HP Compaq plugged in & blue light on but icon says NOT plugged in
Hello hello hello experts. Urgent problem at hand..
I've got an HP Compaq Presario V6000 laptopthat's 2 years old. It is plugged in and the blue charge light is onaround where you plug the cord in (when I unplug the power cord theblue light turns off ) yet the icon on my desktop is saying it'srunning on battery life only and not plugged in at all. The laptopitself is functioning right now but the battery % is dwindling despitebeing plugged in. The block thing in the middle of the power cord(where you plug one part of the power cord into) isn't cold and I knowthat generally gets quite warm after the power cord has been plugged infor awhile (and it had been plugged in all night). Any ideas???

The motherboard of your laptop might have encountered a short circuit. If you've already removed and reseated all possible removable parts and still get the same result, purchase a replacement motherboard or check if it is still under warranty.
I imagine the orange flashing light is over the battery? The compaq laptops have a little blue light that will typically light up when it's plugged into the wall. If it is plugged in ensure that the little blue light is on. If it isnt you may have a n issue with your power supply unit, or there may be an issue with the port where the plug is plugged in. Thus causing the battery to be dead and the computer not power on. If you have any other compaq computers you can also try plugging in that power adapter, or try picking up a universal or another hp/compaq charger from somewhere such as best buy to test it out.

Try restoring the system to the last best configuration by going to Accessories on your Start Menu and clicking on System Tools>System Restore and find a day on the calendar and click on it to restore back to that date.
