Battery wont charge

My battery stopped charging, I spoke to the HP tech people and they did a diagnostic test and said it was the battery.  I purchased a new battery, that worked for about 2 weeks and now it isn't working.

I recommend you run a hardware test on the battery and if the issue reoccurred on a new battery, this could be an issue with the motherboard/DC port for the charger, please also, try with an alternate power adapter and another wall outlet:


The maximum capacity of a battery changes over time. Because of this change in battery capacity, the charge level indicator in Windows might not show 100% charged. To know the condition of your battery, use the steps in this document to test your battery and calibrate it if necessary. Calibrating the battery resets the battery gauge to accurately display the charge level in Windows. In this document, two methods of testing and calibrating the battery are explained. Also, a manual method for calibrating the battery is presented.


If you notice your notebook battery is swollen or deformed, go to Swelling or Deformation of Notebook Battery for more information
