Here's something you can do:
Take it to a Walmart where they sell Kingston Ultra Compact Notebook Power Adapters. Ask before you buy it if you can pay for it, then plug it in in the store. If your computer does not start (make sure you use the right adapter for your brand laptop; see chart on back of box), then get a refund before leaving the store. (Paying with a credit card makes all this painless and risk free.)

(Get a sticker on your laptop as you walk in the door to clarify that you brought it in with you.)

My power cord seems to not be working with this computer. I have tried all the outlets in my house and nothing is charging my laptot.

I'd call HP and request a new power adapter. I've had a few of them go bad before and it's just a short in the cord. Your plug might be loose also...but a good place to start is by calling HP and getting a new cord.

I have experienced this problem with several HP laptops. Invariably the solution has been replacing the power supply. It seems the HP power supplies go bad but don't quite die resulting in them still delivering power, just not quite enough.

Power cord will not charge battery

There are only 3 things involved, The power supply, external, the Power supply Internal, and the ACPI software. The ONLY way to isolate the exact problem is to replace items with "Known Good" ones. IE: Change the battery and check, change or test the wall adapter, and check, Also check your ACPI Power Setting in your laptop. Usually it is NOT software.

My computer shuts off randomly by itself sometimes

Shut-downs can be caused for "all manner of reasons" (including overheating).
The cause of over heating can be due to
1) fault in power supply.change the power supply.
2) Any of the internal wire connections are got turn of your computer.then unplug it from main power outlet.then remove all the exaternal wires connected to the computer.then if its laptop open the back of the laptop and check out internally if any wire of hard disk,power supply is got loose.if its proper then also remove the wire and reconnect it.but if its normal cpu and not laptop then open the cpu by removing screws and diconnect all wires and reconnect it again.then connect all the external wires as it were before and check out.
3) if its laptop then it can also be the battery issue.if the battery is not charged then also this can some cases battery is fauty so it shows its charged but actually not replace the battery and check out.
This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

HP Pavilion dv2020us laptop battery won't charge

How is your power supply? does it seem like you have to wiggle your cord that connects to computer to make it recieve power?...Many laptops power supply become loose over time form moving the cord around..when it does, the battery has a hard time getting electric power to recharge. Also, you my have other problems with your lithium internal battery that powers your cmos.

Check to see if your power supply is loose and go from there. the power supply is the little hole where you connect the cord to the laptop.

let me know what the status is

Laptop won't power up

This is something that unfortunately will require a technician to figure out. It could be the motherboard is gone, it could be the power supply is gone, or it could be any number of other things.
You did not specify, but if it is doing absolutely nothing I would be inclined to think it is indeed something major.

Sorry for the bad news.

Generally I would say power supply, but I'm leaning towards the power management chip on the motherboard. You can send it off and have it repaired or replace the board.

HP Pavillion power link blinks

aa505 -

I can almost guarantee you this is an issue with the power jack on the laptop's motherboard. Even though it may not appear to be loose, its most likely the solder connection on the motherboard has broken, only allowing intermittent connection when the laptop is in /just/ the right position.

It'd be best to get this looked at sooner rather than later, preferrably if the computer is still under warranty. The connection will steadily decline, until the laptop is unusable.

Otherwise, let me know if you want to get rid of the system! I have a system, almost exactly the same model, that I need parts for!

Hope this helps!

Power supply malfunction?

Remove the battery and try the cord again. Complete with the moving it around. It sounds like you have already diagnosed the loose DC plug adaptor, but the battery could have gone terminal.
