Hi there you can right click on the desktop go to the power settings and look for the battery and do a status check on it if it is discharged or low and it has been plugged in for a long time and the pc has been showing that it is being charged i would probably say that yes the battery is going bad

HP dv6000 laptop not charging problem, adapter, battery and power jack looks like it works fine


If your battery, charger, and DC Jack are ok, then the most common problem is the surface mount transistors on your HP's main board called MOSFET's. They are small 30V N channel 8 pin components soldered to the main board. The boards also have transistor circuits which switch back and forth between a charging and discharging state. However these rarely ever fail. The MOSFETS fail because of the thermal loads which they must endure. Although some notebooks (like the Gateway I'm currently on) have a DC jack which serves dual purpose of supplying DC 19V AND connecting/disconnecting charging circuit. However your HP dv6K does not.
However it's worth mentioning that these models have had all sorts of problems...most notably poor thermal design to begin with that usually creates solder connection problems with the main chipset especially on AMD models. Good luck.. :)

My HP G71T-400 laptop will not turn on. It worked fine Monday night and would not turn on Tuesday morning. I tried to turn on with the laptop plugged in and the battery removed. I also tried with the...


First I would check both the battery and the ac adapter with a multi-meter. If this does not solve the problem I would check the connection where the power plugs into the computer. If everything is tight and secure (no loose connections), I would say the machine will need to be opened up to inspect and test the internal components. Good luck!! I hope this information helps you in solving your problem.

My laptop was working just fine, then one day I went to turn it on and nothing happened. It may have shut down on its own by running out of battery.


Hello,

Remove the battery, plug it in and try the power button again. If it powers on, connect the battery and you are good to go. If still no good, have someone test the power adapter with a voltage meter. the power adapter may be dead. You can also go to a store that sells universal laptop power adapters, and test with one of them (with the battery removed.

Let me know what happens as I may be able to help some more.

Regards,

Joe

Describe how to run a laptop without the battery


Simply plug the wall charger in and take the battery out. It should run just fine. I have a Dell Lattitude D630 and do this all the time. I've also done it with other laptops

Says plugged in not charging


Take out the battery and make sure you can turn on the laptop with just the AC Adaptor hooked up.

If you can then you know the AC Adaptor is good. Try another known good working battery in the laptop, if the battery charges then you know that the old battery is bad.

If the laptop doesn't charge with a know working battery or a new one then you know that the motherboard is bad.

Inspiron laptop Battery won't charge


Try taking out battery and plug in power. If it works, battery is faulty. If not,
Try taking out your hard disk plug in power, if it works, hard disk is faulty. If not,
Try taking out memory card, if there's a sound, memory card faulty. If no sound, it's your motherboard that is causing the error.

Note: If machine is under warranty no need to pay for the repairs.

Laptop was working fine, but doesn't turn on anymore...


a5e3d98.jpg You might have a Loose DC Power Jack.. Or.. if you're using the same AC Power cord for both laptops that you tested, you apparently have a break(short) in the Power charging cord which is quite common...

To Test the cord..take the battery out and try to boot with just the AC power cord plugged in, If it does'nt power up, try turning and slightly twisting the plug into the port.. LOOK to see if the power light is on or flickers...

Shuts down


Is this laptop brand new? Because normally, when you plug in the power adapter, the battery charges up to 100% and stays there UNTIL the power adapter is unplugged. Then it will start to run down its power. It's not supposed to run down with the power adapter plugged in. Also, if you take out the battery and only plug in the power adapter, it should work fine. If it doesn't, then there's a problem with the adapter.

Notebook power problem


Good evening Arapa, Before I went any further I?d make sure the new A/C adaptor and battery are working correctly. Over the years I?ve had many brand new or refurbish parts wind up not working. Also verify that they are the correct ones for your laptop. The next candidate is the charging circuitry or power distribution in the laptop. Since it involves major disassembly I don?t usually recommend this option to the typical user unless they have experience working with and handling electronics, a good mechanical aptitude and are willing to live with the results of damaging the laptop beyond economic repair. Most times a local factory authorized and trained tech can give you a good estimate of what it will cost and save you the cost of buying test parts you may not need. Let us know how things turn out and don?t forget to rate the posting.
