First, Plug in an external monitor.
Press <FN> <F4> to toggle between lcd and external monitor to see if it will light an external display.

if that does not work...check your numbers on the bottom against this list. HP knows of flaws on the DV6000X. I loaned a friend a laptop so he could send his in for repair. If the number matches your laptop you are eligible for free repair.

Dark screen

Have you tried turning of the Laptop, removing the battery, pressing the power button for 15 sec and then put it all back together and turn it on. I find this helps with a lot of issues.
to back up your drive you can remove the hard drive and plug it into a docking station like the "Hytec All in One".

Try removing the power supply, battery, hard drive and RAM. Plug in the power supply and press power. If the screen recovers, add the RAM followed by hard drive. If it stops working at any point, that is the issue. If it still doesn't work, I suspect a GPU issue. (Possible overheating). If it now works, maybe a bad connection.

You hard drive is missing from the system. Or, just does not recognize it. The obvious - Remove any USB devices like drives and any media from disc player. Its trying to load, but can't find bootable hard drive, CD, or USB... Remove the hard drive and reseat (reconnect). Check BIOS by pressing an F key during boot. Look on the screen for correct Function key. Might be F2 key. Verify BIOS recognizes the drive. It must be listed! There is no going forward if it's not. Check boot order and make internal hard drive first. Save and restart.

Either your hard drive is bad and needs to be replaced, or you have corrupt windows files. You can try running a repair by booting from the windows CD, or just simply re-install windows, but you will lose all data if you reinstall.

If you can't boot into safe mode then you have serious problems with the files on your hard drive, so try one of the 3 things and it should get fixed.(Try the repair first)

Sounds like start, but screen stays dark,

Not even beeping? Hard to tell from such little info. HDD doesn't work, CPU stays cold, that would indicate a motherboard problem, but then it would beep most of the times. It can be a a problem with your screen, but that doesn't add upp with the HDD, and the CPU staying cool (bye the way, how do you know that?)
I think you should take it to someone who can take a closer look on it.
