Laptop issues. Need ideas
I got my laptop fall 2007. Its HP Pavillion dv6400 something or other.
One day my battery was running low. So I plugged it in. This laptop has a light ring around the charge input so you know whether or not it is plugged in. This turned on BUT i noticed the battery icon on the taskbar was not saying it was plugged in. It eventually ran out of power and shut off accordingly. There are also lights on the front to tell you if the computer is plugged in/charging/fully charged. This light as off.
So I took out the battery and left it plugged in to trouble shoot the battery. If I'm not mistaken, a laptop can power on without a batter if it is plugged in. This didn't work, so I assumed it was the power supply.
I bought a power supply for like $15 bucks. Plugged it in, little plug-in light turned on, laptop did not turn on. Tried this with and without the battery.
So now what? The only logical explanation I can come up with is that something is disconnected between the plug-in input and the rest of the computer. Ideas?
