No, don't mess with the surface mounts.
You don't even know their value!

Computer will not turn on. on button does not light


Whenyou connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED lightup? If not then -The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's powersocket could be faulty.Check power adapter's DCplug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltageshould be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on thebottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that isprinted on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced.If the adapter is OK thenconnect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/batterycharging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's powersocket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position thisLED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a drysolder joint where it is connected to the motherboard.This can be repaired but itrequires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket andrepair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

My CQ61-411WM doesn't boot anymore. Symptoms:


Hi

If the graphics card was intact, the external monitor test would have given you an image.

Unfortunately, this seems like a graphics card problem common to this manufacturer (google HP Compaq Notebook Graphics Problems).

This fault can be repaired only by specialist laptop repairers with specialist tools.

The repair is called Reballing the Ball Grid Array.

Reballing has a marginal success rate and even if successful, the fault can reoccur. A typical professional repair warranty would give you 3-6 months post-repair warranty.

Sometimes the surface of the graphics chip is too damaged to repair.

This repair can be expensive as it may involve several time and labour intensive rounds of disassembly, repair, reassembly and testing.

If you do opt for repair, ensure that the repairer is a specialist, properly equipped with an Infra Red Workstation, experienced in this specific type of repair, is willing to do a No-Fix-No-Fee Repair and offers a Repair Warranty.

If the laptop's warranty has expired and the repair cost seems high to you, it may be time to consider a new laptop.

Sorry for the bad news.

Hope this helps.

Hp blue light on ac plug is on, when power button is pushed lights come on for a second then nothing, tried removing battery and pressing power button for 40 seconds, no response. Is the mother board bad?


Im afraid that is a motherboard failure. A few months ago I had one in for repair with the same symptoms. Tried reflowing the graphic chip, nothing Tried reflowing the FSB controller chip, nothing. Tested power module for bad capacitors, nothing.
You could do the same steps I did, maybe you get lucky.

If this post was helpful and informative please give it a Thumb Up. Thank you.

My mother gave me a HP Pavilion ZE 4500. I push the on button not a thing happen. No flashing light, No sounds.


Hello.

The most common reasons are the power adapter/cord and power jack.

If you move/wiggle the power adapter at the point where it connects to the laptop, and the power goes off and on, the power jack is the problem.

The power jack is inside the laptop and either needs soldering or replacement.

If no change, the power adapter is probably faulty and needs replacement.

Hope this helps.

Power supply replacement


Not quite.To be sure, take down the RFU(replacement field unit) Number of your power supply. Use that as the identifier for re-ordering your PS.

Hp power supply failiure


Hi,

Ive worked on a friends G7000 series laptop, since it had the same symptoms you have with yours.

I tested it on my own(identical) working charger/PSU and still no charging.
After taking the motherboard out, i traced the fault to a short circuit FET (field effect transistor) with the PCB reference of PQ1, located right next to the connector for the DC power jack loom.(short from gate to source) The FET is made by Fairchild Semiconductors and its part number is FDS6675BZ. Being in the UK, i ordered the part from www.farnell.co.uk at a cost of 56pence. After changing this FET(which is there to control power) the laptop is working.

If you are not good with very intricate surface mount soldering, then i suggest you buy the component, take the motherboard out of the laptop(not too hard) and take them both down your local TV repair shop for them to check and change it(tell them the board reference PQ1).. shouldnt cost more than £20 or so been as they dont have to fault find.
