The sparking has probably caused your circuit protection inside the AC adapter to turn off the current.
Also, when you are plugging an adapter in,,do not have it plugged into the wall power outlet when plugging into the laptop,,,plug into the laptop first and then plug into the wall.

Any solutions to my notebook problems


The first thing to always try is resetting your PC. With a laptop, you must unplug it and remove the battery. While the laptop is unplugged and the battery removed, hold down the power button for a minimum of 30 seconds. This will reset the PC. Plug it back in and see if it works now. Always try to reset the PC first, for many different problems.

Compaq Presario M2000 stopped turning on


If there is no power going to the laptop then disconnect battery and hold the reset button in for 30 seconds, then try it again. Sometimes the memory can be damaged which can cause the laptop not to boot..?

Compaq M2000 turns on using charged laptop battery but doesn't charge or turn on when using power adaptor, with or without the laptop battery


1) The AC adapter should ALWAYS be plugged into the laptop FIRST, then plugged into AC power. If not, this could create a voltage spike.

2) Let's look at the DC Power Jack, for the Compaq Presario M2000 series of Notebook PC's,

http://www.notebookparts.com/products/description.php?II=9741

The DC Power Jack is mounted to a removable circuit board.
Enlarging the view of the jack, shows us there is an Inductor.

The small 'can' standing up on the power board. This chipset could have gone south. (Bad)

How to know? Replace it, or dig out your dual trace oscilloscope. See if the Inductor works.

Could also just be cracked solder joints, of the DC Power Jack, TO that small circuit board. Solution would be to resolder it/them.

[ I WOULD however, search for a BETTER price, than listed in the link above, IF available ]

DC Power Jack is in good shape, soldered tight to the motherboard, and ruled out as the problem?
(Since you know the AC adapter is good)

Then the problem would be the Inductor on that power board, or power correcting chipset.

What one is it? Dunno.
DO KNOW is has J leads on the bottom.
CAN give examples, and perhaps you can identify using them.

Will not power up


FirewallAvat: Your problem is likely because your battery is dead and the adapter isn't charging it. This may be due to broken connections in the cable from the adapter. Flexing often causes the wire inside to break near the plug. Generic replacement adapters are available, or the wire can be cut back a bit and a suitable replacement soldered on. The cause might also be broken solder connections on the main board at the power jack, This is common from stress due to the power plug flexing. It is usually possible to open the computer and resolder these connections, although sometimes there's too much damage from arcing before the connection fails entirely.

DocBrown: Does the power LED on your computer come on when you connect the adapter? If not, try the adapter in another outlet anyway. Sometimes one outlet in a strip can go bad. Check the output of the adapter with a voltmeter. If it's bad, replace it or try repairing it as noted above. If the adapter is good but the light isn't on, you might have the bad power jack as well.

Compaq presario M2000 power cord won't charge my laptop


Check that your power adapter is working fine it may be that the power cable is broken somewhere between the adapter and the laptop. You could try another charger / adapter.

Dead laptop


Check the ac adapter is the proper one for that laptop. Check the power jack is not damaged or loose. let laptop site without battery or power for a few hours. remove battery and retry power. try another ac adapter if that doesn't work, you may have a reset button but not likely to solve the problem. sounds like motherboard is damaged, or something blew.
