I have a lenovo think pad x230 and I'm getting a pop up telling me that the laptop no longer sees a factory battery in the lap top and will  not charge it but the battery is the original battery and has been taking charges fine for the last 2-3 months. It seemed to happen on the same day that MS sent an update I take it there is some sort of hand shake between the laptop and the battery and that isn't working. I've chkd the battery and cleaned it but it wasn't really that dirty, I made sure the battery was tight and there was no difference after I did that. I've tried draining the capacitors twice and that didn't change anything I tried uninstalling the ACPT Compliant Control Listings I'm pretty sure it didn't uninstall but the pop up was so quick I'm not sure it did or didn't uninstall. I tried that twice and it didn't work either. I'm pretty sure the problem lies with the MS update but I don't know how to access it and I don't know what to look for. There was another MS update a  few days ago but it didn't fix the problem either. Any help would be appreciated I'm also very new to computers so I need a thorough and simple explanation or at least show me where to go to find a simple explanation. Thanks.

You can back out the last two updates:

Assume you have seen this:

Apparently the battery check is controlled by the BIOS.  There is a procedure to flash the BIOS to remove the check.

I also found this discussion which might be useful:

Thanks that's very helpful I'll chk out the sites and try what they have to say and yes I was on Lenovo Forums but didn't get any suggestions as to where to look for the answer there was a quick response but then they wanted screen shots and I couldn't get the screen shot to show up on my reply. Wasted a lot of time trying to find an answer to it before I tried coming here. Good stuff thanks.
