I had a drink spilt on the power adapter where the power plug connects into the laptop. I need to get a replacement since, I use the laptop fairly regular and can't seem to find any that are HP
Does it have to be HP specifically?Plenty around on the web, these are just examples:60 Watt HP G6 G7 power adapter $8.98 on Amazonhttps://www.amazon.com/HP-Pavilion-G6-Adapter-Charger/dp/B0080E2G6EOr newer model 90 Watt faster charger $11.99https://www.amazon.com/Warranty-Faster-Charger-Aluminium-Cooling/dp/B00MGAA80E/ref=dp_ob_title_ce2 more replies
The power cable on my dv7, that plugs into my computer was loose from day 1. Thinking this may have been normal, I didn't report this to HP. Eight months later, it eventually burnt out the post that the cable plugs in to. I didn't notice the condition of the post inside until I went and bought a new power adapter and cable, which at the time cost $60 on sale at Best Buy. I still would not work, so I contacted HP, FEDEX'd the computer to them, just to have them say that this was not covered by warranty. I was always led to believe that any part that was defective due to the manufacturer, was under warranty. I was wondering if anyone else has had a problem with HP standing behind their warranty. If this is not just a remote situation, I don't see how HP could stay in business. I know that if HP refuses to make some type of adjustment on this part, I will never purchase anything else from them. Colt 38
I'm in a situation. I've had nothing but problems with my HP Pavilion DV5000, within a few days of purchasing it, it completely crashed. Best Buy replaced it, after having the new laptop for a few months I noticed it wasn't charging properly. About a month I got frustrated because my laptop was about dead so I unplugged the adapter from my computer only to find that the little pin from the ac adapter had broke off INSIDE my computer. I took it to Best Buy being assured it would be fixed since it was still under warranty and not cost me anything, a week later they call quoting me $200. I called HP and they said to send it to them and they'd fix it.. sent it to them and again after a week of having it they finally contacted me telling me that I am being charged $317 for the repairs and a new AC adapter and that the AC adapter is NOT covered under the limited warranty. I ask to talk to someone else and was told they can't give out any numbers, they'd have someone contact me. I received a call yesterday morning explaining it was my fault this happened.. and that they won't cover it and the cost was now $314. At that time I was also informed that my hard drive needed replacing but they'd cover that. I asked to speak to someone else and the guy told me he was the highest person to talk to (which was BS). I hung up and called back the numbers he gave me incase we got disconnected, a woman answered this time saying they ... Read more9 more replies

With or without the AC power adapter plugged in to the computer (known good power outlet), the computer will not power up. The LED located on the left side of the computer where the AC power plug is connected flashes 3 times (white), but does not power up.

