Get a new battery. The life span of a laptop battery is typically only 1-2 years. Check to see if it's still under warranty.

Hp pavilion Dv 7 won't power on even when the lap top is charged.


Pull the battery and plug it in to the wall (in other words rule out the battery). If it still refuses to come on, check out this troubleshooting link:

My gateway nv54 laptop battery is ok, I've checked it in lap-top tech service. But the system gives me a message "consider replacing your battery" or something like that. With a full-charged...


Unfortunately there isnt much you can do, the only real solution that has ever been known to work is to completely drain the battery (I mean keep trying to turn it on even after its died, many many times) and then put in on charge for 8hrs.
Other than that, regardless of what people say, there isnt much else you can do. And I wouldnt put too much faith in any tests these techs have run, its almost impossible to really see what state the battery cells are in.
For future reference, when you are using your laptop plugged into the mains, take the battery out, that wil help prolong its life, and never let it get too hot or charge it longer than it needs (can bend the cell walls)

Laptop needs charging but he battery goes off when


The battery has probably become deteriorated over time. When I see this problem I usually test the battery in a similar laptop, if you can't do the same then go and get the battery tested at a PC repair place. Thanks, Scott.

¿ tiempo de carga de la bateria en lap top por primera vez?


Hello,
Sorry, espanol no hablo

You must let the battery cargar completemente maybe 4 o 5 horas if you are not using the computer (OFF) , and 12 a 13 horas if computer is ON. Don't leave it charged in the computer while computer is connected to the power socket, unless you also charging the battery.
Before charging it a second time, make sure it is completely drained. Some manufacturers (Toshiba) recommend to cycle the battery (charge, discharge) 2 or 3 times before using it.
Every month you should allow it to be drained.

Tu dois laisser la batterie se charger complètement. Cela prendra 4 à 5 heures si l'ordinateur est éteint, et 12 à 13 heures si l'ordinateur est en marche. Ne laisse pas la batterie dans l'ordinateur s'il est connecté à la prise, sauf si la batterie est en train d'être chargée. Certains constructeurs (Toshiba) recommandent de faire subir à la batterie 2 ou 3 cycles charge-décharge avant de pouvoir l'utiliser de façon autonome.

Chaque mois tu dois la laisser se décharger complètement.

Hope it helps.

Lap works but the battery does not charge


oh

maybe your power IC is broken
or something about your power connection

you said The lap top is less than 12 months old,
it's mean it still has it's warranty

if you lost your warranty card
don't afraid
if seal(s) above your laptop is not broken
you still have your warranty

My Compaq Presario C500T lap top won't start


Generally speaking, an orange power light indicates problems with the power. You also described to a "T" how a bad battery behaves. To test this theory, take out the battery and plug in the laptop. It should power up and run. If so, it's time to invest in a new battery.
To be doubly sure, if you have anyone with the same laptop as yourself, plug in their battery to your laptop. It should work if their battery is good.
Thanks for using fixya.com. Please rate this tip accordingly if it provides the information you needed.

Battery


If it runs off of the AC adapter and not the battery, then the battery is about 99% chance the problem. The batteries are found easily on ebay for a reasonable amount. also to reassure you that the battery is the problem do as follows:

Goto the Control panel in the start menu,

In control panel, open Power options

In Power Options click the tab "Power Meter" and see the charge the battery is holding, if it states 100% and you unplug it and it turns off then the battery is dead.
