Question about Compaq Computers & Internet

3 Answers

I have a compaq presario cq60, I was having problems with the battery and did a battery check, it said I need to replace it so I got another one from hp, I have also replaced the charger as that broke aswell so got another one from hp. So I came to charge the laptop and the battery light was flickering, I've turned it on and the charge icon on the screen is flickering from charging to not charging really click. I haven't got a clue what to do next. Please help!!!!

Sounds like you might have a short in the terminal where you connect your charger cord. You will have to take it to the shop so that they can take it apart and check it out for you.

It sounds like a loose connection between the charger and the battery/PSU. Have you tried moving the charger around to see if there is a loose wire or connection somewhere?

Are the battery and charger you purchased official Compaq replacements? Using third party or unofficial batteries and chargers is not recommended and can result in there problems.

    yes I have tried pushing it in slightly and wiggling it but it's still the same. And yes they are defiantly genuine ones for my model. I've tried taking the battery out and putting it back in but still the same

    Can you power the laptop on with the battery removed? If yes then there is no loose connection so you can rule that out. As dwai1967 suggested you may need to bring it into the shop to be looked at. Power supplies should never be opened or tampered with unless you are professionally trained as they can hold a lethal charge.
