Hello,
I HAVE A HP G60 THAT WON'T CHARGE, COULD IT BE THE CHARGER SOCKET?

It could be a faulty adapter, which is relatively inexpensive to replace.

A more expensive option is that your battery is faulty.

Replace the adapter first.

Good luck.

HELLO, I TRIED A NEW ADAPTER, STILL WON'T BOOT, WHEN I HAVE THE BATTERY OUT FOR A FEW MINUTES AND THEN HIT THE POWER IT STARTS TO BOOT FOR TWO SECONDS AND STOPS. THE POWER (LED) INDICATOR DOES'NT COME ON AT ALL.
COULD IT BE THE SOCKET FOR THE ADAPTOR? AND HOW DO YOU CHANGE IT?
THANKS

If your system boots then shuts down then I think it could be a hardware issue.

I would lean towards a mainboard issue.

It could be either or both. If you have an electronics shop you may be able to get it tested before buying a new one. If that turns out to be fine, it should then be the socket itself. Sockets can also be easily repaired with a bit of solder and a steady hand. I would rule out a faulty battery because wheather or not the battery works, the laptop should get powered from the charger. Even if that is the case, removing the charger and pluging in the power should allow the laptop to start.

Hi :) 

Changing a charging socket takes three things....

A new socket, a variable temperature soldering iron and brains...

From his attitude , I am pretty sure the OP doesnt have ANY of those three...

All the best Brett :)
