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.

There is no cheap fix for this one unfortunately.

Keep me posted with your outcome thanks

    the battery on the motehrboard is there to retain the settings and passwords for the installed system,even if you replace the battery the problem would more than likely still exist,

    Removing the battery long enough would reset the stored settings and clear this memory function.

    You can purchase a USB 2.0 to IDE Adapter Lead ,

    2.5" hard drive (laptop size) lead for the testing function,

    Theyre reasonably cheap for the job it does then you can use a standard pc usb to test the drives functionality,

    IMPORTANT NOTE for USB 2.0 to IDE adapter laed

    If you get the lead pay particular attention when connecting the laptop drive to the connector,

    if its around the wrong way you could fry the drive,

    there are no markings to tell which way the correct way is.

    How to Identify the correct position for this lead

    Hold drive in your hand looking at the exposed pins at the end,

    There should be two rows

    look at the center of the two rows,

    should be one complete row and one with missing pins.

    turn the missing pins side to the top

    take the adapter in the other hand,

    there is a notch in one side for 3.5" hard drives

    turn the notch to the top face notch towards you

    line up your pins

    connect to drive,

    should fit on without removing hard drive holder.(mine does)

    Let me know if this helps,thanks

My compaq presario V6000 is stop working out of blue..Don't know why..the power cable is connected but hit the power button,nothing happens..any solution ??

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.

My compute will not turn on

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.

Compaq Presario V6000 not turning/powering on

This can be a tricky problem indeed. As a matter of fact, I'm experiencing a similar problem myself. I don't know if you have done this or not so I'm going to throw it out there:

Have you tried plugging it into a charger and starting it? If so, how about without the battery?

Also, if the laptop isn't charging, check to see if the charger is faulty. The end could be bent, or something inside could simply not be working.

The most likely problem if none of these help is that the port itself is shot. In that case, you'll have to take it to a computer shop and have them diagnose it for you just to be sure.

Hope I was of assistance.

My Compaq v6000 notebook doesnt power on it just

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.

When I turn my V6000 on, I have power lights and the fan starts for 5 secs then shuts off. Nothing appears on the screen!

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 !!
