Remove the battery and see if it will run just using the power cord.If it doesn't it could be a bad power cord .Or motherboard connection.

Page 2-13 onwards of the HP software guide from here may help.

All works ok re battery or mains its just that I don't get any warning when the battery gets very low although I have set it in powere options. The HP guides are very good but nothing in them to solve my problem..........so I am still at a loss as what I can do ??

I am still hoping someone out there can help me solve this problem, so just a bit more info might help ..... The battery is lasting quite well almost 2 hours and that is mostly online but the power warning setup does not work when it got to about 20/23% the laptop just cuts out no warning no nothing. Have been looking at various things and I think the laptop still thinks its got the original battery according to the number, been in the BIOS and cannot find anything in there that might help me, all I can think of is that although the battery works fine the software somehow does not to recognize the fact that I have changed the battery......any Idea's ??

Is it a genuine HP battery and the same part number as the old one? If not then thats probably the problem. Cant comment on laptop batteries but I do know that some camcorder batteries come with extra terminals that allow the capacity to be monitored by the camcorder. Although you have checked the BIOS, is it possible that this monitoring is a function of the OS, in which case this suggests that a driver might be involved?
