Hi, I have recently purchased a battery from HP store to replace the old one. Got it yesterday and it seemed to work fine. However, since this morning, there is problem with it:
1- Laptop works fine with AC adaptor alone or battery alone, when battery metre reading on the laptop is about 85%
2- LED lights blinks while both AC adaptor and battery are in the laptop
3- Switch on the laptop with both, after about 2 mins, the critical alert came up with 0% in the battery metre
4- I took out the battery immediately and test on the side, the LED lights on the battery shows 100% full
5- Then I restarted the laptop with only battery, it worked fine again, with about 85% left, but gradually dropping to 84%, 83% etc...
So my question is: is it a faulty battery (although newly bought from HP store)?
Any help will be appreciated.

what were the problemswith your old battery? if the symptons of both batteries are the same I guess your laptop itself causes the problem. Otherwise a faulty battery can be the case, but you never know except testing it on another system, or use another battery to test your system.
have a nice day,

The previous battery was faulty because the laptop wouldn't boot up on it, although the battery test button shows 100% full.
Do you still think it might be problems with the laptop?
