I have an an HP P6000 Pavilion PC that will not boot.

It's about 1 year old.  It boots to the HP Bios screen and then it's stuck and won't go any farther.

It's model:  p6644y

I've tried to unhook the card reader and then boot but it still won't do anything.

Are you able to run onboard diagnostics by entering the BIOS are boot from a Recovery CD?

When you say it can't boot, are there any beeps?  Can you go into the BIOS?

no beeps and I can't get into the Bios.

It freezes at the blue HP screen right at the options to get into the bios

Interesting - did you make any changes recently?  Open the box, check your memory seating, any error LEDs on the mobo?  

Try disconnecting all peripherals and only have the cpu, 1 ram stick, video card, attached to the mobo.  See if it will boot.  Clear out any dust bunnies around the area and near the PSU.

If it will not boot from a recovery CD and it will not boot into BIOS, then your motherboard is probably fried. Based your observations here, that appears to be the likely candidate. Other answers here suggest the same thing.

you still have warranty?   use it
otherwise, use the minimum setup as described in my article : http://www.experts-exchange.com/Hardware/Components/Motherboards/A_1945.html                  (Short-overview-of-how-to-troubleshoot-bad-hardware-when-a-pc-does-not-post)

you can try to boot from cd with disk disconnected, or boot from disk with cd disconnected

in case the disk is problematic, this can help :
