Question about HP Pavilion zt1135 Notebook
The battery is completely dead and/or wont charge. So the battery has been removed. I think it will charge the battery if it stays on long enough. It worked fine plugged into the wall.
About 2 months ago, all of a sudden it quit. Worked with it, restarted it and it would run for 2 minutes and then completely loose power. Now it will stay running when it feels like it. But at any moment it cuts out. Some times it takes 5 - 6 times trying to start it before it decides to stay running for a bit. Sometimes when you wiggle the cord it cuts out, other times it doesnt. Could it be the power cord? Or the port that the power cord is plugged into?
Try to check the adapter jack with a multitester and see if there is any voltage (take note of the polarity = red test prod goes to the inner part of the jack and the black test prod goes to the outer part) set your multimeter to 12v dc. then try to move the jack with the test prod connected in a swinging motion and see if the voltage drops and comes up. if it does then you have a defective jack.

Whenever you plug the adapter to your laptop, there is a small pilot light which lights up. if it doesn't light up that means your adapter is not charging your battery. if it does, then maybe you should change your battery. just a little tip : it would harm your pc if it often goes off unexpectedly or improperly shuts down.
