Re: battery life on Pavillion dv6000

You can test the battery by downloading the HP Battery Check program, the program is located here:

If that does not return an error, and your laptop is under warranty, consider having the laptop checked by a HP Authorized Service Center. The warranty can be checked here:

    I have the same problem with the battery life on my HP dv6000.   I have used the suggest battery check tool, but it failed to identify a problem.   (software looks cool, but doesn't seem to do anything!)    I have  a problem with my battery holding a full charge (about 10 min then it's dead), it's just old.  Most rechargeable batteries can only be charged up to about 1000 times before they fail hold a charge.   This is the one thing about laptops you have to keep in mind, the battery will fail eventually and you will need a new one!
