Help! My compaq laptop cq 60 is 2 mos. old and has a problem. tells me plugged in but battery not charging.the adapter is lite up etc.. yet battery isnt charging. then on occassion it will start charging. i have no clue here. please help!
I had the same problem on my CQ60. HP battery test showed one or more cells not working. After spending about 2 hours talking to some guy in India,or somewhere, he came to the conclusion that my battery was bad. HP sent me a new battery, which fixed the problem.

The problem could also be the power cord. A friend of mine was
complaining her HP CQ60 wouldn't charge unless she jiggled the plug
connection at the laptop. She thought it was the battery and ordered
another one but found it was still not charging correctly. I looked at
it and confirmed that the cord had one loose connection at the barrel
If it is the power cord you could purchase a new one or repair it like I did below:
The cord can be fixed by slicing a concentric circle around the plug about a 1/2 inch down from the rubber end and then peeling it off to expose the two wires. I found one wire broken from the solder joint and thus not getting a good connection. I drilled a small hole into the metal barrel to make a better contact and then re-soldered the wire into the hole. I then super glued the concentric section I sliced off and then put a piece of 1/2" 2:1 heat shrink tubing ($1.25 on eBay) around it and shrank it around the repair. It's fixed and due to the black heat shrink tubing, you can barely tell it was repaired. Hope this helps!
