Hello,

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.
Take care.

How do I open my hp pavilion entertainment pc base to find cable that connects base to screen


http://www.insidemylaptop.com/disassemble-hp-pavilion-dv6500-dv6600-dv6700-dv6800-notebooks/ has good disassembly instructions - but more than what you need.

Remove the battery (Step 1) but you can ship steps 2-4.

On Step 5 - remove the screws circled in red at the top of the picture, but you can leave the other screws in place.

Steps 6-12 will get you to where you need to be.

If you need to acces any other areas of the computer, this video is an excellent guide to any/all areas of disassembly.

One Caution: There are multiple different sizes to the screws. You may want to keep a piece of paper next to the computer, and tape each screw to it's corresponding position in the computer onto the paper. that way, each screw will return to it's original position.

Hope this helps!

When i first installed the audio driver for my hp pavillion entertainment pc dv6748us laptop, it is working, but after a couple of shutdowns it's not working again. what shall i do? please help me....


Go to My Computer/ Properties/ Device Manager - is your device listed? Does it show a yellow triangle or a red mark? If so, delete the device and reboot your computer Windows should identify that the driver is missing and reload it.

If this doesnt work, go to www.hp.com/support find your computer and get the driver you require.

Thanks for your question @ FixYa.com

The laptop is a dv6700 HP Pavillion. What steps should I take to solve this issue.


About it being an HP Pavilion dv6700 laptop?
Ehhh, giveittome. I will use it.

Looks like I'm going to have to guess since the 'Issue' wasn't stated.

The main problem with the Pavilion dv6700, which is part of the Pavilion dv6000 series of Notebook PC's, is that all the indicator lights come up, but there are no graphics being shown on the LCD screen.
The screen is black.

This is due to a graphics chipset problem, caused by a poor cooling design of HP designers.

The graphics chipset (GPU. Graphics Processing Unit), is mounted to the motherboard in a BGA surface mount.

Instead of pins coming off of the bottom of the chipset, as on the older Processors, there are Solder Balls.

The motherboard has tiny copper pads that line up to the solder balls.
The graphics chipset is set into place, then heat is used to melt the solder balls, and attach the graphics chipset to the motherboard.

Due to the poor cooling design, the graphics chipset overheats, and the solder connections are partially melted.
The graphics chip now has a poor contact to the motherboard.

HP Pavillion DV6700 is shittung down


This could be numerous things. It could be an over heating problem, a virus, a power supply failing or something wrong in the power adapter on the motherboard where the power plug plugs into the laptop. If you plug in the laptop and see the battery charge light come on then the problem is most likely an overheating problem or a virus. If the battery charge light comes on then I would recommend taking it to a reputable repair facility to have them diagnose the problem.

Hi, believe it or not?; sometimes the current in certain areas of the home or apartment have separate power circuits from the main direct current system. Check to make sure there is electrical current running through your socket, and or light switch to open the circuit. Thanks, paul7of9
