Question about Compaq Evo N610C Notebook
I plug it up for hours and when I try to turn it on it is still dead as if I never plugged it up.
Take a small screwdriver and try move around the DC-Jack in the back of your Laptop. If it seems wobbly and loose, that may be your issue, especially if the powerlight comes on intermittently when the charger is connected and you move the DC-Plug. Bend and twist the Laptop body as you try to turn it on. If it turns on only when you twist the laptop body, then the GPU or the southbridge may be loose (peripheral processors on the Laptop's motherboard). In the latter case you would need a new motherboard to get fully up and running again. Some places also offer a Logic Board Repair under certain circumstances: Laptop Repair NYC

Check if AC charger is working.

It is obviously not charging. Either the battery is defective, the power adapter is not getting power, the adapter itself is defective, you're not using correct adapter or power outlet is no good.
Try to see if theres any light at the laptops jack where you connect the power, if not theres no power getting in.
Try to remove and insert the battery again.
Make sure all power connections are secured
Try removing the battery and just plug it the power adaptor to isolate the problem.
Try another power outlet
If plug in to power strip, try resetting strip by turning off and on
If none of these work then you may have a defective jack in your laptop.

There is a possibility that the battery is defective.
Turn the laptop off and remove the battery and AC power. Clean the brass contacts on the battery and the laptop.
Plug in AC power only, boot the laptop up without the battery and go into the BIOS and set the BIOS to default settings. Save the changes and let the laptop boot into Windows. Once in Windows power down the laptop again and remove the AC power.
Reinsert the battery and AC power and boot the laptop up. See if that has helped.

Your laptop may need a hardware reset. Follow this.. Remove ac adapter and battery. Press the on button for 15-20 seconds the release. Connect your ac adapter and try powering on. If that does not work then try it again at least three times. Failing that your Cmos battery may be low voltage. Buy a new one (C2032) and install near Hdd compartment underneath large panel on bottom of laptop. Install and try hardware reset again. If works then upgrade firmware to F15. If no joy in power up then may be fault in adaptor plug socket on motherboard which would need specialist replacing. Mike W
