Try reseting the BIOS to its defaults by following the instructions below :

Start or restart the Notebook and start tapping the F10 key immideatly you see the HP logo.

Now, in this press the F9 key to load the BIOS Default settings.

Press the F10 key to save the settings and exit the BIOS setup window.

Additionally, check by connecting any USB Keyboard to the Notebook if available.

Additionally, find the Product Number of the Notebook which is indicated with P/N printed on a white sticker pasted at the bottom of the notebook.

Open HP.com and enter this in the search field at the top right column.

Click on Software & Driver downloads and select the Operating System in the Notebook which should be Vista.

Scroll down to find BIOS under which you will find the BIOS Updates available for your Notebook.

Download and save the latest BIOS Update available.

Close all the windows and applications and double click on the file to update the BIOS.

Donot attempt to access any application or turn it off or restart when the BIOS is being updated as this will damage the BIOS Chip and make the Notebook useless.

The Notebook will restart automatically after the BIOS is Updated.

Hope this helps...

My laptop compaq presario v6000 does not switch on but the power light comes on when the chager is on. when i try to turn the computer on it just flick the light on then back off. can anyone yep me to


The DC pin on your laptop is bent/broken/loose. Look at where your power adapter plugs in on your laptop. Get a paper clip, bend it out to make a long paper clip and slightly push its tip on the pin inside your laptop. If the pin moves chances are either the DC pin needs to be soldered down or needs to be replaced. The part is usually cheap around $10 but the labor can cost more than $50.

Can't access laptop computer in safe mode, keyboard freeze up


Try booting your system from a LIVE cd like linux, a verson of Hiren's tools, or the UBCD (ultimate boot disc for windows). If your keyboard still freezes with the alternate OS, you may have a hardware malfunction.

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.

Compaq Presario V6000 rebooting blank screen


I am almost sure that it is a motherboard. When all of the lights stay solid and it seems to start, but shuts off is most likely the motherboard. You can save the data if you get a proper enclosure for the hard drive. You can call Compaq support to make sure that those signs are the motherboard.

Pink Screen on a Compaq Presario V6000


Ok, to resolve this you will need to troubleshoot a little further.
Get hold of an external monitor and plug it up to the laptop, switch screens with the keyboard if you have to, if the colour is still the same then i'm afraid its the video card thats faulty and you will have to have it looked at

Good luck
