Computer won't acknowledge power souce - shuts down

I've had the mother board replaced (as of today) for the third time in one year. The most recent was Feb 2008. But, its all under an extended warranty.

The problem is, while the laptop is on - the battery icon comes on showing its loosing power and very quickly the laptop shuts down. The problem is, I am plugged in. Each time this has occured, HP determined the mother board needed replacing, a new battery and A/C adapter. And now I'm on my third mother board, A/C adapter and new battery.

ANY suggestions!

Try taking the battery completely out and see if it works then.

Power on a hp mother board


As a student of electronics, you would be a better judge of the worth of the Laptop Parts in YOUR hands. As a project in what you can make work from parts , why not. As a workable, useful machine , doubtful. Ask yourself, Is it a project, and you have access to Misc. computer parts that will fit this or do I have to invest Time and Money , and end up with nothing but a jumble of broken computer parts. Do your self a favor, List the working Spare Parts on Ebay, make a few bucks and 1, Have a few beers, 2, Save the money towards buying a good used computer.

My computer shuts down without any warning at all. The problem has occurred 4 times this week when charger is unplugged but power icon still shows me approximately 50% battery. Sometimes computer lets me...


Check you power settings. It is possible that it is set to shut down at 50% battery power.

If it is overheating, that too will cause a shutdown. What is happening at the time of shut down? Are the vents on the laptop being blocked in any way?

Everything ok yesterday and at least the last two years. Today switch on (several times) green, blue orange lights come on, nothing on screen, then everything shuts down.


Sounds like Maxim 1987 chip needs resoldering onto mother board. There's many entries on Google that tell you how to do it, but it's a hard fix for a non expert solderer. Pressing down on the right hand side of the keyboard as you switch on will often allow the laptop to start up (temporarily). GOOD LUCK!

Boots up fine runs for awhile then shuts down for no apparant reason.


Most times if computer runs and then shuts down it is mother board over heating. It shuts down to prevent damage. Try to clean you mother board fan and also make sure no dust in the exhaust part on the bottom of the computer. You can clean it with air can for computers just make sure you hold it upright because if it is sideways or upside down it will put out freezing air and it can damage you computer. Hope this helps.

Cannot turn-on my laptop


Hello Mahriah.
Try the following steps:
1) Remove the AC adapter and battery from the notebook. 2) Press the power button and hold it for a minute. 3) Reconnect the AC adapter, battery  and try starting the computer.
The issue might be with the excessive power in the capacitors on the Mother Board. We are performing the Power Drain procedure which will drain all the excessive power from the capacitors and it may make the laptop to work properly.
