Computer wont charge

My HP Pavilion Entertainment dv5-1253dx will not hold a charge but It can support itself with the power cord plugged in.  I've tried rebooting, pulling the battery off and updating software, but when i try to update it tells me windows cannot check for updates.

 

Any ideas?

Re: Computer wont charge

Hi,

 

Download and run the stand-alone battery test utility available on the page below and see if this reports any problems with your battery.
