Turn off wifi and anything else you dont need like bluetooth. turn off sounds. also, If you are inferring that this battery gives you less time than the original check it has the same mAh rating and the connections are clean

Hello

Depending on the age of the laptop, you should get a very minimu of 2 hours life from the battery. Return it to whomever you purchased it from.

Tip

Looking for the longest battery life laptop ?


We’ve yet to see a Windows laptop with battery life longer than 5~7 hours, unless we add an extended battery to the system. But when hpand dell launched its new series of laptops last week, one big push wasfor longer battery life.

When you purchase your notebook, charge the battery to 100 percent,discharge it completely, and then fully charge it to 100 percent againto help the battery remember exactly how much electrical charge it canhold. From then on, you’ll never need to completely discharge the laptop battery again, but always make sure when charging it that you let it reach 100 percent. DeHoop told us to “remember to plug in the laptop AC adapter(or dock/port replicator) whenever you get a chance. Most notebookswill recharge quickly.” Salinas had another tip for your batteries:“Keep them cool. Exposure to high temperatures can be a battery’s worstenemy,” he said

Hope the list can give you some help when you purchase a laptop or battery:

Battery problem with HP Compaq Presario V2000 laptop


When batteries fail, they usually lose the cells inside them, which means that the cell is no longer able to function as a holding cell for power and therefore cannot do its job anymore, when a battery fails to hold and refuses charging it is bad and needs to be recycled. The flashing is telling you to purchase a new battery. The larger the number of cells in the battery, the longer and better it will perfrom,,RE: 6 cell, 9 cell, 12 cell.

How to change the battery


hi

its so simple...

  1. Step 1 Purchase a new battery. Refer to your laptop owner's manual to determine the type of battery you need. Compatible laptop batteries can be purchased from computer parts dealers, the laptop manufacturer, or an online auction.
  2. Step 2 Turn your laptop over and locate the battery compartment. Release the lock/latch and slide out the old battery. Refer to your owner's manual if necessary.
  3. Step 3 Install the new battery by first aligning its receptor pins with the pins in the battery compartment. Push down on the opposite end to snap the battery in place. Secure the lock/latch mechanism by sliding it back to the original position.
  4. Step 4 Plug your laptop into an electrical outlet to charge the new battery. It usually takes about 24 hours to complete the first charge. Subsequent charges will only take a few hours.
please rate me...

thank you

Battery does not charge


Will the old battery (that you are replacing) charge up at all? If the old battery charges but the new battery will not, then it's likely a bad replacement battery.

To rule out the possibility of a corrupted battery meter inside of windows, you may wish to leave the laptop on battery power only, until it dies. A 5% charge will usually only grant you about 20 minutes of laptop life maximum. Since you left it charging all night, you should get a few hours of life before it dies. If you get a few hours of life, the battery meter software is corrupted.

Most likely though, the replacement battery is bad.

Compaq Presario v2000 notebook reduced battery life


you may try:
1) check the battery alarm at windows power managment, to set 5-10% alarm level.
2) discharge the battery to the empty then charge longer time, you need monitoring how long it charged (see charge lights change), need to change new one if charging time much less then before(less then 10-20 minutes)..
3) plug-in AC adapter monitoring charging current,
this step you need a current meter to make a series connection in the circuite, the battery is over life cycle if the current less then 500mA.

Hi, My Compaq is getting hot quite quickly after being switched on (about half and hour to 45 minutes, and then shuts down and won't turn on again for about ten minutes. It's only about five months old, is...


you could as well have a bd battery. Check the compaq web-site and type in ur model of computer then try to check if there is any call back on your battery. if not it might be just yours. Look online to see how much a new one is. it also could be your fan. it might not be working. do you hear some kind of air or fan working? it might be to your advantage to replace both battery and fan or just the fan.

lease kindly leave me feedback!

Compaq laptop Evo N410c Battery charging


Hi

 

First remove the battery and run only on the adapter... If it works fine then there is no problem with adapter...... Charge the battery continuously for 4 hours without seeing the percentage of charging and remove the adapter..... If the laptop runs on battery for 45 mins then it might be the problem with drivers..... Go to device manager and reinstall the drivers if it is less than 45 mins.... Reinstall the drivers either ways...... If still the problem persists.... Go to HP.com and and select software and driver downloads and give the product number.... select the OS... Select HP battery check.... Download the file (sp32299.exe) and click save.... Save file onto the desktop and close the site..... Run the exe file.... If it passes the battery is fine... If fails replace the battery....

 

The steps might be longer..... But i can assure that it will work
