Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
My HP notebook every once in awhile will not power up. The AC adaptor is receiving power, but when you push the "on" button, it does not power up.
I received some guidance in the past to unplug the power source, remove the battery, and then hold down the "on" button for several moments which I understand drains residual power from the system, and may correct many problems. I then connected the AC adapter to a wall outlet and plugged the other end into the computer. This worked! Note: this did NOT work when the computer was plugged into the surge protector. Why the difference?
I don't want to keep doing this each time. Does someone know what could be the problem? I didn't want to remove and reseat the RAM if I dont have to.
First, try powering the Notebook by pressing the Quickplay button as if the issue is with the Power Button, it should start.
You need to get the Power Button of the Notebook repaired if the Notebook starts by pressing the QuickPlay button.
However, if the issue is different and the notebook doesnot start by pressing the Quickplay button, I recommend you to try removing the RAM of the Notebook and try with One RAM stick at a time to boot the Notebook and also by checking the Memory sticks in both the Memory Slots.
You can find the required instructions to remove and replace the RAM modules in the Notebook from the Manual of the Notebook which is available through the link below :
You can find the required instructions starting from page number 104 of 233 in the Manual.
However, if the issue persists, it can be a Hardware issue for which you may have to get it repaired.
Additionally, I would like to inform you that HP had identified some hardware issues with few Notebooks installed with AMD Processors and is providing free repairs for notebooks purchased and currently available in US and Canada.
You need to get the Product Number of the Notebook which is indicated with P/N and is printed on a white sticker pasted at the bottom of the Notebook.
Check if the Product Number of your Notebook is listed in the list available in the link below :
If your Notebook product Number is listed in the link provided above and if the Notebook is installed with AMD Processor, you need to contact HP Chat Support and provide the required details and get the Notebook repaired by HP for free.