I bought my laptop in, I believe, late 2010. There is a small possibility it was late 2009, but I am inclined to think it was 2010. Anyway, my laptop recently went on the fritz. Two days ago, I left it on while I was out on errands. It kept running much, much hotter and louder than usual, but I thought nothing of it. Hours later, I discovered that it had shut off, which is unusual as I had left a few applications open that would keep it on. I tried to turn it on, nothing. I noticed that the ac power light (near the ac jack) was red; it should be white to show that the power cord was plugged in and charging the battery. I searched a solution online: turn off computer (check) unplug ac, take out battery, hold power button down for 30 seconds, plug battery and ac back in, turn on computer. It didn't work the first time, but I did it for 60 seconds and then it worked. Everything looked fine, and it was charging properly and the battery was working again. I thought it was just one of those things that happens occasionally, no big deal. Last night, it went out again. Ran out of power, shut down, ac power light is red, occasionally blinks white when it "recognizes that it is charging" again or whatever. Tried the procedure described above again, more than once, but no dice. I searched more solutions online. All the solutions I found involved the computer being on, such as doing a battery check. My computer WILL NOT turn on. I CAN'T do any solutions that require it to be on... Read more
My computer guy tells me this is a short caused by the motherboard. I am not sure why. He says the motherboard will have to be replaced. My computer is almost three years old. It cost about $800 new. The motherboard will be about $150, "labor costs" almost another $100. So, in total, the fix would be 1/4th of the cost of laptop three years ago. The new question is whether that is worth it, and that's not even all that is wrong. The hinge is also displaced, a problem which apparently cannot be fixed. And I had to replace my hard drive about a year ago, because apparently it was "failing." In a two year old laptop. Thank you so much, employees of hp, for helping me with my problem. I hope my sarcasm is made clear enough. If and when I buy a new laptop, you can be sure it will not be an hp. I have had nothing but problems with every hp computer I've ever bought. I hate hp, and I say with all the power of my hatred, "Screw you."5 more replies
I shut down my Pavilion Elite for 1 week while away and now it will not turn on. The power supply light is on, I replaced the CMOS battery and the power switch is ok.
As you did not mention any message or display on the screen, I would use this tutorial for a step by step diagnostic. It also helps to remove the side panel, and visually watch the CPU and rear case fan movement(s). As you press the power button, pay attention to the fans. Also does the Power Supply LED stay ON? Or did it go OUT when you pressed the power button?5 more replies
The tips I got with this Kensington 33197 power adapter have numbers stenciled on them like N3, N5, N19, etc. The tips sold on their web site make no mention of the "N" numbers and have numbers like K20059, K20050, etc. and there is no cross reference.
You can also see a complete reference for "N" numbers to all the laptops they support at the above link. Again, no mention of the numbers Kensington uses on their site.
I need a cross reference for these kinds of numbers.
Kensington referred me to their telephone tech support; but, there is a language or cultural barrier that prevents their understanding what I need.
Does anyone know of such a reference?

My laptop will no longer turn on. When the AC adapter is plugged in, the LED light is white indicating power is arriving at the laptop. However, nothing happens when I push the power button.

Hello, I recently purchased the computer listed, but it came with a 65W Smart Charger which, according to the computer every time I plug it in, is not strong enough. It says "For full performance, connect a higher capacity Smart AC Adapter. For more information click here." I've looked everywhere online (Including HP's own PartSurfer) and found no more powerful charging units. I've heard that a 90W charger is what I want to get the most out of my computer, but where can I get one? Please help!
Hi, 65W is the original charger for your computer: http://support.hp.com/gb-en/document/c04704991 How long do you have this computer ? If still under waranty please contact HP in your country to get a replacement. http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/ww-phone-assist.html Regards.4 more replies
The battery in my hp pavilion 4400 is drained. I plugged the computer into the AC adapter all night. In the morning, the battery is still drained and the computer will not turn on, even with the adapter plugged in. I'm thinking a bad AC adapter. Any thoughts? Also, if the adapter needs to be replaced, will an off brand less expensive adapter work, or should I stick with the hp brand?
Send responses to: [email protected]
Just had to get one for my laptop...check for original WOW!!! went for off brand and works fine even if it only last a year I can still by 3 of them as opposed to the original.Just make sure you take your old one with you so you get one that is ok.
This is a common problem (I see lots of posts)
The problem source is the [Dell] AC adapter. PA-21 Family, 65W, P/N: NX061. It is made in China.
I have an XPS M1330. Using Dell after warranty service, replaced the Mother Board twice, replaced the battery twice, replaced the AC adapter twice - not fixing it.
Turns out the power warning message is very informative. It states "Please connect a Dell 65W AC adapter or greater for best system performance". So, I plugged in my Dell 95W adapter - WOW Problem Solved.
A lab test of my new Dell 65W AC adapter shows it to be 64.6 watts. If this unit gets hot (like after several hours of use), it may not put out the full 65 watts - the system may not recognize the adapter, it may power the system ok, but won't charge the battery.
These units burn out after only a few months of use. Their cables are too fragile. If Dell's or their supplier's Quality Control can't produce a reliable 65W product - I found seveal "Made In USA" universal adapters.
Well my solution was simple.
I just removed the battery pack and powered up my notebook. Then I turned off the notebook replaced the battery pack and VOILA. The error message was gone.
I need to operate my hp Pavilion dm1-2010nr laptop on a car's 12-14V power. The ac adapter output is [email protected] output. The laptop battery is 10.8V 4910mAh. Do I need an adapter made just for this computer or can I just plug it in to the 12-14V car power directly?
Hi, Good Day!! Yes you can use it in the car power but the battery will be charging slowly. HP doesnot recommend that as it may reduce the battery life cycle. Thanks. If the solution helps you donot forget to click on the thumbs up to say thanks1 more replies
Hello, I purchased a 64bit:Windows 8.1 Pavilion 15 notebook a few months ago.Product number:J5B65EA#ABU The laptop is only a few months old, all of a sudden i cannot connect wirelessly to the internet, when i check the device manager there is no wifi adapter listed in the settings. I tried downloading different adapters from HP website using the product number but none have worked or show up on the device manager. the ultility managers say that all adapters are upto date and if you use the network connection help, it states to conect using a cable. I am at a loss at what to do to fix it. Thanks,KJ
Hey @Kj1234 ,Welcome to the HP Forums! I understand you're experiencing issues with connectivity on your Pavilion 15 notebook, and the adapter is not listed in Device Manager. A lot of the time when a device is not listed Windows doesn't have a driver for the hardware or the hardware has failed. The problem with this is, without the device listed in Device Manager it's hard to tell what driver to install. Open up Device Manager and click View at the top and select Show hidden devices. Look for a field called Other devices. Expand it and see if ther's any Unknown devices. If there is, do the following:Right click the deviceSelect PropertiesGo to the Details tabChange the drop down menu to Hardware IdsProvide me with the first ID in the listOnce I have this ID I should be able to find you the correct driver. Thanks. I look forward to your reply!9 more replies

