Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
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,
