Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have a compac presario cq60, I've recently got a brand new charger and battery both from hp as they both needed replacing. I've put the new battery in and plugged the charger in but I noticed that the light on the laptop next to where the charger plugs in, is flickering so I turned it on and the battery icon on screen keeps flickin from charging to not charging really quickly. I really don't know what to do next. Thankyou

First thing to check is that the battery is inserted properly. Take the battery out, make sure there's nothing on the contacts, and then put it back in. The problem could also be that the charging jack on your laptop is loose. If you hold the charging cable plug in the laptop with a little (not a lot) force, or push it a little to the front or back, does it stay charging? If it does then the jack is loose. Your temporary fix is to hold it the way you did while testing to see if it was the problem. Be aware, this fix is strictly temporary, eventually the jack will get loose enough and not make contact at all. Consider calling Compaq customer service and checking to see if it's covered by warranty.

Persario/HP charger scam


Remove the battery before you plug in the charger/adapter and see what it will do. It can't recognize a battery mode if there is no battery. Maybe the charger you are using is not appropriate: different voltage, wrong polarity, the tip is not in contact with the plug terminals, or the circuit is not closed to allow the passage of current.
Rocketfish, Targus , and a few others, manufacture universal chargers that work with may laptop makes and models.

The first thing to do is check that the charger is putting out the correct voltage, which should be ~18 volt. Then try to start it without the battery.
If your voltage is OK and the battery out makes no difference, then I would suspect that you have a motherboard problem that must be fixed. If the computer starts up if you wiggle the DC plug where it goes into the computer, then it's the DC jack that is looks and must be re-soldered.
