Problem with my hp notebook battery!!!

On battery power my notebook hardly runs for more than an hour even if i dont do excessive stuff win media player or games. even if i just run c language or view some pics on my notebook,battery lasted for the same duration.

it's been just a week since i bought my new hp pavilion dv5-1106ax notebook n it has win vista 32 bit.

Also,today when my battery charge went below 10% n after applying a.c power i cud not see a change in the battery charge meter for a long time n when i ran hp battery said replace.
but again after half an hour when battery was charged to a considerable amount....the same test showed battery condn, as GOOD.
do i need to calibrate my battery?

i hope my battery has not gone bad within such a small duration of time!!!

From your description it sounds like the main motherboard is intermittent, and it can only get worse, with the warranty you have left I would not waste any time in returning the laptop. I would demand a replacement simply because you are dealing with a high intermittent problem that will be difficult if not impossible to track down, and even if they find it you will never be sure if the computer is really fixed.

dv4-1120us Notebook
if it runs with no battery , then its ok. see?
(does not prove internal charging chip is ok, see?)
but PC is ok on A/C line so use it. in A/C power.

learn too that letting any battery die flat , can kill it.!
best is to not walk away from any LT , running on battery only.
or risk damaging it. (the laptop tries hard to not do that but is not perfect science ,yet)
read up on cell reversal.. never flat line it on purpose and win !!!

next learn that batteries are short lived..
last a few years others months, that is what batteries do.
even car batteries can fail fast. (ask and old guy that)
all batteries are what I call "weak technology" "fails fast"

or imported from china, and are junk,. many are. so....
I always have 2 batteries, that way , having 2 good batteries
if one dies, its totally obvious, no? whats UP?
i have 2 batteries, too, so when on vacation, I dont go dry, see?
On some longer trips i carry 3, that is what laptops do best.
run with no AC jacks about.

Laptop Screen goes blank

Are you running on battery or AC? Try using the power cord, remove the battery and see if it continues. I have seen a battery that is on its last legs do some weird things to a computer. Also, check your power management setting. Control panel, power, and set the computer to "always on" just to see if it could be a power management setting. If none of this works, i would back up all your files, and try to reload win xp from scratch.

My amd processor

I wouldnt be too concerned about the "heat" especially since it doesnt get 'hotter'.

Drivers are software programs that make your computers parts work properly with Windows (or any other OS as appropriate)

Goto hp's website and get the drivers ..

It could just be the battery, they all fluctuate .. the only way to know is get another battery or accept the battery life time and enjoy your 'puter.
