Method 3: Update the battery driver

You can go to the Support page of ASUS website to download the latest battery driver for your laptop model.

1) Download and install Driver Booster on your laptop.

2) Launch it and click SCAN to detect any problem drivers on your laptop.

Incorrect BIOS settings can cause your ASUS battery not to be detected. To fix the issue, you can try setting BIOS to default.

Setting BIOS to default requires a bit of technical knowledge. If you know how to do it, that’s fine. If not, contact ASUS support or someone who knows how to do it to help with this.


Method 5: Update your BIOS

The last method you can try is to update the BIOS. You can download the latest BIOS from the manufacturer and install it on your computer.

Installing BIOS also requires a bit of technical knowledge. If you’re not sure how to do it or you haven’t done it before, contact ASUS support or someone who has experience on updating BIOS to help with this. Be careful as installing BIOS incorrectly can cause serious system issues.
