Hey ,, ok first of does both drives give the problem or is it just one..

<b>if its only one drive<b>
then the drive itself can be damaged, you may need to replace it.

<b>if is both drives <b>
Did it come with both drives or did it not ?
<If it did>
then when turning on your laptop it ask you to press a certin key to enter setup, press this key and enter setup,
load the optimised defaults and see if that helps.
if that fails remove one of the drives and try it , then remove the other and replace the first and vice versa,
If that fails then try bthe drives on anoter system or take it to a technician so he/she can verify its working for you..(YEP BOTH DRIVES CAN BE SHOT)"that was bold not shouting"

<if it did not>
Remove the drive you added and see if works
replace the drive you added and remove the other
If that fails then try bthe drives on anoter system or take it to a technician so he/she can verify its working for you..(YEP BOTH DRIVES CAN BE SHOT)"that was bold not shouting

My base doesn't light up the power display and sound display at the bottom. The power button works; however, the volume buttons do not. I also have hooked the dock up to a 2 port USB KVM switch and it...

what OS, what operating system.
KVM are very unreliable. , we could talk KVM for days, on this.
no KVM evens stated, brand or model number.
dock ,circa 2008, compatible with V6000
what OS on v6000.
we can not guess what OS you are running, at all.

its a USB problem with the KVM.
V6000 is a 2006 product..
that came with XP or VISA, neither are supported now.
the V6000 must have all its HP drivers installed to work right.
no KVM is guaranteed to work here, with XP its real bad.
XP has bad USB drivers, that are infamous for not working
with odd USB devices, nor many other things,
got SP3 for XP, IF XP>? it fixes some of that be never all.

this is a V6000 to KVM USB issue.
and no OS stated at all.

Compaq presario v6000 laptop when switched on blue lcd lights on only,can hear fan on but windows does'nt install and nothing on lcd screen what so ever. Every few minutes i hear a click noise and lcd...

It is the motherboard. The V6000, V2000 as well as the siblings in the HP line DV2000, DV6000, and DV9000 all have the same issue. In my opinion is from the oxidation of the motherboard contacts before the nVidia BallGridArray chips are hot air soldered to the board.

As the laptop heats and cools, these .014mm balls expand and contract. Where there is a poor solder pad, the solderball unsticks from the contact surface.

I have repaired 22+ in the month of October alone.

2 things to try: go back on the HP website and request assistance from tech support; or go on Google and ask what you need to do to activate the wireless LAN. Check what the network settings are on your laptop 1st.

My hp pavilion dv9000z dvd burner does not burn dvd's all the way through, i've tried different brands of blank discs, some do not even start burning, i've started using dvd+rw, so that i can use the disc...

Here's a few things to check:
  1. make sure you have at least 15% free space on your c: drive. If free space is too low, windows has very little hard drive space to use as virtual memory and windows can just barf sometimes.
  2. make sure you don't have a bunch of other programs running when you are burning discs, especially limewire and any other peer to peer or torrent downloading software. Close all programs you are not using, including programs in the system tray (by the clock).
  3. Try burning discs at slower speeds. Also good to check for malware. download these 3 free programs and run all of them. do full scans and delete any problems they find.

also, there are some known hardware issues with this series of laptop. I'm not sure if this is one of them, but in many cases, HP will repair your laptop past the warranty of charge. Seriously.

It is possible that the dvd burner itself is defective.
try this if the steps above don't get things working for you.

Contact HP support, explain the issue, and ask them this question:

"does this problem qualify my laptop for a one time warranty enhancement"?

Hope this helps!

Need audio driver of compaq presario V6000

usually all drivers for Compaq and HP computer systems (portable and non-portable) can be found on the HP support website (Click here to go to it), simply go there, chose your region, than your country, enter your model number (not the series, the model number, you would usually find it on the service tag, or wherever you would find a serial number), but be sure to chose "Download drivers and software (and firmware)", and than chose your operating system.

Shuts down with DVD-RW installed, works fine without

Since the hardware route is expensive, have you tried to upgrade the software/drivers for the drive?

It looks like there's an incompatibility between the software, OS and hardware.

Hope this helps :) Kindly leave a rating. Thanks..
