My hp pavilion dv 6000 series is five months old.
Recently there was a battery charging problem, and I had sent the laptop to the HP service center, from where I got the PC board changed(they said it was the PC board which was causing the error).
Now, after getting the pcboard changed, my laptop shuts down without any warning after 15 - 20 minutes of usage.(I have a feeling it shuts down whenever I use the hard disk intensively, like while using the Windows Disk clean up , or other softwares like photoshop).
Sometimes, it shuts down even when am not using/running any problems.
I even flashed the bios to the latest version, it still has the problem.
If I send the laptop to the HP service center, it will take another month or so.
So, if someone could help me, I'd very appreciate it.

It sounds like something is overheating to me. Also, it could be a bad motherboard. Try putting your laptop on a hard surface. I carnt stress this enough. Also, you can try cleaning out the laptops cooling vents with some compressed air (you can get it at pcworld). At the end of the day and it still wont work, send it in for repair. Good luck
If yourlaptop shuts down abruptly (looses power), find a repair shop that can resolveor change the DC power jack as soon as possible, as the motherboard has alreadystarted to burn around the dislodged pins. <a rel='nofollow' href="http://www.itsfixed.com.au/computer-repair-brisbane/">computer repair brisbane</a>

The HP DV series are known for bad motherboards and yours sounds to have the symptom indicating a failed motherboard.You can try different ram and see if thats it or remove the hard drive and power it on and see if it shuts down without it.If it still shuts off its most likely the infamous DV series curse

Batteries fail alot, and what they dont tell you is that modern Li-on batteries get damaged if you leave your computer plugged in all the time.
You need to charge the battery and then run it on battery power.
Sounds like your battery is knackered, you can get replacements. I googled your model and found 1 for £23 http://www.1pcdiy.com/hp-compaq-laptop-batteries/1481/
I have reviewed your problem and have the fallowing for you to aces. First, if you have only had this unit for 5 or 6 months, get it back to HP under warranty ASAP. I work for HP and we offer a 1 year standard warranty and a extended 1 year for Display and Graphic problems. Please, do yourself a favor and contact customer care and they will send you a Box, per paid and will have the unit back to you within 1 working week, at no charge to you.
Hope to hear from you.
Let me know if you need anything.
Charger is bad and is not putting out the correct voltage which causes the computer to shut down. Battery probably isn't much good either if it only lasts for one hour. Get new batter and charger. Ebay'ers will help you find one cheap.
it is not your battery that is the problem but the charger so you will need to go somewere like officemax and buy a universal charger and if you still have problems then call HP tech support there friendly people
