My hp Pavillion dv6000 looks like it wants to turn on but turns itself back off after a min or two. It does this process over and over without turning on.


Unplug AC & battery. Then, unplug the cell battery right at the memory compartment (wait for at least 10 min).
Plug everything back in. Laptop should be back to normal.

It works for me.

How to enable bluetooth on hp pavillion laptop


Hey there,

If your particular model of HP has the bluetooth installed from the factory, turning on the wireless switch on the front left edge of the laptop enables the bluetooth, as well as the wireless LAN. A bluetooth icon should appear in your taskbar, near the clock, when bluetooth is turned on. Most of the cheaper versions of the DV6000 series do not come with the bluetooth module installed. The module can be ordered from HP Parts and installed by the end user, if they have a little computer know how. You would then download and install the bluetooth software pack that is available on HP's support website.

Hope this will help to resolve your issue with Bluethooth..

Cheers!!!!!

Not able to Access internet from HP Laptop


I have had the same problem. If yours is like mine you will be able to access internet via the wired LAN connection, but the wireless card will completely have disappeared from device manager and the hp wireless assistant.

Are you aware that this is a known fault with the hp dv6000 series laptops? I bought mine in Dec 2006 and had it repaired for this fault, within warranty, about 11 months later. Since then I have noticed hp has extended the standard warranty for an extra year BUT ONLY for this particular problem. If you search for your model on the hp website it will tell you (by serial number) if your model qualifies for this special extended warranty program.

It doesn't seem there is a pemanent fix for this fault, because hp replaced my wireless card AND motherboard the first time round, and I have just started experiencing the same fault again!! I am hoping hp will still repair mine, for a second time, as I am just within the two years. Note that another symptom listed under the same fault is: no or intermittent display on the screen, which I have just started also getting and is much more of a bummer - so I'd recommend you get yours fixed before that happens.

As to the cause - I have just taken mine to a repair shop in Tottenham Court Road for a 2nd opinion and they say they get dozens of these every week, some out of warranty. Apparently when hp switched from the intel to the nvidia chipset for the graphics it started happening. Basically the nvidia runs very hot and the laptop's fan can't cool it down fast enough. It has probably fried part of your motherboard affecting the wireless and if you're unlucky the display may be next to go.

The chap also mentioned that the heat also warps the tacky plastic they use for the buttons at the top of the keyboard so these sometimes malfunction as well. For instance, you might find applications randomly starting from the 'quick launch' pad without you doing anything.

The verdict: I wouldn't buy hp again. This has really put me off!

Good luck.

I have an HP Pavillion dv9000, but they are similar.

Now if you are moving the Wireless switch on and off and the light stays red on both sides you probably have a dud of a wireless card. I had the same issue with mine at one point, what I did was get a hold of tech support, they mailed me a box with a prepaid shipping label to send them my laptop. They put in a new wireless card and shipped it back for free(of course it was still under warranty).

If you recently purchased this laptop you can usually log onto www.HP.com, go to the support section and do the chat with an HP tech or call 800-HP invent or 800-474-6836 24/7 and they will walk you thru the whole process.

But again just from your description, you have a dead air card. Call or online hp and have them fix it for you, especially if its still under warranty. If its not under warranty, then hit me back and i can give you a step by step on how to open up the laptop yourself and replace the card

Problem in my wirless (hp pavillion dv6000)


I agree. Need more info. Is there a driver loaded for your wi-fi? Is it on??? There is usually a switch for your wireless in the form of a pushbutton or slide switch somewhere on the unit. Make sure it is powered on first.
