I just want to know if you see any power indicator on the machine? If you see any power indicator try to check if you hear any sound that it boots up to windows or try to check if there are any beeping sounds when you turn on the machine. If you hear the windows boot up sound try to use external monitor and see if the machine gives any display. If you hear consecutive beeping sound it means there are hardware that's faulty inside the machine.
Considering the age of the computer it would be cheaper to replace than buy a new board.
If you look on the label with the serial number,could youpost back the following?
Service Tag # right above the length of the warranty.
Part # right above the HP logo/Service Tag
Full Model # is there anything after dv6000 like letters or numbers?
I ask because I want to try and find a used board to compare the cost.
Hi HotOlds, you did not hurt the motherboard. You did not install the memory correctly. Take the old memory & look at the contacts on the DIMM. There is a notch there & a notch in the memory slot. These two notches must be matched up when inserted. Each memory slot has a locking tab at each end of the slot. When you insert the memory correctly the locking tabs snap closed ensuring the memory will not come out. The beeps you are hearing are telling you the memory is not seated correctly. Same for the memory you bought. However, the memory you did buy must match the memory for the Pavilion A635W. This link will show memory you can use for the Pavilion A635W motherboard. http://www.google.com/products?hl=en&q=HP+Pavilion+A635W+memory&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=X&oi=product_result_group&resnum=1&ct=title (Buying a new board). The link you have posted for the ECS Gf6100-M754 MB. Will not take the memory you currently have. You will have to buy DDR3 memory but that is not the main issue. If you intend to put this motherboard into the Pavilion case it may not fit. Measure the board in the HP & check the dimensions of the ECS board you want to buy. You will have to buy a new CPU as well. The HP uses an AMD CPU & the ECS uses an Intel CPU. Basically you will be buying a whole new system including the CPU & memory, which may not fit in the HP case. You will also need a higher power supply to run the ECS board. HP's power supplies are much smaller.
I will not be online here at fixya for the next week or so.
