Question about HP Compaq Presario CQ60-249US Notebook

Persario/HP charger scam

Okay, let's get to it! Hp puts a chip in the chargers they use for Presarios. If you use a NON-HP charger, the laptop always thinks it is in battery mode!! Is there a work around for this? (i.e. can you fool the presario into thinking it's attached to HP, or disable the 'battery mode' recognition?)

Remove the battery before you plug in the charger/adapter and see what it will do. It can't recognize a battery mode if there is no battery. Maybe the charger you are using is not appropriate: different voltage, wrong polarity, the tip is not in contact with the plug terminals, or the circuit is not closed to allow the passage of current.
Rocketfish, Targus , and a few others, manufacture universal chargers that work with may laptop makes and models.

    The cahrger/adapter works fine without battery? The problem is not in the adapter. Could it be that the battery, although brand new, is defective?

SOURCE: Disabling the touchpad on HP 530

Go into your windows device manager.
Search for your touchpad (should call synaptics input device)
give it a right click and disable the device.

I rather think that your mainboard is having problems, tried a bios upgrade and the latest drivers yet?

SOURCE: laptop screen goes black ,but when charger is plugged in it works

This particular model of Hp was shipped with a bad inverter. You can check out the link below to another forum with users with the same problem.

In order to fix the problem you just need to discount the old inverter and it should work according to what I have read. The link to the manual is listed below.

SOURCE: hp power supply failiure

Hi,

Ive worked on a friends G7000 series laptop, since it had the same symptoms you have with yours.

I tested it on my own(identical) working charger/PSU and still no charging.
After taking the motherboard out, i traced the fault to a short circuit FET (field effect transistor) with the PCB reference of PQ1, located right next to the connector for the DC power jack loom.(short from gate to source) The FET is made by Fairchild Semiconductors and its part number is FDS6675BZ. Being in the UK, i ordered the part from www.farnell.co.uk at a cost of 56pence. After changing this FET(which is there to control power) the laptop is working.

If you are not good with very intricate surface mount soldering, then i suggest you buy the component, take the motherboard out of the laptop(not too hard) and take them both down your local TV repair shop for them to check and change it(tell them the board reference PQ1).. shouldnt cost more than £20 or so been as they dont have to fault find.

SOURCE: My Hp g60 laptop battery is not working

If the 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.

It isn't likely that your laptop charger is the problem and it is more likely that is is just your touch pad. So you shouldn't buy a new laptop charger unless you absolutely think you have to. If you do, make sure that you buy it from HP instead of a third party for a lower chance of problems. It's more likely that it's just your touch pad that is faulty.

My hp dv 8000 Pavillion laptop will turn on and then it immediatly shuts down after 5 seconds or so


Power drain would be a better solution in this case. 1.first shut down the comp 2.unplug the charger 3. remove the battery and after press and hold the power button for 60 seconds without any charger and the battery.After the 60 seconds replug the battery and the charger and turn the computer .
and if this doesn't help
then try to take out the ram or memory chip from the computer and place it back.

Blinking power button, no responce from the laptop


sound like you charger is broken, i think tose use the same charger as the compaq presarios, evo's if you can get a used 65 wat that problem would have been fixed, but those are still pretty new, i think you can get a new charger for free if it's still under warranty

hp presario cq60 connects to network but not to internet hp presario cq60 connects to networkb but not to internet. I replaced the wifi card. I've tried to connect to hot spots and to wireless routers. I can connect to them, but no internet. Says Local Only. I have tried the following... 1- Click Start, then type ncpa.cpl and press Enter 2- The "Network Connections" window will show up 3- Right click Wireless Network Connection and select Properties 4- Click the Networking tab. Click Internet Protocol Version 4 TCP/Ipv4 and then click Properties 5- Select "Obtain an IP address automatically" 6- Make sure also that "Obtain DNS server address automatically" is selected 7- Click OK Then please follow the steps below also: 1- Open Internet Explorer (even if you use another browser) 2- On Internet Explorer click Tools, then click "Internet Options" 3- Click Connections 4- Click "Lan Settings" 5- Make sure "Automatically detect settings" is SELECTED 6- Make sure "Use automatic configuration script" is UNCHECKED 7- Make sure "Use a proxy server......" is UNCHECKED 8- Click OK 9- Click Apply then Click OK I've also tried...1- Click Start, then Control Panel 2- Now click "Network and Internet" 3- Then click "Network and Sharing Center" 4- And then click "Manage network connections" on the left 5- Right click "Wireless Network Connection" and select Properties 6- Click the Networking tab.

I've also tried... Please click on Start->All Programs->Accessories, then right-click on Command Prompt and click on Run as administrator. Then type: netsh winsock reset , and press Enter. ipconfig /release , and press Enter. ipconfig /flushdns , and press Enter. netsh int ip reset netshlog.txt , and press Enter. Then restart the computer and check. Nothing has worked. Still allows me to connect to a wireless modem or a hot spot but not to the internet. It displays "Access: Local Only". I've tried other laptops and they allow internet access using the same wireless modem or hot spot. Yet, as I stated before, When I was in the hospital, I could connect to their wi-fi and get internet access. I also can connect this laptop to an ethernet cable and connect to the internet.
