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.

HP Mini 2140 "Plugged in, charging" but not charging

Hello jorel, most likely its a failure of the system board particularly the charging section, a broken pin or a loose terminal. work will be internal, suggest you do away with the battery. its better to operate it at home, or bring the charger with you. Maybe its time to get a new one.

HP dv6000 laptop not charging problem, adapter, battery and power jack looks like it works fine

If your battery, charger, and DC Jack are ok, then the most common problem is the surface mount transistors on your HP's main board called MOSFET's. They are small 30V N channel 8 pin components soldered to the main board. The boards also have transistor circuits which switch back and forth between a charging and discharging state. However these rarely ever fail. The MOSFETS fail because of the thermal loads which they must endure. Although some notebooks (like the Gateway I'm currently on) have a DC jack which serves dual purpose of supplying DC 19V AND connecting/disconnecting charging circuit. However your HP dv6K does not.
However it's worth mentioning that these models have had all sorts of problems...most notably poor thermal design to begin with that usually creates solder connection problems with the main chipset especially on AMD models. Good luck.. :)

Battery won't charge at all

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.

My battery was working fine yesterday. But then at night it a red x appeared on my battery life icon. It's telling me I need to replace my battery. Why would I need to do that all off the sudden? I've only...

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.

Hi, I couldn't say what's wrong without looking at it but here are a few things to try:
First, be sure that there is power. some laptops report 'plugged in' simply because the plug is in the computer. Check fuses etc.
Second, remove the plug and then remove the battery. replace battery and re-plug the charger. This should reset the electrical system.

Hope this helps,

Plugged in & not charging with new battery

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

Sounds like the battery was on it's last legs to begin with. The charger appears to be working correctly. Try to reach some agreement with the seller over replacing the battery (not cheap!).
