Question about HP G60-230US Notebook

1 Answer

New battery is charging but laptop dies the second cord unplugged

Hi,

Please help!

I have a one year old HP G60-230US Notebook PC. My old battery was running only 40 minutes between charges, so I got a new one. The new battery was running just fine, then it decided to quit on me. Funny thing is that it charges up fine. This very moment, as I sit in the airport, plugged into a wall, it is

95% available (plugged in, not charging)

but every single time I unplug, POOF! Instant black screen, and a complete restart from scratch when I plug back in.

I have removed and returned it, and even sprayed with contact spray and blew with the can full of air.

I'm suspecting that maybe the new battery, even though it's supposedly a true HP replacement, is too loose? The button to eject it is a little flaky. Would being a little loose allow it to charge, but not run the laptop? It doesn't feel loose ... it sits in its ''cradle'' snug, but who knows if the contacts are tight ...

Any ideas?
Thanks!

    Thanks, chael890, but my battery isn't drained at all. In fact, it's now at 100%, fully charged, but I can't take advantage of it! I can only use the computer plugged in ....

Bro I think it was drain becuase of it's quality and it is easy to destroy through unwanted electrical charging of battery. but if you have waranty of your battery who can change it to a new one.

    bro try to get the resistance if the battery can absorbed a DC voltage to insure that if your battery has a problem use via analogue tester according to each prat symbols and if you'll get 2.5 above the battery resistance was still OK but if you'll get 2.5 below obviously it is drain or damage.
    Advice don't plugged your battery if you are using live current.
    You've better wait till the battery fully charge.
    God Bless...

My laptop goes off when I unplug the cord from laptop!


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. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.

My laptop is not charging. i plug the power in but still doenst charge. im not sure if its on the power cords or on the laptop please help asap i need my laptop for school :(


Does the laptop work on AC ? Is the battery or cord/charged a replacement? First, try another cord/charger of the EXACT same specs as original. Second, Is the battery good? How old? Over 4 years? Have it tested. Beware of inexpensive aftermarket batteries and cord/chargers. I assume the laptop works on AC? If you unplug the AC , with battery in, the laptop shuts down immediately?

MD781 battery wont charge...will run with the power cord plugged in, I replace the battery first thinking that may be the trouble. Still wont charge...it would run for a short while on the battery when...


Hi

Can you please try to leave laptop switched off
plug in laptop and leave until the light on front goes green or at least 2/3 hrs

then unplug power cord
switch on laptop and use it or leave it until it looses all power and switches off

then recharge until green

when battery is fully charged always un plug and use on battery power
until it reaches about 10% before recharging

some people even remove their battery to preserve it if they always use power cord

if this does not sort the problem please come back to us

many thanks

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.

My Hp Pavilion Laptop says: 0% available (plugged in, charging)


Unfortunatelly, not much you can do!
Most likely it is up to the battery.

Such things are not unusual. My friends laptop battery died at once (just like yours) in about two weeks after he bought it. Fortunately, it was under warranty and battery was replaced with a new one..

Normally it takes time the batteries come weaker, but even then, they can keep laptop running for some short time (seconds to minutes).

The laptop battery is made of a group of batteries, (maybe six or nine) and it is possible that only one of them is completelly dead. That makes a break in the battery circuit, means no other battery can be loaded with power, and that's why you don't have a second of battery power.

You may try two things:

First unplug the power and unplug the battery. Check if some dirt, dust or corrosion is on the contacts of the battery or contacts on the laptop.
If so, carefully try to clean it, and then try to charge.

Other thing you can try is to go to the shop you bought your laptop (or any other shop) and ask them if they have one on stock, to check if your laptop will work (even for seconds).
If so, than you have to buy a new battery.

At the end, please DO NOT OPEN your battery. Nothing you will find inside. Replacement of the batteries inside will NOT WORK !

Regards.

My Hp laptop battery showing red color and the condtion is not good


How old is the laptop? If it's older then 1 year it's just getting old. I recommend taking the battery out when it's plugged in for long periods of time. Batterie's that are being charged all the time will die faster, of course this wont help you now, but for future ref. I hope this helps.
