Replacement battery for Sony vaio causing computer to hibernate

\015 I have a replacement battery for sony vaio sz260P. Periodically, a warning pops up that the battery may not be compatible. I am required to click ok, which puts the computer in hibernate. I remove and reinsert the battery, then start again. That used to work. Today, however, the warning keeps coming up. The battery is less than 4 months old. Is there a way to shut off the warning or is this a bad battery or because it is not an original battery? or what? any help would be appreciated.\015
