    Well i've tried several things, disconnecting the battery and power supply then draining the residual energy, verrifing that it has power from the ac adapter, and verifing the memory modules are seated properly. The power button is working it illuminates when pressed along with all the normal leds that light up on initial power up, but the screen never shows the boot up screen including logos, I can't access bio or anything if i wanted to. I'm at a dead end not sure what is causing it. Thanks again for any help.

    I did not install anynew hardware or software either.

    Yes as a last resort I called hp last week and asked if there were any recalls like when the hard drive was recalled on my old pavilion desktop. They didnt send me a notice on this notebook but sure enough like your saying judge there was a motherboard recall. They shipped me a box and are repairing it free of charge, I have not received it back yet but hopefully it will be all set, though I expect I will have lost all my data due to a hard drive reformat but at least it will be fixed. Thanks for the help guys.

    Is there enough power and can you see any other logos before windows booting? If you can see any other logos then press F8 before xp logo and select safe mode from list. Did you thied to install any soft or hardware before that happened?

Presario V6000 laptop

sounds like a motherboard issue ,
can you take the drive to another computer and check the contents are still accessible.
If contents are accesible then the motherboard is poked.
replace device and start again.

There is no cheap fix for this one unfortunately.

Keep me posted with your outcome thanks

Compaq Laptop Not booting

This is not a hard drive problem. The reason for the display of the box showing the message is that one or more of your critical system processes got stopped somehow. Your system files may have got corrupted and may be as a result of that your computer is behaving weird. I too had the same experience.
Try reinstalling the Operating System. It sure did work for me.
