I recently had the video chip give out on my AMD motherboard. I purchased another, this time I went with an intel motherboard. First question is this ok to swap out motherboards of a different processor?

Second question, I installed the intel motherboard. turn the laptop on the three seconds later it shut itself down and restarted. I had no HDD activity and my screen was blank. Would the new motherboard be defective?

I took out both RAM and restarted same thing shut down and restarted but heard no beeps or error messages. I am getting ready to RMA and get another.

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated

I'm confused. The info I find for the DV6500 shows it came with an Intel Mobo/CPU.
Are you saying the laptop came with an AMD Mobo/CPU and you installed a Intel Mobo/CPU?

yes the laptop is a dv 6500 product actually dv6646 bought at circuit city. came with an AMD MBO. the graphics card went out and I purchased a new MBO intel/CPU. I installed everything started the laptop up, it powered on then 3 sec later shut itself down and restarted. All during the process no HDD activity on the light panel and no thing on the screen. I even tried plugging it into a different monitor but that screen was blank.

HP dv6500 no power

I have rebuilt my laptop. Replaced MBO, power board, CPU...I have plugged in the adapter and the blue ring lights up but I have no light on the indicator on the front, I place the battery in and the indicator lights up. Remove the battery and the indicator light goes out, all this with the adapter plugged in. I press the on/off button but I have no power at all, even with the battery and adapter plugged in. I had switched out the newly installed 90W powerboard with the older 65W board but still had the same results. The laptop actually was powered on a few days earlier and was running perfectly with all drivers updated and windows 7 downloaded and updated.

I am thinking that it may be with the on/off board and cables.

If anyone has any possible solutions that would be most helpful.
