Question about HP Computers & Internet
I would check the memory first. If you have two sticks of ram in it. Take one out the try to start it. if you have no luck, switch it with the other one. Then try a restart.
If you have lights but black screen, your video (gpu) may be bad. The fix depends on the model you have. In most cases, it is a motherboard replacement. If you have a DV6000-DV9000 they are notorious for having bad solder. It comes loose and loses connection. You can take the motherboard from the laptop case, heat the gpu for about 30 seconds (with a heat gun), and hold pressure on it for 1 minute. When you put it back together, put silver grease on the gpu and lay a copper shim ( I use a penny) between the gpu and the heat sink. This fix works 75% of the time, but it is not a permanent fix. You may get month out of it, 6 months if you are lucky. You will eventually replace the motherboard
