I have a compaq presario 700 laptop that is no longer charging.

I am not sure if it is the power cord or the battery. The cord may be a little bent but it still fits. However the computer will not charge.

The notebook battery may have a defect if it will not power on the notebook and if it will not hold a charge. The battery indicator light on the notebook either does not light or always blinks orange. The notebook operates correctly when connected to the AC adapter.
A battery that will not charge may be the result of an AC adapter failure, a system board failure, or a battery failure. Perform the steps below to diagnose the failure.
Troubleshoot the power supply
To verify that the AC power supply is functioning properly, follow the steps below.

1.
Plug the AC adapter directly into a functioning wall outlet, and plug connector into the computer. Do not plug into a power strip, surge protector or secondary power source.
2.
Verify the following operation and take the appropriate action:
*
That all power cord connections are secure.
If the AC adapter connection to the notebook is loose, the connector may be damaged and require repair. Contact HP service and support for further assistance.
*
That the power button or power LED is lit when the computer is on.
*
That an LED on the AC power supply adapter is lit when plugged into an AC wall outlet (not available on all AC power supply adapters).
*
That the AC power supply adapter is the correct type.
Different notebook models require different AC power supply adapters. You will need to know the Product Number of your notebook to determine the Part Number of the replacement part. Click Start > HP Help & Support to view the product name, product number, and serial number that you'll need to have to speak with HP Customer Service.
View the See Also section for information about locating HP Help & Support in your operating system.

Troubleshoot the System Board
If you've verified that the AC power functions properly, troubleshoot the PC's system board by following the steps below.

1.
Remove the battery, and keep the notebook connected to AC power.
2.
Press and release the Power button to start the computer.
*
If the notebook PC powers on , then the AC adapter and system board are functioning properly. Go to Troubleshoot the battery .
*
If the Power LED is off , then the AC power adapter needs to be replaced. Contact HP Service and Support for further assistance.
*
If the power LED is on , but the notebook PC does not power on, then the notebook PC needs to be repaired. Contact HP Service and Support for further assistance.
3.
Shut down Windows by selecting Shut Down from the Start Menu.

Troubleshoot the battery
If you have verified the AC power supply and system board are functioning correctly, troubleshoot the battery by following the steps below.

1.
Insert the battery into the battery compartment on the bottom of the notebook PC.
2.
Connect the AC power supply and allow the battery to charge for 15 to 30 minutes.
NOTE: The Battery Charging light should be on while the battery is charging. If it is not on, check the AC power adapter connection to the notebook PC.
3.
Unplug the AC power adapter cord from the notebook PC.
4.
Press and release the Power button to start the computer using only the battery as the power source.
*
If the PC does not power on, then the battery needs to be replaced. Contact HP service and support for further assistance.
*
If the notebook PC does power on, the battery is functioning properly.
NOTE: If you have purchased a second battery for your notebook PC or you have access to an identical battery, you can also check the battery by inserting the second battery into the PC and performing the Troubleshoot the battery steps again.

Compaq presario c700 WAS WORKING I SHUT IT DOWN AND NOW IT WILL NOT POWER ON at all


Is the power cord/brick *firmly* plugged in in all places? Sometimes, the cord from the brick comes out slightly, breaking the power connection. If your battery is old/no longer holding a charge, the machine wouldn't start again. Also, if above is ok, remove the battery, plug the power back in. Does machine start now? If it does - replace battery.

Presario 700 power problems


No the battery does not have to be in for the notebook to work. No the battery does not have to be charge for the notebook to work. It sounds like you have a AC jack issue. Check to see if the AC is loose. You need to get this repaired by a local notebook repair shop.

I hope this helps. Please rate.

Compaq Presario needed a new battery was installed labtop will not charge up!


When you install a new battery and remove a battery always make sure the laptop is completely shut off and have the power cord removed so that you avoid any possible power surge.

Batteries generally don't last much longer than a year and I have found removing the power cord or battery when it is off to be a good practice.

Before you charge a battery make sure it is run most all the way down. Recharging a battery when it is not run down can give it a memory and you may only be able to charge it up to the point you started charging it.

Anyway, if the computer won't charge a new battery then you could have a bad motherboard. To be sure try another battery.
