Well, that sounds like everyone's favorite nightmare, the broken power plug. There are many online laptop repair services, and you should be able to locate an electronics repair in your city with a brief search as well. Depending on the age of the laptop, it may be as financially viable to upgrade/replace as to repair, and any competent tech will be able to help you remove your existing hard drive and transfer all your data to the new one. Best Luck!

SOURCE: no charge on laptop

I agree. Batteries have a limited life. Also--once you have a new battery installed, be sure you let it discharge all the way (until the computer tells you it has to be charged--about 3% remaining) at least once a month. This will ensure you get the maximum life out of a battery.

SOURCE: Port loose? Laptop won't keep charging

You might be able to replace the jack easily enough. I am not sure what model you have, but some Compaq laptops have modular jacks, meaning they can be replaced instead of having to be repaired or having to replace the entire motherboard. I would recommend you do this or have someone qualified to do this beucase if you leave it as-is then you might burn something out on your Motherboard.

SOURCE: My power cord is loose. It plugs in and charges,

Hello !

If I'm understanding you correctly, the wiggle is from the laptop. Sounds like a problem is about to happen. Your Presario has a loose power jack (connector inside the laptop). It is a part that can be replaced.

If you need further info, let us know.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Battery will not charge/ keep computer on. laptop

Sounds to me like the transformer circuit that enables the batery to charge. If you have bought your machine within the last 12 months it should still be covered by warranty so go back to the supplier. If not covered I wouod still try as it is not beyond reasonable expecations that the machine will operate perfectly in very way for more than 1 year.

Great story, but I feel your pain. There are so many times people think that just because they bought it new it works. Not true at all.

Batter wont stay charge


Most laptop batteries have a life expectancy of two years or 400 to 450 charge and discharge cycles. After this time, the battery may lose the ability to charge or to hold a charge for substantial periods of time. When this happens, it's likely the battery needs replacement. However, troubleshooting can narrow the problem and ensure you are not wasting money on a battery replacement.

Check Power Adapter Turn the laptop off. Remove any power cords or power sources. Separate the battery from the bottom of the laptop. Slide or press the locking mechanism to unlock the battery. Slide the battery out of the battery compartment. Plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet. Insert the opposite end of the adapter into the charging outlet on the side of a laptop. Power on the laptop. If the laptop does not turn on, the power adapter is not correctly working. If the power adapter is not working, the battery can not charge. Replace the power adapter. If the laptop powers on, the power adapter is properly working. Clean Battery Contacts Turn the computer off. Remove any power cords or sources. Take the battery out of the battery compartment. Dip a cotton swab in isopropyl alcohol. Rub the dampened swab on the battery compartment and battery contacts. Dust and buildup can prevent battery contacts from properly charging. Slide the battery back into the battery compartment. b> Charge and Test Battery Plug the power adapter into the laptop. Charge the battery for six hours. Remove the power adapter. Turn the laptop on. If the laptop turns on and stays on for at least 30 minutes, the battery is holding a charge. If the laptop doesn't turn on or the battery doesn't power the laptop for at least 30 minutes, the battery should be replaced.

How to tell if a105-s4074 satellite battery is bad


If thelaptop 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 andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to anunacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

T will indicate charging but it won't charge actor


If the laptop works only off the Power Cord and the batteryis not charging, then the battery is dead.

To check to make sure the Power Cord is working remove the battery and let thelatop run for 10 minutes or so.

To check to see if the battery has any charge left in it put the battery in andremove the power cord. If it won't boot or shuts down then the battery is deadand needs to be replaced if the power cord is ok.

I have a 1 month old samsung n148 netbook. I rarely use it with the battery, mostly connected to the cord. However, after some time, i charge the battery. when i try to open it with just the battery power,...


Your Netbook is still under warranty and I will not advice that you experriment or tamper to loose the free warranty claim on the PC. So what could be done is to discharge fully the battery and then try to charge fully , if this wont charge then the battery is a suspect and you must claim for replacement as it could have developed back EMF and so will not charge.

Netbook charging indicator light won't light and battery won't charge. AC adapter works on other computers


Hello,
If the battery won't charge and the laptop won't turn on but the ac adapter works with other laptops, then the problem is the port where you plugin the ac adapter. Some of the laptops has it built in to the motherboard. So you might need to have it repaired by a technician. Or if the laptop is still in warranty, you might need to send it to the manufacturer to have it repaired or replaced. But if the laptop works without the battery, or it will turn on but the battery indicator is not lighting up, you're facing one of these problems.
1. The battery itself is dead. 2. the battery bay is loose 3. the battery itself is loose
Hope this helps...

Check the pronges inside the battery compartment. They will be like copper plated if they are not loose or broken then it may be a motherboard issue.
