Re: "plugged in and not charging"

Hi @jedgar21,


I have read that you are having battery issues with your HP Pavilion dv6-6c00ct Notebook. I thank you for the detailed information you have shared on what you have done thus far. Have you tried restoring the BIOS to default factory settings?


Try to Uninstall the ACPI battery Method. Remove the Battery, then in the Device Manager, expand the Batteries section by clicking the little icon to the left of the word Batteries. Right-click Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery and select Uninstall.Restart the Notebook. Once the Notebook has come all the way back up, shut it down and remove the AC adapter. Put in the Battery and AC adapter turn on the Notebook.


Please come back and let me know how it goes.
