V6000 won't start back up

My daughter's compaq V6000 laptop turned off on its own (as it usually does), but now it won't restart. Checked the battery on my computer, and it works fine, same with plug-in. When I push the power button, it lights up for a second, then nothing. She mostly uses the computer to go on Webkinz world and other kids sites for homework, etc. Any ideas?

If the computer is not even showing the splash screen you have a hardware failure or a corrupted BIOS. The first things to try are reseating the memory and other components (hard drive, optical drive, battery again, etc.). If it still will not start and you are very computer savvy, go over to hp.com and see if your unit is capable of flashing the BIOS from a USB drive. If it is not you are probably going to require a computer repair shop.

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.

I have Compaq V6000 series laptop with AMD Processor & nvidia graphic card ,my laptop?s lower half of screen becomes blurred & will become ok after some adjustments & again become blurred when...


There was a TSB about the motherboards on the V series describing severe video issues and Nvidia GPU failures. Many consumers got a motherboard replacement. Try using a laptop cooler in the meantime and see if that helps a little. Also try googling V6000 video and see how many others got nuked by this poor design.

Compaq presario v6000 laptop plugged in but not chargin


YOU NEED TO RECALIBRATE YOUR BATTERY. FIRST UNPLUG THE POWER CORD AND LET YOUR BATTERY RUN ALL THE WAY DOWN TO 5%. THEN PLUG YOUR POWER CORD BACK UP AND LET IT RE-CHARGE THE COMPUTER. SOMETIMES WHEN YOU FREQUENTLY UNPLUG YOUR AC ADAPTER YOUR BATTERY FORGETS HOW MUCH POWER IS ACTUALLY AVAILABLE IN CONJUNCTION TO WHAT THE BATTERY METER IS SHOWING. RECALIBRATING THE BATTERY WILL RE-SET THE METER WITH THE BATTERY.

Need audio driver of compaq presario V6000


usually all drivers for Compaq and HP computer systems (portable and non-portable) can be found on the HP support website (Click here to go to it), simply go there, chose your region, than your country, enter your model number (not the series, the model number, you would usually find it on the service tag, or wherever you would find a serial number), but be sure to chose "Download drivers and software (and firmware)", and than chose your operating system.

Cannot get laptop back on


Try removing the battery and using just the power adapter, some laptops wont power on if the battery is bad.

Try hitting F1 as you start it and see if you can get into the bios and reset everything to defaults.

then restart it and see.
