Question about Computers & Internet
This seems to be a common problem for this model. Some have reported a loose (or dry) solder connection on the mother board where the power socket is attached. Does it seem to work if you push the plug in harder, even for a second? . You should read this thread... http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/50946-2-compaq-presario-r3000-power-cord-issue It may not be your particular issue, but there is a likelyhood that it is. If you are not handy with delicate work, or a solder iron, I suggest a laptop repair shop. Maybe copy or print a part of the thread to clearly indicate what you want. Good luck
