Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
Hmm. The most common cause would be a battery that's not recharged. This could happen if the power supply you plug into the wall has blown an internal fuse. When plugged in, before turning the laptop on, there should be an indicator light showing that there's power coming to the unit (and another indicating the battery is charging, if it's not already fully charged). You might try borrowing somebody's compatible power supply to check this (most laptops charge with about 18 volts, DC). Replacement compatible power supplies can usually be had pretty cheap by checking on Froogle or the like.
Other possibilities are pretty ugly. Like a BIOS setting got changed to something incompatible with your hardware (pressing F1 or maybe Esc or Del when turning on the unit would get you to the BIOS settings). Or a memory chip got fried. Or the CPU chip is overheating because its gotten a little loose from its heatsink. Or the hard drive has developed a bad sector or corrupted data where the boot sector is located. Describing exactly what appears on the screen (and any peculiar beeps) during the few seconds its on could help sort out these possibilities, but you'd likely need an in-person geek to fix any of these possibilities.