I have an HP Pavilion DV6402CA and the Wireless Adapter has been working fine for the past 8 months.
This weekend, like an idiot, I decided to install my D-Link DWA-642 Rangebooster N Notebook adapter. Who knew Card Bus and PCMIA weren't the same thing?
Anyway, after installing the software, the instructions prompted me to install the card. This is where I realize the cards are not compatible and abort the installation.
No problems present until I rebooted. Now the Wireless Adapter is no longer recognized by the pc. No question marks, exclamation marks, etc. It's just not present in Device Manager.
I know there are several posts on this topic indicating that the MOBO is to blame and that HP will fix the problem but it worked flawlessly for 8 months! It only stopped working when I installed the D-Link DWA-642 software. It sure sounds software related to me!
Now, I have downloaded the recommended BIOS upgrade and had no luck initially. About two days later however, the wireless worked fine. Now today, it's out again.
I'd love to hear a few educated opinions before I send the unit back to HP.
PS. I couldn't find anywhere in the BIOS where I could turn the Adapter on/off

I have a friend who has an HP Pavilion G6 running a 64-bit edition of Windows 8.
He brought the laptop to me telling me he had issues connecting to wifi networks. I did the normal check to see if the PC was detecting the Wifi Adapter itself by going to Device Manager > Network Adapters ..only for me to get there and find out there were no Wifi network adapters, only a "Realtek Ethernet Controller". I checked HP's website for the laptop's model's wifi driver, downloaded and installed it and got a prompt that the driver wasn't installed correctly.
The F12 key that's supposed to turn the wifi adpater on didn't do anything. I decided to do a system restore to the last time my friend told me it was working and yet nothing.
I'm guessing its a hardware related issue and I might have to open up the network adapter compartment of the laptop and place the adapter properly. I'm so confused right now.
Hi there. The card may be seated improperly, but you may want to try a few things first. Go to Device Manager and check "Show hidden devices" on the "View" tab. If it doesn't show up then it may well have to be reseated or the card went bad. Also, if you open it up, have a can of compressed air to clean the thing out. Being that it's a few years old, it's probably dusty. Make sure it's unplugged from a power source, the battery is removed, and take necessary precautions on static electricity before opening the case. I highly suggest doing a study of this procedure before performing.
Here's another fix you may want to try if the system does recognize the card:

