The adaptor supplies more voltage than is needed to charge your batteries and operate the PC so there is a circuit, often mounted on a small, separate board inside the unit that regulates voltage for the PC and monitors and regulates the charge current for the battery pack.

Testing the plug-in adaptor without a load (drawing current from it) is not a reliable way to test it since it could itself be defective and lose some or all of the 19 volts once required to deliver current.

You might try removing the battery pack to see if the PC will turn on without it.
The packs have thermal fuses internally that can fail preventing a charge to take place.

Charging battery compaq presario c700


If you can reach inside the computer and rub the battery contacts gently to remove the corrosion ,which is invisible , this will help greatly. Sometimes even a new battery will suffer the same. Clean the battery contacts also turn off the laptop and charge it fully do this on a regular basis. Say once every 2 months

I have an ASUS laptop which has been shutting down for the past 1 hour. It has little battery left so I have disconnected pwoer hoping it would go flat.


Asus WHAT laptop?
What is the model number? Bottom of laptop.

Two, is the laptop dirty inside?
If you have never had it cleaned, it is.

Three, "It has little battery left so I have disconnected power......."

Shouldn't have low battery power, if the thing is plugged in.

Four, have you tested the AC adapter's (Charger) output voltage?

Five, is the DC Power Jack in good condition?

[DC Power Jack (DC_IN), is the jack on the laptop that the AC adapter plugs into ]

Could be.........

A) The Battery is older than dirt........
("How old is that battery?
Lemme tell ya,.......that battery is so old that.........")

Battery needs replacing.

B) Power MOSFET's are going south for the winter, and didn't invite you, or the laptop along.

("Pssst..........let's go to the Bermuda's, but xnay on telling the laptop, or dlemaistre)

They control whether the Battery is to have a trickle charge, or full charge; OR, whether the laptop is to just run off of the AC power, and not the Battery.

(Actually the AC adapter {Charger} is a converter. Converts the AC electricity from the home, or business; into DC Voltage.
So it should be stated, ".......OR, whether the laptop is to just run off of DC power from the AC adapter)

Air is used to cool the hardware components inside the laptop.
The two hardware components that give off the most heat, is the Processor (CPU), and graphics chipset. (GPU)

When the Processor overheats it turns off. (BIOS turns it off)
This is a fail safe feature that is built-in.
Keeps the CPU (Processor) from burning up.

So the laptop could be turning off, because the Processor is turning off; due to the laptop is dirty inside.

The battery could be low on charge, because it is old; and not keeping a charge.

OR,
Power MOSFET's are bad, and battery is not being charged up.
Also no power TO motherboard of laptop, because power ends at the DC Power Jack on motherboard; and rest of motherboard isn't receiving power.

Using HP Pavilion dv6000 series, and Pavilion dv9000 series of Notebook PC's; to explain,

http://mayohardware.blogspot.com/2010/04/important-parts-on-dv6000-and-dv9000.html

So,.......
1) Is the laptop dirty inside?

2) Is the Battery more than 2 years old?

3) Does the AC adapter (Charger) prove to be good?
Putting out the required Voltage?

4) If the DC Power Jack on laptop, is the design that has a Center Pin; does the Center Pin move around, when you try to gently move it with a tool?
(BATTERY removed)

[If you do not have access to a multimeter, an economical unit can be purchased for around $5.
I have seen them on checkout aisle racks, at major discount stores.
Auto parts stores have them, but usually higher in cost ]

Compaq pressario f500 power supply not working while laptop is powered on, yet charges when off


Check that the power supply is the correct one for the laptop. It sounds as if the supply doesn't have enough power to supply the laptop (Watts)

I may not be understanding what you are stating, so bear with me;

1) The Wireless Modem antenna wires are up in the Display Assembly,

http://www.mundocorp.com/shopexd.asp?id=1160

In otherwords they should already be there.

2) The 802.11 Mini PCI Card, is a Wireless Module.
It goes in the Mini PCI Compartment, under the Mini PCI Compartment Cover, located on the bottom of the laptop.

It's made by Broadcom,

(Gateway 6002672 part number)

http://support.gateway.com/s/Mobile/NETWORK/Wireless/6002672/6002672mv.shtml

See at the Top right where it states Main, and has a white Side Arrow?
This terminal is where the Black wire (Lead) of the wireless antenna connects to.

The other terminal, AUX, is where the White wire connects to.

Here is the Service Manual, (PDF file form),

Page 13.

REMEMBER, remove ALL power. Remove the AC adapter (Charger), and Battery, before working on the laptop. Also follow Anti-Static Precautions.

did u check the charger itself...its important ...

if you have multimeter then unplug the charger from laptop and plug the mains from socket to th charger plug and check the output DC voltage..is it coming, if coming then is it constant or varing ...if varing then u have to check the charger inside by an expert...
if its ok then remove the battery of the laptop and plug the main to charger and charger to laptop and then check its performance by switching on laptop...if its work then battery issue....

Gateway W323-UI1 battery shows charge at 100% but then when unplugged from AC adapter for 10 mins or so it says "critical battery" and if not plugged back into AC adapter right away laptop powers off...


You will need to calibrate the battery. When you boot the laptop, it will say very quickly to enter Setup press F2 (or Delete key) or similar. Do that, you will enter the BIOS. Look for battery calibration and run it. Can take a few hours.

Definetly try a replacement battery first. If you take your battery to a batteries plus they might even be able to test it. If you give me the make and model of the laptop I could probably locate you the replacement part numbers and prices.
Thanks,
