My battery will not charge even though I just got it about 2-3 months ago from HP while my laptop was still under warranty. When I hover over the battery status it tells me 0% available (plugged in, charging) but no matter what I do it won't charge. I've tried charging this battery on my other dv5t with a different AC adapter, but the same thing is happening. Are there any tricks or anything that I can do? This is a new battery and for it to die after 2-3 months just doesn't make sense. HP battery check tells me the battery health is Good.
I own a Hp dv5t and recently the speakers on the laptop stoped working. the only way i can get sound is by plugging in headphones. It seems the computer is stuck in headphone mode. I've been searching for an answer the past few days but couldn't find a solution.
i bought an hp dv5t laptop about 7 months ago.my laptop battery has been working fine since then.few days back it has has started to give me problems.sometimes it refuses to charge when ac power is connected e.g it stays on lets say 20% even though its been on AC for a long time.well sometimes it charges normally without any problems.also i have noticed that it charging time has increased a lot from about 25 minutes to 40 min. is there anyting wrong with the battery or is my ac adapter faulty?how can i improve my battery condition?
My dv5t won't take a charge. The charge indicator light does not come on and the battery charge indicator graphic in windows doesn't show it is charging (plus the AC adapter isn't getting warm). My laptop is now out of charge and I have no way to use it. I think the connector at the PC end might be loose or something, but perhaps it is just the AC charge adapter.
The reason I say the conenctor at the laptop end might be loose it because I can wiggle the charging plug around in the socket quite a bit when it is plugged into the laptop power socket (the round socket at the rear of the right side). Sometimes the charge plug has weight on it when in my lap since the darn things sticks out so much, and I am wondering if I have caused the socket to malfunction internally (loose lead or something?).
Does anybody else with a dv5t have excessive battery wear? I purchased the laptop in August of 2008. According to hwmonitor my battery can only hold 30758 mwh down from the designed capacity of 47520 mwh. I rarely used the battery. Maybe once a week for 5 minutes to move the laptop.
I asked a friend with a dv5t purchased around the same time and his capacity is down to nearly 27000 mwh. Our laptops are the same except his has the intel integrated graphics while i got the 9600m gt. Also he uses the battery almost daily.
When i first got the laptop i got nearly 2 hours out of it. Now i can barely get an hour.
We both calibrated our batteries a few times by fully discharging and fully charging a few times which did nothing.
I know that batteries experience wear but does this seem excessive? I believe the estimate is about 10% a year. But this is almost 50% wear in a year and a half.
The DV5T is one of two notebooks that I'm considering and I have a question related to the heat while gaming. Many have recommended a cooling pad, and many also suggest simply raising the notebook .5-1" in the back. With the natural lift of the 12 cell battery, would the cooling pad still be necessary for long gaming runs? I don't want to pay the extra $20 for the 12 cell only for minimal cooling gains and still needing to buy a cooling pad. Or is it cooling pads are highly recommending for all laptops when gaming?
I am buying a dv5t off ebay but none of the laptops on there come wit the high capacity 6 cell battery offered on HP's website. Is there any place I can buy one? I've tried ebay but it doesn't appear there are any on there.
Also, model number or serialnumber for the high capacity 6 cell so I can check online for it that way.
I've been looking at the 12 cell battery to go along with my dv5t for the extra battery life. I know that the 12 cells battery raises the back part of the dv5t up quite some bit. Would that negate or 'contradict' the use of the colling fan (Zalman NC1000). Since the battery pack is elevate, the full laptop wouldn't be able to make contact with the cooling fan, correct?
I bought a new white macbook a few days ago. I just noticed now the batter meter says "not charging" and its only at 95%. Is there something wrong with my battery? should I drain it all the way and then recharge?
My p500 shows that it is at 40% and that it IS charging (most of the other stops states that it isn't charging). It could be that windows thinks the battery is charging, but it obviously isnt because when I pull the power plug, the laptop immediatley shuts off. Obviously the battery doesn't have a charge.
I got the latest version of the lenovo energy manager, but that didn't do anything. Also, I don't recall the enery manager being there. I am almost certain that it was not there prior to windows 8.1 upgrade.
Device Manager shows all of the hardware with no missing drivers/unknown hardware.
I have been running the battery conditioner which is suppose to run the battery down and then charge it back up. That has been going on for a few hours and it is still at 40%, where it has been stuck from the start.
