Question about HP NC6000 df647av Keyboard

1 Answer

NC 6000 Issue: The laptop doesn't power on at all, So far I tried a different power adapter, and removed the battery. The next thing is to remove the ram which is under the keyboard. I am trying to remove the keyboard but removing the two screws on the bottom of the laptop and the little locks on top of the keyboard (ESC, F4, F8, and F12) was not enough. Looking at the keyboard the bottom right corner is still attached by something??? I looked on the bottom of the laptop again and didn't see any other *****... HELP.

Charger is plugged but in not charging


I see that when the Adapter is plugged-in on the Laptop it does not charge, Have you tried a different AC Adapter to see if this is an Adapter issue or if this will be a hardware issue.

This concern can be an Adapter issue try a known good AC Adapter to see if the laptop will Charge or not if still it does not remove the battery and try the Known good AC Adapter to see if the Laptop will power ON using the known good adapter if it does then the issue can be the Battery or the Charger Board in the laptop now use the Old AC Adapter and see if the Laptop will as well turn ON with out the Battery if it does then the issue is either the Battery on the laptop or the charger board on the Laptop.

I hope this helps.

Hi, I have a inspiron 6000. 6 years old but works like a charm. Only problem now is the adapter won't charge [not an adapter issue as it works on other dell laptops]. And after the battery has...

Remove the battery and replace it, test. If this does not work, attempt to power on with the AC adapter plugged in and no battery in the system. If this works, you have a bad battery. If this does not work, watch the light on the ac adapter. If the green light goes out when you press the power button, something more is wrong with the system. Further information is desired. When you press the power button, do any lights on the system light up? Do the fans in the computer turn on? Does it make ANY noise? Finally, if available, it is desirable to try a different and known functional AC adapter.

Power up issue

There could be a problem with the battery. A fast check to determine whether you have a problem with the power adapter, power cord or the laptop's battery is to turn off the laptop, remove the battery, connect the power adapter, turn on the laptop & see if it works.
If the laptop works directly from the power adapter with the battery removed, then the power adapter is good. In this case we can suspect that the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.

Can't go any further

If the system is still powering on then off, it is most likely a power issue.
First, remove the battery, see if the system will power on with the AC adapter alone. If no power indication at all (Which is what I expect) then there is a problem supplying power to the system. If the system turns on and runs normally without the battery, then replace the battery.
If available, try a different AC adapter (Ant Dell D-Series AC adapter will work) and see if the system powers on normally. If it does, replace the AC adapter. If you connect a known good ac adapter and the system doesn't power on, then remove the drives, the modem, wireless card and memory and see if any change. If still no change, then replace the motherboard.
If symptoms change after removing all removable items, add 1 memory module back and see if the system will POST. If it does, add items back one at a time till the bad item is identified, then replace that item.

Laptop wont turn on

Below you will find my recommendations for troubleshooting this issue.
1. Remove the battery.
2. Confirm that the AC adapter has power.
3. Remove all the customer removable units (CRU) except a single ram module.
Here CRUs to be remove:
* Optical drive
* Primary Battery
* PCMCIA cards
You will only removed the above peripherals if Dell will allow it.
7. Connect the AC adapter directly to the system.
6. Attempt to power on the system using only the AC adapter.
7. If the system does not POST, connect an external monitor and check for POST. This will let you know if there is a problem with the LCD.

I hope this helps resolve the issue.

Please help

could be a problem with the battery, power adapter, memory or motherboard. Remove the battery and try turning on the computer with just the power adapter. If no go, test another power adapter. try another battery. Reseat the memory modules, or try using other working memory modules. You may also check this HP support site:

Labtop not charging

Try removing the battery and see if the laptop powers on. If it still doesn’t power on then either the motherboard is defective or the AC adaptor may have a broken wire in the cable.

Acer Travelmate C112TCi- Won't power on

Remove the adapter and the battery from the laptop.
Press the power button and hold it down for 20 seconds(without the battery or adapter plugged in to it). This process is called POWER DRAIN.
Now connect only the adapter and try to turn it on.
If it starts up, there is no problem with the adapter or the laptop.
If it doesn't, it can be either the adapter or the laptop.
You will have to check it with a different adapter to confirm which one is faulty.

The second case is that the computer powers on only with the adapter.
Then you can put the battery back in and try powering it up.
If it doesn't work, try connecting the adapter too.
If still it doesn't work, its a faulty battery.

Sometimes after doing a power drain, the computer will work fine.
If you have any more issues, feel free to contact me.
