YOU NEED TO RECALIBRATE YOUR BATTERY. FIRST UNPLUG THE POWER CORD AND LET YOUR BATTERY RUN ALL THE WAY DOWN TO 5%. THEN PLUG YOUR POWER CORD BACK UP AND LET IT RE-CHARGE THE COMPUTER. SOMETIMES WHEN YOU FREQUENTLY UNPLUG YOUR AC ADAPTER YOUR BATTERY FORGETS HOW MUCH POWER IS ACTUALLY AVAILABLE IN CONJUNCTION TO WHAT THE BATTERY METER IS SHOWING. RECALIBRATING THE BATTERY WILL RE-SET THE METER WITH THE BATTERY.

I had the same problem on my CQ60. HP battery test showed one or more cells not working. After spending about 2 hours talking to some guy in India,or somewhere, he came to the conclusion that my battery was bad. HP sent me a new battery, which fixed the problem.

of all, you need to make sure your power adapter is providing enough
power to both run the laptop & charge the battery. A very good way
to do this is to compare your laptop voltage & ampere requirements
(written on a sticker on the bottom of the laptop) with the voltage
& ampere ratings of the power adapter. Voltages should be the same,
or the power adapter's voltage about up to 0.5 volts more than the
laptop's voltage rating. Amperage of the power adapter should be at
least equal to or greater than the laptop's rating. It should never be
less than the laptop's rating, or else the power adapter will be
providing insufficient amperes to charge the battery. Of course, the
power adapter's nominal amperage might be ok, but it degraded on usage.
You can verify this by testing using a good or new power adapter.
If the battery did not charge using the new power adapter, take the battery off the laptop, & using a dry tooth brush, scrub in between the fins of the battery connector on the motherboard & on the battery it self, then put the battery back into the laptop & try again.
If this still did not resolve the problem, then the battery itself could be bad. Try it on another laptop, or try a good or new battery in your laptop.
If this did not work, there might be a possibility that the charging circuitry on the laptop's motherboard is defective & needs servicing. In order to do this, the laptop needs to be disassembled & the motherboard checked for defective/burned out components in the area near the DC jack. Any defective/burned out components found should be replaced, or you might need to replace the laptop's motherboard altogether
