Battery not holding charge

Using an hp g6 laptop running on windows 7, last night the battery was working normally. Went to sleep and went on my 100% chaged laptop and the battery life said 55 minutes, I have recharged two more times and it's done the same thing. Anything I can do?

If failed, you need to replcae the battery.

Re: Battery not holding charge

Shane, if your laptop and battery are still under warranty, talk to HP about getting that battery replaced. Also Update the BIOS. If you can get me the product number, I can get you that update. It helps a ton with battery life if its not updated properly.
