Clubhouse dv6: the battery on my laptop seems rather useless
I had this problem for quite a while. I have to keep my laptop connected to the charger ALL THE TIME. As soon as I unplug it, the battery level falls to about 11% and then stops immediately in the next minutes.
Should I replace the battery? I live in Bangladesh and I can't seem to get the region HP support.
The most likely thing is that the battery must be replaced. 2 years on how long they last and if it's the original battery, this model is actually a little more than 2 years.
Seven years ago, I bought a Tecra 780DVD, five years ago a Tecra 8100 and two years ago a Tecra S1. They re all still in regular use and I ve used now six packs of lithium ion batteries. My experience suggests that these four guidelines are worth observing:
1. it is preferable to the hibernation and remove the battery if the laptop will be inactive for more than 2 or 3 days.
2 operating time vary a lot between the samples of battery even with the same operating conditions.
3 leave the charger plugged in with the full light on doesn't seem to hurt (despite some of the recommendations).
4. better is not the first time, that it is unable to charge the battery of junk. The trick described below may reset the battery and get more useful life out of it.
Tecras see the end of battery life by battery light flashes orange or stay off when you try to reload. Last week when I returned from vacation what happened the 780 (now the WiFi print server) and I felt like déjà vu because all 4 batteries (three on the 780) and the other on the 8100 that I ve had previously fail expired the same way they failed to charge after 7 to 14 days of hibernation with the battery left in. In my view, that it can hardly be a coincidence.
I still had another 780 old farm and an old battery for 8100 that both failed about two years ago I did some tests. The batteries two 780 showed 10-11 volts on a voltmeter, but when I put them in the laptop and plugged in the charger, the led load always flashed. However, when I plugged the laptop battery already started the grid only, the hanging lamp orange and after an hour or two went green.
I think this shock treatment can have done in battery electronics forget they were supposed to be dead. Anyway, I did with all three batteries and then ran to see how long d last. The results were:
(1) the 780 battery failed last week (after 36 months used) can now run the laptop for an hour.
(2) the 8100 battery (with the active service of 16 months, but 'believed dead' for two years) will now run for 10 minutes or more.
(3) the 780 battery believed dead for two years (after 19 months used) appears to load but t does not work the laptop. Half of the battery ended up hot and half cold, so now I guess that it s really dead.
Hoping others will compare notes, I've summarized below how long my battery packs lasted before they refused to pay more.
Original battery: 30 months (discarded too soon. Might have gotten more if I had tried to trick reset).
First replacement: 19 months (stored for two years, after which reset didn't work).
Second alternative: 36 months (after reset now works for an hour).
Original battery: 16 months (stored for 2 years. After reset now lasts 10 minutes).
First replacement: 41 months and always well run.
Original battery: 29 months and always well run.
All are genuine Toshiba and operating conditions are quite similar for all. Laptops tend to run 4-8 hours per day with the charger plugged and maybe half an hour on battery only. Sometimes we forget and the charger remains connected all night.
I m now wish I d tried the trick of reset on all batteries as soon as they failed, but at least I seem to have rescued two batteries. Even a moment of execution as short as 10 min is useful on a laptop that s especially power sector. It protects against power failure and you can keep your battery in the fridge until you need it for a trip.
It seems that you are very big fan of Toshiba laptops :)

I have this laptop:
It's a lenovo y50.
I can't find anywhere of the battery
Available inside the laptop battery Lenovo Y50. To change the battery, you need to open the base of the cover and replace the battery.
If you wish to remove or check the battery, then you can see below manual (page 37)
Spoiler (Highlight to read)I was wondering if I can continue to use my computer without the battery. I keep it inside the computer, but now is at 89% and weak. I always use it with the AC adapter at home and rarely unplugging it for the use of the battery, the battery seems to weaken. So should I take the battery out of the computer and just use the adapter? Help!I was wondering if I can continue to use my computer without the battery.

Sorry, it just means maybe machine die, unusable, as a brick.
I don't know exactly what battery should I buy. In particular, I wonder if it's a 6 o 9-cell battery.
Here are the parts of the repair:
(17) to the battery: 9-cell, 100 Wh, 3.00 - Ah Li - ion 636631-001
6 - cell, 62-Wh, 2, 80 - Ah Li - ion battery 593562-001
6 - cell, 55 Wh, 2, 55 - Ah Li - ion battery 593554-001
You can use a 9 cells or one 6 cells. The 9-cell as you could find, has a much longer duration but is physically more grand and bulges in the envelope a little. I get still and always the highest battery capacity I can buy.
Real 9elements eBay shipped from the United States
This is commonly called the MU09 battery and is probably the most common battery HP on the market with the 6-cell MU06... compatible with many laptops HP from 2-4 years old so very popular. $45 shipped is a good price, but if you search around on eBay and online otherwise you could possibly do a bit better.

