You'll have to talk to the techs at HP about this, Most laptops are built around the motherboard, not easily interchangeable like desk top towers.

Try the HP website follow links for support and contact us, see if you can talk to a tech who should be able to point you in the right direction.

Yes, you can replace your worn out motherboard, but it will cost you around 300-400$. In my opinion it doesn't worth this money. You could buy a Toshiba Qosmio. There are several models and you could pick a decent one from them.
If you need further assistance, leave a comment. Cheers

Try another cord/charger with the EXACT same power specs as the original. Has the AC jack in the laptop been damaged, loose connection, due to pulling on the cord while plugged in? Try to wiggle it when plugged in to see if there is any connection. The AC jack may need replacing, if your lucky.

Will not boot


Odds are that your problem is with the nvidia graphics card that is soldered on the motherboard. This has been a recurring problem on a lot of the Dell, HP and Apple computers. Try these links to read articles about the nvidia problem.

http://news.cnet.com/8301-13554_3-10020782-33.html

After reading throught he articles, remember your computer might qualify to be fixed free by HP. Here's a link to look at the model#, serial# and part# located on the bottom of your laptop to see if it is covered by the extended warranty they did to cover the nvidia problem.
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&docname=c01300427

Here's a link to check the old warranty because the extended warranty is only good for 24 months after the old original warranty expires.
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/weInput?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=3245619

Finally if all fails, it should cost no more than $175 to repair the laptop. The guys listed by this link are a good source for the repairs. http://www.generalsystemsconsulting.com

Pavilion TX1000 - WiFi card suddenly not detected


The solution is, get a USB wifi adapter, because that card is done. HP REFUSES to recognize this problem, and since the majority of failures happen after the warranty expires (mine did) HP just says you are SOL. You can get decent wireless adapters for $20, and your wireless problems will be solved. Unfortunately, expect your laptops motherboard/chipset/dc port to fail within a year :(

Warranty expire


Hi,

If your computer's warranty is expired, you can go ahead and purchase extended warranty for your computer by contacting HP Support.

Let me inform you that ongoing issues will not cover under this warranty.

The extended warranty will be updated within a month time.

Thanks and Regards,

Pavilion dv6000t screen won't come on.


I had this exact problem with a customers computer andi found out that HP put faulty motherboards in the DV6000, DV9000, Compaq V6000 Series Computers. Thankfully HP fixing all computers for free and extending the warranty even if the warranty has expired they will ship you a box and you ship it off and they fix it at no cost. the turn around period is about 7 days.

Here is a link to an article that talks about it
