Boot Problems on HP NC6000 Notebook

I have just replaced a motherboard on a HP nc6000 NoteBook. When I went to test it and power it up the fan started, but nothing else happened, (RAM, CPU, and HDD installed) the power light constanly flashes even if the laptop is powered down, even with the battery is in place and no AC, tried without the RAM and HDD same thing happens, the the power LED flashes constanly when running or powered down. no display on monitor or external either. This is a reconditioned motherboard I have installed. Has any one have any ideas what is wrong, please help?

My first question would be why was the motherboard needing to be replaced, I am willing to bet the last one overheated. These Hp laptops with the NC6000 in mind had problems and contenue to have problems with Gpu/cpu over heats with that said you might want to try a diffrent cpu in this bad boy. Now Hp knows the defect and its really in the Gpu not the cpu but when the overheat happens the cpu is also effected.

This ads me to beleave ether

1. Your cpu is a goner
2. You bought someone's problem board refurb or not

I know there is basicaly absolutly no way to bench test a mother board outside of the shell, But I feel you bought more problems.

You may want to catch up in the forums here:

My solution here you will not like but here it goes return the motherboard and by a non hp laptop like toshiba, or lenovo dont get stuck with junk because that is what it is and what it was as soon as it hit the store shelves sorry to break it to you harshly but it is what it is, This NC6000 was a compaq before it was a hp my friend.

HP NC6000 boot failure.Fan starts but quits after 10 secs or so.

There could be a problem with the battery. A fast check to determine whether you have a problem with the power adapter, power cord or the laptop's battery is to turn off the laptop, remove the battery, connect the power adapter, turn on the laptop & see if it works.
If the laptop works directly from the power adapter with the battery removed, then the power adapter is good. In this case we can suspect that the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.

If this did not work, try also disassembling the laptop & make sure that all main components are seated properly. Also make sure that all ribbon cables interconnecting the various components of the laptop are tightly connected.

Hp nc6000 wont bootup

hi thanks for using fixya!

On this kind of error, the only option you could do is to format your system, but if you are not so familiar in formatting your laptop, I suggest that you bring laptop to service tech, to easily perform error checking and reformatting. This error might be virus or software problems.

Thanks! hope this will enlighten you. please rate me! good luck!
