Default Get rid of HP Battery Warning Message

When I turn on my computer, the first thing that comes up is a message from hp that my battery should be replaced: "HP Battery Alert
The system has detected the storage capacity of the battery stated below to be very low.
For optimal performance, this battery may need to be replaced.
Primary (internal) Battery (601)
ENTER - Continue Startup"

Is there anyway to get rid of this without buying a new battery?

I've tried it without the battery and the message does not appear; howeverr, I want to be able to keep my battery pack in.

Thanks for any help.

Uninstall the HP Adviser. Pretty sure that's what checks battery status.

I never thought about that! Would there be any negative effects from uninstalling this, or is it an unnecessary software that HP loads onto all their computers?

Thanks for the help.

It's pretty unnecessary.

Hit start, click run/type "msconfig" (without the quotes) and untick anything that says HP in the startup tab. You can disable anything else like google updater, adobe, etc etc. Useless startup programs. You can also disable any HP services in the services tab. You'll need to apply and restart, once logged back on, the system will display a message about the system configuration utility. You can click the checkbox and close it, if the HP software doesn't come up.

Hi, the only 2 HP things turned on are Quick Launch buttons (I use those so I keep them on) and Wireless Assistant (which I also use). I'll try disabling these and see if it makes a difference.

You can operate wireless without the wireless assistant.

Not really sure what it does, actually...

Are you sure it's an HP message and not a generic message from Windows saying your battery is bad?

I disabled the wireless assistant and the quick launch buttons and it still comes up.

I did some browsing in the HP FAQ and found some interesting things.

Quote:
Q: Can the HP Battery Alert be disabled?

A: No, the HP Battery Alert can not be disabled.
Quote:
Q: Can I bypass or skip the HP Battery Alert message?

A: The HP Battery Alert message appears for a period of 15 seconds, after which the notebook PC will automatically continue starting up. After seeing the HP Battery Alert message appear, you may depress the Enter key to have the notebook PC continue starting up before the 15 second period lapses.
Quote:
Q:Which HP notebook PC models support the HP Battery Alert?

A: HP and Compaq branded business and consumer notebook PC models announced June 2008 and later include and support the HP Battery Check utility. The HP Battery Alert message supports HP and Compaq branded primary and secondary batteries for these models and does not support third party batteries. The HP Battery Alert message is not available for or supported on HP or Compaq branded business or consumer notebook PC models announced prior to June 2008.
So, is this something I'm just not going to be able to get rid of?

Thanks for your help.
