My HP DV6 Notebook computer suddenly stopped working today. It is plugged into a good outlet with a good connection. The power light at the connection is on and when I push the power button to turn it on, it lights up for 1 sec and then goes off. Help! I have had it for about 6 months.

Oh boy!!! Uhmm... I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but I believe that your motherboard has taken a dive and rendered the computer un-usable.

I know this isn't an answer you want, but in my repair business I have run into my share of this particular model and this is a really bad pattern. If you didn't spend to aweful much on the system and are comfortable replacing the motherboard yourself, then that would be my next recommendation. But experience being a (fill in your own descriptive noun) it might be likely that your particular model is not cost viable.

Sorry this wasn't the best news... But I hope it helps...

MY HP DV6 1030US will not power on after Keypad was replaced. When i connect the power cord the power light comes on but when i press the power button nothing happens


Hi,


Im very sorry to hear that, please follow these simple steps for you to be able to isolate the exact problem.


1. Removed the battery.
2. Connect the laptop directly to the power outlet without using the battery just for the meantime.
3. Turn on the laptop. If the laptop is able to power on, that means that the AC adapter is working fine as well as the DC port. If the laptop is not able to turn on, it maybe the AC adapter itself or the DC port.
4. Try to use another AC adapter if possible, make sure that that AC adapter is working fine. If the laptop is still not turning on, the problem is with the DC port itself. In that case, you will need to replaced the Motherboard itself.


Hope this will help...Thank you for using Fixya...

Today we lost power to our home. Blinked first then dimmed and then went out completely. When power was restored, I tried to turn my computer on but the switch light would not come on. No power except...


If the computer was not plugged into a surge protector the computer could be damaged. If it was plugged into into a surge protector see if there is a reset on the surge protector .Try unplugging the computer for a few minutes and the plug it in again and try it. You can try plugging the computer into a different outlet that you know is working(without the surge protector). If you look on the power supply there may be a reset inside the case.
If nothing works you may have only burnt out the power supply in the computer, you could try another power supply from another computer to see if it is just the power supply. If still not working you would have to test and trouble shoot all your parts to see what is damaged.

I have a HP pavillion dv6 that I've had for about a year and just today while working online the screen suddenly changed colors. It's not inverted but some black colors are a solid red, some whites have...


Hi there,

ASAP (and the caps are intentional) get your laptop connected to an external monitor. If the display is fine on the "big screen", it's most likely you only have a screen inverter/lcd failure. Failing Inverters can cause the effect you're seeing as well as an LCD burn out on the way.

If the displays are identical, then your video card is about to fail.

At least you'll know, and know right away.

Best Regards,

The battery will not charge unless the computer is off. it runs on the battery even if its plugged in why? if i unplug the the adapter then plug it in it charges for a few seconds and then stops and then...


1. First remove the Battery, clean the Battery contacts with the pencil eraser and insert the Battery in the Computer.

2. Connect the AC Adapter (Battery charger) securely to the Computer and the Power outlet.

3. If the issue persists, try connecting the AC Adapter to different Power outlet.

4. Make sure that both the connecting points (DC IN port on the Computer and the Power outlet plug) are securely connected and not loose.

5. If the issue persists, try with different AC Adapter.


Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!

HP DV2036ea i have a blank screen on the computer


Hello there

Description.

When pressing the notebook power button nothing is displayed on the screen or display. The cause of this problem may be a failed AC adapter, the memory modules (RAM) need to be reseated or a failed notebook system board component which will require an HP certified repair.

Below steps will assist in identifying the cause of the problem and suggest the best solution. Test the AC adapter Follow the steps below to determine whether the problem is related to the AC adapter or your notebook system board.
  1. Remove the battery and disconnect all external devices from the computer.
  2. Hold the Power button for several seconds, with all power sources removed. This drains residual power from the system, and may correct many problems.
  3. Connect the AC adapter to a wall outlet and plug the other end into the computer.
  4. Press the Power button to start the notebook PC.
If the notebook does not start or the display is blank then check the power indicator light or power socket LED. Check the power indicator light or power socket LED On newer models of notebook PCs, there is an LED or indicator light around the power socket on the notebook. Check to see if this light is on or off, when the notebook is plugged into AC power.The power indicator light or power socket light should turn on when the AC adapter is connected.

  • If the light does not turn on then the problem is most likely related to the AC adapter or the electrical source in your home or office. Go to the Light does not turn on section on this page.
  • If the light does turn on but the notebook does not start or the there is a blank screen then continue to the Light does turn on but the notebook does not start section on this page

The light does not turn on when the AC adapter is connected If the power indicator LED is off, the AC power adapter may need to be replaced. To determine if the AC power adapter needs to be replaced follow the steps below:
  1. Ensure that the AC adapter is plugged directly into a known working wall outlet.
    NOTE: To check the wall outlet, plug in a different known working device like a light, radio etc.
  2. Check all of the following connections:
    • The connection from the power cord to the wall outlet.
    • The connection into the power adapter from the power cord.
    • The connection from the AC adapter to the notebook power socket.
  3. Press the power button again to test the notebook PC.
If the power indicator light still does not turn on, then the AC Adapter needs to be replaced. Contact HP Service and Support for further assistance. Power socket LED or power indicator light is on but the notebook does not start If notebook power indicator light (LED) is on, the AC adapter is working correctly. The problem is a result of a hardware failure in the notebook itself. In some cases, reseating the memory module (RAM) may solve the problem.

Hp Laptop screen flicker


Hi, i noticed that when I unplugged my HP the screen stopped flickering. I then re-plugged in the power, when to the Nvidia control settings, to PowerMizer, and changed 'ac outlet' to Maximum Power Saving.

Not the world's greatest solution, but hey, working laptop now.

Cheers,
Andy.
