Question about HP Compaq Presario R4000 Notebook
The power cord is torn a little not much.....i think i heard from a friend it could be the motherboard? its like it will not charge!! the model is compaq presario r4000!! HELP ME....how much would it cost for a mother board? can they be installed eaisly by me?
You need to check the power cord, borrow, beg or steal one to test. If the laptop does not charge with a different power cord then the problem is elsewhere eg. a faulty power pack or even a faulty connector that plugs into the laptop (borrow a multi-meter to check the voltage of your power pack), also borrow a power pack to test your laptop, before you buy or send it away for a quote/repair.
If you determine that the laptop is faulty, then the cost of replacing a motherboard would not be worth it, even if you found one, it would most likely be a second hand one and how would you know it works, also if you are not technically minded you will it difficult to swap motherboards and it may not work when you put it together.
I suggest you put your money towards a new laptop, it will be faster and better.

Check your DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugs
into the computer is bad. Take an ink pen and push the tip inside the
jack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have to
take the laptop apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto the
motherboard, so you will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.
