Compaq presario v2000 wont charge

Hi, my laptop charger has been getting very temperamental - if it was plugged in and i moved the cable slightly, it would stop charging and run on the battery. This has eventually been getting worse, and I would have to put something under the cable, to hold it a the right angle, so that it would charge the laptop.

Now when I plug in the cable, it doesnt even charge! I have tried wiggling it and twisting it in every direction, but it wont chargfe and now I cant turn the laptop on... I have been using the original charger that initially came with the laptop when I brought it new in Jan 05.

How can I fix this? Do I need a new charger? or is it the actual battery?

Please help!

It has happened to me as well since i have the exact same model laptop. The problem is a loose cable or the wire inside is damaged. I just bought a new charger since buying one is cheaper than taking the risks that the repair might cause a short after using it for some time.

Why does my compaq presario v2000 battery always drain even while plugged in?


If the battery fully charges and lasts in normal use without the charger plugged into the laptop, then this clearly indicates a problem with the charge circuits in the computer, unfortunately this is built into the motherboard.

Try using a different power adapter (what plugs into the wall) with your laptop. If you find that it charges and powers on, then all need to buy is a new power adapter. If it still doesn't charge or power on then you may need the "DC Jack" repaired. You can usually have this repaired for less than a $100. try{for(var lastpass_iter=0; lastpass_iter

Won't turn on, but the charge icon blinks 3 times


It has enough juice in the battery to light up the lcd lights but not enough to turn it on. Could be the power supply. Consult a reputable service center and have it checked out. Good luck.

Receiving Charge will not turn on


Take out the battery and only have the ac adaptor hooked up to the laptop and then try to turn it on.

If that doesn't work, then the motherboard is faulty. Probably a short in the motherboard but the whole thing would need to be replaced.

Also make sure your using the correct adaptor as well.

Compaq Presario V2000 touchpad/battery charging problems


I noticed you were talking about over heating issues. Does the mouse issue happen when the computer is on for a period time?

I know with some laptops there is software for the "gadgets" on the mouse pad. If you have software related to it.. try reinstalling.

I am getting mixed thoughts of what you maybe talking about... please explain.
