Question about HP Compaq Presario V2000 Notebook
I was having problems with the laptop switching from battery power to outlet power, for about a week. It would be plugged in but anytime I even just slightly moved it would switch. I figured I had problems with my cord so I bought a new one. It just arrived today, I plugged it in and powered up the laptop (which was completly dead) it started right up, no problems. But now it's doing to same exact thing. Right now its on the floor next to me, i'm not even moving it and its still switching back and forth. I don't know what the problem is, but as I use the computer its super important I get it fixed!! I would reeeeeeeeallly appreciate any help anyone could offer. Thanks in advance, Priscilla
Sounds like a power pin issue. Most laptop power pins are poorly designed and poorly constructed. Doesn't take much tugging or pulling to break them loose inside and cause problems. The part is only $ 5-10 but the labor to replace the part is $ 100-250 depending on who does the work.
Once you get it fixed you need one of these. . . In fact EVERY laptop needs one of these. . .

It sounds like a faulty ac power jack connector(where you plug ac adapter in), it may be that it requires re soldering or replacing around the motherboard area. I would take to a local pc repairer for repair or replacement.
