base to help with ventilation.


Any ideas on how to disable the message

After powering on the laptop, right away start tapping F2 until you get to the bios screen. Use your arrow keys to move around the menu. If I recall correctly there was a setting in the bios to disable battery warnings. It has been a while since I have seen a 1525 or 1545 so I don't know where the setting was. You will have to go through the menus to find it. Also it may not exist on certain bios versions. Check in bios and report anything you find. It may not refer specifically to the battery either, it may be a "disable all warnings on boot" type of settings. I can't remember...
