Which port to use for internet access?

Have a hand-me-down M2000.  Have no manual.  Have red cord and blue cord plus black power cord.  To connect to internet, which port do I use .  Assume red cord is the one to use.  Assume blue one is to hookup to printer.  Just no sure.  Thanks, Bruce

Re: Which port to use for internet access?

You can download the manual from here

Usually the Blue cable is a USB cable goes to the printer while the yellow cable is the network going to Internet.
See the picture and connect the  printer  in position 6 and Internet in position 4.a38b58b.jpg

Let me know if you need more help.

Compaq M2000 turns on using charged laptop battery but doesn't charge or turn on when using power adaptor, with or without the laptop battery

1) The AC adapter should ALWAYS be plugged into the laptop FIRST, then plugged into AC power. If not, this could create a voltage spike.

2) Let's look at the DC Power Jack, for the Compaq Presario M2000 series of Notebook PC's,

The DC Power Jack is mounted to a removable circuit board.
Enlarging the view of the jack, shows us there is an Inductor.

The small 'can' standing up on the power board. This chipset could have gone south. (Bad)

How to know? Replace it, or dig out your dual trace oscilloscope. See if the Inductor works.

Could also just be cracked solder joints, of the DC Power Jack, TO that small circuit board. Solution would be to resolder it/them.

[ I WOULD however, search for a BETTER price, than listed in the link above, IF available ]

DC Power Jack is in good shape, soldered tight to the motherboard, and ruled out as the problem?
(Since you know the AC adapter is good)

Then the problem would be the Inductor on that power board, or power correcting chipset.

What one is it? Dunno.
DO KNOW is has J leads on the bottom.
CAN give examples, and perhaps you can identify using them.

Drop down to the line that begins with - Compaq Presario 1100.

Scroll over, click on M2000. (In blue)

The adapter light is on when first plugged in but then when I connect the adapter to my laptop the light goes off and it doesnt supply any power

I suggest check out the AC adapter first.

1) When plugged into power, and plugged into the laptop, gently wiggle the cable from the AC adapter TO laptop.

Any change?

Do the same on the power cord TO AC adapter.

Go on.

2) The port on the laptop that the plug from the AC adapter plugs into, is the DC Power Jack.
If we are discussing an Acer Aspire 5738Z Notebook PC, the DC Power Jack resembles this one, (Not installed),

(When I note the DC Power Jack, it is this link I will be referring to )

As you can see there is a Center Pin. All power removed from the laptop, use a small wooden, or plastic object, and see if this pin moves around.

ANY perceptible movement means a bad DC Power Jack.

DC Power Jack checks out it's back to the AC adapter.
Wanted to perform the easy diagnosis first.

This will require a multimeter. An economical, yet fine for this test multimeter, can be purchased for as little as $8 to $12.

Available in a multitude of stores. An auto parts store is but one example.
Analog or digital is fine.

(Analog is fine. Some of us still like 'em)

DC Voltage is what you are going to check.

Black probe lead (Negative) goes in the Common port on the multimeter. (COM)
Red probe lead (Positive) goes in the Voltage port on the multimeter. (V)

If the multimeter just has symbols around the Function Knob, set it to the dotted line over a solid line, symbol.

The plug on the end of the AC adapter, that plugs into the laptop, has a center hole, and a cylindrical metal shield surrounding it.

The Center Hole of the plug is where the red Positive lead, of the multimeter goes.

The outside cylindrical metal shell is where the black Negative lead of the multimeter goes.

Hold the AC adapter plug in one hand, and at the same time hold the red Positive multimeter probe in the center hole.

With the other hand touch the black Negative lead of the multimeter, to the cylindrical metal shield on the outside of the plug.

You should read 19 Volts (DC), or VERY close to it,

I believe the AC adapter is the problem. Post back in a Comment as to your findings.

Hello heres my problem the power cord tip gets so hot and burns even ive replaced the battery ive replaced the cord and the tip and its stil happening help please

Seems that your notebook's power socket, where you plug the power cord, is damaged & is causing a loose connection. The loose connection causes the power socket as well as the power cord's tip to overheat & burn.

A fine blue line has appeared down the side of the screen any ideas

To determine if you have a provlem with the LCD screen or the video card, connect an external monitor to the laptop's video port and power up the monitor first and then the laptop. The video will divert automatically to the external monitor. If you get a normal Windows image on the monitor then the fault is with the LCD screen, if not then the fault is a faulty video card.
Get back to me with the results of this test.

Compaq presario m2000 - secondhand

This does appear to have wireless capabilities. there should be a small button to the left of the screen latch which you press to turn wireless on/off when on there should be a blue light that comes on. if you wish to use wireless to access your broadband you will need to have a wireless router / ADSL modem (depending on your supplier) you then configure the settings on the router to access the internet, then you configure the laptop to connect to the router. (there shoudl be instructions on how to do this with the router I hope this helps
