    Dear savageinjun,
    I did shut the computer down for the night. I went to start and shut windows down. At that time all was running fine. My children were playing games the next evening and the screen went black, it would not respond to any of my attempts to restart so I unplugged it and took the battery out in hopes that it would reset. Now it comes on and then shuts itself down. Windows does not attempt to boot. I'm using Vista if that may help.
    thank you, morningstar

    this could be due to a number of reasons..bad ram..corrupt bios..dead hard need of new psu(power supply unit)..old age..hahahaha..kidding on last one...only trying to make light of your situation..:)..ok..first off..was it running normally before you shut it down for the night( or whatever reason) did you mess with the registry?? virus infection?? hardware change (new graphics card/new ram/etc) ?? what were you doing before you shut it off..or did it just shut down on its own(again,,what were you doing) and no longer powers back up?? there is always a reason and an answer to your question..i just need more information..i can't just tell you to open it up and take a screwdriver and tap on something inside your comp in hope that it will magically boot up. please..details thanks and then i'm sure i'll be able to help you fix it over the net. never ever let anyone "repair" your computer thru "remote/secondary logon" as you might as well open your door, put on a blindfold and tell everyone to come in and do what they want all the while you are blindfolded. waiting for your reply. :)...savageinjun?®

How do i get my headphone working on my compaq v6000

Double-click the "sound" icon at bottom-right of the computer screen.
Check that the speakers are not "muted".
If the speakers require power, make sure that they are powered-on.
Turn up the volume on the speake itself.
Using the "sound control", increase the sound-level going to the headphones.

My laptop compaq presario v6000 does not switch on but the power light comes on when the chager is on. when i try to turn the computer on it just flick the light on then back off. can anyone yep me to

The DC pin on your laptop is bent/broken/loose. Look at where your power adapter plugs in on your laptop. Get a paper clip, bend it out to make a long paper clip and slightly push its tip on the pin inside your laptop. If the pin moves chances are either the DC pin needs to be soldered down or needs to be replaced. The part is usually cheap around $10 but the labor can cost more than $50.

Compaq Presario V6000 not turning/powering on

This can be a tricky problem indeed. As a matter of fact, I'm experiencing a similar problem myself. I don't know if you have done this or not so I'm going to throw it out there:

Have you tried plugging it into a charger and starting it? If so, how about without the battery?

Also, if the laptop isn't charging, check to see if the charger is faulty. The end could be bent, or something inside could simply not be working.

The most likely problem if none of these help is that the port itself is shot. In that case, you'll have to take it to a computer shop and have them diagnose it for you just to be sure.

Hope I was of assistance.

I need for my compaq presario v6000.

You can get the wireless drivers in the laptop itself. U need to type in the start search as recovery manager and when the window is opened, click on the advanced options and select the option hardware driver installation. Search for the sound driver and select it and it get re-installed. If this doesnt work try to go to and select support and drivers and enter the product number of the laptop and follow the onscreen instructions.
Thanks and Regards

Compaq presario v6000 laptop powering down with no warning

If not, then the keyboard cable has probably come loose.
Look for some way to remove the keyboard. Sometimes a screw from underneath, sometimes two or three small catches at front of keyboard (small gaps in metal plate in front of space bar). Sometimes top plastic bar above keyboard slides sideways.

Keyboard cable uses goes into a header socket - to refit:
Switch off and remove battery and power first!
1. Prise up each end of the socket with a blunt knife - the outer part of the socket should move up a few mm
2. Push keyboard cable down fully
3. Push down each end of the header socket so it is flush with the lower part of the socket.
4. Test keyboard
