Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
I have the HP Pavillion dv6700 and it just will not power on it's the entertainment dv6748us. Any and all assistance is greatly appreciated.
Remove the battery from the laptop and plug in the adapter to power supply and connect the adapter with your laptop, power on your laptop to see if it will power on, if it power on, unplug the adapter and put back the battery, try power it on while the adapter is still connected to power outlet, if it powers on, remove the adapter from your laptop and power on the laptop, if it did not power on, it means the battery as been short circuit and will need to be replace, follow the step one after the other to see where the problem lies, but i believe so much that the battery might be the problem, so remove the battery and plug in the adapter to your laptop and power outlet and turn on the laptop to see if it will turn on, if it does, replace the battery.
Look at the battery indicator light on your computer. Is it on? If so, check your brightness settings. If your laptop appears that it is not on, it may in actuality have lowered brightness settings. If the brightness setting is at its lowest setting, the laptop screen will be completely dark, and the laptop will appear to be powered off, even though it is not. Try cranking up the brightness settings.
Check your AC power adapter. Is it snugly plugged into the wall or surge protector? Make sure the connection is made and it is not loose. Also, try connecting the power adapter into a different wall outlet. Check the status of your laptop battery by considering how long you have had the same battery. Most modern batteries are only good for about 1,000 full charges. After that point, the battery can and eventually will greatly deteriorate. Replace your battery if necessary.
Replace your battery by powering off your laptop and then flipping it over and locating the battery cover outline, which will be near the bottom back of your laptop. Remove any screws with a Phillips screwdriver and pop off the battery cover. Slide out the old battery. Put in the new battery by sliding it in until it clicks, and then replace the cover.
Consider replacing your laptop monitor. Your laptop may power on, but if the monitor display does not work, it will appear to be off and you will not be able to operate the machine. Check to see if your current LCD display works by plugging your laptop up to an external monitor using a VGA cable. If the external monitor displays your computer contents, your computer motherboard and underlying systems are still working, but your display will need to be replaced.
