HP dv6000 won't turn on

Hi,
I was using my laptop the other day and after I was finished using it I put in sleep mode by depressing the on/off button quickly. I later returned and attempted to start up my laptop, nothing happen, except for the blue lights on it would go on and off. I shut it down completely, then restarted it, only to have it do the same. I even removed and replaced the battery after a few minutes, then restarted with no luck!

    Mine just started doing the same thing. Even before this started there were strange things happening with this laptop like the DVD opening randomly, hanging on the initial splash screen, and being frozen up after closing the lid.



    I just got off the phone with HP Support, and at least for the moment it's covered under warranty. We'll see.



    Here's a link that had my machine listed that might be helpful to you.

    Screen stays black on start-up and computer makes attempts to start-up, but nothing ever comes up. I hear this is a very common problem with hp's and it's one that rarely ever gets fixed the first time. Anyone have advice other than chucking it in the trash and buying something else?

I suspect that the issue is with the Power Management settings which might need to be reinstaled.
You need to follow the instructions provided below if you are using Vista to reinstall the Power Management settings and install the Chipset Drivers :
Right click on Computer and select Properties.
In the window that opens, click on Device Manager in the left pane of the window.
The Device Manager opens in a seperate window.
In this, click on the [+] mark next to System Devices to expand the tree.
In this, right click and Uninstall all the devices which contain ACPI in their name.
Once all the etries that contain ACPI are uninstalled from the Device manager, restart the Notebook and the Power Management settings will be reinstalled automatically.
Additionally, I recommend you to download and install the Chipset Drivers for your Notebook installed with AMD Processor from the link below :
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp36001-36500/sp36079.exe

Make sure that you save the file in the Notebook and double click once the file is saved. Double click on the file and complete the installation and restart the Notebook.
However, if you are using Windows XP in the Notebook, follow the steps listed below :
1.  Click Start, select Control Panel, and then choose Performance and Maintenance.
2.  Click the System icon to open the System Properties window. 3.  Select the Hardware tab and click Device Manager. 4.  Click the plus (+) sign next to System Devices. 5.  Right-click the ACPI Fixed Features button and select Uninstall. 6.  Restart the system which will automatically reistall the Power Management settings.
You also need to download and reinstall the Chipset Drivers for your notebook from the link below :
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp33001-33500/sp33411.exe

Save the file in the Notebook and double click once the download is completed and restart the Notebook once the installation is completed.
This should solve the issue with the Notebook.

My kobo is in sleep mode and won't wake up


Turn it off by pressing and holding the power button for 5-8 seconds. Restart it.
When it's up. Update the video driver. You can find the driver in the manufacturer's website. However, if you want to cover all possible driver-related issues like what you are currently experiencing then use RadarSync.

I hope this helps!

Hp Pavillion dv6000 will not turn when hit theon off button nothing happens


A lot of times these laptops are in a sleep mode (after a certain period of time which is decided by the windows or the user, the computers turn of the screen). I would start by pressing on the power button for a long time (about 1-2 minutes), then try all the basic stuff:
1. check the laptop's cable, if it looks okay or not, maybe there's a problem charging the battery.
2. try replacing the cable and the battery.
3. try removing the battery for about 24 hours.

update me if you have any developments

My battery is at 0% and does not charge and whenever i take out the power chord my computer automatically turns off. Any help


here is a good resource I found:

Solution for HP Pavilion DV6000 Battery Not Charge
  • Reinstalling the power management software has just fixed it for me. Go to device manager and under batteries, unistall the Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery. Go to Actions on the menu bar and select ’scan for hardware changes’. It will reinstall it and hopefully start charging immediately (mine did anyway).
  • If your HP Pavillion dv6000 has a battery that won’t charge yet still turns on when plugged in, turn off the laptop and remove the battery then wait for around 30 seconds, re-insert it and turn it back on, the charging update should say, plugged in, charging.
  • I made the bios update, and works for me. My Dv6000 battery problems were fixed. The battery led always blinking every time and the battery didn’t charge. Now it’s ok !
    http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01087277&lc=en&cc=us&lang=en&dlc=en&product=3245619
  • If it is still under warranty you can chat with an online hp tech who will check it out over the internet and send you a replacement for free. the dv 6000 laptops have a recall on a few problems and there is a bios update to fix it before it happens but will not correct it after the fact the recall on specific problems extends the warranty to 24 months http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01087277&lc=en&cc=us&lang=en&dlc=en&product=3245619 should get you to the warranty page.
  • Just got it to charge again.While the laptop is powered and in Windows XP, press and hold the POWER button until it dies. Then, remove the dv6000 laptop battery. Power it back up and enter Windows. Then, re-insert the battery.
  • So I always remove the Hp dv6000 battery after I have powered down the laptop, and I have not had any battery problems since then!
  • I had the same issue my fix was a new cmos battery that was only $10.00 and install updated bios software from HP
  • I had the dv6000 battery problem where it showed my battery NOT CHARGING. I took it apart because my QUICKPLAY would not work either and the QUICKPLAY lights stayed on even after I shut down the laptop. I found that the black ribbon cable on the right (the other looks the same but you can see it is for the power button) was slightly kiltered in the flat socket it goes to underneath the area where the quickplay button is. I straightened it out and made sure it was pushed all the way in and locked and put it all back together and everything worked perfectly after that. About a month before that my POWER and SOUND didn`t work. I did the same thing to fix those problems. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THOSE CABLES EXACTLY RIGHT in there, IT MAY JUST BE YOUR PROBLEM TOO.
  • Some people dont realise that you should avoid short charges and discharges, if your batery does not go above 40% mabe its charge memory thinks its full. to fix this problem let the batery run fully down, then charge it all the way again. try it a few times if it doesnt work. and you have to go all the way, not let windows go into hibernation. to do that you need to get the batery low, then boot to some boot disk and let it sit till the batery dies.
  • HP has posted BIOS updates to address battery problems as well as the auto startup on some.If you will post the full model number,someone can help you find your driver/updates page.
Hope this helps, please rate! ^_^

HP dv6000 boot problem


I had a similar problem. You may want to attempt a hard reset on the unit first. This is simply remove power from the laptop. Remove the Battery. With all removed from the laptop...hold the power button down for one minute. Then release the power button. Plug in the battery first...then the power cord. Try powering the unit up again. This reset will not do anything but do a Hard reset on the machine. Sometimes static charge can build up on the motherboard...the PC will go into a sleep protection mode. This essentially wakes it up.

HP Pavillion dv6000 Vista notebook crashes when entering sleep mode


This is a common problem with HP Pavilion laptops, including mine. Check and make sure there are no non-OS programs running that are trying to control power settings (like a power monitor program running in the system/task tray) and then turning of hibernation in the POWER SETTINGS and then for all "WHEN I CLOSE LID" and "WHEN I PUSH THE SLEEP BUTTON" and "WHEN I PUSH THE POWER BUTTON" select DO NOTHING, then APPLY. Then SAVE SCHEME AS and choose any new name. This will disable all sleep modes forever, but at least you can get on with normal use.

If you are geeky, try going into the BIOS and DISABLING anything marked WAKE ON, and disabling anything having to do with automatic power features, and then try hibernating and so forth normally through the OS again. Sometimes this works if there are conflicting settings in the BIOS also trying to increase power efficiency.

Good luck...
