Compaq presario v6000 laptop powering down with no warning

I've had my laptop now for about 1 year, all has been fine until a few months ago when it started to power down with no warning. Thinking its a heat problem, thought i would see if i could clean the fan, but cant get to the fan without what it would seem to be as breaking it. oh and how do i clean the keyboard?

If not, then the keyboard cable has probably come loose.
Look for some way to remove the keyboard. Sometimes a screw from underneath, sometimes two or three small catches at front of keyboard (small gaps in metal plate in front of space bar). Sometimes top plastic bar above keyboard slides sideways.

Keyboard cable uses goes into a header socket - to refit:
Switch off and remove battery and power first!
1. Prise up each end of the socket with a blunt knife - the outer part of the socket should move up a few mm
2. Push keyboard cable down fully
3. Push down each end of the header socket so it is flush with the lower part of the socket.
4. Test keyboard

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.

Compaq presario v6000 laptop when switched on blue lcd lights on only,can hear fan on but windows does'nt install and nothing on lcd screen what so ever. Every few minutes i hear a click noise and lcd...


It is the motherboard. The V6000, V2000 as well as the siblings in the HP line DV2000, DV6000, and DV9000 all have the same issue. In my opinion is from the oxidation of the motherboard contacts before the nVidia BallGridArray chips are hot air soldered to the board.

As the laptop heats and cools, these .014mm balls expand and contract. Where there is a poor solder pad, the solderball unsticks from the contact surface.

I have repaired 22+ in the month of October alone.

Laptop CD/DVD Drive


I think buying a USB DVD drive is a very sensible idea as internal drives on laptops can be a pain to remove and fit and they are more prone to failure than their desktop brothers because of their flimsy construction.

Charging problem.


Since your laptop is one year old, i guess you still have warranty on it. Your battery is bad and you need a new one. Go to the shop and request a new one by the warranty.
