Dell included administrative templates with the Feature Enhancement Pack which deals with all these massages. To utilize them do the folowing:

1. Copy all *.admx files in C:\Program Files\Dell\Feature Enhancement Pack\policydefinitions to C:\Windows\PolicyDefinitions;

2. Copy all *.adml files in C:\Program Files\Dell\Feature Enhancement Pack\policydefinitions\en_US to C:\Windows\PolicyDefinitions\en-US;

3. Run Group Policy Editor - Click Start button and in the Search box type gpedit.msc and click the result;

4. Browse to Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> System -> Dell -> Feature Enhancement Pack -> System Events and double click Battery in the right pane;

5. Select Enable radio button and checkmark Battery helth degraded for this particular massage;

6. You can get rid of any other massages there as well;

7. Click OK;

Done.

The message means what it says - the battery needs to be replaced (or will, soon).

There are two registry keys for that:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Dell\DellControlPoint\PWR\DisableBattPopUp_Primary_Caution
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Dell\DellControlPoint\PWR\DisableBattPopUp_Primary_Replace

The default is 0. Change this values to 1. This was working on my system.

I had to search for "EnableEBLNotif". I found two instances. One was 0, the other 1.

After changing the value from 1 to 0 the notification disappeared.

(Added note: but on the next day the notification showed up again....:emotion-6:  )

Business class computers: Click the start button, type the word "regedit" and click on it, then under the edit tab choose "find" and type in the word "Primary_Caution" change the default value from 0 to 1, then do the same for the next entry below "Primary_Replace". Then go to file, and exit. Shut down/restart, and you are good to go.

Non business consumer product: Follow above instructions, yet it may be easier to find "DisableBattPopUp". There you will also notice 2 entries that end in the same as above "Primary_Replace" and "Primary_Caution"

Unfortunately Dell's quality has gone down dramatically over the past 2-3 years, purchasing cheaper grade equipment even for the high-end business models. Don't expect a Dell branded battery to last much longer than the warranty. DO NOT purchase a Dell branded replacement battery... there are cheaper batteries available with twice the warranty!

I tried searching for Primary_Caution and Primary_Replace but regedit could not find the entries.  I am using a Precision M4400 on Win 7 64 bit and have also Installed Dell Feature Enhancement Pack.  Any ideas?

Unfortunately all fixes via the registry are not permanent. I have received many messages that the same notification reappears the next day. Others have deleted entries in the registry, without success. I have contacted Dell several times on the issue, and their "knowledge base" offers a fix through the Dell ControlPoint System Manager settings. I tested the fix with Dell, unfortunately this does not solve the notification issue either.

I can only suggest living with it for now, as it does not harm your computer in any way. If it really bothers you, buy a new battery which will stop the notification. Please remember, do not buy another low quality battery from Dell. A Google search will help you find bettery batteries at half the cost, with a 2 year warranty.

Uninstalling QuickSet from your Programs will also remove the annoying message..
