I have a 4-year-old HP Compaq Presario CQ60. Last

I have a 4-year-old HP Compaq Presario CQ60. Last night it shut itself down, due to low power, even though the charger was plugged in. Now, when the charger is plugged in the power supply indicator light stays on. When I try to power up the machine, however, the CHARGING light flashes three times, and nothing happens. I have tried just the battery, and just the power cord, and still the same results. What should I do?

It looks as if the LED code would indicate a memory issue. Three blinks in a row.

Turn the laptop over, remove the panel over the RAM, remove the DIMMs (it will likely have 2 in it), place one in at a time and try powering the system on.

One of the two is likely bad although it is possible (although very unlikely) that both are bad. It should boot up when the good DIMM is in place. Once you have identified the bad one, buy a replacement or possible choose to upgrade the total amount of RAM.

SOURCE: I have a toshiba laptop,

Change your AC charger.
It's NOT charging "When the laptop is plugged into the AC, the power meter in windows tells me that the power source is still batteries, and the battery level drops by about 1% every few hours"
That's the reason why: "battery has completely died"
If you do not change it you'll continue to "still it gives me the same low battery indication and will not turn on. "

SOURCE: my compaq presario v5000 shut down and wont restart

My Presario v5000 is doing the same as above. Except, I let it cool for a little while and it turned on. Now it only turns off after a while. I'm not to sure exactly why that is but i could possibly be an over heating automatic shutdown procedure.

Seems to be a problem of not enough power.

First check the voltage output of the charger(adapter) and match it with its specs.


Also try to reset the hardware using the following steps:

1 Disconnect battery and the charger
2 Let it sit for 1-2 minutes.
3 Press and hold down the power button for 30 seconds.
4 Reconnect battery and charger and try to start by pressing the power button.

Three blinks in a row is the LED code for a memory issue.

Turn the laptop over, remove the panel over the RAM, remove the DIMMs (it will likely have 2 in it), place one in at a time and try powering the system on.

Presario cq60 the power will just cut off. it seems like it gets hot very quickly. it says before loading that the internal battery is low. is there another battery other than the one that can come out...


if you flip it over and remove the hard drive cover you will see the internal battery...that needs to be replaced if you are getting that warning.......if its getting hot it possibly needs to just be cleaned out (blown out), yet there is a overheating issue on various HP (Compaq) models where the video chip gets hot and the unit shuts down or has problems booting up

Hi

Thank you for your query

Please can you try the following

Remove the battery
Remove the charger
Press and hold the power button in for 30 seconds
Plug battery and charger back in
Retry powering laptop

You mention it made a noise if it was like a buzzing or fizzlin noise it is likely that the jack on the motherboard may need replacing this is relativley inexpensive to do and a reputable repair shop will be able to help

My compaq presario just shuts down. When I go to


Typical reasons could be overheating and or the charger is on it's last legs. Do you have the same problems when you're using the computer with battery alone. Does the laptop feel hot?

The reason the charger is getting hot is because it's probably a 65W charger and not a 90W (that's just a guess though)

Let me know if I'm right or not.
