Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook

1 Answer

Frozen computer My laptop has no battery life anymore it lives off a constant supply of electricty from it's charger. So if the cord is pulled out the computer turns off immediately. The other day i had half a dozen programs loading at once and the computer was having troubling responding to one or two. All of a sudden i bumped the charger cord and the computer turned off. So I tried to turn it back on but it won't go past the black hp invent screen that you see first when you start the computer. I've tried to press esc and f10 but it seems to be frozen... Can I do anything myself to fix it??

Computer say its always charging even when not on charger

Based on the symptoms I would suspect a failed lithium battery. Most people think they should keep their lithium batteries at 100% but that actually shortens the life (number or recharges). I always suggest that you should try and let your laptop run down to 50% before recharging. Leaving a laptop constantly plugged in results in the same outcome - constant recharging of small amounts so you can see that the 'life cycle' is related to the number of times you recharge and if you are constantly doing it then you will most likely be shortening the battery's useful life. Unfortunatley most laptops will not run without the battery so the user's only option is to run their laptops on battery and not plugged in to AC until at least 50% dissapation thus optimizing the battery.
Just in case you have not done this, try removing and reseating the battery. Jarring of the laptop can somtines alter a good connection but from what you said it is unlikely.

Y samsung netpad mod N210 mains power light at the laptop constantly changes from green to orange and is not charging the battery if i remove mains power the laptop go off immediately

Have you checked your Cord, Verify that the cord is good by using a computer like your, make sure the power specs are the same. Or get a cord and try it with your laptop. Perhaps the jack is damaged in your laptop, pulled, yanked, tugged, you get the idea. If so replace the AC jack. Bad Battery? How old, mine lasted 4 years.

My computer won't come on at all

Sounds like either a problem with your charger or the motherboard power pin, this is a common issue with laptops I probably install 2 or 3 of these a day. what happened is if the power supply cord constantly pulls on the ac plug going into the power pin if often breaks and seizes all power to the mother board. if thats the case the pin itself cost about 40 bucks new and a tech with soldering experience would perform about 150 bucks in labor. so about 190 if its the power pin, try replacing the charger first.

My Acer Aspire One was working correctly untill I powered it off yesterday. Now there is no charge indictor burning, and the power light stays out when pressed. And the netbook does not start up. So there...

Yes, it's either the charger ... the power connector ... the battery (not contacting well, or not charging anymore, or if a Li- Ion battery, it's depleted too low to start recharging anymore), or ... the power supply (circuitry) that's toasted.
Try removing and re-seating each component ... to see if the connection is the problem.
With the power charger inserted, try to power up ... and/or hold the power on for a while ... up to a minute or so, to see if it powers up.... and you get lucky.

Have a Gateway Laptop Computer Model #MT6708. Previously computer had blank screen and no power. Currently purchased new battery and power cord. Computer now operating screen and power is on. However, when...

First thing check that the battery charge light is on when the battery and the charger are connected.
If it is it indicates that the power supply is charging the battery,
If it isnt it may indicate a fault with the battery or that the charger is not compatable with the laptop or that there is a fault with the charger.
If the battery is charging then try running the laptop on battery only without the charger and on charger only without the battery.
This will eliminate which one is faulty.

You mentioned that if you wiggle the cord then the light comes on again.
Check to see if the charger end plug is lose or the actual port on the laptop is lose.
If the charger plug is lose then return to seller and make sure they gave you the correct charger. if the actual port on laptop is lose then perhaps u got a bad connection and you need electrician or local laptop technician to open it up and solder properly on motherboard.

Let me know how it goes.

Do you charge it from an outlet of via usb cord? If from an outlet, the charger just might not work anymore, but the usb cord that you use to put media on the mp3 player will charge it also.
