Understanding problems with a HP Laptop Battery

The HP laptop computer battery, take HP Pavilion DV1000 Battery for example, if it will not power on the DV1000 notebook or not hold a charge, it may have a defect. The LED indicator, located near the power icon, either does not light or always blinks orange. Another indication of a battery problem is that the notebook operates correctly when the notebook is connected to the AC adapter.
A HP laptop battery that will not charge may be the result of an AC adapter failure, a system board failure, or a battery failure. You may follow the steps below to find out where the problem is.

Troubleshoot the AC Power supply

To verify that the HP DV1000 AC power supply (18.5V 3.5A 65W) is functioning properly, follow the steps below.

  1. Plug the AC adapter “directly” into a wall outlet (functioning well one), and plug connector into the computer. Do not plug into a power strip, surge protector or secondary power source.
  2. Verify the following operation and take the appropriate action:
    • That all power cord connections are secure. If the AC adapter connection to the notebook is loose, the connector may be damaged and require repair. Contact HP service and support for further assistance.
    • That the power button or power LED is lit when the computer is on.
    • That an LED on the AC power supply adapter is lit when plugged into an AC wall outlet (not available on all AC power supply adapters).

      Different laptop models require different AC power supply adapters.
