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 :)

I purchased hp pavilion dv6-1337tx lapi over 1 year ago. now from 6 to 17 days i noticed that battery is not charging properly..... when lapi is on battery it just go shut down within 10-15 minutes. and...

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.

Stuck second hand

You need a new battery, as there is not enough power to move both gears. You can send it back to Wenger and get battery replaced or just pop into your nearest watch repair shop and get it replaced. It will cost you $5.oo and will be done in 10 minutes time instead of months of waiting it back from Wenger. Rate me, plz.

I have had my computer about 10 months now and it has suddenly won't charge i have tried everthing what shall i do?

Hi SofaSW !

Is this a laptop we are talking about here or a desktop PC ?

If it is a laptop, they you might have a failing battery pack. Batteries will of course fail over time but as yours has occured with only 10 months, I would imagine that you are still covered by a warranty of where you purchased the computer from.

Give them a call and see what they say. Chances are they'll need information like how long does it stay on for. Does it stay on if the main cable is plugged in. Things like that.

If the battery is failing then they should be able to issue you with a replacement, and that replacement should be covered by another warranty, but be sure to ask if they do replace it for you!

Hope this helps!
