I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

i have been using this laptop for 2 years i get it from my friend .

from start it always charges battery upto 56 percent.

and i thought that there is problem in the battery cell and in few months battery backup becomes very short.

Yesterday i bought a new battery for my laptop but it is giving me the same problem which i had with my previous battery.

So this is not battery problem.

Things i have tried

1)Removing battery and uninstalling windows ac adaptor from Device manager.

2)Removing both battery and power Adaptor and pushing the power button for 20 sec if there is any residuel current.

Nothing has worked for me so far.

I would be thankful for your guidance.

Thank you
(I'm running windows 10 X64)

I have an HP Pavilion 17-e067cl. The laptop just stopped charging. I inspected the dc power jack and found the ceramic that covers the center pins missing so I replaced. When I plug the charger in I do not get a charging light. I have checked the back of the connector the dc power jack plugs into and I am getting voltage. I also checked the batter terminals and I am getting voltage there as well. What can I check as the machine is currently dead and will not operate.

A:Hp Pavilion Dv4000 Charging/vga

It appears after that connecting the monitor via the VGA socket is providing an Earth enabling charging to operate, the AC adapter socket has been tested OK.
It has been suggested that a chip on the VGA circuit board may have failed causing the previous strange behavior.

Son has a pavilion 10 X2 laptop 2in1. The charger (I'm in UK) states output of 5V 3A. Can you use a charger that has less amps?I have another USB charger, Anker USB charger which outputs at 5V 2.4A. Is this enough? Will it just charge slower?Also there's another charger I have, from a surface 3, which outputs at 5.2V 2.5A.So are all safe? With one having a different voltage, and both others having lower amps?Thanks

A:Pavilion 10 X2 charging question

Hi, It is highly recommended to use HP charger (and for warranty too) BUT by some reasons you need to use other charger TEMPORARY, I recommend the first one (ie 5V 2.4A). Regards.

I have been have problems with my DV4000 charging, it would charge only if I connected a external monitor to it, it was using that circuit as it earth source, you only had to connect it with no power.
It turned out to be the AC adpter socket, there is a tiny micro switch inside the socket which is opened when the adpter is plugged in, in my case the switch was damaged and wasn't switching as it is surposed to.
The laptop was taken apart and the socket unsoldered and replaced with a new one, approx 15.
hope this is useful to you all, thanks also to Colin from : a really helpful genuine Guy.

A:Charging HP Pavilion DV4000

This is a very common problem with laptops in general. People first suspect and replace the AC adapter, then find out that the DC jack (in the US) is bad. Some of the DC jacks are on a separate cable, and some DC jacks are soldered onto the motherboards. I have a Toshiba Satellite with a soldered DC jack. This jack cost $42. The laptop has to be completely disassembled

Hello, I am new to this forum thing. I have a 2 year old pavilion x-2 detachable personal laptop. Recently updated the OS to Windows 10. Ever since then I have been having problems with holding a charge on the battery. And now this morning it is unable to turn on and will not charge at all. I no longer have the serial number so I can not find out if I have a warranty through HP, which I think I do. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

  Hi @vballsmithc , Thank you for visiting the HP Support Forums and Welcome.  I have looked into your issue about your HP Pavilion 360 Notebook and issues with the battery and charging. Here is a link to test and calibrate the battery. Plug the power adapter directly into a functioning wall outlet. Do not plug it into a power strip, surge protector, or secondary power source as this could cause and issue. Here is a link to troubleshoot the AC power adapter. Please let me know the outcome of these test. I hope this helps. Thanks.

Hello aer12994 There is one thing you can try that might work, provided there is nothing physically wrong with the battery. It is possible to disconnect the battery, which will help make this procedure successful.It requires you to remove the eight screws on the bottom of the case first. Before you get started, here are the instructions to do so, starting on page 29.As long as you don't replace anything, you wont fault your warranty.HP Pavilion Notebook PC Maintenance and Service Guide - c05228250 Instructions for fixing Battery not charging:You can try this without disconnecting the battery first. If its not successful, you will need to use the instructions above to disconnect the battery before using this procedure. 1. Unplug the power cord to the laptop and remove any other unnecessary items like a USB drive, etc.2. Disconnect the battery cable only (no need to remove the battery).3. Temporarily replace the bottom cover and plug the power cord back in.4. Turn the laptop/Windows 10 on.5. Press both the Windows key and X key. Click on Device Manager from the list that pops up.6. Under Desktop (drop the arrow down to show the listed items if not showing), find Batteries and click the drop down arrow next to it.7.

