I have recently started seeing this pop-up message - 'For full performance, connect a higher capacity AC adapter'.  It shows up when I plug in the AC adapter, but, not every time.  The message is in a small blue box w/ a rocket in the corner.

 

The computer's battery meter shows that it charges to 100% and stops charging. 

 

What else does it need?

 

Laptop is a G60-535DX with Windows 7.  AC adapter is standard 65 watt that came w/ computer new.

You are getting this message from HP software that came installed on your machine. This software does nothing for your machine but slow it down. 99% of the products they add are already covered in the Win operating system. I always remove all this bloatware from the Programs and Features option in the control panel as soon as I boot the machine for the first time.

 

As to the specific error itself. It could mean that your battery is slightly under-performing, or your power supply. Or it could mean nothing at all. The internet is littered with people experiencing this same "warning" with no discernible issues otherwise.

 

I would just uninstall the HP bloatware.

I had checked this link previously and it doesn't apply to me.  No telling why, I have recently started getting this message, the laptop has been happy w/ it's adapter for 2 years now.  Thank you for your time!

It could be the battery beginning it's downward decline to dying.  May be best, not to try to fix it, till it's broke.

 

I do like the idea of getting rid of the bloatware and have done away with some.  I'm not sure which of the 10 items listed in Programs and Features that I can safely remove and don't need.

 

Thanks for your response!

It is more likely that it is your adapter going out than your battery. But they are very cheap to replace, when the time comes.

 

If you list what HP apps you have installed I will let you know which you can safely remove.

I got the same pop up on a brand new HP ENVY.  I've got a couple of machines and this particular model comes with a larger battery and charger.  The charger barely gets warm even when the battery is down and the screen is bright.  A few months ago I stopped getting the warning.

 

The other ENVY I have is a less expensive model and came with a smaller capacity battery and lower capacity charger.  If the battery is low and the screen is bright the charger gets very hot.  Never got the warning on this machine but it would make more sense on this machine.  I always try to keep the charger adapter in open air so it can dissipate as much heat as possible.

Interesting.  The more I learn, the more I realize, that sometimes these wonderful computers are going to have issues that just don't make sense.  Thanks for the input.

The only application out of these I would keep is the Quick Launch Buttons. The rest is either junk or just not necessary.
