Remove battery and leave off for about five minutes. remove power cord as well. replace and try to start. if it does the same thing there must be a problem with your motherboard.. I had the same issue, but with sony vaio. i had to remove the motherboard and resolder the main chasis grounds hoping i had a cold solder condition. It worked. situation may be a bit different, but if removing the battery doesn't work for you, you may need to try that. complicated if you've never done it before.

Try removing the memory Dimms and see if it shows post screen. If that does not work then try removing the hard drive and cd-rom drive. The computer BIOS should still show video on the computer with these components removed. If still nothing then try resetting the cmos for the Bios by using the jumper pins or removing the watch battery for about 20 seconds then re-install. After that if the computer still does not start then the laptop motherboard is probably bad.

Compaq presario v6000 computer does not detect hard drive storage


The hard disk may be faulty or it just needs reseating to make proper connection.
Reseat the hard drive and boot up your laptop. If it does not boot up then go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive.
If the BIOS deos not detect the hard drive then most likely it is faulty. In this case to get your laptop working again, replace the hard drive and install Windows on the new hard drive plus the Presario's device drivers and your programs.

Hello! Daniel Busa here with Dish Network customer service. The blue light simply means tv2 is up and running, you need to get the green light on. If it's still down hit th sat then power. If that doesnt work, hit the channel up button on the box system info should appear hit record three times, and then select, then power and it should start running again.

V6000 won't start back up


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.

Compaq Presario V6000 rebooting blank screen


I am almost sure that it is a motherboard. When all of the lights stay solid and it seems to start, but shuts off is most likely the motherboard. You can save the data if you get a proper enclosure for the hard drive. You can call Compaq support to make sure that those signs are the motherboard.

Compaq Presario V6000, keeps rebooting, blank screen, and no post beeps. Replaced ram, battery, and power adapter. There is no hard drive light. I think it is a hardware problem, because it will not boot...


If your pc reboots just after post my first place to look is to reseat the hard drive and see if that makes a difference. If it doesnt you could try and repairing your windows operating system or doing a system restore. If the os loads sucessfully then i would say you had a corrupt boot file maybe from a virus or a failing hard drive. I hope this helps

I unplug my hard drive and now I cant get my computer to start up


Try switching your power cable with te one from another pc, if that doesnt help check wether the on/off button on your power supply is turned on. If that doesnt help either I'll need more info about what those lights indicate.