Hello to everyone in the forums, This is my first time asking a question so sorry if I don't have all of the necessary information up front (I can provide more information if need be). I bought an HP Pavilion 15 Notebook PC (I believe it's a p100dx model number) over a year ago for school. For the last year, the laptop's been great; I hadn't run into any issues. But over the last few days, I've noticed the wifi kept disconnecting. I have the Realtek RTL8188EE 802.11bgn wifi adapter. Whenever it disconnects, I try to go in and try to fix the errors in Device Manager. The main issues jump between Code 45 and Code 10. Now the adapter isn't showing up in Device Manager, not even as a hidden adapter. I've tried updating the driver, but Device Manager would tell me either it's already up-to-date, or that there's driver software available but I can't update the driver because it won't start. I even tried resetting the TCP/IP in Command Prompt, but it didn't really help much. I've found a few drivers on HP's website (none on Realtek's), and I've tried installing the drivers, but the Command Prompt opens with a "Wait for install..." prompt, and then disappears, and I can't tell whether the driver was installed or not. The latest driver I tried was sp72517 (Version: 2023.15.701.2015), but I don't think that helped. The other two adapters are for ethernet (which I don't use) and the virtual host-only adapter for VirtualBox. I've looked in... Read more

Hello and welcome Jooshy Well not to put too fine a point on it my friend what you should have done was to burn a bootable Ubuntu disk when you boot from it you choose the non install option. I use this on quite a few occasions to solve hard drive problems when Windows will not boot or someone has lost their password.
However whats done is done. I don't know if that Ubuntu install would have wrecked the partition that is installed at the factory that you can use to do what is known as a factory default. Now if you are game you can try this > On power up tap F11 and it takes you into a repair install.
If the partition is gone then you are going to have to do what you are doing now. That being the case then you are going to have to keep at the driver site.
Also can you confirm that model number please as I cannot find any reference to the one quoted in the HP site. Plus can you give us a shot of the disk > Control Panel > Admin Tools > Computer Management > Disk Management and send the pic back so that we can see what there is on the C: drive. (see my pic)
For the last two weeks, every time I start my Dell INSPIRON E1705 while using the power supply I am greeted with the following message. "The AC power adapter type cannot be determined. Your system will operate slower and the battery will not charge. Please connect a Dell 90W AC adapter or higher for best system operation". I press the F1 Key and everything works fine. I've read about this on other websites and most say it's a design flaw in the power supply after the cord has been properly wound around the supply as designed. Apparently a few of the cords internal wire strands become broken and cause this message. My computer is from June 2006 and shouldn't be having this issue so early...or ever. This seems like a flaw that should have created some type of manufacturers recall since so many people are having this issue. I'm of course out of warranty, will Dell replace this free of charge?
You are correct, the failure is due toloss of the power supply ID signal. Sometimes this happens because of strain on the plug, which breaks the signal wire. Some even are so severe that the insulation breaks away from the plug; this is due to rough handling. The other cause is one or more of the power socket solder connections to the system board become broken. This also is related to severe handling. I have seen one case where all three power connections and three of four mechanical connections were disconnected. If the power supply is bad, a replacement will cure the problem. If not, then the socket is bad, and this will require a system board replacement. If you are experienced, you can try to resolder the connections. I am experienced and was not able to get my daughter's E6000 to work by resoldered. More recent Dells are using a replacable power connection board which is a much cheaper repair.64 more replies

My HP pavillion was accidently unplugged about 2 days ago while in sleep mode. Now it won't power up. It was not jarred or dropped. I tried the initial steps of removing the batter and power code, draining the power, then hitting the on switch for 30 seconds, but nothing changed. The screen goes 'white', the fan starts up, but the LED lights on the CAP LOCK and NUM Lock keys don't come on. The WiFi LED does turn on. Then, after about 1 second the fan and the screen shut off, and the WiFi light goes off. This happens whether the battery is in or not. The only USB plug I have in it is for the mouse but I removed it too. This set of symptoms is not covered on the http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c01443371 page, which also doesn't cover Windows 10, but I don't see how the OS would have anything to do with it.More replies

