HP 2000-299 Notebook PC My battery indicator states that my battery is not charging. I did a search on an HP site and found a solution that worked for others by deleting items on the DEVICE MANAGER. I tried this process but my battery still indicates not charging. I also found that if the battery is removed and the laptop still works after plugging the power cord back in it means the battery is bad. Is this true? The battery in my computer now is a replacement I bought from EBAY in APRIL 2017. Can someone suggest where I can buy one that will last longer then just 1 year? The original battery lasted 5-1/2 years (2012-2017).