I have two problems with my HP Pavilion 17-f010na laptop. I recently installed the Windows 10 upgrade (previously 8.1). The problems: The laptop is not charging the battery. Battery status is displaying "0% available plugged in charging", if the mains charger is turned off the laptop immediately shuts down.When the laptop goes into standby mode (after specified power saver time), the screen goes black (which is normal) but the laptop will not come out of standby mode, screen remains black, the power light remains on.I don't know if these two problems are related or if the Windows 10 upgrade has caused these problems? The laptop is just over a year old and has had very little use, perhaps just a few hours only.

A:HP Pavilion g4 reboots when charging and under heavy load.

The freezing with colored bars is your biggest clue.

It is probably the GPU (Video Card), go to the manufactures website and look to see if there are any driver updates for the machine.

You said this started recently, Have you done updates lately, maybe the driver update is corrupt, try rolling back the video driver

My oh noticed the battery was low earlie so plugged the charger in but didn't notice it wasn't charging until the battery completely ran out. He plugged said charger in again but nothing, the notebook will not turn on nor does the charger seem to work, we changed the fuse and still nothing. If you press the on button there is a rapid flashing light on the left hand side of the notebook which seems to be the charging light but the notebook remains unresponsive. Any ideas please? Thanks

Hello, I have recently ugraded to windows 10, everything (or I should say almost everything) works fine, except for the dreaded red x on my sound icon that says "No audio output device installed" when I hover the mouse over it, so I have no sound. And the other thing is my battery doesn't seem to be charging (the battery is new) it simply says "plugged in and charging" but it clearly is not because if I unplug the power cord, the computer goes off. I have looked around the internet for about a week now spending countless hours reading different forums from different websites, including this one, but I can't find any fixes that work.

hi from senior Joan. My led battery lamp keeps flashing. Is there reason for concern?  I am not charging to 100%. Would this be an adapter issue or does battery need replacing? computer is 4 years old and works fine otherwise. thanks much for any help..

A:HP Pavilion dm3t battery icon shows 99% available (plugged in not charging)

If the power adapter is producing the proper voltage and the battery is not charging, at four years old I would suggest that it's time to replace the battery.
If you know someone who can test the output of the power adapter this would let you know if the problem is with the adapter or the battery.

I have got an ASUS k56cb for more then a year now and it has been working fine for my. But now i came across this problem while trying to charge the laptop while windows 8 is running. When the laptop is turned off i can charge my laptop but when i try charging it while windows 8 is running it keeps flickering.
I have reinstalled windows 8 but that didnt fix the problem. And if i try to run the laptop on ac-power it will shut down when booting or shut down after 10-15min. Before this problem i was charging the laptop while working. I dont know if its the charger or the battery. I have measureed the charger and it is gives 19v all the time. I dont really know what to do know and any help will be appreciated.

I am having a problem with my laptop computer. I figured out that my laptop, when being charged or using the Power Outlet, runs at 100% CPU at times, and slows me down when running and working on some open applications. At first I thought I had tons of spyware or even a virus, and even posted a Hijackthis file here. Nothing was found.
I figured out that my cpu runs at 100% when using the power outlet, or when my computer is chargnig. When I unplug the powercord and use the battery life, everything runs GREAT!!!!! my cpu drops to a normal 4-8% usage with multiple applications running. WEIRD huh? Can anyone relate to this ?? Is this and indication that my battery is going bad???? Can someone help me with this or suggest what is going on? I am running windows XP home edition, and have a compac presario 1500 series.

I just got my computer back from having the motherboard switched out because of another problem, but now my battery will not charge. The light is on and it says it is charging, but it isn't. Should I attempt a gauge reset or something else?

It is a Lenovo y50, which I have had for 3 months. The battery needs to be unscrewed from the back.

A:Says plugged in and charging, but is not charging. Just got motherboard fixed.

If it is not charging maybe the battery is defective.
Did they gave you back the original charger?
Did they install another different motherboard which might use a different charger?
You may need to contact the person who repaired it to find out.

