    Please help. My Hp Pavilion Dv7 windows 7 64 bit, will only charge my battery when my computer is either off or in hibernation mode. When computer is running battery reads plugged in, not charging.

    Battery will not be charged unless it's capacity bellow 90%.
    You may drain the hp dv7 battery power to 30% also and try again.

    Happened to my dell 1545 once. I unplugged the power adapter, left the notebook running on battery for ~5 minutes and plugged the power back in. It started to charge and problem solved!
