If your HP Pavillion dv6000 has a battery that won't charge yet still turns on when plugged in, turn off the laptop and remove the battery then wait for around 30 seconds, re-insert it and turn it back on, the charging update should say, plugged in, charging.

Reinstalling the power management software will fix this problem. Go to device manager and under batteries, unistall the Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery. Go to Actions on the menu bar and select 'scan for hardware changes'. It will reinstall it and hopefully start charging immediately.
