Welcome to the world of the DV9000s....if it isn;t a motherboard issue, it is a power issue. Do not trust either the power cord or the battery or the computer for that matter because I have seen over and over that all three components are not playing well with each other in these systems and the DV6000s. It could be very possible that the battery has bad or damaged cells in it and will probably run fine for a while and then crash suddenly. That is because it is using the good cells and then a bad cell kicks in and....nothing.
Take the battery out and just hook up the charger, if it runs fine for a couple of hours just on the charger then I suspect there is no problem there, chargers tend to overheat, then their voltage reulators will start to fail and then the battery is discharged or over charged and then everything fails.

How do i fix my lenovo tablet if it wont take charge?


There are two troubleshooting tips for this:
  • try changing the battery. Sometimes the battery can be bad, not keeping a charge long enough to allow the computer to power on.
  • Try a new power cord. First thing is, there can be a short that intermittently causes the computer to show as charging, but it stops actually charging after letting go of the plug. Second, the cord is going bad and not allowing a full charge to go through.

Try a hard reset. Remove the battery and power cord, then push and hold the power button for about 30-45 sec then plug just the power cord in, Also the battery could be shot but that is hard to tell how to check over chat. Good Luck

My acer aspire 8930 suddenly stopped charging the battery. We put it in my husband's identical laptop and it charged fine. I researched on net and using info found, turned laptop on with battery r


Just because all systems look go. Does not mean the power cord is working correctly and the charging portion of the power supply unit may not be working you will still be able to power the computer on but not charge replace that unit and you should be back up and charging again. You know it is not a battery problem it is the cord and component due to your test. Makes sense to me also one other factor to consider, the battery may be charging but will not hold the charge be sure to fully charge the battery and see how long it takes to drain down. Just a suggestion. John

Hello, I am having problems with my Compaq nx6110 laptop not charging. It is not the battery, as I replaced it at the end of December. The problem seems to be that the charge isn't reaching the battery,...


If you remove the battery, does the AC Adapter power the computer? Does the laptop have a barrel type power connector? I have replaced several power connectors for broken center pin. Does wiggling the power connector affect the charging light?

I had the same problem on my CQ60. HP battery test showed one or more cells not working. After spending about 2 hours talking to some guy in India,or somewhere, he came to the conclusion that my battery was bad. HP sent me a new battery, which fixed the problem.
