This could be a broken battery

HP Pavilion... | Answered on Apr 18, 2013

If your battery, charger, and DC Jack are ok, then the most common problem is the surface mount transistors on your HP's main board called MOSFET's. They are small 30V N channel 8 pin components soldered to the main board. The boards also have transistor circuits which switch back and forth between a charging and discharging state. However these rarely ever fail. The MOSFETS fail because of the thermal loads which they must endure. Although some notebooks (like the Gateway I'm currently on) have a DC jack which serves dual purpose of supplying DC 19V AND connecting/disconnecting charging circuit. However your HP dv6K does not.
However it's worth mentioning that these models have had all sorts of problems...most notably poor thermal design to begin with that usually creates solder connection problems with the main chipset especially on AMD models. Good luck.. :)

Try another Cord/charger with the EXACT same power specs. Has the AC jack been damaged due to pulling on the cord? Is the Transformer (brick) on the cord getting warm? Is the Battery LED on?

  2. Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD drive if you are prompted.
  3. When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.
  4. Press 1 (One) to select windows XP and then hit enter.

  6. At the command prompt, Type Bootrec /RebuildBcd and then press ENTER.
  7. If the Bootrec.exe tool runs successfully, it presents you with an installation path of a Windows directory. To add the entry to the BCD store, type yes. A confirmation message appears that indicates the entry was added successfully.
  8. If the Bootrec.exe tool cannot locate any missing Windows installations, you must remove the BCD store, and then you must re-create it. To do this, type the following commands in the order in which they are presented. Press ENTER after each command.

Bcdedit /export C:\BCD_Backup

ren c:\boot\bcd bcd.old

Bootrec /rebuildbcd

9. Restart the computer

The cables for these are fairly specific, but if you have a cbale that has the same plugs and fits both the transformer side and the computer side, you cna use that as a replacement. The cord itself has no polarity.
Are you looking to do something else here?

It's because of the poor cooling design. The Cooling Tube, and Heatsink.

Processor overheats, and turns off.

Also causes the Nvidia GeForce 8400M GS, GPU, to lift up out of it's BGA , on the motherboard.

Graphics Processing Unit.


Nvidia GeForce 8400M GS, (GPU)


BGA (Ball Grid Array)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ball_grid_array ]


Not recommended by me, but this is someones approach, which part of it helps the cooling system with the Processor.

Try to drain the static energy of the motherboard first by follwing this steps.

Take out the battery
Unplugged the power adapter
Press and hold the power button for 30 secs
Put the battery back in
Plugged in the power adapter
Turn ON the computer

If still NO display. You need to call HP tech support department for this could be a mainbaord issue. Since you mention that system is running hot. Computer fan might stop working that damages the mainboard.

Go to the link provided and try to download or update the driver. If that doesnt work them the driver is bad and you will need to buy a new one,

HP Pavilion... | Answered on May 31, 2010

That usually means the drive has failed and needs to be replaced. You may have noticed that it was slower and noisier shortly before it stopped. It probably stopped be able to burn dvds, then cd first, then it had problems reading dvds but would read cd's then finally nothing. Thats the typical pattern. Some just go from normal to nothing but thats not as common.

The cd/dvd drive is a simple repair and easily attempted. There is one screw that holds the drive in place on thebottom. Undo that screw and the drive slides out. Push the new drive in and put the screw in and you are done.

You can buy a replacement drive from several places including HP. You want to get it from a third party not HP. HP charges more. You should check to see if you have any warrenty either from HP or the store. they will replace this under warrenty. A replacement drive for this looks to be rather expensive at $200+ even from third party suppliers. Those can be found simply by searching for 'laptop replacement parts' using google or bing. Then looking up your specific model.

Remove the driver and re-install it

Hi there, if charged battery on the power of laptop is fine and not have any problem with your laptop. Your power cord may damaged. Please visit a electronis repair center and test the power code. 90 % chance of adapter damaged.

HP Pavilion... | Answered on Feb 10, 2010

When a system is turned on from being off, its fan spins extra fast to give help with the startup because the system is working its hardest. With this in mind it could be just a case of something being stuck in the fan or the fan itself being faulty. You can open up the laptop (if your not sure on how to do this follow a maintenance guide which you can download of the internet) and check the fan.
Hope this helps
