I have an HP Pavilion DV6000 laptop that I have been using since 2007. This morning when I turned it on it was working fine for a minute then it just shut down and would not start again. I could hear a clicking sound a few seconds apart. When I took out the battery, the sound stopped.
A few hours later I put the battery back in and tried to boot it. This time the lights were working but the screen was still blank. There are no error beeps.
After reviewing several posts online my guess is that one of the capacitors on the motherboard burnt out or it short circuited, but I’m not sure.
If you have any expertise in this area please help me out here.
