Well, I've had the problem for a while and was just looking around to see if anyone has had any success stories.

I will tell you how I get mine up and running, but first some background. I was gifted this computer DOA and asked to retrieve data which I was able to do but in monkeying around, I discovered a "fix".

You see, I live in an area where we occassionally lose power for a day or two or three so the weakened battery never outlasts the outage. That's when the unit becomes unstartable.

Now the fix:
It is a variation of all the other suggestions about undoing the power cord and disconnecting the battery but here's the twist: After removing the battery and power cord, wrap your laptop in one then another plastic shopping bag and place it in the freezer for about an hour or two. Now, when you take out your shivering laptop, plug in the power cord and fire her up. It has nearly always started for me after this trial by cold but once or twice it needed more chillin'. Once it is started, insert the battery. I've never had any issues with this sequence.

You will have a lot of condensate on the screen but gently wipe it up with an absorbent cloth and let the rest of air dry as you let it run.

As long as I leave the computer plugged in and not reliant on the battery, it has never died on me.

Hope this helps!

Don't know who figured this out but... My HP DV6 computer would not turn on...the blue light was on next to the power cord but when I pushed the power button nothing would happen...I found a link that had these instructions and it worked...try this before you spend money on fixing it

Unplug the cord, take out the battery, pushdown and hold the power button for thirty seconds( I held mine for 45 just to be sure), let go, plug in power cord make sure blue light comes on, replace battery, push the power button and it will come on.

Just a theory, but I think this may work. Go to the power settings for your battery/ac adapter. Go to advanced options and disable all references to "sleep" or "hibernate". My guess is the laptop is thinking it is in sleep or hibernate mode and that is why it is not powering up.
