    thks for your help

    the battery will not charge in the dell d610

    the problem component ( chip) has been isolated

    the problem now is that it does not have any SPECIFIC markings as to what it is

    i believe that it is a MOSFET but the only markings are 4805

    it is an 8 pin surface mount beside the battery--need to know the generic name or compatible part and / manufacurer number

    its generic values also may help

    thks again

    You have tried calibrating the battery?

    Still, if you feel that you are capable of removing this and testing surrounding components that may have cascaded I suggest you ask the following expert on our site, who may or may not be able to help you on this specific problem. He is a board troubleshooter and repair tech in Australia, not just a board puller. He is more than capable of assisting you in the part or parts and where to buy despite his location. Just remember the time/day difference.

    You may say I referred you thou its not important.

Your best bet is to buy a parts laptop form ebay and canibalize the part you need. Dell is very good at keeping its parts abit esoteric, leaving you no option but to part out another laptop.

I also have a Dell 600 series and I like it for what it does. When I have to face this problem I'll be getting a parts board or entire laptop. They aren't expensive when you think about it.

I'll check my wholesaler trade pub and see it there isn't a company I can refer you to. If you say no don't bother, say so before I hunt through the listings, OK?

Take the chip out and try Radio Shack, they have a large selection of various computer chips, circuits,etc... If they don't have it in stock they have many electronics catalogs and should be able to order it for you. Your other option is contacting Dell, or getting a perts board off Ebay.

    This chip is the power management chip. That's all I know about it, I can't tell you the manufacturer, model, or part number. I chatted a bit with a Dell tech I use, but he couldn't tell me anything on the chip other than replace the board or send it to them for repair. I have replaced these chips before from dead boards that I picked up at auction or Ebay. I'd send you a chip, but I'm completely out. I've used all of them from the boards I have here. My last customer with this problem I replaced the entire board.

HP dv6000 laptop not charging problem, adapter, battery and power jack looks like it works fine

If your battery, charger, and DC Jack are ok, then the most common problem is the surface mount transistors on your HP's main board called MOSFET's. They are small 30V N channel 8 pin components soldered to the main board. The boards also have transistor circuits which switch back and forth between a charging and discharging state. However these rarely ever fail. The MOSFETS fail because of the thermal loads which they must endure. Although some notebooks (like the Gateway I'm currently on) have a DC jack which serves dual purpose of supplying DC 19V AND connecting/disconnecting charging circuit. However your HP dv6K does not.
However it's worth mentioning that these models have had all sorts of problems...most notably poor thermal design to begin with that usually creates solder connection problems with the main chipset especially on AMD models. Good luck.. :)

Dv6500 new dc adapter, battery and dc jack board, doesn't seem to responding to ac power at all only battery

What is the pattern of the flashing lights?

Since You have replaced the Power Cord, Battery and DC Power Jack, I think your problem is either the Memory or the Video Card. I do recall that the DV6000 series of hp laptops had the Nvidia Graphics (Video) Card that was a manufacturing defect and documenting all over the internet. If you get nothing to post on the lcd screen then you probably have the bad video card that needs to be reflowed.

Take a look at HP's site for a explanation of the blink codes by the link below.

When you plug in the power cord is there any lights whatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of the power cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning, lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear the DvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for a second or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, but the screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with the laptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issue when you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous. Most times the problem is with the memory or Video Card. Count the Blinking Lights or Beeps and take note of their pattern (1 Long or 1 Long followed by 2 Short).

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoever when you press the power button. And if that's true maybe you was operating off the battery the last time you had it on and since the power cord is bad, it was not charging the battery so the battery is drained and the power cord is bad.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove the Battery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the battery out) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can put the battery back in and let it charge.

Maybe your DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugs into the computer is bad. Take an ink pen and push the tip inside the jack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have to take the laptop apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto the motherboard, so you will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.

Maybe your memory is bad or the memory slot is bad.

Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of the memory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x on it with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the next memory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set it aside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If it boots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and put it into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

Its not charging, may be one chip needs to be changed a pc tech man

A) So you've checked out that the AC adapter (Charger) is okay?

1) Putting out 19 Volts DC?
2) There is no problem with the cable from the AC adapter to the laptop, or power cord cable?
Wiggling the cable's while testing for Voltage shows no intermittent reading?

B) DC Power Jack on laptop (DC IN) is okay?
Positive center pin doesn't wiggle around, outside Negative shell of power jack doesn't move?
No perceptible movement?

C) What you are referring to is a sensor chip.
{Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit}

It is mounted to the motherboard in a BGA surface mount.

BGA surface mount;

Remember the old Intel Pentium 4 processors?
The processor has the pins, and the processor socket has the socket holes?

With a BGA surface mount there are no pins on the chipset.
Solder Balls take the place of the pins.

There are no socket holes. There are matching Copper Pads.

The chipset is set into place so that the Solder Balls line up with the Copper Pads.
Then a specified temperature of heat, and a specified time, is applied, and the solder balls melt, which solders the chipset to the copper pads. (Thereby soldering it to the motherboard)

Takes a BGA Reflow machine to replace the chipset, or a tech with a really steady hand, and EXCELLENT soldering/de-soldering skills.

