Battery/configuration/ Hi, I have had this hp pavilion dv 4000 for 2 years (bought it new) and I noticed that If I disconect the mains from the laptop, the screen goes blank, but the pc stays on. If I connect the mains back, the image doesn't come back, so I have to switch the pc on and re-start it.

\015\012well, the issue seems to be with Battery , it is not working properly any more. or it could be an issue with Battery drivers in PC.
\015\012
\015\012To isolate the issue, I recommend you to try below steps. This will resolve the issue .
\015\012
\015\012Step 1: Connect Battery and Also AC power adapter, try to charge the Battery for around 6 hours. Make sure that notebook is idle for 6 hours, do not try to run any application . Just let notebook be ON for 6 hours with AC power with Battery in, so that battery gets charged up.
\015\012
\015\012Step 2 : Once if you are done with 6 hours of Charge, now disconnect the AC Power. Restart PC and let the PC run on Battery only. Check out how much time PC is able to run on battery. If PC powers ON properly with battery and runs around 40 minutes then it confirms that Battery is fine else if PC do not startup properly or if it works less than around 30 minutes on battery then it confirms that it is an issue with Battery. If found fault with battery then try step 3 process.
