HP Pavilion X360 Battery (601) Alert Issue

Q: HP Pavilion X360 Battery (601) Alert Issue

Hi everyone, So, yesterday I started up my computer and the fan was running unusually high and then shut off immediately. I plugged my charger into my notebook and then started it up only to find the Primary (internal) Battery (601) message popping up. This laptop is just over a year old so I searched up on HP forums and found the fix where you uninstall the 'ACPI - Compliant Control Method Battery', turn off your laptop, unplug the charger and charge it into a wall outlet, and then starting up your computer. I repeated that process twice and then my battery worked again. I ran a diagnostic test and it showed that my battery was still at 90% capacity. All seemed well so I went to sleep, only to find that the same problem occured when I woke up and tried to turn on my computer - wouldn't start, alert message, uninstalled the driver twice and then it finally worked, and my battery is holding its charge now. Does anyone have any suggestions or input that might be helpful? Thank you.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

I bought this laptop, new, yesterday.  It charged all night.  The specs say it has a battery life of 11.75 hours.  That is the sole reason I decided to go with this laptop over one with better RAM.  I just turned it on 30 minutes ago and it is 100% charged yet it only has a battery life of 5hr, 26 min.  After 30 minutes of light use, it is 85% charged with 4hr, 3min left.  Is there anything I can do to fix this issue short of returning the computer?

Hello. I recently bought Pavilion x360 11, and on pretty much every review site etc. there was written that the full charge should last for approx. 6 hs of browsing internet. I tested it twice just browsing internet, and not even that much because at the same time i was playing on my PC. Both tests ended up in laptop hibernating after 4-4.5hs. I must say that is rather low battery lifetime, specially for me as I bought it for outside use mostly. Can it be defective battery or maybe upgrade to win 10 would work it out for me ? (asking about win 10 because I've read couple general opinions about how it extended their battery lifetime from i.e. 6.5h to 9h ) Any help would be very appreciated, as I have to make a decision if i want to replace the laptop at store or not.Thanks in advance.

Hi,  I am having a weird battery issue on my HP laptop. The laptop is about 3 years old and wasn't used that often. The battery has been fine up until I took the laptop apart to replace the RAM. I used a static strap and didn't do anything that would of affected the battery but I don't know. I think this happened just because I unplugged the battery when I was working on the computer. Anyway, now I get an error code:    This is what the ERROR CODE says if you can't read that:   HP Battery Alert The system has detected the storage capacity of the battery stated below to be very low. For optimal performance this battery may need to be replaced.  Primary (Internal) Battery (601) Enter - Continue Startup For more information, please visit: www.hp.com/go/techcenter/startup So this is basically saying my battery is going bad, BUT I don't believe that. One reason is that I checked the health of the battery in multiple ways. One way is through the UEFI Battery check which I checked the battery and the power supply multiple times and they all came back as PASSED with no problems. I've also used the battery check command in command line (cant remember it right this second) but that also came back with no issues. ALSO I ran the test on HP support assistant and that as well came back with no issues.  The problem is this. My laptop will be completely dead so I'll hook it up to the AC power suppl... Read more

4.5 hours is actually very good. The 9 hours is based on some conditions not likely to be duplicated in the the real world. The best thing you can do to make the battery last longer (runtime) is to turn down the screen brightness and turn off bluetooth and wifi if you are not using them.  http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c01297640

Hi, I own a Pavilion x360 u028tu. I used to get around 6 hours of battery life with it when I was running Windows 10 1511 (November update). But when I upgraded to Windows 10 Anniversary Update (build 14393.693), the battery meter only displays 4 hrs and 30 minutes, no matter the settings I change. Also, I know that time is not accurate, and I think this will only last me 2 hours. No more ability to roll back, as it has been more than 10 days. I also did a battery report through CMD, and it tells me that the charge cycle is still at its best performance. I'm trying to figure out what's causing the issue, and how I can fix it.

