HP/Compaq :: HP Pavilion DV-5T 1017NR Charging

May 13, 2009

laptop charging problem.

In order to charge the laptop battery, I "must" have to shut it down for around 3-5 minutes. Then it starts charging (and if i boot up after 5 minutes, then it also shows charging with charge %age increase in Windows).

But once I unplug the charger and charge it again in the Windows environment, it doesn't charge (Windows shows charging but the charge percentage does NOT increase).

Strangely, In order to charge it, I have to just shutdown it for sometime and then restart.

Its like Maybe some component or battery getting too hot that if i Shutdown, then it cools and starts charging and life is normal; but if it's too hot, then it doesn't charge.

All the LEDs of charging/AC supply are showing fine. If I remove the battery, then I can easily work without trouble on AC supply. The situation seems to be the same on Ubuntu Linux as well..

I have experienced this problem on two different machines now. It's just very strange.

Should I buy a charger with more output watts or something?

My specs are:
HP Pavilion DV-5T 1017NR
NVidia 9200GM
Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit

Do batteries have refractory periods .. seems like mine one has

HP/Compaq :: HP Pavilion DV 7-1050ea- Charging

Jul 18, 2009

I've been having this really weird problem with my charging my laptop lately. I can't pin down the problem, whether it's the battery, the Jack or the AC adapter.

Basically, when I charge my laptop it will stop charging at random. But then If I plug the AC adapter into a different power outlet (or wall socket) it will start charging again! But then once again after a short (or sometimes long) period of time it will stop charging. Then, stranger again, if I switch back to the original power outlet I was using it will start charging again.

This problem is just repeating itself and sometimes I have to search for a socket until it starts charging again. It has me pretty frustrated at the moment because the laptop is new since Nov. 2008 so it's not even a year old yet.

HP/Compaq :: Battery Not Charging --HP Pavilion Dv5000

Mar 11, 2010

Battery will no longer take a charge. I can use a different adaptor and I have the same problem. I can take the battery out and re-charge it in my Presario v5000 without any problem using same power brick. ergo no battery or power brick problems.

HP will only run on battery power. When power is plugged in green lite flashes and battery icon says it is charging, but it is not.

It will not run on AC.

HP/Compaq :: HP Pavilion DV6-1160en Charging/Battery

Sep 10, 2009

I bought this HP Pavilion DV6-1160en laptop about 4 months ago and it was working wonderfully until recently. The problems started a few weeks back when I was playing NBA 2k9 and the screen started going dim and back to fully lit and back to dim every 20-30 seconds...

I rebooted as I expected it to keep doing that even with the game off.. and when it came back on it worked just fine. There are no problems with it until I start playing a game (any game, not just nba).

When playing I kept an eye on the light next to the charger connector and that was blinking along with the screen... so when I got annoyed I just changed the battery settings to keep the screen fully lit while on battery.. until a few days back the laptop went to hybernate in the middle of me playing a game because the battery died (although the charger was plugged in and the light on). The battery charges to 100%, holds a solid hour and a half, HP battery check rates it at 'good'..

HP Pavilion Dv6500 :: Battery 0% Available - Not Charging

Feb 7, 2013

I have an HP Pavillion dv 6500. I am having a similar battery issue that has been discussed in other posts. The original battery "died" a couple of Months ago, and I purchased a new one from HP.

Now the icon in the System Tray shows "0 % available (Plugged in, not charging)". I installed the HP Support Assistant, and ran the Battery Test, The result was: Status: "Calibrate" and Current State: "Unknown".

Problem is that part of the "Calibrate" procedure is to allow the Battery to charge-up (to 99 to 100% charge), but I am unable to accomplish that, since the battery is not charging - the charge remains at 0 %, and never seems to charge.

HP Pavilion Dv6 1050us :: Charging Battery Is Not Showing As Plugged In After The Bios Update

Sep 28, 2014

I have a Pavilion dv6-1050us and prior to updating the bios as recommended by HP my charger would show both in the taskbar as the battery was charging and it was plugged in as well as on the led on the front left of the notebook.  Since the update of the bios the charging icon in the taskbar no longer shows and the led light that shows the battery is charging no longer lights up.  I know there is power going to the battery because the battery shows 100% remaining and will only discharge after I unplug the power supply.  Is there a way to restore the bios to the previous verion even though the bios was flashed by the program HP uses? My antivirus program will not do it's weekly scan when the system thinks it's running on battery power.  I must manually start the scan myself.

Dell Inspiron 6400 :: Battery Not Charging But BIOS Shows It Charging Normally

Jun 19, 2012

I have an older Inspiron 6400 (looks like the 1505) that isn't charging the battery. The bios indicates that the battery is charging, and that it is performing normally. There isn't a red flashing battery indicator, but when the laptop is powered on there isn't any "green light" indication of the battery, either. The AC adapter performs normally ( Charger is a PA10 (90watt) and it works fine on my D800, and charges that battery normally).

