Question about HP Compaq Presario V5000Z Notebook
I have compaq presarion v5000 that i mistakenly plug to my printer ac adapter and it's not working now. the fan power up for a few second and the power button lights on. any idea what parts i would need to replace?
Your laptop runs on 18.5 volts DC at 3.5 amps.....Check the output on the printer power pack, if it is not the same, you have probably cooked your motherboard and that is what you will need to replace. Laptops do not under any circumstances like power that is not speced to thier configuration.

You might have just blown a resistor that is usually on the motherboard right near where the A/C connector connects to the motherboard. I did something similar, I plugged laptop cord into external hard drive and that happened to me. I took it apart and saw the small burn mark and the resistor there was cracked as well. I desoldered it and replace and now it works like a charm 9 months later.

Sorry to say but it sounds like you fried your motherboard. Too much voltage came from your printer power supply and over-powered the board. You'll need to either take it to a shop or take it to the dump.
