I had the very same problem with a HP Pavillion DV4 laptop and the problem was inside the battery - one of its cells became defective and the charge did not last more than a few seconds - it also showed a 100% charged icon but the battery was depleted in seconds.
Before buying a brand new battery you could check with a friend that has a similar laptop if he/she can lend you his/her battery for a few minutes and check whether the laptop keeps on or not with that other battery. In the case it remains on, it is the battery for sure, and you will need to buy a replacement one. Check the link below, for one option.
Unplug the battery and plug in the AC power plug into the laptop;
Does the laptop start up and stay on?
Then put the battery in WHILE IT IS ON; See if it starts charging.
If it does not; You have a bad battery and need to replace it.
If it does start charging here's what happend;
Some laptop batteries if they are fully depleted on charge will not let you power up the laptop EVEN IF the power cable is plugged in. In some cases the PC won't turn on at all.
The reason for this is because the battery must have a certain % of charge in order for you to start the PC even IF the power cable is plugged in.
By removing the battery we eliminated the battery as being a cause for this issue; Once the PC is up and running in windows.. LET THE BATTERY CHARGE! You'll want at least 10% charge minimum for the PC to start up.
If however the battery replaced still doesn't hold a charge it's going to be the AC Adapter power cable that's causing the issue.
Best advice start off with the power cable replacement first; This is the cheapest to fix; Otherwise the battery can cost in excess of $50-$150 or more. But universal AC power adapters can be cheap $70 or less which varies depending on laptop.
Symptoms of a broken power jack 1. If you wiggle the power cord or the AC Adapter connector on the back of the laptop, the power LED and battery charge LED start to flicker. 2. Battery will not charge in the laptop. 3. Laptop runs fine off a charged battery. 4. With the AC Adapter connected the laptop appears to be dead. No power LED or battery charge LED activity. 5. Laptop randomly powers off without any warning.
If your laptop is out of warranty, then you can fix the problem by re-soldering DC-IN jack on the system board. If it
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.
The baterry does not get charged if the computer has been shut-down. It will only charge from your AC adapter only after you have simply started your laptop and let it be idle for a couple of hours. Its advisable to use your AC power adapter as much as possible when using...........sodeep
Is your laptop connected to a power source? If not it needs to be recharged... Check also the battery of your laptop, it might be dead already... meaning even if it is charging the battery doesn't charge anymore... it may need replacement.
To check the battery... remove it from the laptop and find a flat button to check if the battery is charged, or half charge, or none at all. If below half then the battery needs to be replaced.
