It's plugged in, and it says "Plugged in, Not Charging" and it won't charge anymore past 61%. My laptop is an HP Pavilion Entertainment PC DV6. Thank you in advance!
You need to test the adaptor and battery.
First, remove the battery, but keep the adaptor connected to your hydro source.
Use it like this for a awhile. If it is working fine, then you can rule out the adaptor.
Next, put the battery back in and see if it is charging beyond 61%. If so, the act of taking it out, and putting it back in (hours later) has made it a bit more functional.
If it still gets stuck on 61% charge, you may very well need to purchase a new battery.
Batteries go to have life after a year's usage. We typically order extra batteries for our reps as they often worked without adaptors when visiting shop floors. If an adaptor goes, it is usually part of the cord which may have gotten bent, hence no longer functional on a consistent basis.
either your battery is dead, as in not going to hold a charge anymore. My battery will not function on my computer unless its plugged in. Or something could be wrong with your cord. Try checking it on a friend's computer to see if the cord works and if it does, its probably your battery
if you have it for long then the battery needs to be replaced
maybe is "battery memory" problem ....so try to empty the battery many times and them try to full charge it. The old days batteries had this problem
Try plugging it into another outlet, maybe the power to that one is broken (and needs to be reset) or the powercord itself is broken and needs to be replaced.
