Hello TH community,

Today I decided to repair a laptop I had previously repaired. So lets start from the beginning. The laptop was first overheated and had a defect CMOS. The problem was that the fan was not connected, this I reconnected and applied new coolpaste to the processor and such. I also replaced the CMOS. After this the computer worked all good for 1-2 weeks. Yesterday when I shut down my laptop and decided to start it up after 1 hr again it gave me the black screen, with the fan running. I took out each RAM sick one by one and tried starting it up, didnt work. I tried to connect it to an external monitor, didnt give signal. Tried resetting the power, didnt work. So I opened my laptop and removed the old coolpaste because I saw that I placed a bit too much. And applied new one. This took about 2 hrs. I tried booting it again and it didnt work.

So then I desperately tried removing the battery and power cable. I held the power button for 60 seconds, put the cable in (not the battery) and tried starting it up. IT STARTED.

But whenever I shut down my laptop and place the battery in and try to start the laptop it gives me again the black screen. When I do the 60 seconds procedure it boots again.

What can I do to make this a permanent fix?

Thanks in advance.


model: hp pavilion dv6 Notebook PC
 
Hi,

Have you tried testing the laptop if it will behave the same without the battery connected? Meaning remove the battery and leave the AC adapter then shut it down completely and see if turns on with no problem because if it does it maybe time to replace the battery itself because it already faulty and may cause more damage to your system.

Oops wrong button, didnt mean to put the 'Fixed' mark on your comment xD

Hello L_N,

I have tried that already, that's actually the first thing I've done. When I would finally manage to get into the system I would just simply reconnect the battery and it would just accept it.

I've done some things in BIOS and removed the 'High Performance' option in the Energy Properties since the pavilion dv6 series are known for fast overheating, perhaps turning off this option somehow gave the laptop enough energy to boot properly? And now everything is functioning again, but for how long is the question. I hope I have permanently fixed this.

Greets,
A
