Does the laptop power on and load the operating system when the AC adapter is connected without having a battery installed or having the laptop in the docking bay? If so, then the problem is either with the battery or the internal charging circuit. If the laptop is less than a year old, return it to HP for repair under warranty. If the laptop will not power up with the AC adapter, no (or dead) battery, and not docked, then the problem could be with the power connector on the left side of the laptop. If the power connector jack that the AC adapter plugs into is loose, then the jack will need to be resoldered or replaced. If you don't have experience disassembling laptops and soldering electronics, you should take it to a repair shop. If it is still under warranty, take it to HP. They have had problems with other laptops with loose power jacks causing them to offer repairs even after the warranty had expired. If the power jack is good but the laptop will not receive power from a known good AC adapter, then the most likely cause is a defective circuit on the motherboard. Hope this helps.

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.

When pluged up it say plunged in not charging


It could be that the battery is at it's full charge. Do you have the correct power adapter plugged into the laptop? Is the battery older than 2.5 to 3 years? Deplete the battery by unplugging the power adapter and letting the laptop use up the battery and shutdown. Then plug the adapter back in and power up the laptop. Does it say charging now?

sounds like the situation is with the AC adapter detection. try to restore your BIOS defaults and update BIOS if applicable. Test another AC adapter. If that fails, most likely, this is with the motherboard. You may either get a new board, or just continue to charge it using the docking station.

Hi,
Remove the battery from the portable and disconnect the Ac adapter. Press and Hold down the power button for 15 seconds.

Reconnect the Ac adapter only and power on the system. If the system is doing the same . The motherboard on the computer has gone bad.

Hi there
this is just a wild guess but i think that is you ac conector that is fry there is not fuses for that so the only option is to take it to a local repair guy an get it replace. depending where you are may run from $50 to $150 the repair since they have to take apart the laptop to change it the part is no more than $ 15 but labor is the costly here so maybe the docking station will be the best in your case .

Hp compaq 6720 laptop, wont charge battery, bought new battery have same problem. have tried several different chargers and they are all working, but not charging battery


If the notebook does not charge even after replacing it with new battery and checking with several chargers then it is laptop power jack issue.
You may need to replace it. However to confirm the issue is with power jack just remove the battery and try to power on the notebook only with AC adapter. If it does not then it is the power jack which is allowing the ac power to be charged.

If your notebook is in warranty then you can ship it to HP and if it is out of warranty then check the link below, you can purchase the power jack of the laptop from here.

Docking station fror compaq Evo n610c


docking station for my old compaq armada did not "charge seperately" but did supply power to the pc through docking connector and not through the normal ac input, cant say if they have their own power transformers or not, till i go home and take my old docking station apart. Will the computer not power up when plugged in, it normally will run off ac power even when battery is dead or removed.