Hello everyone!I was handed a friend's HP laptop to look at. He has an HP Pavilion 15-N028US laptop that will not power on.* The AC Adapter light is WHITE and SOLID, not flashing when the AC adapter is plugged in. This happens both WITH the battery attached and when the battery is removed.* When pressing the power button, no lights or fans come on.* There are no amber lights that come on at all.* We do not have another HP adapter to swap out, but we are using the original OEM HP 65W AC adapter.* We have done a Hard Reset without any success.* We have removed and reseated the laptop memory. Now... HERE is the odd thing.Twice now, I have pulled the AC adapter from the laptop and got about 5 seconds worth of the HP POST screen before the screen when black again. The second time, about an hour later, I unplugged the AC adapter from the wall and got the same few seconds worth of POST screen before it died again.Normally, this would make me think bad battery and/or bad AC adapter.I am curious as to WHY the AC Adapter Light is solid and white. Shouldn't I have an amber or blinking light to indicate a problem??Your thoughts?More replies
I recently replaced a power supply for a family member. She has an HP Pavilion. Anyways, her original PS has a cable that has 2 black and 1 blue wire and connects into the motherboard with a 3 pin connector that says Fan C on it. The new one that I got out of another Pavilion does not have that cable. Does anyone know exactly what that cable is for, and if it's dentrimental to have? The PC works fine now with the new PS. Just curious.
Fan C (3 pin connector) just sounds like an extra fan connector where you could connect another fan to the computer if you wanted to. This isn't crucial or anything but depending on the model of the PSU she previously had and Computer she has like whatever year it might be, if it an older model HP then that might just be an older feature with the PSU's on the old HP's
My question is, how do I know if it's the board or the CPU that has failed? Background info: My PC power light was orange and nothing happened when I went to use it. It would not reboot, nor would it restart after unplugging it from the AC power source. PC will not power onat all. The power supply is good after testing, but I replaced it anyway. The PC would not boot up after replacing the power supply either. The only time I can get it to even run the fans is if I disconnect the 4 pin CPU connector prior to pressing the power button. When I do that, the power light turns blue, as it should, and the fans run. However, since the CPU has no power, it doesn't boot up. As soon as I connect the CPU power connector, the power light turns orange and the fans stop running. I did not have anything connected at the time, removing the keyboard, mouse and monitor. I also disconnected the HD and DVD/RW as well. Any suggetions would be appreciated.More replies
My ALL IN ONE will not start and a tech said that it was the power supply on the mother board and it would cost about $350 to fix. I am not technical but that seems excessive. Can anyone tell me what I have to do to fix the problem?
It's a Model #MS213 P#645AA #ABA
depends on what they mean - the power supply is converted by the adapter on most all-in-1
BUT if its a faulty motherboard - then I would expect that could be quite expensive part to replace - and then of course you have the Tech Labour to add on
Has the Tech got the PC ?

Hi, My dv6t laptop started to fail booting yesterday. The other night, I was still able to use it and play Overwatch. The laptop is I think a 2010 model since it is one the first generation core i-series laptops. I always use my laptop with the charger plugged in ( no battery connected ). Except yesterday, I need to get some files at my laptop, and used the battery, but it does not boot up. So I charged the battery first and try booting up the laptop after a few minutes, but ends in failure. The laptop failure scenario is this: the lights and the fan power up for 1 second then cuts the power off. When the charger is connected to the laptop, the LED indicator lights up (indicating there is a charger connected). Here is what I have already tried:- removed one memory module - removed hard drive- removes all components- replaced cmos battery- cleaned up fan Is there anything more I can do/test?

Hi, I have an 15 year old Pavilion 743 I bought on employee purchase. I've long since retired, but power supply has just failed, and ashamedly have to admit no backup for months. Local PC repair shop can't source power supply. It isATX-1956F. (Bestec). Can't find it on part suppliers referred to by HP.com/uk links. Only one recognises part number, and it is zero stock. So I am googling and coming up with power supplies. However, I'm wondering if the part number I mentioned above is enough to get the right power supply. The repair shop said they couldn't find the right dimensions. I have seen some conflicting information on dimensions when I search. Can you help with this by any further information on the part number needed and the dimensions, either imperial or metric. Thank you, FredMore replies
Hey All, My grandparents purchased a HP Slimline 400-034 from Bestbuy (refurb, sigh), and it suddenly won't power up now after owning it for 4 months. When I plug in the Power Cables to the PSU, the light is green. When I hit the Power Button, the CPU fan quickly spins, but the computer will not power up. I'm quite certain the PSU is good since it has the green light on the back, and the CPU fan spins briefly. I've unplugged the CD-ROM, and USB ports in the front to reduce power load, but it still won't power on. Is the Mobo done, or is there something else I can try? Thanks in advance!
Follow the steps in the guide. My opinion is the power supply is BAD. Those PSU's are TFX.The HP site gives a measurement 7.9 x 3.3 x 2.1 " NewEgg has replacements here and here9 more replies

