1)try to check also if you'll see a solid GREEN LED light on your ac adapter.if yes, possible problem could be on the battery port or the battery itself
2)With regard to the battery meter,where did you find that?If not in the BIOS,try this.restart computer and press F2 several times .Once you're inside the BIOS.try to go to the battery option-try to see if the battery indicator would say 100% also.
3)if 100%,try another battery if you have one.use only the battery as the only source of power..if a known good battery works then the problem is with your old battery.if a known good battery won't work,that would mean that you have a problem with your battery port.if that is the case, you may have to replace your motherboard for that but if you still have an active hardware warranty on your pavillion dv 4000.try calling the manufacturer for a motherboard replacement and try asking also if your battery is part of any recall.
4)if the battery meter in the BIOS does not say 100%, try charging the battery for an hour then go back to the BIOS try to see if the battery meter would go up.if it increases the battery meter try using the battery as the only source of power...if nogo,go back procedure 3.
