Question about HP Pavilion dv1000 Notebook
When I switch my laptop the lights show but no display on screen
Video circuit failure is well known on the DV6K Series.. Weve repaired a few and HP is offering extension to warranty for this issue. If they refuse to repair contact us back.

Recently i encountered problem with hp dv6000 laptop to be cleaned up from viruses. after successfully doing said task i reboot the unit and it was okay! i kept the unit for several days until the client get. several hours later the client bring back the unit complaining that the unit won't boot-up! to my surprise i checked the unit and truly it won't... indicators suggest a big problem ahead: all lights was on, no display on lcd and external. no beep sound or what so ever. i checked the hp site for possible hint to found that said model was included on the models that are noted with hardware / bios drawbacks that's why hp extends its warranty for another 1 year after the first yr warranty. disparately i tried some possible solution but no to avail. then suddenly i thought of REMOVING THE CMOS BATTERY in order to reset the cmos settings, after 10 minutes or so that i disconnected the battery i placed it back. Boot-up the system then i heard a BEEP! my client was happy ever after! ^_^

What did it for me is reseeding memory chips. I unplugged, took the battery out, held the power button for 15-20 seconds to drain any residual power. Reseeded the memory chips and back in businesses.

I was also having this problem, getting gradually worse. The best possible solutions I could find were
1) update the BIOS
2) try without the battery
I updated the BIOS first, but then the computer went into a boot-loop where it would try to start, then shut off, and repeat endlessly. Thus the BIOS fix was not the best solution.
I was finally able to get into safe mode to get it to boot normally, which allowed me to try solution 2... running without the battery.
This solution worked perfectly.
I wanted to post this here for all the others who have also had this frustrating problem and had difficulty finding a solution. My original battery thus lasted about a year, because I've had the computer 18 months, and this started occurring about 6 months ago.
It's been a wonderful laptop other than that, and one additional thing... the wi-fi switch seems to have stopped working... but that's another story.

This is a known problem with certain HP and Compaq laptops. Check out the link below to see if you qualify for the free service enhancement program. The same thing happened to me and HP is sending me a postage paid box to mail my laptop to them and they are going to fix it and mail it back.

I have the same case with my laptop. I heard that if you run it with the battery out it could fix it! Try it I have not yet!
