  Mark McC 18:50 29 Jun 2006

i have had my laptop for under a year and the battery is not charging to 100% it stays at 85%and the battery light stays on while its plugged in could this be effected by the wear of the battery and is their any way i can find it out?

Try running the battery out fully a few times - that can help. Also don't use the laptop on the mains if the abbery is in - when on tha mains, take out the battery.

when i do this the battery charge is 44.56W then id gradually does down to 37.58W then at about 80% of charge in the battery it drops to 1.25W and takes ages to go up 1%

Batteries are generally excluded from warranties - or at most have a 6 month warranty.

How long will the PC last when running on battery? I found with one of my laptops that even though not fully charged, it will still give a couple of hours of light usage.

it used to give 1.30 HRS when i got it now its 1.06Hrs thats light usage i think its because of my CPU

Its a P4HT 3.40GHZ but that shouldent be the cause of my battery going to 85% charge is it??

How much is it for a HP Pavillion ZD8290EA Battery??
