How is the hp pavilion dv4 battery life

Was concerned about the hp pavilion dv4 Battery Life as well, and I still am. I haven’t done too much testing yet, but from my initial usage I am seeing around 2 hours with general usage (browsing the Internet, using messengers, doing a video chat for maybe 30 mins) There are settings to change between conserving power and system performance so you can adapt it to what you like. I imagine with Power saving mode on and light usage it will get over 2 hours (but not near 3 hours) with High Performance mode and heavy usage (photoshop, gaming especially) you would probably get an hour maybe 1 1/2 hrs.
besides those laptop battery issues this is a wonderful computer and I’m very impressed. It runs very fast and speeds through everything I’ve thrown at it (Including large photoshop files that take my desktop over 30 seconds to even load)

do you know what BIOS is?
when you turn on any PC BIOS runs, first. (before Windows boots)
it prompts you with text "hit F10 to enter setup" or ESC key.
if that is dim and the brightness keys are dead (max = dim)
the CCFL are dead now. as all are those old.
first they go yellow, then dim then dead.
DV4 is old and has CCFL backlamp tubes that most now are dead
after 20,000 hours of usage.

the list of used Laptops or monitors not to buy or own.

the parts are not cheap nor is the labor to do this.
gander this.

my hp pavilion dv4 freeze when windows logo screen


We ran a typical HP Pavilion DV4 battery of tests, including games, applications, and a couple other areas. Time constraints limited the amount of testing we could get done before the NDA lift (and it's already a few hours late), but we will be providing a follow-up article with further testing and information. That said, if there are any specific areas that you'd like to see tested, feel free to e-mail me or leave a comment.
