Pull the battery out of the laptop. Check the AC adapter to make sure the light is on, then plug the laptop in. Turn it on, if it doesn't boot, gently wiggle the end up and down side to side, while holding down the power button. If it boots, there is a problem with the DC jack, and it will need to be replaced.

    If it doesn't post, check the AC adapter to see if it is supplying power. Try a different outlet, or if you have access to a meter check it to see if it has the correct voltage.

    What happened is the laptop was running on the battery, and now the battery is dead. There are only two or three things that control the power. The ac adapter. the DC jack and the motherboard. Aparently you didn't like the wiggle it theory which is a test for a bad dc jack- the most common one. The next most common one is the AC adapter. Finally the failed motherboard.

When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of thepower cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous.

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoeverwhen you press the power button. And if that's true maybe you wasoperating off the battery the last time you had it on and since the power cordis bad, it was not charging the battery so the battery is drained and the powercord is bad.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove theBattery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the batteryout) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can putthe battery back in and let it charge.Maybe your DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugsinto the computer is bad. Take an ink pen and push the tip inside thejack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have totake the laptop apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto themotherboard, so you will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.

Why does my compaq presario v2000 battery always drain even while plugged in?


If the battery fully charges and lasts in normal use without the charger plugged into the laptop, then this clearly indicates a problem with the charge circuits in the computer, unfortunately this is built into the motherboard.

You need to replace your old battery. Don't over charged your battery. If you are using your laptop in your house it is better not to use it with battery. Just use the power adaptor/supply only. Then make sure you will drain the battery let say once a week. =)

Can not use my labtop without being plug in. the battery light is dem.


then theres a chance the battery is shot. this happens alot with labtops it seems and the only way to fix this would be to purchase a new battery. what happens is not all computers run on just AC power and when fully charged still use the battery. when the computer is plugged in all the time its constantly useing and charging the battery at the same time and this causes the battery to drain entirely and become useless, here is a link to get a new battery. i sugest looking around online to find better pricing but heres a start. hope this helps :)

I have an hp compaq 6720s and my charge port light blinks rapidly, it wont let me charge my battery and the computer wont turn on when the battery is full any thoughts?


Usually a rapid blinking charge light is alerting you of a battery fault. Try taking the battery out, plugging your computer in, and turning it on (with the battery out). If it boots up, then your battery is to blame, call customer service right away and see about getting a new battery.

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.

It could be that your battery is defective/worn out. If the computer just shuts off immediately (doesnt try to hibernate/standby) then you're likely looking at replacing the battery. They can suddenly do things like this if a cell shorts out in the battery or due to common wear. But first, here are a couple of things you can try.

1. Try reseating the battery (pull it out and put it back in). Sometimes something that simple can fix the problem.
2. Try to calibrate the battery. Your computer may come with instructions on how to do this, but if not you can do it manually. Turn the computer on but go into BIOS (press F10 at the compaq logo screen). Don't load your operating system
Unplug your computer. If it turns off at this point, your battery is already toasted. Replace it.
If the computer keeps running, let it go until it finally shuts off due to battery drain. Then plug it back in and let it recharge completely. This will let the microchip in the battery learn its charge potential and may allow you to get more life out of it.

Note: Calibrating these batteries is good practice but it shouldn't be done very often. If your calibration doesn't work after 1 or 2 tries, you probably still are looking at a dead battery.
