I own a HP Pavillion DV6000 that is about 1 1/2 years old. When you try to power it up ,either with ac power or battery, the power indicator blinks briefly and it does nothing.

Have you tried starting without battery inside?  If so try that...if it starts, battery may need to flushed...if that doesn't work, battery is cause an error...

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

try with disk and cd drive removed, and only 1 ram stick - disconnect all add on cards
if it syill does not show a display, your motherboard looks dead

ok...as nobus said, try removing ram...however more than likely you would have heard a beep if this was the case...that also goes for a bad vid card....
