When we will open the laptop the attachments of edges were broken and wires are also dismissed. what the solution for this

For the future, the solution is take a better care of the laptop and do not let the dog chew on it, like it used to eat the homework.
As for the present, the laptop must be repaired by a qualified technician.

How do i hardwire Compaq cq62 power cord. Dog chewed the end of mine off where the jack is

Most likely there are two wires a + and - power wires.
If you strip the broken ends of the wires on the plug and the end of the broken cable then you can solder the broken ends of the wire together. make sure the colors of the wires match and the wires are insulated so they do not short against each other.

My acer aspire one notebook won't boot up.

Is the new cord/charger/transformer the EXACT same power specs? When your "dog ate your charger", it may have shorted out something in the Laptop? Was it plugged it when your dog ate it?

Laptop keyboard does not work after dog laid on computer

Tell dog to grab it's allowance, and buy you a new laptop


Then protest around the dog daily until it does

(No, you have to feed it)

[Hold the dog's chew toy for ransom. Chew on it a little bit so dog will get the message.
"Hey! Ain't kidding around here! Laptop or I keep this!" ]


Remove ALL power. Remove the AC adapter (Charger), and Battery.
Press the Power On button, and hold it in for a count of 10 seconds.
(And I mean 10. Count; 1001,..1002,..1003,...etc)

Let go of the Power On button. Do this procedure two more times.
Reinstall Battery, THEN reattach AC adapter to laptop, and THEN plug AC adapter into power.

WAIT 1 minute,....turn the laptop on.

Post back in a Comment.

My battery won't charge why not

If it's connected properly, that sounds like a dead battery. Try wrapping it in something waterproof and freezing it overnight. If that doesn't work, replace it.

Hi, it most likely has burnt out the sub board which has the DC socket on it and/or the motherboard. But I would point it almost completely at this sub board. You would also need to replace your AC adaptor as it has a "smart chip" inside it which would have also fried. Your battery is most likely ok. Hope this helps

My dog chewed my power cord. Dh "spliced" and taped for now. The laptop will work with power cord, but battery will not hold ANY sort of charge. Is the problem my cord or the battery now?

ask the dog.....!!!
ok sorry jokes apart...

was the battery working before ur dog helped u out...
remove the power cord and check how long ur battery can hold on till it dies down...when ur notbook is ON

if it holds for more than 10 mins then the battery will charge if the power cord gives it enough power to charge, else u may have a power adaptor that gives enough for notebook to work but not enough for the battery to charge at the same time....
u may have to change both the adaptor and battery....or else change the dog...ha ha ha...
u r the best judge....ask the dog to do some work on it may be......
just kidding....
