Question about Compaq Presario X6000 Notebook
Sounds like your heat sink and fan are clogged up with lint and dust. Very common problem but no so easy to resolve if you have never disassembled one. 1st thing to do is shine a flashlight at the fan area. Do you see thru it or does it look obstructed from dust? Before going inside the laptop you can try a vacume and or a can of pressurized air to clear the fins of the heat sink. If it still overheats you need to open the laptop and clean it out. Here is your repair manual. http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c00778754.pdf
section 5.19 refers to the fans and disassembly instructions. Good luck! Phil. P.S. The fans are on the bottom so if you have it in your lap or on a table it will overheat from lack of air. Set the laptop on two books spread apart to see if it works. If this works buy a laptop cooling pad they work great.

Ok so power adapter has been ruled out as the problem.
lets rule out the battery pack as the next usual suspect. simply deattach the battery and plug the computer to the ac with the adapter and see if the computer turns on. if it does, replace the battery
do you get any beep codes by any chance? do you see any lights on the computer itself?
how do you know that it overheated? did you see smoke? where you watching the movie while the bottom of the computer was not being ventilated?
if no lights come on your problem is more serious as it could be the a blown capacitor in your motherboard or a loose power adapter (which a computer repairshop /electrician could replace or resold for you for a fee) or the cpu that has gone out in which case means you need to replace your computer and sell the laptop for parts in kijiji.
