Important Safety Recall announced 5/14/2009
HP Notebook PC Battery Pack Replacement Program
May 19, 2010 – PROGRAM EXPANSION
HP has expanded a worldwide voluntary recall and replacement program in cooperation with various government agencies. HP has added battery packs to the replacement program originally announced on May 14, 2009 and revised on October 15, 2009. Product model series were also added to the list of products that may have been sold with affected batteries. The battery packs have the potential to overheat, posing a fire and burn hazard to consumers.

The affected battery packs were distributed worldwide in certain HP, HP Pavilion, HP Compaq, and Compaq Presario Notebook Computers.

To reduce the likelihood that a battery pack failure will cause damage, stop using your battery pack immediately until you have determined whether your battery pack is affected.

To validate your battery, visit the HP Notebook PC Battery Pack Replacement Program website at http://www.hp.com/support/BatteryReplacement. If the validation indicates that your battery is affected, HP will provide a replacement battery pack at no cost to you.

NOTE: The validation process may show that your battery pack is not affected by this recall. Less than 3% of the notebook PC products manufactured from August 2007 to May 2008 and included in the program, contained battery packs that are affected.
