It might sound like your power supply has broken cables in it somewhere. It may still charge but only because the power comes on and off sometimes. Have a look and see if you can find and defects or broken wires in the cable, and take it to get repaired. If This is not the case then it could very well be the board going faulty and over time it can stop working.

Hope This Helps

Compaq M2000 turns on using charged laptop battery but doesn't charge or turn on when using power adaptor, with or without the laptop battery


1) The AC adapter should ALWAYS be plugged into the laptop FIRST, then plugged into AC power. If not, this could create a voltage spike.

2) Let's look at the DC Power Jack, for the Compaq Presario M2000 series of Notebook PC's,

http://www.notebookparts.com/products/description.php?II=9741

The DC Power Jack is mounted to a removable circuit board.
Enlarging the view of the jack, shows us there is an Inductor.

The small 'can' standing up on the power board. This chipset could have gone south. (Bad)

How to know? Replace it, or dig out your dual trace oscilloscope. See if the Inductor works.

Could also just be cracked solder joints, of the DC Power Jack, TO that small circuit board. Solution would be to resolder it/them.

[ I WOULD however, search for a BETTER price, than listed in the link above, IF available ]

DC Power Jack is in good shape, soldered tight to the motherboard, and ruled out as the problem?
(Since you know the AC adapter is good)

Then the problem would be the Inductor on that power board, or power correcting chipset.

What one is it? Dunno.
DO KNOW is has J leads on the bottom.
CAN give examples, and perhaps you can identify using them.

The rechargeable battery needs to be replaced, the old one is just about exhausted. Go to www.ebay.com Type: make and model of laptop, refine search to battery, and I recommend sticking with new genuine.

"battery doesn t charge how do I know if the power cord or the battery is bad on my Presario M2000


If the battery is over a year old then it could be dead.Anything over two years I would bet on it. Usually the power bricks are very reliable. To check it you just need to put a power meter on it and check the voltage against what is printed on the brick. It should be slightly higher.

Without a meter it is pretty hard to check. You should get some indication that it is plugged in. It may have a power light on the brick or the laptop that shows it on even if it wont charge.

Friend if that happens that it will not turn on after doing such things I suggest to remove first your DVD burner and installed back your Memory.be sure it is seated firmly in its position try to see the marking on your memory and on your mainboard.then try to reboot your pc. after rebooting if it powers on so thats the time you go back again in putting back your DVD burner. Remember dont install your DVD burner unless your pc turns on to avoid misleading. try to do it bro. good luck hope i helped you.

Battery won't charge


Hello,
This is true, you will not be able to charge the battery without the correct charger. For mostly all laptops, when the charger is not maintaining a charge, it is time for a new one. However, it does not have to be the manufacturer's adapter, but I recommend purchasing the battery made for the Compaq Presario M2000 Notebook.
NextTag.com has decent deals on these adapters. http://www.nextag.com/ac-adapter-compaq-presario-m2000/search-html

I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
Thank You, Raph30

New battery will not charge


Hi, Well, first, do you have the correct ac adapter?It's possible to have an adapter that will run the system, but not provide enough juice to run the machine AND charge the battery. Did you replace the battery with a brand new one? Thanks
