Question about HP Compaq nc6000 Notebook

1 Answer

I just used my laptop at work and when I got home with it and connected it, I can't get the power on, and I hear a little sound from the powercord (or the transformator - the thingy between powercord and the socket to the laptop...) So, it seems as if the socket itself works but not getting through to the laptop.. Any tips?

1. Take the battery out of the laptop & try to turn on the laptop using power adapter only. If the computer turns on, then the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
2. Make sure the power adapter is not defective. Test the output voltage of the power adapter using a voltmeter. Compare the voltmeter reading to the nominal value written on the adapter or the laptop.
3. Make sure the DC jack is not loose or broken. A loose DC jack will need to be re-soldered. A broken one will need to be replaced.
4. If you have another processor which is compatible with your laptop's model, try swapping processors & test to see if the laptop will work.
5. The power button could be bad.
6. The motherboard could be defective & needs to be replaced.

My battery is not charging in my laptop, Great Quality Brand


If the laptop is about 2 years old (can be less) then I would say your battery is dead and needs replacement. That is very common and typical of all brands.

Replacment cost is sometimes covered under warrenty so check if you are still covered. A new battery is worth $60 to $160 depending on make model and age.If you are paying for it check around as the price can really differ from place to place.

My Dell C840 Latitude has a 1.8Ghz processer but when I checked system it says it's only running 789 Mhz. Is my processer going bad?


Go Into Control Panel, select Power Options, and change Power Scheme from Laptop/Laptop to Home/Office Desk. Make sure you have AC Adapter plugged in and your should now be using all of CPU. Check System icon from Control Panel to confirm. CPU usage may show as less when laptop is booted from battery power only.

A humming noise when my battery is connected to the laptop.


Hi there.
The problem is battery if the machine works on AC power only, you will have to get a new battery or continue to use it on mains power until you can get a new battery.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Can't get power to my laptop.don't know if it's the laptop, or the powercord


Look for a friend around and trouble shoot swapping the power cords. But I believe it must be your power cord that should be replaced.

Do the trouble shooting before replacing.

Problem with booting my A205-S4577 with the powercord on


Have you tried a new power AC/DC convertor ? make sure you have the correct spec...see manual for power adaptor needed. Cost less if you can get a loan of one. other than this i would be looking into checking the power jack. hope this helps

Ironically, 5 days after the paid warrenty expired (2 years and 5 days after I bought this piece of equipment), the A105-4254, it suddenly died on me! It always had a "loose connection" to the AC...


It is not the power cord but the input jack itself. You will need to bring it to someone that can solder in a new connector. This is what they look like from the inside. Most local computer or electronic stores can make the repair for you. Should be around $50-$75. Make sure you don't pay too much.

According of your description, If you already changed the power suply, and the battery, and still no signs to power on, your laptop has some issue at power connector in the motherboard and need to be serviced.

Which powercord to use?


In the bottom of the laptop you can find the input required, make sure the voltage matches the requirement and the connection is the right way.

from what you said I can't tell if its too stong, can you adjust the voltage? look in the bottom it is documented there on a label.