I have moved to Italy with my desktop HP p6230F. I need a power cord, but I am having a problem locating it at a local store. On Amazaon.it, there is a power cord sold by HP with a part number HP 8121-0731. Unfortunately, the picture does not show an image of the end that plugs into the computer--it only shows the end that plugs into the wall, which is what I need. I checked at least 20 websites from at least 7 different countries, and all of them are showing the same picture.If you google HP 8121-0731 on either amazon.com or amazon.it, it shows the picture that I am referring to. The question is: Is this the correct power cord for my desktop? Grazie.

Hi, This is my first post, I have an HP pavilion ZD 8157ea power supply problem.
I use my laptop for stage work/ multimedia ie music through power amplifiers, when I use laptop without the mains power supply, everything is great. When I plug in the power supply I get a high frequency electronic noise not loud but very annoying.
I am led to believe that this is a common problem with the new style power supplies as they are not suppressed, my question is what can I do about the problem, is there a solution, where can I get a suitable power supply that will not cause this problem.
Thanks for any assistance
I assume that by "power supply" you mean the AC adapter in the middle of the power cord..
You can buy/try any AC adapter that supplies a voltage near the HP original and enough current. As for whether product X induces this noise or not.. No one can know. It doesn't even have to be the PSU itself, but some circuitry inside the laptop that does this.
Greetings,I have a HP Pavilion g6 2228tx, and it wouldn't turn on one day.I pushed the power button, and the power button LED flashes once but nothing else.

Can I use 45 Watt adapter for dell inspiron 15 5559?? I got the adapter along with the laptop when I bought it. But a warning is displayed on screen prompting me to use 65 Watt adapter... If so why 65 Watt adapter wasn't given with the laptop instead of 45 Watt?
The system is designed to support both 45W and 65W adapters - see the specifications here - http://dell.to/2fhPLIf
When you plug in the adapter to the system, does the adapter stay firm or does it fall off easily? Is the adapter frayed? Could you test with another power adapter if possible?
Restart the system and press f2 key to enter BIOS - check the adapter status in BIOS with and without the adapter plugged in. Also, wiggle the adapter cable at the end and see if the status changes in BIOS at any point.
Restart the system and press f12 key on startup - choose diagnostics. Let it run the diags and if you encounter any errors - make a note of the complete error and report the same to us.These are onboard diagnostics and they might possible pick some error if the hardware is not functional.
Also, please click my DELL-username and write me a private conversation with the service tag and your contact details(Name and Email) for case records.
Let us know if you have any other queries.
I recently bought a replacement power adapter for my dell e1505. The computer works but it won't charge the battery and tells me that since the computer does not recognize the charger, I need to reseat the power adapter... What does that mean?
Reseat the power adapter just means make sure the power adapter is plugged in good on the laptop and the wall outlet. I would try powering off the laptop, unplug the power cord, take the new battery out. Reinstall the new battery only and try to power on the computer. If that does not work plug in the power cord and power up with the new battery installed.

