I would check the memory first. If you have two sticks of ram in it. Take one out the try to start it. if you have no luck, switch it with the other one. Then try a restart.
If you have lights but black screen, your video (gpu) may be bad. The fix depends on the model you have. In most cases, it is a motherboard replacement. If you have a DV6000-DV9000 they are notorious for having bad solder. It comes loose and loses connection. You can take the motherboard from the laptop case, heat the gpu for about 30 seconds (with a heat gun), and hold pressure on it for 1 minute. When you put it back together, put silver grease on the gpu and lay a copper shim ( I use a penny) between the gpu and the heat sink. This fix works 75% of the time, but it is not a permanent fix. You may get month out of it, 6 months if you are lucky. You will eventually replace the motherboard
it may be virus issue. i suggest you to try with last known good configuration so that it will take your computer to last good working state. for that tab F9(Function key) continously immediately once you turn on your computer until you get the advanced option on your screen. highlight last known good configuration and hit enter and it will boot in that mode once you get the main sceen CLICK start - > all programs- > Accessories - > system tools -> system restore and wizard will open and select Restore my computer to an earlier time click next next finish to set your computer to last good working condition.
If that doesnt work reinsatll the OS
There is chance of serious problem with the screen of the Your laptop. This problem is often seen in case of HP laptop which are more then 6-7 months old.
So if the laptop is under warranty they(customer care) will replaced the screen for free.
If not the will charge few $ and provide you with original screen.
Please check with the vendor from where you have bought your laptop.
Try to attach your computer to an external monitor to see if it is a screen issue or a motherboard issue. If the computer does not pick up on the external right away, try to toggle it by holding down the Fn key and striking F4. If you get a picture on the external, then you have only lost the screen and the motherboard shouyld be fine.
I have the same laptop, and though I havent had a black out problem i do have screen burn or a discoloration in the lower corners of my screen. I was told that It was due to this model's overheating issue and that I would have to replace the screen.
Hey. That can be a pretty frustrating thing. I've sent a couple laptops into a service center with those types of symptoms. Almost 100% of the time it's a mobo issue. I know that's not what you want to hear, but that's from my personal experience.
