New battery runs down fast

Averatec AV 3250 HX 80-AMD Athlon XP-M2200+
3 years old
Battery ran down fast so bought new one( Averatec ) one $100
Installed and plugged in charger overnight.
Power meter said 99% charge on new battery.
Unplugged and ran on battery power.
After 10 minutes battery power meter said 56% remaining. It shut down after about 25 minutes total. Battery indicator then said 1% charge. The battery I replaced lasted longer I think but even new I don't think it ever ran more than an hour maximum.

Re: New battery runs down fast

Bad battery.. RMA that back to where you bought it from. probably wasnt a new battery they sold you. id charge it from completely dead to completely full one more time and if you dont get at least an hour out of the batt then i would return it..

New battery HP g61 is fully charged but not working \

Maybe the AC Adapter Power Cord is not working. If you can't get on the laptop with the power cord then it is bad and the battery might be drained so you have no power source to power up the laptop.
If the laptop works only off the Power Cord and the batteryis not charging, then the battery is dead.

To check to make sure the Power Cord is working remove the battery and let thelatop run for 10 minutes or so.

To check to see if the battery has any charge left in it put the battery in andremove the power cord. If it won't boot or shuts down then the battery is deadand needs to be replaced if the power cord is ok.

1050 EB-1 not charging batteries.

Give Fremontek a call (I have no affiliation with them)
They know Averatec's better than anyone else I know, and can frequently diagnose via phone.

My bet is that youmight be able to "reset" or may need a power management board.

What is normal cpu temp for a HP Pavilion ze4600 Laptop

Maximum operating temperature for CPU AMD Athlon XP-M 1800+ to 2200+ is 90-100°C (194-212°F), so 149°F is the normal temperature. Of course, the lower the temperature, the better for the CPU.

Computer does not turn on when I press the power button

do u have the power adapter plugged in, or are you using battery power? the first thing i would try is disconnecting the battery. just compleatly remove it and set it aside. then try starting it with the adapter plugged in. sometimes the batteries go bad and are corrupt. i had this happen to a compaq laptop a few years back. after i got rid of the battery it worked fine. if it works u can always buy a new battery.

Fan/Overheating issues averatec 3200 series Laptop

Fans on laptops run when the CPU is taxed. The more its taxed the louder it will be due to higher fan speed. The laptop over the years has gotten bloated with programs and stuff that gets in and stays on your hard drive. The more programs running in the backround the more the CPU is taxed. Try uninstalling useless programs first, empty your recycle bin, delete temporary internet files and cookies, run the disk cleanup utility then perform a scan disk and a deframent. Also you may want to add more memory to your system if it needs it. I use crucial's website ( to scan the computer and tell me what memory I can use in my machine. Hope this info helps you out.

New battery will not charge

Hi, Well, first, do you have the correct ac adapter?It's possible to have an adapter that will run the system, but not provide enough juice to run the machine AND charge the battery. Did you replace the battery with a brand new one? Thanks
