Question about HP Compaq 6710b Notebook
Try downloading the latest bios for the laptop, i had the same problem of windows reporting that the battery was fully charged when it was actually empty, a bios update fixed the problem

Because your battery is new (though it is six months old), it is recommend
for you to take your battery into calibration. What your battery meter
said didn't match the actual charging for your battery. Of course, believe that not the quality of the laptop battery cause this
phenomenon. Maybe the incorrect judgement of the BIOS result in such
problem. BIOS give a wrong conclusion when your laptop has a little
power, but it forced to shutdown your notebook. What you need to do is
just to re-calibrate your battery. You can do it follow this, At first,
boot your computer and then press "F two" to enter the Power menu. Once you
enter this menu, you'll see the "Start Battery Calibration"option.
Then, Press the "enter"button and implement it. The screen will pop up
like this"Please plug-in an AC adapter to supply power. Now, It will
recalibrate the gauge of your battery.
Of course, if you need a new battery replacement, you can visit compaq 6710b battery

Looks like a typical battery problem.
If you payed something about 40$ for your battery, it means that you have bought a cheap one with bad cells in it. They do not last longer then half a year.
The original (good ones) cost smth above 70$ and they last about 2.5 years.
I do not recommend you to reflash a BIOS, especially if you are not that familiar with the process. If the power cuts of (and your battery is dead), your PC will become a brick of plastic.
The problem is not BIOS: everything worked well and then one day just broke. Really? This is not the way how this works.
I vote for a dead battery.
