Question about HP Pavilion Computers & Internet
I have a problem with my laptop, it turns off after about 30 minutes of use with the power cord attached, I use the ac cord because of a dead battery.....what could be causing this?
laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.
Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and
will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and
gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The
battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery
drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an
unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.
Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.

that could be one of many problems. bad power supply, loose power connector, zapped motherboard. that model as i recall, had those problems,

Kinda strange. Not turning on indicates a hardware problem, you made software changes. If the software changes caused a problem, it would start, just not boot to windows. I would first tryy to reset the laptop. Unplug it and remove the battery, hold down the power button for 60 seconds, then try again. If still no go, start removing hardware one at a time, hard drive, rem, wireless card, dvd rom. You may have a bad hard drive. Your pc should boot to bios if there is no hard drive installed. If that happens, run a diagnostic on your hard drive from your bios. Let me know if you need anything else.

Sometimes the AC port on the motherboard can become loose or disconnected and will cause the powercord to not charge to the batteries or run power to the motherboard. If you changed out the Power adapter and that didn't help, then this would be my best assumption. The AC connection on the motherboard can be replaced pretty easy by someone knowledgable in motherboard repair with sodering. Most of the time with this issue, a motherboard replacement is not required, Even though its alot easier to just replace the board. Most Repair places will probably talk you into replacing the board, even though its really not necessary, with this issue.

Below is a link to the service and maintenance guide. This will serve as a reference for disassembly. It is free to use, copy and print. It is in PDF format. I would check the voltage at the tip of the adapter to make sure it is putting out the proper voltage. I have seen plenty if failures with the HP laptops at the DC jack area, in most cases these jacks are connected to the motherboard by a cable and plug, which makes them easier to service than the soldered type. Here is your guide........
