How to Remove ‘Consider Replacing your Battery’ Notifications and Red X in Windows 7Posted: August 24, 2011
Windows 7 SP1 (Service Pack 1) adds the ability to simply disable the battery health warnings by unselecting ‘Warn me if my battery may need replacement’. To access this new feature, simply download and install SP1. You can do this by clicking on your start button, all programs, and then Windows Update (SP1 is listed as an Important Update).
The option can be accessed by left clicking on your battery icon in the tray bar (only once SP1 has been installed).
This is a follow up post from here
This post will take your laptop from this:
1. Click the battery icon, and select ‘More power options’.
2. On your preferred plan, select ‘Change plan settings’.
3. Click ‘Change advanced power settings’.
4. Scroll down, and expand ‘Battery’.
5. Expand ‘Low battery level’ and change the percentages to 7%.
6. Expand ‘Critical battery level’ and change the percentages to 5%.
7. Expand ‘Reserve battery level’ and change the percentages to 4%.
8. Expand ‘Low battery action’ and ensure that the values are set to ‘Do nothing’.
9. Expand ‘Critical battery action’ and ensure that the value for ‘On battery’ is set to ‘Hibernate’.
So far, we have lowered Window’s cause for concern when the battery’s level is low, and prevented it from hibernating at 17%, but rather, at 5%. The next few steps will remove the battery tray icon and replace it with a less irritating one.
1. Click on the up arrow in the tray bar (near the battery meter icon) and select ‘Customize’.
2. Click ‘Turn system icons on or off’.
3. Set the power icon’s behavior to ‘off’. This will remove the icon from the tray.
4. Download BatteryBar here. After downloading, run the file and follow the installation steps.
5. Once installed, right-click on the task bar, select ‘Toolbars’ and enable ‘BatteryBar’.
Congratulations, you should now be free of all ‘Replace your Battery’ notifications!
