    I bought the dv6000 hp pavillion laptop in Dec.07, one year later exactly the motherboard went out, hp fixed it with no questions asked..I thought hp was great for doing that, they gave me an extended warranty for 24 mths. 4 mths later motherboard went out again, sent it in to hp, hp called back and said I used a 3rd party adapter, (which was true but they would not honor the warranty, the adapter was the same adapter I sent in the 1st time, I bought it from radioshack and didnt realize it would void my warranty,) I have read about hp doing this to sooo many people, these motherboards arent any good and I'm just trying to find out which way to go, can I fix it at a reasonable price or am I just screwed? Is it worth anything with a bad motherboard or am I out $800.00???

Describe your HP Pavilion dv6000z 15.4" Notebook Laptop PC (AMD Turion 64 X2 Duo Core TL-50 1.60GHz, 1GB RAM, 100G... (d6000z) PC Notebook Problem SCREEN WONT TURN ON LED LIGHTS OF POWER BUTTON...

The dv6000 series was commonly affected by the video card heating up and reseating itself. This was usually a soldering issue. You have a few options, You can either replace the motherboard, or have the motherboard reflowed. Unfortunately the video card itself is not detachable or individually replaceable.

I personally would recommend the second option as purchasing another dv6000 board will likely end you up in the same situation a year or 2 later.

Hope this helps.

Contact your local junkyard. But the best and possibly less expensive option is to have the dealership repair the door. Thanks for asking!

There is NO CHEAP repair, oil and water will mix and look like chocolate or pink pudding then you will seize your engine when you go to start it. Don't start it and either have it towed and repaired at the cost of over $1000.00 or junk it.

HP Pavilion dv6000 plugged in not charging, I have a new battery.....PLZ Help.

Its the DC charging jack that you plug the charger into on one of the sides of the laptop. Do a google search, go and search for "HP dv6000 DC jack problem charging" (leave out the quotes) and you will see this is a common issue with the dv6000 and laptops in general. Many will just replace the whole laptop motherboard as the DC jack is attached to the board. If you know what you're doing, you change out the jack, quick repair job and keep your own board, but fixed. I would fix it if it were mine. You may be able to find someone local online but if you need someone to do the repair, I'm in the repair directory, as are many others qualified.

Note: It may come to a point, or the situation may just fit better to replace the entire board instead of the port alone. This is usually when the jack is not seated and easily replaceable, or if you are under warranty, HP will replace the whole board.
