Question about Computers & Internet
I hace a HP dv6000 and I am not able to power it on, it was working fine the Monday night and tuesday it was not turning on.. anybody know how to fix this??
If it falls under the warranty just call it in. but if it does not I,ve fixed three already with the same problem. Its caused by overheating, on most its the power cable( a thin 5-6 inch flat golden-brown colored cable under the keyboard). You can find replacements on ebay for 5 to 12 bucks. when you open your laptop there are 2 of these under your keyboard one for the power and one for the media panel. just replace both since these are known to be defective. On another laptop, the thermal paste on the cpu was replaced, solving the problem. once youve done this update the bios (to the new version f.4) you can download it from HP support, so that the fan speed control, will be changed to basically an always on mode. That will prevent this from happening again.

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).