I bought a Dynex USB 2.0 4-Port Hub last week and have decided to add an external power supply to power the hub. The short and terse User Manual notes on the final page that a 5Volt / 2.5 Amp Power Adapter may be connected. I called their customer support number and talked to a lady, but her best advice was return to the store and ask there. My experience with this store over the years has been fat chance for this kind of request. Has anyone got a suggestion as to where I can purchase such a USB Power Adapter?
Radio Shack would be a good place to start although you might have to get one of their adjustable models. A Google search should also turn up something. Actually I just replaced my D-Link powered USB1 hub with a USB2 model. The old one is just sitting around and it has a 5V 2.4A adapter. If you want it so you can use the adapter just PM me and I'll send it to you.
I sure hope someone can help me because I have tried everything! I am attempting to repair an old hp pavilion a320n desktop for a friend. They brought the computer to me because it just wouldn't start up. Sure enough, when I plugged it in, the power button on the front panel lit up but that's all. No fan on the power supply or the cpu, no beeps, no standby light on the motherboard...nothing. I inspected the mobo (A7N8X-LA Focus) and discovered several bulging caps (one of which was beginning to leak). I replaced the motherboard but to my surprise, I still had the same problem (blue light on front panel but absolutely nothing else!). I have checked the psu (Thermaltake 450w) and it is fine. I switched memory modules, I even tried another power switch and still the problem exists. I don't know what else to do. Does anyone out there know of anything else I could try? I am going crazy trying to figure this out! Thanks in advance
I have a HP Pavilion 720a PC with a dying power supply. (It's a P4 1.6GHz on an Asus mobo)
HP have quoted nearly $300 for a replacement. (frack off, no way!!!!!)
So obviously I wanna use a generic off the shelf supply.
Will the motherboard 20 pin ATX pinout be industry standard or some HP proprietary design?
HP use industryu standard motherboards, but their own BIOS versions.
They do not use non-standard connections on the standard motherboards.
But they often use non-standard size power supplies, measure the physical size and check before you buy.

I wanted a second opinion on this. HP Pavilion G6 notebook, no power. When the battery is in I get three lights on the power LED when pressing the power button. With or without the AC plugged in. WITHOUT the battery, however, I get nothing- no lights.
There's only a single 4GB RAM stick so I don't have an extra to test.
I pulled the hard drive and it is fine.
Is it the RAM or possibly the motherboard? I don't want to order the wrong thing.
What are your thoughts?

This notebook, a gift to my wife, suddenly will not power on. Pushing the on button does nothing. When the power adapter is plugged into the notebook the blue light is on so the adapter is working. I've tried pressing the ON button with the adapter attached, and without. I've held the ON button for over 10 seconds. I've pressed the ON and the volume up for over 10 seconds. I've pressed the ON and the volume down for over 10 seconds. There are no other buttons on this device. I took it to a local laptop repair facility. They would not work on it because it is a sealed unit with no obvious way to remove the battery or reset the device. I believe it was purchased, from the HP online store, in late 2013 or early 2014 but without the serial number I cannot check the warranty status. As a 35 year retiree with truly fond memories of HP I am surprised at how hard it is to get simple support. The support page will not let you get past entering a serial number and this is the first HP device of any kind I have ever seen that does not have the standard HP label on it. To get support I need the serial number. To get the serial number I need to power it up. To power it up I need support. I detect a loop.More replies

Background info: HP Pavilion DV6000, Vista 32. I recently did a re flow on my GPU to solve the whole black screen of death thing. I used the oven technique (I know I know, amateur at best). But it worked, kinda. And my wireless came back for the first time in 2 years.
Now I'm having 2 problems. I can only keep it running for about 5 minutes before it shuts off. I believe it is a power problem. The blue light on the side comes on when I plug in the power adapter but not in the front. The laptop will only turn on if the front light is on. It seems to randomly work, sometimes after taking out the battery and putting it back in a couple times. When the comp is on, the battery meter shows full and that it is plugged in. I thought there was a loose connection from reassembling the laptop, but it turns off even if never touched.
Problem 2, I accidentally ruined the wire that connects the microphone to the top panel by the power button. Now when the computer is on I hear a helicopter like clicking sound coming from the right speaker. I tried muting and disabling the mic, then muting all the sound, but nothing. I thought I noticed the sound slowing down as I used the computer but could not duplicate it again by running programs I know would slow my computer.
I'm thinking there's correlation between the 2. Possible interference from the adapter? Maybe a short somewhere?

