HP Pavillion dv6 Power problem Tags: Laptops Last response: August 9, 2013 4:25 PM in Laptops & Notebooks Share cdathome August 9, 2013 1:13:39 PM Hi, I've got an HP Pavillion laptop, dv6-6121, that died on me this morning. It has no power to it at all, ie no lights come on at all and nothing tries to start up. I checked that I have the correct voltage getting to the laptop, and took the laptop apart and verified that the DC jack is actually getting power to the motherboard. Does this mean that the mother board is bad? Let me know if you have any thoughts/recommendations. Thanks.

How did you verify the DC jack works? Reply to Prostar Computer cdathome August 9, 2013 2:14:36 PM I pulled the connector where it plugs into the motherboard and checked it with a multimeter, was able to get the same dc voltage that I was getting when testing the power cord.
