How come my Compaq Presario c700 laptop will not charge?

by on November 26, 2010

Q: I have a Compaq Presario c700, and it recently stopped charging. My task bar says x% available, charging, but does not show the battery animation and the percentage never goes up (so it isn’t actually charging). I ordered a new battery today and both the battery and ac charger work fine in a different laptop. What could this be? Please help! Thank you!

    It may actually be where the adapter connects inside the laptop. This is a common part to break or come loose and not charge your laptop. If that is the case usually the only way to repair is to bring trained technician that will have to solder in the new parts or if it is still under warranty HP/Compaq may fix it for you.


    You mean the part the power cord connects into the laptop? Or the part on the power cord itself?


    The part i am referring to is in the laptop itself. It is where the power cord plugs into.
