The power jack on the system board may be loose or disconnect. The only way to check it is to plug in the AC adapter and wiggle the connector , if it feels loose then that is the problem. The other way to find out, is taking out the motherboard and checking it.

The fact that the battery was charged when you receive it tells me that the seller knew about the problem. He probably held the adapter plug in such a way that the battery got charged.

Sounds like you were cheated out of your money. Hopefully you just need to replace you Power Supply Cord and it will work fine because my guess it has broken wires and that caused the shutdown. If this does nit work, Your motherboard has been short circuited and this will never be fixed, it needs to be replaced and this is costly so it may be better to get whole new laptop. Buy a new Power cord and maybe a new battery if you feel you need to, but if they don't work, your laptop is dead

Compaq N610c does not power on on AC adapter or on Battery :(


Hello,

it might be that the AC adapter is no more working. To confim this, remove the laptop battery and test the AC adapter with the laptop.

You can also borrow a friend's AC adapter and test it with your laptop.

I wish you good luck.

Hi forum, I have been using Compaq N610c notebook and was working fine but was not power ON . on AC adapter but it was working on Battery. From last day, the battery become zero showing battery indicator...


It's possible that the AC adapter "died", and then your computer ran on battery-power until the battery went to 0%.

Or, the socket on the laptop where the AC adapter connects could have broken, or become disconnected from the motherboard, such that the power from the AC adapter was not being accepted, meaning that your computer was running on battery-power.

Take the AC adapter and the computer to a qualified technician, who can test that the AC adapter is working fine, and can disassemble the laptop, to inspect that socket where it connects.

Docking station fror compaq Evo n610c


docking station for my old compaq armada did not "charge seperately" but did supply power to the pc through docking connector and not through the normal ac input, cant say if they have their own power transformers or not, till i go home and take my old docking station apart. Will the computer not power up when plugged in, it normally will run off ac power even when battery is dead or removed.

No power


You sound like you have either a dead power supply inside or a dead motherboard. Best thing is to open it up and test each. replace the culprit.

Laptop not charging


Unfortunately on most Compaq/HP mobile devices the AC pin is soldered directly onto the motherboard. If the pin is severely bent of broken off then a service is required, usually to replace the motherboard. Having the broken off like then can actually create a minor crack in the PCB. Sorry for the bad news.
