New battery will not fully charge

I have a DV6113 laptop from HP. The original 6 cell battery (2 years old) would not hold a charge. I bought a new 12 cell battery and installed it. It will only charge to 45%. What do i need to do to get it to charge to 100%? I have let it charge overnight and then fully discharged it and still it will only charge to 45%.Thanks for your helpDave

Hi, I have three possible answers!

A.
You're computer may not be capable of charging the full 12 cells. (Its only supposed to have 6). So you will only be able to use half the cells. In this case there is nothing you can do apart from just enjoy the 6 recognised cells.

B.
You computer has not fully recognised the 12 cells so you may need to install drivers from the HP website. Or alternately if you know how to and or have the original windows install disks. Then you can re-install windows and it will probably recognise the new battery properly.

!WARNING THIS WILL ERASE DATA - YOU NEED TO BACK UP YOUR STUFF!

C.
The third option is that the battery is duff, take it back to where you brought it and tell then the problem, they mey be able to help you or give you another battery.

Instructions

1
Determine if the laptop battery is defective. While less than 1 percent of batteries are defective, the possibility is still there. If the battery is new and only charges some of the way, it may just require a BIOS update to charge fully. New batteries that refuse to charge at all may be defective. Purchase a new laptop battery to replace the defective one.

2
Test the laptop power adapter to see if it's faulty. Run the laptop directly from the laptop power adapter and without the battery. If the laptop does not work with the adapter plugged in, the adapter is dead and you will need to replace it. The laptop battery may refuse to charge if the adapter is faulty. Charge the battery with the laptop turned off.

3
Insert the laptop battery into another laptop to test it. If the laptop battery charges in another laptop, the laptop's motherboard may be bad. Replacing a motherboard in a computer can be very expensive. If the cost to fix the computer is not worth the cost of replacing the motherboard, consider purchasing a new laptop.

4
Reinstall the battery to ensure all connectors latch properly. The latch mechanism that holds the laptop battery should click into place. If the latch does not close, remove the battery and examine the compartment for signs of damage.

5
Troubleshoot the BIOS to determine if there is a hardware problem. Turn on the laptop and immediately enter BIOS setup by holding down the "Del" and "F1" or "F2" keys, depending on the make and model of the laptop. When the BIOS screen appears, see how long it takes for the battery to charge down. If the battery does not last as long as the BIOS setup, a hardware failure may be the problem.

Hp dv9700 2 years 6 months old,bought at Costco.It will not come back on the lights blink for one second and just a Blank screen,no help from costco or hp


Hi:
Unfortunately, the HP DV9700 series is part of a group of HP laptops that has a known motherboard problem. HP actually extended the warranty on them from one year to two, but yours is beyond that. It is repairable, but usually at the expense of a new motherboard. If you do an internet search of your model, you will see lots of others in the same situation.

Lenovo n100 is 10 minut after power off.


If you are running on battery power and it powers off, then the battery is not fully charged or the battery is worn out or faulty.
Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and after 2 or more years they will lose its charge capacity until it will not charge at all.
A new battery will solve your problem provided the charging circuit in the laptop is OK.

Battery and/or overheating or ?


It is possible that the battery is not charging at all and can't pass electricity to the board. But if its 3yo, its probably really dead.

Also, if you can see a fan not working at all, overheating is also possible.

It is also possible that there is a tiny foreign object capable of conducting electricity, such as human hair, that gets activated at the slightest movement of the laptop by shorting some pins on your board.

So I would suggest to observe more or clean the inside of your laptop if you know how to remove your keyboard.

Battery not running


Possible that whoever replaced your battery sent you the defective one back. Note the serial and model numbers on the battery, then request another one. When you receive the replacement, do a full recharge. Most new batteries come already half charged. Even in this state, take time to fully charge it (between 4 and 8 hours depending on the type and model). Then try running it on battery power. If the charge holds more than 2 hours on a new battery, youre good; less than an hour new, its defective. If after all of this still not resolved, request the company honor their warranty (usually a limited one year with purchase).

My Hp laptop battery showing red color and the condtion is not good


How old is the laptop? If it's older then 1 year it's just getting old. I recommend taking the battery out when it's plugged in for long periods of time. Batterie's that are being charged all the time will die faster, of course this wont help you now, but for future ref. I hope this helps.
