Do I need a new battery or charging cable?
I have an HP Pavilion dv6-6135dx laptop with Windows 7 that is at least 5-6 years old. The product number shows as LW262UA#ABA if that helps out.
I just started noticing that the laptop isn't charging even when plugged in. When I release it from the charging cable even when plugged in for hours, it will almost die right away like it hasn't been charging when in fact it has been.
When I move my cursor to the charging symbol at the bottom right corner it shows "0% available, plugged in, not charging". And when I restart my computer it comes up with a screen on start up that says "HP Battery Alert. The system has detected the storage capacity of the battery stated below is very low. For optimal performance, this battery may need to be replaced. Primary <internal> Battery <601>.
I pulled out my battery and it says HP MU06 Notebook Battery. Regulatory Model Number: HSTNN-UBOX and there is a white label on it with a description that says: Replace with HP Spare. It gives numbers of 593554-001. Also says CT: 6 BUDQ 32 SM 0T 0AU.
So my question is, what do I need to fix this? Just a new replacement battery or perhaps a new charging cable? Which is the messed up one? And where do I specifically get this at? A direct link to one on Amazon or somewhere would be extremely helpful because I've tried looking and I can't seem to find the one that fits my exact model laptop and I don't want to make a mistake.
Is this a good question?
