Question about HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook
If I have the charging cable in the laptop dv9000 it says it is charging but really is not. It never fully charges then when I unplug it the laptop turns off instantly. I just got a new charging cable and new battery. WHAT IS WRONG?
For those of you having the problem of a HP laptop shutting off when you unplug the charger and your battery is fully charged, I can help you. There is nothing wrong with the laptop, battery, or computer, it is a power management setting. If you go to display properties, select the screen saver tab, then click the "power" button, in the power schemes field is a drop down window, click on it and select "Rixane Power Scheme", it is a power switching utility that quickly switches between AC and Battery when the power cable/charger is plugged in or unplugged while the laptop is on. If you have it set to "always on" it will shut off when you pull the power cord, even if the battery is charged. This will also happen on many non-HP laptops, if you don't have a HP laptop or there is not a "Rixane" option available, select the "Portable/Laptop" power scheme. Hope this helps!

I had the same problem at the same time you did. I found the answer on google. It is the bios. Update bios to f .23 A You can download it at the link below. After you download it close all open programs and select run on the download. It installs the new bios.

If you just got a new battery AND you got a new AC charger, then your laptop has a charging defect. Check to see if any of the contacts are missing/broken (that touch the gold contacts on your battery). If that looks fine, chances are, that there is either some physical problem inside (short/broken connection) that is not allowing a charge to flow down to your battery.

I had the same problem with my samsung. I created my own power plan settings and now it works perfect. It doesn't switch off when I take the charger out.
If your laptop turns off when you unplug the charger, try changing the power settings before anything else - that's my personal advice. It's worth a try! :)
