Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
my laptop seems to just freeze up and no controls will work , i have to shut down by pressing the on/off button.
it seems to work fine if i just run it off the battery or just off the main power cable(battery taken out) , but as soon as i try with power cable and battery in , it just freezes up ,
It's possible that the battery has developed a short. I've seen batteries that appear to be perfectly good, conflict with the system when plugged in. This is due to the battery trying to back feed into the system when the charge is completely topped off. When the battery is completely charged it has a fail safe built in in order to keep from over charging, this fail safe is malfunctioning. I imagine that if you use it for a while on battery, then plug it in, it will work for a while or at least until the battery is close to full charge, and then starts locking up. Try replacing the battery, that should cure it. If this fixes it, I would get rid of the old battery, with the fail safe not working it poses a potential risk of exploding. If it turns out not to be the battery, then you're looking at the power management chip on the motherboard. This chip controls and regulates the power and allows the machine to switch back ad forth from battery to AC. If this chip malfunctions it can cause a multitude of problems, yours being one of them.
