That is because XP is not compatible with this laptop. The drivers for the mother board won't work correctly. Vista is about as old as you can go otherwise some of the drivers won't work.

Disable lid sensor on hp pavilion dv6

In your control panel look for your power setting control. In there you will have multiple items one of them will be "what to do when I close the screen on my computer" Set this to "nothing"

Windows 7 and (I think vista)
To get into the control panel click: Start > Control panel > system and security > Power Options On the top left you will see a few options, you should see it there.

Use the free partition manager form EASEUS. Convert the partitions #3 and #4 into logical partitions containded both in the same extended partition (you can have only one extended partition, but it can contain multiple logical partitions, each with its own drive letter asigned)
Now you can using the same EASEUS to split the patition you wanted.

When i turn on there is a beep and the screen remain dark what is the problem???

Do you see an Error Code stated on the screen? If so state it here in a Comment.

I would like you to perform a simple step first, then we'll go on to diagnose.
I would like you to remove the Ram Memory module/s ('Stick'), clean the contacts, and then reinstall.

A) Remove ALL power from the laptop. Remove the AC adapter (Charger) and Battery.
B) Lay a towel, or similar object on your work table, and lay the laptop upside down on it.
(Bottom facing up)

C) De-Static yourself. Your body carries Static electricity. Static will fry out (Short Circuit) the hardware components inside a computer.

The best method is to wear an ESD wrist strap, and connect it's alligator clip to a good ground source. (Electro Static Discharge. An ESD wrist strap usually runs about $5)

Next best method is to place a large metallic object on your work table, and touch it Before working on your computer, and occasionally during.
(If you get up, and leave your computer repair in the middle, upon your return be SURE to touch the metallic object again. Metallic object? Perhaps a large metal serving tray, or metal knickknack)

D) Looking at the bottom of the laptop in the Middle, there is a large rectangular compartment panel.
The panel's length goes Vertically. There are two vents in this panel. One horizontally across the bottom, and one vertically towards the top.

This is the Memory Module Compartment

There are four Philips head screws to Loosen. One towards the top left corner. One below it, and two in the middle. (Left and Right)
Once the screws are loosened remove the Memory Module Compartment Panel.
(The cover swings up, from the back towards the front, of the laptop)

Gently spread the Retaining Tabs away from the Ram Memory module. Ease the Retaining Tab's 'bump' out of the notch on the memory module.
Once both of the 'bumps' are free from the ram memory module, the memory module will slightly pop-up.

The Ram Memory Module is NOT removed in a straight up position. Ease it out at an angle.
(Otherwise the ram memory module pins will be damaged, and the slot it goes in)

Use a pencil eraser, and clean each gold plated contact pin. Just a few strokes up, and down on each contact pin. (It may not look as though you have cleaned it very well, but I assure you that you have. Doesn't take much 'corrosion' to make a bad contact surface)
Use air to remove the eraser dust, reinstall the ram memory module/s.

Here is a free Service Manual from HP Support,

HP Support > Pavilion dv6-1030us Notebook PC > Manuals,

I would like you to scroll down, and click on the file name -
HP Pavilion dv6 Entertainment PC - Maintenance and Service Guide

This is a PDF file. It may take as much as 30 seconds before you will see the first page.
It may also take additional time to fully download.

Didn't fix the problem?

Use a flashlight, and shine it at the LCD screen with the laptop on. Shine at various angles. Do you
see faint images?

Laptop OFF, attach a VGA monitor (IF available) to the VGA port on the back of the laptop.
(CRT. Looks like a small TV. OR you can use a flat LCD screen monitor if it has a VGA cable)

Laptop ON, press and hold down on the Fn key, (Bottom left corner, second key towards the right, on the Keyboard), and tap the monitor toggle over key.
(Top left corner, fifth key from the left. Has a rectangular monitor icon on it)

Do you get graphics on the external monitor?

If the answer is yes to both procedures above, your graphics chip is working fine.
You have a problem with the Inverter.
(Screen Inverter)

An LCD screen cannot produce enough light by itself. It needs an additional light source.
A Backlight is the additional light source.

A Backlight is a CCFL.
Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp.
Similar to the Fluorescent lighting used in homes, and businesses, but on a MUCH smaller scale.

An Inverter is used to convert the electricity from the laptop, for the Backlight, and LCD screen.

90 percent of the time the fault is the Inverter.

The Inverter is located behind the Display Bezel, and at the bottom of the LCD screen. It is a Small rectangular circuit board.
(Page 84 and 86 in the Service Manual)

Very Easy to replace.

How do I remove the screen? I don't see any screws.HP Pavillion dv6 1030us

After you lift the screen you will see 3 or 4 smallrubber plugs at the top and 2 at the bottom, if you have fingernails they come out easily if not a small flat screwdriver. You will now see the screws now just gently work your way around the screen and it will just clip off........cheers from Scott
