Compaq charger not working – The cause and the solution

We at Laptop-Power UK hear on a daily basis from people who say their HP Compaq Charger is not working, their battery is dead and their laptop rendered useless. There are usually two main causes for a  laptop PSU to seem as though it is no longer working. Firstly you may have an issue with the DC socket inside your laptop. This would obviously prevent any charge from reaching  the parts inside your laptop that need it. Look to see if the socket is loose or ‘wiggles around’ easily.

The other issue could be with your old charger. It may have broken due to misuse, a manufacturer error or simply  its age. When purchasing a replacement laptop PSU you should always make sure that it will compatible. For instance the  HP Compaq 6735s charger will require a ‘chipped tip’ or original HP replacement. Manufacturers have built in these measures to ensure only the correct Laptop battery Charger can be used. Here at Laptop-power UK we provide  both original HP Compaq Presario chargers and our own branded ‘Smart tip’ power supplies to ensure you will never be without your favourite machine
