Hi I have a HP G6000 laptop which won't boot. It will switch on for 2 seconds, goes off for 5 and then starts again. There is nothing on screen and it won't get to POST. I've tried with just the power supply, just the battery and using the power supply with the battery in. Anyone any ideas?

    But the battery is fully charged and the problem persists just with the battery installed.

I switch the power on power light comes on fan starts as if to boot then nothing, no screen and no keyboard lights

Does BIOS messages appear, or is the screen absolutely black?
If you see BIOS messages and then black screen, you should go to BIOS and choose your boot devices correctly. If there is no screen do the following tip:
1) Turn off the laptop.
2) remove the battery.
3) click and hold power button for about 30 seconds to discharge the circuit from motherboard.
4) then install the battery again
5) and click power button.

See what happens. In many cases it helps.
If there is still black screen, you should check your laptops RAM. In many cases removing and then installing back the RAM helps.

Hold down the power button until the laptop turns off. Wait 5 seconds and turn it on again. Do you see the slash screen as it powers up? Hopefully it will boot into the OS. If it's black the whole time, the video card may be dead. But if you do see a splash screen and it goes black after booting into the OS, you may have caught an infection. Try to boot into safe mode w/ networking and downloading scans to remove a possible infection. I use 3 scanners to remove infections. If the 3 do not clear it, the OS is hosed and needs to be wiped and reloaded. 3 scans: Combofix, SuperAntispyware and Malwarebytes. Good luck.

Hi my HP G6000 laptop wont turn on, when i press the power button on the lights flicker for a second and then nothing

1. Check your power cord & adapter.
2. If its working then check the battery, reseat the battery & check.
3. If available then check with another battery
4. If no, then remove the battery & switch on the PC in AC mode.
5. Check if battery charging indication or AC power on indication is glowing. if not then need to change ur motherboard.
6. If indication is OK, but could not power ON then check ur RAM for any loose connection or dust. clean & reinstall.
7. If still no display, connect an external monitor, check if display is comming.
8. If Display is coming then your LCD is faulty and need to replace.

HP G6000 laptop wont start

Extract your battery from your laptop for 12 min, then start your computer using your power cable (don't use your battery), if not try pressing F2 rapidly when opening, after you open your operating system try changing your graphics card drivers.

When laptop hp g6000 is switched on the screen says start window repair (recommended)when this is activated the screen just goes blank and nothing happens. Any advice would be gratful


to avoid this, you need to run system restore on your system.

Restart your system and press "F11"

The system will begin the restore after you press F11. Just follow instructions and your system would be restored.

take care.
