Click on the blue Down Arrow, to the right of - Please select OS
Click on the Operating System you are using.

In the list click on the + sign next to Chipset.

IF, you do not have a graphics card installed, you are using the Integrated Graphics of the motherboard.

The Integrated Graphics (OnBoard Graphics...Same/same), is in the Nvidia GeForce 7025 chipset.
The - Northbridge chip - of the Motherboard chipset.

Would like to ask one question?
What makes you think the Driver is going to fix your problem?
NOT, stating it won't Josephkate Sobrio, just asking.......

Something I would like to impart as the last statement.......

No Signal, or Power Saver Mode, or Sleep Mode; means the monitor is working. The computer is NOT.

[Also shows the monitor cable to be good. An often overlooked item]

"But LED's light, and fans spin? I think I hear the Harddrive spinning?"

Means NOTHING........

A) If ALL of the LED's were on at once, they would use less than 1 Watt of power. (Light Emitting Diode.......they ARE a light)

B) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts of power.

C) A typical CPU (Processor) can use 51 to 130 Watts of power.
Just depends on what Processor (CPU) it is.

A Power Supply with a weak voltage power rail, will have enough power to light those simpy LED's, and maybe spin fans; but will NOT have enough power to turn the Processor on.......

No Processor operating, no 'Brain'.
No 'Brain' operating, NO computer.
No computer, no display on monitor......

My Intel DG41WV mother board is not detecting USB devices after installing chipset driver.. the indicator light on USB devices remains on ... and now it's stuck with BIOS boot screen and no response......

just go to the bios, there´s a configuration that says : disable all usb ports. just enable it, and it should work. just make sure that the boot priority is in correct order after that.

I have a HP Pavilion dv6000 which has stopped working when i turn it on the blue lights come on and the fan starts up but only for a short while then the blue lights start to flash on and off but the...

I agree with net2005.

It is a video chip issue.

Video chip;

Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit.

Video and graphics chip mean the same thing.
It is a GPU.
Graphics Processing Unit.

The GPU for the HP Pavilion dv6000 series of Notebook PC's, is an Nvidia GeForce 9200M GS

This GPU chipset does Not have pins on the bottom, and does Not sit in a socket on the motherboard.

The mounting of the chipset to the motherboard, is a surface mount called BGA.
Ball Grid Array.

The bottom of the chipset has solder balls for it's contact pins.

The area on the motherboard has small copper pads, which line up with the chipset's solder balls.

The chipset is set into position on the copper pads, and heat is used to melt the solder balls, and solder the chipset to the motherboard.

For cooling inside a laptop (Notebook), there is a Fan, and a Heatsink Assembly.

A Heatsink is typically a plate of metal, with tall, thin fins protruding from it.

The plate absorbs heat from whatever object it is placed against, and the fins absorb the heat from the plate.

The fins then radiate the heat away.
The fan pushes air over, and in-between the fins, and helps to carry the heat away.

For a laptop the Heatsink is often made of copper. There is a tube that is filled with Nitrogen, and connects to the Heatsink.
> Cooling Tube.

On the end away from the Heatsink on the Cooling Tube, there is a plate.
This plate sits on top of the Processor.
>Fan/Heatsink Assembly

There is also be a plate on top of the GPU chipset, connected to the Cooling Tube.

The Processor and GPU chipset are the two hottest chipsets operating inside a computer.
Laptop or Desktop.

Because there is not enough cooling provided for the GPU chipset, it becomes so hot that it partially melts the solder connections, in the BGA surface mount.

Poor connections to the GPU chipset, is what you are seeing with your laptop.

Here is a video on Youtube describing one solution to fix the problem.
It also states that there is a recall from HP.
(I would use a Heatgun instead of a torch)

To add:

1) With the heat involved inside a laptop the Thermal Paste often dries up.
Sometimes there was no Thermal Paste applied to the top of the GPU chipset, from the factory.

The Thermal Paste on the top of the Processor (Case), and the Thermal Paste on top of the GPU chipset, should ALWAYS be removed, and replaced when the Fan/Heatsink Assembly is removed.

Thermal Paste is cheap. It's a GOOD idea to replace it.
Need to know the CORRECT procedure, please state in a Comment.

2) ALWAYS follow Anti-Static Precautions when working on a laptop.

Suggest you buy, and wear an ESD wrist strap, and connect the alligator clip to a good ground source

3) Use a multi-compartment container for the various screws you will remove.
Mark each compartment for the area the screws come out of.
DO NOT mix them up!

4) Make notes and drawings as you disassemble.
It's nice to have a record to refer back to, in case you get interrupted.

No, it won't, as the power is needed by the CPU. Your power supply is faulty, replace it and try again.

System will not start up. Cpu fan spins once, then nothing.

It is more than likely that when your old power supply died a death, it damaged some components on the motherboard. Replace the Motherboard and chip, and you should be back in business. You can pick up some good value bundles to save money on buying the parts seperately. The power supply working again after turning off and on, is because there is a little trip in the power supply that triggers when it detects a fault. Powering down resets that trip allowing it to try and work again.

possible cause: 1.low supply of voltage try checking your Power Supply Unit(PSU). try to swap with a different good PSU. 2.Defective/burned Motherboard, check for any bloated Capacitors or burned chips...
