One possibility is that the plugs where the battery is attached are scr...d up. Try to check them and see if there is any obvious problem... If not, there might be a short-circuit somewhere near the battery (in the laptop, not in the battery..)
You will need to buy another power cord for the exact model of your laptop. You can either find it in local computer stores, or you can search for it on ebay.com (usually search by laptop make & model, & usually buy from a top seller).
Check the power cord at the connector. Hp has a problem with the cords breaking internally. I had a problem with mine and found that if I played with the cord then it worked for a while. I ended up buying a new power supply.
take out the battery and try to start the computer with it plugged in using the power lead. If this owkrs without the battery being in then the power lead is fine.
If this doesnt work it could possibly be the power lead or the power supply inside the laptop. Does the power lead converter (the black box half way down the lead) get warm when plugged in for a while, if so the power supply is probably the fault
These power cords are very sensitive and shielded. A bad power cord can have very serious effects and damage to the hardware of the laptop, especially the motherboard. They can be bought on E-bay and other sites for less than 30 bucks....beats a 300 dollar motherboard bill.
whatabout the lead that plugs into the laptop ?
does the plug in the laptop move easily, with the lead in,
Sounds like the actual plug in the laptop is breaking away, the solder around the connector. Sadly to fix that you will have to get it repaired for about £50 to £70, maybe more ??
please make sure the lead from power supply is not loose or a bad fitting.
i have that problem as well ill have power one minute the charge light comes on then if i move my laptop pooof its gone i think its internal maybe a loose salder leading to the power supply. so try ro check it out u might have to take it apart to check it but no u dont need a new laptop.. firstname.lastname@example.org
About 99% of the time the DC female adapter is soldered to the motherboard making it near impossible to fix. Getting solder on anything would ruin the motherboard.
It is possible that it is your Power Cord and not the jack on the motherboard. Same problem I had a few weeks go with a clients laptop. You may want to buy a new Power Cord, and try that before you go out and have to get a new motherboard (which can be VERY costly, or even buying a new laptop).
Post the model number of your laptop and I can direct you somewhere to get a good deal on a new power cord.
