That's strange!!

 

I guess you've got the bad battery even thought it is a brand new one

 

I suggest you either try a spare battery if you have one

 

or

 

Get back to your point of purchase where you bought this and demand a replacement

I am considering to take it back. i just want to mention one thing, i have measured the voltage after the it was fully charged and it measured 11.7 volts. After the laptop shut down, i measured the voltage and it was on 11.65 volts. I then connected a 25 watt load to the battery for appr 3hours and the voltage only dropped to 11.35 volts, so i am not sure that it is the battery, but i will exhange it, Thank you kindly for the assistance. I will try any other suggestions as well

If nothing works out and if you still feel the battery is good as per your voltage measurement that would make us think about the actual HP unit itself. I strongly recommend you to Contact HP Technical Support over the Phone for further assistance to get your Notebook diagnosed and serviced by an authorized HP Certified Engineer based on the warranty.

That's right cells of the battery has stopped reacting and could not hold the charge anymore. In other words the battery has got maximum dead cells.
