Hi there you can right click on the desktop go to the power settings and look for the battery and do a status check on it if it is discharged or low and it has been plugged in for a long time and the pc has been showing that it is being charged i would probably say that yes the battery is going bad

HP dv6000 laptop not charging problem, adapter, battery and power jack looks like it works fine


If your battery, charger, and DC Jack are ok, then the most common problem is the surface mount transistors on your HP's main board called MOSFET's. They are small 30V N channel 8 pin components soldered to the main board. The boards also have transistor circuits which switch back and forth between a charging and discharging state. However these rarely ever fail. The MOSFETS fail because of the thermal loads which they must endure. Although some notebooks (like the Gateway I'm currently on) have a DC jack which serves dual purpose of supplying DC 19V AND connecting/disconnecting charging circuit. However your HP dv6K does not.
However it's worth mentioning that these models have had all sorts of problems...most notably poor thermal design to begin with that usually creates solder connection problems with the main chipset especially on AMD models. Good luck.. :)

Try draining the battery completely and then charge it fully with the laptop switched off.

First I would check both the battery and the ac adapter with a multi-meter. If this does not solve the problem I would check the connection where the power plugs into the computer. If everything is tight and secure (no loose connections), I would say the machine will need to be opened up to inspect and test the internal components. Good luck!! I hope this information helps you in solving your problem.

Hi, my laptop crashes when the ac adaptor is plugged in yet it will charge the battery fine when the laptop is shut down.


Problem description: The laptop shuts off when AC power adapter is plugged in. The laptop works fine on battery power but as soon as you connect it to AC adapter, the laptop turns off.
Possible cause: 1. Power adapter failure.
2. Motherboard failure.
Possible troubleshooting steps and repair solution: First of all, test the power adapter. Make sure the adapter outputs correct voltage. It's possible that the output voltage is not correct and the laptop shuts down to prevent the damage. Test your laptop with another known good power adapter.
If the problem still exists, even after replacing the adapter, most likely it's the motherboard failure. Replace the motherboard.

My laptop was working just fine, then one day I went to turn it on and nothing happened. It may have shut down on its own by running out of battery.


Hello,

Remove the battery, plug it in and try the power button again. If it powers on, connect the battery and you are good to go. If still no good, have someone test the power adapter with a voltage meter. the power adapter may be dead. You can also go to a store that sells universal laptop power adapters, and test with one of them (with the battery removed.

Let me know what happens as I may be able to help some more.

Regards,

Joe

Says plugged in not charging


Take out the battery and make sure you can turn on the laptop with just the AC Adaptor hooked up.

If you can then you know the AC Adaptor is good. Try another known good working battery in the laptop, if the battery charges then you know that the old battery is bad.

If the laptop doesn't charge with a know working battery or a new one then you know that the motherboard is bad.

Shuts down


Is this laptop brand new? Because normally, when you plug in the power adapter, the battery charges up to 100% and stays there UNTIL the power adapter is unplugged. Then it will start to run down its power. It's not supposed to run down with the power adapter plugged in. Also, if you take out the battery and only plug in the power adapter, it should work fine. If it doesn't, then there's a problem with the adapter.
