Okay I seen some battery issues before but let me get this straight, you are SURE that the battery charges while on but when off (and still plugged in) it doesn't? So for instance pretty much all laptop have a light for the battery so when it's being charged that light is lit. You see this light when the PC is on and supposedly charging? If yes, do you see the same light when the laptop is off?

Oh I seen that before. Most times it was the battery. On rare occasions it was the systemboard and on one occasion it was the power adapter. I would research a battery replacement if you are interested in keeping this battery for at least one more year.

Most likely it's the battery but won't know till you try. If you aren't going to keep it for a year or more it's not cost effective.

What is the make and model of this computer?

 

How old is the battery in question?

 

How can to tell if the battery is being charged when the computer is off?

 

Have you replaced the power adapter?


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

HP G6000, the battery is about 18months old...the "battery charging" indicator-light comes on When it's charging while it's off.
