    We bought two Compaq lap tops for our kids at the same time. One has never really held a charge very long on the battery. Battery went completly dead, will not even start with the power cord that still works. Is there an intrenal battery that needs changed?

    THANKS

    Did you try removing the battery, yet keeping the adapter plugged in and booting? There is no internal battery - but if the laptop won't start with just the cord, then typically it's a larger hardware issue (motherboard, bad component, etc.)

    Or the charger or a broken DC jack; where the charger plugs in.

    Yes - I was bundling all that up in general hardware. Try and see if when you plug in the power to the back of the laptop, if it moves a lot it's probably broken.
