Compaq Presario Battery wil not Charge

I started noticing my battery life span dimmishing months ago. It got to the point that the battery would not charge anymore. I ordered a new battery on thanksgiving day and it didn't work. The new battery had 60 minutes and it was counting down. The charge would hold if the AC cord was plugged, but it would not charge. Battery went down to zero % and I returned it thinking the battery was defective. I now have the new one and it's doing the same thing. The icon shows it's charging, but it will not increase the percentage at all with the old, the first or last replacement. I have to have the AC cord plugged in, in order for it to work.

What could it be?

My Gericom laptop want start

Even with the advancements in portable laptop batteries, they still only have a specific life span. The battery will charge the entire time you have it plugged in and these charging times are called cycles. Even the best battery you can by will only perform optimally over a certain number of recharge cycles. When you start noticing that you no longer have the same amount of time on a full charge, your battery is on it's way to needing replaced. Some suggest that you allow the battery to run down as often as possible to extend the battery's life, but with today's battery, often won't make a difference.

Every time i try to charge the battery the camera only stays on for a short period and i have to keep turning it on Why?

This is beacuse some digital camera comes with a very short battery life span. So the more you charge it or over charge it, you are actually decreasing its life span.If you look at your battery you might notice that it is swollen around the center indicating that it is faulty.
Try buying new battery and see the difference.
Good luck and thanks for using Fixya.

I have a compaq presario cq series notebook, that i got back in april, and it has quit charging, the ac adapter still seems to work, but it quit charging, the light that shows its plugged in sometimes...

1. Take the battery out. Start the computer with just electric. Is it dependable? If so, replace battery.

2. After leaving it plugged in 4 hrs (good outlet). Un plug it and try to use it. Failure indicates battery failed to charge. If test #1 passed replace battery.

Compaq Presario CQ60-215DX. Doesn't start

You will need to buy a new battery, there is no way old one will be OK. To see if it works, remove battery, and use wall adapter ONLY, PC should work fine. If not maybe Flat CMOS, replace, If replace and still NO go.must be bad motherboard (maybe try charge battery 5 hours left alone)

I have similar problem

The battery is too low for the power adapter to charge it and power up the laptop at the same time.

Remove the battery. Start the computer using the power adapter (no battery).

Once the operating system settles.... put battery back in and let it charge up.

Hope this helps!

Compaq Presario needed a new battery was installed labtop will not charge up!

When you install a new battery and remove a battery always make sure the laptop is completely shut off and have the power cord removed so that you avoid any possible power surge.

Batteries generally don't last much longer than a year and I have found removing the power cord or battery when it is off to be a good practice.

Before you charge a battery make sure it is run most all the way down. Recharging a battery when it is not run down can give it a memory and you may only be able to charge it up to the point you started charging it.

Anyway, if the computer won't charge a new battery then you could have a bad motherboard. To be sure try another battery.

Compaq F700 Battery live very less

Its normal, generally it comes with 80-90 min. You can use HP Power management to optimize the use of battery. Making screen less bright will increase the power backup.
