      Guide Steps

      Step 1 — Registrar los datos originales del sistema de gestión de batería

      La batería ya está demasiado gastada para recalibración.

      Step 2 — Usa tu computadora portátil

      No hagas nada con datos irremplazables que pueden perderse. Solo enchufa la computadora portátil para iniciarla desde un bloqueo BIOS.

      Step 3 — Enchufa tu computadora portátil

      Si bien es seguro usar tu portátil, la exactitud de la calibración podría verse afectada.

      Step 4 — Verificación de resultados luego de la calibración

      Este procedimiento podría dañar una batería que está casi en el final de su vida.

      Step 5 — Verificación de salud de la batería (Windows 10)

      Reemplaza la batería si la capacidad es inconsistente.

      Step 6 — (UEFI BIOS) HP 15% omitir bloqueo

      Esto descargará la batería por completo. El diagnóstico de HP no verifica la carga de la batería.

      Step 7 — (Legacy BIOS) HP 15% omitir bloqueo

      NO apliques esta configuración a tu OS principal. Podría dañar la batería.

      Step 8 — (Error 0190) Omitir la batería críticamente baja

      Enchufa el adaptador de corriente en tu portátil. POST debe finalizar para que el sistema arranque.
