    I have 2 Acer Aspire 9300 5349 PC and bought new batteries. The original batteries were 11.1V 6 cell 4000 mAh (model LIP-6198QUPC SY6) and should also take the 8 cell 14.8V 4800 mAh. When I insert this battery the indicator light flashes from green to orange and doesn't detect the battery. The battery also doesn't recharge. I also bought a 14.8V 4400 mAh battery that does exactly the same. The original still work, but only lasts a few minutes. Is it perhaps the charger that's not suitable for the higher 8 cell voltage? (Model PA-1900-04 Output 19V 4.74A) Please advise!

    I have the exact same laptop and I'm encountering the exact same problem. Have you gotten anywhere? Will flashing the BIOS help? I'm about to return my new battery.

    There is nothing you can do. I got an external charger (so I can at least use the 4 batteries I'm stuck with) to charge them. Acer only recognise their approved batteries. Go to the Acer site and check the model numbers of the batteries that are compatible. Then go on-line and buy the same model number battery for cheaper. You'll get them for half price! Flashing the ROM won't help. Done that! Good luck!

    You were correct about the BIOS upgrade. It had no effect. Thanks for your help.