I have a dell xps 12, bought in 2012. Recently the battery stopped charging. The battery shows 0%, so I have to be plugged in to turn the laptop on. When it is on, the battery icon on the task bar says "plugged in, charging" but after a day it is still 0%.
Since then I bought a new battery. Just fitted it, but now the battery icon on the task bar says "plugged in, not charging". Furthermore, when I Fn+F3 to show the battery meter, it says "battery charging diabled". There is no option here to turn battery charging on. Nor is there an option to enable battery charging in BIOS. 
BIOS does show battery performing normally, so does the battery meter (Fn+F3). BIOS also shows AC adapter as 45W, which is the original adapter.
Any help is appreciated!

I've had my HP Envy laptop for about 3 months, and yesterday I noticed that when it was plugged in it wasn't charging (the battery icon says "plugged in, not charging"). I turned it off overnight, plugged in, and this morning the battery was fully charged. It only seems to not charge when it is turned on. I have tried removing the battery, turning on, deleting the ACPI-compliant control method battery, turning off, and turning back on again (as advised in other forum responses), but with no joy. At first I thought it could either be a battery issue, but the fact it fully charged overnight whilst off would lead me to believe it's not, and is probably a software / settings issue. Any ideas please, I've run out of google search ideas!!

I have Toshiba satellite model C875?7304. The battery indicator on the desktop says that it's charging but the percentage is depleting. This is on a brand-new battery that came with 67% full and a new adapter. When the laptop is off the LED indicator in the front is lit like the battery is charging. However it is not. After leaving it plugged in for a few hours the percentage was the same as when I turned it off. Also the adapter wasn't warm at all. I've tried all Toshibas recommendations removing all power from the laptop and holding the power button down for 30 seconds to a minute. Also removing the battery for the bios and reinserting it. Still that hasn't worked. I removed the laptop battery and the laptop will not power on using AC power only. It's almost like the laptop is only using battery power and the adapter is not charging the battery or keeping the laptop on. Laptops only about a year old. Any suggestions anyone?

A:Toshiba satellite charging but not charging

As the laptop's only a year old the original battery should be fine and not need replacing. Also if it won't run from the AC power only something is wrong. Look for your receipt and if it's still under guarantee take the laptop back.

A:35% (plugged in, charging) then not charging. :|

Hello and welcome. I read those instructions. and from your post, i can assume that you did those steps correctly and are still having issues. To further trouble shoot this , how bout testing what happens when you are running on battery and the charge is waaaaay low. Plug it in and see if it charges. and if it just charges to the one level of 35% . If this happens after it ( battery ) has been run down to a low power state and only charges to 35% , then to me that would indicate a battery issue. So, with that in mind, let battery run down and then plug it in and report back how far it charges back up to. Also, note how long it takes it to run down to a state where you need to recharge it.

Actually that's a hard question, generally its not possible to install another motherboard, sometimes it is. In this case one is an AMD platform and the other is an Intel platform, there could be tons of differences in mounting holes, physical design, clearance, connectors, heat dissipation requirements, cooling systems, etc. Laptops are not like desktops that use more standardized designs.

My HP Pavilion 500-205t was destroyed by a lightning strike. The HD is o.k. I have purchased an HP Pavilion 500-490 because the specs were very close.  I  want to use my 205t HD. Both computers are Core i3-4130, have 1 TB 7200 SATA 6G 3.5 HDs, same OS (Windows 7 Pro 64). My question is:  can I swap them out, or do I need to get an external HD enclosure and copy the 205t to the 490? If I need the external HD enclosure, looks like aluminum would be best, but would like recommendation for one which would hold my HD.

Hi I replaced the battery on my Gateway New between toggling charging" "not "charging" and Battery MA with a brand new one non OEM With the laptop turned off the new battery charged New Battery toggling between "charging" and "not charging" well without any problems But when I charge the battery with the laptop turned on I see the battery icon changing from quot plugged in-not charging quot to quot not plugged in quot New Battery toggling between "charging" and "not charging" to quot plugged in-charging quot and the cycle repeats The charging LED indicator also keeps turning off and on following the icon messages this indicator was constantly on when charging with the laptop turned off Looks like the battery charging is getting messed up when Windows is trying to monitor the status Applications also are exhibiting a strange behavior during this time I had started a virusscan and whenever the battery icon changed to quot not plugged in quot the virusscan used to pause and would resume when the icon changed to quot plugged in-not charging quot or quot plugged in-charging quot Very weird I uninstalled the Battery ACPI driver through Device Manager but that did not help The other battery drivers are reporting up-to-date versions I tried removing the battery altogether and connected directly to the power It works for sometime and then suddenly the laptop shuts off So cannot use that solution either One other data point is that the original battery was V mAH watt hours whereas the replacement one is V mAH watt hours But it has the correct battery model number Could this be a cause I had thought this difference should not matter Any help on how to fix this Thanks very much

A:New Battery toggling between "charging" and "not charging"

Hello and welcome drpvrvena mate sounds lie you have a dud battery my friend the voltage difference could be a possible cause even though it is only 0.3v.

