    I've used Amazon for phone and laptop replacements. Get one that's reviewed OK and it should be fine. The link has your model number.

    Thanks for the help..

    I opened the battery pack up and all the cells measured 3.9v with no load.. I loaded the cells a couple times and plugged the pack into the computer and it reads low percentage charge but when pulled out it still read 3.9v .. I am not sure whats going on..

    Ok Update time for Christmas...

    I kept playing with the batteries and the computer would tell me the batteries are dead but upon testing they where acting fine with ok voltage and would recovery from a high current load .. I also ran a software program and it told me the cell where fine but just not charging... I am not sure who right or wrong but the cells prove they are holding a charge and when computer reads dead batteries the cells are at 3.9vdc.. My buddy said the control board might be bad or the computer is miscalculated So I have a new keyboard coming with the original but used HP charger and a used battery.. I also picked up a used Intel Pentium Dual core T4500 chip to upgrade from Intel Celeron 900 2.2ghz.
    The reason I choose the chip was cause my MB came with this chip from the factory so this means no bios issues cause of unsupported chip.. I was going to go higher but not sure if the chip would work with the bios and I got the chip for $6 bucks shipped and the other chips where triple the price with marginal gain...


    Thanks