Hello, Several days ago my HP Envy x360 15 laptop battery started performing strangely - 100% charge lasts only for less than 25 min. and I started getting the HP error message (601) when starting the computer. The interesting thing is that this issue lasted for one day and then it disappeared (I did not do anything) - on the next day the battery performed as usual (around 5 hours on 100% charge). However, a day later the same issued occurred again and I have had it ever since. I keep getting that error message (601), but only when the laptop is not charging. I have installed several battery monitoring programs and I saw one interesting thing - when I connect the charging cable all those applications display correct designed and fully charged battery capacity, but as soon as I unplug the charging cable the designed and fully charged battery capacity shrinks nearly ten times (from around 38,000 to 3,680 mWh). The same thing happens with HP battery testing application - when plugged and charging, the application says the battery is ok and does not need to be replaced, but when I unplug the cable and run the battery test one more time it says that the battery needs to be replaced due to natural loss of capacity. The HP application shows that the battery has only been through around 170 charge cycles, so I presume this is no ordinary battery degradation issue. I tried manually calibrating the battery, reinstalling battery drivers, restoring OS to previous date, but nothing w... Read more

Hello,I've recetnly bought brand new hp spectre x360 13and it has a obvious problem with a battery.  The battery is getting drained when the laptop is shut-down(yes, complytly shut-down not in a sleep mode). It can drain about 8-10% battery per night, what is kinda annoying and unacceptable for high-end laptop.I'm wondering if this is due to a problem with the battery or if it is caused by some kind of setting that causing the computer not shut-downing properly.I've already disabled USB power option in BIOS. It didn't help.  Would really appreciate your help. I think this is not a common thing in a new laptop.

This morning my Pavilion gave me a battery warning. It had worked just fine so far. Yesterday a fully charged battery would have about 5 hours of working time, as of this morning 25 minutes. My initial thought was that some Windows update may have caused the computer to 'read' the battery incorrectly. On looking further I ran into the Battery Savety Recall and Replacement Program.  So now my guess is that HP tried to notify users of the battery problem, I missed that somehow and through some update replacement is forced on the users using some built-in battery diagnosis. So in order to see if my laptop is one of the infected models, I had to remove the battery (the automatic checking tool gave an error). No easy ordeal! Finally being able to check the status manually I get a notification that: "Your notebook battery is not affected and a replacement is not necessary. You may continue to use your notebook battery. Thank you for your cooperation." So how then did my battery die overnight? The computer is 2,5 years old and not intensivelly used. Please advise.

A:Pavilion 11 battery issue

"So how then did my battery die overnight? The computer is 2,5 years old and not intensivelly used." It did not die overnight.   2.5 years is a reasonably long service life for a component which only has a one year warranty. Purchase a guaranteeed compatible battery from an online vendor who provides a one year warranty.  You do not need to purchase a battery directly from HP.  Perform a Google or other search engine query with your notebook's complete product name and replacement beattery as the keywords to find a replacement battery at a good price.

I have a hp Pavilion Dv7-2177Cl laptop here with a interesting battery issue. It is run on AC 99% of the time. Never had any problems with it. Last night when I shut it down I noticed the battery light was blinking. I thought that was odd. I know it wasn't before as that would have drove me nuts. When I powered it back up I got a warning that the battery was at a critical level (from the BIOS), and I had to hit enter to continue. It boots fine, but the battery says 0% and won't charge.

I had a spare battery and slipped that in, and everything is fine. So I know it is the battery. Anyone ever have a battery be fine one minute and totally dead the next? Especially for one not used much and kept charged? Seemed a bit odd to me.

I have heard about putting the battery in a freezer for a few days, then letting it thaw and see if it charges then. Anyone ever try this? It is Li-on battery pack.

