Have a presario v2000, and the power pack will only charge for a day or so, then the pack burns out and wont work again....the battery takes a charge fine, but i have gone through 3 seperate power packs.....i was thinking the laptop might be causing the power pack to burn out, but ive never heard of this. any ideas?

start wit ha power reset, remove the battery, remove the ac adapter, hold the power button for 1 minute and then repalce the battery and ac adapter, if theres no go try it with just the ac adapter, sometimes the batteries short out. if all else fails its probably the mmobo and i suggest calling compaq for warranty support
i'd say first try a known working ac adapter and if that Working AC adapter works and the system detects the battery well, then it could be the ac. If not then try to borrow a working battery to get your final conclusion. if the working battery still doesnt work properly, then it could be the system motherboard. If battery and ac adapter (working) are not available, then check the BIOS and see if it really doesnt detect the battery. try flashing the BIOS and still if that fails, then replace the battery.
use ebay, same thing but cheaper in prices... i got my presario v2000 ac power charger for 24.50 with shipping and handling.... took 3 days and it arrived unless u want to do overnight shipping which is like an extra 12 bucks which is good too... WELL WORTH IT EBAY IS THE PLACE... i think his name is "honestworks" or something like that buy it from him he has a one year warranty if any defects occur...
