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.

Hi, my problem was that I had trouble turning my laptop on. It had been getting worse over the last couple of years. It was suggested that the power button should be replaced. While searching the HP site on how to do this, I ran across a solution that said to take out the battery, unhook anything else that might be connected to the laptop, and then press the power button for around 10 seconds to drain all remaining power out. Then put battery back in and try to turn on. It worked! My laptop now turns on and off just fine! Hope this can help someone else....Linda P
