turn on the PC, notebook old , does power stay on? yes/no.?
when you turn it on does the display work at all in any fashion
even just short text ?
like it did new? "hit, Esc"? to enter setup or BIOS"
BIOS is the 2nd test, does BIOS work now, on line power no battery
IT MUST WORK , is this easy?yes.
if the screen is dead,
the Power pack is bad, or you bought the wrong one.
The power pack is just that, AC to DC Power;.
the charger is a chip deep inside the PC, on the main mobo.
if the BIOS is dead with a good power pack then you have major inside case problems.
Ill list them. (BIOS DEAD no matter what)
1: shorted things plugged it killing the power bus.
2: regulators inside bad, on MOBO.
3: line jack to power pack broken to the power jack at the edge of mobo to power pack. (resolder it? ask a tech to?)
4: or worse there is ALWAYS worse possible. even bad mOBO

If your charger is working properly and the laptop is as well, then the laptop should work without a battery in it at all. If your new battery worked and laptop worked with it until the battery died, then the charger or charge port is damaged.
If it does not work with charger plugged in without a battery, then your charger(s) or the laptop charge port itself may be damage or broken. Or worse, the laptop may be dead.
If the laptop does nothing even with a good battery with charge (no fans, no boot, nothing on-screen, no noises) you're laptop could be dead; likely a burned motherboard or processor. It may have overheated or something along those lines.

Your symptoms sound like a known issue with the dv6000 series of HP laptops. Rather than go into a lot of detail here, let me just refer you to the HP web page about the problem. If it fits your situation, call HP at the special number shown on the page. They've been replacing motherboards even for units more than a year old. My son just got his back yesterday, and so far so good. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: Won't recognize battery charger
The battery might need to be replaced. If it works plugged in, but is not charging....it is simply not holding the charge. I know it seems strange that when it is plugged in without the battery it will not work, but that sometimes is the case.

SOURCE: Replaced the dc jack because it would not run on the charger. Still won't charge or run on charger. Is there a voltage controller on the motherboard, because the charger puts out 19.5 static volts a
Try taking out battery and plug in power. If it works, battery is faulty. If not,
Try taking out your hard disk plug in power, if it works, hard disk is faulty. If not,
Try taking out memory card, if there's a sound, memory card faulty. If no sound, it's your motherboard that is causing the error.
Note: If machine is under warranty no need to pay for the repairs.

If it seems like you're accessing the hard drive (drive light comes on, flickers intermittently, then goes off, it's a good chance your screen is bad.
First thing to do is plug in an external monitor and start up the laptop. If it comes up with windows, you know it's the screen.
To find out if it's the backlight, or the lcd, toggle the monitor function and shine a flashlight on a slight angle to the screen. If you can faintly see what was displayed on the external monitor, then the backlight inverter is probably bad.
If the external monitor didn't come up, you're probably looking at a motherboard.
The good thing is that all of those are covered for one year under Compaq's warranty, on a new machine.
If you are able to use the external monitor, back up your data, because HP/Compaq usually reformat the harddrive. Additionally, if you've added memory, pull the cards. They want it sent back the way it came from the factory.

Sounds like you need to calibrate the battery, it is supposed to be done every 3 months. If it is not done, your battery will display the same symptoms are you describe. Yes, this holds true for adding a new battery also.
Here is HP's instructions on how to do it. You want to scroll down to the section called "Calibrate the notebook PC battery".
