Question about Compaq Presario X1000 Notebook

1 Answer

Compaq Presario 1000x charges when off, but not when on

I plug the laptop in while it is off and the charging light comes on. When the computer is turned on, it stops charging and no amount of wiggling will get it to charge.
As soon as the computer shuts down, the charge light goes on and it charges again.

Any idea how to fix this?

Try a different battery cause your existing one may have bad cells and could be messing with things. Try one that you know that works. If that fails, try another AC Adapter and see if that changes things.

If neither one fixes the problem. It could be a problem at that point with the dc jack. The solder points probably need to be resoldered cause the connection isn't good.

Could also be a problem with the motherboard with the voltage regulator but try my other suggestions first to rule things out.

Battery problem with HP Compaq Presario V2000 laptop


When batteries fail, they usually lose the cells inside them, which means that the cell is no longer able to function as a holding cell for power and therefore cannot do its job anymore, when a battery fails to hold and refuses charging it is bad and needs to be recycled. The flashing is telling you to purchase a new battery. The larger the number of cells in the battery, the longer and better it will perfrom,,RE: 6 cell, 9 cell, 12 cell.

Just purchased a compaq presario secondhand--is the battery supposed to charge automatically when you plug the computer in? Mine is not. Works perfectly with the power cord though.


All the laptops I have seen since the 1980's charge the battery, if it is installed, while the laptop is running. They charge at a slower rate if you are using the computer, and faster if you just plug it in and leave the computer powered off.
Most have a 'charging' led [green or amber] indicating that the battery is being charged when you plug the laptop in and leave it turned off. If you don't see any indication, check that the battery is connected firmly and that the connectors are not damaged. If possible, try the battery in another machine or a different battery in your machine.

Laptop won't turn on, battery won't charge


I had a similar issue with the Armada M700 from Compaq. Never did figure it out exactly. But I do know this. When you unplug the power chord and take out the battery and plug the power chord back in while the battery is out usually for some reason it turned on allowing me to replace the battery which would then begin charging. Your problem interests me because I can really relate!

Compaq Presario 1200 won't charge battery


dear N9YK

you can follow this

If you have a loose connection where you plug in the power on your laptop, or it works intermittently, you could have a bad dc jack. Symptoms
  • Move the power plug and the laptop loses connection
  • Broken or cracked dc jack
  • Laptop won't charge but worked on battery
  • Power LED and battery LED flicker when the adapter tip is moved
  • Battery won't charge
  • Sparks come out the back of the laptop
Why does this happen?
  • Flaw in manufacturer designs
  • Use of universal or non-original ac adapter
  • Lots of plugging and unplugging of the ac adapter
  • Tripping on or pulling the ac adapter cord
or you can check your dc amper in your adaptor

oke



thx
