QUESTION :

hi i have a laptop and i am trying to run a software that doesn’t work on the batteries based computers so i there a way to remove windows 7 battery so software will consider my laptop as a desktop

i am on windows 7

ANSWER :

Probably not, since windows needs the battery information to run laptop specific hardware settings etc. The battery is just part of the “hardware”. You might install a guest host through VMware or Virtualbox. These programs allow you to install an operating system within your current one.

I agree with BloodPhilia, the presence of the battery is announced in the laptop’s BIOS and detected by the operating system.

Short of changing the BIOS somehow, your best option is virtualization.
