Question about HP Compaq Presario V6000T Notebook
I have a Presario 6000. For no apparent reason it died. Now when I turn it on, 1 of 3 things happen, #1 it may boot up and run perfectly for varying lengths of time, #2 it turns on, begins to boot up but freezes on the COMPAQ screen, or #3 it begins to beep and the screen immediately goes into sleep mode. I have replaced the memory card as recommended by a friend, didn't solve the problem. Any ideas?
Im wondering if the hard drive is beginning to go bad, that would cause lockups and also cause it to hang on the compaq logo screen.
It could also be the start of the motherboard going bad. Take your hard drive out, put a good known working one in there and with your discs, restore your laptop with the known good working hard drive and then see what happens, if the lockups are still happening then you know the motherboard is going bad.

I hate to bring bad news to any computer user, but it sounds like a bad video chip to me. With rare exception, this part is easier to replace by replacing the entire motherboard. There are some exceptions to this.
Under the memory chip, there should be a sticker with specific part information. If you use this information, and search Ebay, you can sometimes find the pros who repair these things. I have had success with such repairs on two out of three attempts in recent years.
If you choose this route, find the one with a phone number and call them first. If you cannot get a tech on the phone, or at least customer service on the phone, then you'll want to stay away from them.
