Question about HP Hewlett Packard Compaq 6720s Laptop Computer - Intel Core 2 Duo T5270 1.4GHz, 802.11a/b/g Wireless, 2GB DDR2, 160 PC Notebook
Loose connection? Overheating? Laptop runs off mains power however battery still holds charge so if loose connection between say power jack and motherboard would power not still come from battery? Other info:- running windows vista home basic/ unit around 4 yrs old/ new power jack fitted around 18 months ago - no problems until about a month ago. Base of laptop around power jack area and back of screen at bottom very hot (this has always been the case even when laptop was new - problem disappeared for around 6 months after new jack fitted but then returned) Have tried different power adapters to confirm not causing problem. Doesn't seem to be caused by running any particular program. Fully checked for viruses etc..
Sounds like a loose connection where the laptop opens and closes hinge there are wires that run from the main screen to the main board. If you know how to take the unit apart it maybe a cheap fix if not then a new laptop maybe the way to go the prices have really dropped from 4 years ago

lala linda is right. . . repairing the power pin isn't that expensive ... In fact I've fixed some myself and it's really not that hard. It is time consuming and tedious to make sure that all the bits and pieces fo back in the right place. Take some pix as you take it apart and you will find that's it much easier when you go to re-assemble the unit. btw . . . The power pins are available on the net for $ 10 or less usually.
Also . . .Once you get it fixed get a Cable retention device to make sure you don't damage the pin a second time. Personally I recommend (and use) this one.

I would suggest replacing your battery pack there must be something shorted in it. Don't try to use it anymore or you might face a lot of trouble in your laptop in the future.

Chances are the batter is bad. Did you just purchase the notebook? You may want to try swapping the battery in your laptop with the other laptop you tested the adapter on. If you do need a new battery, here is a link
