HP Pavilion DV1000 not charging the battery

The laptop works OK, the WinXP icon says it is on mains power, and is charging the battery.
But the battery charge is not going up.
Could there be a fault in the charging circuitry? A 3 year old dv1217 old battery wouldn't hold a charge, so I got the 12 cell 3 - 4 months ago, and now it shows "Charging" but never does or go above 5%. The lightning bolt just comes and goes.

Can this be fixed by itself, does it need a new (rehabbed) mother board, or just go through the easy part of transferring all the data files, and the pain of reloading (and getting approval to do so) to a new laptop?

    Extended life battery charges to 9%. Occassinally it will show recharged. Is it the motherboard or possibly a battery dying. How can I tell?

    I have the same problem. Is there a way to fix without replacing the whole motherboard, it costs about £100.

This is going to be a problem with the power management system on the motherboard, it's a common problem. You will have to replace the motherboard in order to fix this. This is a good machine and can be fixed, but if you think it's time for a new one (and can stand the pain) go for it, besides this one will be totally obsolete soon, and you'll probably be ready for a new one within the next two years anyway.

I have a hp pavilion dv1000 laptop and it randomly hibernates


Go to the control panel > Power Options, click on the hibernation tab and uncheck it. Click on apply and ok. Hibernation can damage older HP systems such as the DV1000 that is running XP, make sure it is turned off and also go through the power settings and change the setting for closing the lid on the laptop. Change the setting to "Do Nothing". This will keep your system from getting corrupt.

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.

Hp pavilion dv1000/won't turn on


My HP laptop ran out of juice and wouldn't charge. It was the power connection on the mother board. A computer guy resoderd (sp) it for me and then it would turn on and charge the battery. Not sure if that helps.

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.
