Takes a long time to boot, reseting the power led and the fan before it would turn on. once in a while it would turn on right a away. some times it won't turn on, unless you turn the power off and try again. the problem is before you see bios, so mostly i woulod get a black screen with led lights blinking or reseting; trying to start up i think, when you see the HP splash page ort bios then that is a gurantee it will boot up.
When the notebook is in windows not much problem, accept in hibernationm. it don't come back form it, i have to turn it off and then back on. can anyone help me, please.
I had a similar problem. You may want to attempt a hard reset on the unit first. This is simply remove power from the laptop. Remove the Battery. With all removed from the laptop...hold the power button down for one minute. Then release the power button. Plug in the battery first...then the power cord. Try powering the unit up again. This reset will not do anything but do a Hard reset on the machine. Sometimes static charge can build up on the motherboard...the PC will go into a sleep protection mode. This essentially wakes it up.
Not a software problem, neither because of 'evil windoze'. HP has accepted a critical hardware problem, you can find it here.. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/genericDocument?lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=1842155&lang=en&docname=c01087277
There is no solution other than take it to the nearest service center. You may get lucky if you keep it on for a long time, so that the BIOS comes up!
I had a similar problem. but finaly i can handle, sorry for my bad english , but im from Uruguay, so the laptop reboots over and over again and i remove the battery pressing the power botton, and to make things against win, ctrl-alt-sup too :), over one minute, then i put the battery again and the computer at last boot. My boss had the same problem, and the same hp pavilion dv6000, but he takes to service and after their tell him" it cost a new m.board (700 US$ ), but we can make a "superficial" fix and it will be only 146US$" .so he doit, :) , Thanks for the tip of the battery, it was a exelent methode.

Hi i am getting the same problem, the way i managed to fix this is to keep trying to get the laptop on it will come on eventually and reflash the bios then it should be fine but after a few days the problem came back so i'm not sure try resetting the bios also, reinstalling windows will not help at all as it is the bios wich is giving the problems not the operating system, the dv6000 uses pheonix bios so you can try and find a emergency flash recovery for the notebook

Done it myself, RAM should have booted up after reinstalling the RAM.
Need to check very close on the RAM slots and make sure the the one slot on the btton of the RAM stick is directly down into the slot guide as can be forced but end clip would not set.
If this does not solve your problem I would suggest resetting the CMOS of your computer as it may have locked it out, CMOS finds all devices installed on the mainboard and addresses them to prepare for boot.
I am sending you a link to the HP support manual page for your review for how to clear the bios and boot back up to reset the CMOS up again. You might have reset your time and Date.
Let me know if good to go or if you still cannot boot or have the "Orange" led.
Please go to the HP link below by coping and pasteing into your web browser. The LED listing and CMOS resetting is on page #2 on the right side of the Adobe PDF document..
Your Pavilion DV6000 laptop is the key to your productivity, which is why it is essential that it turns on when you need it. The DV6000 is lighter than comparable models from other brands, and has a large, sharp display. While it has plenty of processing power, the DV6000 can have normal boot problems as well as problems caused by faulty battery packs that were installed in some units. Attempt to troubleshoot the laptop and find out if the laptop is eligible for a new battery pack.
1.Hard reset your laptop if there is no life at all. Unplug all peripheral devices and remove the battery. Unplug the AC cable and press and hold the power button for at least 15 seconds to drain all power. Reconnect the AC cable and hit the power button. 2.Verify that the battery pack is on the recall list if the laptop powers up without it. Fill out the form on the battery pack recall website (http://bpr.hpordercenter.com/hbpr/). You will have to input the serial number of the battery pack as well as a location to ship the replacement battery if you are eligible. 3.Hold the AC cable where it plugs into the laptop and wiggle it while hitting the power button one time. LEDs that come on and off intermittently indicate a faulty power cable. Order a replacement power cable through HP or a third-party vendor. 4.Write down any visual or audio error codes such as LEDs blinking or unusual beeping. The error sequence will be helpful when talking to an HP support person.
Common issue on HP dv6000. You will need to get to the GUP and reflow it with a heatgun. Try this hp pavilion repair guide. It contains step by step instructions on how to take apart the system and fix the issue with the video. www.msbin.com/hp
besides the beeps which indicate a motherboard timing issue. There should be LED blinking codes given on the front LEDs. I will include the blink codes below, but lets try to at least get the system up and running. First, I would like you to remove the RAM sticks from the laptop and just reseat one stick back in the machine. Try to boot with that one stick, if it does not, try the other alone. There have been issues when reseating the ram or re-installing it have temp. fixed the issue. If it does reboot, go to the HP support site, put in your model number of your laptop and download and install an updated BIOS. Below are the blink codes that may narrow down the problem.....

Solution for HP Pavilion DV6000 Battery Not Charge
Reinstalling the power management software has just fixed it for me. Go to device manager and under batteries, unistall the Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery. Go to Actions on the menu bar and select ’scan for hardware changes’. It will reinstall it and hopefully start charging immediately (mine did anyway).
If your HP Pavillion dv6000 has a battery that won’t charge yet still turns on when plugged in, turn off the laptop and remove the battery then wait for around 30 seconds, re-insert it and turn it back on, the charging update should say, plugged in, charging.
Just got it to charge again.While the laptop is powered and in Windows XP, press and hold the POWER button until it dies. Then, remove the dv6000 laptop battery. Power it back up and enter Windows. Then, re-insert the battery.
So I always remove the Hp dv6000 battery after I have powered down the laptop, and I have not had any battery problems since then!
I had the same issue my fix was a new cmos battery that was only $10.00 and install updated bios software from HP
I had the dv6000 battery problem where it showed my battery NOT CHARGING. I took it apart because my QUICKPLAY would not work either and the QUICKPLAY lights stayed on even after I shut down the laptop. I found that the black ribbon cable on the right (the other looks the same but you can see it is for the power button) was slightly kiltered in the flat socket it goes to underneath the area where the quickplay button is. I straightened it out and made sure it was pushed all the way in and locked and put it all back together and everything worked perfectly after that. About a month before that my POWER and SOUND didn`t work. I did the same thing to fix those problems. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THOSE CABLES EXACTLY RIGHT in there, IT MAY JUST BE YOUR PROBLEM TOO.
Some people dont realise that you should avoid short charges and discharges, if your batery does not go above 40% mabe its charge memory thinks its full. to fix this problem let the batery run fully down, then charge it all the way again. try it a few times if it doesnt work. and you have to go all the way, not let windows go into hibernation. to do that you need to get the batery low, then boot to some boot disk and let it sit till the batery dies.
HP has posted BIOS updates to address battery problems as well as the auto startup on some.If you will post the full model number,someone can help you find your driver/updates page.
Not sure if this is whats up with your laptop but there is a recall on the dv6000. The following link has more details on whether your laptop is one of those affected. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&docname=c01087277&product=1842155
