It has text and pictures. If that does not work, try plugging in the laptop and removing the battery. Sometimes a bad battery will cause start problems. If you continue to have problems, post what you have done and what has not worked.

Sometimes the Adapter Charges other times Doesnot, and now finally out, cant charge!


Possible cuase:
1 AC adapter failure
2 Power jack failure

First replace it with another working charger, see if the problem gone. If not, there may be strong possibility that the power jack was broken.

Here below are some common symptoms of a bad charger.
-The laptop only runs when you keep the power cord in a certain direction.
- The laptop only runs on battery power.
- The laptop will not charge the battery.
- The laptop switches from AC power to battery power intermittently.
- The unit suddenly shuts off
- Sparks come out of the back of the laptop.

When the power charger is on my compaq nx6310, it run very slow, but when I use it without the power charger, only battery, it runs well... it works good!!! My S.O. is Windows XP professional sp3 I use...


You need to make sure your power adapter is providing enough power to both run the laptop & charge the battery. A very good way to do this is to compare your laptop voltage & ampere requirements (written on a sticker on the bottom of the laptop) with the voltage & ampere ratings of the power adapter. Voltages should be the same, or the power adapter's voltage about up to 0.5 volts more than the laptop's voltage rating. Amperage of the power adapter should be at least equal to or greater than the laptop's rating. It should never be less than the laptop's rating, or else the power adapter will be providing insufficient amperes to charge the battery. Of course, the power adapter's nominal amperage might be ok, but it degraded on usage. You can verify this by testing using a good or new power adapter.

HP Laptop will not power on even pluuged into a/c outlet


Does it run hot, to the touch I mean? Google a free program called Speccy. Install and run it; look at the internal temperature and see if it slowly rises until the laptop shuts off.

My battery charges but the laptop wont run on the battery


If your power adapter appears to be charging your laptop battery, but the laptop will not run on the battery or only runs for a short time this usually indicates that the battery will not hold a charge and needs to be replaced. Although it should run fine with the power adapter connected.

If the laptop runs on batter but cannot run on the AC adapter, you have a broken DC Jack. If you laptop cannot power up with the battery or flash low battery indicator, you laptop is dead.

Laptop crashes shortly after boot, power light rapidly blinks red.


Its late, so just to make sure I'm not brain-dead basically your laptop runs fine as long as its powered by the AC adaptor but dies fairly quickly while running via battery. This is very typical of a battery that will no longer hold a charge, not normally a user repairable item. It could also be that the charging electronics (in the laptop) isn't charging the battery, again not a typical user repair job. About your only option short of taking it to the repair shop is buying or borrowing a battery as a test.