The cycling stuff is also in my humble opinion indicative of a faulty battery. Now battery drivers?? I have never heard of such a thing I mean a battery is a battery I think maybe you mean something to do with the charge circuitry

But just a matter of interest try running these

download from bleeping computer

in that order delete any rubbish the malware scans find
Personally I would dump the AVG or at least pause it and see what happens with that charge problem.

If you ant to change to another security then let us know plenty of free suites and better than AVG (again not hard in my mind) .

Could my lumia 535 hv a charging problem or its a battery that is spoilt.. It shows that its charging but nothing is actually charged even after like 3 hours and for the battery still when charged directly.. For more than 3 hours ..doesn't charge beyond 35%.. What can I do.. Before reaching the center?

A:its charging but not really charging

Are you using the original charger? Is it plugged into a 110V or a 220V outlet? Are your cellular signals good while charging? Are you downloading anything or using your phone while charging?
Have you tried restarting your phone?

My HP Pavilion TouchSmart Notebook PC has recently stopped charging. It will only turn on when plugged in, but won't charge. The second I unplug it, it dies. Is there any way to fix this?


Hi Jroth2655, It seems something wrong with laptop's battery. Is there are any warnings related to battery in Windows? Try to shutdown your laptop, remove the battery and then return it back. Chech the the issue after this. Also you can check the battery by using instruction from this video: Best Regards,Alexey.

I purchased my HP Stream Laptop in Feb 2016, its used from my university work/studies. It is currently not charging or holding its battery power. I troubleshooted it and the results say the battery needs to be replaced. I tried to follow the instructions on how to get it replaced but was unable to. How can I get the battery replaced and will it be covered under warrenty? I really need to get this fixed asap Thank you

my vostro 220 I could charge my phone via the usb port when the computer was off. However, my optiplex 380 wont charge while computer is off. Why and can I change this?

A:USB charging

Only some PCs have the ability to charge a USB device when the PC is off. It's not something you can change if that wasn't build into the system. I suspect the 380 was manufactured before this became a handy capability.
You could put the PC to sleep rather than turning it off, and set Windows not to turn USB ports off which should allow charging. But sleep uses more power than "off"..

Hey all Not charging I posted this on another forum so Not charging I may as well copy paste the post I got myself a new HP laptop around a year ago All was working fine until my power adater charger wire broke so I had to get a new one It arrived I plugged it in and the laptop charging light lit for minutes or so then went then came on again this was a while ago so I can t remember exactly what happened I was able to turn on the laptop briefly during this time for minutes or so all was fine then it turned off again because it had no charge Then the light refused to show at all So I sent the charger back to Ebuyer they told me they tested it and it was faulty OK I said Got a replacement charger plugged it in the light showed straight away but I couldn t turn on the laptop I thought maybe I should leave it charging So I came back after a couple of hours the light had gone off and my laptop still dosn t turn on I tried again the other day too managed to get a light on the laptop and charger even heat from the charger and battery and the charging light turned green to show a full charge but I wasn t able to turn it on at all I m not sure what the problem could be faulty power supplies from different companies is unlikely I ve also tried running it without the battery in but connected to the charger as I hear laptops can run this way No luck Surely it must therefore be the laptop itself The warranty has expired so i m not sure what to do now Update - I also took my laptop round to my friend s house of the guys there know there stuff about computers They opened part of it up but couldn t see what was wrong They made an interesting point though at least selling the laptop as faulty for the components will make me around the same as an IT shop would charge to fix it nbsp

A:Not charging


did you buy an original HP part or was it a copy, ive seen some good Dell PSU's blow up laptops as they are overvoltage and not regulated.

I ve tried charging my HP 250 but it is not responding. I recently removed the battery and connected its charger directly. With direct current it seems to be functioning well without any power cuts. The problem is when i connect the battery it does not charge. I have tried many new batteries and chargers but the problem still persists. #desperate
