Hello,

My HP laptop has recently gone dead on me. No response from the power button at all. What is odd is that the power supply light is brightly lit when plugged into the wall, but once it is connected to the computer, the light begins to flash at a very dim level. It seems like some sort of short, hopefully something just where the power input is in the laptop. When the cord is wiggled a bit, it also sounds like a somehting is loose and sitting incorrectly just inside the computer

Any help would be appreciated.

Hey Kyle,

I actually solved my problem a while ago. I too thought it was the power supply, and took it to Best Buy, where for free they just plugged in a different power supply with no change to the computer. That left the internal connection, so I opened the case (which was quite easy to do) and the place where the power cord connects to the motherboard has a small silver housing. I just kinda wiggled mine around until the light of the power supply came on again, and put it all back together. No problems since.

Hopefully that might work for you.

Nice Job Kate, you really did help the fellow who asked for it. Not only did you rant about HP IN ALL CAPS you officially made yourself sound like a jerk.

Anyway, I have been having issues with my HP, and they all revolve around the power supply. I believe I had a short in the transformer for the power cable and now my whole computer is lost to me. It won't repond to the power button nor will it charge. I'm thinking it's a fried wire inside, but I see no scorch marks anywhere on the laptop ports; so I am not exactly sure. Any suggestions/quotes on prices for repairs would be much appreciated.

hey,
i've got a HP dv6000. last couple of days my power chord has been acting up, until eventually breaking altogether yesterday. The laptop side of the transformer had frayed. So the Engineer in me decided to try cut out the frayed section and reassembe the wire. Lots of sparks and mild electric shocks later I had no real success, so today I went out and spent 70euro on a universal laptop charger. It is a variable voltage one so I set it to the specified 19V and plugged it into my laptop. The blue circular light around the power cable inlet iluminates but the lightneing bolt symbol at the front of the laptop that signals if the battery is charging stays off.

so I assume ive fried something inside while messing with the original cable! unless anyone can offer some other sugestion or course of action??

Thanks lads
