You may need to download and re-install the Drivers for each device if you have not done so already.

I can only presume your Running Windows XP on your Notebook being that it's 3 yrs+ Old? If this is true then you can download the drivers from here :

If you have installed Windows Vista on your Notebook, then you can download the Vista Drivers from here >

Hope that helps :-).

    In reply to the post below, when ot comes to any Electrical Goods that become Inoperable due to a fault caused by Poor Workmanship (IE Loose Wiring through poor Soldering) which does not cause immediate problems, but fails to work after a Warranty/Guarantee has expired, then the original Warranty/Guarantee that came with the product would be considered as Invalid from Day One, regardless of the time the product was purchased.
    However, you have to have atleast some proof which would show that the product was indeed a faulty product upon receiving it from the point of purchase. This could be done by not attempting to unscrew any screws (which may show that the product has been dismantled by anyone other then the Manufacturer). If this can be proven, then the Manufacturer of the Faulty Product (Not the Retailer who sold you it) has duty to either 1. Repair it free of charge or 2. Replace the Product with a Brand New One (or atleast a Product Model that matches the cost of the Original Faulty Item at the time of purchase if the Item is no longer available in stock).
    However, I very much doubt that the Problem pmgaul has relates to it being a faulty product, just more possibly either Damaged or Accidental Deletion of the Drivers (whether it was through the User, or more possibly other Software that has disabled/removed the original drivers from the system.

    If re-installing the drivers from HP's Website that I gave you above does not solve the problem, but the laptop still loads & runs Windows, then the next step would be to check through the Troubleshooting Page to eliminate all possibilities on the Specific Model of Machine you have.

Sudden shutdown


If the battery is full and still shuts down suddenly then it could be a heatsinking problem on your Notebook. Also try unchecking the option "Automatically Restart" from StartUp & Recovery section in System Properties.

How to Disassemble an HP Pavilion DV6000


The HP Pavilion DV6000 is one in a popular line of consumer-oriented laptops produced by HP. Relatively inexpensive, the Pavilion DV6000 is a good all-around value for most users. Taking apart an HP Pavilion DV6000 is not an easy chore and if you plan to use the laptop again, it is important you know what you are doing or you have a large appetite for risk. If the above doesn’t describe you, consider taking the HP in for professional repair or upgrade. Otherwise, follow the steps below to disassemble the HP Pavilion DV6000.
18385245_1.jpg?w=200 1、Prepare a clear workstation. Turn off the laptop and remove all power components including the cord and the battery. (Turn the laptop over and you will find the tab to push and pop out the dv6000 battery.) Also remove any peripheral attachments like card readers and USB devices.
90-04208-003_original-hp-pavilion-dv8000z.jpg?w=250 2、Turn the HP Pavilion dv6000 upside down and unscrew all the screws you find. Try to keep them separate by size so you can put them back in the same spot when and if you decide to reassemble the laptop.
3、Remove the hard drive and memory modules by pulling up on the rectangular compartments. The memory is located in the central compartment (remove by spreading latches and pulling up), and in most HP models the hard drive is located to one side.
4、Remove the optical CD/DVD drive by pulling on the drive face to the left and out of the laptop. Remove the WiFi card by disconnecting the gold connectors on the antenna and pulling the card from its slot.
5、Turn the hp dv6000 back over and remove the keyboard and power panel/media touch pad. Carefully pry the power panel up with a piece of hard plastic near the power button on the left side. Be careful when pulling not to yank the power connection as you might accidentally rip out a wire. Pull back the keyboard to reveal the connections. Disconnect the connections by carefully pulling on the tabs with your thumb and forefinger. If they are tight, wiggle them back and forth while pulling on them to loosen them.
6、Remove the screws that were underneath the power pack/media touch pad. Carefully pry up the top casing and set it aside.
7、Detach all visible connections to the motherboard by pulling gently on them, wiggling them if they are stuck. Gently pull up from the right side of the motherboard and remove. The HP laptop is now fully disassembled.

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...

HP pavilion wireless uninstalled itself


I have the exact same issue with a wireless card. Most likely the card is bad. The driver is not uninstalling itself, it simply can't see the hardware and is therefore not listed. Change out the card, and it should resolve the issue.

Please post back if you need more help, otherwise thank you for using and rating FixYa!

Battery problem of hp dv6000


The battery has a limited life span, and it sounds as though this one has reached its end. My own battery did the same thing. Though it had never been used, I bought it with the laptop as an extra, and after using for less than two months, it gives me no time at all now. Replacing the battery is your only option.

Please post back if you need further help, otherwise thank you for using and rating FixYa!
