Question about Compaq Presario R3310US (829160642062) PC Notebook

1 Answer

Charger not Charging System.

Hi, I inherited a Compaq Presario R3410US. The only problem it has is that the little pin that is used to connect the charger cord to the motherboard has broken off. It appears that this is directly connected to the motherboard. Do I have to replace the entire motherboard, or is there some service somewhere that can solder it to my motherboard? I still have the original pin that was inside of the charger jack. Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Re: Charger not Charging System.

Im not sure what pin your talking about so, let me give you to answers, If Got a good friend with a steady hand, who's good with computers, and a solder iron?, take it to him, if not, take it to a excellent (and i mean EXCELLENT) computer store, and see if they can take apart your laptop, and solder the peice back on. but, if this is the male connecter, that you actully plug the power adapter into, id it the pin inside the hole, then you'll need a new motherboard

It seems a few guys on here are missing the point, if you wish to check to see if you dc socket is faulty you need a good working charger and a multimeter set to DC volts.. Remove your battery and inside the battery compartment there are a series of brass looking contacts some are longer than others, the longer ones 90% of the time represent the Negative ( -V ) or Ground, Connect your black meter lead to one of the longer terminals and continue to probe your red lead on the other smaller terminals and see what reading you get.. if you see a small voltage thats dropping this normally means you are on the pins that connect to the output of the battery and as such capacitors on your main board are discharging (hence the voltage drop). if you see 3.3v on some pins this indicates the charging voltage and shows your dc socket is in fact working fine and that the problem is with your charging circuitry on the main board which is where i am at the moment, trying to find the relavant information to allow me to repair it, LOL hope this helps..

Presario M2000 no power or LEDS

That is very possible, but make sure it is not the power supply charger, and remove the main battery to see if you can get power, bad batteries will often load down the power supply, if this works replace the rechargeable battery.

I have bought a new charger for my laptop, compaq presario cq56, and it is still not charging

Other expert is right--if not charger may be a loose socket where it plugs in or even a bad battery is possible.

My compaq presario c795tu battery is not charging

Unplug the power supply, take a stiff tooth brush and clean the battery terminals in the laptop plus the battery, re-install the battery and plug the charger in, If that fails you need to find out if the charging circuits are putting out the proper voltage before you replace the battery.

Battery charger

Yes. Usually they either work or they don't so obviously when they test good they should charge the battery. Dell laptops have a "data pin" that determines what wattage of power cord is plugged. If this data pin goes bad on the power cord or motherboard the laptop won't charge.

Compaq presario C762NR notebook pc I have trouble charging it, the blue light turns on and off. Once I plug it in I need to move the charger around in order to start charging

You either have bad wires or loose connection. Take the prongs on the plugin and bend them both outwards. Use wrench if needed. Bend them just enough so they will stay in the outlet without being loose. This is the most common problem with charging

Compaq R3000

r u mention for battery light?if is it true,then the light is blinking because of your laptop want to make sure the power supply charge that battery.if it is in charging condition,the light on.but if the light goes off,that mean, the battery is already full.

But when u use adaptor without battery, the light will goes off because no charging session is in progress which has same behaviour with battery full(during battery full,no charging session occur)
