Having problems with your HP Compaq Presario C306US Notebook ?

Battery doesn't stay charged

\015 When I would work on my Presario Notebook C306US without the ac adapter, the laptop would only work about 30 minutes or less and then go into hibernation. Thinking that my adapter had gone bad, I bought a new one. Still having the same problem. When I work from the adapter and turn off the laptop, the battery charge light comes on, but only for a limited time. When I pull the adapter plug from the laptop, the battery charge light blinks briefly like the connection is not good.\015\012\015\012I've only had this laptop for less than 2 years and bought it brand new.\015

Answers :

The problem is with the battery. All Lithium batteries last for around 1000 charges or so. Since the laptop is 2-years old the battery needs to be replaced.\015\012
\015\012I Hope this solves your problem. Kindly Accept my solution.\015\012
