This is the DC power jack. Some solder points have most likely come undone. If it's in warranty have Compaq fix it for you. If not, you can call around and get the cheapest price you can to fix it. If your handy with a soldering iron and feel comfortable enough to take apart the laptop yourself, we can provide instructions on opening the case. You can purchase a new jack if need be for about $25 - $30. Just remember this most likely the problem. I can't say for sure without looking at it. You may want to take it in to get fixed just be on the safe side. Hope this helped.

Telecom r100 battery

It could be one of these three things.
1. Bad port. Often in laptops these ports become loose.
2. Bad battery.
3. Bad charger.

Borrowing either a universal power charger, or the charger from someone with a similar laptop, can eliminate some of the possibilities unless it is indeed your charging port.

If after plugging it in, the battery charges you know you had a bad charger. If the battery fails to charge, you know its time for a new battery. Again this only if the port itself is not bad.

Universal chargers can be expensive. You can find batteries and chargers on Ebay for a decent price.

How do i fix my asus eeepc that won't charge

First of all you have to narrow down your problem but finding out where is the problem exactly is it your battery or your charger so what you have to do find a charger from friend or so if similar is well and good
but always check the polarity it shold be exactly the same .and volts also then try to charge it its gives you a charged battery so you are sure its the problem with the charger and in the other case if still dosent charge its your batery so need replacement of either of 2.
other things you can check is when you plug in the charger to the laptop dose the notification comes on the light of plug and shows a batery with the plug icon on your taskbar. if yes just you need to check if its giving you the correct volts.
and if your laptop is working when connected to power only that means you have problem with battery .try removing it out for some time so its complitly drained and then clean the connection pins andreinsert it well and check.
thanks if its helpfull please cast some votes.

Batterey wont charge, charging port real loose. Is

If the charger port is already loose and the battery doesnt accept charge anymore then you have to replace the motherboard of the laptop. Port cannot be replaced individually,you have to replace the whole part for this issue.You can contact the manufacturer of your system and if it is in warranty then they will replace it for you.Try to check the charger/ac adapter make sure no part is damaged aswell...cheers!!!

Laptop died suddenly and is not charging

Take the battery out and discharge the capacitors by holding down the power button for 15 seconds. plug in the charger without the battery in to see if you get a charge light. If you do, replace battery and plug in charger and power on laptop. If this does not work, you may have to pull the cmos battery for 15 minutes and try it again.

Check and see if you conector into the pc is loose. If it is you are shorting the adapter and potentially the board. You will need to take the system to a tech that can repair the motherboard. If the system is still under warranty contact HP.
