I have a Compaq Presario 2100 the plug in on the back to where you plug in the cord to charge the battery has come out so I cant charge my batter nor can i use my laptop. I was wondering if I bouhgt a USB cable and a USB station that I could plug into the outlet would allow me to use my laptop again, or would I just have to go get the plug in fixed?

Turn it off.
Disconnect the AC adapter.
Remove the battery.
Purchase a can of compressed-air, and give your computer a "blow-job" -- blowing air into everywhere inside your computer. You could be surprised how much dust is ejected. Dust is an excellent insulator, and will make your computer run much hotter.
Check the mounting screws on the cd burner,yes you have to remove the keyboard and speakers,and check the two visible mounting scews.....I rescently bought a used presario and discovered the yo-yo didn't mount the cd rom properly(no screws)...The screen you saw flashed is the BIOS,also check fitment of all plug in type accessories......
With the AC adapter and battery installed and it will not power up remove the adapter and the battery. Then plug in the AC adapter after both have been removed for 30 seconds and let the laptop set for 30 seconds and then unplug the AC adapter and then slide in the batter within 15 seconds and try to start the laptop.
