Exclamation My HP Pavilion dv6 won't charge!

I have a HP Pavilion Laptop which won't charge AT ALL! It was at 0% one night, and remained the same even past sunrise! It does know that the charger is plugged in (when I hover over the battery icon, it says "0% battery (plugged in, charging)"), however the charge amount won't increase. Whenever I remove the charger, or it gets disconnected by accident, it immediately shuts down. Here are the specifications of the laptop:
Manufacturer: Hewlett-Packard
Model: HP Pavilion dv6700 Notebook PC
OS: Windows Vista Service Pack 2
Processor: Intel® Core(TM) 2 Duo CPU T5550 @ 1.83 GHz 1.83 GHz
Memory: 4.00 GB
System type: 64-bit Operating System

Have you tried taking the battery out and putting it back in? it could just be a dusty connection between the two. Otherwise, it could be anything from a bad batter to a bad motherboard in the laptop.

Hmm... I could try that. But the problem is that I never have enough time. I'll try in the afternoon.

It seems that laptops which are 0% charged simply need the charger in for a long time. I just checked the battery level, and it says 93% charged. But thanks for replying!

Just so you know-- your brick may be failing. There are three wires and a shield that connect to the laptop, and if one of them is breaking down, then the laptop may seem to work okay, but the battery will not charge.

I would recommend getting a replacement brick now, before your current one dies on you completely.

True. I just ordered a new replacement battery on ebay yesterday.

That's well and fine; I'm talking about the power supply brick that goes from the wall to your laptop.

Yeah, well, I'll try checking that as well. I'm only 10, so my dad might need to do it for me.

I've just installed the battery 20 minutes ago. It looks like the new battery is working fine, so I probably won't need to repair the charger.

hello ( sorry if this is the wrong place to post, new here) I'm having a similar problem with my dv6 as well. My one is a 1244tx i believe. I got a new battery about two weeks ago and it was working fine until today. when you hover over the icon in the notifications area it says 0% charging but it wont charge. Any advice? Thanks in advance!!!
