Make sure the new A/C adaptor and battery are working correctly.then check the charging circuitry or power distribution in the laptop
This can be caused by:

1.The monitor is not connected properly.
2. Bad hardware

Verify that the monitor is properly connected in the back of the monitor as well as to the back of the computer.

If the connections are OK it means that monitor or the video card is probably damaged. To test which component is dameged connect a different monitor to your computer or connect your monitor to a different computer.

If the other monitor works on your computer it means that your monitor is bad and if your monitor works on another computer it means that you probably have a damaged video card.

Good evening Arapa, Before I went any further I?d make sure the new A/C adaptor and battery are working correctly. Over the years I?ve had many brand new or refurbish parts wind up not working. Also verify that they are the correct ones for your laptop. The next candidate is the charging circuitry or power distribution in the laptop. Since it involves major disassembly I don?t usually recommend this option to the typical user unless they have experience working with and handling electronics, a good mechanical aptitude and are willing to live with the results of damaging the laptop beyond economic repair. Most times a local factory authorized and trained tech can give you a good estimate of what it will cost and save you the cost of buying test parts you may not need.

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.

Compaq R3000

r u mention for battery light?if is it true,then the light is blinking because of your laptop want to make sure the power supply charge that battery.if it is in charging condition,the light on.but if the light goes off,that mean, the battery is already full.

But when u use adaptor without battery, the light will goes off because no charging session is in progress which has same behaviour with battery full(during battery full,no charging session occur)

My Compaq R3000 does not charge up

The problem might be the battery itself. Four years is a long time for rechargeables. Also, check if the error ocurs when the battery is not in the slot.

The power plug won't charge the battery which prevents the computer coming on

There was a recent class settlement agreed to by HP regarding these models. HP failed to notify a ton of its customers and I've contacted Scott Kamber regarding.. (We were consultants for the suit).. Weve repaired a ton of these and you are not alone. Did you buy the machine new and register w/HP? Just curious...

Battery won't charge

If the battery is not charging, then the charging circuit of the motherboard is bad.

Page 3-22 lists the spare part number for the motherboard. (4 versions depending on options)

Chapter 5 covers disassembly and reassembly

Compaq Presario R3000 series charging/powering problem

Your power jack on the laptop is probably what when bad. you can take it apart and try to install an new one or you can power the laptop through the side docking port. I wired up a custom connector to use with the ac adapter to make it connect to the to wide metal slots in the docking port.

Laptop won't stay on

it might as well be a internal problem related to power or loose contacts with RAM or the power chords internally.
Better to go to the technician in this case.
Your first Battery would have been fine too..
