Test the adapter with another laptop in other to confirm if truly the adapter is still good. If the adapter works, then it means your laptop is having a power problem.

This has nothing to do with the battery because whether or not the battery is good or bad, that doesn't say the laptop shouldn't work with the adapter.

So the problem as to be either from the laptop's power board or from the AC adapter.

Tale care.

Hi i was using m compaq nc8000, when it turned off suddenl even though it was plugged into the when i tr to turn it on it sounds like it is going to start,the yellow charge light comes on and then...

try removing you battery and powering it up....
it could be your charger,even if the power led is on there still could be a voltage failure...i,ve sorted a few laptops like that before.....
Or it could be the charging port connected to the motherboard??
Try to gently wiggle the adapter going into the charging port and powering it see if that makes a diffence....

Hope this helps...if so please take the time to rate it,as i,ve taken the time to answer you...if i can be anymore help...

Hp compaq stopped working after adapter cord was damaged. replaced adapter. press power button, won't turn on. How do you check battery?

Your laptop should start even without battery inserted.
You should check the ac adapter (try to measure the output voltage )

Flat battery

Normally the micro switch that decides to charge battery or use main power goes, its a known fault in laptops today , its a big job to replace them . your best bet is to search ebay for a secound hand board or even the same laptop for parts and replace your main board. hope this helps you in some way.

oh when you plug in the main adapter hold it in a angle slightly for 5 secounds and see if it reconizes its plugged in try figure if its a conection problem on the laptop itself. but i think myself its the micro switch on the main board that is fualty.

Voltage HP 6715b

Look up the voltage acceptable for a HP  6715b laptop in the manual  that came with it. Go to Radio Shack and buy a $9.00 Grounded Adapter Plug. Be sure you take the HP power cord.
