Question about HP Pavilion dv1000 Notebook

1 Answer

Battery life is very short

I have an HP Pavilion dv1000 .. i always plug the adapter when using the laptop and rarely run the power from the battery ..

i've noticed that the battery dies in around 10 minutes when i try to run the laptop without the wall adapter.

i remember with an old ASUS laptop, the battery had something similar and the solution was by having a BIOS software that runs removes the power from the battery and brings it back to life somehow! .. is there something similar with HP?

Thanks,

Not really. What happened is you shorted the life of the battery by always having it plugged in and in a charging state. The battery has a memory and since it's always been plugged in, it will never charge fully. There are products out there that will drain your battery down and reset the memory issue. But it would be cheaper to get another battery. If you are going to keep it plugged in the majority of the time, charge up the battery and remove it.

You may take it to a tech center to fix it or buy a new charger. As for the cost, it is almost the same. So it is better to get a new adapter.

It wont come on. it wont turn on


Hi,
Try a hard reset. Sometimes it works and is always the first step to take.
Remove the battery and the ac adapter plug from the laptop.
Press and hold the power button for fifteen seconds.
Install either the battery and A/C adapter .Now just press the power button to attempt a boot into the OS.

Hope this helps.

My hp pavillion was no power, please give an advise.


There could be a problem with the battery. A fast check to determine whether you have a problem with the power adapter, power cord or the laptop's battery is to turn off the laptop, remove the battery, connect the power adapter, turn on the laptop & see if it works.
If the laptop works directly from the power adapter with the battery removed, then the power adapter is good. In this case we can suspect that the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
To verify this, unplug your laptop & try to run it on battery only. Watch out how long it will stay on (if at all). If it didn't work on battery alone, or worked but for a very short time, then your battery is defective.

When should you change out your laptop battery?


Laptop batteries life will vary depending on use. In my experience it is suggested to replace the battery within 3 years. This depends on your requiring the battery.

If you wish to work mobile then a new battery makes your investment a tool, and should be considered.

Power issues on HP DV1000


It is possible you have two dud batteries. Recharageable batteries have a limited life, they have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles.
With the battery removed and only the power supply connected and the laptop powered up, when you touch the connector on the laptop and the laptop does not shut down then the laptop connector is OK.

If you can verify your new battery is OK the the fault could be the power supply adapter, if may not produce enought current to run and charge the battery. Try charging the battery overnight by turning off the laptop and leaving on the mains t charge. Borrow a mains adapter and test it on your computer.

You can also check the BIOS setting for power management, ie. hibernate, low power shut down etc.

HP pavillion dv1000 won't charge


Try using your laptop without the battery and just using your power supply (new universal or your old one).
If your laptop works on just mains power it means your battery is causing the problem, which is not unusual.

No power


Try purchasing an original adapter. I've had several machine of different make through my shop that the Targus adapter just simply won't run. For example, a Dell Inspiron 1100 and HP dv4000 won't run at all, and a Dell Latitude 1501 and Gateway crv503 will run but won't charge the battery. Targus adapters are junk, if you can, get your money back.
