Your motherboard does not need replacing provided the problem is the power socket on the motherboard.
If the power adapter is OK then connect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard.
This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. I suggest you get a quote first.

My hp laptop don't turn on even the charger is


When you connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED light up? If not then - The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's power socket could be faulty. Check power adapter's DC plug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced. If the adapter is OK then connect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard. This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

Advent modena m200 will not turn on or charge.


Connect the AC power adapter to the laptop and confirm that the AC power indicator is on (I wish you stated the brand of laptop). If the AC power indicator is not on, try and get a working AC power adapter for your laptop and connect it to your laptop.

With the AC power adapter connected, you can power on your laptop. If the laptop powers on from the OS you can see if the Battery is charging or not.
If the laptop does not power with the AC power adapter connected, then the power port of the laptop is bad.

However, if all these are okay and the battery still does not charge, the battery is faulty and will need to be replaced.

My laptop doesn't charge it's battery, but indicates battery charging when the system is running. Model: CQ 61, motherboard by foxconn


Chances are the batter is bad. Did you just purchase the notebook? You may want to try swapping the battery in your laptop with the other laptop you tested the adapter on. If you do need a new battery, here is a link

When i turn the laptop on it just beeps several times and the battery and the circle with a Z looking thing light up.


Ok, the tilted-Z-in-a-circle represents the power indicator. As far as I know the power indicator is orange while the battery level is below 60% and charging, and green above 60% and charging. When the batery level is above 90% the power indicator starts blinking (green blinking) to let you know that the battery is almost fully charged.

Please try to turn on the laptop without the battery attached and secondly without the power cable attached. Does the laptop still beeps?

If yes, this could indicate a failure of the battery / charger / mainboard charging bridge.

First, if the battery starts to fail, you should be able to start the laptop by removing the battery. If this helps then you have to buy a replacement one.

Second, check the power the charger outputs (by using a voltmeter) and compare the voltmeter reading with the power adapter specifications (read the sticker on the power adapter). If there is a difference of more than 1-2 volts then it means that the power adapter is toasted. Buy a new one and everything should be ok.

Third - if the mainboard charging bridge has problems - this can only be investigated by a laptop service specialist. It can be fixed either by replacing a passive part or by replacing the motherboard.

The beeps you hear can be a code by which the laptop tries to tell what the problem is.Please describe the beeps and the timeout between them(e.g.: beeeeeep-------------bep---bep---bep -- this is the signal that the VGA adapter is no longer recognized).

Good luck with your tabled PC !

Laptop not working on battery, i have changed the battery


There are several simple indicator to determine the source of the problem. There are 4 major components involved, the laptop circuitry, contact terminal, AC adapter and battery. Every laptop has a LED light indicating if it is in the charging mode (without powering up the laptop). Start out with your laptop shutdown. Pull out the battery, then plug in the AC Adapter. See any LED light go on? Try again, the same procedure now with the battery plug in first, then plug in the AC adapter. See any additional LED lights go on? If there is no different, than the laptop can not detect your battery. If the AC adapter can power up your laptop, you can eliminate the battery (assumed brand new battery) & AC adapter. This only leaves you with the laptop circuitry & contact terminal. If your laptop can charge up your old battery or any battery, then it might be still the battery & contact. So, you try these procedure to reduce down to the "problem" component.

Travelmate 2300 won't power on


The problem could be your bezel.  Remove the 3 screws from the hinges from the rear and you will be able to remove the black strip above the keyboard (after removing the screws, make sure laptop is layed wide open)  once removed, press the button on the motherboard under where the power button is.  If the unit still does not power up, then your motherboard is bad and needs to be replaced.  If it does power up, you need to replace the bezel.
