Question about HP Compaq nc6320 Notebook

1 Answer

Laptop does not charge.

Hi guys, this is a question for the hardcore hardware guys out there.

I reently bought a laptop where it will not charge.
The computer works fine, however, it just will not charge. If i take the battery from another of the same laptop, the computer works fine, it just doesent recognize the charger.

The charger works fine, but the "third pin" in it, just, hmm, i think that it is a kind of enabling pin, and because the idiot whom i bought the laptop from thought he could bypass the psu and just connect a lab-psu, so he had 18V at the third pin of the psu.

So, finally my question.

Is it possible to bypass the enbaling pin, or do i need to find the enabling circuit, and replace the broken parts?

I hope you can help

Kinly Regards

Sounds like you have some hardcore malware. You might need to do a system reformat. When you turn on your laptop if you turn on your computer and all you see is this, the hardware could be damaged which would be an odd case. But I'll stick with my first thought. You need that cleaned up.

Acer laptop 4730z wont power up

Hello. There is a hardware failure with the laptop not your acer 4730 AC charger. AC chargers have some range of protections of their own. If the power requirements of the laptop are bigger then what the charger can handle, the charger will turn off. Also other parameters can bring the charger offline. In your case, you have a problem with a small chip, the battery charge controller unit, witch regulates the amount of current required to propperly charge the battery. When this thing fails, the charging requirements for the battery are reported rong and the AC charger is forced to give more power then necesary. This results in disconnection of the AC charger ( an internal fail safe of the AC charger) and the laptop to swich back to battery power. When the laptop is turned off, it can charge the battery because the power requirements are low, having all processor, main board, hard disk etc turned off. Therefore the AC charger can handle the load. However you will need to have it checked by a service center as it is a hardware fault. Both AC charger and laptop needs that check. The charge controll circuit needs to be replaced probably. It will be a somewhat expensive repair. Don't buy any other battery untill you have the laptop checked.

T20 batteries wont stay charged

It might be that you are using older batteries. However, you should try dimming your backlight to the lowest possible setting and performing any other power-saving actions such as limiting the processor's power (if available on your laptop.) Hope this helps.

Lost Recovery CD's

You can request the cd's from Toshiba, although they will charge, the pics etc will be lost unless they can be retrieved by the warranty company, although they will also charge for that.
