HP dv6000 boot problem

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.

    that didn't work, just had it redone!

  • leetyger Mar 28, 2008

    Well, the problem is there even when there is not a hard drive installed..

    Have the same problem here. The dv 6000 had big problems to boot for weeks, and now it does not boot any more.

    And please stop saying "your windows is evil" or "reinstall windows".

    This make no sense since the problem occures BEFORE the BIOS screen... !

    grr sometimes it starts up after the 2nd try, and sometimes it takes up to like 20 minutes.
    Also , when the screen goes to sleep, and I move the mouse again, the screen turns on but the mouse becomes invisible. I could still click stuff, but do know where the mouse it , except when it hovers over a link

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!

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

Go into bios and select default values.restart.
if no better the prob is with ur os.
ur hard drive will need to be (for best results)re-partitioned,reformatted and a fresh os installed.

How do i fix my LCD?


Hi,
I have got a hp pavilion dv5000, when I turn on it the screen goes blank.

Power led glows, I hear for a few time the fan, disk led flashes intermittently and also I feel that the DVD player tries to load.

If I try to click on caps lock or num lock, leds don't respond to commands. I tried the hard reset pressing the power button for 30 seconds with the battery and the power removed. Nothing to be done by connecting an external monitor....

What can I do ?qqb002.gif

Thank you

Gateway laptop i push power button it wont boot up but leds in front flash 4 times


Try holding down the power button instead of just pushing it. I had this problem with my HP dv7 and holding the power button down for around 5 seconds worked for me. Also make sure that its plugged in to a power source.

Not power on


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.

I hope this may help your concern.

Dv55237cl blinking power led no boot


Hi,

I would need some more explanation on this kind of issue.

It seems u have performed most of the steps to isolate the cause of the issue.

are you getting BIOS ???

if not...I guess there has to be something with the motherbaord.. then u need to check the follwoing recall program from HP. if ur laptop is in that then u can get the discount in repair otherwise u need to really concern the local tech to replace the MB.

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01087277&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&jumpid=reg_R1002_USEN


Please check with it.. also can u please provide the product code of ur noetbookso tht i can search the MB..

HP DV6110us: 4 beeps, no boot


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.....

HP DV6000 LED Blink Codes

LED Component Error Condition
Blinking battery power LED Battery Insufficient charge on the battery
Blink: 1 - Caps Lock/Num Lock CPU CPU not functional
Blink: 2 - Caps Lock/Num Lock BIOS BIOS corruption failure
Blink: 3 - Caps Lock/Num Lock Memory Module error not functional
Blink: 4 - Caps Lock/Num Lock Graphics Graphics controller not functional
Blink: 5 - Caps Lock/Num Lock System board General system board failure
Blink: 6 - Caps Lock/Num Lock BIOS BIOS authentication failure

My battery is at 0% and does not charge and whenever i take out the power chord my computer automatically turns off. Any help


here is a good resource I found:

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.
  • I made the bios update, and works for me. My Dv6000 battery problems were fixed. The battery led always blinking every time and the battery didn’t charge. Now it’s ok !
    http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01087277&lc=en&cc=us&lang=en&dlc=en&product=3245619
  • If it is still under warranty you can chat with an online hp tech who will check it out over the internet and send you a replacement for free. the dv 6000 laptops have a recall on a few problems and there is a bios update to fix it before it happens but will not correct it after the fact the recall on specific problems extends the warranty to 24 months http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01087277&lc=en&cc=us&lang=en&dlc=en&product=3245619 should get you to the warranty page.
  • 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.
Hope this helps, please rate! ^_^

Hold the power button until it turns off, usually take 4-5 seconds. Otherwise pull the AC cord and the battery to do a hard reset.
