Question about HP Pavilion dv4000 Notebook

1 Answer

Shot down of laptop

It doesn't matter what time of day it is my computer shots down like there is a power shortage. It even shot downs the battery. I've tried it without the power supply it doesn't shot down as long as there is full battery. I've tried the other way around just on power no battery it still shots down. I've checked the adapter it seem good.

It can be two things. One is the adapter for the power cord in your computer has been damaged and may not fully operate or your power supply has a fault it in somewhere. Test the adapter in your laptop with another similar power supply and if it works you know its the current power supply you have, if not its the adapter and it needs to be replaced and sometimes that can mean a whole new motherboard depending on what brand and model laptop you use.

Hope This Helps

Buy a proper NiMH rechargeable batteries (Sanyo Eneloop for example). Modern cameras will drain alkaline batteries in the matter of hours, not days.

Gateway 500xl pc will not turn on power button is lit up yellow


A LOT of Gateway computers will go into this catatonic state because of a dead battery. The battery is on the motherboard -- it looks like a metal disk about 1" in diamter. Check it or replace it. This applies to laptops too (not the actual laptop battery, the CMOS battery -- a laptop will have one on the motherboard too)

Hope this helps

Battery appears charged, but computer will only run when plugged in


does your battery have one of those charge indicator panels on bottom?

also, it's possible that the connection from battery to the internals is shot..if that's the case, then you're looking at a major motherboard swap
