Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
This is a common problem for several of the "dvxxxx" models from 3 years or so ago. It means that the video chip on the motherboard has gotten so hot that the solder holding it in it's socket started to liquefy and now there isn't a good connection between the video chip and the motherboard. You can get a replacement motherboard from the company for about $450 (give or take alittle), your could order a new one from ebay - but be sure that you order the exact type of motherboard that is in your computer, or you could take it to a shop that knows how to "reflow" the motherboard or "reball" the solder on the motherboard and video chip. If you can find someone to do a reflow or a reball it will likely cost your between $120 - $150. There's a risk though that it will happen again if you have any of those things done. If you get the motherboard replaced or get it working by someone doing a "reflow", then I suggest that you invest in a good laptop cooling pad\fan. I've repaired several of these computers and all of them have issues again after awhile; unless I have used a laptop cooling pad\fan all of the time. -madhatter639