Finding a replacement chipset is going to be tough. Not impossible perhaps, but tough.

In this instance it is more logical, albeit not economically feasible, to just replace the motherboard.

The above is just from a quick search. You may find a better price.

The laptop comes on but no pitchure on the screen

1) Use a flashlight, and shine it at the LCD screen of the Acer laptop at various angles.
Do you see faint images?

2) Laptop off you can also attach a VGA monitor (CRT. Looks like a small TV), to the VGA connector on the back of the laptop. Laptop on, press, and hold down on the Fn key, and press the Function key which toggles the graphics over to an external monitor. (Usually there is a icon on the key for this, on the keyboard)

Graphics present on external monitor?

If so you have a problem with the Inverter. (Screen Inverter)

An LCD screen cannot produce enough light by itself. It needs an additional light source.
A Backlight is the additional light source.

A Backlight is a CCFL.
Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp.
Much like the Fluorescent lighting used in homes, and businesses, but on a MUCH smaller scale.
(Average Backlight size is half the thickness of a No.2 pencil, and 3 to 4 inches long)

An Inverter is used to convert the electricity coming from the laptop for the LCD screen, and the Backlight.

90 Percent of the time the fault is the Inverter.

The Inverter is located inside the Display Assembly.
[Display Assembly:
1) Top cover of laptop.

2) Display Bezel in the front of the LCD screen, and surrounds the outer front edge of the LCD screen. {Looks like a picture frame}

3) LCD screen

4) Web camera if this model has one.

5) Wireless Antenna

6) Inverter

7) Backlight

8) LCD screen metal frame, and hinges

9) Various screws ]

With the Display bezel removed the Inverter is located at the bottom middle, below the LCD screen.

{If I knew the Model Name, and Model Number of your Acer laptop I MAY be able to post a link to a free Service Manual for it}

If no faint images are seen, and/or an external monitor shows no graphics, there is a problem with the graphics chip on the motherboard.

Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

The graphics chip is mounted to the laptop motherboard via a BGA surface mount.

BGA surface mount:
To explain let me compare the older style of mounting Processors.

The older Processors have pins sticking out of the bottom. These pins lined up with socket holes in the Processor socket.

The Ball Grid Array type of surface mount has no pins on the chip. (In this case a graphics chip)
There are solder balls in place of the pins.

The area where the chip mounts to on the motherboard has copper pads.
The chip is lined up with the solder balls matching the copper pads.
Then heat is applied which melts the solder balls, and solders the chip to the copper pads.

If there is a poor cooling system for the graphics chip, the chip overheats, and the BGA surface mount becomes loosened.
The solder connections melt partially.
This creates a poor contact surface for the graphics chip to the motherboard, resulting in no graphics being shown on the LCD screen.

I await your findings with the flashlight, and/or external monitor. Would also like the Model Name, and Model Number. (Bottom of laptop)

I have a dv9310us that powers up with no video then shuts off and starts a reboot over and over with no boot screen the screen stays black/blank, what would cause that?

The graphics chip.

The HP Pavilion dv9310us is one of the Pavilion dv9000 series of Notebook PC's.

The dv2000, dv6000, and dv9000 series of HP Pavilion Notebook PC's, all have an inherent problem they share.
They have a poor cooling design for the Processor and the graphics chip.

A Chip or Chipset is an Integrated Circuit. Chip and Chipset are slang terms.

A graphics chip is attached to a small circuit board. (PCB) The board itself is attached to the motherboard via a surface mount type of technology.

BGA. Ball Grid Array.

To explain this type of mounting I will use an older Processor for an example.
The older Processors used pins on the bottom of them. These pins lined up with matching socket holes in the processor socket.

[Newer Processors have the socket holes, while the processor socket has the pins]

On the BGA type of surface mount, there are no pins protruding from the bottom of the graphics chip's circuit board.
There are solder balls.

On the motherboard there are matching copper pads.
The graphics chip is set in place on the motherboard so that the solder balls line up with the copper pads, then heat is applied, and the solder balls melt.

This action solders the graphics chip directly to the motherboard.
(Integrated Graphics. Also known as OnBoard Graphics. ON the motherBOARD)

With the poor cooling design of the above mentioned Pavilion DV series, the graphics chip overheats, and the solder connections begin to unsolder.
This makes a poor connection between the graphics chip, and the motherboard.

Hence the problem you are having.

Motherboard resistors RV2 and RV3

RV1, RV2, and RV3 are capacitors. They're actually dark green in color because they're made primarily for automotive applications. If you remove one and measure it with a capacitance meter you can find the value. On a 600M/D600 I believe they're 150pF, but on other boards they may be 100pF. Digikey part numbers for them are 490-4962-1-ND for the 100pF, or 490-4767-1-ND for the 150pF. Good luck!

Dell d610--battery will not charge

I had the same problem on D610, it was not charging the battery and also the CPU speed was showing only the minimum 800Mhz though maximum was 2Ghz. I updated the bios (though it had the newest version) and ran intel chipset driver for D610. Viola! it set the speed to 2Ghz and the battery started charging. Was it a miracle or a solution I dont know!!!
