Having problems with your Compaq Evo N610C Notebook ?

I have an old compaq evn n610c. I had some problems with it for a while where I had to wiggle the power cord a little to get it to power on with the cable. That worked for a while and then one day it just completely stopped powering up. Does not start with fully charged multibay battery and I cannot tell if it will start with fully charged main battery because I have no way of charging it. Could something inside be broken? How can I tell? Thanks.


Answers :

Hello,If the battery stops charging when you wiggle the power plug inside the jack, either you have a bad power adapter (test it with a voltmeter) or the power jack((DC jack)) is broken or loose.
If the power jack is broken you can replace it if you know few things about soldering;)
If the power jack is not broken but loose (not making good contact with the motherboard) you can re solder the old jack without replacing it with a new one.

I have a 2nd hand companq armada M300 notebook with docking station. It came with power lead which appears to fit both docking station and laptop - the machine powers up fine if I plug the power lead direct into the laptop but I cannot figure out how to charge the battery. I was advised that the battery is brand new - can you advise as to how to charge it, ie where do I connect the power lead and how long should it take to fully charge the battery?

My eee pc 4G surf won't turn on. It started having problems when the power cord was bumped - causing it to immediately shut down. Then it just stopped booting all together. I replaced the power cord and it will begin booting when I initially plug it in and hit the power button, but it goes black before it fully starts. At that point the battery light (orange), the power light and the wireless light begin going off and coming back at regular intervals like it's trying to boot but fails before


Most likely, either the power jack inside the machine (jack itself or solder joints) or the plug on the power cord was damaged; obviously the plug is only a few dollars to replace, the jack also only a few dollars, but much more labor intensive. My e ... ASUS Eee 4G Notebook

I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 that won't start. The battery light would flash orange 4 times then blue once, and then start over with the same sequence. Pulled the power board and fixed the solder joints on the power board socket, and it now charges the battery, but when I push the power button, no lights come on. The battery light flashes blue untill I push the power button, then that quits flashing. Pulled the harddrive, ram, dvd and still won't start. Also, removed the cpu and reinserted. Still
