Question about HP Compaq Presario 2200 Notebook

Compaq Presario 2200 won't hold a charge - on or off AC

I've had my Compaq Presario 2200 notebook for almost 4 years and the battery's lifespan (off AC power) has gradually dwindled to the point where it won't even stay charged as soon as I turn it on. Not only that, but when I plug in an AC adapter/charger, it won't even seem to charge up. I have to struggle with the connection to just get the power light to come on, and when it does it only blinks yellow/orange for about 6-7 seconds. I can then turn it on again, but it dies right away. I've tried multiple AC adapers and the problem has been ongoing with all of them.

I'm hoping that the fix is something as cheap and easy as just replacing the battery, but in my experience it's always something more -- hopefully non-motherboard related. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I have a Compaq Presario 2210US. The wireless toggle button is in front on the right side, slightly under the top of the computer. Feel for it with your fingers or use a flashlight. It glows a bright blue when on.

Compaq Presario F756NR - I go to turn on the laptop, it blinks a couple of times like it is booting up and then turns back off. Could this be the mother board?


With an extensive use of the notebook,
some times notebook would store some static charges which
indeed will stop the notebook from powering up or charging
the battery. The procedure to remove this static charges from
the notebook is known as power drain. Performing a power
drain procedure will not effect any personal data or delete
any pictures from the hard drive on your notebook.
I recommend you use Power Drain procedure by following these
steps:

1. Disconnect the AC Adapter.
2. Remove the Battery.
3. Hold the Power button down for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
4. Reconnect the AC adapter.
5. Turn on the Notebook power.

Can't get laptop to turn on. Battery pack lights show full charge, power cord is plugged in. No indicator lights illuminating at all, wondering if it is my motherboard. Compaq Presario 2200 laptop.


very first thing u have do is if u have any other laptop try and connect the aac adaptor with that laptop and also try the battery if it is working with the other laptop that means the motherboard of the computer has gone bad u need to replace it and what also u can try is disconnect the ac adaptor and take out the battery from the laptop and the without ac adaptor and the battery press and hold down the power button for one minute and then connect the ac adaptor and put the battery back in and then try and turn on the computer and also what u can do is shut down the computer first and then just hit the power butoon once only to turn it on and then keep tapping f8 key on the keyboard and it will take u to windows advance options and select safe mode with networking and then try if it turns on to the windows screen or not......and if it doesnt turn ono then definately replace the motherboard...good luck....

Laptop not powering


try a simple power cycle. Take out the battery, leave power adapter plugged in. Hold down the power button for about one minute. Then hit the power button normally this should correct the problem

My Compaq R3000 does not charge up


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.
