Laptop batery Failure

by xirvin / January 19, 2007 1:34 PM PST

My laptop battery is lazy!!!
I have a hp pavilion xz295 with a battery made from china for replacement of f2299A f3172a\b
the problem is I was playing a game plug in and sometimes i accidentally bump the battery and now "I think" the battery thinks she has 54% of charge when she has none.
The battery doesn't work, the calibration program of hp takes longer and is stuck at 14%. The test of the battery fails, plugged the laptop when testing the battery the computer restart abruptly after several minutes of testing.

Is there any suggestions or programs that can save the beloved battery?

help!!!!!!!!!!

Is that battery a genuine HP replacement or something you bought off the net? If so, you got what you paid for. If it's a genuine HP battery, how old is it. Batterys do have a working life.

I really dont know, but I think the factor is that the laptop was unused for like 2 month and then used for a week , and then 3 month off. The battery is 7 month old.


How can i tell if is original, I think is not because the oem battery has a three thousand something milliamps (and the one i got has 4400mA.
I thing in fact that the battery i have is better than the oem
What things i have to look when buying a new battery?

Some offer 11.1 v others 14.8 V and both claim to work with hp xz295

There are lots of companies that sell replacement batteries that are not certified by the manufacturer. Counterfeit as such. It sounds like the battery is not approved by HP. As far as current (your statement on milliamps) the larger number is better, it means a longer life. But if it's a knock-off battery it's not worth it. Voltage does matter. Too much and you can fry the laptop.

Do some investigating at the HP site. See what is recommended. If their battery replacement cost is more than the battery you have now, you got a counterfeit.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
