It doesnt charge, i cant tell if its the charger or the laptop itself. it seems like something is loose inside the computer but i dont know

If you have a multi-meter, you can find out if the charger is giving voltage. On the "block" portion of the charger, it should have the output voltage (i.e., Output: 15VDC 1.3A). Using the multi-meter, look to see if you are getting 15V DC power

If you are getting power, the problem is with your main board. Also, inspect where the connector goes into the back of the unit...does the connector go in loosely? If so, it's likely the mainboard.

The piece you plug charger into is loose and I am having problems charging on my laptopI have to wiggle it around. My charger and battery are good. Please dont tell me it cant be fixed

If you're having to wriggle it around, the most likely cause is that the cable near the laptop plug is broken.  It'll only work if you have the wire in the right position because it's only then that the broken cable touches and passes current.

1) The really cheap way: Buy an identical laptop power connector from an electrical shop; chop off the last 6 inches of cable before the laptop and solder the new plug on

2) Get another charger from eBay- they're cheap enough these days.

Yes it is the dc socket that you will use to charge your battery . It charges right on the camcorder itself with your ac adaptor . make sure the camcorder is in off postion for it to charge.

Compaq HP 6715s Laptop not charging!

If you can determine that it is not the battery just going bad, then most likely it is a problem with the motherboard. I actually have this same problem, and have not been able to find a quick fix.

HP has a battery tester tool. If you are able to use this, then you are one step ahead of where my HP laptop is. I tried running this and it insisted that I did not have a battery installed, or that it was dead. If you have this same problem, then it looks like it might be time for a new motherboard.

In anycase, it might also be worth the time to try draining the battery completely and attempting to charge it back up. According to a few other sources, the laptop can sometimes get confused and think that a full battery is calibrated to be a low battery.

Key no. missing

Best way to check and see what your hex key is to connect to your router is to login to the router itself. If you've never done this go to internet explorer type in the adress bar It will prompt for a username and password if you never set one up it is probably admin (user) password (pass). Once in go to advanced wireless settings tab and write down the key.

Hope this helps!

Password issue

I think I can fix it. Please e-mail if you still cannot access it.

I have some expensive software that I use in repairing systems.(I have 35 years experience working on PC's).

I happen to be working on a 5715Z notebook system right now.

I have an "A+" Industry Certification which is a very difficult examination one must pass to be certified.

I am a certified public school teacher in vocational trades, with my specialty being Microcomputer Repair. I always work for minimal donations just to replenish supplies and to defray the cost of utilities such as buying this pricey software. Most shops I know charge $60-$75 / hr. but my typical donations are only about 1/3 of that cost. If we were in close proximity to each other, I would be glad to fix it.
If you know anyone who is very familiar with Linux, you can also do the following:
Boot the system with a Ubuntu Linux Boot Cd and then you can access your files using the File Manger utilities. Download all your data to a Flash drive and if necessary, move the data to a different computer where you can burn the data to a CD / DVD.
Then install your original Windows Disc and reload the system.
I hope that helps you.....if you need additional info, please send e-mail.

Laptop Power

Not the charger. It is either the battery or the charge circuit in the laptop. Most are on the mother boards but some have a changable dc to dc inverter board
