Question about HP Pavilion dv4000 Notebook

1 Answer

My grandson has a hp pavilion dv4 2145 dx entertainment notebook and he is having trouble charging the battery. His brother has the same kind of computer and he has tried charging the battery with his charger but it just won't charge the battery. If he takes the battery out and puts it in his brothers computer it will charge the battery that way.

First of all, you need to make sure your power adapter is providing enough power to both run the laptop & charge the battery. A very good way to do this is to compare your laptop voltage & ampere requirements (written on a sticker on the bottom of the laptop) with the voltage & ampere ratings of the power adapter. Voltages should be the same, or the power adapter's voltage about up to 0.5 volts more than the laptop's voltage rating. Amperage of the power adapter should be at least equal to or greater than the laptop's rating. It should never be less than the laptop's rating, or else the power adapter will be providing insufficient amperes to charge the battery. Of course, the power adapter's nominal amperage might be ok, but it degraded on usage. You can verify this by testing using a good or new power adapter.
If the battery did not charge using the new power adapter, take the battery off the laptop, & using a dry tooth brush, scrub in between the fins of the battery connector on the motherboard & on the battery it self, then put the battery back into the laptop & try again.
If this still did not resolve the problem, then the battery itself could be bad. Try it on another laptop, or try a good or new battery in your laptop.
If this did not work, there might be a possibility that the charging circuitry on the laptop's motherboard is defective & needs servicing. In order to do this, the laptop needs to be disassembled & the motherboard checked for defective/burned out components in the area near the DC jack. Any defective/burned out components found should be replaced, or you might need to replace the laptop's motherboard altogether

    I have an HP Pavilion dv7-1130 Entertainment Laptop, and as of recently, when I try to turn it on, the lights around the keyboard power on and the fan runs, then the fan stops and the lights stay on. No...

    With an extensive use of the notebook,
    some times notebook would store some static charges which
    indeed will stop the notebook from powering up or charging
    the battery. The procedure to remove this static charges from
    the notebook is known as power drain. Performing a power
    drain procedure will not effect any personal data or delete
    any pictures from the hard drive on your notebook.
    I recommend you use Power Drain procedure by following these

    1. Disconnect the AC Adapter.
    2. Remove the Battery.
    3. Hold the Power button down for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
    4. Reconnect the AC adapter.
    5. Turn on the Notebook power.
