Hp pavilion dv6633 won't start. Light up, then
Sorry to here about your DV6633 start up problems.
1st. It would be good to know any other problems you may have had in the past either related or non related to you current problems..
I take it you are running with a charged battery? and the unit has not been dropped lately.?
2nd. If you are receiving a charge light on the front left of cover, your battery is charging and your power supply is in working condition.
3rd. I would remove any media from the CD/DVD and disconnect battery and with incoming power from supply.
4th. Flip unit over and remove the large Black cover, where you will find the Memory and CMOS Battery.
5ft. Carefully remove memory setting them side from contact with other components.
6st. Disconnect CMOS Battery found at the top right of memory. This is the battery backup for memory, system time and date and other features. This with have a white connector which connects to the board.
7th. Flip unit over and open case cover, hold down the power button for at least 30 seconds.
release the power button and close case. Flip back over to bottom again.
8th. Reinstall the CMOS Battery Connector, memory, cover.
9th. and last of all the Smaller Black Cover just to the left is where your Hard Drive is located.
remove the two screws and cover, on the Top of the Hard Drive you should see a Plastic Pull Tab to remove the Hard Drive.
Remove the drive carefully it is frag-il. Re-seat the drive and re-install cover.
Turn the unit over, re-install the battery, plug it in an turn it on.
Pressing the F-10 key will enter the BIOS setting, here you can change the time and date.
Note if you have not been prompted to change Time and Date, you did not remove CMOS battery.
If the unit will run in the BIOS setup, your problem is more than likely software related.
You should have a Utility for checking Hard Drive which in most cases takes about 1-hour, unless you have a failed hard drive, this will show in most cases within the first five minutes because the boot sector is the first and last to be checked by the utility.
If all checks OK you may want to reload your firm and software to factory specs.
This can be done buy hitting the F-7 Key at the start up. ( That is, if you haven't deleted the recovery partition.)
Good luck, keep the unit off the carpet and Bed as it will not vent or cool properly.
