IMPORTANT: Notebook (Laptop) Computer Battery Recalls (Updated)

Filed September 29, 2006 at 6:01 pm.

Updated – Gateway and Sony battery replacement links added.

If you or anyone you know has a laptop from one of these manufacturers, please follow their instructions to find out if your battery is one of the recalled ones. If it is, turn off your notebook computer, remove the battery, then plug it in using AC power and do not use the battery until it is replaced. All these batteries were manufacturered by Sony and have a defect that in rare cases could lead to explosion or fire. The recalled quantity of batteries is by far the largest for Dell systems, but several other computer companies are offering free replacement of potentially defective batteries. If you need help following these instructions, please contact RyAnd Computing – visit
