Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook

Computor cutting out.....Remedy ??

Turning on ......no response..... durning short periods while on will cut off
i have a hp pavilion dv6000 "entertainment PC" laptop. it has 2G of RAM and runs vista. I just purchased a 22" flal screen monitor for home use. Now, since using the large screen monitor (via the laptops VGA port), my laptop frequently shuts down when I have many apps running (Windows Media Center, iTunes, IE, visio, etc). there is no warning...it just turns off. I presume that it is either a power or cooling problem...I lean more towards cooling since the problem occurs when I have many apps running; If I just have one or two "light" appls running, my laptop is fine on the 22" lcd monitor. Can I get my cooling upgraded?? or is this a power problem? or both??

As per your description, I understand that the issue is with overheating of the Notebook because of which it is turning off after running for some time.
First of all, Notebooks are not meant for heavy computing where they are designed for computing on the move and they cannot handle all the tasks we generally use in Desktop computers.
Coming to the issue, there will be some settings in the BIOS where the Notebook will be turned off when it reaches or exceeds certain temperature.
If the computer is allowed to run even at this temperatures, the Processor and Motherboard will burn causing serious damage to the computer.
First of all, check that the Cooling fan of the Notebook is free from dust so that it can spin at required speed and blow the enough air to maintain the temperature of the processor.
Additionally, see that the cooling fan vent of the Notebook from where hot air is blown away is dust free since if is blocked hot air will not go away and it will be circulating inside the Notebook making the notebook hotter and situaions will turn worst.
Blow the Cooling fan at the bottom of the Notebook and the cooling fan vent at the rear of the Noteook using Air Blower so that the dust which might be blocking them will be removed and there will be better cooling available.
Additionally, see that there is enouth room available at the bottom of the Notebook for enough ventilation.
You can also try using notebook cooling solutions like Cooling Fans which will be placed at the bottom of the Notebook and having two fans. These devices will be connected to the USB Port of the Notebook for power and blowing air to cool Notebooks.
Hope this helps...

Hp pavilion dv6000 battery not chargering


First try to reset the battery to see if it helps any by doing the following: Turn off all power saver settings on your laptop, disconnect the laptop for the ac adapter. Then use your laptop and run the battery down ignoring any low battery messages until it dies. Then let it fully charge for a night without turning it on, and see if it has saved any charge. If it still hasn't saved any charge, it seems like the only option is that its a dead battery and needs to be replaced. Best of luck!

Laptop keeps cutting off seems to get hot fast


Hi:
The DV6000 series of notebooks have a problem with motherboard issues, to include WiFi Failure, video problems, and other issues. You can do your own research on this, but it is pretty widespread, to the dv2000, dv6000, and dv9000. Many HP owners were offered enhanced warranties, and at the minimum, received a discount on repair.

See what you can do, as it won't get any better for you.

HOW DO I TAKE MY HP PAVILION DV6000 OFF OF SAFE MODE. BECAUSE THE PC CUT OFF CAUSE OF LOW BATTERY. I JUST WANT PC TO BE BACK IN REGULAR MODE NOT SAFE MODE


You should just have to shut it down in safe mode and reboot. And it should come up in normal mode. You can try hitting F8 when you turn it on until you get the boot menu and then select boot in normal mode.
If it keep wanting to go into safe mode it may need to reboto a few times to clear out something before it behaves but it should boot into normal mode on its own.

Power led goes on and then goes off.


Some years ago I had a similar issue with an IBM and with that one the capacitor that filters out the current (right after the power jack, usually the very first capacitor that gets the power) was short circuited. It was a ceramical capacitor, at least that's how we call them here.
