  1. So, I've got this new HP Pavilion dv9000 laptop from a buddy of mine, who'd said the only problem with it is the fact that the laptop screen doesn't want to stay open.

    For the past few weeks, I've worked on a Doom RPG project I'd planned to have another update posted up about, but it seems that when I'm on the move, my laptop can't hold a charge worth anything.

    Every time I supposedly charge my laptop, and take it up to the park, the battery charge jumps from 100% to 67%... within 5 minutes. After that, it steadily drains.

    I've already decided to get a new battery, but I'm not exactly sure if this was the way to go, or if there was something else wrong with it...

      First, try draining it fully so it turns off by itself (remember to turn off the standby function). Then charge it to 100%. It may just be a problem with the battery meter.

      If not, then the battery is dying. It'll be a year or two before it's completely useless.
