    Someone who had bought a used notenook asked a few weeks ago about HP
    notebook batteries ... I saw this online which getting other info and
    thought I'd post for any new owners of used laptops: ( I forget which
    newsgroup)

    Computers that may contain the suspect batteries include the following: HP
    Pavilion models dx4000, dx5000, zd8100, ze4100, ze4100/xt1xx, 4200,
    ze4200, ze4300, ze4400, ze4500, ze4600, ze4700, ze4800, ze5155, ze5200,
    ze5300, ze5400, ze5500, ze5600, zv5000, zv5200, zx5000, and zx5200; HP
    Compaq models nc6000, nc8000, nw8000, nx5000, nx6130, nx9005, nx9008,

    including 4 in the U.S. No injuries have been reported. Four cases of
    minor property damage were reported, including one in the U.S.

    What to do: Stop using the battery, and remove it from the computer. Power
    the computer only with an AC adapter. Contact HP at 888-404-7398 or go to