What I don't understand is why the BIOS indicates the battery is charging and that the battery is performing normally. However, when I have the system up and running there isn't a green battery indicator light on the button strip. Let me clarify that statement. During the initial boot phase of start-up there is the green indicator light on the button strip, but as the OS finishes loading this light goes out and the battery doesn't charge.

Could this be caused by a faulty Bios update, or is it something with the battery charging circuit of the motherboard? The laptop operates normally when using the AC adapter, just no indication of the battery charging when the OS is fully loaded. OS is Windows XP Pro (SP3).

Dell XPS L502x :: When Charging Reaches At 86% It Stops Charging - Orange Light Is Blinking At Battery Icon

Nov 17, 2012

My Laptop is 1 year and 5 months old. There are 2 problems I am facing with my battery:

1) When it is charging, at around 86% level, it stops charging and I see an orange light blinking at the battery icon and it continues to blink unless I turn the power off and allow the battery to discharge for a while.

2) at around 45% to 50% level, the battery level suddenly drops to 7% level and then I have to charge again.

Because of these issues I now use my laptop as a desktop. It is always plugged in and I use the option of "Stop Charging" in the windows power settings. how to solve the problem.

Dell Inspiron 1525 :: Plugged In Charging But Battery Not Charging

Oct 12, 2010

I have had my Dell Inspiron 1525 for around two years. For the past month, when my power supply is plugged in, the battery does not charge. It has been stuck on 3% and will automatically shut down when unplugged.

I have seen that this is a very common problem, however, when hovering over the battery icon it says: plugged in, CHARGING, where as all of the other posts that I have seen say: plugged in, NOT charging.

I have tried taking the battery out and restarting but this did not work. I also drained my battery and tried to recharge but again, this did not work. My initial thought is that I may need a new battery but I just wanted to check first.

HP/Compaq :: Use Laptop While Charging

Feb 10, 2010

I just wanted to ask that can I use my laptop when it is charging i.e. connected to AC mains? Some people say that doing so reduces the battery life. Whenever u have to use it on main line, remove the battery and then use. But its too cumbersome 4 me coz most of the times, I use it at home where ac line is available.

Is there like a sign to show that it is fully charge... because when I leave my DV6-1253ca to charge overnight, the little light beside the power outlet stays on the whole time.

HP/Compaq :: Charging Board

Mar 26, 2009

I plug in my adapter and it turns on and all is well once I put it in the charging port to charge the battery of my computer the adapter shuts off immediately. The charging port on the computer is slightly cracked from a fall about a year ago but it recharged perfectly fine until now. I've had 2 other adapters go out on me the original and an aftermarket and now this one is acting up on me. After a bajillion trys if I get the charging prong at the exact right spot it'll charge the battery if I push it in too far it shuts off etc.... Is this a circuitry connection problem? Does it have something to do with the cracked charging port? Is it an electrical short? Is it another bad adapter? Is it a bad battery? Is it a bad "charging board"? Which of these is most likely the case?

HP/Compaq :: Battery Full: Charging Cut Off

Aug 30, 2009

I just recently bought a 12-Cell battery for my DV2730.

My original 6-Cell battery fails to charge anymore so my laptop would not power up just on battery power.

I'd like to know more on how to take better care for my new battery, and so my question is; does HP laptop, cuts off charging when battery is already full? Because i noticed that the "charge/lightning LED" does not stay ON anymore when battery is full. Is this a correct indicator? Or should i remove my battery when running on external power?

HP/Compaq :: DV5tCPU Downclocks While Charging

May 3, 2009

When I use my DV5t off the charger I typically put it in power saving mode which downclocks my CPU to 0.80 GHz. However, when I plug it back in and change the power plan back to high performance, the CPU remains locked at 0.80 GHz while my battery is charging. The CPU remains locked at 0.80 GHz until my battery reaches roughly 85-90% charge, and then the CPU kicks back up to the full 2.40 GHz.

This can be quite annoying when I want to play a game or watch something in HD because I have to wait for the battery to charge if I don't want stuttering.

I figured it was an advanced power plan setting under the Processor Power Management tab, but everything I have tried has not fixed the problem. I have also tried searching through the forums, but have found nothing relating to this problem.

what is causing my CPU to downclock?

HP/Compaq :: Battery Not Charging While Plugged In

Mar 13, 2010

i have my computer (win 7) set to high performance. I also keep it plugged it but it hasnt been charging my battery, its down to 35%. Does it have some sort of a cycle function where it waits until the battery is drained and then charges it back up? I dont want it to do this because when i need to use it on the go i would like a full battery.

HP/Compaq :: Battery Plugged In, Not Charging

Aug 12, 2009

I've got an HP Compaq nw8240 and when I move the mouse over the battery icon it says Plugged In, Not Charging. It only shows a 40% charge too, and if I unplug the AC adapter the battery will drain and then recharge back to 40% again.

I'm running the latest version of Windows 7 also.

I've also tried updating the BIOS but when I download the file from HP's support site it and run it all it does is restart my computer and nothing changes.
