A family friend of ours handed over his old dv6308 because he was having trouble with it. We attempted to figure out what was wrong with it and never really succeeded. Apparently it has become ours and I am sick of the paper weight, so I wanted to get it fixed or pitch it.

Problem is as follows: When I power it on all of the lights kick on, but nothing comes up on the screen... after a short period of time, the computer shuts off and turns back on again, and just keeps cycling like that.

All the fans whir and everything... just nothing on the screen and it wont stay on.

do you have it plugged in or is it just running off your battery?

Tried all sorts of power options..... May be Mobo... seems to be a problem with the HP dv6000 series... is their warranty just 1 year?

Yes their warrant is 1 year.. Your switch might be messed up I would try cleaning it. Give them a call ask them how much to repair or replacements.
