Compaq Business Notebook NX9010 runs on battery only???

I have a NX9010 Compaq Business Notebook and just recently after a little spill from a soda will not run from AC adapter. I shut off immediatley, unplugged and allowed it to dry. Then dismantled it and to my suprise was very clean still. Powered up and shut off in 20 seconds. Battery was bad and replaced and it works fine but will only run on battery. So here it is: (1) runs on battery. (2) Charges normally. (3) Will Not run on AC power. (4) It used to run both ways before. Any help greatly appreciated.

Re: Compaq Business Notebook NX9010 runs on battery...

If it charges the battery but won't run on AC (without a battery) then something on the motherboard is probably faulty.

This is a typical symptom of motherboard failure. Your laptop's motherboard will need to either be serviced or replaced.

June 22, 2009 Dear Person, I have an HP-Compaq laptop computer, business model nx9010, s/n CNF3520KL4, with a failed hard drive. I am unable to remove the drive. I have removed the three (3) visible screws...
1. Unplug the AC adapter, if present, and then remove the battery.
2. On the bottom of the notebook, remove the hard disk drive rubber screw plugs and
M2.5×6.0mm screws. (The number of plugs and screws varies by model).
3. Carefully pull the hard disk drive out of the notebook.
4. Remove the four M3.0×4.0mm screws from the hard disk drive and hard disk drive tray,
and then lift the drive out of the tray.
5. Remove the connector bar from the hard disk drive.
The manual does have little picture to help you. The link above is to download the service manual.

Try both, as 9010 is built in two different versions.
