I have a HP pavilion zd7000, When the computer is on it uses the life of the battery not the ac adapter the battery is old and last about 15 mins But it will not charge while the computer is on. Shut it down and the ac adapter charges the battery but open it back up and it wont charge. A couple times I have been able to use the computer without the battery but it usually shuts down pretty fast. But I turn everything off adapter works fine.
I have checked the powerjack and it looks fine (it has been replaced before)
So I have come to the conclusion that it is either the battery, Ac adapter, or some crazy program setting.
I did have antivirus 2010 virus mess things up last week. And I have had some difficulties with ATI powerplay.
Any advice would be great before I start buying new batteries or adapters on a five year old computer.