BY plugging charger or by plugging in only when the battery gets low?
Modern batteries and Chargers know if 100% full. Please read the following articles:
I replaced a new battery on DELL Latitude D620 the other day and found the battery often sliding laptop causing the "blackout" of DELL Latitude D620. The cause is that the left side of the bottom of sliders of the laptop, no committed property,... most probably a stem was broken.
Any idea to keep the battery slide?
It seems that if the battery is not of the appropriate type for your computer or the computer's battery lock is broken. Either it is a hardware problem and should be treated by a repair service approved by Dell or other reputable, trustworthy.
I replaced the battery in this laptop before. The current battery is shot and must be replaced. For some reason, the look of slide out battery won't. I'm afraid that if I put more pressure on it, I break something. Should I lubricate the blade? Can someone help me?
Yes, it's this one.
The battery of my laptop Satellite C50-A-1DN was defective despite attentive treatment after more than a year.
Now the screen remained black at the beginning of the unit.
After that I removed the battery, I could see the computer then power up as usual.
How is that?
Well, this question seems a bit strange because even if the battery couldn't keep cooler, the laptop should be able to power being plugged into the mains.
I'm not quite sure that the problem is related to the battery...
However, the battery is a removable part and very cheap... so in all first the battery should be replaced and laptop computer features must be tested using the new good farm work.
If the problem of the laptop will not be resolved even by using the new battery, well in this case there must be a serious problem with the motherboard... maybe power electronic problems...
The battery on my laptop dv6-6026tx stopped to load, but windows still says "plugged in, charging" just the percentage remains that never was it when it is plugged in (currently at 15%, for the last 2 hours).
If I unplug the charger, the battery will be discharged normally.
If I take the battery while the computer is running, your laptop will stay on and he's supposed to run on the charger.
I tried to recharge the laptop both while on and off and tried to start it is plugged and unplugged.
Run the HP battery health test in the HP Support Assistant. It will read the data in the farm as the number of cycles, like the odometer on a car and also the health of every cell. The most likely thing is that the battery needs to be replaced. They do not last forever.
Original title: problem try reinstalling Windows 7.
problem trying to reinstall Windows 7, whenever I have insert the windows disk error message 7 arrives
"windows cannot be installed on a computer using battery power. If the battery is discharged during the installation, you can lose data. to continue the installation plug into the computer power adapter.
What happened before so I replaced the battery and where I'm talking about his 100% display and plugged in but everytime I try to run the disc, I get this message
any help would be appreciated
Most laptops have two power circuits separated when on AC, one to charge the battery and the other to run on the system board. It seems rather that the second circuit has failed, if the laptop power PIN is multi pole so it could be the power supply but it is rare.
Check the label of the PSU manufacturers, if he makes mention of both voltages or two nominal currents, it is perhaps interesting to try a different PSU.
What is the best way to extend the life of the battery of my laptop? It seems that different sites have different recommendations.
(1) should take you your battery whenever your laptop using power? Or only after only 2 weeks of all continuous power (like the HP website seems to recommend)?
(2) how many times should I condition the battery?
(3) when you use your battery, should be completely empty before recharging again to capacity?
Thank you very much! All tips are very much appreciated.Message edited by kaobelle on 07/23/2009 23:06
(1) should purchase your battery if it will be put off for two weeks.
(2) you need to calibrate your battery once a month
(3) calibrate your battery takes care of this.
Here is a very good reference document-
Don't forget to check out the other links on the bottom of this document as well.
Following the procedure defined in the HP Support Assistant to calibrate my laptop battery (reboot, press ESC when the power led lights, selsect F2 system Diags, etc.), I find that pressing ESC when the power led lights up does not work.
Can someone explain why this is so, or offer another procedure?
Thanks for joining in! The forums you will find suggestions, solutions that have worked for others and helping hands! I understand that you have a problem with the calibration of the battery on your laptop.
You can calibrate the battery using this document: test and calibrate the battery (10 Windows)

Looking for the best way to replace the battery of my laptop. Buy a new for about 50 euros, but unfortunately no possibility for me at the moment: (.)
I can understand you but cheaper battery unfortunately isn't the best solution. What you need is compatible and original battery for your laptop.
If possible, wait a bit, save the money and buy the right one.
When you remove the original battery, you will find the exact reference. To order a new one.
Anyway, I think battery cheaper than you can find on ebay. Check it out and compare prices.
Hello, I am a new owner of a Macbook Air.
For the last couple months everything works fine and the battery on my laptop lasted for at least 10 hours, but last week, I noticed that the battery life is not as long. Now when the battery is fully charged, I have only 4 hours of power.
I don't know why the change suddenly, since I did anything differently. Maybe I am doing something wrong without realizing. In any case, I would like to ask for some tips or ideas to help me solve this problem (if it can be resolved).
I really appreciate your help!
