Question about HP Pavilion dv1170us (PR425UA) PC Notebook

1 Answer

My new battery won't take a charge. HP Dv1170us

My new battery won't take a charge.
Geek squad replaced the mother board under warrantee. I gave the laptop to my daughter to use. after 1.5 months she came to me complaining that the battery was always dead. Geek squad only warantees new Moboards for 30days. makes no sense at all.

This was a great laptop except for the weak usb ports, thats why it was replaced. I just bought my college age daughter a new one from best buy. Now i'm wondering what will happen if her laptop has a problem?

Are you sure everything is plugged in correctly? Look on the cord and make sure there are no "shorts" in it becuase sometimes it can have a "short" circuit to it, even if it's new!

try reseating the memory cards in the notebook if the lights come on but no display usually memory cards have been knocked loose.
that is one defect that they have is memory cards come loose if the laptop has been jarred from being in a car getting bounced around in the seat etc.
the memory cards control a portion of the video and if the memory cards lose connection you loose video.

If you do not want to repair the laptop, you can remove the hard drive from the laptop and put the hard drive in an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as an external USB hard drive. To free up disk space on this hard drive, just delete the Windows folder and programs off this hard drive and just leave your data files.

Dell xps m1210 won't power up with new battery. Check notes.


If it is working fine with a fresh battery then it is not a motherboard problem. It is either a bad ac adapter jack on the motherboard or the actual ac adapter cord is not working. Try cables2go.com as they have replacement ac adapters for almost everything under the sun. Hope this helps.

Christine.

Go back to best buy. the closest one to you. and see about yoru exteneded warranty. Toshiba dont deal with the extended warrentys.A 3rd party company is looking after it for you (best buy) i guess geek squad.. If the warrenty is out and you gotta pay 600 dollors to replace your computer motherboard. all depending on what you use it for an entry level laptop is close to 600 dollors great for web browseing and office use school, some games.
