Simply put there can one of several causes. Test the power output at the tip of the charger, weak or failing chargers may not deliver the specified voltage to properly power or charge the laptop sufficiently to continue operation. The DC jack may be worn out and not accepting the proper voltage from the charger. A very hot charger may be an indication of power distribution issues. The biggie may be that the motherboard has failed and is not accepting the signal to keep things running and is ordering a complete unit shutdown before the boot process begins.

HP Compaq nc6220: I need a diagram of motherboard to fix cmos wire connector. The power module on the mobo came loose while plugging in the cmos wire.

Top View/Bottom View,

Hover your mouse cursor in the middle of the two views. Use the Zoom feature to look at the connector, and the direction it is facing.
-> Only faces one way <- This lines up the polarity of the wires.

Using which one goes where on the motherboard's connector, suggest using short splices of wire, soldered to the existing wire 'nubs' coming out of the motherboard.
(Or existing solder joints, that went to the motherboard connector for the RTC Battery)

(Use a low wattage soldering iron, and a No.2 chisel tip. Well tinned, and have a damp sponge nearby to occasionally clean it.. Do Not suggest using as soldering gun.

Area around wire 'nubs, and wire nubs, needs to be cleaned properly. If not the tinning you need to do to the tip of those wires, won't take.
(Tinning - Thin coat of solder)

Clean with an old toothbrush, and Isopropyl Alcohol.
(Rubbing alcohol. 91 percent is best, but 70 percent will do)

Isopropyl alcohol is EXTREMELY FLAMMABLE!
Use in a Well ventilated area with NO sparks or flames present.

Tips of those wires needs to be tinned, and the both ends of the short jumper wires you're going to use. Heat shrink tubing needs to be used on the wires, before soldering any wires together.

The combination RTC battery harness plug, and the motherboard connector will have to be checked out for fit, when the case is put back together.
That is to say; Look to make sure there is space for this moved combo. Otherwise the wires will become pinched, when the case is put back together. laptop won't go back together, and wires may be damaged.

Motherboard connector for the RTC battery harness cable.

The reference already implies to those who know, that the RTC battery harness has a plug on the end, and the above is what it plugs into.

(RTC Battery = Real Time Clock Battery. The reference used in place of CMOS battery now )

When I hit the power on button on my compaq nc6220 the yellow battery light flashes and nothing happens

Please try removing the battery, and then connect the power adaptor and try switching the laptop on see it if works if it works then the battery needs to be replaced. I would also recommend if you can check your power adaptor / swap your power adaptor with a know good adaptor (if you have one). The remaining steps will depend on the outcome of the steps above.

My compaq nc6220 will not boot up

I would agree another thought is to take the battery out and see if the system will boot or even show a light. If not it could be the charger that is the problem. Hope this helps.

Nc won't charge

Maybe the battery is dead. The battery only has a useful life, then it has to be replaced. If you power cord works and allows you to be on the computer, but the battery does not charge, replace the battery.

There are two slots for RAM in the NC6220. The RAM is DDR2 and will take 1GB per slot. So first ensure you have the right RAM. Then turn the laptop over and:
  1. unplug and remove Battery from laptop
  2. Open memory compartment on bottom using Philips screw driver
  3. inset memory in open slot, if no open slot remove current memory by pinching metal clasp on side of memory
  4. Close compartment and power up you are off and running.
