It sounds like you are stuck in the bios. There is several way to reset it


1 - If you have your motherboard manual look for instructions on how to reset your bios. The is a jumper (set of pins) on the board that will reset it.


2 -  Unplug your unit from the AC, open the case. Look for a lithium battery and remove it. In the battery socket short the led?s for about 30 seconds. replace the battery close the case.


Note - Be careful when removing the battery.

This motherboard has the Nvidia graphics (GPU) which is BGA (ball grid array) soldered to the PCB (printed circuit board). Instead of using pins on the chip that are soldered through the PCB it is instead sat on top of tiny solder balls that fuse it to hundreds of 'contact pads' on the motherboard when it is heated during manufacture.
Due to the impressive performance of the little Nvidia GPU, it generates quite some heat and the lead-free (WEEE compliant) solder cracks and the whole board fails.
It seems that manufacturers do not want to go back to the reliable 'pin method' as it costs more money and fitting a bigger heat sink, especially in laptops would make them bigger and less saleable!
It seems that although a bigger heat sink is fitted on these motherboards it is made from a crappy light-weight aluminium metal with an inadequate thermal pad and a limp sprung tensioner to secure it.
Inserting a PCIe / AGP card after the Nvidia failure will NOT bypass the issue most of the time.
Your best bet is to heat the chip with a blow lamp (unless you have a re-flow station) but as gingerly as gingerly can be, i.e. don't toast it to the board until it is on fire. And don't press it down either!

If it didn't work then you haven't lost anything, being that you

The problem is that when u start the laptop it will come on but after some time it goes and yet the indicator light will still be on and nothing will respond again. its hp nc6000 laptop

Hi Sir_chiks,

I see that you are epxeriencing a no boot no video issue on your Laptop.

Have you tried power cycling the Laptop, turn the Laptop OFF then unhook the AC ADapeter remove the battery then press and hold down the power button for about 15 seconds this should drian way all the reamaining power from the systemboard. once the power cycling is done. reconenct the Adapter and the battery on the Laptop and try turning it ON again see if the machien will boot back into windows.

If still the issue is the same, try going into the BIOS of your Laptop see if it will boot to the BIOS.
If the system boots to BIOS set the BIOS to defaults tehn restart the machine, but if it does not boot inot the BIOS then there is something wrong porbably with the motherboard.

I hope that this few detail can help.

Have a nice day,

Computer powers up but wont display anything or respond to any buttons. HDD light flashes along with the CD drive. The problem started after holding down the power button for 5 seconds to do a emergency...

Weird though I dought that had anything to do with it. I would start by replacing the ram this will cause a no video boot as will a bad or overheated cpu. First b4 u spend money on the ram try hooking the external VGA output to another monitor see if u get boot screen. If not then start with the ram. If that doesnt fix it it may be a faulty motherboard which means time for a new laptop. Always get a shop to look at it b4 u trash though....

Turns on fan runs but no info to the monitor doesnt seem to boot

If the Monitor is displaying no infomation at all, your display signal from the PC to the monitor has failed.
1: Check the cable between the monitor and PC
2: If you are using onboard graphics then that display port is faulty.
3: If you are using a graphics card then remove it and try the onboard graphics.
4: Your monitor maybe faulty aswell so test it on another computer to be safe.

Its more likely to be option 2
