Question about HP Compaq Presario V2000 Notebook

3 Answers

Problems with power or battery, not totally sure.

I was having problems with the laptop switching from battery power to outlet power, for about a week. It would be plugged in but anytime I even just slightly moved it would switch. I figured I had problems with my cord so I bought a new one. It just arrived today, I plugged it in and powered up the laptop (which was completly dead) it started right up, no problems. But now it's doing to same exact thing. Right now its on the floor next to me, i'm not even moving it and its still switching back and forth. I don't know what the problem is, but as I use the computer its super important I get it fixed!! I would reeeeeeeeallly appreciate any help anyone could offer. Thanks in advance, Priscilla

Sounds like a power pin issue. Most laptop power pins are poorly designed and poorly constructed. Doesn't take much tugging or pulling to break them loose inside and cause problems. The part is only $ 5-10 but the labor to replace the part is $ 100-250 depending on who does the work.

Once you get it fixed you need one of these. . . In fact EVERY laptop needs one of these. . .

It sounds like a faulty ac power jack connector(where you plug ac adapter in), it may be that it requires re soldering or replacing around the motherboard area. I would take to a local pc repairer for repair or replacement.

Check your laptop's AC adapter. Ensure the laptop's AC adapter is snugly plugged into the port on the back of the . Also, check its connection into either the wall socket or the surge protector, depending on your setup. Make sure the AC adapter is securely in one of these outlets and not loose. Also, if the adapter is plugged directly into the wall, try another outlet. Your existing outlet may be blown.

Check your monitor brightness settings. Sometimes these settings get accidentally turned all the way down, which results in what appears to be a dead laptop battery or malfunctioning power supply, but is really just a simple fix. Your laptop has dedicated brightness keys at the top of the keyboard, directly above the numeric keys. Adjust the brightness settings here.

Look at the battery indicator light if your laptop appears to be out of battery or suffering a power failure. If it is not flashing or indicating a power problem, your laptop's "LCD closed switch" may be malfunctioning. This switch acts as a sensor which normally judges whether your laptop is open or closed. Sometimes this switch gets stuck in the "closed" position, resulting in the laptop believing it is shut and thus the monitor's back-light staying off. This switch is located right beside either the left or right hinge at the bottom of your laptop's display . Tap this switch multiple times with your finger to attempt to free it up and get it out of the closed position.

Consider whether your laptop's battery has completely died and needs to be replaced. Average laptop batteries last for approximately 1000 charges, after which point they either gradual deteriorate and have trouble holding a charge, or simply fail altogether.
Eventually your laptop's battery will have to replaced, and if none of the other troubleshooting steps yielded results this is likely the source of your perceived power supply problems. Flip over your laptop and locate the horizontal outline of the battery, which will be at the top center of the bottom of your computer.

Notice the battery release mechanism on the bottom of your laptop, which should be directly below the horizontal outline of the battery. Slide this release mechanism to the left to disengage the battery and gently pop it out. The laptop's power supply may now be replaced.

    Battery doesn't appear to be charging.


    There may be several physical problems. You should make sure that the battery is properly plugged in and no switches that allow it to be removed are in the open position. Checking that the power cord if plugged in proper at the laptop, the power brick, and the power outlet may also solve the problem. If none of these work, try using a different power cord that fits your laptop if you can get your hands on one. You may also want to try a different power outlet, or make sure that power outlet can power another device (eg vacuum, phone) so you know if it's actually a problem with that power outlet and not your computer.

    If you battery doesn't charge even with a cable that you know works for another computer, and the outlet is working properly, your battery may be corroded or suffering from over-use over a long period of time. In this case it would be best to buy a replacement battery directly from Dell which you can do here:

    If your laptop has a bad battery, will the computer still be able to turn on when plugged into a power outlet?


    If your battery is totally drained or dead, your laptop will not turn on even when plugged in to power outlet. The power from the charger don't have enough power to pass through the battery that is trying to charge. Remove the battery and you will be able to turn on your laptop when plugged in directly to wall outlet.

    Laptop is not responding


    1) Try holding down the power button for 5 secs. Let go and try to turn it on again. This is a signal that bypasses the OS and tells the motheboard to power down. This helps if the computer is actually still running but with no display.
    2) If that does not work, unplug the computer, remove the battery and leave it at for 1 min. Replace the battery, plug it in and try to turn it on again. Corrupt data in RAM can cause problems like yours, this clears out the RAM so you start fresh.

    If the above did not help it might be your motherboard. A bad motherboard does not usually damage your data. You can remove the hard drive and put it in a portable hard drive enclosure (about $30), the enclose plugs into a USB slot in a working computer and shows up as another hard drive.

    Check to make sure your power is ok, I ran into a situation where the power bar was accidentally turned off and then the battery ran down.

    Have power cord plugged into asus eee machine and wall outlet. light has been blinking all day. when asus eee gets unplugged it shuts off.


    lets try this ---

    * turn of your computer
    * remove the plug from your computer.
    * Remove the battery from your computer
    * Let it sit for 3-5 minutes
    * Replace the battery
    * Plug your computer back in (Make sure the wall outlet is working as well, seems simple, but have seen it before)
    * Let it sit for about 3-5 minutes
    * Boot your computer
    * go to
    Start -> Control Panel -> Power Options -> Power Meter
    Note the Total Battery Power Remaining

    * Let your computer sit for 15-30 Minutes and see if the Total Battery Power Remaining has gone up.

    If so problem solved

    if not you may be time for a new battery.
