COMPAQ V2000 WILL NOT POWER UP WITH DC/ADAPTER OR BATTERY
MY PRESARIO V 2000 WILL NOT POWER UP WITH AC ADAPTER OR BATTERY. THE AC ADAPTER HAS 18.5 VOLTS AT THE OUTPUT
The battery is not getting charged and its eventually empty now but if I try to plug the Power Cord in it doesn't charge. It's not the battery becuase its a new one and so we assume it's the AC JACK can someone help me!?

Hve u tried a differnt adaptor , the adaptor might be blown too ,try replacing the adaptor , also check for the power cord if it has any kinks in it which may be interrupting the power supply , since the adaptor 18.5 v 3.5 a is the most common of all hp adaptors u should find one to try .

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...
Your battery is dead. You need to get a new power adapter. The battery isn't charging. The AC adapter went south. If the laptop is under warranty, you can get one from Compaq. Or, what I would do is shop on the internet and order one. Whats the numbers on the ac adapter? I'll help you find one.
