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.

Hi my presario cq62 battery is not charging can u help me


There are 4 things this could be:
1.) There may be an issue with your outlet/power strip. Try plugging the power cable into a different outlet.
2.) The power cable's brick (that box-like component in the middle of the cable) may have gone bad. Some bricks will have a green LED on them to show when they are operating properly. If the LED is OFF, you need to replace the power cable. If it's ON, the cable is probably OK. If there is no LED, test with a multi-tester.
3.) Your battery may be bad and, therefore, cannot charge. The steps to test this are below (after #4).
4.) You're DC jack (the part inside of your laptop which the power cable plugs into) has broken solder joints due to too much tugging of the power cable over time. The steps to test this are below.
For issues 3 and 4, try the following: 1.) Remove the battery, 2.) Plug the power cable into the laptop, 3.) Try to turn ON your laptop.
If your laptop can power ON, then the power cable and DC jack are working fine and your battery needs replaced. If checking the brick's LED (Issue #2) has proven the power cable is fine, AND the laptop does not power ON, then you need the DC Jack resoldered (PC shop).
I hope this is helpful and best of luck!

When adapter plugged in computer starts then goes


There could e a problem with the battery. A fast check to determine whether you have a problem with the power adapter, power cord or the laptop's battery is to turn off the laptop, remove the battery, connect the power adapter, turn on the laptop & see if it works.
If the laptop works directly from the power adapter with the battery removed, then the power adapter is good. In this case we can suspect that the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.

Try also to reseat the main components of the notebook: the battery, the AC adapter, the memory modules, & the hard drive.
After that try switching it on & see if the problem was fixed.

Toshiba satellite laptop will not power on if you plug in the power cord.even you take off the battery. but it will turn on if on battery power. if its runnung already it freezes if you plug in the power...


I would suspect that either your power cord or power adapter is defective.
Try testing using a new power cord/adapter & see if this fixes the problem.

Another possibility might be a loose or defective power connector in the laptop. Check the connector where you plug the power cord. It might need to be re-soldered or replaced.

When trying to start up my dell latitude CPX nothing happens, and when I plugg up the wall charger, there is a blinking light but still no power


A blinking light normally indicates a dead battery; however, since it does not power up when power is plugged in, I would suspect that the power jack on the motherboard needs to be repaired. This would explain the lack of power and the inability to charge the battery. I replace powerjacks a lot. Good luck. -Carlos:

there are different ways on how to check the problem you encounter regarding on your machine. kindly follow the procedures below:

- if the machine won't turn on after taking out the battery and pugging in the power, take out the hard disk, plug in th power. if it works, suspected hard disk faulty. (replace hard disk)

Flashing battery light orange three times then one green?


Try charging your battery for about 30mins, light orange still came up it means your battery is faulty. To confirm, take out your battery and plug in power. If it turned on, i strongly suspected it's a battery faulty. You need to replace it.

No power


It the notification occurred while the AC adapter was connected to the system, then I'd suspect the AC adapter 1st.

If available, try another compatible ac adapter and see if the system powers on.

Since the system will not power on with AC adapter alone, I suspect it has failed.

Places Like Best Buy, should have a bench AC adapter you could test to see if the system powers on, if so, then buy a replacement.

If under warranty, contact HP tech support.
