Question about HP Compaq Motherboard

1 Answer

Startup problems ctnd

Battery indicator shows full charge; laptop does the same without the battery pack. Flashing orange light="no battery" but all goes dead when I try to turn it on. Also flashing light does not come back when AC is reconnected, have to unplug AC from socket and reconnect before flashing light reappears. Cleaned battery contact no better luck. However it does look like a power issue, almost like a short.

The orange light shows the battery is charging. It will turn green when the battery is fully charged. The white light shows there is power entering the computer.
The usual problem with a computer when there is no response to pressing the power button is that the motherboard has failed requiring the replacement of the motherboard.
If the computer is still under warranty there should be a free motherboard replacement, if not, and you are able to do the replacement, you can find motherboards for sale on various websites. Be aware that motherboard replacement for laptops can be expensive if done by computer repair shops.

4. With the AC Adapter connected the laptop appears to be dead.
No power LED or battery charge LED activity.

I would check to make sure the AC adaptor connection on the motherboard was not damaged when you opened the pc. ( I have done that a few times.) I'm uncertain of what you have done to solve the problem. Since you have the new battery, again try to charge the battery. when it show the charge is complete, let the pc run until it goes off, when it does, keep powering your pc on until it will no longer power on. (You want to make sure the battery is completely drainned.) Once complete, try plugging the AC to your pc and monitor the charge. You may need to let the pc charge for at least 2 hours before powering the pc on.

Good Luck

Battery will not charge on a dell d610 when plugged into outlet

I have seen this with faulty batteries.
Try changing the battery.
Also, check in the BIOS that the adapter you are using is recognised and shows a state of charging with the battery in.

Satellite A200 Not Charging battery

You're gonna have to replace the motherboard.

Check to see if it's under warranty through your motherboard manufacturer's website.

Most of them are covered for 3 years.

Best of luck!

Dell latidue D610

The light indicator for the battery is; green-charging, yellow-battery failure, and red-charging system failure. The charging system failure happens when the power management chip fails. The pm chip regulates and controls the power input & usage, allows the machine to switch from AC to battery, and cotrols the charging. This will also cause the problem with the power button not workin or being hard to start. Unfortunately, the motherboard will have to be replaced in order to fix this.

Startup problems

Have you considered it could be the battery has died. Have you tried external power? If the battery is OK then check the battery contacts to make sure they are clean. Has your power supply died and it won't power the laptop or charge the battery? It could be the motherboard but I'd put my money on it's power supply or battery. Without more details being supplied.
