Question about PC Laptops
While reinstalling OS in EVO N 160C, the main power through power adapter got disconnected in spite of the warning. Again I tried fresh OS installation. OS was installed without any problem. All the softwares and hardwares are working properly. Battery has the back up for 3 to 4 hours. the same battery is working in other laptop properly. but this laptop it shows only 0%. I think the problem is in laptop only. But laptop detects the battery properly while removing and connecting. Measurment of voltage maty be wrong.
1. battery problem after os installation.
2. Laptop detects the battery but showing only 0%
3. Same battery works in other Laptop of same model well.
4. Suggest me how to carry out the calibration of battery.
5. Pls suggest me if the problem is because of some other reason.
Looking for your reply
Lithium Ion batteries aren't something that you can really calibrate unless the laptop has a utility in the bios to do so (ASUS laptops). You either have a motherboard related malfunction in reporting the battery life as you say it does report in another laptop, or you need to update the ACPI driver which you can get from the manufacturer's website.

First remove the battery and run only on the adapter... If it works fine then there is no problem with adapter...... Charge the battery continuously for 4 hours without seeing the percentage of charging and remove the adapter..... If the laptop runs on battery for 45 mins then it might be the problem with drivers..... Go to device manager and reinstall the drivers if it is less than 45 mins.... Reinstall the drivers either ways...... If still the problem persists.... Go to HP.com and and select software and driver downloads and give the product number.... select the OS... Select HP battery check.... Download the file (sp32299.exe) and click save.... Save file onto the desktop and close the site..... Run the exe file.... If it passes the battery is fine... If fails replace the battery....
The steps might be longer..... But i can assure that it will work
