Will not turn on, last time used, I turned it off manually?
The last time I used my HP Pavilion DV6500t which was purchased in Oct. 2007, I was in a hurry to turn it off. I pushed the start-stop button to shut it down. The next time I tried to use it, it wouldn't turn on.
I had it plugged in @ the time, and the battery is fully charged?

Try to drain the static energy of the motherboard first by follwing this steps.
Take out the battery
Unplugged the power adapter
Press and hold the power button for 30 secs
Put the battery back in
Plugged in the power adapter
Turn ON the computer
If still NO display. You need to call HP tech support department for this could be a mainbaord issue. Since you mention that system is running hot. Computer fan might stop working that damages the mainboard.
Stop using your laptop, bring it to certifies laptop shop like ours ( GlobalPcLaptop Philippines) Your processor fan got wet and the rest of your components, as of now it is working, but it will create GREAT DAMAGE to your wet laptop, worst it will become DEADSET.
From Control Panel, click System, Device Manager, click + beside DVD Drive, right click you drive and select properties, DVD Region Tab, and change Region to Canada. You can only chnage this 5 times until it locks on the last change. Look into a program called AnyDVD as it will play Region Free.
If at all possible " do not try and clean the fan yourself " you will kill the m/board - take it to an auth Hp serice agent and get a new CPU heatsink assy & fan unit fitted. I work on Hp units all the time and I am always very carefull of the electrostatic conditions. Try and do it yourself and it will prove expensive. If you have warranty log a service call for a replacement heatsink Glenn
If you're familiar with laptop disassembly, then yes you could replace the fan yourself, but I would probably recommend taking it to an authorized service center, especially if you are within warranty (disassembling it yourself could potentially void your warranty). There's no easy way to replace the fans on these models, sadly, it'll require taking apart the entire bottom casing, keyboard and all, as the fans will each have power connections leading into the motherboard. If you're out of warranty though, the fans themselves shouldn't be too terribly expensive, maybe around the $30-50 USD mark.
The cables for these are fairly specific, but if you have a cbale that has the same plugs and fits both the transformer side and the computer side, you cna use that as a replacement. The cord itself has no polarity. Are you looking to do something else here?
