Im having issues with my battery

I have an HP Pavilion g7-1075dx running windows 7. The battery will not take a charge and it takes forever to load to windows unless I remove the rechargeable battery.

Welcome to the Seven Forums.

If you leave the computer off and charging overnight - and the battery still does not charge, then it might be time for a new battery.

The reason for the slow boot is because the operating system "sees" a low battery and it slows things down to save power.

If the laptop is running on AC power, then the battery status will have no effect on the boot time. If the battery will not take a charge, check it's terminals for any corrosion. Check the same on the laptop itself. If they look clean, then it's likely time to get a new battery, especially if the battery is more than a few months old.

I probably did not state that well. I should have elaborated: The CPU speed can be throttled if the battery is so low or damaged in such a way as to pull the voltage down on the charger. If the charger cannot present the laptop with enough voltage/current, the CPU cannot run at its rated speed. If the OP is seeing a real difference in boot time with and without the battery - then that is my guess as to why.

It would be interesting to see the reboot times (with and without the battery) as measured by the tool in this thread:

ReBoot Time

If the OP wishes to perform that timed test, I would suggesting letting all services start (even the delayed ones) - then launch the reboot timer tool.
