I'm having some weird issues with my battery. No idea why is this or what should I do...
So lets see. I charge it to 100% and disconnect the charger.
Then it starts to drain, but sometimes the indicator does not move at all. It stays on 100% even after 20 mins. Sometimes it moves as usual.
It was doing the same both on Vista and Windows 7 (clean install of both) so that one is not likely a Windows issue. After a reboot the indicator moves, it drops to around 70%. (it's still 21 mins after disconnecting charger)
After a while the computer either hibernates right away (with no warning) or just powers off (as if I removed the battery)
What's even more weird, just a second after the computer powers off, the white LED flashes, which indicates power is back on. Normally this would only happen if I disconnect all power sources (battery and charger) so the computer is completely unpowered.
I tried calibrating the battery using HP's instructions in the Help Guide, but didn't have much luck.
It turns off after a while as expected but I'm able to turn it back on and it runs for another 15 mins...
What should I do?
