Question about HP Compaq Presario V5000Z Notebook

Compaq V5000 Laptop wont recongnise / charge battery anymore

I brought an after market battery for my V5000, and it worked a treat for about two weeks. Then all of a sudden the computor would only run for about 2 mins before powering off instantly.

A local computor shop found that by removing the battery, and AC power, and attempting to start the computor ( to drain all power ) then only powering on with AC fixed the problem. However if the battery was put back in it reverted the old problem.

I sent the battery back, and was given a replacement - which also worked perfectly for about two weeks, then did exactly the same.

Second time around the computor shop found that by up dating the bias they could get the computor to run with the battery installed.

The persistant problem is now that the laptop does not 'see' the battery, although displays it's remaining power ( 3% ). Consequently it wont charge the battery, even though the battery indicator shows it charging when on AC power.

I took the battery to a battery shop, and they said that they suspected that the power board may be faulty - rather than it being a battery related problem.

Any feed back appreciated.

    I've pretty much come to that, although the orginal battery is dead, hence the replament. I'm trying to establish the problem, rather than sending back a perfectly good battery for the second time if it is the computor's issue. Thanks.

    I have the axzct same issue. The diference is the charging indicator shows the attery charging, however when the laptop is unplugged fron the AC, the computer dies. I purchased a brand new battery with the same results. I checked the power settings, AC adapter, even tried calibrating the battery all with no luck. Any info would certainly be appreciated

My laptop wont charge so i brought a new charger but it still wont work.


It could be the battery... they tend to wear out over time. If you run the laptop with the charger plugged in, it works fine, right? It just won't hold the charge?

Laptop isn't working


have the charger tested, the original battery may have been flat, because of charger failure rather than battery failure. try an automotive connector if one is available

V5000 problems


what you need 2 do is either take the whole laptop back 2 where you brought it or even the battery cause you have a faulty battery.

most laptop batterys last for at least 5-10 years and after that no matter how much you charge them up they alwayz seem to be flat.

so my suggestion is get a new battery or take it back to the place that you brought it from and than get it replaced for free as long as you have your recept.
