I can't seem to turn on my laptop (HP Pavilion dv6000). When I first attempted to turn on my laptop i saw a bit of smoke come out of the power connector spot. Now I don't think that is a good thing and when i checked the quick reference book the only thing that it talks about is low battery and just charging it in the right location. I'm just wondering if there is anything else i can do to fix this problem.

1. got to hp's website (http://www.hp.com)
2. Click on support and drivers
3. click download drivers and software (and firmware)
4. enter you model number (Pavilion Elite m9400t)
5. select your os (vista 64 bit)
6. download the Fall 2008 Original Intel Matrix Storage Manager Driver
7. install the driver.
Right click the power icon in the system tray (should look like a little plug with a lightning bolt on it.) Click on "adjust power properties." Click on the "advanced" tab, then where it says, "When I close the lid of my portable computer," select "Do Nothing."
It's acting like the juice is drained in the battery. Are you sure it's charged? Do you have a spare battery you can swap out?
Some of them come with two. I actually have the same series laptop (a Pavilion dv6258se, 6000 series), and they can be a little flaky.
I also had an issue where my HP power cable (that connects the laptop to the wall outlet) was faulty, and needed to be replaced, because it stopped charging the battery. I ended up purchasing a generic replacement power cable on eBay.
i know now,we have the same version of laptop..and your using vista home preium right..well anyway,thats normal..cos vista really boots too slow..so when u were logged in,so,if it must and not important,disable all things that were being activated or the atart up program..
and that thing really goes after u installed updates..
the only solution is,be patient..
