HP Mini 2140 "Plugged in, charging" but not charging


Hello jorel, most likely its a failure of the system board particularly the charging section, a broken pin or a loose terminal. work will be internal, suggest you do away with the battery. its better to operate it at home, or bring the charger with you. Maybe its time to get a new one.

It wont charge my netbook


Hello,

Is your ac adapter or charger detected?

If YES, and it doesn't charge the battery, but it turns ON the laptop it means that the battery is the one not holding a charge.

If NO. Try to change the power cord that goes to the wall (that part is detachable) with good known power cord. If it does the same then definitely there's a problem with the ac adapter.

If the computer powers ON, both ac adapter and battery are detected but no display, then the problem is the system board.

Hope it works.

I bought new universal adapter for asus laptop and it charges batery just when laptop is turned off


Problem description: The battery charges only when the laptop turned off. The battery charge LED lights up as normal and the battery gets charged to 100% while the laptop is off.
When the laptop is turned on, the battery charge LED goes off even if the adapter is still plugged in.
Possible cause: 1. AC power adapter failure.
2. Battery failure.
3. Broken/loose power jack.
4. Motherboard failure.
Possible troubleshooting steps and repair solution: 1. This problem could be related to a faulty AC power adapter. It's possible that the AC adapter doesn't provide enough power when plugged into the laptop. To find out if this is your problem, you'll have to test the laptop with another working adapter.Replace the adapter if needed.
2. There is a slight chance that you have bad battery. Test the laptop with a know good battery and replace the faulty one if needed.
3. The battery charge problem could be related to the power jack. Maybe the jack is broken or not making good contact with the motherboard. It is necessary to remove the motherboard and take a closer look at the power jack. Resolder or replace the jack if needed.
4. If the power jack is in a good working shape and new power adapter with battery do not fix the problem, most likely you have a faulty motherboard. Replace the motherboard if needed.

Since you were able to post this, you could also find the number for HP, which is 800-HP-INVENT.

If you take the battery out, will it run on AC power?

Generally, HP computers are under warranty for a year, so it should still be covered. Call them, and they will walk you through some things to make sure they fix it right the first time.

HP Compaq laptop won't charge/power from AC due to blown fuse


Hi there,

There's plenty of causes why your laptop would not power up from the AC adapter and won't charge the battery. Here are some possible causes and solutions to this problem:

Number one, if it's on battery power, the battery is dead or the battery is bad and number two the AC adapter could be bad. Let's roll out number one.

1. Take out the battery, remove main supply, hold power button down for 30 seconds. This will drain the charges in your

battery. Put only power supply in, do not put battery in, turn laptop on, put the battery in.

2. If the solution in no.1 doesn't solve the problem, pull the battery out, keep the battery out of the laptop for this test.

Take your AC adapter and check the voltage with a voltmeter. What you want to test for is voltage. Put the meter at 20

volts DC and take the tip, the power jack tip of your AC power adapter. You hold the black, (the negative part) of your

voltmeter on the outside of the power jack tip of your AC adapter and you put the red (the positive part) of your voltmeter

in the hole in the inside of the power jack tip of your AC adapter. Be very careful not to touch the red and the black part of

your multimeter and the power jack tips of your AC adapter together, otherwise it will create a short circuit.

After doing these procedures, if your AC adapter is good it will output a voltage which ranges from 18 to 19V DC on your

voltmeter, depending on the voltage that puts out on your AC power adapter. If your voltmeter doesn't show any voltage,

probably your AC power adapter is bad or damaged. But if your voltmeter shows up voltage, then we have to go to the

next possible cause why your laptop won't power on.

3. The dc jack on your laptop might be bad, if the dc jack on your laptop is bad or not making a connection to the

motherboard then it look the battery is bad as well, because the battery is now not holding a charge or even taking a

charge. Also, even if your AC power adapter is good and when you insert it to the dc jack in your laptop it could not power

up the laptop because the dc jack is not making a connection to your laptop motherboard in other words the dc jack might

got loose, that's why it's not making any connection to the motherboard. The only way to solve this is that you have to

disassemble your laptop, and take the laptop motherboard out and look where the dc jack is connected. After you found it,
take a file tool and file off a spot on the motherboard where you can reattach the power jack and use a wire to reattach

the power jack to the motherboard.

Hope you find this answer helpful. God bless.

Hi,

1st option
If you get this message that "Plugging, Not charging", don't worry. it may be cause inconvenient removing your battery, well:
1- remove your battery
2- directly connect AC adapter
3- restart or on your laptop
4- after loading windows, put the battery

if it not work, you must flash your BIOS or upgrade to new version can find from your manufacturer company website.



2nd option
Take battery out and use pencil erases to gently clean the contacts. Also clean contacts on laptop battery box.
Sometimes the contacts oxidize.
Then put back in and see if it charges.

I had a GPU issue so i searched in google to find a solution and i found a solution it was needs to open the laptop , the motherboard the GPU problem solved now but there's a new problem that i didn't have...


Hello,

I would check to make sure the AC adaptor connection on the motherboard was not damaged when you opened the pc. ( I have done that a few times.) I'm uncertain of what you have done to solve the problem. Since you have the new battery, again try to charge the battery. when it show the charge is complete, let the pc run until it goes off, when it does, keep powering your pc on until it will no longer power on. (You want to make sure the battery is completely drainned.) Once complete, try plugging the AC to your pc and monitor the charge. You may need to let the pc charge for at least 2 hours before powering the pc on.

Good Luck
