Question about PC Laptops
Hello my hp does not turn on when i press power button it seems like it begins to start all lights turn on i hear cooler but then it just turns off and then starts again i don't even see hp logo sometimes it starts up to the point where i can enter the bios but it cannot boot from hard drive because it cant find it. sometimes very rarely it boots to windows and goes without problems until i reboot or switch it off.
This is apparently a common problem for HP dv6000/dv9000 laptops. HP has extended the warranty on these models for this problem. See this page:

The problem is the ribbon cable to the power switch is bad, sound goes thru same cable. Look for a new cable on ebay. That fixed mine. It turns on and has sound now.

Well guys my problem started by one side of the speakers not woking, then they both went dead, soon after the power light went off and then i was unable to start it not even with the quickplay button because it would just hibernate. it is not a faulty os nor is it any sort of software problem. its the fact that the hp customer service is not good at all and their ability to use good computers parts does not exist. so... if u want to use my solution first u have to make sure u have the same problem... try with all ur might pushing down the power button without hitting the quickplay button and see if that will get ur laptop on. then, try applying pressure above the power button and the area around it see if u can get it to turn the light on, if u can then all u have to do is unplugg the ribbon like cable, clean out the connectors and plug it back in. hope it helps.

Zedmanauk is right. Just call to the number that they have over there, they'll send you a box to ship it and in 14 days you'll have your laptop like new

Have you tired running a Hard Drive regenerator program, it fixes any bad sectors on the Hard drive, but usually the computer won't start period if that is the case but still, you never know

Its your hard drive. I fix computers and come across this issue often. It is a hardware failure that is not fixable. You will have to replace the hard drive.

I did the catastorphic reboot of the system. Not only did I have to restart numerous times to update the updates, I still have the problem.
