HP DV6000 wireless not connecting and there is NO Audio at all

I've had my laptop for three years with no problems at all, except that the battery doesn't hold a charge for more than 15 minutes.

I've made no changes to any settings, but suddenly I cannot access the Internet (wireless doesn't detect network connections) and I have no audio whatsoever.

HP pavilion dv6000 speakers wont work


If you've check the Audio and Sound properties in the Device Manager then maybe the speakers are shot. Click Start/Control Panel and look for Sound or Audio and check the properties and settings. You can also click the Megaphone at the bottom right near the time. Make sure the Volume is turned up and not on Mute.

You can look on ebay and purchase replacement speakers based on a HP DV6000 Speakers search. You'll have to take the laptop apart to install them.

You could try downloading and reinstalling the Audio Drivers.

Get online and got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "HP Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system when requested. Download and install the Audio drivers.



Try using the VLC Player. It comes with drivers and codec. I've seen it solve many sound issues.




Try using VLC as your player. Go to www.google.com and in the search box type "download vlc" (without the quotes). Look for the Video Lan download from site www.videolan.org/vlc Download and install it. It downloads and installs in 3 minutes or so. It's a very fast player, smooth and it can play just about any type of dvd formats and media. It's totally FREE.

My Hp dv6000 laptop battery is not working?

Your battery is likely dead. Batteries over time lose their charge and eventually fail completely. I had a DV9000 laptop and after about a year or so it would report the battery was fully charged but it would only last 15 or so minutes before dying completely. Yours has probably met this fate.

Also, the HP DV6000 and DV9000 series of laptops (some batches) had defective batteries out of the box that there was a wide spread recall on (although HP did not publicize this much unfortunately so many that actually were affected never was notified of it, you might want to check HP's website to see if your products SKU was part of the recall.

But if your system is out of warranty they probably won't honor the recall at this point.

It might just be time for a new battery. HP DV6000 Battery

Wireless problems on but light wont turn blue tried above solution pass words wont work so now what


Dear i have send some information of your problem.
Please read this and solve your problem.

Thanks.

Solution for HP dv6000 wireless problem. Fix it yourself.
Hi...
I am from Costa Rica and my hp dv6000 had a wireless problem just like everybody.
Because I am in Costa Rica, the HP FEDEX service for repair, does not apply for me.

This is the solution that worked for me.
Difficulty: easy for skilled people, medium for inexperienced people.
It is not risky but be common-sense careful.
1- Unplug the Power cable and take off the battery.
2- Unscrew the memory cover. It is the one placed in the middle (2 screws).
3- You will see the memory, the bios backup battery and the wireless card (the one that has 2 cables plugged: one white and the other black, those are the wireless antenna).
4- Carefully unplug the backup battery. Small coin-like battery with a white plug.
5- Carefully unscrew the wireless card and remove it from the card slot.
6- Unplug the antenna cables.
7- Wait 5 minutes.
8- Plug the power cable and turn on the computer. Then wait for the screen to ask you something and choose the F1 option by pressing it.
9- Wait for windows to load and shut down the computer. Unplug the power cable.
10- Now plug back the battery and the wireless card. No need to explain how.
11- Put covers back and screw, of course.
12- Turn on your computer and verify the wireless switch is on the on position, otherwise turn it on when Windows is already loaded. The blue light should be on. If not, go to Control Panel, Device manager and check that your wireless adaptor is present and drivers are properly installed.
13- Your wireless must be alive and functioning.
14- If wireless not present, then it did not work, if it is present but have some problems, reinstall wireless card drivers and do what it should be done when updating drivers. That is a different problem.

That’s it. However if you want to know some important details, read the following.

-I tested my HP dv6000 wireless card on an Acer pc that is compatible with the wireless card.
-I try to test back the HP dv6000 pc using the Acer PC wireless card and the HP system said WIRELESS CARD NO COMPATIBLE CHANGE IT.
-The only one way to reset BIOS is by unplugging the backup (BIOS) battery as explained above.
-People generally try to fix it by recovering the original pre installed system, but it would fail must of the times.
-It is possible that the Wireless adaptor is defective; in that case none of the steps above will work.

Hope it worked for you...

DV6000 GT375EA#ABU Only powers on from its battery


I have had the same issues with my HP dv6208 laptop. I ended up sending my laptop in at their expense to get it fixed. My suggestion to you is to go to the HP support website and chat or call them. The dv6000 series laptops had several issues with the MB and wireless card. they should replace the failed part for free even if the laptop is past its regular warranty. HP extended the warranties on several of these laptops in this product line because of the failures. You have to tell them the serial number, product number and model and they tell you wether it is covered or not. Otherwise I am pretty sure you are looking at a new motherboard for your laptop. Hope this helps...

HP DV6000 Does not power on?? Can anyone help?


Check the power adapter with a multimeter, it could be faulty and therefore not charging the battery and the battery is flat. There would be a LED that indicates the laptop is charging when connected to the mains power.

This fault could be caused by faulty RAM (module) or it is not making proper electrical connection. Reseat the memory module a few times, if it still does not work then you possibly have faulty RAM (memory).
