Question about Computers & Internet
Okay guys, I got a tuff one. I have been trying to figure this problem out for over 5 months now without resorting to replacing the motherboard. I realize that this is probably the most likely answer to the problem, but I am hopeing that someone out there knows a quickfix to this.
I have an HP DV9600 Laptop. One day it stops charging the battery. Ironically, at the same time, the AC jack seemed to be coming loose beucase it would not stay seated in place and made moving around with the laptop near impossible. After going to the HP website and downloading the calibration tool, updating my bios, I decide it is probably a bad connection of some sort with the power port, so I replace the module but it still feels loose and it still does not stay in place. I come to the conclusion that the problem is the power cord. The tip of the plug is tweeked which is giving it a bad connection. I use a different power cord and it stays in place and I dont have any problems using the laptop anymore, HOWEVER, the battery still does not charge anymore. I replaced the battery from another laptop identical to my DV9000 and that battery does not charge in my laptop. So I took my battery and tried it in the other laptop and it works fine(although very low on power). So I come to the conclusion that there is a problem with the power relating to the battery port.
The obvious remedy to this problem is to replace the motherboard, however, like I said, I am hopeing that someone out there has an alternative such as checking to make sure the BIOS battery didnt die(I havent tried this yet, I will though if someone thinks it is worth taking the entire laptop apart to find out).
If your internal BIOS battery is flat it would not cause such malfunction.That would give us some info if you could try the other identical laptops charger on your laptop to find out exactly what is wrong.If your laptop wont take the charge even from the other charger then it means there is wrong inside your laptop.
You can try to dismantle the device carefully ,you may discover a faulty connection.Try to look for the connection close to the battery.

It sounds more like your charger is the problem.... Btw,the cmos battery stays charged for a couple of years. you will notice its dead when booting up your pc loads default settings on in your bios...i.e the time resets each time.
