Question about HP Pavilion dv6000t Notebook

Laptop won't turn on, blinking blue light

Hello,
I am very concerned with this problem. I was using my computer normally, I had it plugged in with AC power. But then I noticed it was running out of battery. That seemed ridiculuous at the time since I had it plugged in. So evidently it wasn't getting AC power so it was on battery power. The computer turned off after the battery drained completely. When I tried to turn it on again, having it connected to AC power, the power light blinks rapidly and the computer simply won't turn on. I sent it to the repair center and they simply tell me it's the motherboard and that it will cost me $800 or more... What I don't understand is... If my computer's motherboard is fried, how come my computer was working perfectly until the battery went out of power. Honestly, what I thought at first is that there was a problem with the AC adapter :( Any ideas will be greatly appreciated.
hp dv600, will not turn on. it was fine then it stopped working. I noticed the battery draining but never thought anything of it. Now it doesn't matter if the battery is in or out and the ac adapter is plugged in, it will not turn on. I just wanted to know if there was something i could do to solve it or is it totally done.

Jeremy,

It depends what failed on the motherboard. If the charging circuit is failed then you may indeed need a new mobo. The fact that it was working wouldn't be affected by the dead circuit as it only effects th laptops ability to recharge the battery or run from power.

Try talking to hp online tech support as they offer a $500 flat rate repair on many models. They can be access by going to www.hp.com and clicking the "contact us" link the the chat with live technician link.

SOURCE: Laptop won't turn on, blinking blue light

first suggestion :
if some 1 with the same computer model can lend you his battery or ac adapter or both for a while u can then make sure if ur battery is ok.

second sugestion:
get to the mainboard
there is a jumper near the cmos battery usually shows the
word (jbat) near it , try to change its position for some
seconds while power is off , this way will clear cmos and set the
mainboard bios to default settings.
start the system hit delete or F2 to enter setup then exit saving changes.

No a/c power light on laptop


Hello

Well the first thing you should check is the amount of power output to the power supply. for example the computer needs 12V but the AC Adapter only gives 9V.
If that's not it then the actual green light is not receiving that information from the motherboard. that's not an issue if the battery get's filled up and the laptop works normally . If you notice that the laptop tends to shut down quickly when it's not plugged in then the battery is worn out. These things happen since the a laptop battery becomes very inefficient after 2-3 years.
One more thing - try to rotate the input end of the ac adapter cable. maybe it's not making good contact inside the laptop.
Hope this helps.

The Western Digital hard drive My Book Elite does not show up on the computer screen when plugged in to the Mac computer. It has the blinking light that shows that it is thinking, and everything else...


hello

i have the same issue, exact same unit MY BOOK ELITE WD 500G ..
FYI: if this doesnt work, it is a power module (inside the black box, MY BOOK ELITE) needs to be replaced.

UNPLUG both cables from MY BOOK ELITE WD - restart your computer

- with respect to the MY BOOK ELITE WD , make sure the power cord is plugged into AC outlet wall only, and the other end of the USB into computer only -- but disconnect both from the MY BOOK WD ELITE and leave unplugged for 20 minutes .

after 20 minutes have elapsed, plug the USB cable only for 1 minute , into MY BOOK ELITE WD. Then plug the power cord into the MY BOOK WD Elite. see if it works

if this doesn't work, let the drive sit for 24-48 hours.. then repeat above instructions -- this is how i got mine to work again. FYI: To avoid this issue, i just leave the unit plugged in , while computer is running

BUT -- be aware... i use UPS (Uninterruptable power supply) to avoid power failures throughout the house. So , i suggest , if you want to leave the computer running, use a power supply to run the computer if the AC power fails..

please issue 4 thumbs up

Hello, SONy Pcg-FRV37,Power problems


Clean the metal contacts on the Battery and in the compartment. Then, reset the BIOS to its default settings.
Next, plug in the AC Adaptor to charge the Battery.

If the issue persists then the problem may be related to the power circuitry.

Too much things is connected thru that wall. The outlet is being use to pull more current that its normal use or that it can handle hence running different ports hot which will cause problems in the near. Somthing will get too much current & blow up !

Recommend that you chose a outlet for the adapter.
