Try updating your drivers to the most recent Win8 compatible drivers. Otherwise, Windows just reports and acts on whatever the hardware says. If you're jumping from over 20% to under or at 5%, chances are good the battery is bad.

Why would you go from W10 to W8????
to W7 maybe but to 8. No, I cannot fathom it.

all drivers are upto date. only system bios update not installed cause it was giving warning that maybe all data will lost so make partition i tried but partition making giving error so prefer to not to update bios due to some important data and i have no time to install all things again or swap from windows 8 to windows 7.

Razor: Those are power settings, not actual battery life readings.

Fahad: You need to see that the general power settings are set to laptop or at least energy saver, not performance.
If you charge it overnight, does it show 100% charge? Does it remain on the high battery end of the battery indicator/meter for at least a half hour to an hour?

Fingers, not entirely sure what you're trying to get at? The complaint is he's not getting a low battery alert before hibernation, hence the settings showing he should be getting an alert 15% before the hibernation. Without further info, I'm assuming the power is going from > 20% to <= 5%, presumably due to a faulty cell in the battery, causing the low battery alert to be superseded by the hibernation.

Razor: "...laptop shut down or hibernate dont know without giving low battery warning." is not very clear English and easy to a variety of interpretations. I am still not sure what it means.

Fahad: If your battery never reaches 100% then the battery or the charge cord is bad. Try an overnight charge when off or sleeping or hibernating.
General Power Settings: When you bring up power settings there is a general power plan and a couple of options typically. One may be Economy or Laptop, one may be Normal, one maybe Performance, and there may even be one labeled HP Recommended Settings. I would prefer the HP one or Laptop one if available and economy if not for a laptop. Performance is really good only for desktop machines or it will hurt battery life.
