hi,my laptop hp omnibook 6000 will not start i hoped you would be able to help. its simple it will not start at all it will not go through the post as well you can only hear like the HD or cd rom try to start and than nothing the CD Rom is working i mean you can only open it. i thing its CPU but maybe its some else .i have tested HD in different laptop and it works fine. i really do not know. would it be cpu fan? i have noticed once when laptop started that the fan kicked in as well so maybe its fan that is faulty and that's why laptop wont start. if you have any ideas please feel free and write some i will try any other suggestions. o yes i forgot to mention why it all started it was because my little niece dropped it couple times on the floor :) no joke true.

not a techy suggestion but have you checked your home insurance for accidental damage,dropping once isnt very good at all but twice..

Try taking the Battery out and just Mains plugged in, as battery if faulty can stop it booting. i have not used my battery since getting the laptop, it's only plugged in when I go away on holiday

Only other thing Without taking it to the shop, Take the Hard Drive out then Refite it, as it may have got tarnish on connections. should be about two screws that hold it in at the side or at the bottom

Hi everyone,turned laptop on this morning and it wont boot up.
Power light comes on,a 2 second hard drive activity and then nothing.
Tried it with battery out but still nothing.
Took hard drive out and reseated,still nothing
Think hard drive has failed,but anyone got any more ideas please.
