HP Compaq Presario CQ60 Won't Charge

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?

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.


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.

To be very sure of what the problem is, try to test the your laptop with a another friend's battery, or through a technician first. If it powers, then try and test the laptop again with another AC Adapter, from someone who uses the same type, or a technician.
Trying out these two things will give you a clearer and better idea of what might have gone wrong.
Hope it helps you out.
Goodluck!

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.

Laptop shuts down when using battery


If thelaptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to anunacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

You need to replace your old battery. Don't over charged your battery. If you are using your laptop in your house it is better not to use it with battery. Just use the power adaptor/supply only. Then make sure you will drain the battery let say once a week. =)

MY cOMPAQ pRESARIO CQ60 fell and cant complete boot


Most likely in this case, the damage is to the hard drive or its connection to the motherboard. The CQ series though has a three point screw attachment for the hard drive so Im more inclined to think that the shock of the landing has damaged the read/write head on the hard drive. If you happen to have another hard drive for a laptop, try installing a new drive and run the installation disc and see if it will complete and boot completely....if it will then the problem was the old drive.
