    Hi, I have the same problem. I think I am on the road to a solution:



    Would not start from battery or adapter (or with battery removed). Adapter giving good output. Disassembled it, traced power through from power board to mobo, OK. Found out that with it disassembled, and the HD plugged back in it started and ran normally. Upon reassembly, it ran OK for a few minutes then same fault. Removing one screw at a time showed it was one of the screws underneath the keyboard (left bottom of 4). When this screw is tightened, the laptop dies immediately. Note you must then disconnect all power (battery removed), release the screw and wait maybe 15 seconds before it will start again. This indicates to me that there is a resetable fuse component (multifuse / polyfuse / polyswitch) which is operating due to a short circuit made by tightening the screw. I am going to disassemble the laptop fully to see where the short is occuring and will report back if there is something conclusive that fixes it properly. Matt

Compaq M2000 turns on using charged laptop battery but doesn't charge or turn on when using power adaptor, with or without the laptop battery


1) The AC adapter should ALWAYS be plugged into the laptop FIRST, then plugged into AC power. If not, this could create a voltage spike.

2) Let's look at the DC Power Jack, for the Compaq Presario M2000 series of Notebook PC's,

http://www.notebookparts.com/products/description.php?II=9741

The DC Power Jack is mounted to a removable circuit board.
Enlarging the view of the jack, shows us there is an Inductor.

The small 'can' standing up on the power board. This chipset could have gone south. (Bad)

How to know? Replace it, or dig out your dual trace oscilloscope. See if the Inductor works.

Could also just be cracked solder joints, of the DC Power Jack, TO that small circuit board. Solution would be to resolder it/them.

[ I WOULD however, search for a BETTER price, than listed in the link above, IF available ]

DC Power Jack is in good shape, soldered tight to the motherboard, and ruled out as the problem?
(Since you know the AC adapter is good)

Then the problem would be the Inductor on that power board, or power correcting chipset.

What one is it? Dunno.
DO KNOW is has J leads on the bottom.
CAN give examples, and perhaps you can identify using them.

Battery won't charge


Hello,
This is true, you will not be able to charge the battery without the correct charger. For mostly all laptops, when the charger is not maintaining a charge, it is time for a new one. However, it does not have to be the manufacturer's adapter, but I recommend purchasing the battery made for the Compaq Presario M2000 Notebook.
NextTag.com has decent deals on these adapters. http://www.nextag.com/ac-adapter-compaq-presario-m2000/search-html

I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
Thank You, Raph30
