My laptop displays "not Acer battery" and does not accept my non-OEM replacement battery. Can this problem be overcome, using this non-OEM battery, or must I get an (expensive) Acer replacement? The laptop in question is an Aspire 3690 .
Thank you,
Derek

I don't think it will be possible to get this battery to work. You should contact the vendor of the battery regarding this, if they say it is compatible with your model of laptop, then they need to let you know how to make it work. Unfortunately, PC manufacturers use techniques like this to ensure you buy their batteries.
