How to diagnose HP DV6000 AC Adapter

Learning how to check your HP DV6000 AC Adapter and how to replace it when needed can be a life saver if you're a computer buff or in business with the trusted PC.

Don't take for granted the simple pleasure of turning on your PC and everything works just fine. The Compaq AC Adapter convert's your regular household current into low DC voltage used by the computer. When this component fails,there is simply no activity going on wih your computer. Remember to do the easy HP DV6000 AC Adapter troubleshooting first.

Here you must first check the wall outlet for power by connecting another device such as a radio or lamp to be sure power is present.If the computer is connected through a surge protector,check it as well. If the wall out has power,check the power cable going to the PC to see if AC voltage is making its way to the system unit.Do this with the use of a multimeter. If there is power,you will have to open the PC and check for power from the HP DV6000 AC Adapter to the motherboard. One main problem you may face with an ailing Power Supply is that it may re-boot the computer without any warning. All information is lost and it seems as though this happens at the worst possible time. Booting errors when the computer first start's up is another indicator of this component going on the blink.

If the wall outlet,and the power cord are good,make sure the connection at the motherboard is secure.Then you may have to face the fact that the HP DV6000 AC Adapter itself is bad.If you have a Multimeter you can test the Compaq AC Adapter output before purchasing a new one.

Turn off the PC,but do not unplug it,open the system unit. Set the multimeter to read DC volts in the next range higher than 12 volts.Locate a power connector similair to the hard drive,or cdrom drive connector that is unused and turn on the PC.
