Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I just got an HP Pavilion DV6000 laptop. When I turn it on all the lights come on, I can hear the hard drive spin up and the CD-ROM also makes a noise. I watch it and then the lights go out for a couple seconds then they come back on and the hard drive spins back up again and the CD-ROM makes a noise and after a minute or a little less the whole things happens again just as if it is in a boot loop. The main problem is that the screen is totally black. There is no ghost image as if the back-light went out, it is totally black. I tried removing items from the laptop such as the battery, RAM, HD, stc and tried booting it up eliminating something causing this problem but there was no change. I reinstalled everything and then hooked up an external LCD monitor to the laptop. I pressed the FN and F4 key that would allow me to use an external monitor and I do not even get a handshake between the laptop and the monitor. The light on the monitor stays orange instead of turning green. I have ruled out a bad back-light. What I would like to find out is could it be the motherboard that is causing the problem or could it be the inverter for the back-light and how can I test it to find out which one it might be?

    Sorry for the generalization. I just got the laptop 'used' it would be nice if it was under warranty but, no, there is no warranty. I just do not want to order parts and then find out that I have ordered the wrong part. Wasn't sure how to tell between a bad inverter or a problem with the motherboard. If I had a bad inverter for the back-light I would still be able to see an image on the external monitor, is that correct? If not then how do I determine which part is probably bad and which one to order? Thanks for your quick response.

It sounds like a video issue which is part of the motherboard on these laptops. You say you just got it. Is it under warranty? Check that at htis link. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/weInput?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&docname=c01519032&product=1842155.

This should be taken in for service.

How to Disassemble an HP Pavilion DV6000


The HP Pavilion DV6000 is one in a popular line of consumer-oriented laptops produced by HP. Relatively inexpensive, the Pavilion DV6000 is a good all-around value for most users. Taking apart an HP Pavilion DV6000 is not an easy chore and if you plan to use the laptop again, it is important you know what you are doing or you have a large appetite for risk. If the above doesn’t describe you, consider taking the HP in for professional repair or upgrade. Otherwise, follow the steps below to disassemble the HP Pavilion DV6000.
18385245_1.jpg?w=200 1、Prepare a clear workstation. Turn off the laptop and remove all power components including the cord and the battery. (Turn the laptop over and you will find the tab to push and pop out the dv6000 battery.) Also remove any peripheral attachments like card readers and USB devices.

3、Remove the hard drive and memory modules by pulling up on the rectangular compartments. The memory is located in the central compartment (remove by spreading latches and pulling up), and in most HP models the hard drive is located to one side.
4、Remove the optical CD/DVD drive by pulling on the drive face to the left and out of the laptop. Remove the WiFi card by disconnecting the gold connectors on the antenna and pulling the card from its slot.
5、Turn the hp dv6000 back over and remove the keyboard and power panel/media touch pad. Carefully pry the power panel up with a piece of hard plastic near the power button on the left side. Be careful when pulling not to yank the power connection as you might accidentally rip out a wire. Pull back the keyboard to reveal the connections. Disconnect the connections by carefully pulling on the tabs with your thumb and forefinger. If they are tight, wiggle them back and forth while pulling on them to loosen them.
6、Remove the screws that were underneath the power pack/media touch pad. Carefully pry up the top casing and set it aside.
7、Detach all visible connections to the motherboard by pulling gently on them, wiggling them if they are stuck. Gently pull up from the right side of the motherboard and remove. The HP laptop is now fully disassembled.

Newer HP Pavilion dv6000 turned off while in use and wont turn on


1.Start your computer and see if your hear your fan noise,and cannot see anything on screen then there is problem with your power supply.

2.If you cannot hear your fan noise,and do not see anything on screen,then there is problem with your motherboard

3.if you hear fan noise and can see something on screen,then it is the issue with your hard disk (very less cases)

Mostly it would be the 2nd case that you will have to get your motherboard replaced

Laptop hp dv6000 will not recognize cd burner/dvd player


HP Pavilion dv6000 laptop PC
Did you 'turn off' the AUTOPLAY feature of the CD\DVD ? When the player "runs two times at startup", it is trying to find the program on the disc.2nd- Look in internet for HP dv6000 cd\dvd drive replacement.(If that is the ""exact match for the product"" you wrote about)
3rd.goto CONTROL PANEL>SYSTEM>HARDWARE>DEVICE MANAGER and look up cd\dvd and uninstall it. REBOOT, when your system comes back it will try to find the cd\dvd. If it does not, it is damaged (kaput!), must be replaced. If Windows finds the cd\dvd drive and reinstalls the drivers, but it does not work, then the heads are dirty or damaged.That Windows found the dvd\cd means that the circuit on the device works.

Start up


When you get this error, it is because the notebook is trying to boot from a server or from a network, which unfortunately means that your hd took a bath. When you start up your notebook, do you hear the hd spinning up? Do you see the icon on the front of the notebook for the hd light up? If you answer no to both of those questions, you will need a new hard drive.
