    New Battery Issue


    I own a HP Pavilion G6 2301AX laptop Last week, after 1 year of use, it showed a screen on startup which showd the msg to change the battery since its capacity is low. So I bought a new original battery for the same series of my laptop. After 2-3 days of use, it is showing the same message. To change the battery. Why is this? What is the solution. My laptop is restarting on its own in between. And the battery percentage is always varying even if lasts.

    If you have HP support Assistant install you could verify the power status, see this, basically the same for Windows 8

    It may also not be the main battery but the CMOS battery that needs changing

    Maybe all that is needed is Calibrating but look at the whole document.
