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.

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.

Princeton VL173 monitor (12V 4A) only stays on momentarily


Sounds as if you may be dealing with a power supply (AC Adapater) issue. I had one go out on my Princeton VL173. I wasn't sure whether it was the PS or the display that went back. One day it just went black.

I had a hard time trying to find a replacement power supply. Out of desperation I used an old AC adapter (power supply) from an old HP printer that died. It had the same plug, and the power output profile was very nearly identical.Oddly enough, it worked! It has been trouble free for many months now. And it fit within my budget. (free!)

If the power output profile on the HP adapter was not so very close -- almost identical -- I'm not sure I would have done it. Also, it may be that the two power supplies are not intended to be interchanged. But I can tell you that from my experience it has worked out great so far, and it has been a lot of daily use for a long time.

I hope this helps.

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

Power Supply Port Burnout


1) You need to replace the DC Power Jack. This is the port on the laptop where the AC adapter (Charger) plugs in. {Power port}

Most so called repair shops won't touch this. (Notice I stated so called) They will want to replace the entire motherboard. {Geeks are us}

A bona fide computer repair tech can replace the DC Power Jack. Cost of jack? Around $10. Repair bill? From $50 to $125.

[Entire laptop needs to be disassembled, down to the bare motherboard in the tech's hand. Precise de-soldering, and soldering skills, are needed for the DC Power Jack replacement. Reassemble laptop.

This gives you an idea of what is involved,

[Older HP Pavilion DV6500 through DV6800 models]

DC Power Jack replacement,

2) Replace the AC adapter. If the AC adapter has a separate cable from the power unit, to the laptop, then by all means just replace it. May be more of a headache, then just buying a universal AC adapter.

Barring none of the above is a feasible approach for you, and you wish to save the information on the harddrive, of both your laptop, and your brother's, I would suggest an economical external enclosure.

Remove the harddrive, and install it in the external enclosure. The enclosure has a USB cable, and is plugged into any available USB port on a separate computer.
(Desktop?)

The HP Pavilion ZE5000 series of laptops, (Business Notebook's), use an IDE (PATA) harddrive.
It is 2.5 inches across in width.
(Desktop harddrives are 3 and 1/2 inches across in width)

This is one example of a 2.5 IDE (PATA) external enclosure,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3169580&CatId=2782

To remove the harddrive, I'll need to know the exact Product Number.
(P/N)
This is on the bottom of the laptop in a white Service Tag.
(DO NOT give out the Serial Number. S/N)

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.
