Your are probably experiencing a short in your ac cable, the next time it happens wiggle the cable, if the ac pops up in the task bar stop using the charger and buy a replacement.
PS check the slot where the adapter plugs in the back of the laptop to see if its loose, if it is take to the repair shop.
compaq are known for tis problem.

Computer wont charge the light comes on every few mins for about a min then goes off i can turn it on but only stays on a few mins i have a compaq presario r3000


The lithium batteries that laptops use have a 3 year lifespan. If you have had the battery for that amount of time then you have reached the end of it's life cycle. Most manufacturers build in a warning message that will pop up to let you know that you have reached that time frame and it is time to change the battery. If your battery is not that old then you have an issue either with the battery itself or the charging system built into the laptop. The only way to identify what the problem is would be to switch out the battery to another laptop and see if it would charge properly. If you do not have any access to the same model of laptop that you are currently using then the other choice would be to take your unit into your local HP-Compaq repair center. Usually the batteries are warranted for as long as the original warranty period on your laptop. The warranty would not cover the life cycle. If age is the problem then your only recourse is to buy another battery.


Thank you for the opportunity to assist you in resolving your issue. Should you need further information or assistance please do not hesitate to let us know.

Compaq R3000 new battery but does not work


Make sure you have the right AC Adapter hooked up to charge the battery with.

If you do then its a problem with the motherboard. If your using an offbrand ac adapter then that could be the culprit.

Compaq Presario R3000. Push power button and lights come on then goes dead before booting. Occassionally Windows will start booting the it goes dead. Any suggestions?


Either the power supply is putting out too low voltage or the power jack is bad.Try moving the ac adapter tip around while its starting up to see if it keeps it running or shuts it off.If it makes no difference try another ac adapter that does work for sure and see if thats the problem.If neither approach works,then the HDD may be seizing or one of the ram sticks may be bad.Some sort of hardware conflict can cause shut downs.You would have to take the bootstrap approach to narrow it down to one pacific component.

Compaq Presario v2000 notebook reduced battery life


you may try:
1) check the battery alarm at windows power managment, to set 5-10% alarm level.
2) discharge the battery to the empty then charge longer time, you need monitoring how long it charged (see charge lights change), need to change new one if charging time much less then before(less then 10-20 minutes)..
3) plug-in AC adapter monitoring charging current,
this step you need a current meter to make a series connection in the circuite, the battery is over life cycle if the current less then 500mA.

Compaq Presario R3000 dim screen but not dark


Sounds like the auto-dim in the BIOS is set too low. Fortunately the Compaq R3000 allows you to adjust the brightness right from the keyboard. Hold down the [FN] function key while tapping the [F8] key will brighten the screen, while [FN]-[F7] will dim it. The settings are different for running on AC power and battery, so you must do each individually.

My Compaq R3000 does not charge up


The problem might be the battery itself. Four years is a long time for rechargeables. Also, check if the error ocurs when the battery is not in the slot.

Battery won't charge


If the battery is not charging, then the charging circuit of the motherboard is bad.

Page 3-22 lists the spare part number for the motherboard. (4 versions depending on options)

Chapter 5 covers disassembly and reassembly

Laptop won't stay on


it might as well be a internal problem related to power or loose contacts with RAM or the power chords internally.
Better to go to the technician in this case.
Your first Battery would have been fine too..
