I bought a HP Pavilion 15 Notebook PC in december; with a full charge it lasted like 8 hours or so, now it only lasts 2 hours. What happened?

Battery life is a tough question, it depends on what it has been subjected to.  If you have the time a full drain down then a full charge sometimes perks them up.

Honesty & Integrity Above All!

Usually poor battery life on a relatively new computer is related to software running in the background. Also certain tasks use more battery life than others. Streaming HD video will use the battery much faster than just browsing the internet. Brightness of the screen can affect battery life as well. If you are using the computer the same way and getting less battery life, I would recommend scanning for virus's, it could be some software running in the background using resources.

If I am helping you with a problem and I have not responded within 48 hours please send me a PM.
