Try removing the battery (instructions in your manual). Now run the computer with just the new charger. Does this work? Try holding down the power button for 10-20 seconds.

Won't turn on

Dealing with overseas tech support people can be frustrating. If the laptop is only a few days old, you really need to contact them first.

Im sure its still covered under warranty, so start there first.
If it wont boot, it could be a number of things.
If you get no where with them, please post back and someone here will try to help.

Laptop shuting down and beeping

Forget about calling HP. Unless you recently purchased it, the warranty is already out. There's a known motherboard problem that HP will warranty ONLY if it's a few months old. Check their website or call if you have half a day to waste. Sorry for being negative, but in reality, there's not much hope.

Here's a "fun option" that has worked for some:
1. Power down the laptop.
2. Unplug the AC cord.
3. Remove the battery.
4. Plug the AC cord in again.
5. Push and hold the power on button for 30-40 seconds.
6. IF it boots up, install the battery and you're good to go.

They say this procedure removes static electricity. Actually, it's a sign of the motherboard going out. Days are numbered. Back up all data files when/if you can.

Cant turn my built in webcam on??


This is known Webcam issue in DV6000 notebooks. To resolve or narrow down the issue, we have to check few things.

First open Device Manager.

Please follow these steps to open Device Manager:

1. Right Click on 'My Computer' icon on Desktop and choose Properties.
2. The System properties Window opens.
3. Click Hardware tab and then click the Device Manager button.

Expand + Imagining Devices and check if the HP Webcam is listed under it.

If Webcam is not listed there, then you have to contact HP to get the BIOS update.

If it is listed there, right click on it and select Disable. Again right click on it and select Enable.

Now open any applications like Quickplay and check if Webcam is working or not.

Please reply me if that won't resolve the issue, I can provide more work arounds

My laptop doesnt turn on at all or do anything - help

Well, smoke is never a good sign.
Tell me, the 'something banged' thing, could that have been the laptop was being moved and the power cord was jerked at the connection to the laptop?
These are very prone to have problems with the ac jack coming loose from the motherboard (I have 3 in the shop right now with the same problem)
If you can, check and see if it's getting juice to the battery when plugged in using a multimeter.
Good luck
