  1. Laptop battery shows 0% but still works perfectly fine


    So a few days ago, the battery got completely discharged to 0%, then when I opened my laptop again, it was showing 100% charged, but when I unplugged, it shutdown instantly

    The orange light glows for 1-2 seconds after plugging in and then blue lights glows.

    Then I tried to find more about this online and tried all this things
    - reinstalled the battery drivers , nothing changed
    - a battery reset pressing the battery pin hole for 5 seconds , nothing changed
    - shutdown the pressed the power button for at least 40 seconds, and from then it shows plugged in , 0%, not charging
    - disconnected and reconnected the battery, nothing changed

    Also, in the battery report, full charge capacity and cycle count shows just a dash -

    So now, there has been a power cut about an hour ago, and I unplugged the charger, but my laptop is running perfectly fine

    Except that the battery shows 0% and a red cross appears on it

  2. Battery is showing 0% (plugged in) but shows no signs of charging

    Hi,

    I have a HP Laptop 15q-bu0xx running Windows 10 with 4 gb ram and an Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU N3060 @ 1.60GHz, 1601 Mhz, 2 Core(s), 2 Logical Processor(s).

    Its battery is having issues and it always showes 0% (plugged in) but does not show any signs of charging and instantly dies as soon as I remove it from charge. Due to an accident, it fell down and the screen broke but the rest of the laptop functions perfectly
    well. I plug my laptop into an External monitor and use it. I have tried many methods like updating the battery driver, uninstalling it and then restarting my laptop but none of the methods have worked and I am not able to remove the battery because the screen
    is in the way. Please suggest something.

    Thank you.
