Hi everyone I have a serious problem. I bought this laptop 2 weeks ago and the guy said it needed charger. Well I buy a charger and plug it up and when it booted to windows it said error windows has been shut down to prevent damage to windows. So geek squad more like joke squad told me I needed a hard drive so I order a hard drive. I have not loaded windows on the new hard drive yet because now when i go to turn on computer it says the compaq logo and then jumps to a screen that says initializing link then gives code pxe-e61 media test failure then says under it exiting intel boot agentand the lights on the volume button and mute button is always lit up and stay lit any suggestions could the sound card be bad please help.

v6000 or dv6000.

If it's the dv6000 begin the return process. You do not want one.

Type DV6000 RECALL to learn why you must not buy any used dv6000 or dv9000 model.

The screen never lights up . The battery has not held charge in a year. I did read somewhere to disconnect all power , remove battery and hold the power button to " reset ? " . Nothing .

In reply to: Hi

Tell more, please. Such as why you post in existing thread about a dv6000. Do you have the same?
