Having problems with your HP Compaq Presario V2000 Notebook ?

Power cord was chewed by puppy..i spliced cord but laptop wont power up. is there a fuse or something that could have shorted?

Answers :

If you live in the UK then there will be a fuse in the wall plug. If your in the US then there is none.

Go back to the lead and make sure you have spliced it properly together making sure both sets of wires have electrical tape around them and the wires are not bare or touching.

While you do that take the battery out of the laptop.

Once you have checked the lead plug it into the laptop but don't insert the battery. Boot it on AC only. If the laptop boots up let it boot into Windows and then shut it down and remove AC power.
Reinsert the battery and AC power and try to boot the laptop up.

These power cords are very sensitive and shielded. A bad power cord can have very serious effects and damage to the hardware of the laptop, especially the motherboard. They can be bought on E-bay and other sites for less than 30 bucks....beats a 300 dollar motherboard bill.
