My Compaq R3000 does not charge up

My R3000 when I click on AC symbol, comes up with Power meter window.It shows "current power source: AC Power and Total Battery power remaining : UnKnown
Under that there a symbol of Battery #1 and there is a red cross over it. The battery does not charge.
What can be the problem. The laptop is around 4 years old and was recently fixed for power jack problem by a tech.
Thanks,

The problem might be the battery itself. Four years is a long time for rechargeables. Also, check if the error ocurs when the battery is not in the slot.

    That means the sensors are working. The battery must be worn out. If possible, try with a new one or at least, with one that works on another R3000.

Evrytime I unplug the charger on my lenovo S10-2 ,it automatically turns off. a little help please! :((


Sounds to me like you may have a problem with your laptop battery! It may be time for a replacement. You can find some on ebay that work fairly well; I have bought and used several different laptop batteries from ebay with success! Or, you can always purchase from Lenovo themselves.
  1. eBay: Here is a link to batteries that will work with your laptop.
  2. Lenovo: Black battery is here. White battery is here.
A little information before you decide to fork out some money:
  • Keep in mind the color of your laptop; don't buy a white battery if you have a black laptop and vice versa, unless you want that kind of look, of course.
Hope this helps!

1. Remove battery from the laptop. 2. Unplug the power cord from the computer. 3. Let the computer sit for a few min. 4. Leave battery out. 5. Connect power adapter to computer 6. Push power button to turn computer on. 7. If computer powers on shut down again, and put battery back in. 8. Push power button to turn computer back on (at this point battery and power adapter should be connected to the computer)
If computer powers on with power adapter with the battery out. You are having a battery issue. You would want to look into replacing the battery. If computer does not power on with just the power adapter. You are most likely having a power issue. Depending on how old the laptop is. You will either want to contact the manufacturer. Or take the computer to a computer repair shop, or consider replacing the laptop.

Compaq Presario R3000. Push power button and lights come on then goes dead before booting. Occassionally Windows will start booting the it goes dead. Any suggestions?


Either the power supply is putting out too low voltage or the power jack is bad.Try moving the ac adapter tip around while its starting up to see if it keeps it running or shuts it off.If it makes no difference try another ac adapter that does work for sure and see if thats the problem.If neither approach works,then the HDD may be seizing or one of the ram sticks may be bad.Some sort of hardware conflict can cause shut downs.You would have to take the bootstrap approach to narrow it down to one pacific component.

Change your AC charger.
It's NOT charging "When the laptop is plugged into the AC, the power meter in windows tells me that the power source is still batteries, and the battery level drops by about 1% every few hours"
That's the reason why: "battery has completely died"
If you do not change it you'll continue to "still it gives me the same low battery indication and will not turn on. "
