Batteries don't last forever

Batteries don't last forever, and in fact depending on usage patterns, may only last 6-12 months. If the system is less than a year old, most companies will replace the battery under warranty, but after that you have to buy one yourself.

My first advice. REMOVE the OLD battery.

Keep in mind that most laptop batteries are now 300 CYCLE units. If an owner uses the battery often then in just a year and maybe a bit longer the battery is gone.

Leaving a failed battery in the laptop can stress the charging circuits and when you put in the new battery it may not work since we lost the charging circuits because we left in the failed battery. Repair costs are now usually the end for that laptop. Or it turns into the usual desktop unit.

You ask what kind of battery.

Let's say it is the battery, then over at hp.com you go order a new one.

If that doesn't fix it you price out the cost of repair and see if it is worth repairing.

Many are lost when it comes to laptop repairs. That is they didn't expect it to be so expensive.

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?
