My laptop is HP Pavilion dv6000 windows vista, it can not re-boot, but the lights go on and off when you switch it on, I can not see anything on the screen, totally became black, but the lights keep going on and off.
Could please assist helping to solve this problem.
I have the same computer with Windows Vista and am having the same exact problem. I was working on my computer with the music playing, when the screen went dark almost as if it was going into a screen saver mode. Before turning it off, I moved my cursor around and saw nothing on the screen. I turned the computer off and when I restarted it, the lights come on and it sounds like it is starting but the screen is black.
I think it has to do with your video cardsettings.I suggest u should get knoppix live cd which is downloadable free from the net.You then try to boot your computer using knoppix cd by changing your boot options to booting from cd.You enter the boot options by pressing down one of the function keys depending on your computer make.If u are able to boot in to knoppix you can access your video card and then resety it.

Have you tried to boot the laptop with the power cable connected? Is the charging indicator on when you connect it to the adapter? If the charging indicator does not light up, check if your adapter output and try booting it with the power cable connected.

audio driver is the first on each page. if you have problems make sure you have the correct model. this is for hp dv6000 but you should check in the bottom of your laptop near the windows registration label
try to download belarc advisor software. Run this in your vista OS and send it to me so I can check your hardware specs. This is the only way to avoid problems in the future or before you start the formatting.
HP has identified a hardware issue with certain HP Pavilion
dv2000/dv6000/dv9000 and Compaq Presario V3000/V6000 series notebook
PCs, and has also released a new BIOS for these notebook PCs, version
F.39 for dv2000/V3000, and version F.3D for dv6000/dv9000/V6000.
There is option in BIOS called something about automated SATA recognition or similar - disable it. It is under System configuration. And if you are putting new drive in then run full test from BIOS (Hard drive selftest - takes about 79min.) I tried to reinstall Windows Media center on my HP dv6000 because my previous hdd crashed - When I put in installation cd - it said that it can't find hdd. I spent week to figuring that out. The thing is - as far as you haven't disabled that SATA thing in BIOS - PC doesn't recognize hdd. But only with Windows media center edition. With all other windows xp - there is no such problems. Strange.
