Re: Compaq Presario M2000 PC

Hi Jonee

There is no reset button on this model so I would suggest, removing the ac adapter and battery form the computer and hold down the power button for at least a min. From there reattach the AC ONLY, then try to power the unit on. If it turns on great wait for it to get to windows then slip the battery in. If it doesn't even attempt to power on, lets look at the Ac power adapter. Does it have a light on it? Is it warm to the touch? It very could be that the ac adapter may have died and the system's battery doesn't have enough power left to run the computer. If this scenario happens you may want ot call HP or take the computer to a local tech where they can test the adapter for you and determine if it is working. The last thing to check is the power pin in the notebook. IS it very loose when plugging in the adapter? If it is, that would indicate a physical problem that won't be resolved unless a tech looks at it. I hope this help.

Compaq Presario M2000 stopped turning on

If there is no power going to the laptop then disconnect battery and hold the reset button in for 30 seconds, then try it again. Sometimes the memory can be damaged which can cause the laptop not to boot..?

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.

Battery won't charge

This is true, you will not be able to charge the battery without the correct charger. For mostly all laptops, when the charger is not maintaining a charge, it is time for a new one. However, it does not have to be the manufacturer's adapter, but I recommend purchasing the battery made for the Compaq Presario M2000 Notebook. has decent deals on these adapters.

I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
Thank You, Raph30

Computer will not turn on

This could indicate a bad battery, or bad memory chip. Try starting without the battery. If this doesn't work, then try takeing one or the other memory chips out. If the problem persists, then it may lie within the power management system on the motherboard.

M2000 laptop


this means your computer is candidate for PRODUCT SAFETY CAPTURE. US gov requires all manufacturers to capture a product for safety reasons. call compaq and tell them that warranty is out, but computer has safety issues. its too hot to touch or had smoke come out of it. they should be able to give you a new computer. hehehehe! :)