I got myself a Pavilion DV2000 Special Edition off ebay, got delivered a few days ago, and theres quite an issue with it. Not sure whats wrong but, when the AC adapter is plugged in, it doesnt charge. Bar none, it doesnt. Theres a ring around the AC adapter socket on the laptop to indicate its charging, this doesnt turn on. The charging light on the front of the laptop doesnt turn on either. Before this happend, the laptop was on and working, happy as larry, but it told me to plug in the AC adapter and it didnt do nothing when I did.
Ive ruled out faulty power sockets, and the AC adapter works with my Pavilion DV2000 standard and DV9000, so it cant be a faulty powerbrick.
Whats striking is that I dont think its the motherboard. If the mobo was damaged, wouldnt the laptop refuse to start? And, when the power brick is plugged into the DV2000 special, the actual power brick makes a weird beeping noise, as if the laptop is resisting the charge.
Its an awesome laptop, dont really want to send it back.
The power connector on the laptop might be damaged.

OS is vista Home Premium 32bit, the issue I'm having is with power management. When I start the laptop with battery and ac plugged in screen is at max brightness when I remove the ac cord display and the rest of the laptop goes into power saving mode. When I replug the ac adapter the battery light comes on as if it is charging but the battery icon in windows does not indicate that it's charging and does not show the ac adapter plugged in, on top of that the laptop continues to stay in power saving mode. Yet as mentioned above if I start the laptop on with battery inserted and ac plugged in it shows that it's charging the battery and power saving mode is off with full brightness and performance.
I have restored the OS from recovery partition, this does not fix it. I have tried a brand new battery with higher capacity, original is 4200mah higher capacity is 5200mah but when I attempt to recover OS it tells me to plug in AC even though it is plugged in, yet when I put the old battery in the 4200mah with ac plugged in it allows recovery as it has detected that ac cable is plugged in.

Push the power button and nothing happens (even if i leave the mains supply in). I checked the normal things. As i took the back panel off the CMOS battery fell out, and for some reason has no way to stay in there (i tried Blue-Tack which worked lol). I even tried another CMOS battery in case that maybe a cause. I have tried re-seating the Memory modules, and also tried it with 0,1 or 2 modules in there, but still nothing.

I have my pics backed up. But not vital info.(DOPE) ANY SUGGESTIONS??
Hi Ben, welcome to the forums, it does sound like a PSU (power supply problem) you can test this with a multimeter if you have one OR take it to your local computer shop. HP recommend a min 400w PSU, however for that model you also need the power supply to have a maximum combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 20 Amps or greater. Make sure you get a unit that fits this bill.2 more replies

Hi All, Here is my problem. HP Pavilion 15" laptop Model 15-P066US. This problem was intermittent before, but is all the time now. The light next to power plug does not come on any more when plugged in. Windows does not detect AC adapter but will run when plugged in. Here are the situations: If battery is removed (machine is turned off), and ac adapter is in, computer will not boot. I press the power button, and the led next to the power plug blinks 3 times, but does not boot. I tried hard reset steps as found on the web, but nothing changes.If battery and ac adapter are in, laptop will boot, not detect ac adapter, but will run on ac power since battery does not drain. However, battery will not charge when computer is on or off. If I run the battery check at this time, it displays the battery stats, but says it is not plugged in (no ac power). If I reboot the computer (once turned on) without the battery, it will reboot on ac power.If I boot into windows using method 1, then remove the battery, the computer still runs. Windows will then recognize the adapter and change the taskbar icon to indicate that it is plugged in. Putting the battery back in makes it switch to battery power again.I tested the motherboard battery terminals connections in the battery bay and there is power coming to them.I tried updating the BIOS, but since it doesn't detect the AC adapter, it wont let me update/...

I just recently swapped out a motherboard for a HP Pavilion dv6000 laptop. After getting the whole thing put back together, I plugged in the power cable and hit the power button, and it seemed to start spinning for maybe 1.5 seconds. Then it powered off.
I looked at the power jack and the blue LED that forms a ring around the jack was still on. I removed the power cable and plugged it back in, then tried to turn it on again. It spun for maybe a second before turning off again. Now the circular blue LED does not light up when I plug in the power. Nothing happens anymore.
