HP Laptop Help, I have a HP laptop - not sure of model but it's at least a couple of years old. I went away for the weekend and left it plugged in. When I returned, it wouldn't power up. I charged it over night and the battery is still dead. Any suggestions on next steps?

Unplug the adapter from laptop, then take battery out adn wait 5 to 10 secs, then reinsert battery and try turn it ON
if that doesn't work, take battery out and try power ON with adapter only.

I got a hp pavilion dv 2500 i assumed had a bad charger port because the light would not turn on when it was plugged in. so i went ahead and bougt a new component for it, but still no charge. any othe


How old is the battery. It may not be holding a charge because it is so old. Try holding down F12 during boot up to see if it offers you a battery recalibration option. If it does, follow the on screen instructions to the letter. Best of luck

My HP G72 laptop wont power on, even with a charged battery from another hp, The light wont come on when its plugged in.


Your motherboard has gone bad. The best thing to do is buy a new laptop. You can find a replacement motherboard online but after the cost of the part, shipping, and the pain of removing 100 screws, it just isn't worth it.

A couple weeks ago, after plugging my HP laptop back in after using it, I noticed that my battery did not start charging immediately. Since then, the power level in the battery has slowly been dropping...


Yes, you have come up with the right answer.

Most laptop batteries do well to last 1 year before they wear out. You have done very well to stretch out 3 years on this battery. Good work!

If you want some help finding a replacement battery, please reply with the full model number of the laptop and I'll track one down for you.

Thanks for using FixYa and Happy New Year!

3 year old HP laptop. First screen with diagonal


Hi:
I am not 100% sure, but you could have a problem with the onboard video on your laptop. If you hook up an external monitor to your laptop, and boot to the external screen, this will tell you if your laptop screen is ok, if the video displays the same on a external monitor. To get to the external display, some laptops require that you toggle to them, such as holding down the function key and hitting F8, but your model may differ.

Battery is not charging


How old is the battery? Most laptop batteries will only last for a couple of years under normal use.

Ebay have a couple of site that sell single keys and instructions on how to fit them

You may struggle to get one with the machine being so new but perhaps the keyboard has been fitted on other models

Your laptop's power adapter must be the problem, try borrow a power adapter power cord similar voltage rating and connector to your laptop's and test to see if it is the calprit.

There service manual, which you can download for free from hp's website has directions on how to replace the fan. Here is link to the manual (pg 161):
http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c00444244.pdf

Also, I would suggest purchasing one of those laptop cooling fans that set underneath the laptop and plug into the usb. They do a fantastic job of helping to keep the laptop cool and they are not too terribly expensive.
