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.

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