my HP compac 2710p is working O.K. when attached to the electricity. it shuts down completely when i pull off the plug. this is new. thanks, judith


Hey Judith, I have had a similar problem with my wife's Dell laptop. Unfortunately, the only solution was to replace the battery. Laptop batteries do not last forever. Did you notice that it was staying charged less? If so, that is the case. You can pick up a battery at Amazon.com. Here is a link to what you are looking for. Hope that helps!

plugged in & not charging with new battery


Laptop not charging
if you have a brand new battery and it is not charging, check the charger you may have to replace the plug on both sides, check the cables.
you can take the charger to a TV repair shop and tell them to check it and see if there is any juice (charge) coming out of it. that is a common problem with chargers, we trip over the cable or pull it out of the laptop by accident and it brakes little by little. if there is no charge coming out you can star by checking the jack you may have to cut it and have them check it again.
if you don't want to go trough the whole testing, just tell the TV repairman to fix it it should cost you about 30 bucks instead of 80 for a new original charger or find a chinese one on e-bay

Toshiba Satellite 2410-PS241L laptop does not start.


Plug it into the electrical outlet and then turn on your laptop. if it comes on and works fine, then your battery is just simply dead, and if it will charge, just needs to charge. If not, then you are going to have to replace your battery. But assuming all of this is true, and your laptop will power on when using your electrical outlet, then yes, feel free to use it whenver you like when plugged in.