My Lenovo G570 battery is stuck at 90%. It says plugged in, not charging. It just happened over night. Next day battery refuse to work.
In windows it says battery 90% and is not charging but battery has no charge at all. When I disconnet the A/C power laptop just shutdown immediately. As soon as I unplug the power laptop just shutdown as there is no charge in the battery.
I did reinstalled the Power management and also updated it. I all unplugged reboot in OS, restart, put battery back and boot into the OS back. Nothing seems to work.
I just installed Lenovo Energy Management in windows 8 before I was trying in windows 7. In the battery tab there are two options
Maximum battery Life Optimized battery Health. It is selected to "Optimized battery Health" and won't change regardless of power plan. I click on "Maximum battery Life" and when I open the app again it reset it to "Optimized battery Health".
Lenovo Solution Center say that battery life is GOOD. "Your battery is in good condition".
I have a problem with my battery on a brand new E430. I've used it for 1 week w/o problems and now it simply doesn't want to charge the battery anymore. It is stuck on 48% and I have a message saying "plugged in, not charging".
EDIT: I run Win 8 (64 bit) - absolutely everything is up to date, including BIOS.
I have a problem with my Lenovo ThinkPad X300 computer. The battery charging stuck at 99% (remaining capacity about 69% and 300 cycles). The Power Manager displays, the battery is at 100% but "status" periodically changes - both Power Manager and Windows battery indicator - between "No activity" and "Charging".
Every time stuck at the same "Remaining capacity". As i noticed during battery user windows and the Power Manager displays different information about the remaining battery level and time.
i have an acer aspire 1642nlci laptop for about over 2 years now... recently the battery (simplo 4-cell) went nuts, and i disassembled it to see if i could do something about it ( the issue was, whenever i'd boot up my operating system i.e XP, the system would stuck, until i remove and then replug the battery in to the laptop)... well i did no repairing, just put the cells out and then back to the casing, inserted the battery into the lappy, and the issue went all by itself... however, 2,3 days later, the battery stopped charging and agonized by the situation already, and while i had my battery(without the casing) inserted into the laptop, i shorted the i/o pins of the battery to each others with a metal... and then the real issue began... my laptop is cursed, it won't start anymore past the initial 'acer' screen... sometimes the lcd won't light up even... pressing f2 helps nothing, keyboard doesn't work... and if you let it stay on for a while, the power indicator leds *both the supply and battery status ones* start to go dim and dimmer... i think i have fried the mother board's power supply area...
I bought my laptop Dell XPS M1330 in September 2009... I have not had problems with this until now. Three days ago I turned on my laptop in order to read a pdf file , but I noticed the my file went constantly down and therefore, I was not able to read it... It seemed like the "arrow pointed down key" was permanently pushed down! So I reboot my lap but I had the same problem. The next day, again, I turned on my lap and at that time the cursor was moving constantly to the left like the "arrow pointed left key" was pushed down!
I tried with Dell diagnostics and this showed me the next errors:
-ERROR CODE 3600:0853 PRIMARY_BATTERY_BAY The battery can not provide sufficient power. -ERROR CODE 2C00:0423 KEYBOARD-Stuck key detected
When I was testing the keys (of the keyboard) this showed me:
Expected: e048 Read: e050....Expected: (something) Read e050.... And so on
Should I have to replace my battery and my keyboard???
I am getting quite scared about my hp dv5t its getting really hot. The cpu is always at 50-mostly around 65 degrees doing normal work. I keep it on a targus cooler sometimes, but when im on campus I can only use the bare desk. I have undervolted the computer and the gpu is fine always maxing out at around 60 degrees and the harddrive is always at like 40. How do I keep this cpu from getting so high? It makes the computer really hot. Anything like undervolting, or anything free would be a + point.
I have been trying to get 5.1 sound with my laptop, i have heard people i think with other models that make microphone jack into a center/surround output, and other have said that its possible with hdmi but i have tried with latest drivers of HMDI that i got (18.104.22.168).
so i've got a dv5t. i have the notebook raised up 6 inches in the back while on a desk, and i've also got it undervolted (down to 1.0250V on the 9x actually) and this machine always runs hot. hotter while in games (which makes sense.) but even while just browsing the net, it gets hot.
I'm considering buying the HP dv5t with the 9200 GPU. I don't really game much. Will I have the same heating issues that I read about on these boards so often? It sounds like they mostly relate to a) intense gaming; b) use of the 9600 card .
