My compaq presario 2100 will not start up the power cord plugs in and when you wiggle it it somtimes would work but now wont at all. thank


1. You possibly have a damage ac cord
or you have damaged connecting plug at the PC .
2. try to obtain a new AC cord.
3. Another possibility is the power supply for the PC needs replacement.
4. A PC technician can determine this for you.
Contact Compaq for repair rates because most likely this is a special power supplied system.

Power problem with laptop


The problem may be in the charger now. It could have shorted out. Do you see any lights on the unit when it is plugged in? James

Computer wont charge. Plugged up and still wont charge. Is it internal, battery or charger?


I'm not asking if the computer will charge, I'm asking if when you have it plugged in does the computer operate normally. You should be able to take the battery out of a laptop and plug in the computer in and the computer should still operate.

Itermttit ac and battery power on laptop compaq presario r3000. ac sees to work fine and then goes to battery (battery discharges in less than 30 miutes) - mp


your are probably experiencing a short in your ac cable, the next time it happens wiggle the cable, if the ac pops up in the task bar stop using the charger and buy a replacement.
PS check the slot where the adapter plugs in the back of the laptop to see if its loose, if it is take to the repair shop.
compaq are known for tis problem.

The charger connecting point on my compaq laptop is loose and so the laptop does not alway charge


This is the DC power jack. Some solder points have most likely come undone. If it's in warranty have Compaq fix it for you. If not, you can call around and get the cheapest price you can to fix it. If your handy with a soldering iron and feel comfortable enough to take apart the laptop yourself, we can provide instructions on opening the case. You can purchase a new jack if need be for about $25 - $30. Just remember this most likely the problem. I can't say for sure without looking at it. You may want to take it in to get fixed just be on the safe side. Hope this helped.

Laptop won't charge- have a compaq presario v4000- got a new charger which still doen't work.


hmmm...sounds like either the battery is deep discharged, or the motherboard isn't passing the charge voltage through to the battery..
