I have read many of the chat on this subject, I also tried many of the remedies, relating to power off removing battery, power up still not charging. So I bought a new battery, same thing. Tried the power off thing again. No love. So I searched for more answers and found the battery check, so I ran it, it says that no battery has been detected. ARRGGHHHH. What's next?
I can't believe this has been a problem for so long and it hasn't been resolved.

There is some info about a product recall and battery recall for the DV9000 at http://search.hp.com/gwukeng/query.html?cc=uk&lang
My battery has always been poor I never even bother to use it unplugged any more, but dont see the pointy of buying a new one as the same thing may happen, as did to you.
I have this laptop which is now unable to restart since saturday - (3 days without my Laptop!) and I have contacted HP.
There seems to be a recall issues so worth investigating before it gets as bad as mine.

I did get a reply from HP UK (well who knows where they actually are) saying it was a hardware problem and out of warranty so tough. They sent me to a website to find a local fixer but none in my area (Edinburgh only has half a million population?) so my own local Laptop service company say that the video graphics card has burned out and as its embedded on the motherboard that needs replaced - cost £440 (Almost 450 Euro).
But if I replace with a motherboard which seems to have a design flaw - or at least a faulty graphics card - then how long will it last? That part comes with a 3 month warranty not even a year, so it is not a good bet. That is around half of what I paid for the HP laptop
Anyone in the UK want to buy a 17" HP DV9000 cost £1,000 2 years ago, value now spare parts if I am lucky and a repair diagnostic bill to pay.
Seriously, trade for parts anyone? I got 2 x 250 gig hard drives and even bought more RAM to speed it up.

Maybe it's your adapter for the dv9000 laptop which have been gone wrong, you can use another adapter in good condition to charger again
Otherwise if you need a new DV9000 AC Adapter, you can look over to http://www.all-batteries.co.uk/laptop-ac-adapter/h
