Product: HP 6530b
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)
Hello there. I'm trying to revive my old HP 6530b. I've notice that my battery does not charge at all. Anyway, i decide to install new windows + ssd and new battery. So i've done this. All updates from Wondows + Hp, with new Battery and still my battery does not charge. It stays in 0%. When i try to troubleshooting, there is nothing. I've disable/enable battery drivers, even unistall. Still nothing. I've update Bios to last version, still... And cuz i have another hp, i've switched chargers/adapter and that's not the case. Of course, from all that, my laptop won't start on battery and when i unplug it, it will turn off. Dunno what to do, maybe it's something in the motherboard or? Anyone have idea what i can do to fix this? Does this laptop have a screw in the motherboard that needs to be tight so it will make contact for the battery to work. I've saw this in youtube's video for another model - Asus.

Thanks for engaging in the HP support community! This is a wonderful location to converse with the community, get assistance and find tips!
I understand that you need assistance with the battery not charging the notebook. I’ll be glad to assist you with this.
Let's try this:
Run hardware diagnostics test on battery and Charger:
Use the following steps to open the Component Tests menu.
- Hold the power button for at least five seconds to turn off the computer.
- Turn on the computer and immediately press Esc repeatedly, about once every second. When the menu appears, press the F2 key.
- On the main menu, click Component Tests.
- The Component Tests menu displays. Your Component Tests menu might be different, depending on the components installed on your computer.
- To run both tests simultaneously, in the Component Tests menu, click Power Source, and then click Run once. Each component can also be tested individually.
AC Adapter Test:
The AC Adapter test provides an interactive test to determine if the AC power adapter is functioning properly. A good battery is required for this test. Before running the AC Adapter Test, HP recommends verifying that your computer can receive power by connecting a known working AC adapter.
Follow these steps to perform the AC Adapter Test.
- In the Component Tests menu, click Power, and then click an AC Adapter Test.
- Click Run once.
- The AC Adapter Test begins.
- When the test is complete, the results are displayed on the screen.
Follow these steps to perform the Battery Test:
- In the Component Tests menu, click Power, and then click Battery.
- Click Run once. The Battery Test begins.
- When the battery test is complete, the results are displayed on the screen. For additional battery information, click Battery Details.
Hope this helps! Keep me posted for further assistance.
