No idea but I would assume the system has a loose connecxtion with the battery. If it is otherwise working OK I would ignore it.
But I would look into getting a new battery perhaps?
I would try researching it on your computer maker's support section.

If the electronics in the battery are fried (short-circuited or browned out due to a power surge) the battery can be rendered dead and undetectable by the laptop PC.
