Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook

2 Answers

Dv6000 will not startup ,Black screen , hd isnit being accessed

I have a hp pavilion dv6000 amd core and nvidia graphics. The wireless had stopped working and in an attempt to fix this i installed a bios update 4.2 and reinstalled the wifi and hp wireless assistant drivers. Now, the OS doesnt boot giving a blank screen during startup. The initial boot-up screen with the gui interface does not come as well.. Could the issue be with the GMU or something else. Prior to the bios update the laptop worked normally.

When you first turn the laptop on is there a HP splash screen? Can you enter the BIOS (normally by tapping F2 or Del key). If so then it would seem the BIOS updated OK. If when you turn it on there is nothing the BIOS flash probably went wrong and the machine will need a new BIOS flash chip installed.
If you can access BIOS then it may be a simple problem that the new BIOS reverted to default values. The most common issue would be the boot mode of the HDD. Look through the BIOS menus and there should be an option for boot which will say AHCI/IDE/Compatibility. Try changing it to another option, save and exit BIOS and see if that helps. Try this for each option.
Alternatively tap F8 continuously when you turn the laptop on and see if the advanced boot menu appears, if it does try selecting Safe mode with networking.
Finally to test if the HDD is actually working, try downloading Hiren's BootCD and boot to it. Then run some HDD diagnostics to see if the HDD is operating correctly.
Hope this helps,

Both use the Fairchild Semiconductor Industries - FDS6679 - Power MOSFET, and Alpha & Omega Semiconductor LTD - AO4407 - Power MOSFET, in the DC - DC circuit; as far as I know.

Both are Obsolete, but there are cross match examples out there.

Indicates HP Pavilion dv9000 series, and AMD; but also matches up to the Pavilion dv6500 series,

Asking for a Schematic, do I assume you are attempting
Board Level Component replacement?

What SMD/SMT IC component are you trying to replace?
(Surface Mount Device/Surface Mount Technology. Integrated Circuit)

Motherboard chipset info, and processor socket info, for processor upgrade.
Same thing for Ram Memory upgrade.
It does use DDR2 Sdram (SO-DIMM), and at 667MegaHertz, to my knowledge.

What usually goes bad on the HP Pavilion dv2000 series, Pavilion dv6000 series, and Pavilion dv9000 series of Notebook PC's?

The cooling for the graphics chipset is inadequate, therefore the graphics chipset overheats, and partially melts the Solder Joints in the BGA surface mount.

Resulting in no graphics.

Power MOSFET's in DC - DC circuit go bad.

The dv6000 series was commonly affected by the video card heating up and reseating itself. This was usually a soldering issue. You have a few options, You can either replace the motherboard, or have the motherboard reflowed. Unfortunately the video card itself is not detachable or individually replaceable.

I personally would recommend the second option as purchasing another dv6000 board will likely end you up in the same situation a year or 2 later.

DV6000 No Video on LCD screen


There is a very common issue with the HP DV60xx series overheating (due to the Nvidia video chip) that causes these laptop system boards to fail. There is a listing of the "affected models" http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=1842189&lang=en&docname=c01300427#c01300427_dv20
And based on your product number you may have an extended warranty. As far as I understand, this extended warranty is limited to AMD processor based units which use the NVIDIA GPU (graphical processing unit) .
I would check the link I posted above, see if your Product number (usually a white sticker on the bottom near your serial number) is on the list and then call hp.
Good luck :)
