Question about HP Compaq Presario V2000 Notebook

1 Answer

Computer won't start.

It's not that the battery doesn't work, because the small lightning symbol comes on when i plug the adapter in. when i press the power button, the caps lock and scroll buttons light up as they're supposed to every time you start the computer...but then they keep blinking, and so does the light from the dvd-rom, and the OS itself never starts up. the lights just blink forever until i shut the computer off. nothing loads. please help me out someone because if i lose this computer i lose everything i've ever done for the past 2 years. thanks

My laptop won't turn on, and the charger doesn't seem to be doing anything. even when plugged in, it won't start. ideas?

You've to replace the ac adapter, if it's brick doesn't get warm or LED does not glow on Power Jack on the laptop. offcourse, check with the wall different sockets

power jack can also be loose. so jiggle the cable to find out.

if notebook is getting power, you can remove the battery, ac adapter, hold and keeep pressing poer button for a minute, then, turn it on.

finally, you can take out hdd and ram, put them back again and turn on the laptop. hope it will help

I have a gateway ma7 laptop and press power and get nothing

When the computer is off, unplug the power cord from the laptop and then plug it back in. See if the charge light (lightning bolt symbol next to the led) comes on or turns green/blue. If it doesn't your power supply may not be working, even if the light on the supply is on. Second is the battery may be damaged. Remove the battery and see if you can power on at all.
If it boots with only the cord, the battery is bad/shorted forcing shutdown.

Is it an amber lightning bolt? (I am assuming thats what you mean by UNDER lightning symbol)

That is the charging symbol for your battery, it means your battery is being charged by your power adapter.
