It's the power connector on the motherboard, and the more you wiggle the connector on the cord to make contact, the more you damage the motherboard (from the sparks and heat).

There are a number of sites on the web that offer to fix that problem (it's probably the worst part of the design of any laptop) for prices ranging from around $75 to $200 - try this search to find someone you feel is competent:

    If there's no power getting from the power jack to the motherboard, nothing will work. But if there's power and the bluetooth doesn't come on, you have two problems. (An external bluetooth dongle is about $10, and fixing the switch woiuld probably cost a few times that, so it wouldn't pay to fix it.)

My compaq presario r3000 wont charge. its plugged in but when i unplug it it immediatly turns off. the battery life constantly says 0%. it wont drop from that or get any higher. in the bottom right hand...


Sounds like the battery, had similar problems.. if you purchase a new battery make sure you get the right kind there are two types, an 8 cell or 12 cell..

The fix for my pressario involved completely stripping it and soldering 3 pins on the power connector on the mainboard.. not difficult but no mean feat.. now works perfectly (with the inclusion of a 12cell battery)

My r3000 has a tempermental power supply. it


whatabout the lead that plugs into the laptop ? does the plug in the laptop move easily, with the lead in, Sounds like the actual plug in the laptop is breaking away, the solder around the connector. Sadly to fix that you will have to get it repaired for about £50 to £70, maybe more ?? please make sure the lead from power supply is not loose or a bad fitting.

Where is wireless connection switch on Compaq Presario R3000?


Well if u have the same exact one as myself.
The wireless button is on the front right near the corner. above it and on the corner is the wireless symbol. If its working it should be lit blue. push it and see if it lights up blue for a few seconds. You should get a wireless connection confirmation on the screen.

hope this helps you

I have experienced similar problems. I found that if the fans were REALLY dirty, the system would overheat and shut down with no warning.

No wireless connection with laptop Presario R3000 (anymore!)


If your volume buttons don't work either this should help. Place your laptop on a table and press down on the lower right of the computer(under the arrows near the microphone and headphone symbol) or clamp down on the battery compartment (center). The blue light on the corner should illuminate, if it's off press the network button while putting pressure(the indented one on the right front edge) you shoud hear a double ping sound. I put a thick felt pad between the battery and the computer andnow everthing works. I know it sounds really STUPID but it works.

GOOD LUCK

Richard.
