    yes i it was over 85%, i guess that might be because of the charger pin as some times it starts charging. Like it was working fine for last few hours n stopped charging now. I need an expert opinion before getting it opened. As i need to confirm that the issue is with the charging port before opening

Kind of vague. It could be the port on your laptop where the charger plugs into. It could be bad, or could have a bad connection to the motherboard due to use or manufacturing defect. When the charger stops charging then it has to use the battery power. This morning the battery may have had a low charge causing the laptop to shut down. Did you notice the battery's power level before it shut down? If you are wiggling the end of the charger that is plugged into your laptop to get it to start charging again, then that is most likely your problem. Do not wiggle it , for it could fry your motherboard. If that is the case then that port needs to be re-soldered.

    You may need to break down and buy a new charger. If the system works fine with the battery and the only time you are having problems is when the charger is connected I would replace the charger. It could be sending irregular voltage , spikes , that may be what is causing the system to shut down.

Whenyou connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED light up? Ifnot then - The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's powersocket could be faulty. Check power adapter's DCplug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltageshould be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on thebottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that isprinted on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced. If the adapter is OK thenconnect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/batterycharging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket.If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED lightstays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder jointwhere it is connected to the motherboard. This can be repaired but itrequires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket andrepair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

My Hp g60 laptop battery is not working

If the laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all.
OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time.
If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

Not charging


No, there is nothing wrong with your charger. Its a voltage irregularity problem. Once it happens next time, remove the charger, remove the battery, put the battery back and try again.

I use HP 530, and I experience the same problem once in while but not every time.

Good luck.

Me hp's bluetooth is not working

Look at the product information here.
It seems that your HP laptop does not have built in Bluetooth capability.
If you want to add that, you have to buy a Bluetooth adapter. I am using this one and I'm very happy with it. It is Vista compatible, really cheap and very small, so I can leave it plugged in all the time without having to fear to loose it when I put my laptop in a bag.
