Question about HP Compaq Presario V2000 Notebook

Problem with power

My V2000 (about 2 years old) has recently started having problem with power and net work card. When i switch to battery it does not show the power meter.Even in control panel power options. when i click the power meter tab it goes"not responding".
Also my network card is not working properly, When I plug in the network cable , windows shows that it's connecting then in next second it states that the network cable is unplugged. this happens continuously.
Windows XP did not function well also. Had problems with shutting down and restarting, Some times it takes a very long time to shut down and also at the boot up.

First i tried reinstalling windows xp thinking it was a software problem, But found it difficult to reinstall, severall times it did not installed properly the same problems appear when restarting during the installation.

(before about one year back i also found a problem with my modem. When using AC power my dial up internet connection was very slow. but when i switched to battery the internet connection speeds up. I can clearly see the data download rate drops as I turn back the AC power, I didn't bother to fix this problem as i started using an ADSL connection )

    no i dont here any strange noises in hard disk but i also found another problem that is after i shut down windows after few hours still the area where the hard disk is hot. and If I switch off the AC power Still it seems to work with the battery. Untill the battery is full dead (that is when i press the power button the light indicates flashing). i think for some reason hard drive keeps working even after i shut down using windows. So now when i shut it down I not only switch off the AC power but also remove the battery.

Compaq Presario V2000 seems to have intermittent problems with its power supply . In any case check out to see if there are any strange noises from your harddisk which you can hear if put your ear close to the laptop after switching it on .

Borrow a "MultiMeter" and check the VOLTAGE and AMPERAGE output from the battery. Although it's rare for an 18-month-old battery to "die" (or to refuse to recharge), it can happen.

If you try to run the computer _only_ on the battery, without AC power, does it work? If not, replace the battery -- look on eBay for cheaper-than-Original-Equipment replacement batteries.

Try taking out battery and plug in power. If it works, battery is faulty. If not,
Try taking out your hard disk plug in power, if it works, hard disk is faulty. If not,
Try taking out memory card, if there's a sound, memory card faulty. If no sound, it's your motherboard that is causing the error.
Note: If machine is under warranty no need to pay for the repairs.

My Compaq R3000 does not charge up


The problem might be the battery itself. Four years is a long time for rechargeables. Also, check if the error ocurs when the battery is not in the slot.
