You might have a hard drive crash, Meaning the hard drive needs to be changed out in it.
This happends over time,heat,AGE and all other sorts of occurances. Hard drives to not last! period! The only fix here is to have the hard drive replaced with new. Now in this model the hard drive should be on the bottem of the unit under a cover. you take a screw driver and open that hatch and take the hard drive out. You can bring that to a local best buy or computer shop and have a replacement put in Around $89-150 bucks depending on size you get and brand.
Thanks I hope this helps you out please do be considerate and leave postive feedback and ratings for your free answer today.

SOURCE: HP dv6-2110 won't boot up-
If the battery of the HP laptop is not in a good condition, sometimes booting problems might happen. To remove any static charges accumulated in the battery, you would have to remove the battery and press the Power button for about 25-35 seconds. Then reset the battery. Even after this, if your laptop is not booting up then you could perform the battery calibration and press F8 key to boot in safe mode.
