How to fix HP Pavilion dv9000


try it with the AC Adapter plugged in but without the battery. If the battery is too bad, it can prevent even the AC adapter from powering the laptop.

I bot a hp mini laptop recently.. ws working well..bt sddnly it ws nt chrgng ystrday and showed cross sign over battery in control panel.. why is it nt chrgn and wht to do?


If the laptop is still working when it is plugged in , then the ac adapter is good and the battery is just bad. If the laptop will not work when it is plugged in then more than likely the ac adapter is bad.

IPaq rx3115 working like PC not Pocket PC, need to plugin always


You need to purchase a new removable battery for your RX
The removable batts usually only last about a year (like cell phone batteries).
Although it is showing 100% charge, the battery is not storing enough power to run the ipaq

The rx series uses 2 batteries, one is the removable one u can see/access when u remove the back cover. The other batt is a small round batt which stores the basic info for your system (so you don't lose your data when u swap out the removable battery).

This small (backup) batt is similar to the cmos battery on a laptop or pc.
You cannot easily replace this, as the unit needs to be disassembled to access this batt.
If you are tech-y (and brave), the replacement button batteries are sold on ebay for $9-12

Normally, if your removable batt is bad, you could still use your unit plugged in, and could
remove from AC power without losing data. Not the case if your replaceable batt is exhausted.
When both batteries are bad, you lose everything when u remove unit from AC power.

My workaround without having to disassemble unit:
Purchase and fully charge new removable batt (They have huge capacity ones available for like $15 - better than the original !).
Load up all your programs & settings the way you like.
Perform full backup to SD card (& also on PC via active sync - to be safe)
Now the only time you should lose your data (like hard reset) is if you allow the battery
to completely drain, in which case you can restore your backup.
If you purchase 2 removable batts, you can easily swapout without losing data if you
use the usb charge cable & leave ipaq plugged in while you change battery

Hope this helps

Battery problems


It should fix the problem, did you make sure you got the right battery(correct model number etc? like a genuine OEM battery).

If that doesnt fix it, go into your control panel, power settings, and select the battery option.. and check how your laptop uses the battery when its not plugged into AC power.

If that doesnt fix it, then contact HP, if its still under warrenty, it might be the AC terminal thats going bad, and might need the computer serviced. BTW how old is the computer?

No power


HI,
you haven't mentioned clearly is the laptop in on state or are the batteries able to give power to laptop to start

try this solution if you have checked that the Ac Adapter is finr

take out the battery from the laptop and then plugin the AC adapter and then try to start your laptop

if your laptop starts without the battery by getting power through the Ac adapter, most likely your battery is Bad, get it replaced, if it doesn't start then it can be power circuit on the motherboard or the connectors you should get it checked from a technician.

If you think my solution was helpfull please do rate me

Battery doesn't stay charged


The problem is with the battery. All Lithium batteries last for around 1000 charges or so. Since the laptop is 2-years old the battery needs to be replaced.
I Hope this solves your problem. Kindly Accept my solution.

Hp notebook zd8000 wont power on


In this case i suggest you to remove the battery from the notebook and try to power on the notebook with the help of AC adapter so that you come to know whether the issue is with the Battery or AC adapter. If still the notebook is not getting power with AC adapter you need to take for service retailer store and fix the issue.

No power whatsoever, but...


Try taking the battery out and running the laptop with just the AC adapter.

Also you should use a multimeter to test your AC adapter for voltage. If there is voltage from your AC adapter and the unit will not turn on with the battery removed then you have a faulty motherboard or another component in the laptop.

If it works without the battery all you need to get is a new battery or live with it without battery.

ZD7000 Lights, no fans, power switch not working.............


Dismantled notebook thinking compressed air removed component or connection. Nothing. Reassembled most of notebook. Left battery and power disconnected for 6.5 hours, I later plugged only AC power into unit. Fans started spinning. Completed assemble of notebook and installed the battery. Blue lights returned. Problem seems to be the battery. Shorts out something and needs about 6 hours drain out. Works great now without battery, using AC power only. Ordered new battery.....
