DC-DC board or motherboard. does it boot up from a charged battery (like from another laptop)?

if it works on battery power then i'd look to replace the DC-DC board (its a little board inside the laptop that holds the power jack and a few power-related components)

if it continues to beep even when only on a battery then you should look into a replacement motherboard. and if you have a Compaq V2000, i'd look into a "parts/repair" laptop from eBay or something because that will cost less then just a motherboard.

also the DC-DC board may be built into the motherboard. in that case there is none and the motherboard is the thing you want to replace.

Why isn't my laptop charging?


Remove the battery and let the computer sit for about 5 minutes. Replace battery and plug in AC cord. Try to start computer. If the computer will not turn on, then chances are that your battery is fully uncharged. Check to ensure that the AC charger is working properly (voltage test with multimeter). If the AC charger is not working, you need to replace it. The laptop should work without a charged battery if the AC adapter is functioning properly.

My hp mini 1000 will not turn on. When I plug it in the light on the side will not say it is charging. It will not charge.


Hi,

Here are some steps that can help you resolve the issue.

First, try removing the ac adapater and the battery and press and hold the power button for about 10-15 secs to remove the flea power. Then try to deattached the power cable and the power brick and attach it again properly, plug it to the computer without the battery and try to turn on the computer. If still the same problem try a good known power socket, if your using power strip try to plug it directly to the wall socket. If nothing works, try a good known ac adapter, or try you ac adapter to a good known working computer. If a good known ac adapter didnt work, contact HP as this is a power supply issue on the computer (power supply are mostly attached to motherboard for portables) contact HP to check your warranty and have it serviced. If the good known ac adapter works, contact HP to check the warranty and have the AC adapater replace or simply replace the ac adapter.

I hope this will be able to help you.

Thank you for choosing Fixya.

Something went pop and them the power went out and won't power back on?


Most probably a capacitor exploded either in the AC adapter or on the laptop's motherboard. In order to find out where the damage exactly happened, you can either test your AC adapter with another similar laptop, or test a new AC adapter with your laptop. Alternatively, you can test the output voltage from your AC adapter using a voltmeter.
If the AC adapter turns out to be working properly, then the damage happened on the motherboard. You will need to disassemble the laptop to get access to the motherboard & inspect it. The exploded capacitor could be replaced with a new one to fix the problem.

Hi forum, I have been using Compaq N610c notebook and was working fine but was not power ON . on AC adapter but it was working on Battery. From last day, the battery become zero showing battery indicator...


It's possible that the AC adapter "died", and then your computer ran on battery-power until the battery went to 0%.

Or, the socket on the laptop where the AC adapter connects could have broken, or become disconnected from the motherboard, such that the power from the AC adapter was not being accepted, meaning that your computer was running on battery-power.

Take the AC adapter and the computer to a qualified technician, who can test that the AC adapter is working fine, and can disassemble the laptop, to inspect that socket where it connects.

My HP laptop will not turn on.One day I was using it and everything was normal, after a while I turned it off and the next day when I went to turn it on again it did not turn on. No lights, no screen, no...


Remove the battery and the ac adapter the memory as well.Press and hold the power button down for twenty seconds.Once done put the battery in and the power in,no memory.If it beeps with the memory out the memory might be bad what the beeping signifies is the motherbord is good.Unfortunatly if you have no power lights the motherboard is bad.
good luck

HP pavillion dv1000 won't charge


Try using your laptop without the battery and just using your power supply (new universal or your old one).
If your laptop works on just mains power it means your battery is causing the problem, which is not unusual.

Doesn't start up


remove the primary battery and plug the computer into an AC outlet using the AC adapter. If the computer starts up, one of the batteries need to be replaced. If the battery light on the of the comoputer is blinking, the battery has reached a low batery level, which may not allow the computer to start up. Plug the computer into an AC outlet using the AC adapter to start the computer and allow the battery to charge.
