Hopefully this is the right place to post this, if not I appologize in advance. I have a HP Pavilion N5435 Laptop that has been running great for a while now. My problem though is that about two weeks ago the battery went out I think, let me explain why I think that.

Basically for about the last month, month and a half my battery has been lasting less and less time. Finally one day it died on battey so I pluged it in and the little battery icon light that sits right under the power switch turned a shade of pinkish-red which I had not seen before (usually it's green, yellow, or red) and then turns off (the light). Ever sense then I must have my laptop plugged in our it dies instantly. Now Windows shows the battery with a full charge (100% = 30 mins of power) but it always dies as soon as I take the power chord out. Does anyone know if it is a dead battery or something else? Please help! Thanks.

Hi and welcome go Geeks to Go. Windows is probably lying to you about that battery. Try another battery.
