laptop battery,power supplyac socket proble
Posted on 2007-08-03
i have this compaq presario r3000 laptop,its just recently came back from repair as it was in a bit of a mess,the ac socket at the back for the power supply cable was damaged and a new ac socket was soldered in at the shop i took it to. The only thing is when i use it the powwer supply has to be kept in,the battery will charge up to 100% but when you remove the power supply cable it will last a few minutes then cut out. When i replace the power cable it has to start charging again and is down at 3% even although it was at 100% 10 mins before. The hinge brackets that hold on the screen is also damaged and when you open the laptop you have to have support for the screen but i dont think this has anything to do with this problem, i might be wrong though.
What i am guessing is that because the ac socket was damged it was draing and also damaging the battery and now its done. The thing is its the 2nd battery its had and this would be a 3rd if i was to replace it.
What i need to no is do you think it was the damaged ac socket thats caused the battery to die and now that the socket has been fixed would another battery be ok.
This was my own suspicions but i need to no for definite and why it happened.
