If you are using a dv series pavilion Notebook and is preinstalled with Windows XP, you need to download the HP Battery Health Check utility from the link below and run in the Notebook to know the status of the Battery :
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp41501-42000/sp41862.exe

Follow the instructions to perform Battery Check in the Notebook :
Insert the AC power adapter into the notebook PC and plug directly into a wall outlet.

Click StartAll Programs, then click Hewlett-PackardHP Battery Check.

If the Battery health status is good, I recommend you to check with updating the BIOS by checking with the Product Number of the Notebook.

Why doesn't my hp notebook charge?


If the laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.

POWER SUPPLY & BATTERY PROBLEM
If the laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. When you connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED light up? If not then - The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's power socket could be faulty. Check power adapter's DC plug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced. If the adapter is OK then connect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard. This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

My dell 1545 inspiron wont operate on the battery works fine on charger and battery icon shows 100% and charging but as soon as power removed laptop immediately powers down. physically measured battery...


I think that if it's 100% it should say that it's fully charged.There could be something wrong there.

My computer blinks with a red icon on the printer saying that the it's recommended the battery be replaced when the battery goes bad. It shows 100% charge as well.

I just got a 9 cell battery off of Ebay for my Acer Aspire that lasts 3 or 4 hours and is a little big, but fits the contacts and locks on.

Battery is 100% charged but when i unplug the cable the computer goes off. Why?


The batterycould be old.
lithium batteries does not go dead when old
You simply cannot get the energy it stores.
That isthe draw back with them.
Other wise they would probably last forever.

1) if battery damaged.
2) if battery internal circuit out of order.

open the battery case then if u have proper idea about AVO meter operation then u can check battery by measuring battery current (per cell) plz. then u can find out which battery is out of order, another think is u can check it by replacing saim battery unit.
thanks.

Occasionally a defective battery will show charge and not work at all. HP has the same problem on some models. Try a different battery and if it works, then the battery is defective.
