It clearly indicates that the battery of your laptop has deteriorated and cannot hold enough charge to run the system without AC Adaptor. So, the battery is supposed to be replaced with a new one. I suggest that you buy a new genuine battery (not any replacement), as genuine battery would last longer and serve you best.

GoodLuck!
Dont forget to appreciate the solution if I could have been of any help!

How long do you leave it to charge? What is the battery life of the battery? How old is it? If the battery is old it's going bad, which means you may need to buy a new battery. You can look at e-bay or some computer sites to find a cheap battery replacement. Hope this helps

Hi,
Sadly it seems you have a dead battery on your hands. If it's still under warranty i would advise to activate it and get a new one. If not, you can find cheap batteries on your local dealer (compatible ones may be cheaper but may void your warranty. If possible always use original parts).
Hope i was of any help.

Unfortunately laptop batteries to tend to die after a time with repeated re-charging.
While it may seem like a strange suggestion, it has previously been suggested and i've had luck with the 'freezer method'
Theres a little more info and discussion on it here: http://lifehacker.com/#!308225/revive-a-dead-laptop-battery-in-the-freezer
However simply try putting it in a ziploc bag and putting it in the freezer for up to 24 hours. It won't be as good as new but might perform better.
Alternatively i think the only other option is to buy a new one. you can find many options (depending on where you live) by googling your laptop model number & battery.
hope this helps.

My Pavilion g6-1b79dx notebook will not charge even with a new battery and charger. The light indicating the charger is plugged in is blinking white


When you say it won't charge, does it charge at all?

1. It indicates that it is charging, but as soon as you unplug the charger the battery quickly or immediately indicates it is dead. If the laptop is off, the LED on the laptop shows it is charging but the battery is always dead,

2. It is as if you didn't have the charger plugged in. No light on the laptop at all when the charger is plugged in.

Possible solutions:

1. The battery has died and is no longer capable of taking a charge. An alternate explanation if you can't even get the laptop to turn on even though the laptop charge LED is on, is that the internal power supply that converts the incoming and battery voltage to all the voltages required has died.

2. The power connector inside the laptop is a common failure point. The solder joints break from various minor shocks over time. This is going to become more common with lead-free solder as it is more brittle. Less likely is that the charging circuit inside the laptop has failed.

HP Elitebook 2530 Pindicator says battery charging but battery not charging


Could be a back power brick or DC jack yes. Power off the computer and remove the battery. With the battery out plug in just the power brick and turn on the computer. If the computer doesn't power on gently wiggle the plug into the laptop and repeatedly hit the power button if it comes on briefly then off again you dc jack is loose. If it doesn't come on at all then its the power brick. If the laptop comes on gently wiggle the plug into the PC. Powers off while wiggling DC jack.

My laptop is not charging. it says 0% available (plugged in, not charging) plz help i have a stock hp pavilion dv5


Ifthe laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be wornout. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cyclesand will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up atall. ORThe battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected thebattery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. Ifthe battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to bereplaced.

My laptop is saying the battery is low but I have it plugged in to power. What is wrong? It is only 5 months old.


Bad power supply, your power supply has gone bad and is not charging your unit anymore, even though it may show the charge light is on, the is because there is such a small amount of current going through the system that the icon shows charging, but not enough to charge the battery

I have an hp pavilion dv9350ea. Over a couple of years the battery became defective and I installed a new one. It showed 30% charge. I disconnected the charger to discharge the battery before re-charging...


I have to agree that the battery is defective or maybe it is NOT the correct one for your system, although it may be similar.
Did you buy the battery direct from HP a third party?
The AC adapter charger could be defective as well, maybe the defective battery ruined the charger.
I hope this helps.
Good Luck.

HP Pavilion ZD8000 - Battery


i have the same situation. The workround I use is this...
Method 1
Start the laptop with the mains disconnected
Once Widows is running plug in the mains adaptor
The battery will charge correctly, the laptop will run on the battery if the adaptor is unplugged

Second method if the battery is flat
Start up with the battery removed
Once windows has started - plug in the battery
The battery will charge correctly

I have found no permanent solution so I use method 1 mostly

Charging cable gets hot, charge port too, not battery though


No it is not a problem. The power dissapiation in the adaptor causes it to become hot.
