Question about Compaq Presario M2000 Notebook

2 Answers

Power My last adapter was touchy and my laptop would charge on and off (the screen would flicker) because the adapter was loose. My battery was completely drained down to 0% and so I bought a new adapter so I could turn my laptop back on but it won't turn on. Could my "power port" be screwed up or do I just need a new battery? The battery that came from the factory with my laptop had a life of only 2 hours at the very most so it sucked to begin with.

    We have the same problem. I got a new adapter and nothing happened. I took it to best buy and he hooked it up to something and said the power source is fine, It must be the motherboard. So we now are trying to take it apart to see if it is something else. We can't get the thing apart!! AARGGHHH! Any other suggestions?

Hey, well with my old adaptor I had to wiggle it around..I even used tape to hold it in a certain position so that it would charge my computer and after a while it just wouldn't work anymore so I ordered a new adaptor..I am going to take it in to a shop. Hopefully it doesn't cost too much beings how laptops are so cheap now! Thanks for the response!

Laptop screen flickering when battery charging


The power supply adapter may not be delivering enough power when you run it and trying to charge the battery at the same time. The only way to find out is sub another power supply.

The indicators on the right are flickering from red to green and back again. I checked the power (the adaptor is plugged in) and the energy level is 95 %.


Sometimes this indicates a problem with the battery. Try unplugging the power cord and see how long the battery lasts. If its not very long, then thats the problem. Its noemally something to do with the charging circuit.
Hope this helps.... Dale

Compaq Presario 1200 won't charge battery


dear N9YK

you can follow this

If you have a loose connection where you plug in the power on your laptop, or it works intermittently, you could have a bad dc jack. Symptoms
  • Move the power plug and the laptop loses connection
  • Broken or cracked dc jack
  • Laptop won't charge but worked on battery
  • Power LED and battery LED flicker when the adapter tip is moved
  • Battery won't charge
  • Sparks come out the back of the laptop
Why does this happen?
  • Flaw in manufacturer designs
  • Use of universal or non-original ac adapter
  • Lots of plugging and unplugging of the ac adapter
  • Tripping on or pulling the ac adapter cord
or you can check your dc amper in your adaptor

oke



thx
