Re: hp pavillion dv6000
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.

No Screen on Pavilion DV2000T I had this problem before. Tere is a good chance this may work. First
of all remove the ram memory.
-remove battery pack and wait 10 mins
-now start charging laptop without battery pack for 2 mins
-unplUg the power AND press and hold the power button for 45 seconds
-REPLUG THE POWER CABLE BUT DONT PUT THE BATTERY PACK YET
NOW OPEN THE LID WIDER YOU CAN PRESS POWER BUTTON YOU WILL SEE YOUR
SYSTEM WILL START. ONCE YOUR SYSTEM IS READY SHUT IT DOWN PUT THE RAM AND BATTERY
PACK BACK AND CONTINUE TO USE YOUR LAPTOP.
It hope fully will work as if you get one or more beeps, the POST is completing alright. Hope that helps.
1- Scanning computer to eliminate malwares, spywares and the viruses from your laptop.
2- Repairing and cleaning Windows registry.
These two tips are found to be very helpful to fix the laptop shutdown problem. Almost all the computer users surf internet which could result in viruses attacking your system. Some of these infections are really pesky and cause the machines to shutdown randomly.
The registry errors, however, are the internal errors and can become a cause of system crashes and freezes. The registry keys shall be in good health to keep a system perfect.
When I noticed my laptop keeps shutting down everytime, I tested the Intel Software Partner, RegInOut to fix the random shutdown problem with my laptop.
I just had the same problem with my wife's HP Pavillion dv6000 laptop.
was working fine, then just stopped recognizing the wireless card. My
daughter had been using it, so I was in doubt as to what had/hadn't
been done to it software-wise (virus?). So I ran the complete recover
to restore everything to the state when it was new.
Still can't recognize the wireless. The indicator light stays orange no matter which position the switch is in.
So I google "HP dv6000" looking for a manual, and the FIRST thing I find is a Recall notice http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&docname=c01087277 Yeah, I know, they're covering their butts by calling it a "Limited
Warranty Service Enhancement" but they basically know that these
machines were defective from the date of manufacure. They told me that
my machine didn't qualify for the free service because it was 9 months
past the warranty extension and tried to get me to shell out $250 for a
new mother board.
Maybe I'll try the external wireless card
solution, but it sounds like the MB will probably go bad next. I've
owned a bunch of HP computers (have four of them working in the house
right now) but I'll probably be looking at Dell next time around.
