✔ Best Answer
If the battery is attached to your laptop & you see a red cross on the battery icon, it usually means the battery has reached the end of it's life so you need to replace it with a new one. Don't be tempted to buy a cheap one from a third-party supplier as many of them are not made to the same quality as the genuine ones and will cause problems (such as your laptop not recognising it). They also often fail in a very short time.

Get one from your laptop manufacturer via their website (most laptop manufacturer's have a link on their support pages to buy a new battery. It will cost more than a non-genuine one but the extra cost is worth it.
