Sounds like you need to replace the battery. A bad battery can in some cases even halt boot up of a laptop. For what it is worth the error message is referring to the removable battery- not the actual internal battery on the motherboard. That means you need to replace the laptop battery, if the laptop is still under warranty period which is generally one year after purchase then, you can get the battery replaced from HP without any cost otherwise, you have to buy it. Let me know if you need any further help or information otherwise, please remember to give a positive rating, as that is the only way I am compensated for my time and effort.

If I replace the battery will this allow the system to restart? What about the continuous stall on updating to 10? I don’t want to update to 10. Can I stop this somehow?
Tech Support Specialist: Sudipto, Hardware Engineer replied 6 months ago

You can cancel that update after you are able to start your laptop, but updating Windows 10 will make it more secure.

What? I can’t do anything my computer is in a continuous loop saying it’s restoring to previous and it has been saying that for hours! What else can I do??!
Tech Support Specialist: Sudipto, Hardware Engineer replied 6 months ago

Try the steps below and let me know, how it goes for you.

  1. Turn off the computer.

  2. Disconnect all connected devices and cables such as Personal Media Drives, USB drives, printers, and faxes. Remove media from internal drives, and remove any recently added internal hardware. Do not disconnect the monitor, keyboard, mouse, or power cord.

  3. Turn on the computer and repeatedly press the F11 key, about once every second, until the Choose your keyboard layout screen or Choose an option, screen displays and then follow these instructions:

    1. In Windows 8 click to select the keyboard layout. This will not be available on Windows 8.1

    2. The computer restarts. If the recovery partition on the hard disk drive is functioning correctly, the Choose an Option screen displays. Click Troubleshoot.

    3. On the Troubleshoot screen, click Recovery Manager.

    4. On the operating system selection screen, select your operating system.

      Recovery Manager opens.

  4. Under Help, click either Minimized Image Recovery to restore only the operating system, drivers, and some software, or click System Recovery to restore the computer to its original factory configuration.

     

  5. When Recovery Manager prompts you to back up your files, select a backup option:

I got it to install windows 8.1 again and it is in process. I had to continually hit the esc key. I wish you would have told me that?
Tech Support Specialist: Sudipto, Hardware Engineer replied 6 months ago

I have given you the steps which are described by HP and if HP has provided wrong information, what can I do? I am not the manufacturer nor the developer of Windows or the PC.

I figured it out before I saw your note. None of the info you sent me was any help. I installed the disc and it is reinstalling 8.1
Tech Support Specialist: Sudipto, Hardware Engineer replied 6 months ago

My information does not match yours because you are trying to restore Windows from the disc and I have given you the steps to restore using the inbuilt recovery partition of the PC.

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
