|The 2025 has a 160 mAh rating while the 2032 is rated at 220 mAh. Both are 3 volt but the 2032 has more oomph to it. Usually that just means it'll last longer.|
After putting in the new one did you go into bios setup and set the date? Sometimes when the date is at bios default it assumes the battery is bad and gives that message.
It's also possible the battery socket is bad or as Stuart mentioned, it may not be fitting right or the socket may have broken solder joints on the motherboard.
But yeah go ahead and replace it with the 2032. It'll last longer so it'll be longer before you have to go digging around inside the laptop to replace it again.
Edit Oh, let me ask, how easy was it to get to that battery? A relative has an N4010 that's losing time and will need the battery replaced.
Don't forget to preorder your Hatch green chili for this fall. Many vendors ship world-wide. Better hurry. They're picking and shipping now.
