    The exact same problem. No thunderstorm though. It snowed last night and the current went out at 4:30am. I have 2 computers. 1 is a Gateway, the other is a Compaq. The Gateway started OK, but the Compaq is dead. There is a green light on the back of the tower right under the power cord connection that's flashing. But no response when I hit the power button. This same thing happened about a year ago. But, it eventually started working again on it's own. Never knew why!

My 6000 also died in a thunder storm with power surges.  Power seems to be coming in to the cord, but the ON/OFF button on the front does not turn the computer on.  Totally black screen, with no response.  Hoping for help too.

Dell inspiron 630m laptop. turned it on, programmes started up then died. turn it on now nothing on screen but there is power. no fan running all the time or overheating. think it might be the video card...


> no power
> no fan running

Remove the battery.

Disconnect the AC power adapter.
Use a "multimeter" to test the voltage/amperage output from the adapter.

Connect the AC power-adapter, and try to turn the computer on.
If nothing happens, then the computer's motherboard has "died".

Take the computer to a qualified technician, for professional trouble-shooting.

Have a compaq presario running win 7. The system does not recognize when it is running on ac power (original ac adapter). The battery charges but the only sign of this is the battery icon says xx%...


Hi, it seem as if your battery is faulty you should try another battery to see if the computer will recognize when it is charging, you can also try your battery in another compaq presario computer to see if it will have the same problem.

My power supply for my Presario V6000 died due to broken wires. The battery powered the computer until it died. Now, the new adapter will not power the computer.


This is a common eevnt the battery get so flat that the adapter will not charge it quickly.. You need to leave it totally alone for at least 8 - 12 hours... To see if the adapter actually works and PC is good, take OUT the battery, and plug IN the PSU, the PC will work, sans battery just on PSU. If OK, then charge up as related. It will do it after a ling time.. Sometimes batteries go so flat they are ruined, sa a new one may have to be gotten IF it does NOT charge up.

Plugged in running on ac power doesnt charge battery


battery could be bad, charger could be bad, or the jack needs to be replaced. If you cannot replace the jack yourself, I can do it for you.

You'll need a multimeter to troubleshoot the problem

Hp compaq nx7400 - battery died and power cord will not turn comp


Some laptops will not power up with a completely discharged or faulty battery. Remove the battery from the laptop, plug in the power cord and try to boot the system. If the system boots, your battery needs to be replaced. Replace your battery as soon as you can, it's not a good idea to run the laptop for extended periods with an open battery bay.

Compaq presario v6000 laptop plugged in but not chargin


YOU NEED TO RECALIBRATE YOUR BATTERY. FIRST UNPLUG THE POWER CORD AND LET YOUR BATTERY RUN ALL THE WAY DOWN TO 5%. THEN PLUG YOUR POWER CORD BACK UP AND LET IT RE-CHARGE THE COMPUTER. SOMETIMES WHEN YOU FREQUENTLY UNPLUG YOUR AC ADAPTER YOUR BATTERY FORGETS HOW MUCH POWER IS ACTUALLY AVAILABLE IN CONJUNCTION TO WHAT THE BATTERY METER IS SHOWING. RECALIBRATING THE BATTERY WILL RE-SET THE METER WITH THE BATTERY.

COMPAQ Presario v6000 dead, Period


Hi there.
Remove the battery and try it on AC power only, if it boots up turn it back off and put the battery back in again and power it up again, if it boots up, the cause will have a small surge from the power strip caused by the thunder storm.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

Compaq Presario V6000 Power Problem


Sounds like the power supply might have died, probably before the battery did. Once the battery had run down, the computer simply died. Easiest way to check this would be to take it to a computer shop - they shouldn't charge you very much just to check the power supply - or try to locate another supply just like it and see if the computer will boot from the new power supply.
