    I could not find a related topic so let me start a new one.
    I have received a few weeks ago a 6 cells battery (official) from Acer through a reseller. However, while the battery does last much longer than the previous 3 cells one, it does not appear to be detected in windows (appears as unknown) and it does not display how long the battery is supposed to last.

    Furthermore, the "low level of battery" LED is always blinking, probably for the same reason, even at full charge.

    Any idea how to fix the issue or is this is a hardware problem with the battery ?

    Thanks for your help.

    Solved by BIOS update.
