I was using my laptop one day and all of a sudden the screen went blank. I turned it off and powered it up again and the screen was still blank. The power button and indicator lights go on and it makes the normal power up sounds but the screen continues to stay blank. I tried taking out the battery, letting the battery die then plugging it back in, taking out the hard drive and putting it back in, letting it rest for a whole day and trying again and powering it on and off a million times. I don't know whats wrong with it. Please help!

The DV6000 series of notebooks are known to have problematic motherboards. Try the below options:
1) Hold the power button down for 5 second and the machine should shutdown. Then power on again.
2) Flip the laptop over and switch the "lock" switch to "unlock". Then flip the release button to remove the battery for a few seconds. Put the battery back in and try to power the laptop on.
3) Power on the notebook like normal. Watch the Hard Drive activity light (the one that looks like 3 stacked plates), if the screen is blank and the activity light is solid or flashing, you know that the LCD screen is bad and needs to be replaced. If that light is not flashing then the problem is your motherboard and it needs to be replaced. Call HP and ask them if your model was part of a DV6000 series recall, if so your repair costs might be covered.
remove battery, press and hold power button for 5 seconds, then wait 5 minutes, put battery back in securely and try again. If it powers on, try and look at the power meter to see if it is registering the power supply. You could have faulty memory chip or faulty power supply
