Compaq laptop does not charge

I bought a new charger but I think something is loose on the inside of the laptop because the charging light just flashes. Help please!

  • Anonymous Jan 08, 2009

    About 4 months ago, my Compaq laptop stopped receiving charge and I bought another adapter and that worked fine for a while. About 3 weeks ago, the same thing started happening. Unlike last time, though, I can make the laptop register that the cord is, in fact, plugged in everywhere it needs to be, if I push the cord really hard into its spot on the computer. Otherwise, it won't charge. It must be something on the inside of the computer, but I don't know what or how to fix it. Any suggestions?

    I have the same problem. I have had my laptop for over a year and suddenly a few weeks ago it started stopping and starting charging and now it has stopped charging completely. Sometimes if I push the charger in it works for a minute or so but then turns off again. Help!!

SOURCE: Loose battery cord

As a tech I have seen this too many times! But good luck use it while you can, but at one point it'll be a 40 minute battle to check get it on just to check your email... Hm.. 3 routes... Replace the power jack, buy one with a bad screen, no hard drive, or memory and use it to charge your battery (very inconvenient), or buy something else and be very careful with the jack

Good luck though

Acer aspire 4743 not charging but all Okay.....


The solution to your problem lies in one of the following three areas:

1.) Your acer aspire 4743 charger is faulty and is therefore not able to pass power to your laptops battery.

2.) The charging connector on the laptop has come loose from the contacts. Therefore a bad connection.

3.) Your battery is faulty.

I think possibility 2 is the most likely, although you will have to test possibility 3 by removing the battery and plugging in your charger and seeing if the laptop powers on.If it does power on then that rules out possibility 1 and 2 leaving a faulty battery.

Hey my compaq labtop battery wont work i tried everything like charging all night -nothing please if you know how to fix this please e-mail me at jessezink@yahoo.com


The battery may have a failed protective device inside of it. If it new, the battery should be covered by warranty.

When the battery is installed in laptop and charger plugged in, there should be a light on laptop that lights up to show it is plugged into a charging source/ power source.

if the light does not light, see if it will light up with battery removed from laptop. If it does not light up, and you cannot power up the laptop- the power supply has failed.

I have a HP/Compaq 6510b laptop computer and it will not turn on...I have the charger plugged in and the only thing happening is the green light periodically flashes...Is the battery bad?


IF the battery is bad the charge lndicator on the laptop will flash (But not periodically) it will be a constant on-off-on-off..... Best check would be to remove the battery completely and use the adapter/charger power supply only. If it still does not turn on then you either have a bad power jack connection or a more serious motherboard problem. Also is the green light flashing on the adapter/charger or is it the charge/battery indicator on the laptop?

Asus netbook ac power cord adapter stopped working...no blue light on...not charging computer...what to do and need new one?


You need a replacement AC adapter, it's very cheap online.
1)Output Voltage is within +/- 5% of your old charger's output.
2) Output Current is the same or higher than that of your old charger.
3) Connector tip must fit securely into your laptop.

Acer aspire 3050 new battey will not charge


Sometimes batteries need a full 24 hr initial charge before they will work. You would be advised not to use the M/C during this period. Also it will take several charges before the battery reaches it's optimal performance.

This could be the problem so it's worth a try.

Acer laptop won't charge.


When you finally get the charge light to come on, does the battery get fully charged? How long can it run while not plugged in?
A junker will not charge properly, or hold a charge for a short period of time. If this is the case, time to get a new battery.
If the battery seems to charge fine and the uptime is acceptable take a look at the charger and connectors, make sure their clean and free of debris. Maybe try to locate someone with the same charger and see if the problem continues (Some computer shops may have your charger)

My dell inspiron 6000 wont charge but i dont think the battery is the problem. The powerlead also still has its light on so must be still working. Any suggestions?


Hi,


Could you check the output voltage of charger with multimeter? If you find output voltage then your charger is OK, Might be some problem with charging cirucit diagram of the laptop. If no output then replace your charger with new one having same specification.


Just remember to take your time and don't get nervous working on the computer. Please report back to the thread the results of your work.
