Compaq Presario X6000 PC Notebook power connector gone bad

Hello to all, i have a Compaq Presario X6000 PC Notebook and i am on my second power pac connector i have always had to wiggle it in order for it to make the connection and stay on A/C power.
Now it is not making the connection at all and it has shutt completly down. Battery is dead and no way to charge it.
a local computer guy told me that the Power Connector (inside the notebook) is most likely damaged and needs replacing.
Question: 1) is this a common problem
2) if so is there a recall on them
3) where do i go for repairs
i live near Detroit in Michigan

Thank you in advance.
Carlos

    Thank you for your help Ravege, it seems that you are correct about this being a problem with laptops.

    a co-worker suggested a docking station instead of fixing the Power Connector, as an inexpensive way around this fix. Is this something you think is reasonable?



    i appreciate your input

    thanks again,

    Carlos

Welcome to FIXYA


a common problem for all laptops when you plug in and remove it alot there is not recall on any laptop i know of for this problem and your repair man is right you will need to take it in and have it repaired ...as for where no clue i do know if you call the company to have them fix it they will but will cost you and might take a few weeks to get it back


hope this helped out have a good day :)

    a docking station is a good idea but i personaly like having my computer 100% not rely on the docking station but if this is what you would lik ethen it is a quick and easy fix yes although becareful what one you buy because some you need that plug for the docking station to plug in to and with out the plug working will make the docking station worthless to

    just a heads up





    have a good day hope i helped you out :)

common problem,power cord gets pulled on accidently,causes plug inside computer to pull loose from the motherboard.will need to disassemble,then usually just touching the connections with a soldering iron to remelt them is enough to fix it,leave this to qualified tech.or if under warranty then send for repair hope this helps ,aloha from maui todd0708

Laptop screen turns white


You can put your laptop on top of a icepack, cause your Graphics card is probably getting to hot. Thats why your screen turns white(probably only when gaming).
It is likely one of your fans is broken

Compaq Presario Laptop powers on but turns off in less than a second


Before I can help you ,I need the model number or the "service tag" number off the bottom of the computer.
Whenever you ask a tech question you must always begin with a model number / part number,etc. HP makes hundreds of different model Presario Laptops and each has it's own quirks. Only with a model number can an accurate diagnoses be made.

Boot problems


When you boot up your notebook, keep pressing F8; this will take you into safe mode. Look down the list for 'LAST KNOWN GOOD CONFIGURATION', and highlight and press enter. You notebook will then re-boot and hopefully start as normal, if not come back to this post.
