Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
Hi, If you are you swift with a phillips screwdriver and a pen torch, you can get a how to on the net for this repair. I just did it and what an amazing fix. Otherwise, you can send it out and have it repaired for $125 Replacement mother boards are OEM and have not been modded for reduced heat dissipation and will fail just like the original did. Just to get mine up for a few minutes, I blew compressed air into fan heatsink area and a ton of ghost farts flew out and the fan spun up long enough to identify my issue. The GPU (graphics processing unit) had become overheated and connections to the main board were lost. I disassembled and laced heat shields around the GPU chip and remelted the solder connections, about 235 F for 40 55 seconds. Reassembled and iT WORKED! Took a little guts to just try, why not it was already broke?! Otherwise $125 ain't as much as the dang thing was when first purchased. Go ahead, research it, dig in an head first - you can if you think so. <!-- from fixya rte -->

It sounds like the Power Jack where the adapter plugs in.
