HP dv6000 Laptop screen only starts up 1/4th of the time
I've had many problems with this computer and now there are 3 different things happening when I try to turn the computer on.
#1 - Screen stays blank with all running lights on and beeps 3 times. One long beep and two short ones.
#2 - HP logo and such will show up but it will reset just before loading windows and then the computer will restart with a blank screen a few times.
#3 - Screen stays blank with all the keyboard lights on and just resets a whole bunch of times. You can hear everything starting up, the disk drive and the fan and so forth but it just resets over and over.
The weirdest thing is, is that the computer will start up perfectly sometimes without any problem what so ever. I've seen about 60 different things people think is wrong with it but everyone only has one of the problems I have and not three.

I hate to inform you but the graphics chip in these laptops are known for doing this. HP is aware of that. Every time some one brings me a Hp Dv6000 laptop about 75% of the problem is the system board or overheating issues.
First try cleaning the laptop screen with laptop screen cleaner
if its still blurry connect a external monitor to your laptop to see if the display is blurry on the external monitor (to get to toggle the video from your laptop you will have to press the Fn key + F4)
If its still blurry then its the graphics card or chip needs to be replaced. They are all integrated with the system board / mother board.
If its clear and images are good then the laptop screen will need to be replaced. hope that helps.
Common issue on HP dv6000. You will need to get to the GUP and reflow it with a heatgun. Try this hp pavilion repair guide. It contains step by step instructions on how to take apart the system and fix the issue with the video. www.msbin.com/hp
From what you are describing, the motherboard has failed. I would however like you to try a couple of things though. First remove the hard drive and see if the computer will go to the BIOS screen. If it does not, then the Motherboard has definately died. If you can get to the BIOS, then you might consider a hard drive failure, or your windows installation is so corrupt, it is causing this problem. I would however lean toward a bad MOBO....seems this model, the DV6000 and the DV9000 have serious cooling issues and tend to burn their mobos up. HP recently started updating the BIOS files for these models so the fans and processor run more efficiently to keep the laptop cooler.
Solution for HP Pavilion DV6000 Battery Not Charge
Reinstalling the power management software has just fixed it for me. Go to device manager and under batteries, unistall the Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery. Go to Actions on the menu bar and select ’scan for hardware changes’. It will reinstall it and hopefully start charging immediately (mine did anyway).
If your HP Pavillion dv6000 has a battery that won’t charge yet still turns on when plugged in, turn off the laptop and remove the battery then wait for around 30 seconds, re-insert it and turn it back on, the charging update should say, plugged in, charging.
Just got it to charge again.While the laptop is powered and in Windows XP, press and hold the POWER button until it dies. Then, remove the dv6000 laptop battery. Power it back up and enter Windows. Then, re-insert the battery.
So I always remove the Hp dv6000 battery after I have powered down the laptop, and I have not had any battery problems since then!
I had the same issue my fix was a new cmos battery that was only $10.00 and install updated bios software from HP
I had the dv6000 battery problem where it showed my battery NOT CHARGING. I took it apart because my QUICKPLAY would not work either and the QUICKPLAY lights stayed on even after I shut down the laptop. I found that the black ribbon cable on the right (the other looks the same but you can see it is for the power button) was slightly kiltered in the flat socket it goes to underneath the area where the quickplay button is. I straightened it out and made sure it was pushed all the way in and locked and put it all back together and everything worked perfectly after that. About a month before that my POWER and SOUND didn`t work. I did the same thing to fix those problems. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THOSE CABLES EXACTLY RIGHT in there, IT MAY JUST BE YOUR PROBLEM TOO.
Some people dont realise that you should avoid short charges and discharges, if your batery does not go above 40% mabe its charge memory thinks its full. to fix this problem let the batery run fully down, then charge it all the way again. try it a few times if it doesnt work. and you have to go all the way, not let windows go into hibernation. to do that you need to get the batery low, then boot to some boot disk and let it sit till the batery dies.
HP has posted BIOS updates to address battery problems as well as the auto startup on some.If you will post the full model number,someone can help you find your driver/updates page.
Sounds like you have a lot of spyware and malware. Anti-spyware software (such as SpyBot) and antimalware software 9such as Malwarebytes) may not ultimately help, but it's worth a try. I really think that you will need to completely reinstall Windows. Use the CD that came with your system, as it has all your drivers. Let us know if you need help to reinstall. Good luck.
if you are wanting to connect ur laptop to an external display then you have to go the control panel, then display properties and change the resolution since ur laptop screen's resolution and external display's resolution might be different. most of the computers with vista automatically adjust that but in xp, u might have to do it yourself.
Pls check if the connections are proper and if the monitor is turned on.
Once you have checked the above thing, if the screen still doesnt come on, then the monitor has to be serviced or you may try connecting another cable from the monitor to the computer.
