Hi,

Ive worked on a friends G7000 series laptop, since it had the same symptoms you have with yours.

I tested it on my own(identical) working charger/PSU and still no charging.
After taking the motherboard out, i traced the fault to a short circuit FET (field effect transistor) with the PCB reference of PQ1, located right next to the connector for the DC power jack loom.(short from gate to source) The FET is made by Fairchild Semiconductors and its part number is FDS6675BZ. Being in the UK, i ordered the part from www.farnell.co.uk at a cost of 56pence. After changing this FET(which is there to control power) the laptop is working.

If you are not good with very intricate surface mount soldering, then i suggest you buy the component, take the motherboard out of the laptop(not too hard) and take them both down your local TV repair shop for them to check and change it(tell them the board reference PQ1).. shouldnt cost more than £20 or so been as they dont have to fault find.

Change power supply


Are you refering to the AC jack? Have you tried another Cord/charger of the EXACT same power specs? Has the AC jack been damager due to pulling on the cord?

Earlier my laptop shut down with no warning even though the charger was all connected and plugged in. now even though the charger is plugged in everytime i try to turn it back on the needs to be charged...


This could be caused by several things, but try the obvious first. I just bought a brand new power supply, and in less than a week the customer called and said it stopped working. I suggested she take the cord from the old charger and try it - it worked - the brand new cord lasted less than a week. The other thing that could cause this is a bad connection on the end of the power supply, going into the computer. It could even be a bad power supply.The last thing I can think of is a bad battery that won't hold a charge.

I hav a hp nx6120 but doesnt switch and wen you plug in the charger its no lighting


Take a look at the back of the laptop. Is the gold power pin still there or is it now stuck in in the end of the power brick cord?

HP actually extended the wty on these machines because of the
power pin issues. If the power pin is missing you will need to have the machine serviced. Out of wty, replacement power pins are easy to solder on the board if this is the issue.

If your pin is still there... Your AC cord or power brick may be the next things to check. Connecting them to a meter will tell you if there is power. Try moving the cords to check for shorts in the wires.

If your AC cord and brick are good, try pulling the battery. Your laptop can run off AC only. Batteries with bad cells can sometimes prevent the machine from powering up.

If its still not powering up after all of that, there may be an issue with the motherboard in the machine.

Hp dv1000 doesnt boot


Sounds like the battery is not being charged properly. With a voltmeter, check for voltage at the output of the charger that plugs into the computer. It should read several volts higher than the battery voltage rating. It is common for one of the wires to break just inside the plug. Radio Shack stores have a plug and cord that fits the computer, but the new wiring must be spliced into the original cord (with the correct polarity). Replacement cost for a new charger is quite high! Good luck!

My hp pavillion dv1000 wont turn on it is plugged in but the charging light doesnt show up and when i push the power button nothing happens


Problem with your charger, try this :

1. Check whether the charger plug is properly inserted in the Power port/jack of your Laptop!

2. Check the power cord (any cuts OR torn-out)!

3. If above steps don't work, replace your charger.

My laptop will not charge


Even if it's new it doesn't mean that it works. Either get another charger or power supply, or check the battery. But I'll go with the "new" charger.

My laptop doesnt turn on at all or do anything - help


Well, smoke is never a good sign.
Tell me, the 'something banged' thing, could that have been the laptop was being moved and the power cord was jerked at the connection to the laptop?
These are very prone to have problems with the ac jack coming loose from the motherboard (I have 3 in the shop right now with the same problem)
If you can, check and see if it's getting juice to the battery when plugged in using a multimeter.
Good luck
