Laptop plugged in but not charging the battery

My laptop CQ60 153EM has a problem since i purchage it. Does not mater if the machine is on or off but when i plugged the power the charging light does not show and if i am on the vista the problem is the same, no charging light and the power meter shoes that is not charging. If i wait for long time, sometimes 1 hour or more is starts charging but is very strange. I assume that the issue ir not software related because if the machine is off i have the same problem. Not sure if the problem is the battery or not. I have the machine since January 2009.

Re: Laptop plugged in but not charging the battery

Hi,

 

I bought a HP Pavilion DV9000 (17 inch) laptop from US on April 2008. From past 2 weeks, my battery is not at all charging.

 

The battery icon in the taskbar shows "1% available (plugged in, not charging)"

 

I have tried re-installing 'Microsoft ACPI-Complaint Control Method Battery" as mentioned in lot of forums. I have also tried updating BIOS and Vista 64-bit to the latest versions. The issue still remains resolved.

 

Please help me out here..

 

Regards,

iblues

Re: Laptop plugged in but not charging the battery

Your battery could just be dead. There are a finite number of cycles that any rechargeable battery can endure and getting more than a year's worth of charges is simply a blessing. Count on needing to replace it once a year (mine's been going strong for almost 3 years now oddly enuff). That said, the battery could still be fine and your charger could be the issue. Any breaks or pinches in the line? Also, check the HP supprt site for battery recalls. It's possible you have a unit that has been affected by one of the recalls. Get the battery info off your battery first and then look it up online to see if you might qualify for a new free replacement battery. Namaste.

Re: Laptop plugged in but not charging the battery

  1. Shut down the laptop with the battery in and plugged in.
  2. Remove the battery.
  3. Reboot the machine.
  4. Wait for Vista to come up and show the power icon.
  5. Reinstall the battery.

Re: Laptop plugged in but not charging the battery

If that does not work, I would suggest a battery replacement.

Re: Laptop plugged in but not charging the battery

hp laptop is not recognizing battery being plugged in.
laptop is under service plan at bestbuy, brought it in, they said it was fixed it without replacing anything (they took it apart and put it back together and now  it works, they said items shifted around).

Re: Laptop plugged in but not charging the battery

Check the power cord. A friend of mine was complaining her CQ60 wouldn't charge unless she jiggled the plug connection at the laptop. She thought it was the battery and ordered another one but found it was still not charging correctly. I looked at it and confirmed that the cord had one loose connection at the barrel plug. The cord was easily fixed by slicing a concentric circle around the plug about a 1/2 inch down from the rubber end and then peeling it off to expose the two wires. I found one wire broken from the solder joint and thus not getting a good connection. I drilled a small hole into the metal barrel to make a better contact and then resoldered the wire into the hole. I then super glued the concentric section I sliced off and then put a piece of 1/2" 2:1 heat shrink tubing ($1.25 on eBay) around it and shrank it around the repair. It's fixed and due to the black heat shrink tubing, you can barely see it was repaired. Hope this helps!
