When the power button is pressed the only thing that happens is the lights lightup and nothing else then after a few seconds it shuts down again, nothing comes on the screen at all and the fan is not running, no sound from the unit itself, just lights up then shutsdown again, the battery is 100% charged and ive tryed booting without the battery but still no joy.

Re: Presario V6000 laptop
Sounds like a motherboard issue ,
can you take the drive to another computer and check the contents are still accessible.
If contents are accesible then the motherboard is poked.
replace device and start again.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Please 1. unplug the ac adapter, detach the main battery, press the power button for 15 seconds, plug in the ac adapter, and restart your laptop. If the problem persist: 2.unplug the ac adapter, detach the main battery, press the power button for 15 seconds, take out the hard drive, plug in the ac adapter, and restart your laptop. If the problem persist, then it means that the laptop motherboard is dying. Please read your laptop's service manual before you open the laptop's case/body.
Disconnect all cables from the computer. Press and hold down the power button for about 20 seconds. Reconnect only the power cable and try to turn on the computer on pressing the power button If it turns on then good otherwise, switch the power cable of the computer with the power cable of the monitor as they are the same cable as the power cable could be bad but this rarely happens. Open the computer and see if you see any light on the motherboard, if you do then the power supply is bad. If you dont then both power supply and the motherboard could be bad.
The laptop might be overheating, sometimes when the laptop cant get any ventilation it shuts down and will not properly power up till the temperature issues are delt with.
But you usually get at least a few seconds of power before it shuts down again, so it may not be that, sounds a bit more like the CPU is dead and will need replaced.
You could be having a problem with your power source....(not the plugin) but the actual power unit inside of the laptop. Or could be dirty inside and sometimes they get touchy with a lot of dust build up. Try cleaning out the inside of the laptop be removing some panels on the bottom and the keyboard. Try using a can of air to blow the crud out.
You can also take it to a shop and have them test the power source.
Sorry to hear about your V6000 problems. If this problem has just started and all was OK before this happened.! 1. Remove all media from drives. 2. Remove battery and A/C power input. 3. Flip unit over and remove the memory. 4. Disconnect the CMOS battery. 5. Remove the Hard Drive. 6. Flip unit over and Press the Start Button for 30 seconds. 7. Flip unit over again and re-install the Hard Drive, Memory and last, the CMOS battery. Note ... 8. Reconnect the unit to the A/C input supply voltage. Leave the battery out for NOW !. Flip unit and try to start with the Touch Pad Led's. This should bring up Quick Play. If your unit starts and you here several beeps, Don’t worry, !! You should be able to access the BIOS screen. You can reset your date and time. If you are still not able to start unit, drop me a email and I will try some other ideas. Hope this works for you. !! Try it, It may work !!
