Windows 7: HP Pavilion dv3 laptop - battery discharges very quickly

HP Pavilion dv3 laptop - battery discharges very quickly

Hello,

This laptop is about four and a half years old and recently the battery has started acting up. The battery discharges from a full charge in about 15-20 minutes.

Another problem I had with the battery was a 601 error at bootup - I got this error in the BIOS screen and it states that the battery has fallen below its optimal charge capacity.

I managed to "fix" this problem with a BIOS update. I then ran the powercfg utility and it shows that the battery is charging fully,

Battery:Battery Information
Battery ID 14089 2010/12/01Hewlett-PackardPrimary
Manufacturer Hewlett-Packard
Serial Number 14089 2010/12/01
Chemistry LIon
Long Term 1
Design Capacity 11502
Last Full Charge 11502

So can anyone tell me why the battery is discharging so quickly? Am running Windows 7 Home Premium in Power Saver mode and nothing is running in the background, and the only apps are a couple of browser windows.

Thank you in advance.

hi the battery will not last forever. when they get old they lose there charge quickly. to get four years on a battery is really good. so it's time to replace the battery.

I have a MacBook Pro that's about a year older than the HP laptop and still holds a very decent charge (upto 2 hours). Is this simply a question of you-get-what-you-pay-for with the battery?

I think on average people get about 2 maybe three years on a battery.
