Until 100%. Anyway, new smart batteries now do not need to charge overnight like the old Nicad batteries. You can charge it and use it at the same time and this will STOP when 100%.

Thank you for your query, I will do my best to assist you.
I grasp you have replaced the original battery with a 12 cell and are still receiving startup error 106.
Here is a link to the maintenance and service guide for your notebook Compaq Presario CQ62 Notebook PC and HP G62 Notebook PC Maintenance and Service Guide. Please note page 35 item 16 for the recommended replacement batteries.
Here is a link to Purchasing a Replacement Battery which has links for testing and calibrating the battery. I would suggest you try that step as it should resolve the issue for you.
Please let me know the results.
