    Before I shut down my V2000 I had a critical battery alert. My AC works just fine. My battery may be dead but should have enough juice to restart. Powere management page flashed battery then AC over and over as if it was goin in and out from the ac power supply. Now the it will not power up at all.

    I have a Presario V2000.

    After not using for about 1 week I turned it on so I could clean it from viruses.

    Got the battery alert and then it shutdown meanwhile I was pluging the cord in (Targus AC cord with

    blue light).

    When I connected the AC to the power (not connected yet to the laptop) it "turned on" and still today

    shows a blue light. But once I plug it to the laptop the blue light disappears after 3-5 seconds!

    Not at the beginning nor the end of this process the laptop will turn on if I press the power button

    for 'x' seconds. If I plug the cord, the computer doesn't show any "power light" and then the blue

    light from the Targus AC fades off.

    I tried removing the battery and unpluging everything. So again I got the blue light with no problems

    (before connecting it to the laptop) and then connected to the laptop without the battery. Same thing

    happened. The blue light fades off and no power is present.

    I tried to put back the battery, unplugh everything, but same result.

    The V2000 seems to be dead and can't find why the AC adaptor dies when I connect it to the laptop.

    I was thinking it could be an AC power problem, but when I plug it to the power it lights on.

    Any helpful ideas?

    Many thanks!

Take the battery out. Unplug the charger from the computer. Press the On button for 30 seconds. Then plug the charger in. If it works, then put the battery back in and you're in business again.

The controller gets locked up sometimes, you need to clear it out and let it reboot like that....

The small rubber button on my compaq presario V2000 isn't working. When I open the screen of my laptop the light on the screen will switch on for just a moment, and then switch off. How can I fix it so the...


Hello.

The most common reasons are the battery, power jack and power adapter/cord.

Power off and remove the battery. If the laptop powers on with just the adapter connected, your battery is faulty.

If you move/wiggle the power adapter at the point where it connects to the laptop, and the power goes off and on, the power jack is the problem.

The power jack is inside the laptop and either needs soldering or replacement.

If no change, the power adapter is probably faulty and needs replacement.

Hope this helps.

My Compaq Pres V2000 laptop does not get on with power on switch


Take out the battery and only hook up the AC Adapter to see if the laptop turns on. If it does then you know the battery is shorting out the laptop and either has very little power to turn on the laptop or is shorting out the laptop cause its bad.

If you don't get the laptop to turn on, make sure your using a well known working wall outlet to plug the laptop to and only use the AC Adapter. If you AC Adapter is hooked up and the Green Led turns on then you know the adapter is good.

After those two steps, you can also try taking out the dvd drive and the hard drive. Then try turning on the laptop and if the laptop still doesn't turn on then the motherboard is bad in the laptop.

Hp compaq nx7400 - battery died and power cord will not turn comp


Some laptops will not power up with a completely discharged or faulty battery. Remove the battery from the laptop, plug in the power cord and try to boot the system. If the system boots, your battery needs to be replaced. Replace your battery as soon as you can, it's not a good idea to run the laptop for extended periods with an open battery bay.

start wit ha power reset, remove the battery, remove the ac adapter, hold the power button for 1 minute and then repalce the battery and ac adapter, if theres no go try it with just the ac adapter, sometimes the batteries short out. if all else fails its probably the mmobo and i suggest calling compaq for warranty support

After you have verified that the solder is good around the DC Jack >>>>

Check MOSFET (Anachip 4407 or Fairchild 4435) near DC JACK
[replace the pair PNP/NPN]

Check MAXIM IC (MAX1999)

Compaq Presario v2000 having problems powering on


hi!

i'd say first try a known working ac adapter and if that Working AC adapter works and the system detects the battery well, then it could be the ac. If not then try to borrow a working battery to get your final conclusion. if the working battery still doesnt work properly, then it could be the system motherboard. If battery and ac adapter (working) are not available, then check the BIOS and see if it really doesnt detect the battery. try flashing the BIOS and still if that fails, then replace the battery.

hope this helps!

Regards,

Karlox

Compaq presario does not turn on


Your battery is dead. You need to get a new power adapter. The battery isn't charging. The AC adapter went south. If the laptop is under warranty, you can get one from Compaq. Or, what I would do is shop on the internet and order one. Whats the numbers on the ac adapter? I'll help you find one.
