    Thank you, In fact when I received the battery, laptop did not turn on. Left the battery charging for few hours and it can support the start up and few minutes working, but was no recognized by the system.

    I installed the HP Battery check which indicates that battery has 77% of charge and need to be calibrated. I followed the the calibration procedure, I left the laptop working untill it turned off (about 6 minutes).Right now is impossible to charge the battery because laptop did not recognized it. This procedure was repeated in another identical laptop from my son and nothing happened.

    I have read that BIOS shall be updated, but I prefered reset it taking out the Bios battery, because in a previous experience I have lost a Desktop updating the BIOS, so I prefer not to do it. It seems that manufacturers know this problem but is a better marketing strategy not to do anything in order you buy a new laptop.

    thank you again, and if anyone have a different idea, I will appreciate.

You may need to have that battery charge for a while, until it can be seen at charge level..or simply check the connections to see that there is no junk in the connector..

    hmm..recognizing the battery is a three step process..the fact that you can see it on your control panel, eliminates one of those options. Methinks that the 'term' recognizing your battery, is what I am missing here. How exactly is that happening? Control panel? or the power options icon there?

    or it just simply not showing up in the lower right tray?

I have an older Compaq Presario V2000. I recently had a new hard drive installed with windows xp professional. The S video port won't work when I connect it to the TV.

Make sure the most up to date video/chipset drivers are installed. You can get these at HP's support site listed below, just choose the appropriate V2000 model from the list (your exact model number will be printed on the bottom of your laptop) and download and install these drivers.

Your DVD drive is missing the Burning Program not the driver. I found an update for your windvd software for windows 7 but you probably have to have the full program installed to run the update. Hope this helps.

Battery not charging...but is recognized by V2000

My guess since the battery checked fine in another laptop would indeed be the charging board or charging circuit on the motherboard.
