    If i press the power button the blue lights flick on for about 1/2 sec, the fan and hdd spin also for 1/2 then the laptop switches off.

    I have tried,

    ac power without battery
    battery on it own
    tryin each stick of ram individually
    removing hd
    removing dvd drive

    but the same with each

    any idea?

    It's a known fault with HP mobos of that generation...
    If you have warranty, give them a call.

    This is a known issue with DV9000 laptops acutally a lot of compaq/hq laptops just do a search on google for dv9000 recall. But I think most of them are now out of the extended warranty also. also hplies . com has people who are started a website with stats on how many of these lapops have gone bad.

    The problem in most cases is the nvidia video chip on the MB. I have reparied many which turn on and then do not display anything.

    Also try to do a search on youtube and you will find how to fix some of these.. solder reflow on video cards works with a heatgun....

    if its just a bad motherboard then you'll have to replace it good luck...
