Hp primary internal battery error 601 at boot


I was using ubuntu 12.04 and a file transfer was going on when i saw the battery applet was showing 1 min remaining. I immediately shut down the laptop and when i plugged it after some time, from that moment onwards at the boot time this message is showing up for 15 sec –

HP Battery Alert

I am sure the battery is just fine since it is working just fine. I also tried removing and inserting the battery again several times. I tried fully charging the battery but the message keep showing up. How to solve the issue or atleast diable the message and boot normally. It is happening at the boot time before the os loads.

I also tried to do this but the in system diagnosis the battery test option is missing.

My laptop – HP PAVILION DV6 6155-TX

Unfortunately HP has had several battery recalls over the past few years. Tech forums are filled with HP 601 error complaints. I spent about 30 min researching your issue with no success. I believe your battery will need to be replaced.

You can try unplugging the laptop - removing the battery - and holding the power button down for at least 60 sec - restart

On most laptops this resets factory configuration defaults and may clear the 601 error. It's a shot in the dark, but you never know.
