Question about Compaq Presario M2000 Notebook

Compaq Presario M2000

Hello! I just wanted to ask if anyone knows of any problems with the above laptop. I have had this laptop for 2 years and one day whilst working on it, its suddenly switched itself off, never to turn on again.
The fan was not blocked so to say that it overheated, isnt really a possibility. There have never been any significant problems whilst in use. I thought maybe that it was a power problem but have since tested other power packs and still nothing happens. I dont want to fork out hundreds to get the problem fixed as i have now bought another laptop. I just want it working again so that i can sell it on.
Any ideas? Thanks Rebecca

The connector that the power cord plugs into the rear of the laptop may have a loose or bad wire . (This would be internal and you couldn't fix it.)

Since you lost power, you can't check to see if it works under battery since you can't charge the battery with out the power!

Try putting pressure or wriggling the input rear power connector while plugged in. You will have to hold it to one position, try switching it on, etc.. Sometimes it will briefly start up as long as you hold it in that position. It is not really a "self fix " type of problem and will usually take a Technician to repair if it is the power.

If there are no lights at all, then the problem is with the power management system on the motherboard. This will require motherboard replacement in order to fix it. If there are lights, it could still be the power management system, but it could also be a bad battery or failed memory chip. If you have lights, then remove the battery and try starting with the power supply only. Still nothing, then remove the memory and try each chip one at a time in each slot. If it's still not working, then it will be the power management system. This is a common problem in several makes of laptops, as the machine ages. Also, keep in mind that just because the fan wasn't blocked externally, doesn't mean that there isn't a dust/dirt build up around the fan and in the heat sink that could cause the machine to overheat.

Compaq M2000 turns on using charged laptop battery but doesn't charge or turn on when using power adaptor, with or without the laptop battery


1) The AC adapter should ALWAYS be plugged into the laptop FIRST, then plugged into AC power. If not, this could create a voltage spike.

2) Let's look at the DC Power Jack, for the Compaq Presario M2000 series of Notebook PC's,

http://www.notebookparts.com/products/description.php?II=9741

The DC Power Jack is mounted to a removable circuit board.
Enlarging the view of the jack, shows us there is an Inductor.

The small 'can' standing up on the power board. This chipset could have gone south. (Bad)

How to know? Replace it, or dig out your dual trace oscilloscope. See if the Inductor works.

Could also just be cracked solder joints, of the DC Power Jack, TO that small circuit board. Solution would be to resolder it/them.

[ I WOULD however, search for a BETTER price, than listed in the link above, IF available ]

DC Power Jack is in good shape, soldered tight to the motherboard, and ruled out as the problem?
(Since you know the AC adapter is good)

Then the problem would be the Inductor on that power board, or power correcting chipset.

What one is it? Dunno.
DO KNOW is has J leads on the bottom.
CAN give examples, and perhaps you can identify using them.

Two vertical lines on my compaq presario (M2000)


Hello,

Try changing your screen desktop resolution to a different value. If you still have verticle lines, then try changing the color depth from 32bit to 24 or 16. If the problem remains your display adapter has completely failed. It has failed to compute column row addressing math.

Naturally, you would want to find and install the latest drivers for your display adapter with the hope that the failure is in the software driving the display adapter and not an onboard chip. If updating your drivers fails to resolve the issue you need to have service performed on your laptop. Most laptops have the display adapter soldered on the main circuit board and many shops are capable of replacing this chip set.

Yet, get a quote first as the cost might cause you to consider an upgrade into a laptop that has a display adapter that is Direct X 9c or Direct X 10 ready as that will run most of the new game titles coming out this year.

Let me know if you have any further need of assistance as you run through the above troubleshooting routine.

I do hope this has fixed ya!

good!.

this means your computer is candidate for PRODUCT SAFETY CAPTURE. US gov requires all manufacturers to capture a product for safety reasons. call compaq and tell them that warranty is out, but computer has safety issues. its too hot to touch or had smoke come out of it. they should be able to give you a new computer. hehehehe! :)
