Hi dalelatenite,

Please provide a little more details about the problem. Is the computer restarting before it shows the Windows Splash Screen or before it? Are you able to enter the BIOS?

If the computer goes past the initial startup screen, then tap the F8 key and select Safe Mode and check if it stays there.

Do reply with results.
It doesn't reach any initial boot up, as i press the power button and the lights and fan come on, it shuts back down, that loop continues until i hit the escape button.

When i do hit the escape button the lights stay on but nothing on d screen. d hard drive light doesnt come on either

Hi dalelatenite,

I have checked the symptoms you have mentioned. Try the below mentioned steps and check if there is any change:

1. Remove the AC adapter and Battery from the computer.
2. Press and hold the power button for 10-15 seconds and then release. This will release any flea power in the machine.
3. Put the AC adapter and Battery back and try to power on the computer and see if there is any change.
4. If the computer still doesn't function as normal, remove the AC adapter and then power on only with the Battery. Alternatively, check only on AC adapter as well.
5. If the computer still doesn't power on, take a technician's help or by yourself remove the following components from the computer and then power on:

a. Hard Drive
b. Memory Module
c. Mini Card Module
d. Optical Drive
e. Keyboard

You can find steps on how to remove these components from the Service Manual of HP Pavilion dv6000 Notebook PC (http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c01035677.pdf

Note: Perform Step 5 only if you are comfortable working with the internal components of your computer. Otherwise, it is always advisable to take a technician's help. Please go through the "Removal and Replacement Preliminaries" section of the manual before opening the chassis.

6. If the computer powers on and stays on with these components removed. Try connecting these components one at a time each and try to power on. This will help you identify as to what component is causing the problem.
7. After isolating replace the faulty component.

Please revert if above steps don't fix the problem.

Do reply with results.
