Pavilion dv 6500 dead ,the jack port lights up but nothing else
Laptops don't boot for the following reasons: 1) Bad Power Cord. 2) Bad DC Power Jack where the power cord plugs into the laptop. 3) Static Charge Buildup. 4) Bad Motherboard.
The above 4 reasons are when you press the power button and absolutely nothing happens. You hear no fans running, no disk drive running, no one time clicking sound on the CD Drive and No light for a second or two when the CD drives click. In the case of a motherboard issue sometimes you will hear beep sounds or see blinking lights. Those beep sounds and blinking lights tells the technician what is going on with your motherboard and why it will not boot.
So you have a power light which means your power cord and dc power jack is good. So lets see if you have a static charge buildup.
Remove the Power Cord and the Battery from the laptop, then Press and Hold the Power Button for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds put the power cord back into the laptop, but leave the battery out. Press the power button to see if it boots. If it does you had a Static Charge Buildup and it's ok to put your battery back in. If it does not you more than likely have an issue with your motherboard.
You particular mode probably has the Nvidia GPU Graphics Card in it and it's a well document known manufacturer's defect all over the internet. If you see lights blinking or hear beeps but nothing appears on the LCD Screen make sure you count the blinks and count the beeps. More than likely you have the Nvidia problem and you missed the recall and the extended warranty because HP got away without tell all their customers. The only way you would have known is if you just happened upon their website.
You'll need to get your Graphics Card Reflowed and that requires a complete disassembly of your laptop. Get a quote from your local repair shop then check out the guys at: http://www.generalsystemsconsulting.com
