No Power, Battery charge light stay on

I have a Compaq NC6220 laptop. It has Windows XP Professional installed. The laptop was working fine. I left it for about an hour and when I came back it had powered down. A light was still on so I thought it might have been in sleep mode but still no power. For some odd reason, the battery charge light stays lit when the battery is inserted. I have allready tried removing the battery and unpluging the power source but the same results. No power with either source and the battery charge light stays on.
I been repairing computers for a while but have not seen this issue before, your thoughts Roger warren

Re: No Power, Battery charge light stay on

Hi Roger

First of all Technically a battery of any laptops usually loses performance after 500 (Full charge-recharge) cycles of usage, However it will work by holding shorter charge duration compare the brand new one. If battery is not being recognized you might have have older version of BIOS as Compaq has released newer version of BIOS for NC 6220. You can download the BIOS update from official website of hp-compaq. BIOS update should be done very carefully. As installation will prompt you the instruction. for your convenience I am adding the direct link for the BIOS update that you can download and install.
Please follow up your post for further conclusion
Good Luck

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 only starts up when the ac adaptor is plugged in. I think the battery needs to be replaced. does this sound right ?

To check if the battery is charging go to Control Panel - Power Options - Power meter. If it shows unknown or zero charge then the battery is faulty or worn out. Rechargeable batteries have only a finite amount of charge and discharge cycles and over a couple of years use they lose their full amp hour charge capacity.

Hello, my hp compaq nc6220 gives insert smart card into reader

Pl switch the machine off and put 2-3 pounds of pressure with your palm on the keyboard closer to the spacebar.. this will fix it..
it is caused by the weakening of the adhesive of the wires below the keyboard.
Long term option - get the keyboard opened by the an professional and cleaned properly..and fixed back neatly...
