If the battery pack is made by a third-party and not a genuine original
equipment replacement from HP/Compaq, it may have damaged the
check if this is the case, try running the laptop from the
power-brick with the
replacement battery removed altogether. The laptop
should be able to operate
direct from the mains power-brick without a
battery attached (this allows you to
store the battery away when you
don't need it at home so it doesn't get
overcharged). If laptop won't
operate direct from power-brick with battery
removed then I would say
the power-brick is faulty, probably damaged by the
And the battery itself is probably causing the laptop to
erratically as well.
Always buy genuine replacement parts for a laptop.
Cheaper 'copies' are
attractive but they are false economy.
