The HP nc6000 notebook has the ability for 2 batteries -- a 'primary' battery and a 'Multiday' battery (that chutes into the similar slot utilized for a Digital Video Disc/CD drive.) When on battery power the notebook uses the primary battery first till it drains out, then it is guessed to switch over to the Multiday battery. When the primary battery exhausted down to zero, entire power cut off to the notebook and it instantly log off.
You have to assure it to use the other battery; I had imagine it is the power and battery choices in control panel. I do not have a notebook with a same form, so I can not actually give a perfect solution. Another advice would be to see if HP has any particular software for the setting you may require.
Are you sure that your secondary battery is completely operational? Do you have process to another notebook similar yours that you can try it in? Too is the battery swapping characteristic hardware controlled, or does it need driver set
up and/or extra configuration? May be you could test to reinstall the drivers for the battery interface, if it needs them at all. Too that particular battery swapping characteristic is likely an HP technology, and consequences with it would be most accurately addressed through contacting the producer.
I have acquired the nc8000, with the perfect similar setting, but mine functions as intended. My first thought is that the battery may be defective. Are you even in the warranty time? May be give few thought to hitting up HP for an substitute, which should figure out the trouble. In case you were wondering, there are no circumstances or anything that might be causing this trouble. The laptop familiar that there are 2 batteries there, but for few conclusion the second battery obviously is not discharging exactly.
This is where you find why I do not wish notebook PC. Commoly, they are over-priced, below-functioning, under-engineered and absolutely unpleasant! So, over-priced, well I am selling 3.5Ghz 64bit desktop systems with One Gigabyte random access memory, 350Gb SATA2 hard disk and Digital Video Disc writer. You can not actually acquire that specification in a laptop, but if you could it would be in Bill Gates territory! To acquire more than 15 minutes out of the battery, notebook processors are throttled back, a lot! A mobile 3 GHz processor expenditure most of it is time functioning at about 2 GHz.
