Your battery pack has a typical life-span determined more in hours of use than by length of time owned. When they're near the end they won't hold a charge. This happens with cordless phones, cell phones etc. Batteries also come in different sizes (capacity/lifespan). People also use their machines and batteries differently - so it's hard to compare with someone else. When you get a new battery, get a higher capacity and use the power cord to keep the laptop charging as much as possible. - hope this helps :)

If your laptop is 10 months old, I highly doubt it is the battery. If you purchased it new, I suspect even more that it is not the battery. I would personally try the battery if you really think it is the problem because it is an extremely cheap thing to try, but it is my opinion that you need to take this laptop to a shop and get it looked over...

REplace the battery. It sounds as if it is exhausted.
Do you leave it chargeing all of the time you use the laptop? If you do, that is why it is exhausted. Batteries like to be used and drained from time to time.
Unfortunately, they don't recover.

Are you turning it off at night or just using sleep mode? Turn it off!

Also if you use them on AC power most of the time the batteries tend to hold less and less of a charge as time go's by. You should use them on and off with just battery till it's almost dead, it will hold a better charge then.

I purchased my tx1019au new June,07. Global guaranty costing US$350. p/yr Jan, 08 WLAN card failed, HP Service center first declined to honor warranty telling me to mail it to the country of purchase....


The NVIDIA GPU (Graphics Processing Unit), located at U20, sharing the heatpipe heatsink with the main processor, has an issue with the reflow soldering to the motherboard.
If you can find a good PC board shop that mounts BGAs (Ball Grid Array parts, have them resolder the part to the motherboard.
Quanta Computers, of Taiwan, built the boards originally. (http://www.quantatw.com/Quanta/english/service/serviceinfo.aspx) They sell new MBs for $400. If you can get the NVIDIA part reflowed, it will probably cost less and work better.
The heat of operation causes the part to lift from the motherboard, causing separation of the solder joints, and intermittancy, or a complete failure with increased temperature - these parts are designed to run pretty hot.
Good luck.

Blue screen again wont start up


dv9000 are notorious for failing, even when repaired. The newest model to that, maybe the G70 or even the G60 is a good replacement. Even if the laptop comes to you with Vista, Windows 7 will over-right and install over it with no problens. I was one of the Beta Testers and never had a failure during an update....the new operating system is absolutely loaded with all kinds of device drivers, so you should be good to go.

DELL XPS 1210 i purchased a replacement battery not recognised


If the battery is not detected in the BIOS (F2 at boot) and doesn't show as charging, then return the battery and get a replacement.

If neither the original battery or the new replacement battery are not detected in the bios a problem with the motherboard may exist. If still under warranty, contact Dell Support for a repair, if not, then you may be investing in a new motherboard

Dell 600m Laptop Killing batteries


If you are using known good batteries, and you have the most current BIOS Flash, then it is likely a failure of the charging curcuit on the motherboard. The flashing Amber (Some people see it as red) led indicates a failed battery

The Multiple good batteries, I assume have been recently purchased, because computer batteries are consumable and are rated for 300 to 500 charging cycles before they wear out.

I replaced my 700m motherboard with one from Ebay for about $170.00 about a year ago.