I recently received the HP Pavilion x360 laptop as a gift. By the second use it was evident that something was wrong with the touchscreen. It will occasionally go berserk and self-activate, in which a poltergeist is seemingly tapping my screen incessantly and opening programs, windows, and files. The touch screen animation of little taps across the screen clicks up and down the left side of my entire screen, causing the most disturbance when it clicks within the Windows 10 start menu, where it clicks open programs, etc. While this is happening, I cannot even control the mousepad, as the cursor is incessantly being dragged back to where the touchscreen is being activated. In the end I always have to force shut-down, and generally I can reuse it for a while (maybe like four hours or so?) before I have to go through the whole cycle again. I have not noticed a pattern yet regarding when it occurs. Sometimes it's write when I start the laptop; sometimes it's after I've been using it for an hour or so. Tactics I have tried:Uninstalling and reinstalling touchscreen driverChecking for updatesRe-Calibrating the touchscreen Eventually just going into Device Manager and disabling the touchscreen altogether. Here's a video of my HP Touchscreen ghost in action:https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B1R-obFJQJotNG52YzZkcFpKRjQ/view?usp=sharing

This is not happening because I have shut down the laptop in tablet mode as I have never done this. It is extremely inconvenienthe and I would appreciate some help.

Hi, guys!
I bought HP Paviion 130 x360 from Future Shop a month ago. At that time, I didn't get any pen or pen drive software. So I'm just wondering if it's their mistake or I should buy one.
If possible, I'd like to use one of these pens: Lapazz tablet ??8060 pen, stylus pen, and a pen for HP tc4400 tablet pc. 
Also, I want to use pen pressure for photoshop.
 
If I have to buy the pen:
1. What pen will fit for my laptop?
2. What pen drive do I need to install?
3. Do I have to buy both of them?  can I download a free software from HP website ?
 
I really need the pen pressure system. 
 
If I don't need to buy:
1. Can I get a digital pen from Futureshop/Best Buy? (I don't know much about Tablet PC and It was first time to buy a laptop by myself) 
2. Unless, Does one of pens on top work on my laptop and to use pen pressure?  I tried to touch the screen with them. Only stylus worked.
3. Can I use Lapazz tablet pen as a digital pen/ a stylus?

A:Pen for HP Pavilion 130 x360

Unless I'm missing something, this is a touch screen which you use your finger to navigate rather than a mouse.  If you are more comfortable using a mouse you can use a usb type with the laptop.  I personally don't know anyone who uses a stylus on a laptop touch screen.
 
Just out of curiosity, where did you read that you needed to use a "pressure pen"?

Pavilion X360 11  will not start. LED-power input from charger works fine. When press the power button the LED comes alive and stays on for 12 seconds. The fan works at about the same period but in two segments, one for 6 seconds, pause for a split second and continue another 6 seconds. Then LED and fan stops for 2 seconds and the cycle begins again and again.Tried the hard reset, the hold of power button for 15 and + seconds, the hold of F10 F 11 etc keys, the hold of WIn + B, opened computer and reset battery cmos battery, HD, etc... Nothing change this nuisance.Btw the screen never turns on, and no blinking lights anywhere.The only difference is when removed the memory card, the LED remained on but the fan off and the caps lock key blinked three times only. I am trying to make this junk to work out of pure curiosity, is not worth it really. Rather buy a MAC....... I really tried....

The operating system is windows 8.1, I'm unsure of the bit size. The first thing that happened was the screen kept going black, I sent it off and it got fix, was never told what was wrong with it. A few months later it started to freeze up after being on it for a few minutes, I can shut it down and restart it and it does the same thing.

Can the HP pavilion x360 13-s120 use an SSD for Windows 10? I have cloned my hard drive to SSD and when I install it says please install an operating system. I have also tried a fresh install of Windows to the SSD and it (and I) cannot find the required drivers. Is there a new BIOS that needs to be installed?  Or is this scenario impossible? I will welcome any suggestions at this point. Thanks

After several months of inactivity, the HP Pavilion x360 notebook won't boot up. When turning on, all I get is a blue screen. If I hit a funtion key, I'll get a brief description of the key in the lower left hand side of the screen which remains there but nothing else happens. Can anyone suggest a solution to this problem. The laptop is virtually brand new.
