I believe this machine has the Nvidia 8600 GPU. Apple is still replacing the logic boards with defective GPUs on these for free. There was a class action suit on this GPU. HP may also be repairing them for free. You might wants to check with them on it. Here's some info on it: http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Ha...

Try hooking up to external monitor, if still no video then probably the motherboard, the DV9000 has a recall on the AMD Motherboards, they overheat. It will still act like it's booting and the fan will run with a bad mother board, I've replaced several and it's beginning to be not worth it to the consumer, check to see if it's still under warranty too. Also the DV6000 has issues too for all of you that have that model, virtually same MB as the DV9000.

I had the same exact problem with a gateway gt5670 desktop. I replaced the motherboard and installed everything and the cpu fan and system fan would spin but no video or LED light. By the way it was my brothers pc I was working on. Tried an external monitor and it detected nothing. So i took out the cpu and found it had a bent pin. Replaced it with and known working cpu and the pc powered and posted. Using it now. Hope this helps.

The sentence " Tried an external monitor and it detected nothing" was a laptop I was working on. Disregard that sentence. Sorry about that. Everything else is correct.
