Hi, your problem is the DC socket Plug on the motherboard. This is a solution 5$ (for the plug only) and soldering iron and solder. If it is within warranty give it straight away for repair at their cost. THIS IS a VERY common problem to HP laptops. Dont Accept anything other than a full repair. (requires dissasembly of the plastics to expose the connector and be able to resolder it.)

If it is out of warranty then find the plug, and DIY or engineer friends may be in order :) If you send it to 3rd partie tech shops they may charge 100-150$ for a 5$ spare part..the rest is their time spent and many six packs.

Regards

I Have A Compaq Evo N600c Laptop No Power Help!!!


Yeah it could be. Always use the correct adapter mentioned for your laptop. Otherwise it could harm the inner wirings and the motherboard. Always go for the right adapter. If it was any motherboard problem, atleast it would've blinked. So this might be the problem of your adapter or may be of the power button.

Evo N600C, display is 'dim' and mainly 'red'


There is one CCFL lamp on the bottom edge of the LCD screen.
You may have a faulty inverter or loose power inverter connection. OR
You may have a defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom: Screen flashs on red/pink and off. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering with dim display or appear black. Picture flickering on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp.
Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

Fried something?


A half volt will not make any difference. Sounds like the power supply is malfunctioning. Start by trying a different one. Keep in mind that you may have fried the new motherboard by using a faulty power supply. Popping sounds indicate a short or loose/exposed wires, and are never good with any electrical device, especially a laptop since they are sensitive to power fluctuations to begin with.
