Hi all- I'm hoping somewhere here might be kind enough to assist me. I have a DV5T that is 2 years old. For some reason, it shuts off randomly. This only happens when I am not charging it, and also I have noticed it happens when I am listening to music, or watching a video. However, when it is plugged in to charge, this random shutoff never happens. I've considered maybe the battery is bad? I really don't know a lot about computers, so I'm not sure how long a laptop battery usually lasts. I did run the HP Battery Check, and it came back as good. If anyone has any suggestions as to what the problem could be, it would be GREATLY appreciated! Thanks! EDIT: Just another thought, the battery does charge when it is plugged in. When it shut off today it did so at 54% charge.
