Save your work and shut down the computer.
Resolving a low battery level when the computer cannot exit Hibernation
When the computer lacks sufficient power to exit Hibernation, follow these steps:
Replace the discharged user-replaceable battery with a charged battery, or connect the AC
adapter to the computer and to external power.
Exit Hibernation by pressing the power button.
Storing a user-replaceable battery
To reduce the risk of damage to a battery, do not expose it to high temperatures for
extended periods of time.
If a computer will be unused and unplugged from external power for more than 2 weeks, remove the
battery and store it separately in a cool, dry place to prolong the battery charge.
A stored battery should be checked every 6 months. If the capacity is less than 50 percent, recharge
the battery before returning it to storage.
Disposing of a user-replaceable battery
To reduce the risk of fire or burns, do not disassemble, crush, or puncture; do not short
external contacts; do not dispose of in fire or water.
See the
Regulatory, Safety and Environmental Notices

Replacing a user-replaceable battery

charging properly or when the battery storage capacity has reached a weak condition. If the battery is
possibly covered by an HP warranty, instructions include a warranty ID. A message refers you to the
HP website for more information about ordering a replacement battery.
