Re: hp laptop battery problem
You won't like this solution--your battery is bad or your motherboard is bad. If the battery does not charge, it could have acquired a "memory." That is, it sees itself full when it really isn't and it will run down very fast. If the battery doesn't charge at all, it could be the motherboard. One other thing you could try is cleaning the contacts on both the battery and the computer. This may help--could be dirty contacts are preventing it from working correctly.

maybe you have ac or dc adapter problem try to bend the wires back and forth while you're laptop is plugged in, and see if it is charging whenever you move the wires. if not, your whole charger (ac/dc) is damaged/broken or your battery is. if your unit is still under warranty have it replaced instead of spending money for something under warranty.
Kind of vague. It could be the port on your laptop where the charger plugs into. It could be bad, or could have a bad connection to the motherboard due to use or manufacturing defect. When the charger stops charging then it has to use the battery power. This morning the battery may have had a low charge causing the laptop to shut down. Did you notice the battery's power level before it shut down? If you are wiggling the end of the charger that is plugged into your laptop to get it to start charging again, then that is most likely your problem. Do not wiggle it , for it could fry your motherboard. If that is the case then that port needs to be re-soldered.
Sounds like the battery needs to charge and the power cord is loose in it's plug. is this possible? Carefully try to discover if that is the cause. DON'T reef the power plug around in it's hole. It's possible the connection is isn't staying in contact in the plug. Try gently holding it in place awhile after turning on PC, so you can tell if that's it. If so, you may have to replace that jack. There's a video online that shows you how in very exact detail, or you can take it to the shop. I don't recall where i found the video, but I Googled to find it. Google is your friend. Sometimes when it does what you describe, it works to unplug, take out battery, press power on for 2 minutes, then replace battery & cord. That resets it. Worked with my Dell about 15 times, then it stopped working, as my power jack needs replaced. I got a new battery before I knew that. The jack is famous for this problem. the battery can't charge if it's not getting power.
Batteries have a mind of their own! Turn the laptop on and let it run the battery down completey. Don't worry about losing data as laptops, when set up properly, have a small sector on the hard drive that stores an image of the hard drive in machine code. Run the battery down, re charge it with the laptop and repeat the routine at least 4 times. This should increase the likelyhood of an extended life of the battery. When batteries are left charging permanently, they lose their charge life. Hope this helps.
Laptop not charging
if you have a brand new battery and it is not charging, check the charger
you may have to replace the plug on both sides, check the cables.
you can take the charger to a TV repair shop and tell them to check it and see if there is any juice (charge) coming out of it. that is a common problem with chargers, we trip over the cable or pull it out of the laptop by accident and it brakes little by little.
if there is no charge coming out you can star by checking the jack you may have to cut it and have them check it again.
if you don't want to go trough the whole testing, just tell the TV repairman to fix it it should cost you about 30 bucks instead of 80 for a new original charger or find a chinese one on e-bay
if it works for you don't forget to rate me
Hopefully the battery is just confused and needs to be reset. Drain the battery down until the system shuts off automatically, then take the battery out of the laptop for two minutes and plug it back in, and connect the AC adapter, let it charge without turning the laptop on, then turn it on and hopefully it should work fine again. If not then you may need to buy another battery. Try again with another AC adapter just in case because you don't want to replace your battery (expensive!)
