Compaq presario M2000 power cord won't charge my laptop

I've had my laptop for a good 3 years and reccently after i got back from a trip. I had left my laptop at home and when i got back i used the laptop for a school assignments and when i tried to recharge the battery it won't work. At first i was able to charge the battery by messing with the power cord, but now it just doesn't want to charge the battery. Does this mean I need a new power cord for my laptop

Check that your power adapter is working fine it may be that the power cable is broken somewhere between the adapter and the laptop. You could try another charger / adapter.

Compaq M2000 turns on using charged laptop battery but doesn't charge or turn on when using power adaptor, with or without the laptop battery


1) The AC adapter should ALWAYS be plugged into the laptop FIRST, then plugged into AC power. If not, this could create a voltage spike.

2) Let's look at the DC Power Jack, for the Compaq Presario M2000 series of Notebook PC's,

http://www.notebookparts.com/products/description.php?II=9741

The DC Power Jack is mounted to a removable circuit board.
Enlarging the view of the jack, shows us there is an Inductor.

The small 'can' standing up on the power board. This chipset could have gone south. (Bad)

How to know? Replace it, or dig out your dual trace oscilloscope. See if the Inductor works.

Could also just be cracked solder joints, of the DC Power Jack, TO that small circuit board. Solution would be to resolder it/them.

[ I WOULD however, search for a BETTER price, than listed in the link above, IF available ]

DC Power Jack is in good shape, soldered tight to the motherboard, and ruled out as the problem?
(Since you know the AC adapter is good)

Then the problem would be the Inductor on that power board, or power correcting chipset.

What one is it? Dunno.
DO KNOW is has J leads on the bottom.
CAN give examples, and perhaps you can identify using them.

"battery doesn t charge how do I know if the power cord or the battery is bad on my Presario M2000


If the battery is over a year old then it could be dead.Anything over two years I would bet on it. Usually the power bricks are very reliable. To check it you just need to put a power meter on it and check the voltage against what is printed on the brick. It should be slightly higher.

Without a meter it is pretty hard to check. You should get some indication that it is plugged in. It may have a power light on the brick or the laptop that shows it on even if it wont charge.

BATTERY IS BAD. CHARGE CORD HEATS UP. REPLACED CORD AND CHARGER LAST YEAR


Compaq chargers get heated up a lot when charging. This is a common problem.
Based on the issues you mentioned, unfortunately you would need to get the battery changed.
Regarding the charge cord getting heated up, try keeping it on a concrete/cold surface to lessen the heat. Unfortunately nothing more can be done about it, and as i said compaq chargers do get heated up quickly.
Thanks.

Computer shut down


The sparking has probably caused your circuit protection inside the AC adapter to turn off the current.
Also, when you are plugging an adapter in,,do not have it plugged into the wall power outlet when plugging into the laptop,,,plug into the laptop first and then plug into the wall.
