    have you already checked your battery using the hp battery health check tool? or it could be that the charger is not working properly anymore

    Do the following:

    Turn off the notebook. Unplug the A/C cord and disconnect the battery. Hold down the power button on the laptop for 8 seconds. Reconnect the battery and plug in the cord. Everything will work. Repeat as needed.

    Just so you know Jeremy, Infamous essentially had you reset the system including the battery sensor/indicators.

    No, reseting the computer in that manner would NOT cause you to have to restore the data on your whole computer, if that is what you meant. If you had to restore the data on your whole computer it was because of some other issue.
