Question about HP Compaq Presario V2000 Notebook
The laptop won't turn on. I took it to best buy and he tried a different power cord and sill nothing. Is there anything i can do to fix it?
When you plug in the AC adapter do you see any indication that the battery is charging? Usually there's an LED that illuminates to indicate this.
If you do not see any indication of the battery charging, then gently wiggle the plug that inserts into the laptop. These laptops have a common problem where the power connector comes loose from the system board. If this has happened additional damage can occur because a failing connection can generate lots of heat and damage the system board further.
There are some companies that will repair this problem for you, or if you're interested you can try it yourself.
In any event, let me know what you find. If it looks like this is the problem and you're interested in fixing it yourself I can give you some more information to help.
If the power connector is not the problem and you get no response whatsoever then I would guess the power switch might be broken (unlikely) or there's been a hardware failure of some other kind on the system board.

No power or computer does not turn on.
If you have a power strip (surge protector) or switch used to turn everything on at once.
